Re: More research: Celexa versus Lexapro

Well I'm giving Celexa (Citalopram) a try, starting with very low dose and titrating up (due to my sensitivities). I know it is not "approved" for anxiety treatment, but it is noted in several reports that it is prescribed off-label for this in the U.S. (is approved for anxiety in several other countries). It was pointed out that even though not approved for anxiety in the U.S., this is because it was not submitted for approval for treatment of anxiety (maybe because the drug creator was focusing on Lexapro at that time and more interested in studies that would switch people over to that).

There is one older and small U.S. study which showed patients with Generalized Anxiety disorder responded to Celexa (this may have been before Lexapro appeared on the market): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11981350#
