Second time being on Celexa

Posted , 9 users are following.

hello everyone i have recently just started my second time on celexa and i dont remember having side effects like this the first time. my doctor had taken me off and put me on prozac and i had told her i was not a fan of how prozac made me feel so she had me go back on celexa and the only side affect i have been feeling is like spaced out and having to really concentrate on things i did not really have to before. it almost feels like you go all day without your glasses and when im around people i just feel disconnected

has anyone else felt like this?

    Hi Lexi,

    This is my 3rd time at cit 10mg.

    I have found it an altogether different experience this time around. For a start, it has taken a lot longer to stabilise. Am on week 13 and really only recently have stabilised a bit more. Still get very shaky symptoms, a bit of racing heart now and again. Yesterday was knackered because of work, and the cit just made me feel out of it and disconnected. Thankfully better today.

    Week 9 was horrible, felt really depressed again.

    So yes, what you're describing sounds totally normal to me x

      Yes, I did. Still get occasional rapid heart at 13 weeks of 10mg, but it's settling down. You will stabilise. Don't forget, if you increase dose, you might get side effects again, but it will settle x

    Hi Lexi, yes I have had a different experience with celexa this time around, my doctor thinks its to do with my menopause that has made me really sensitive to meds.
