Hello does anyone else get the odd discomfort/twinge/pain in their lower abdomen? Not sure if its the meds or caused by the anxiety.

Thanks

      you are going to have side effects with all or any ssri.once the cycle starts with side effects with any ssri it will continue with any ssri.so your doctor thinks that switching ssri is not going to give you side effects?remember that switching you will experience discontinuation symptoms from the celexa.we talk about this before on pm.

      Hi Lois

      This is encouraging as I have been bad since June with health anxiety,generalised anxietyand depression when it all started. I just want to feel normal again and happy I still feel quite detached some minutes, hours, days better than others but am still struggling. This is after 19 weeks 10,20 then 30mg for the last 14 weeks next week. I keep hoping I want to feel better this summer as I was lost last year and have two young children. Thank you

      Hi Louis

      At what dose did you finally recover? and how long before you reduced to 10mg. Some of the comments on here when you do finally recover are scary re coming off of them as you appear to get all these effects again!! Is it not best to stay on them at a low dose. Thank you
