      I take a high dose of lexapro, another SSRI, and I have had no problem with it. I have been on for 9 years. I am wondering if doctors might want to try another kind of SSRI then?

        You should look into it, especially since Lexapro is very closely related to Celexa.

            If you google "difference between celexa and lexapro" you will find that the side effects are different --- it is an interesting comparison.

            If you have concerns, by all means discuss them with the ordering physician.
