Advice & Tips: Now only 10 days on generic Celexa (switched to save money); was on Lexapro for 22 months, and never had such issues Now have major Insomnia (2 days & nights with only couple hours of fitful sleep), moderate dry throat (coughing), moderate racing thoughts, minor anxiety, noticeable increased intensity of MS symptoms (probably from lack of sleep). Skipped Celexa dose yesterday in effort to get sleep. Slept hard last night; still early in recovery today. Went back to Lexapro this morning. Called doctor's office to let them know.
