    Hi Olivia, I take at night and sleep well. Still pretty tired some days but expect that will resolve in the weeks ahead.

    What do you love about Celexa? Curious because I am just starting week 5 at 20mg and still feel like hell. Many side effects the worst being incredible morning anxiety. Wondering when side effects got better for you.

    Thx Shane

      Hi Shane! i'm sorry about the side effects you have been having. i had terrible side effects the first week on 10 mg, puking, nauseous, awful headaches. then when i increased to 20 mg my head aches got worse but after about 2 weeks at 20 mg they went away. i began taking celexa at around 330 , 4 pm instead of before bed time and my side effects have gotten better. hang in there!!

      Interesting. Maybe I will try taking earlier rather than bedtime. Do you have any morning Anxiety? How long have you been on Celexa in total?

      I find that taking a walk even a short one helps with the daytime drowsiness. Even though it is the last thing I feel like doing!

      Take care! SHANE
