Thumbs up Celexa

has anyone tried this stuff before?

I actually have to recommend it. ive been having pretty bad anxiety and depression over the past couple of months, and im only on day 5 of this stuff @ 10mg and i'm already noticing a moderate improvement in my mood not that many side effects. okay at first i have to admit it does give you a bit of anxiety / wired feeling and mild nausea for the first couple of days, i have to take it in the mornings if i hope to get any sleep. and i absolutley cant combine it with alcohol or i'll be sick for like 2 days, but other than that i find it working pretty good and the side effects are less and less each day. but like i said if you try and drink, even a little, you'll be back to square one the next day starting all over with the side effects but times 10.

so i have to recommend this if you're depressed or have anxiety and are worried about side effects (god knows i was scared to death of taking SSRI's cause of the dreadfull stories i've read)

Re: Celexa

Took it for 8 weeks. Started at 20mgs. Made me too tired. Now I am on lexapro, 3 weeks. About the same as celexa but took longer to get there. Felt celexa in 4 or 5 days. Just started sleeping through the night on the lexapro. Glad it works for you. Godbless
