I would really speak to your doctor as soon as you can. I can't make an educated guess, but any time side effects impair your life, it would be a good idea to see your doc.

I took Celexa for 5 months before I could stop the yawning. Some side effects, like speeded up system don't necessarily go away.
Your pharmacist can give you some info over the phone or probably more in person, but you need to see the doc to get any med adjustment. Did you doc tell you to cut the dose?

I could not take lexapro. I switched to paxil. Love it. Contact you doctor.
