The only problem I was having with Zoloft(besides the point that it wasn't working) is insomnia, ance, no appetite, loosing weight, and more anxiety. and then when I upped my dose I was feeling extra tired and trembling .Yesterday I lowered the dosage to come off of it and today I have major stomach pain. Is not normal? I'm suppose to switch to something else next week.

  • When I got off Zoloft I had nausea and I was so agitated. Now I think I am getting side effects to both Busphar and celexa. I get dizzy from Busphar and today I seem to be having more panic attacks ( my second day of celexa). Just can't win. I just want to skip to three weeks from now hoping that celexa will help me. We are messing with chemicals in our brain so u never know how your body is going to react.

  • This really sucks. I am full of anxiety right now and one step away from panic and I don't need any panic with this stupid derealization. I was going to ask for Celexa too. Now I don't know. I hope you feel better soon.

  • Both my mother and my husband love celexa with no side effects. I also take Busphar so that could be adding to it. My celexa dose is so low that now I am wondering if all this is in my head like everything else. It's also only day 2 so I know for a lot of people it takes a while to adjust to the med. I am so mad at myself for what I did to my body. I was doing ok in January, just having more panic attacks at work and high blood pressure ( prob anxiety). I should have gone to psych but went to PCP who gave me busphar and told me to go off Zoloft. I went on blood pressure meds and went off birth control pills. Busphar helped with heart palpitations but continued anxiety so I upped the dose myself ( bad idea) but had to to get through work. Ended up going on cholesterol med in the meantime and now celexa. I truly think my body and mind are in shock right now. I did request a med review with my PCP. Inwould still ask for celexa since you can not go by me yet since it's only been 2 days. I really hope we both feel better soon because I am getting to my breaking point, I really can't work right now and I don't know how my family is going to make it if I can't work. We just have to keep fighting to get better, no other way.

  • I know but it's so hard. This is my first time taking medication and I really thought Zoloft was going to fix me. My major problem is this derealization. If I didn't have that I would be normal. It's so hard to believe that I was happy 6 weeks ago. I honestly don't know where this came from.

  • I have heard someone mention this in a previous post the doc does a swab inside your mouth and can tell you what the best medication is the best for you. Don't know how true it is but it's worth asking.

  • It was me. They psichriatrist did that swap test on me.
