My doctor just prescribed Celexa for me for my depression. I was wondering if anyone has taken it or is currently on it? I was on Prozac before and it totally messed me up!!! It was so bad that I went without meds for months! Now that it's almost Winter I figured I should be back on something, Winter is the WORST time for me!! Any advice??

  • My good friend is taking it. She swears by it. She went from couch potato to living life. She doesn't like to take a lot of meds but she really likes Celexa.

  • While all the SSRI meds pretty much do the same thing, they all do it in a different way, so finding the one that works for you will be trial & error. My son did terrible on Celexa, but was very stable on Prozac.
