I taken Celexa several times over the years & worked well for me. The one problem was the lack of sexual intererst. Never tried Buspar.

I have taken buspar 15 mg daily for about a year now. I love it. My doc just stared me on 20 mg celexa and I feel worse than I did before. nausea, dizziness, cant sleep, very tired. did u have any of these problems?
dkrev replied to vickieki's response:
I am taking buspar 10 mg 3xs daily and it works great for me. I have suffered with anxiety and depression for many years. But would not admit it to my Dr. I finally gave in because of difficulty sleeping and being so tired. I feel much better, and I can sleep when I am tired.

HelloNicko1129 I am no Dr...I am replying to your question of buspirone (15 mg) and celexa (20 mg) together once a day. I was prescribe the same thing except, I have been taking buspirone (15 mg) for 3 months now and feel better but was still having somewhat panic attacks.. My Dr. prescribe me Celexa (20mg) to go with the buspirone (15 mg) and break in half.. But the Pharmacist said I should break in half again to wean myself into the Celexa.. However, I take my buspirone @ 7:07 each morning and my Celexa around 12:00 noon.. I Have talked to 3 different Pharmacist, and all three said it was completly safe to take the two..Goes to show you can't read and believe all the negativity reports online.. I feel GREAT.. God bless you!
