20 CELEXA 10 LEXAPRO...What would be the best geared toward more anxiety less depression without using Xanax (alprazolam) or klonopin daily. HELP!!
Personal chemistry. It really depends on your personal chemistry. Different people react differently to each medication. There are some common side effects (like weight gain) but those only happen in a percentage of the population. Work with your Dr to find which medication is a best fit for you.
Can ssri meds for anxiety depression cause cardiac problems? If do which 1s can. Prozac. Celexa. Xanax (alprazolam).
Prologed QT. Can be caused by either Prozac (fluoxetine) or celexa. Both of these meds have been used exstensively for >10yrs. It has only recently come to light that some persons can devreloped prolonged qt on their ekg which can predispose them to life threatening arrythmias. Celexa has gotten a black box warning. Xanax/benzodiazipine withdrawl can cause tachy arrythmias and other life threatening issues. Read more...

Call her to ask! I'm hoping she know about all the medications you take - if not - she needs to so she can give you the best and safest care. That type of security might even help your 24/7 worries. These drugs in combo can increase side effects but as long as you watch carefully and report things to her and know what to watch for, it should be ok. Consider CBT for skills to manage anxiety too!
