    Ive been taking this for about 4 weeks. Ive noticed no major side effects - good or bad - and Im wondering if it has helped anyone here,and what are your experiences of taking it.

    lexapro has been a godsend..
    i took celexa for years..its precuror...
    it was nothing like lexapro..

    It is interesting to read what everyones experiences with it have been, for one, Amy, I didn't know it is Celebrex's precuror, I had great luck with the Celebrex but the Lexapro made me so sleepy I couldn't function. So, I just quit taking it. Thanks for asking this question as I have wondered about it, now I know why my doc gave it to me, as I had done so well with the Celebrex, if this is new I am sure he just thought this might work even better.

    Pam..u meant Celexa not Celebrex right..
    Lexapro is a much better drug...its a lot better metabolised and less work on your liver..
    it has been modified to not affect as many unneeded parts of your system as the earlier edition aka Celexa..
    if it makes u sleepy..take it at night?
    thats what i do cause it does make me sleepy, as did celexa actually..and then i dont need a drug to fight my insomnia :)
