I was just researching about Celexa b/c I was on it a couple of years ago, and just wanted to see what everyone elses side effects were.
Being off of it, I had been switched to Lexapro. Just wanted you guys to know what my side effects were on Celexa. When I went on Celexa I was VERY depressed. Had no appetite. I went from being 130 to 112 lbs in a couple of weeks. I felt good about the weight loss but, my whole life was in an uproar. Anyway, my doctor had said that there was no weight gain with Celexa. So, I tried it. I remember the first week, I was very very nauseaus. I actually vomited from it. It caused me to have insomnia alot in the beginning. But, as for my mood, everyone saw a positive change. Weight came back, little by little but, I definately relate it to the med b/c I did not eat alot. When I told my dr. about the weight gain, he said it was next to impossible. I stayed on Celexa for about 2 yrs. Then Lexapro came out, supposed to be better. I hated Lexapro, always tired, more weight gain. I was on everything for 3 1/2 yrs. I am now 136 lbs. If it was not for the antidepressants, God knows where my life would be today. They really do help a person. But, they do not take away the problem. Just to let everyone know, at the same time I was on Celexa and Lexapro, I was also on Wellbutrin SR to help the weight gain.
Well, hope you find my experience helpful.
