loss of appetite with Celexa?

I have been on Celexa for about 5 months and lost 15 lbs. on it, just wondering if anyone else has done this.

Not me. My appetite increased when I tried Celexa.

I took Celexa for about 5 months and I did notice it decreased my appetite. It also was a small dosage, I got bad anxiety, so that attributed to the low appetite. I am on Nortriptyline now and notice it also doesn't make me want to eat a lot. The only thing that did was Effexor.

Re: loss of appetite with Celexa?

What is Celexa supposed to do? Because I am on 300mgs of Wellbutron for depression, but I was just prescribed 20mgs of Citalopram (Celexa) for anxiety along with the Wellbutron. However, I haven't taken the Celexa yet because the Dr. who prescribed it was not my home Dr. and I want to hear what my Dr. says before I start taking it. But what does it or is it supposed to do?
