  • I am not sure on your med, but in general antidepressant meds can take a few weeks before you start feeling like your old self again.This is normal for this class of drug, so dont expect to feel better after one dose, it takes time for them to work. As long as you dont have any bad side effects from them, keep taken it, if no results after 3 weeks call your Dr. or ask him the timeline for this med or when you can expect to feel better.
    I wish you the best.

  • I know that Celexa is similar to Lexapro, which I've used. With Lexapro, I started feeling somewhat better within a few days, but it took a few weeks to have full effect.
