I took Celexa for more than 10 years. It was prescribed by my cardiologist and was maintained by my MD. I drank while on it and had several bad experiences. I asked to be taken off and my MD just told me to stop. This was another bad experience. This was about six years ago. I suffered with what is called adjustment disorder two years ago and was on Paxil for a year and then weaned off by a psychiatrist. However, still I am suffering daily with mild depression despite bi-weekly psychologist visits. I am wondering could I have suffered brain damage due to Celexa. Articles I am reading online concerning to me the above. Should I look into a medicine for my current depression?
