I started on 50 mg and that didn't seem to be quite enough--I am switching from the generic form of Celexa because there has been more testing done with Zoloft and it's generic form Sertraline during pregnancy; my husband and I are trying to start a family. My doctor raised the dosage to 100 mg and that has been very good with the depression symptoms but now I've had terrible diarrhea ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking this medicine for four months now. I am taking it to treat my depression and panic attacks, which I started having when was 13 years old, after trying to cope with my anxiety with "mind over matter" after 6 years I was tried.

I feel like my old self again. It's only been a month and I feel in control again. It's a life saver for me and my family. I can now cope with things normally and not hide away and worry obsessivly.

Comment:
I have been taking this medication for just over a month and have recently doubled my dose to 100mg daily b/c it wasn't previously helping. Starting the medication gave me hope, and continuing it helped me feel better more often and for longer periods of time.
