How long did it take celexa users to feel the benefit from it? i've been taking it for 9 days now, and feel nothing. I'm not getting side effects, but i'm also not feeling any better. does it just take longer, or is it the wrong med for me?

thank you

Re: celexa

Hi xx,

I spoke to my dtr after the kind help from you yesterday.
It seems her doc sounded quite informative & thorough with her. She told my dtr although it of course takes 4-6 weeks to really know if you are getting good results, that there should be some notice of a difference in a few days- started her on 20 mgm & said if you feel exactly the same in 4-5 days up to 40 because 20 mgm is usually to low to have any effect.
Just thought I would share that with you & wondering what dose you are on? If it's 20 mgm, maybe need to up to 40 mgmg ? ( ask your doc of course...)

Hope you feel better soon,

Re: celexa

hi there. i was on celexa for a while. started out on a very small dose in liguid form. so i wouldn't have the side effects i had with other meds i tried. then eventually i got to 40mg pills. but it took a long time. like couple months. so 9 days is nothing. everyone is different. i had to stop taking celexa as it was making me so irratated on the 40mg dose. now i'm on prozac. seems to be working nicely. ..
