Hey there, What is your dose, 10 mg? If you continue to feel this way you may want to check with your physician. The tabs are not scored are they?
Hopefully someone on Celexa will be here shortly to help you out with your question. I agree that Lexapro and Celexa are very similiar.
Take care. :)
I have taken Celexa in the past. Was started at 10mg fro a few days, then 20mg for a few more days, and then 40mg for my normal dose. I tolerated it quite well and only noticed a slight "calming" effect. I do know you can take it either am or pm. If it really zonks you out, maybe try it an hour before you go to bed. It may help with sleep and then be less noticable during your active part of the day.
The side effects I remember were dry mouth at night and some tingling sensations in feet... Side effects went away after 3-4 weeks.
Hope this helps.
First, thanks for starting this thread! I recently switched from Wellbutrin to Celexa, since I have both depression and anxiety. (I'm usually over on the Depression Board.) I started taking 5 mg/day and then 10 mg/day. But, as soon as I started taken the 10 mg/day I had a hard time concentrating at work and had no energy. Compared to when I was on the Wellbutrin, I was a zombie. Since then, I've reduced it back down to the 5 mg and I'm doing really well. I'm also using a light box every morning when I first wake up which works wonders!
