> > I'm curious to know what side effects go along with the antidepressant drug, celexa. I recently went to the doctor in reference to a weight problem. I am 2 pounds below state regulations for phentermine. He explained to me that when I take care of my anxiety and depression, that my weight problem would take care of itself. I've searched the web for these side effects, but I only find dry mouth, nausea and sleepiness. I'm definitely sleepy and have nausea. I don't think I can work and take this drug.
> I'm a 53 year old male, with a 5 year history of looking for help with my depression. My doctors have tried about all there is in depression medication. Just started celexa, after beeing on max doseage of serzone for about ten months. I have not noticed any adverse side effects, as of yet. Would be interested in learning from others who have tried this drug. I understand it is quite new and has just been approved for us in the US a couple of months ago. I would be interested in finding someone in one of the European countries who has had experiences with celexa. Your patience and attention would be greatly appreciated. paul

I have taken prozac before, which made me very air headed. I'm 26 years old and a reporter for a local newspaper. This new drug, celexa, from what I understand is very new. I haven't had any of the "dry mouth" problems yet. If I had, I'm sure they would be noticeable, for I took pondimin along with phentermine three years ago, and the dry mouth side effect was terrible.
I have noticed myself a lot less motivated to do things since starting celexa. My job is very fast paced and anxiety comes along with it, so I fear that I'm butting my head against a brick wall by taking it. I have, though, had some gastrointestinal problems. I'm not sure if they are related to this drug, or just part of the "anxiety" that my doctor told me I had. These problems surfaced three days after starting celexa. Nausea and fatigue are my biggest problems right now. And I'm not eager to possess either one of these side effects!!
