  1. I'm back. Still alive and still a guinea pig. A few med changes since I posted last- all in my signature (I think I have it updated with everything, will have to check sometime). Have had a few health issues since February (ear- can't hear & pain & pressure in left side of face & neck, and a couple of random outbreak of hives) have seen a lot of doctors since February over these & of course all diagnosis' and the meds they gave to deal with it (steroids, antibiotics, antihistamines, etc) and have been super irritable. Had to cancel my February appt with my Pdoc b
  2. The reason I would like to stick with it is because it did in fact work, still does but just not as effective as before. As I am sure you know a tolerance is built to this drug so it does require larger doses over time, that's the issue. That's why I want to continue taking it but at a possibly higher dose as per common practice. That's what worries me concerning communicating my issue with the Pdoc and her perceived feelings over this type of drug. I haven't seen her yet since the Rx of Mirtazapine to let her know I have been having to cut the dose. Though I don't know if I should worry about
  3. I definitely don't want to go back to useless antidepressants after finding something that actually helps and I don't mind being on such a helpful substance. So I'd prefer to stick with what's working even if it requires larger doses. I still have been only taking it as Rx'd, I haven't ever tried upping the dose myself to see if it would help. I don't want to end up running out & needing 1 or throw up any red flags. I just don't do things like that. That's the thing- it did work for awhile, life felt pretty normal. Had ups and downs but they would've been worse without it & definitely
  4. I broke down and finally went through with it thoroughly to see a Tdoc then a Pdoc last year and since then have tried quite a few different meds for my Dx (see signature below). Just a few months back my Pdoc went on maternity leave (while I was just given the Buspar to try) and was assigned another Pdoc while she was away. When it was time to go back I went in and told him what issues I was having with the Buspar and he Rx'd me the Clonazepam (0.5mg 3x daily) to try. It did work for awhile. My regular Pdoc came back, she seen what I was on and pretty much said she didn't like the idea of any
  5. Just got rx'd Celexa myself recently. Took 1 pill and my side effects from just that 1- unable to sleep, dry mouth, mad jaw clench, stomach cramps, anxiety and a seriously horrible headache the next day. Just couldn't talk myself into a 2nd pill. Been debating on if I should call the Pdoc and let them know. Kind of been afraid they'd just tell me to keep taking it for the 6 weeks to see if the side effects subside.
  6. What is this little gizmo?

  7. Thank you olga I have done a tad of reading in the Anxiety forum and on other forums as well in between my Celexa researching. I just have to look into these meds thoroughly before I feel comfortable taking them. Which might not always be a good idea lol. And thank you for the warm welcome as well.
  8. Hello, I am not very good at introductions but here it goes... I have had anxiety far as long as I can remember and have just dealt with it all this time thinking it was normal and/or it would get better. As time went on it hadn't and actually got worse. I had tried to go in to see someone before but left shortly after they gave the paperwork to fill out initially and never went back. This year I decided to try and better myself and try to stick with it. In the past I have tried other means- exercising, hobbies, meditation, etc. of which none had worked. I first mentioned it to my GP, he
