CELEXA: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Anxiety and Stress “I started on the generic brand around Christmas time of 2017, as Christmas is a time of socialization and stress! I have a lot of social anxiety and depression. So bad that it put my relationship on the line. I figured it was time to visit my (fantastic) doctor! I was put on 10mg a day for 6 weeks and did not see much of a difference. I was then bumped up to 20mg a day and I am a new person! My mood is improved, I can start a conversation with a stranger, and my anxiety is gone! The side effects I have are minimal compared to the pro’s of the medication. I have increased sweating, which mainly contains itself to my fingertips, so it’s not bad! My brain is a little foggy all the time, and I have decreased sex drive. Not too bad for the cons of Citalopram! I highly recommend this life changing medication!”

For Anxiety and Stress “This medication helped with my anxiety and rolling panic attacks. At the time I tried to stay on the medication and was monitored by a psychiatrist weekly. It helped my panic attacks stay at a 2/10 severity. It also helped me sleep; but then I was sleeping 16h a day. I started having auditory hallucinations and immediately went to visit my psychiatrist. She said it was normal, and not to be worried. Well I stayed on it for a total of 5-6 weeks and ended up suicidal. As soon as I was admitted to the psychiatric unit and taken off this drug the hallucinations stopped. Would never every in a million years recommend this to anyone unless you are monitored very closely.”

For Depression “This med work pretty good for depression and anxiety. However I gained over 25 pounds in 4 months and stopped taking it due to massive weight gain.”

For Anxiety and Stress “After 16 years of a great marriage (I thought and all our family and friends did) 3 kids. My wife decided to separate? We have NO FAMILY or true friends in the state we live in. So off guard and practically felt homeless. After so many months of trying to “man up .” I told myself “You need help!” I was not in a good place, but covered it and still covering it up well. Just started Celexa only a couple days now. Really looking forward to getting back to myself. Will give my update as time goes. Thanks for everyone’s experience!”

For Anxiety and Stress “The only thing worse than my experience on Celexa was my experience getting off it. I had brain zaps every morning for 8 months, zaps that would only go away if I went back to sleep and essentially gave in to “oversleeping.” Its now 1 year later and I still feel the withdrawal side effects. Taking this medication is one of the worst mistakes of my life.”
