    Hi all,
    my doc just prescribed Celexa but i found out it's not covered by my hmo (surprise surprise)...is Effexor or Effexor XR a comparable substitute? my hmo will cover that or paxil or zoloft but i've already tried the other two in the past without good results.

    My apologies, I know I could probably search through previous posts for the info, but i'm at work at the moment (and i don't have the energy at the moment to read through everything).
    any info would be great. thanks again for being there.

    peace ~ tara

    I am on Celexa, I love it. Hate zoloft and prozac. Tried Effexor, I had to wake up and urinate several times in the nite. I have the same problem as you, my mailorder pharmacy is taking it off their preferred drug list. What a surprise since it works.

    Good Luck
