Hi everyone I am visiting from the Crohn's Board :) I have a question about Celexa my doctor just gave me a prescription for this. He said it would help me to taper down on my percocets a little since they heighten the effect of the percocets. I was reading on drugs.com though that taking percocets with anti-depressants like Celexa can cause serious sedation if that's the case why the heck would he give them to me? Im a little hesitant to trust what doctors tell me I have had bad experiences with doctors. Im also hoping that the Celexa will help the depression i've had due to the Crohn's and other things in my life. I've never been on any anti-depressants before. I did take Pamelor for a few days but it gave me a horrible headache so I quit taking it. Im a little worried about the side effects with Celexa. Also what is the difference between Celexa and Lexapro is one better then the other? Sorry for the all the questions! Thanks!
