A clear case of Your Mileage May Vary!

My personal experience with Celexa was truly horrible. My anxiety was so high I became dissociated and had a sort of out-of-body experience, watching myself try to do normal things from a "safe" corner of my mind. I got off it quickly -- luckily (!) it also affected my liver in combo with trazadone, so I had a good excuse to drop it.

Later my pDoc put me on Lexapro; accepting the early wisdom of the time, he said it had 95% of the antidepressant action of Celexa, and only 5% of the side effects. Later research has questioned this, but my personal experience was absolutely, Yes. We're all different; Effexor, supposed to be good for GAD, also drives me crazy with anxiety.
