Hello,wsduke, I have been on Celexa for two months now. I started with 1/2 a tablet for a week, then took 1 tablet for 2 weeks, and I take 2 tablets each day. They are 20 mg each. I didn't feel any better for about a month,
but as a started taking 2 tabs I could feel an improvement in my mood and feeling of well being, I have had no side effects. I take my two pills in the morning after I have eaten something, I tried wellbutrin and it did nothing. I will stay on two a day and plan to feel better and better. Hope it works for you. Annie5times

I take 30mg/day of celexa. 20 was not quite enough. My doc recommended taking the Celexa at night and taking Welbutrin in the morning. This has worked well for me.
