The shocky, tingling feelings are happening because your body is adjusting to a new seratonin level. It will take several weeks for your levels to be therapeutic. I'm not on Celexa but they all work basically the same way. When I changed from Cymbalta at 120mg to Lexapro at only 40mg, I went through the same feelings. They suck, but it does get better.

anxiety sufferers often need to start at a very low dose to avoid a bad reaction, I would have dropped the dose back to 5 and taken xanax or similar also
bad reactions to antidepressants are common for anxiety sufferers, sadly most docs dont seem to know this
