> How much are you taking? Maybe you should start with 10 mg and gradually work up to a higher dose if necessary. It made me tired for a few weeks but it wasn't too bad. It decreased my appetite a little.

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.

I started taking 20 mg celexa in January for headaches/migraines. I began gaining weight almost immediately. When I returned to my doctor in 2 months, he put me on 10 mg hoping that it would control the weight gain. It did not, however, the last 2 months I have been seriously trying to diet and have lost a few pounds but not nearly enough. I have to be so rigid about what I eat in order to loose even 1 lb. Tuesday I ate dinner around 8:30 pm and when I woke up the next day I had a weight gain of 3 lbs. and today I still have the 3 lbs. on. It is very frustrating because it helps my headaches/migraines but I am just frustrated about the weight. Good luck.
