I take 20mg of Celexa per day. I started 1 month ago because I felt I was unnecessarily suffering from Anxiety and Depression. I quit my job and layed in bed for months... Finally went to a doctor and asked for Celexa (was recommended it by a counsellor). She said it'd help with my issues. I was nervous as hell to take them, as I tried Paxil once, for a short time, and it sucked! I put it off for months... Until my last anxiety attack... I finally said "That's enough".
Anyway... I started them one month ago and the worst side effects I felt were... metallic taste in mouth for no more than 2 days?... and minor headache on day 1 and 2. Minor nausea but honestly nothing I couldn't handle, without drugs. First 2 weeks I ate ALOT, felt so hungry and never full!... And honestly, now I just feel normal. I don't feel like my brain is constantly running a mile a minute or coming up with worst case scenarios, I even feel more confident in myself, I feel secure in my relationship.
I used to feel insecure and mentally exhausted on the daily!!! No exaggeration. It hindered my relationship as I never wanted to hang out with people, especially women. I never went grocery shopping as I felt insecure about people noticing my insecurness (that a word?).... I used to worry about everything, I was the master of what ifs.... But now... I feel relief... I'm actually kind of bored sometimes now. My mind is at peace. I can think about ONE THING AT A TIME now. I made friends with my step daughters bio mom. I'm resurrecting friendships because I FEEL LIKE IT.
I feel silly I even felt anxiety about taking an antidepressant.
Dont get me wrong, I still get anxiety, but only when it's actually healthy and necessary and actually logical.
I hope this feeling persists if I continue Celexa 20mg/day.
