    Celexa and Lupus

    I've been diagnosed with SLE for over 12 years now and have been very fortunate so far in my journey with Lupus. My doctor recently prescribed Celera for me. I'm not depressed and rather am a very happy, outgoing person. Anyone out there taking Celexa and what are you experiencing with it?


    Thanks.

    I take the generic form of Celexa. I'm on 40 mg a day, but can't tell that I've taken it. It doesn't make me woozy, or sleepy, or zombieized. But, I can't tell that it really helps either. I don't get too depressed most of the time, but, do have bouts with anxiety. I'm not much help, I guess. But, I haven't had any side effects from it. Good luck with it.
