I used Celexa when it first came out to market, I would say compared to other SSRI - (Prozac, Luvox, Effexor, Paxil, etc....)
This medication was great! Very few side effects and very gentle on your system compared to the heavy hitters mentioned above
I had several family members also on Celexa/Lexapro with good results, for me it was the quickest acting antidepressant compared to the others (felt in two weeks vs 4-6 weeks on the other meds.)
Let me know who it continues to work for you!
