      Sorry I disagree. This drug helps many people on this forum just because it doesn't work for you doesn't mean it's a terrible drug. This forum is about making positive contributions to try and help people not make them feel worse!

      you probably dont have fibro at all this medicine very famous for doctors misdiagnosing folks with other illnesses because of the side effects of celexa .paula on this forum who was on celexa got mis diagnose quite a few times and so did i because of the way this med mimics other illnesses due to long lasting side effects that doctors cant comprehend.so they go on and give a diagnose to get rid of you or make you feel mentally comfortable.so if i was you i wait until i was completely off celexa and check the fibro again.good luck toria

      the same fda that approved blood pressure medication are now warning patients that there is cancer causing chemicals in the ingredients.so i dont trust no one not even natural meds .natural meds come with there own drama as well.

    Hi Michele.the tiredness and fatigue is side effects from going from 5 mgs too 10 mgs.You will always get some side effects when you go up or down the levels ,but this will always start to get less and less side effects as the medication builds up within your body.

    Hi! Yes the fatigue stayed with me for many weeks with a dose increase. It does ease up and go away. It's difficult I know but it's been quite early yet.
