Trish - if any drug is 'better than' another, it's because it works better for you. I've also found that a drug that worked well at one time, might not provide any benefit at all if you take it months or years later.

My daughter has debilitating OCD and was first prescribed Anafranil, which is supposedly the 'industry standard' for OCD. It did nothing but make her sleep and gain weight. After some futile trials on SSRI's she was given Zoloft and she is thriving on it.

No advice here really except to say don't ever rule anything out because you never know what might work for you. If your doctor has approved supplementing Anafranil with Celexa - give it a shot. Good luck.
