celexa side effects

Edited , 3 users are following.

Taking celexa for 3 weeks and 2 days. Depression has lifted somewhat... not crying. The pins and needles are driving me nuts. have had 2 nights good sleep since taking this. i wake up after 2-3 hours and thats it I've tried melatonin, benadryl, and theyre only good for about 2 hrs sleep. Help! Does this get any better?

      4 weeks now. Mornings are the worst. Dont get enough sleep, feel the pins and needles thing although it really isnt pins and needles, more like mild shivers . Dr has me scheduled for doppler on carotid arteries, blood test. stress in my life is complicating things tremendously .
