Red face Celexa

Has anyone taking Celexa for depression ? Any problems with weight gain or any other bad side effects.

Re: Celexa

I took it years ago to treat non-depression health issues. I gained weight but no other side effects. My husband has been on it for about 5 years for depression. He takes his at night with no side effects other than occasionally feeling tired the next morning.

Re: Celexa

Re: Celexa

Over a period of about a year, I gained about 10 lbs. My husband takes 40 mg per day.

Re: Celexa

taking my first dose tonight in years. I use to like it then went off for a long time. Tried Wellbrutin, made me have rage issues. never had them before. Only on them a couple of weeks. Hope I don't gain weight. I am chunky as it is. and Hope it helps with wanting to be more sociable. Taking 20 mg.
