  • I feel your pain...And all the stress and little things that just piss you off! I went to my doctor and told her that I REALLY needed an anti-depressant she gave me Citalopram which is the CHEAP but GOOD generic for Celexa. I feel so much better...Less stressed less pissy and I can even stand to talk to my husband when before I could really care less about him. Now I feel back to normal and I feel more organized in my thoughts. I have been taking them for a year. I am starting to get were I can go awhile without. BUT I know when I better go get my refill. Being a mom of a couple kids at once is TUFF. And there is nothing wrong admiting to yourself that you may need a pill for depression..In the end It really helped my marriage. And Your babiesdon't need to see mommy feeling down all the time. I feel I can let loose more and play and spend more quality time with my 3 boys. 1-1yr and 2 -2yr boys. Talk to your doc I'm glad I did.

  • Taking antidepressants without therapy is like taking pain killers for a broken leg without putting a cast on the leg..
