Re: Which is better prozac or celexa?? Need help.

Hello my name is Steven, I deal with severe anxiety. The anxiety is brought on by having addison disease. I also have thyroid disease,back operation and p.t disease. I take a few medications for these things. I have been given many anti anxiety meds but nothing seemed to help. After 40 years of dealing with these illnesses I have found dealing with the anxiety is better than any meds. I am 40 years old now, so all my life I have fought bad thoughts, tiredness,overweight,and no energy. Please ask any questions and any help you may have. Thanks to all.

Hi Steven, I am sorry to hear that. Hope all gets better for you in Jesus name. && Ugh I honestly don't know what to do. I also have severe anxiety like really bad! I now know how to deal with my panic attacks and prevent getting one but the thing here is, i get weird sensation feelings in my body without even feeling anxious. I mean is this normal? I hate feeling those weird odd things, that's why I want to take the pills! ):

I would try the Prozac first.. It is much easier to wean yourself off of than the Celexa. Prozac has been around for many years and works well.
Best of Luck to you, I know what a hard decision it is to start taking something like this, but it will help you in the long run.
