Hello Emerson,

Welcome to A & P.  Many of the members are on the AD drugs for panic and anxiety and most will find one that works well for them.  I have heard good things about Celexa.  I use Cymbalta but I am sure you will hear from members that have used Celexa.

Nice to see you posting

Hey Emerson,

I've been on Celexa for a little over six months now and it's done wonders for me! My doctor prescribed it for my depression with the added benefit that it helps with anxiety. So, I'm much more my natural outgoing, bubbly self! :) Plus, it's helped me become more confident and get over my fear of speaking in public! :)

I've been on the celexa for 4 days now, and i'm pretty happy with it so far, It seems to make my anxiety a bit worse in the evening(I take it when i wake up) but other than that it seems to b e working out. I don't really feel any effects yet but I don't expect to only four days into it. I think I read on other posts on here that this drug doesn't take long to start working, I think I heard a week to two weeks. I hope so. I'm frustrated with my anxiety and guilty about having it. I've only had it since 2002 but it feels like I've had it for an eternity. I just want a normal life devoid of all this stress and this disease. I hate that it has control over my life. I mean sometimes I feel in control of it other times I don't. It's a wierd battle between me and my thoughts but I'm determined to win.
