Celexa or Flourinef?

AntiSpam: orange
From: Jessie


I have had pre-syncope for 13+ years, am now 27. I was being treated with Flourinef & K-Dur. Then 4 years ago, I stopped taking the medicine because we wanted children. I now have children and went back to the cardiologist today. He is putting me on Celexa, an antidepressant. I am not anxious or depressed and really don't want to be on depression medication. The Flourinef and K-Dur were working before. Does anyone know anything about these meds or why they would be switching me?
