I have been on celexa for 3 weeks now and have experienced only anxiety for the last several days. I am on 20 now and am considering taking 10 more at night. We moved to a new state a year ago and I have been depressed since so I asked the Dr for help. He said he only wants me to take this for 6 months. I am hoping by the end of the 6 months I can cope better.
