> > Was SO glad to find this thread. Have been off and on AD for about 5 years. Started on Celexa 6 days ago and have no recollection of side effects like this before. Slept for 2 solid day, diahrea is unspeakable and nausea has caused me to lose 5 lbs. so far. Was beginning to wonder if soemthing else was the matter with me until I started to read the psotings here.

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 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.

> He started me out on 10 for 1 week then i go to 20. I don't think i have a big problem with depression just with irritablitlity
> so maybe i can stay at 20. Most people seems to say it is the higher dose that makes you gain weight. But I am afraid to add something
> like well butrin with it cause people say it makes you irritable and I don't need that. So confused...
