yeah Hello everyone! I have a stupid question but first i want to take the time to share with you guys how things have been going in my life.As some of you know i started a new job a few days ago and i think i like it.The people i work with are nice and the place stays busy so it makes it appear as if time goes by fast.I'm still trying to get use to it but so far so good!I also started on celexa almost a week ago and it seems to be very effective.Not many side effects just noticed i feel a little funny is all.Not bad but weird? Does anyone know where i'm coming from with that? My appetite has decreased some, which is a good thing because i need to lose weight!(lol) Also i noticed i havent been really feeling anxious like i usually do on my past jobs,maybe thats the meds working!Anyway enough about me back to the question.I was talking to someone else about this on a previous thread,but does anyone noticed that their anti-anxiety meds make them talk alot.I mean even the benzos! I've noticed especially since taking xanax,I CAN NOT SHUT UP!!! Am i alone on this guys?Please offer me some feedback! I mean it's not causing any problems as far as i know but alot of my friends and relatives notice it and of course my husband.I dont think it bothers them,at least they haven't told me it does.But they have mentioned it!Please Let Me Know Am I The Only One With The Mouth Problem!!!!!(lol)

Hi Panike

I am glad you got a job and is liking it. Way to goooo.!! I take 60 mgs celexa and 3mgs xanax per day and I have not had an increase in talking. Maybe you are just happy and so talk more than when you are really down. By nature I don't talk much and that has not changed with the meds.

Good luck with your job.

i think its your able to be out and talk to more people, i know i am stuck at home in the middle of no where, and when people come over i am like a anxious child wanting to be talked to , i spend most of my day talking to cats and my kids, no mind stimulation from talking to adults, so thats why i think your just happy to able to be around other people,

Hey there,
So glad everything is going smoothly.  I did not notice the talking either but I agree it could very well be the change in your routine and  be situational in nature.  You are out there with people and the opportunity is there for you to visit so just enjoy yourself.

It is a good side effect IMHO. devil

Hello,

I also answered on the other thread but will answere here as well :) I was talking away the first week on Lex, like I had just drank a pot of coffee! It was funny b/c I was ware of it. I was thinking...as I was jabbering "Boy this Lexapro is making you talk a mile a min!" SSRI's can inheirantly be very stimulating. Hope I did not say anything stupid in my week of jibbering ;) But short answer yes, I was at first very talkative. Not on Benzos though, they make me not talk much...just sleepy

Thank you guys for the feedback! Maybe i just have a big mouth and need to get over it!(lol) I mean i've always been somewhat outgoing and talkative but just noticed a slight increase with the meds! Maybe it's what you guys said,maybe i'm just excited to be back socializing.Because i do consider myself to be a people person.Oh,yeah could someone give me some feedback on the funny feeling i have been having since starting the new med. Has anyone else ever felt like this? If so what is it or what does it mean?

Hello, Panike,
 
I was just wondering about your talkativeness.  The desired result of your treatment is an increased sense of well-being.  Like the other person said, you might just be feeling that good!!  :-)    I remember after I was given Adderral for severe fatigue, (almost narcoleptic) I was elated almost.  I had so much energy and I could focus.  No more brain fog!  I actually aprticipated in the conversations with our friends when we got together in the evenings for drinks.  Normally by that time, I was almost catatonic (in a stupor) I was soooo tired.  They must have thought I started doing drugs!  (actually, I did).  tongue   There is also some anorexia (lack of appetite) with that med.  But, how can that be bad??

Hi Lady you may be right? What you described that is how i am, i almost always take over the whole conversation when there are a group of people involved.I hope i dont appear to be rude but it's like i cant help it.LIke BadG said i am aware that i'm babbling but just cant stop.about the anorexia with taking the celexa,i do eat but really just dont desire to eat. But i eat because i know i need to. Have you been on celexa before or did you just read that somewhere? What meds are you on now if you dont mind me asking? Oh,and nice to meet you! Told you i babble i didnt even get aquainted with you before i start babbling.(Lol)

Funny you say that you think you are babbling.....I have noticed your recent posts don't even have spacing after puctuation, like you can't get the words through your fingers fast enough! You are too funny Panike! Glad to see you are so much happier tho.

I think it is a good thing that you are feeling up and have energy. I would only be concerned if you find yourself going into a mania-type state, like running around cleaning or starting an activity and not finishing it because you've moved on to something else, starting a bunch of projects but not finishing any....then maybe your dose is too high....but having more energy than before and wanting to talk, nah...you have always answered a lot of posts and always had some good info to share! I didn't mean to point out your typing skills in a bad way, I actually found myself laughing because you confirmed what I had been thinking, "wow, she's happier and more talkative" then the next post I read you said you had been babbling.....I guess I was just picturing a woman whose boyfriend/husband is trying to sneak out without being seen because they don't like to talk.... anyway, it was meant in love, hun, you just crack me up is all!
