      I took celexa (actually citalopram which is generic) for anxiety because I was just feeling on edge and I’d get pretty panicky going into my college exams and stuff and feel that way leading up to days I had something big like that. I only had 5mg and it helped me get past that. But I found it to make me feel just a little bleh and I was sick of not feeling my emotions very well and I didn’t really feel so anxious over every little thing so I went off of it. Overall I liked it so I’d say worth a try!

      Celexa helped my depression and anxiety. Along with clonazepam taken as needed. Only problem is it makes me drowsy and have gained some weight.

      I am taking celexa for depression. For anxiety I prefer lorazepam it relaxes me better

      I got the same treatment for anxiety. Was told to take Valium as needed until I felt better, which means the celexa started working.

      I took Celexa for depression but not for anxiety. It helped me a lot. But I probably helped me with anxiety too. I was in a better mood and I felt better.

      I know a lot of people that take celexa for anxiety and it seems to help them a lot.
