I reached a point that I knew I needed help. Tried prozac first-had sexual side effects. Have been taking 40 mg celexa 5 years.

I had an episode of Bell's Palsy, which resulted in my being out of work on disability. This led to depression, as I am a very social, and work oriented person. One small dose of this medication has helped me cope with the depression and I have been back to work for years now. I do continue to take the medication, as when I stop my thinking is fuzzy.

Comment:
I had gotten depressed and suicidal because of family problems with my children. It had gotten very bad with crying nonstop and even thinking about how to commit suicide. I knew I needed help. The celexa has been very helpful with the suicidal thoughts and the depression, the only things that bother me is I find it very hard to cry and like one of the other reviews I read, I feel numb. I'v ... Show Full Comment
