7.5 mg or 5 mg celexa

Posted , 4 users are following.

Has anyone stabilized and had good effect being on only 7.5 or 5 mg celexa? Was on 10 and couldn't handle the side effects. Just wanted to know if these mgs finally work?

    I was on 20 but went down to 10 because of brutal side effects. I've stabilized 7 weeks in. Feel good and back to normal!

      2 months in and not stable yet. Going to go to 5 and just stay there. Can't go off, withdrawals would be too brutal. Figure 5 mg will give me less added anxiety as I already had anxiety before this. Glad your doing well.

    Nancy you can recover on 5 milligrams..my phychiatrist has many patients on five milligrams..as far as 7.5 perhaps..but I know for sure because I have talk to patients in the waiting room who are on five milligrams..

      Thank you hon, you give me hope. Still on 7.5, feeling as though my body is more stable, getting ready to go to 5. I just need hope that going through is worth it. Thanks for the support. Did those patients finally have their anxiety go away?

      Did it take some of them a while to stabilize at 5? Like it took months for you at 10? Am I wasting my time? Should I just bite the bullet and keep going? Don't feel like I can change to anything else. Feel like I have no choice. What do you think?
