Comment:
I had severe depression and was reliving childhood abuse trauma through nightmares. I tried taking Celexa in the morning but it made me too sleepy to function.

I've had no side effects and I'm generally sensitive to medications.

Comment:
While probably not for everyone, Celexa has made a wonderful difference in my ability to deal with severe depressive episodes (as well as normal day-to-day events) in my life. It has no side effects such as weight gain. I have not attempted to stop taking it, however, I went through a terrible withdrawal from Paxil a few years ago. Hopefully, Celexa won't produce similar results. I'd ... Show Full Comment
