Sunny:

How long ago did he start you on Celexa? Most AD's cause some type of side-effect when you first start them, like nausea or lethargy (being tired), but this usually lessens and/or disappears. If he is already cutting your dose, then it sounds like you have been on it at least 1-3 months. Let me know, okay.

Hi there. No, I just started the AD like 5 days ago. i stopped taking it because I am already so tired, and i have a VERY demanding job, and can't afford to be lethargic. AT ALL! plus, there is a side effect of gaining weight. i weigh 245lbs, and can't afford that. guess ill just remain sad til whenever. Have you ever heard about this Celexa before? good or bad things?
Thank you!

The only thing I can say is, it usually takes 1-2 weeks for the lethargy to subside. If you want to try again, I would support you to try to stay on it at least 9-10 days. I don't want to sound like I am pushing you or anything, I just want you to get better and feel happy!

I have a family member who takes it and it has done wonders. She attempted suicide 2 times in the past and had no quality of life. She is now married and has a beautiful baby boy. She went back to college, got her Bachelor's, teaches 1st grade and is starting on her Master's. I hope this info helps you, a little, as Celexa helped her get here (especially after my uncle, her father, died 9 years ago, right before she graduated high school).

Smiles from me..................

Angry Side effects, AD Celexa & just talking

hi. its just me. the pouty, negitive one on the site. im surprised anyone even listenes to me anymore. i guess im just pouty, and negitive. that just seems to be who i am now.

side effect i am having is retaining water. my ankles look like a prego woman, and im guessing the rest of my body is carying extra water too. i feel like a cow. has anyone else expierenced this? it happened before, and my dr gave me some meds (MORE FREAKIN MEDS!!!) to make me pee a lot, and get rid of it. it sucks.

i tried celexa 25mg for 4 days, then found out that weight gain is a side effect, along with fatigue. i can't be so f'in tired all the Gawd damn time! thats why ive always used drugs to begin with! Im fat, tired, and you make me more tired, im gonna get high! Damn! I don't know if my dose of suboxone is too high, and that is why im so tired, but i can barely keep my eyes open.

im so tired of being so fed up all the time. i need to get all of this disgusting fat off my body, and i would feel better, but my ankle is all fuc#%^ up so that makes things difficult. i just wish things were different for me.

any input about celexa or the water retension would be great. thanks

sunny

btw, i know i sound like a fool the way i ramble on about the negative stuff, and i sound immature, and a selfish horrible person. Im just venting.
i feel like crap today, and i can't STAY AWAKE!!! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME!! DAMN IT! IM ONLY 30 YEARS OLD, AND I SHOULDN'T BE THIS TIRED ALL THE TIME. i could just cry...i don't know how much longer i can do this

Hi Sunny Rae, sometimes people get swelling as a reaction to the naloxone in Suboxone. What you can try doing to see if might be the naloxone is to spit out the saliva after the pill is dissolved instead of swallowing it.

As for you dose, if you think it may be causing fatigue, ask your doctor about reducing down 2 or 4 mg and see if that helps. Most reductions aren't noticed for a couple/three days because of the long halflife, so it might not be an immediate thing.

sunny, i think you are depressed, that makes you really tired. i dont know anything about that medicine, but drink alot of water, to get rid of it, start some kind of exercising, try to do some when you wake up, and when you go home go for a walk i really do think you are depressed. snap out of it. you remember that movie moonstruck. well she said that all the time. you have to get in some kind of diffrent routine thats gona make you happier, get out of this slump. how much sub are you on? i think you said 16mg, im not sure, im on that and im ok. take some b12, it will give you some energy and some ginseng. stop thinking you are a piece of crap, you are not, you should be proud of yourself. are you having cravings? you are just not happy, you need to do things that are gona make you happy. start by trying to lose some weight, that seems to make you very unhappy. just try to remember how unhappy you were before always high all the time, yeah we thought we were happy but we really werent. just hang in there, we are the only one that can change our disposition in life, we can make our own happiness or break it, you can do it. your friend dawnny

Sunny:

I'm not sure if you saw the other post I left you about the Celexa. I know you were only taking it 5 days and quit because of the lethargy, but if you could try it for 8-10 days I think you would see a big difference. Celexa will cause these side effects for 1-2 weeks until your body adjusts.

After 8-10 days, you should notice the lethargy and water retention reducing and gradually disappearing. After 12-14 days, your depression symptoms start to also lessen.

This is why you have to give the medication time to adjust in your system. 5 days will not have any beneficial effects at all.

I hope this helps.

