I've been on different levels of Celexa for the last 6years now. Just recently we (doc and I) up'd my dosage to 40mg. After being on 20mg for some time, I felt a sense that weight was lifted off of me after about 2 weeks of the new dosage of 40mgs. Now I think body mass does have something to do with it. I am a petite 5'3" 120lbs.
It will not be a drastic change. You will find that things won't upset you as readily. It is like an unconcious sense. One day you will wake up and ALL WILL BE RIGHT WITH THE WORLD.
I have a heritary disposition first off. Then I also have anxiety with PMS. Since I have been on the 40's I have been told at work that I am NICER to get along with. My job means alot to me since I am the main source of income. ( On the UC forum, my husband is VietVet. ) So I MUST medicate to be able to work with all of the IDIOTS in my office. AAAAARGH!
But, I digress. I would suggest that after 2 weeks you don't feel anybetter to talk to you healthcare person and they may change your dosage.
I am not on this board very often, just when I need to vent. Usually I am good, but the holidays really suck for me. If you view my other posts, you'll probably see a trend.
Don't beafraid to ask for help.
