Question

Feel like a zombie on Celexa (citalopram)?
I feel emotionally detatched. I've been taking it for about 2 weeks on 10 mg. Will this go away or should I quit taking it all together?

Hi, I am not a Doctor But have had taken Celexa and other antidepressants over the years, So This is My opinion. At 2 weeks you should of adjusted some and Celexa is one that works pretty quick, so call your doctor. They all make you feel weird in the beginning. Let them know you are sensitive so they will start you real low and gradually increase. I really don't like the fact you still feel emotionally detached after 2 weeks You really need to call the Doc and Let them know. Do not stop on your own, It can make things worse. Sometimes they have to try a few def.. ones. Call Doc ASAP Good Luck

What is Depression

Depression is a mental illness marked by feelings of profound sadness and lack of interest in activities. Depression is not the same as a blue mood. It is a persistent low mood that interferes with the ability to function and appreciate things in life. It may cause a wide range of symptoms, both physical and emotional. It can last for weeks, months, or years. People with depression rarely recover without treatment.
