On Celexa, then later generic citalopram, 20 mg, for over 7 years now. No major depressive episodes or panic attacks (other than a few caused by other drugs) during this time.

Best thing I've ever taken. I found myself turning into this scared of everything person that just wanted to sleep all the time and it has turned everything around for me. It has even helped me to not crave food half as much! It allowed me to be more confident at work, with myself, and even in my classes in college! I would recommend it to anyone.
