All of them are serious but warning about suicidal thoughts scare me the most to the point that I think about quitting taking my low dose of Celexa! What are your thoughts.
Side effects on any medication are written to protect the drug manufacturer from any lawsuits. They list absolutely any side effect that could take place or that they've heard has happened to any person who was taking their medication. What they don't list is the medical history of the person reporting the specific side effect. Are they on any other medication that's contraindicated to take with the medication your taking? Do they have any underlying medical conditions that would react negatively with the medication you're using? So, in conclusion I wouldn't worry about the side effects, to the point of stopping the medication, until you talk to your doctor. There is a reason your doctor prescribed the medication your taking and he's the one who knows your history and the other medications you're taking. If you are experiencing any of the side effects listed don't just stop taking the medication, call the doctor immediately!
