> I have noticed with Prozac, Zoloft, and now Celexa that as I work up the dosage amount (my PDoc believes in start low, go slow) when I hit from 50 to 100 % of the "average" dose I get a lot of anxiety symptoms.
> So far Celexa looks like the most effective for A/D. Am I better off combining with a benzo or working back down the dosage scale?
> Why does more serotonin cause anxiety instead of calm?

I don't know what causes it, but I had a lot of weird fears when I first started taking Celexa -afraid to go to sleep for fear that the puppy (who is a large dog) would stick his nose under my pillow and suffocate, etc. I wasn't like this before, and it wore off after a few weeks, so it might get better if you can stick it out - I know that's easier said than done.
