    I find that I have better control over my emotions. Along with exercise, positive thinking and taking care of my spiritual self feel positive about my future. After reading some of the comments posted, I am comforted by the fact that my physican started me off slow and is not over medicating me.

    I've been on Celexa for about 4 months. I've gained about 20 pounds, but the medicine works so well for the depression, I'm not even upset about it. The only problem I have is my period has gotten very irregular. I'm not sure if this is because of the drug or because I turned 40 this summer.

Now the 1st month i was on it I was SO extremely happy- that has worn off but it is still effective for the most part. I am only taking 20 mg. It definitely helps you to deal with the small stuff, whereas before the small stuff seemed like big stuff. So far so good. I have had some headaces though and the fir ... Show Full Comment
