I've had the same problem you mention, with Celexa, minimally, and now Prozac. My pdoc actually did think it was the SSRI's and I believe Cam, our resident pharmacist, had agreed. But for some it goes away. It's definitely gone down for me, but then I'm also lowering the dosage.

I don't know why this is, but would love to find out, becuase it's not a good side effect for me (I was not experiencing anxiety problems before this). I'm Bipolar and am switching from Topamax to Lamictal (sedating stabilizer to activating one) and then I don't know about the Prozac.

I've also head that adding a small amount of Zyprexa at night can help (?).
