I'm not exacty very happy, but i'm not really feeling depressed anymore either. I feel quite anxious, hyper, and have more energy. Could this be a sign of bipolar disorder? I see my doctor next in two weeks.
I am not bipolar, but I am on Wellbutrin for anxiety and depression and it had the same effect on me as Celexa has on you. I definitely have more energy and I am more motivated. I am not happy and I still feel sad often, but it's not all-consuming. I am not anxious anymore and although I can feel panic attacks coming on somtimes (when there is a trigger), they never fully "break out."
My doctor put me on Celexa along with the Wellbutrin to spike things up more. I took it for one week and it made me extremely anxious and anxiety-riddled. I had bad tremors was very restless and had panic attacks, it was terrible. I went off it after a week. I am saying this because meds can have quite an effect on you, so it's certainly possible that you feel this way now because of the Celexa, especially when you have not experienced symptoms of mania before taking it.
