    Hi Jayde

     

    What you are experiencing sounds like a side effect to this medication.  Here is more information on possible side effects for Celexa:  "Nausea, dry mouth, trouble sleeping, loss of appetite, weakness, tiredness, drowsiness, dizziness, increased sweating, blurred vision, or yawning may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor promptly."

     

    Have you discussed this with your doctor yet?  If not, now is the time to do so.  Or you could also call your pharmacist to ask.  You might want to ask when is the best time to take it, with or without food, to see if any changes might help.

     

    I am so sorry you have been feeling sick for so long.  Does the Celexa help with your mood though? 

     

    Let us know what happens.  I wish you the best of luck with this.
