    I'm in my 2nd month on celexa now, it did improve my moods (anxiety), i tolerate it well. I'm on 20 mg, but lately i notice that it's like it's not working well anymore, could it be that it's time to bump it up.
    BTW whats is the maximum dose of that?

    Also has anyone HAD side effects to celexa, i haven't gained weight, but i'm not looseing any either, which i am trying.

    thanks!

    ps, it couldn't be that i recently bought magnesium i take 2 at bed now? or glucosamine? probally not

    was about the same as you discribe. It didn't seem to last very long.(20mg also) I decided to stop taking it.

    I have found that even though I don't sleep as well, I have less fibro agony when I am not taking celexa.

    Maybe you can take something else or ask your Dr. if its time to increase the dose. Hopefully you will feel better soon.
    I have tried paxil and trazadone.(they both helped)
    I refuse to take sinaquin, it made me very sick & wide awake.
    I have also found, in my case I gain weight when I don't use an anti-depressant. ( that's so strange from what I have heard)
    feel good.