Dear Sunny Rae,

I completely understand about the fatigue. I also get the worst sweats. I talked to my doctor and he said this was normal side effects.He told me that he could put me on a medicine that reduces my sweats, but that medicine has a huge side effect of heat stroke(I decided to NOT take more medicine.) I switched my dose time from in the morning around 8am to around 5 pm (I take the first one) and then around 2 am I take the other. I usually wake up to pee or with my children at that time of night. It has made me feel so much better. I am not craving during the day and I also have energy. I would never recommend doing this unless you have spoken with your doctor. Some doctors are different. I also have a girlfriend that is on Suboxone and she just switched her dosage time and she also feels a lot better. I hope everything works out for you. Remember that you don't have to have that desperate feeling today. You don't have to use today. Easy does it.

Hi Sunny

I've never taken celexa, but have been on many anti-depressants, all of which started out with negative side effects which always subsided and I felt better always in the long run. You do though have to give them a chance to build up in your system.

Hang in there, it will be worth it

Steve

P.S. It is extremely important not to stop them on your own. Some of them can cause withdrawal

Sunny Im sorry you are feeling so terrible. I just went through a rough patch myself and realized I have to be proactive and do something about my situation. Staying busy with doing things you like to do helps sooo much! Have you talked to your doctor about how you feel? Or your conunselor? They can help you figure out why you are feeling so down and help you. Maybe you are on too high of a dose(like someone else said)? I know thats how I knew when to lower my dose. A few days after I did, my energy came right back. I also get a b-12 shot every month when I see the doctor. It helps alot for energy and increasing your metabolism. And its safe.
As far as the weight problem goes, a friend of mine is going to weight watchers and she really likes it. Maybe you could give that a try? You would meet new people and maybe develop new friendships along the way. I understand how you feel down about being overweight, I was for a time in high school and I was so self concious(sp) and miserable. I eventually lost the weight and have kept it off. So....you can too!!!
I hope some of this helps. It WILL get better, if you MAKE it betterDeanna

Hi Sunny. Sorry to hear you have found your groove yet, but I'm sure you will. You seem very determined. I have taken Celexa. I dont remember exactly what the problem was but I now have it listed under allergies for lack of a better place along with Lexapro. The 2 that work for me are Wellbutrin which actually has a weight loss side effect and Zoloft (not at the same time of course). On Wellbutrin now and seem to be doing all right. Zoloft was 5 years ago. Hope that helps. Hang in there and take care - Steve

Hey all. i hope everyone is doing well. I turned 30 on the 3rd, and remained sober! I am going to remain sober in this decade. my 20's were hell, and i am sure that my 30's will be better. i am still feeling depressed, and sleep a lot. I stopped taking celexa, but started again 2 days ago. i think im gonna ask my dr about wellbutrin. my cousin is on that one and she likes it. Dawnny-- i am so sorry to hear about the loss of your family member. there is nothing worse than dealing with a death in the family. it puts things in perspective in regards to my poutty attitude about things. my prayers are with you and your family.

i really hope that i find something for my sadness. im also on prazosin for my nightmares, not sure if i told you all that yet. i am still running through crazy horror situations while i sleep. i had a dream last night my face was burnt off, and i couldn't find anyone to help me. i wish my head would just stop. it makes for a horrible night every night.

Steve, i appreciate and understand your comment about my thoughts on how my day will go if i think it that way. you are right, and i really need to try harder to adjust my thought process.

I AM GOING CAMPING THE WEEK OF JULY 13 through the next sat. i won't have a computer with me in the woods...

my dr is also gonna cut my dose back next visit. im ready i think. we will see?!

have a good night all )

Hiya!! I know you're out camping right now, but I wanted to post this to ya quick!!

I've taken Celexa in the past. I didn't really experience much weight gain. But I did have water retention. My ankles and feet would be HUGE! My job as a CNA kept me on my feet a helluva lot which didn't help. Especially when I'd get mandated! All I could do was reduce my sodium intake (this was a BIG help), keep my feet up when I was able to rest. I only took the Celexa for about 3(?)months. I stopped taking it not because of any side effects, but because I didn't feel that it was helping me with my depression. I've been taking Wellbutrin (150mg twice a day) now. I LOVE IT!! I've yet to have any side effects from it. And I've actually lost weight since I started taking it!! Wellbutrin is also prescribed to people to help them quit smoking, too. And so, I've noticed that I haven't been smoking as much as I did before I started taking it!

Hope y'all had a great time camping!!!!

Hi Janel. My experience with Wellbutrin was just the same as yours. Lost 25 lbs in less than 2 months. Seems to work well for the depression and I did use it to quit smoking. That lasted about 3 months and then I thought I didn't need the meds anymore. I started smoking again and feeling depressed. I'm back on it now, 200 mgs a day, and feel great again. Haven't tried to quit smoking again yet but don't smoke near as much as I did before I quit. Especially my first 2 months on Sub. I smoked like crazy.

