Listed below are the Celexa side effects that were reported during clinical testing of the efficacy of Celexa for major depressive disorder.
Of the main selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRI’s, that are currently available in the United States, Celexa does seem to have somewhat fewer side effects. Paxil, for example, has more than three times as many side effects as Celexa.
Just because there are fewer side effects from Celexa doesn’t mean they are less painful.
A migraine headache is still a migraine headache, whether it is caused by Celexa, Paxil, Zoloft, or any other antidepressant. Sexual dysfunction is still sexual dysfunction. Nausea is still nausea. These are just a few of the Celexa side effects.

It’s easy to ‘gloss over’ this list of Celexa side effects, unless you’rethe one experiencing them.
Like reading in the newspaper, “Four People Die in Crash” - it doesn’t mean much unless you knew one of those four people.
Then it’s devistating.
It’s the same here. ‘Attempted suicide‘ doesn’t mean much unless you’rethe one who wants to die. (A Celexa side effect.)
‘Insomnia‘ is just a word, unless you’re the one who stays up night after night, in worry and anguish. (Another Celexa side effect.)
‘Agitation‘ has no impact, unless you’re the one screaming at your kids everyday. Then it has impact. (Yet another Celexa side effect.)
And what about ‘vomiting‘ or ‘impotence‘ or ‘painful menstruation‘?
They’re all Celexa side effects.
What about ‘migraine‘? How much emotional pain must a person be in – to put up with this kind of abuse?
It’s also important to understand the underlying causes that would lead you to such a painful place.
