Tammy, I've been on the Celexa for nearly a month now. I can't tell if its working or not. I am also on Methadone,Neurontin, Pamelor. I am sleepy all the time. I can't hardly work. And I am missing my mind, if you know what I mean. How did you go about getting on disability? I have been thinking about it.

Take care, Love, Tami m a At Mon, 22 Jul 2002, Tammy wrote: >
