Lexapro vs Celexa?

Hi Everyone, I was wondering, if anyone has had a bad experience with Lexapro that didn't work for them, but found that Celexa did? I tried Lexapro for 3 weeks, and the side effects, restless legs 24/7, nightmares, other se's, my Dr. put me on it. Switched me to Effexor. Having a hard time with this one too!
I was wondering if I could try Celexa? I would like something less stimulating, and I know Lex and Celexa are related, but would like some input.

Re: Lexapro vs Celexa?

I have been on both and I find that I tolerate the lexapro a lot better than the celexa. The celexa is too stimulating. I have PD and severe GAD. There are only two SSRI's that I have ever been able to tolerate and I have tried nearly all of them. The two I can tolerate are lexapro and zoloft. Unfortunately, both of these do very little in alleviating my GAD. They do help control the panic attacks however but the GAD is not impacted that much. The GAD is actually more bothersome to me than the panic attacks.
