    Ten weeks is still early ...just because it work for you years ago ..doesn't mean it's going to work the same again...it could be a blip.or Prozac withdrawal and or celexa start up side effects.or both combine...higher dose doesn't mean a quicker relief..it took me eight months to feel relief...take care

    Sounds like a blip but the first thing I would do is check in with your GP. It can take up to 3 months for it to fully work however side effects should diminish after 8-10 weeks max, although I still sweat on this drug for the whole time I am on it. Defo check with the GP. Good luck and thoughts are with you
