I've been wanting to try this med....the last doctor I went to, before I lost my insurance, prescribed it for me and is still calling in refills. But I'm just stockpiling them in my bathroom. I haven't actually taken the meds yet. I know, that's awful....but I have this irrational fear of taking anti-depressants for some reason. I took Zoloft when I was a teenager and it was fine, but I don't know what my problem is now.
I am mildly depressed. I know it and everyone in my family has noticed it. What's worse than the depression is the anxiety. General anxiety during the day and it peaks at night. Every now and then I'll start to have a full-on real panic attack. I got them 10 years ago, and over the past year they've started coming back. They are hellish. I also have chronic insomnia pretty much every night.
I do take alprazolam for the anxiety, but I don't want to be as dependent on it as I am now, so that's why I've been considering the Celexa. Anyhow. Sorry for the novel! I'm mostly wondering if it's worked for you, how long it took to work, and what were your side effects, if any?
Thanks so much in advance.
