I just thought I would write an update of how it's been going for me on Celexa. Today was my follow-up with my doctor. My weight was down about 3 pounds (of which I didn't want to lose) but that seems to happen to me on Celexa, from past experience. My blood pressure was a little higher than normal, but still normal 120/80----I was a little stressed out and upset yesterday (family issue) so I attributed it to that.
As far as my progress on Celexa, I really noticed it improving at 8 weeks in. Now, I don't take the typical dose, I take a very small dose----which I had questions about for my doc. because of the therapeutic dose being 20mg., and that I take a dose less than that. My doctor said because she prescribed it to me for anxiety and it is working she is perfectly happy with the amount I'm taking. She has other patients who also take smaller doses than the 20mg. It just seems to take the edge off of my anxiety which helps immensely.
Also had my vitamin D checked again to see if it went up since taking the supplement.
