I've been on Zoloft for almost two months (started off @ 50mg, then went to 100mg) for bad anxiety mixed in with a little depression and Xanax as needed.

The Zoloft has helped my anxiety a lot but I have had bad side effects from it - almost constant weird/cloudy feeling in my head and headaches that are almost constant and so painful like no other headache I've ever had.

I talked to my doctor yesterday and he said that while the Zoloft was helping the anxiety part that I definitely did not need to deal with these side effects, especially since I've been on the medicine almost two months (he said the headaches is a side effect from Zoloft but not a common one....strange!).

Anyhow, he is starting me on 20mg of Celexa and said that we can possibly increase to 40mg if it is not helping enough and to let him know if I should get worse with the anxiety or start having depression in the next week.

I'm just wondering what side effects people have had to Celexa and any other advice/suggestions. I was taking the Zoloft at night because it was making me so sleepy if I took it in the morning. I took my first pill last night and was almost immediately very nauseous. During the night when I would wake up I would feel very jittery and anxious - is this just since I don't have the Zoloft in me and am starting a new RX? A little while ago the nausea came back - is this a side effect of Celexa? If so, I'm praying the side effects go away soon! I've been anxious off an on throughout the day today too.

That's great that the Zoloft works for you and you don't have any continuing side effects from it. Zoloft was definitely helping with my anxiety but the constant migraine headaches which I had never had until starting the medicine and the constant "strange/cloudy" feeling in my head were just too much for me. I had been on it almost two full months and was still having that stuff so that is why we agreed that I should change. I haven't had Zoloft since Thurs nt and the strange feeling in my head has been gone since Saturday morning and I haven't had any migraines.

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed for Celexa to work great for me and for the beginning side effects to go away!

Thanks for the reply!
