    :hug: sorry to hear that hun.. it sounds really scary and confusing. is there any way you could tell your doctor how you're feeling? i'm glad that sometimes you're feeling better and able to smile.. but i just wish those times were longer and weren't accompanied by the bad times. i wonder if it's a side effect of the tablets? or is anything else going on in your life right now that could be making you feel this way?

    either way, sorry i'm not much help.. but i do love you and i'm here if you need to talk about anything at all ok?

    I took Celexa for about 6 months four years ago. The middle dose worked well, I think, but things got bad once I was taking the maximum dose. I wasn't acting right and I felt upset and paranoid. I told the doctor that I didn't want to take it anymore. I told him what was going on with me and he insisted that I keep taking it. So I threw the meds away and never went back to see him. I was pissed because I didn't think he was listening to me.

    Now that I know better, if something isn't working for you, see if you can take a lower dose until you're weaned off. Maybe you could try something else?

    I am on celexa and think it isn't working. I feel moody more often. It seems to work some times and not others. Or is it just in my head. i dunno.

    I have been on it and it didn't help me, but I know it has helped some people, considering everyones body/chemistry is different it's hard telling which one will help, so you just have to kinda grit your teeth and go through meds until you find one that helps.
