Your post about "brain does flip flops" caught my attention. This was a symptom I was having prior to taking Celexa. It has continued, though to a lesser degree while taking Celexa. I have been on Celexa for 27 days now.
I started Celexa (20 mg) as treatment for depression. When I went to my doctor, my symptoms were insomnia (less than 4 hrs a night for 2 years!), crying for no reason, lack of interest in hobbies, family activities, etc., lack of interest in my job, difficulty focusing, hopelessness and inability to lose weight. I am taking the Celexa at night and have never slept better in my life! I am a little groggy in the morning, but it wears off by about 8 am. I still exercise every day. I have started to enjoy my hobbies again, life feels good again -- finally. I'm not scared to go to bed at more nightmares, panic attacks or staring at the ceiling. I do get the occasional "brain quake" -- that's the only way to describe it. It feels like a little electronic earthquake in my head, for about 2 seconds and is gone. It's frightening, but doesnt last long. The other side effect I've noticed is gastrointestinal. (gas & constipation). It has to be the celexa because that is the only thing I've changed. I can live with this, no problem. I'm just thankful for Celexa because I can sleep again, and I am starting to feel like my "old" self again. Happy to be alive!
