It was very good for my depression when I first started it, but as i became well again the side effects were too much of a trade off. I had problems with fatigue, wind, memory, fluid retention and the inability to orgasam. Celexa is a very good drug and i am thankfull that it helped me climb out of my black hole.

> I had the sexual side-effects for a month, but they subsided! I had to cut my dose down, though; matter of fact, it took me a long time to get used to the stuff. I started in small increments. I've been on the stuff for five months now, and no more problems. I feel great!

I had virtually no side effects that I was aware of while taking it....but after reading these posts my memory has been awful!! I took it for about 8 months and was feeling much better so doc had me cut my dose in half for 2 weeks then stop and since I have stopped last week I can barely stand up I'm so dizzy & spacey....I feel like a junkie I just want to take some to feel better!!!I ran a red light the other night with my family in the car!!! VERY SCARY!! I'm sad to see I have several more weeks of this!!