Anyway I learned how important the meds( Sub & WB) are as a part of my recovery and healing. Haven't been able to lose the 10lbs I put back on though. Damn guess I'll have to work at it now! LOL. It was like magic before. Not now.

I don't know if we've talked before so nice to meet you and take care.

Steve

Hi! Nice to meet you too!! Glad you had such success with the Wellbutrin. I have a doctor appointment today, and am planning on asking if maybe I should lower my Sub dose (I'm on 32mg daily since March) and/or increasing the WB or changing it altogether. I just feel horrible! I have absolutely NO ENERGY WHATSOEVER!!! I'm not tired or anything, I just have no "get up and go", ya know what I mean?

I know what you mean about smoking like a fiend when you started Sub! I did it too! It's like, OK, I gotta calm my nerves somehow without taking my DOC to do it!!

Hey, I'll take those 10lbs!! I could use em! Since I started Sub and WB I went down to 118lbs (from 149lbs.). I'm 5'11" and so it don't quite look right to me, lol!

Well...hope to talk to you soon! Take care!!!

Please be EXTREMELY cautious with Celexa + Suboxone. There are extreme drug interactions and can cause seizures. I learned this because I have a history of seizures and my doc tried to put me on Celexa to help with my ADHD. Also, I REFUSE to take it not only because of the seizures but also due to the fact that while I took it when I was 16, it caused the serious side effect of Suicidal thoughts/actions. I really wish that the doctors who deal with Suboxone would do a bit more research on the interactions and actually take into account the patients medical history. There are many other antidepressants to try that don't have those side effects that you are wary/afraid of. Wishing you well with your progress,
-Jennifer

I have been on anti-depressants for many, many years. I found that you really have to try a few to see which one 'fits' you. My doctor prescribed me Paxil, which made me sleep all day long, and frankly not care about anything. I tried Celexa, and didn't have any issues, but after being on it a long time, felt it stopped working. I now take Zoloft, and I love it. No side effects at all for me. Give it about a month or two, before giving up. You need to give the drug time to work, along with Suboxone. If you don't mind, what is your current dose of the anti?

Hi Jennifer, I am not aware of any documentation that shows "extreme drug interactions and can cause seizures" when taking celexa and suboxone. If you can please put the link on here showing where you came up with that it would be helpful.

Where I understand you may have had a bad reaction to the medications it might not be true for all. That is why unless there can be referenced documentation we have to be careful with what we say, or rather how we say it. I do agree that we must always be cautious when taking multiple medications-oftentimes a pharmacist will be most helpful in letting us know about any drug interactions-they work with the drugs a lot more than the drs. Best wishes,

Nan

Nan, when I started Suboxone as an inpatient, I recieved a packet of about 20 pages of information which is where I found the interaction. I will try to find a scanner so I can put that information up online as I cannot find that same information anywhere on the internet. I also believe it would be helpful to many to get information from as many different sources as possible. I am also aware that medications do interact differently according to the patients, so I understand where you are coming from and greatly appreciate your input. I just thought my experiences may be helpful to others as they are looking for what other people think. But overall, a physician's suggestions and knowledge should be put over anyone's opinions.

Hi Jennifer, I've checked the PIs for both Celexa and Suboxone and looked for any other interaction warnings and found nothing in either regarding interactions

Suboxone: http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/doc...emc0004-09.pdf

Celexa: http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsa...046s015lbl.pdf

Celexa does have a 'black box warning' for all anti-depressants and young adults and suicidality:

"Suicidality and Antidepressant Drugs
Antidepressants increased the risk compared to placebo of suicidal thinking and behavior (suicidality) in children, adolescents, and young adults in short-term studies of major depressive disorder (MDD) and other psychiatric disorders. Anyone considering the use of Celexa or any other antidepressant in a child, adolescent, or young adult must balance this risk with the clinical need. Short-term studies did not show an increase in the risk of suicidality with antidepressants compared to placebo in adults beyond age 24; there was a reduction in risk with antidepressants compared to placebo in adults aged 65 and older."



One other thing is that some drug interaction sites such as this one:
http://www.drugs.com/drug_interactions.php

can scare anyone with the number of interactions with other meds they list.
For example, I plugged in aspirin, which has been around forever and look at the it generated below.

So, the medication that is most dangerous mixed with Suboxone or any other respiratory depression is benzos - and that is in large quantities and when combined with other respiratory depressants such as alcohol.

I hope this helped.
