Hey guys, I need some opinions please.
I was put on Paroxentine in August of 2010 for my anxiety, stress, irritability. I started on 20 mg then went up to 40 mg. I recently noticed that I had gained a lot of weight (14 lbs in 3 months) and had started to feel the way I did before taking the medication.
I recently found an awesome nurse practitioner this past week and she took me off of it. I had weened myself down to 20 mg again for the past 2 weeks. She completely took me off of it and put me on Celexa 20mg. I have been taking only this for the past 4 days, and I am feeling horrible. I have headaches, sick to my stomach, dizziness and I am so tired all the time. I am back to being pretty bitchy and impatient again. The nurse practitioner told me this was normal since I was changing antidepressants. She told me I should feel better in about a week to a week and a half, and that I would start to feel the affects of the meds.
So I was wondering what was everyone else's opinions on this medication and if anyone has had the same experiences. I am very glad to be off Paroxetine...that was a horrid pill. I really hope this Celexa helps me, but the NP said we can change in a month if I don't feel any changes.
Please give me opinions/advice, and NO rude comments.
Thanks a bunch!!
