I’ve been taking Celexa 10mg for 3 weeks now and over the last 3-4 days I’ve been noticing a really high increase in my overall anxiety and depression symptoms. I feel awful. My mind is racing and I just do not feel myself at all. I called my doctor’s office but haven’t received a call back yet. I’m just kind of wanting to know if this is normal at first and will likely go away soon or if this is something to be concerned about.
All I know is that I can’t handle this amount of anxiety/depression for many more days. Hopefully my doctor calls me back soon with some advice on what to do.

I am sorry your doctor still has not called you back. I really hope they get in contact soon.

Have you taken antidepressants before?

They do settle down after a while, but you shouldn't feel as bad as you describe. You are right to be worried. I was very ill when i first took antidepressants and it happened within days. I was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder but i have also akathisia on one antidepressant. That is hell on earth.

If you stop them suddenly, you might feel 100 x worse.
