    Celexa was the second SSRI I had ever taken, and during my time on it, I experienced some of the worst side effects I had/have had on medications. I gained 40 pounds, and my metabolism was essentially ruined. My anxiety worsened significantly, and my depression stayed about the same.

    I have lost both my parents, my husband and a best friend in the last 18 months to death. I have no more family. I decided to go 6 months ago just before I lost my husband and get some help. I was in counseling and it was helping but I was tired of crying all the time and so much mood swings.

I don't feel numb to emotion, in fact I feel like I have better control over my ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Celexa has kept me from having severe panic attacks and has leveled me out with my depression. I have been taking it celexa for about 3 years and am in the process of reducing my dose. The only major downside is I have no sense of ever being full so I have gained quite a bit of weight.
