Hi! Im a newbie and wanted to ask a few questions. About 3 years ago I was having some problems with Anxiety and depression. I was put on 20 mg. of Celexa and it helped tremendously. I think I was on it for about a year (maybe a little longer) and went off it (with the help of Dr's) with out any problems.

I had a tough October and my grandfather was in the hospital for a few weeks. He's now better but not a day goes by that I think about those horrible 2 weeks. I then found out in the beginning of Novermber that I was pregnant wtih a blighted ovum. I had to have a D&C the day before Thanksgiving and the first of December the Anxiety had returned. My dr. has put me back on 20 mg. of Celexa and I also just started to go back on the birth control pill.

The anxiety has calmed down and the only side effects I've experienced are insomnia (I was taking it before bed, I have started taking it in the morning now, today was my first day- hope that helps!) and lack of appetite. I was only eating one meal a day and have lost a few pounds. Has anyone else experienced this and did it go away? I have only been on Celexa for 1 week.

Does anxiety ever go away? My dr. thinks thats because of what I have been through, someone with a history of anxiety is more likely to have it return when my hormones went out of wack.

Thanks for any replies in advance! Stay safe!

Dear lovemymedic20,
As far as does anxiety ever go away, that is an individuals question that can not be answered by anyone. As far as Celexa, I take it, I sleep little and have a lot of insomnia, like right now, it is 2:20 am. I used to visit an old message board specific to Celexa and everyone joked about being Vampires on the drug. Sleep during the day when you can and stay up all night. I think it varies with what is going on in your life at the time. I go though ups and downs of being able to sleep well and then for some reason not. Good luck with this and try to relax a little and not worry so much about it.

Sincerely,

Sickman :)
