celexa side effects

Just starting taking celexa 4 days ago -- 20mg was really spacing me out, so cut dosage to 10mg.Am still feeling spacy for first 3-4 hours. Emotionally,though,am feeling better already.....questions: 1)is it possible to feel better so soon,or am I just imagining things??? 2) will these side effects dissipate soon -- I don't think I like feeling this way every morning??? thanks

Re: celexa side effects

Yes, I felt better within a week, and I also had the spaciness for several days and it went away after awhile. Someone posted on the other board that it was a good sign if you felt better quckly (within a week or so) because it meant the drug was targeting the right areas. Glad you're feeling better. I found taking the medication at the evening meal was best for the spaciness til it went away.

Re: celexa side effects

I too was feeling better within a week of starting Celexa. (I'm completely off of it now.)

I didn't have any side effects other than feeling a little more tired than when I wasn't taking the medication. I guess that could be translated into feeling "spacey" too. I just kind of went with the flow because overall I felt much better.

Good luck to you. Please stick with the medication for at least two months before you decide whether or not to switch. Eventhough it feels like it's working quickly, if you give it some time, your body may adjust to the side effects.

Re: celexa side effects

thanks to all who responded ---- after day 5,I no longer had those "spacy" side effects from the feeling pretty good, and have stopped snacking all day long and drinking 3 glasses of wine a night just to help me cope...(lost 5 lbs so far!!!) here's hoping celexa does the trick!
