Does The Insomnia /lack Of Appetite Go Away?
Posted 28 April 2011 - 06:11 PM
Also, as part of my depression and anxiety, I stopped eating an lost a ton of weight. I'm hoping I will eventually get back my appetite but have read that celexa causes loss of appetite. Can anyone tell me if this is true, or does appetite tend to return to normal after some time?

yeah the insomnia should go away, im on lexapro for depression and klonopin for anxiety + sleep aid. At first bc of the lexapro despite the K it would only let me sleep about 2 or 3 hours and wake me up with shakes....dont give up yet bc the first few days you might be discouraged, but just wait it out and after a week or week and a half or so if it doesnt go away consult with ur doctor. Remember everyone is diff, some people have to change their combination a few times, and some people are pleased with their first so it just depends. But dont give up!

Also about the appetite thing, AD's are notorious for stimulating your appetite, dont worry about that, you may well gain more weight than you wished back so take it easy when the appetite returns.
Good Luck and best wishes so the answer is yes and yes to your two questions.

Again, thank you so much for the feedaback and support. It means a lot and is extremely encouraging to me.

My doctor yesterday talked to me about "sleep hygiene..." I'm sure you've heard it: Don't eat late at night, don't drink alcohol, don't exercise or watch Tv before sleep, only sleep in your bed, etc. etc.
Anyways, I didn't have lack of appetite either. I assume that is a start up side effect and will pass...
