I just started taking Celexa for GAD. I am only on day 2. I'm taking 10mg a day for a week then upping it to 20 mg. I have not noticed any ill effects either, which is great! If anything I just feel a tiny bit sedated and I have no appetite.
Keep posting your progress here, as will I. I am interested in knowing how you are coming along.
Oh my gosh! That's a weird side effect. I'm having a bit of antsy feeling today...jittery almost. I don't know whether to attribute it to the medication or not. I took .25mg of klonopin to try to calm me down. I think it's working. I am sorry to hear about your weight gain. I used to complain about gaining weight while on Effexor. I was on it two years and put on 10 pounds. I thought that was bad. I don't know whether it was the med or the fact that I felt great so I ate a lot more...my IBS was better, too, so I could eat fattier foods.
How long before you starting experiencing cravings and weight gain??
