    I started 10mg a month and a half ago and just got it increased to 20mg which is usually the maintence dose. I kept a journal everyday of how i felt throughout the day. I would say around day 15 i started to feel better eachday but still woje up anxious because i would open my eyes and say well do i feel normal bot feeeling as normal as i should so i would start to worry again and the process just jept going lime that. I was just increased 2 days ago to 20mg and praying it works. I have noticed after i take the celexa at night infeel completely normal and have been thinking about switching it to morning because i feel best while on it but not feeling the full effect because im sleeping lol . when do you take yoir medicine morning or night ?

      I am on 20 mg now as of 2 days ago taking it at night but upon waking instill feel so tired and unmotivated. It seems like it takes me forever tonget energy through the day im just praying its a side effect and will subside but it will be 2 months on the 17th since i started the medication. It seems since my dose was increased that my xanax dont take the anxiety away like it did when i was on 10mg. I may try switching to morning to see if it helps with energy as i read from other users it help with the tiredness during the day.
