The first few days were terrible. I couldn't sleep,and spent the second night feeling like I was suffering from the worst hangover of my life! By about the 3rd or 4th day however I have felt like my old self. This is worth persevering with.

I have been on this medication for 4 months and it has been perfect. I just needed something to take the edge off of life and this worked. The only side effect is dry mouth about an hour after I take the medicine and it makes me sleepy, so I take it before bed and I wake up refreshed.

With in a few weeks of being put on Celexa my fiance and I both noticed a complete change in my attitude. I was diagnosed with depression in May of 2007 and this medication has helped wonders. I love it. I do hope that someday soon I can slowly take myself off of it.
