I have been on Celexa for 4 weeks today (I go back to the Dr. June 15th), for depression and high anxiety. I am making progress but at a snails pace. I feel maybe 50% better than when I went to the Dr. and I felt terrible that day, my whole body ached, etc.........
I have felt so crappy for so long, I just want to be better. Should I be feeling really really better by now? Most side effects I had were minimal and then went away which is great because I am the side effect queen, been on ten or more meds over the last 2 years.
I need some encouragement to not give up and wait this out. I was so tempted one day last week to just give up on the meds, but I did not and the next day I had a pretty good day. Is this how it goes until the med is in my system? I am only on 10mg, if I do not feel any better than now, when I go to the Dr. I will talk to her about increasing the dose.
OK, I am hanging in there. Please cheer me on, I need it
