    Switching from Lexapro to Celexa?

    Has anyone had success in treating anxiety from switching from 10mg Lexapro to 20mg Celexa? The lexapro just didn't work for me. My doctor just started me on 20mg Celexa bc I had great success with it years ago. Question is if the drugs are very similar why would one work over the other?
