Re: Info on Celexa/citalopram

In reply to Info on Celexa/citalopram, posted by Daniel on March 24, 1999, at 8:54:47

It's probably not more effective than other
antidepressants. It is thought to be the
most Serotonin selective of the SSRI's
(Prozac, Paxil, Luvox, Zoloft, Celexa) which
means only that it is likely to have less side
effects. So, in general, it is good, likely
to be no better than other antidepressants
(though likely to not be worse), and thought to
have SLIGHTLY less side effects and better
tolerability than the other SSRI's.
