Hey Rick,
Just got back from the doctor's office. What do you know about Celexa Citalopram HBr? Any thing?? He said the choice of selection was mine but, I haven't a clue what to start with. DX: Moderate-Severe depression....can't really go into details right now but, you get the idea from my other e-mail.
Can you help with this one? I'm scared that this will be like the Effexor.
Thanks! Me
