I am on Celexa and I really like it. I like it better than Paxil and Zoloft.

I took it and had no bad experience, I had NO experience.  It totally did not work for me, even at the highest dose.

I am on celexa 40. Can't really tell if its working or if I've adjusted to it. I've been on it for a few months. I had decreased appetite in the beginning but that lasted like 4 days.I lost a few pounds lol.

That is one that has never been suggested to me.  If I were you and you feel like meds might help your depression/anxiety I would give it a try plus time to take effect.

I've never been on meds for this but I've never dealt with this either till now ....started a few months ago. Sometimes the anxiety is crazy other times not so bad the depression feels almost constant. I go to therapy and my therapist says it's very important I take it not only to help me on a day to day basis but to help me cope better when we talk about my nephews suicide

I was on celexa 40 and it drove me crazier literally. I have bi polar ptsd anxiety and panic attacks and celexa aggravates bi polar and brings on the symtoms x's 10. If you dont have bi polar or anxiety it may work for you. All it did for me was put me on a 72 hr hold for attempted suicide. Good luck I hope it does work for you and can help you.

I have been on it for a long time. I have not had any side affects from it. When my daughter started taking it she took it at night before bed,she said that she would wake up refreshed and was wide awake all day
