A 28-year-old male asked:
If you go from 10mg celexa (citalopram) to 20mg will side effects differ? any experience with patients who say they feel worse on 10mg and better on 20mg?

Celexa (citalopram): Everyone's brain and body processes meds differently, 10 and 20 mg are low doses of Celexa (citalopram) not to be worried about. If a lower dose works fine no need to increase it unless there are residual symptoms.
