I was feeling better for about 3 weeks when I added 50 mgs of Klonopin to the mix at night. I'm now back to feeling very anxious again and irritable with depression setting in. I am thinking of changing to Celexa because I've heard it is "less active" and better for anxiety/panic attacks. I had very good luck with Paxil before, but it pooped out after I had my son 2 years ago. Anyone have any advice on changing to Celexa? Are the side effects less harsh than with Zoloft?

I found it a lot more tolerable than Zoloft. Zoloft made me groggy for a few hours and then whoosh!, agitated and restless. All the SSRI's have a somewhat different bag of side effects that go with them and they affect people differently, too. Celexa caused a lot more heartburn and reflux than Zoloft did for me, but I could sleep a *lot* better on Celexa than Zoloft!
