    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.

    This is my 2nd day on Citalopram 20mg. I take it at night. Seems to relieve negative thought patterns. Side effects so far: yawning, dry mouth, jittery in am. I'll check back in a bit.

    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.
