Good Morning Gem,
I think 50 % is awesome..............so please keep the faith. I never noticed any miracle cure or feelings of suddenly be much better. I did notice that gradually I was able to do the things I liked to do again.
The meds can take up to 6-8 weeks for full therapeutic effect. Also you may very well need an increase in the dose.
I am here to support you along with all the other members.
I have now been on Celexa a little over 4 weeks and today is my first day without any side effects, they were not that bad to begin with just a little nausea and some added anxiety. I feel the best I have felt in a long time. I still don't think I am 100%, but darn near close! It really did take 4 full weeks to start feeling better. I almost gave up a couple of times, but I am glad I did not!
Thanks for the post and give it time to work. Eating well and taking vitamins plus walking everyday go along way to helping as well. Wait it out before you give up.
My Doc started me on a very low dose because I have had a lot of allergic reactions to meds in the past. This is probably the 12th or 13th med I have been on in two years. So I am happy to finally be able to tolerate something and actually notice that it is working!
