Opinions on Celexa
Jan 11, 2007
I realize everyone is different, so I'm asking opinions. My doctor asked me to consider taking Paxil or Zoloft. She seemed only to consider those two because I exhibit more anxiety symptoms than depression. At least that's my understanding of what she was saying (why she wasn't considering anything else.) I was really worried about the weight gain side effect possibility, so I argued with her about it. She went ahead and gave me the presciption. She said she'd just start me with a low dose. I didn't fill it for over a month. When I finally got it filled, it turned out to be Celexa. I don't know if she changed her mind at the last minute or what.

So I'm asking your opinion on:

Why only Zoloft or Paxil and any thoughts on why it ended up being Celexa?

Does Celexa have weight gain as a side effect?

It's only a 10mg dose. Is that enough to make any difference?

Thanks for your input.
