Re: switching back and forth celexa zoloft

Hello momstrong5.

I've experience with both Celexa and Zoloft, though I haven't switched back to back from one to the other. As Celexa and Zoloft are both in the same class of anti-depressants I don't see any problems with switching from one to the other, although I think it would be best to talk to your doctor to be certain.

Zoloft has been much more effective for me than Celexa and with less troublesome side-effects.
