Hi members,
     Im a 38 yr old female and started getting anxiety at work (teacher) in January. These attacks wrecked my stomach because I was getting so nervous. I was having nausea in the morning,dry heaves and eating very little. Anyway...the doc put me on protonix and Librax (anti spasmatic and anti anxiety). I felt better but exhausted and every 2 weeks....the pain in the stomach would come back. Now the update is after trying 4 different meds for my stomach that it's the anxiety thats not letting my stomach heal because Im constantly obsessing about it. I started Celexa yesterday and was/is scared to death to take it. I did take it in the morning and got more anxiety after taking it. Help~
Anyone out there taking this med? If so, when will I feel better? Last night I was wide awake until 4am and woke up at 6am....horrible.

Alot of these meds will have side effects for some. I would give it a few days and see how you do. If it still continues to give you problems I would talk with your doc and see if you can try another med. Sometimes its trial and error with these meds till you can find the right one for you. Good luck!

Nanners,
Thanks for the response. I am on day 3 of the Celexa and havent slept in 2. I sleep for about 2 hours and thats it~ At first i thought it was the medicine but talking to doctors and friends it's the anxiety. I took a quater of valium to relax and hopefully sleep a little. Didn't work. Took the edge off, but thats it. I am not a pill person so i wasnt sure how much to take. Tonight i am going to try Ambien (5mg)
