hi, its been a couple weeks since I've posted. I've been on 15mg for about 5 weeks now. i def have some more energy coming back to me and have managed to gain some weight back. I've been having dizzy/light headedness with some insomnia. i am thinking its from my anxiety opposed to the celexa. as the weeks go by I am looking to go bsck to gym to get my muscle back. does the celexa work better after the 1st month. i am still getting occasional fears/shakes everyday.

      thanks. i am going to the gym and lifting to get back into shape. my anxiety killed my appetite but it has started to come back a bit with the medicine. nervous to get back into running as I don't want to loose more weight.

    I started feeling much better at week 7 and 8. The dread and anxiety I had in the mornings slowly went away. I've been on tabs for almost 10 weeks and feeling much better although I still have moments but they don't last long. Much easier to handle spells of anxiety now that I know what it is. Hang in there and it will improve for you

      my anxiety is def a bit better. i jsut get nervous with food. I'm not nearly ad hungry, but make sure to have 3 meals a day with carbs and protein. its just hard cuz I seem to have a dull headache a lot and feel generally a bit weak. tends to ease after I have food or socialize. trying to go to the gym to get my muscle back but I want to gain some weight back. my doctor said I'm back to a healthy weight now though. feel like the medicine is slowly working, but want to get more of my energy back.
