> If I were you, I'd go back on 20mg Celexa and attempt to withdraw from it (very gradually) only after I'd adjusted to the start-up side effects of reboxetine.

That sounds like good advice, except that I only have about two weeks (at 20mg) of celexa left...

> Don't tell your GP that you're taking citalopram and reboxetine together. He won't be happy because the manufacturer of reboxetine recommends that reboxetine shouldn't be taken with SSRIs. Don't worry, there isn't any good science behind this - it's just the manufacturer covering their back.

Can't really do this because of not having enough celexa. If I go back to the doctor, he might not like the celexa and reboxetine together, although, he is pretty amenable and seems to listen to what i say.

> PS. I'm not sure what your symptoms are. Reboxetine is likely to be more effective for depressive symptoms such as lethargy than it is for anxiety.

LETHARGY is me personified. I can't do anything, and sleep regualary for like 12 hours. I have no energy/motivation whatsoever. I just about manage to get into my naff admin job for 9.30am. Which is why I'm very keen to try reboxetine. I do suffer from aniexty/panic attacks, but I read that reboxetine is also helpful for this. However, i realise that celexa is very good for this, but at this point in my life, I can't cope with the lethargy and the no motivation. If I get some of my aniexty back, then I'll deal with it, maybe if I keep taking a low dose of celexa?

I have taken my first 1mg of reboxetine a few hours ago, and so far, I seem to be okay. Obviously its early early days yet.

I'll take the 10mg tomorrow morning, just out of habit really with the morning dose of 1mg reboxeine. If the celexa withdrawal gets bad, I guess i'll have to go back to the GP because I don't have enough celexa anymore to keep up the 20mg dose.

I'll let you know how its going! : )
