I doubt their diagnosis. This is more than depression. Yes, I am on Xanax as well but that's as needed and I'm a premed full time student do I can't be a zombie during that. How can I object a doctors diagnosis and medication? What do I do to prevent myself from going any further. I've never had fully suicidal thoughts until I started taking the Celexa last week. I feel like I'm drowning in my own body.

You have to advocate for yourself. If you really think the doctor diagnosed you wrong, go see another doctor. If you're having suicidal thoughts as a side effect of the medication, you absolutely need to stop that medication, and I can't believe a doctor wouldn't have the same opinion. Don't just stop the medicine cold turkey, though; call your doctor, tell him that you started having suicidal thoughts when you started the medication, and he should help you taper off safely.
