Does celexa cause relestlesness for anyone out there-I take it at night now so I can take my meds together but than I wake up almost every day around 5:00 in the morning and I don't go to bed until late-it takes at times two or more hours to fall asleep.

Re: celexa

Hi Cutenbrat!

I got the following information from the website. I hope you find it useful.

Celexa is well tolerated by many people. The most frequent side effects reported with Celexa are nausea, dry mouth, drowsiness, insomnia, increased sweating, tremor, diarrhea, and problems with ejaculation.

People taking Celexa generally do not suffer from insomnia, agitation, nervousness, or anxiety any more than people not taking Celexa. Furthermore, Celexa has not been associated with clinically significant weight changes.

Re: celexa

Hey Cutenbrat,
One of the more common side effects is trouble sleeping. It will make you drowsy, but can interfer with sleeping.
Here is some info. <A HREF="" TARGET=_blank></A>

Re: celexa

My DH is on Celexa....he suffered from insomnia before Celexa, and still suffers from it after starting on it. He's been on it since June. His Dr. has prescribed Klonopin along with it. This is an anti anxiety med, that allows him to get the sleep he needs. My DH says that it does relax his mind so that he can fall asleep in a timely manner. He only takes the Klonopin on nights when he feels he needs it. From what I understand, most with depression also suffer from some type of anxiety along with it. You may want to ask your Dr. about the possibility of adding an anti anxiety med to your Celexa, and possibly this could help! Good luck!

Re: celexa

The first thing that you should do is try taking it in the morning instead of at night. For most people, taking Celexa in the morning works the best. But you have to experiment. I personally take my Celexa with dinner at about 6 pm.
