Cardiophobia: I understand your distress. Celexa is a Medication for Depression, it a can have cardiac side effects. Believe in WONDER of 3 Billion muscle cells in your Heart working together to pump Blood with Oxygen to all parts of body and brain since you were born. Speak that you are the Captain of your life with “Clean lipids and no risk factors”, NOT Victim of Cardiophobia. See Psychiatrist for Therapy
