Hey Peter, boring old me again :)...just noticed your post. I can't remember if I told you on your initial thread, but the GAD anticipatory worries and the resulting insomnia were my first symptoms of my anxiety disorder. After resisting my doc for some time, I agreed to go on Celexa, and it worked like a hot damn for that!! I recommend it! Even now, after coming off Celexa 15 months later, I have no return of those kinds of worries. Just the panicky, hit you from nowhere anxieties that Klonipin seems to be addressing. Also, my daughter has recently started taking Celexa for the same reason and has found it be equally successful.
Somehow I doubt that, if you're taking Klonipin, any initial start-up agitation/anxiety from Celexa, would be an issue. I (and my daughter, likewise) found no such symptoms on starting Celexa. I can't comment on Prozac, never taken it. The only 2 people I know that have been on it said they felt like zombies all the time!
However, I'm not sure the Celexa really stopped me from being "withrawn" consistently..I definitely had "down" times whilst on it. Hope you are able to say "yes" and mean it to at least one invite, over there.
Enjoy the rest of your hols!
