    dont panick it doesnt mean you wont improve x the fact you have felt good is a really good sign and even though they say 12 weeks it can take longer.

    your hormones will play a big part in why you feel poo atm.

    my partner was like you felt like crap once a month after doing really well. eventually it died down enough to be manageable and not really bother her any more x chin up it will pass.

    remember each time you increase you have to start the timer again so you have plenty of time to improve as time goes on x 😊

    Hey chrissy, I'm currently on week 9 of celexa. Started with 10mg for 2 weeks then 20mg after that. I can tell you that its been a rollercoaster ride. I've had some good weeks and some not so good days but it is working. stick with it and let it set in. I might be increasing my dose to 30mg depending on what my Doc says on wednesday when i see her. GOOD LUCK and stay possitive!

    Doesn't mean that at all! Me as a woman also have that during my normal PMS time, with or without meds most of us as females deal with that. You're not at square one, its only your hormones going a little nuts right now, that is normal. Just keep telling yourself that its temporary, and should go after the PMS. Don't worry yourself! 😃
