Changed from Zoloft to Celexa 20mg. Worked great for me. Keeps me calm and feeling normal. No side effects as of yet, and I have been on them for almost a month. I would recommend trying this.

No real side effects except he needs to take it in the morning. Doctor is now decreasing dosage to wean him off in preference of a new drug. This change, 2 weeks in, seems to be doing the trick.
