Good Morning challenged nurse,
 
Just a bit of info I have on Celexa.
 

Celexa's pros and cons:

Pros: Works well on the combination of anxiety & depression, is a good med to switch to if Prozac doesn't work or poops out on you as you typically avoid the short-term side effects during the switch.

Cons: The weight gain is bad for an SSRI.

I am sure you will be hearing from other members who take this medication.

Kindly,

Kitt
