Hi, I am new to the depression forum. I have visited on the bipolar forum but it turns out that I am not bipolar, I have major depression and high anxiety. I was just started on Celexa two days ago, and though it is too early to tell if it is going to work, I am already sleeping better. I guess depression feels different for everyone. Mine is total body aching, not wanting to eat and can't sleep, remember or consentrate. When I was being treated for bipolar with some "big gun" meds that never worked, I felt like there was just no hope in me ever feeling better again. I had a horrible reaction to a drug called Risperdal that almost put me in the hospital. I have not felt well since. But with a new Doc, that really seems to "get me" and new medication, I am hoping for the best. I will let you know how the Celexa does. I hope it works well for you too. I have heard it is the little sister to Lexapro with far less side effects.
Let's hope for the BEST!
Formerly BP Gemini, I guess you can just call me Gem!
