Brief Answer:
Celexa may take 1-2 more weeks to show effect.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.
I can understand your concerns.

You are taking a number of drugs and recently started celexa.

The main problem is getting agitated and screaming at your husband and crying a lot.

Since it has only been 8 days with celexa, You should wait for 1-2 more weeks for drug to show its full effect.

Estradiol can also cause mood swings and has interactions with celexa (and other antidepressants). This may also cause some delay in onset of effect of celexa.

I would also suggest you to practice relaxation exercises like deep breathing and meditation to keep yourself calm.

Keep in regular follow up with your doctor.

Hope this helps.
Feel free to ask further.
