I'm worried this different drug may make me feel worse ??? (If this is possible) 😞

Has anyone any positive experiences with this ?

    I switched from fluoxitine to citlaopram after being unable to tolerate the side effects, the change was easy enough and it did help, for a while anyway

      Thanks for the reply . I was on fluoxtine for 2 years but stopped working for me so Dr changed me to this as my mood is so low .

    I just got off the Celexa after year's being on it. At the end,60mg. I was having Interactions with Tegretol xr, a seizure med with it. So far, much better. 20 mg fluoxetine currently with the Tegretol xr and clonazapam 1mg for sleep. I a weird case having a Traumatic Brain injury on top of everything so not a great advocate or comparison. Celexa was hell with the Tegretol xr. I think fine otherwise.

      Hi OreElect

      Sounds like you have had a lot to deal with . Glad to hear you medication is sorted now.

      Definitely a difficult thing to deal with, anxiety-panic as you already know. The waiting to see if it work's and just trying to enjoy life and find joy. I will add for anyone else to, my pharmacist was a huge help vs my psychiatrist and neurologist with knowledge on meds and also Interactions which in my case was an issue. From now on, I will include some pharmacist time for information and study up on Interactions with anything else I take. Prayers for you and this journey to find a joyful good normal without trouble's.
