> > I read a recent study that showed celexa did *not* downregulate the adrenoreceptors like did sertraline or paroxetine. It did however downregulate the 5-ht2a receptors. Personally I do not find celexa as good for panic as zoloft or paxil. I am looking for more studies

It's not really pure, only marketed that way. Celexa blocks H1 receptors next rather than the other reuptake sites.
