> Lisa, I've noticed the neck pain, too, with both Zoloft and Celexa. I do have a tendency to get tense and sore neck muscles, but it has definitely been more pronounced while I've been on these medications.
> I also am being treated for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I would say the Celexa has made *some* difference, and even a little helps alot. The SSRI's seem to reduce my anxiety level and how much things upset me, so that the compulsions lose some of their edge - there's more "room" in my life for other things.
> The most disturbing side effect for me has been the sexual dysfunction. Prozac was actually the most effective for my OCD. I have since tried all the other SSRI's, hoping to find one that doesn't interfere with sex. I have had less trouble with Celexa than the others, and it has helped with the depression, too.

Torrey, I've been on celexa for 10 weeks and think it is great. Only down fall is similar to your "sexual dysfunction". Is there anything you know of that can help in this department? I've read that skipping
your dose on the weekends helps, althought, my doctor does not seem to think this will help. Any suggestions?

> > I have been on Celexa for 3 months. I have started to have a neck ache which I also had when I was on zoloft. It can be best described as a pulled neck muscle and aches like I have a "kink" in my neck. This is the whole reason I had to come off zoloft. Has any one experienced this?
> >I have also noticed the celexa does very little for my obcessive-compulsiveness & anger. Any input would be appreciated.
