Hi, I am new to this website and thought this would be a great place to ask questions.
I started Celexa 20mg on Jan 2nd for clinical depression and anxiety. I have taken Celexa previously, and it worked well. I ended up taking myself off of it without consulting my doctor which did not end up well.
When I quit taking Celexa, I engaged in very risky behavior and used a lot of recreational drugs (mainly psychedelics).
I have been on Celexa for almost a month now, and I find it isn't working how it did the first time I took it. I'm wondering if I need to give it a little more time, or, if through all of my psychedelic use I altered my brain chemistry to the point where this AD no longer works for me.
Ive been having pretty bad headaches and every day I feel super anxious and restless. The only positive thing so far is that a lot of my anxious thoughts I used to have aren't there anymore but I still feel the physical feelings of anxiety in my stomach/chest/etc.
Does anyone have experience using psychedelics or other recreational drugs that can offer advice on starting/finding the right AD?
Thank you in advance.
