Probably: Equal but Celexa at40mg carries a black box cardiac warning so in the long run Prozac (fluoxetine) is probably safer.

It depends: Both medis are in the same class, so side effect profiles are similar. Both are good agents for depression and anxiety. However individual patient respond to meds differently. Hope this helps.
