Feeling frustrated

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've been on celexa 13 days now. Started on 10 mg. The doctor cut me down to 5 mg. For a week or 2. I take my meds in the am. I've been so anxious. Sometimes it does away in the afternoon to return in the pm. I have been having trouble falling asleep. And when I do get to sleep. I wake up a few hours later. Feeling anxious. Sometimes I get back to sleep sometimes I don't. I have back issues been going to the doctor trying to figure out what's going on. So when I can't sleep I wake up all tense. And my back pain is worse Whitch causes me to be more anxious. I hope this not sleeping thing will go away. I feel like a nervous wreck. I've tried meditation it helps some. Is this not sleeping and anxious stuff normal side effect?

    Also if the side effects And not sleeping are like this on 5 mg. Upping to 10 mg will it start all over again. Hopefully not worse. I am now wishing I would have never started this med. I wasn't this bad before I started taking this.

    All side effects ask your doctor for a sleeping tablet or a benzo .these meds take a couple of months or more to work.. insomnia been one of the many side effects..and yes taking higher doses will make you feel yucky again..
