Xanax is a benzodiapine type drug which treats anxiety. For example, if you are having an anxiety attack, that is what you would take.
Celexa is a SSRI medication (this stands for Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor). It is the newest generation Prozac. You would be prescribed this kind of medication if you suffer from depression. SSRI medications can take a long time to begin to work, 2 weeks or even longer.
Xanax is in a class of drugs that is addictive but Celexa is not.
I hope this answers your question. : )
