paxil. celexa. dissociation.

i just switched over from 25 mg of paxil cr to 20 mg of celexa (the generic brand). will i notice any changes? my psychiatrist said i shouldn't. i've been kind of nauseous lately and i wondered if it was due to that.

also, has anyone found any medication that helps with dissociation? its driving me nutso.

Re: paxil. celexa. dissociation.

There was no respons to this post. Was wondering if anyone has received help with medication on dissociation or derealazation. Or if they found a wasy to not feel this way. I know that it is not harmful but it drives me crazy - there's got to be a way rid this fog!

Re: paxil. celexa. dissociation.

the fog you speak of is a horible feeling. I have PTSD so i have disassociated a few times. the only thing that really helped me was counseling. i am now taking remeron for depression and anxiety and i am having a good response since it has stabilized my modds. it will not be a permanent thing since i am just having a horrible time right now with multiple problems that has brought it on. the PTSD i took klonopin off and on while going through therapy for around 18 months. I have had a horrible reaction to al of the SSRI's so i can't help you there. i found counseling to be very educating and that's why it helped me so much to look at things in a different light. wish you the best.

Re: paxil. celexa. dissociation.

Hey I was wondering if you have noticed any side effects. Ironically I think we BOTH switched from Paxil 20 to Celexa 20 at the same time. Have you noticed any weight gain at all?

Re: paxil. celexa. dissociation.

me too and i'm not sure why. because i kind of switched over medications when i got back to college this fall. so i don't know if i'm eating more because i'm stressed (because thats what i do when i'm stressed! ) or if its the medication. i feel like the medication itself can't make you gain weight but maybe it can effect your neurotransmitters and make you hungrier? i dno!

Re: paxil. celexa. dissociation.

I thought maybe it affected your metabolism??? I switched but I keep my eating the same, like super low fat, very low cal, low carb...in effort to lose weight. Which is impossible bc of my thyroid which is a totally separate issue
