Comment:
I am taking 20 mg Celexa in the evening. It helps me feel like myself on a good day, every day. I am less impulsive, more reflective, but also less likely to laugh spontaneously. I have gained weight on anti-depressant SSRI's in general and my sexual drive is very low. I am also taking Wellbutrin (150 mg) in the AM. It offsets the tiredness and helps with my sex drive, just a little.

Comment:
It was hard for me to admit I had mild depression and even more difficult for me to begin taking medication for it. I always felt like I should be able to control how I feel.
