I need advice on celexa/klonopin

I started Celexa 6 days ago. just 5 mg. I tried different times of the day to take the med and I am completely exhausted. The past 4 days I have been taking it in the morning. At night time I take 1/4 of a .05mg klonopin (which is not much)I have been taking that for months now. Last night I couldn't get to sleep so I took a 1/2. Today I had an anxiety attack which I havn't had one in 7 months. I had to take a tiny bit of klonopin. Called my doctor and he wants me to try to go to 10 mg over the weekend starting tonight. And take it at supper time and klonopin at night before bed. I feel that I should come off this drug and he said he take at least 2 weeks for it to kick in. The reason I am trying this med is because Lexapro was too strong for me and I feel that I can't get rid of this constant fog i'm in. Has anyone felt worse starting a new med? did you have to increase klonopin or xanax? I feel terrible and dissapointed in myself that this has gotten out of control. i really need some positive feedback! please help!

Re: I need advice on celexa/klonopin

Hello again! For the first week or so, the Celexa made me feel worse before I felt better. My anxiety increased and I had some trouble sleeping. It went away completely by 2 weeks. I suggest just sticking it out and see how you feel after 2-3 weeks. I'm sure things will start to look up soon!

Thanks again for responding. I took the other 5mg tonight. So I have started on the 10. I am going to stick it out for 2 or 3 weeks. I am so tired and on top I am taking klonopin. I hope this works! Did your anxiety lesson after a couple weeks on?

Yup after a couple of weeks I left a definite decrease in my anxiety. After I went up to 20mg, I almost feel normal again. I don't think I've found the perfect dose yet, but I feel much better than I did before. Hang it there, it'll get better!
