My PCP and I decided to switch up my anti-depressant. Some of the side effects of Celexa were starting to get annoying. I was ale to deal with them at the 20mg dose, but when we upped that to 40mg, they become much worse.
So far things seem OK with my mood. I seem a bit happier. She did warn me that some people experience manic episodes or anxiety. So I might be experiencing some mania. That's OK.
Unfortunately I am also experiencing some of the not so pleasant side effects, such as sleeplessness and nausea. The nausea is the worst. I can deal with some restless sleeping, but feeling sick to my stomach for a few hours a day is just blah. Yesterday was the first day I really noticed it. Sunday I felt a little nauseous but it passed quickly. Yesterday however, I ended up laying down to try to get it to pass. I had gotten up at 6am (woke up and couldn't get back to sleep) so I thought maybe that was the issue. That didn't work so I had some ritz crackers and plain white rice and I felt much better! Seemed I needed some food in me. Today I am trying that again, but with a bagel and butter. So far its not working. I might have to whip out the white rice again today. I also noticed that it seems to come on at the same time. Yesterday it was around 10am and today it was just a little before that. I might try taking it in the mornings and seeing if that helps any.
Anyway, that is it for me. I have a meeting with the transplant team next Wednesday to go over everything so I will make sure to post what happens!
