My doctor prescribed this for me yesterday to tame my anxiety - took my first 10mg tab this morning. Hopefully there won’t be too many (or any) side effects and if so, minimal. Is this the same as Lexapro? Anyone else have experience with this stuff?
I believe it is. I don’t have any personal experience with it, however the girl I am seeing is on it and it works very well for her. She does not have any side effects from it, but everyone is different. Unfortunetly, trial and error is the only way to know if it will help you. I hope it does.
Yes, I just checked and it is the same. This med is quite potent, so if you find it at all stimulating, you can cut it down to 5mg. and then titrate up from there. It is supposed to work great for anxiety with a low side effect profile. Good luck!!
See this thread where I outlined the difference and similarities between Lexapro and Celexa:
Cipramil seems to be well-tolerated by most people.
