For Anxiety and Stress "I was on Celexa for 6 years. I recently weaned off the Celexa due to the unpleasant weight gain that I experienced. I wanted to try a different anti-anxiety medication that was less likely to gain weight, seretonin syndrome and elavil.
I tried a combination of Lexapro and Wellbutrin for awhile and then Zoloft. None of those drugs were able to help ease my mind. I experienced increased anxiety and depression, specially panic attacks. I am hoping to get back on Celexa next week as it was my saving grace for 6 years!
My only complaints about Celexa are the weight gain and the headaches that occur if you accidentally miss a dose as well as the weaning off headaches. Crossing my fingers it works a second time!

I originally started four days ago at night thinking I would be drowsy but instead it kinda kept me up. So I switched to mornings. So yesterday was day 1, in the am. And my day I did feel like I was sad and lonely, chemically buzzed but I could still do things. I had anxiety about being alone with my two boys. But as the day progressed and I reached 5pm, I decided that maybe I should work out. Maybe it would help the side effects. It was the best workout ever!! I woke up non drowsy and took my second pill.

I like most people think I am feeling better and have tried to wean myself off Celexa 3 times in the past 6 years but I never make it past 2 weeks before I start having meltdowns. I realized each time I tried to quit taking it afterwards I could not handle all the kids being kids.
So I have decided I will have to be on Celexa for the rest of my life.
