Hi name is Jody and I was on Celexa for about a month and a half. I quit taking it about 3 weeks ago. I was having really bad side anger got worse, diarrhea, dry mouth, I was constantly clinching my teeth, very tired and my sex drive went downhill. I am just now losing the side effects after 3 weeks of being off the medicine. My questions are...1) My doctor told me that Celexa is the same thing as Prozac but without the side effects. Is this true?? I felt like I was worse on the meds than off of them. I am now finding myself having really bad mood minute really giddy and happy, the next angry and (what I think is) mildly depressed. Right now I don't know how I feel and what I should feel like.

Just felt like sharing. Thanks for the ear.

I did have slight nausea but only for the first 3 days or so. I am just noticing that the constipation is clearing up, but the dry mouth is ever-present so I just drink a lot of water! The sexual delay is also still there -- but getting better.

> >I've been on celexa for around 2 months. The side effects do go away eventually. Although I still do have an upset stomach occassionally. My sex drive has gone down (I am a female.) and it sucks. I still have sex often, but my 'drive' has decreased. Celexa has helped with some depression and anxiety, but I am still quite anxious. Hope this has helped.
