> > I've seen many posts here from individuals who go to 40mg of Celexa and then say things like "20 and 30 did nothing for me.. 40 is what changed me." Unfortunately, they leave psycho-babble and don't come back so while we know that 40mg relieved their depression, we never get to find out if that continued for months or pooped out.

Hi Rockets - I've been meaning to thank you for your reply to me re: side effects from Celexa. I decided to forego you suggestions of eating numerous bananas (or smoking the peel although I tried that as a teen!). I think you were right about side effects being really stressful for someone who is already stressed out by anxiety/depression. Thanks for that; it helped put things into better perspective.

I had good results at 20 mg for the first 3 days (placebo? It didn't feel like it). Went down to 10mg for a few days (no SE's) then 15 mg (no SE's). Last nite I took 20 mgs. I think I feel a little less anxious, but I'm looking forward to that feeling I had at first. I'll keep you posted. What's your dose? How long have you been taking it? Is it helping?
