I have been on Celexa for about a year, along with Xanax, which I have been on for 3+ years. I have been takin medication for over 10 years for depression & anxiety and feel I've tried everything in the book. When I first started taking Celexa & when I had my dosage upped, I felt very manic and hyper as well, causing me more anxiety… but overall I did feel better. After a week or two, the hypertension subsided and things seemed fine for a few months… then after a few months I feel like it has become ineffective. I have tried so many medications over the last decade or so, that I really don't know how I'm supposed to feel… what is normal anyways?

I was on Lexapro for years but when I lost my health insurance I had to switch to this since the generic for it was cheaper and it's a similar compound to Lexapro. On the 40mg dose. Not quite as good for me as Lexapro but it works. To be honest, I've been on SSRIs for so long I'm not sure what normal would feel like without them so I can't speak to side effects.

Initially this helped me but over time, it seemed less and less effective and now I feel like it does nothing at all but my doctor does not want to give me something else.

The first time I went on citalopram (celexa) I was prescribed 20mg a day, and it made me very manic and hyperactive, sort of felt a bit crazy, but it did really help me all the same. The second time I was put on it, about a year after I came off it the first time, the 20mg dose didn't work so I was given 40mg. This gave me high fevers every night and horrific sweats, among other things, which they didn't realise was down to the drug and spent a few months testing me for various cancers and other diseases, altogether an extremely traumatic experience that only worsened my depression and anxiety. The doctor had never seen or heard of these side effects happening on this drug before though (sweats are common, but without fever), so I think I must have been extremely unlucky, and it's not likely the same thing will happen to someone else.

Didn't really help me at all… :(

I've been on it now for a couple of weeks, and I feel a world of difference. My kids and husband have noticed a big change in me too. So far, this one has worked better for me than anything else I've tried, and I've been on several different antidepressants over the past 12 years.

I am with Londom, I gained way to much weight. I have high BP and the extra weight was not great. I am now on Celebrex 120mg and I really like it. It also helps with pain and works well on my fibro.
