Quote from rubberduqqie:Ya, on celexa I get really tired.
What other ones are more stimulating?
is the most activating or stimulating of the SSRI's. Zoloft is next on the list with Paxil right behind it. Celexa is supposed to be more activating than Paxil but in my experience I found the complete opposite. Effexor is FDA approved for an anxiety disorder also so you can try that. Talk with your doctor. I found Lexapro to be much less effective than any of the antidepressants i mentioned above. If you have Panic Disorder be extra careful with Wellbutrin and even Prozac
. These two meds are extremely stimulating and may cause more frequent and more intense panic attacks. I was never actually on Celexa but i was on Lexapro which is practically the same thing (Lexapro is an isomer of Celexa which is like half of what Celexa is made of which is supposed to help with the side effects).
My own personal experience, Paxil worked best for me at one time and i would like to go back on that med. It was most effective for my panic attacks.
