celexa causing my anxiety?

Hi,
So I started taking celexa on thursday....just 5mg/day.  I have anxiety over taking pills and because I had taken paxil before and hallucinated and ended up in the mental hospital and since celexa is in the same SSRI family, I think I am having major anxiety over taking this new drug.  I mainly have anxiety when I first wake up and then right before I go to sleep.  I have a feeling that it's not the celexa giving me anxiety but rather me being nervous about starting a new drug and then what if I have a horrible side effect from it and then I will feel trapped because I won't be able to just stop it.  So my question is, does it seem likely that the celexa is causing my anxiety?  Anyone else experienced this?  Does anyone know how long before I will be in the clear for developing any bad side effects?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Help!

Thanks,
Rori
