    Why not call your doc and ask for 1 week of samples. They are no cost to him/her. It,s better not to stop and start with celexa,especially if it has been helpful.

    ADditional exercise will help, too. And eating less sugar if you eat much sugar/carbs.

    Celexa vivid dreams, sleeping pill, 30 minutes, surroundings, depression
    Celexa is the best sleeping pill ever! However, it causes me to have very vivid dreams, I wake up very anxious and fearful of my surroundings. Once awake, it takes me 15-30 minutes to realize that it was just a dream and not reality, Mike

    I just heard about niacin the other day, something to think about. Good for your BF, I am so tired of all the ups and downs, maybe niacin is my next step, and you don't need a script. So Big Pharma can chew on that for a while.
