After dealing with family illnesses and deaths for years I finally told my Doctor what was happening to me. She diagnosed my depression and started me on Celexa. Within days I started to think clearer and have purpose in my life. I think it is an amazing drug. Been on it about 2 years now.

I had some initial sleepiness which after 3 months has resolved, after 6-9 weeks I began to feel dramatically improved. I also have chronic joint pain which required Lortab 7.5 up to 4 times a day.
