people on celexa, how many mg until it started working for you?
« on: February 17, 2014, 07:49:08 AM »
i started taking celexa in november. started at 5mg then after a month went 10mg now i just started 10.5mg. im going in low dosages at my own request because ive had bad experiences with other ssri's (zoloft and paxil). 10mg was ok for side effects but i didnt feel any different. after a week on 10.5 im feeling pretty crappy (better than with the other ssri's which i stopped taking after a few days). i know im on a pretty low dosage but i wonder if its even worth continuing.

im also on .5mg of xanax 3 times a day (for 1 year now, before that it was .5mg a day for 5yrs). i suffer from anxiety, panic attacks and agoraphobia.

i just wonder if even at this low of a dosage if it is a sign that it isnt really going to do anything for me...should i have felt even a little better by now?

You should feel some difference with four to six weeks. If you don't feel any changes at all the dose may be upped. Just to see if it works. But 4 to 6 weeks is the normal time it takes for these forms of medication to really begin doing their stuff.
