> Well, most side effects do go away after a while. Celexa takes a couple of week to kick in. Sexual side effects go away for some people, and for some they don't. For those who still suffer after a while, I recommend adding low dose Remeron with very high chances of success.

I have been going through a divorce and have been mildly (I guess) depressed, have had some anxiety and a panic attack or two. My father was Manic Depressive and when I told my doctor this she put me on 10mg of Celexa. I had just gone in for an annual physical and left with anti depressants?

My doctor just prescribed this for me yesterday, so today is only my second day. What scares me is the weight gain. My depression stems mostly because of me being 75 pounds overweight (I informed the doc of this). He gave this to me because of my irritability and mood swings. I had a baby 11 months ago and I sleep well but get very little as it is with a baby. So far I have had uncontrollable yawns and feel very tired, but I cannot afford to be sleepy all the time either with a baby. I only get on average 7 hours per night on the weekends too. I am 32 and have never been on AD's before. Sorry this is so long but need advice.
