> Hi, I've been using celexa for abouth eight weeks at 20mg./day. I was on zolof for a month prior which gave me the shakes and constant tiredness. What i wanted to share with you is this: Three days ago i had a seziure which lasted approx. 5-10 seconds. At first i thought there was an earth quake... The next day i could feel bruises all over my body. One on my side was evidently caused by my elbow. I've seen one epiliptic seizure once and i'd have to say that this episode was the same... Has anyone else experienced this? Please respond.... Thanks, Take Care

Have been on Celexa about 7 months and the only side effect I had was some blurred vision at first which did go away. Haven't heard anything about seizures. If you do learn that Celexa was the cause, I would love to know! Pam
