Hi,
I know I can research Celexa but somehow I like to hear what real people
say about a medication.
I know that it's for Depression but I believe Depression and Anxiety go
together. if you're in danger of having a panic attack, it's dam n
depressing.
My questionz: Has anyone gained weigh on Celexa? This thought
certainly causes Anxiety. shocked

I loved the Tree Test Celey.

Thanks Lyn,

Maybe someone else will check in. But from what you say, I better step on those
scales that my husband put beside my bed. TOMORROW MORNING.

Uh, how much did you gain?

Pamela

Amazingly, Celexa helps both Anxiety, Depression and Pain. I'm on 30 mgs.

Hi

I took Celexa for over a year and was on the max dose of 60mg, I did not gain any weight on this medication. Hope the Celexa works well for you Pamela

I was on Celexa for a few years and didn't really notice weight gain. I am on it again now and I don't think that's what's causing my current weight gain. I take several other meds that are more likely to be causing the weight gain.

I take it for anxiety. It has helped me SO much, I'm a whole new person. I don't think I've gained much on it yet. But even if I do it's just something I'll deal with. I'd rather be fat and happy, then skinny and miserable! :)
