 I've always been told to take it for atleast 2-4 weeks before expecting any results..

I would wait another week. I was on it in high school, and it took a couple weeks for me.
Or if you're really worried about it just call your DR, and see what he/she thinks.

I was on that for a couple months, it made me feel really strange, so they switched me to prozac.

 I don't know about Celexa, but I was on prozac for 8 weeks, and I didn't notice any difference. The only thing that changed was I started getting nightmares. I gave up and stopped taking it.

I started taking it 6 weeks after having my DS. Give it some time 2-4 weeks is about right. I love it!! I didn't notice a difference at first but my family sure did.

I'm on the generic brand of that.  How many mg are you on?

Celexa takes almost a month before I notice I've been feeling better.

It worked for me within a few days for ppd...but then made me feel like a zombie within a few weeks. I was on it for ppd. Keep taking it for a few more weeks and see if you notice a difference. If not, then call your dr.
