I took Celexa and it took six weeks to work. Of course it is different for everybody. Hang in there.

hello, A254 --

from what i've read in the materials about celexa/citalopram (see PS), it can take from one to four weeks to feel a difference but, as with most antidepressants, four to eight weeks to really "kick in" completely. so at two weeks, i think you're being a little premature.

if you continue to feel that things aren't getting better, call the dr.

I have been taking 20 mg of Celexa for about 5 weeks now and have noticed some change in myself, but the people around me on a normal basis say they can see a big change. My pdoc said with Celexa it can take upwards of 10 weeks to get a full effect. Hope it starts to work for you soon.... I can remember not feeling any different for the first 3-4 weeks... Hope my post helps... as always im here if you need someone to talk to !!!
