Citalopram Manufacturer Change
64 Replies RSS
Mail order changed my citalopram manufacturer from Amneal to Aurobindo. Have noticed side effect after the change. Should this be happening? Anyone els have this issue with manufacturer change? ## JC - I haven't been taking this med, but i wanted to share with you that it IS in fact possible to experience different effects between generic manufacturers. Even though ratios of active ingredients are supposed to be the same, the inert (inactive) ingredients are allowed to differ by a certain margin. Not to mention different manufacturing standards / facilities / etc. Sometimes if you mention this to your doctor or pharmacist, they can try to obtain the product from the other manufacturer, but this does not always work - it's all about supply chain and sometimes a specific manufactu...

Back on citalopram 20mg after 2-month break
8 Replies RSS
Hi, I recently started back up on Citalopram 20mg after being off for a couple months. I was sluggish in keeping up with my Psychiatrist appointments and ran out of refills and just a couple weeks ago received a new prescription. This drug has worked great for me before - I got things done, was motivated, had plenty to say to others, smiled often, experienced real emotion - when I was off, I noticed all of those things dwindling. Now that I'm back on (2 weeks in) I'm still not feeling that great. Since it's worked for me in the past it has to kick in at some point right? ## Hi Ryan, I am in the same situation. I tapered off and went without medication for 2 months. My anxiety started to resurface and I'm currently back on 10mg. This is day 7 am I'm experiencing the s...

Side effects are changing from 10mg to 20mg?
1 Reply RSS
I have been on Citalopram for a few years, on 30 mg at most but in the last year have been weaned down to 10mg (could not go any lower or come off completely due to side effects). Recently I have had problems acquiring my monthly pack of 10mg and so found an old pack of 20mg to tide me over until I can get my usual 10mg. Since taking the 20 I have been having dizziness and nausea for almost a week - spells in work where I feel as if I might black out and generally feeling off balance - Is this normal? I don't remember experiencing such effects when I switched from 10 upwards originally, just the first time I ever took them.... Can anyone give any advice? ## Yes, any time you raise the dosage, it is possible to experience side effects, even if you didn't experience them before, b...

citalopram with polyethylene glycol 4000 or better
Post a Reply
Hello I'm Doug. I'm looking for a manufacturer of citalopram 20 mg that has polyethylene glycol 4000 or better in it ! Would love to try the 8000.... Drs or pharmacist don't have the time nor the resources to figure it out grrrr... Caraco doesn't make it anymore... And I have researched it myself for a while now!!!! I have also found that apotex doesn't make it any more also. grrrr :-P would love some help or suggest a data base that's up to date! My brain doesn't work the same and I am struggling to figure this out! Polyethylene glycol just helps me to absorb the citalopram and I function better! Thanks :-D

i p 53 what is this medication used for
3 Replies RSS
What else does the Ip53 contain and what is the benefits? ## Pink oval pill with Ip53 is 20 mg Citalopram (Brand Name Xanax) It is used to treat anxiety, stress, depression. {editor's note: struck out the incorrect brand name stated} ## Thats not true. The medicine in xanax is alprazolam, it is a benzodiazepine. The oval pink pill w ip53 on it is an ssri antidepressant ## Michelle is correct about the incorrect brand name and our editors have noted that in the original post. Just to clear up any confusion - the tablet being described is in fact Citalopram 20mg manufactured by Amneal pharmaceuticals. NDC # 65162-053. It is indeed classified as an SSRI antidepressant.

I have some of what i think to be Celexa and i cant find the picture of it. It is oval white in color and reads c40 with what looks to be a chevron on the back of it. Can you please tell me if these are Celexa. ## Hello, Whibbles! How are you? Yes, the tablet with the Cobalt logo and C40 is now manufactured by Apotex and they list it as containing 40mgs of Citalopram. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

Has anyone had a blip while regularly taking their correct dosage?
1 Reply RSS
I have been on citalopram 20mg since april 2014 For about a week now my anxiety has returned , very similar to the initial side effects i experienced over the first couple of weeks of taking it. Could it be a sign my dose is too high or need to increase it - something i dont really want to do. Also does anyone else experience skin sensations - very difficult to describe but its like slight tingling and a feeling of cold? ## Hello, Carolem! How are you feeling? The skin sensations can be normal and many medications can cause them as side effects. The one I'm on for my blood pressure causes it on my head, anytime I'm in the sun, which is a very strange experience. LOL If you're anxiety has returned, it most likely means that you need a dosage increase. The FDA lists the other ...

Oval Shape White Pill C 40
2 Replies RSS
oval white pill one side has c 40 other side has looks like an arrow ## Hi Linda, From what I could gather, I strongly believe that this pill is Citalopram (40 mg). The primary reason I don't know for certain is because I haven't located a photo of the pill to verify the arrow-like marking on the back. However the imprint "C 40" on a white oval pill is identified as Citalopram (40 mg). The manufacturer of this pill is Cobalt Laboratories. You may want to consider contacting them through the link below to verify the marking on the back of the pill: Additional information about Citalopram can be found in the link below: I hope this helps! ## what is this pill (arrow on one side and c 40 on the other) used for? someone dropped one on my bathroom floor

Hi I need some advise quickly be for I take my tabs my doc said she was going up my dosage today and she ended up giving me 20mg and pack of 10 mg of citalopram I was already on 10 does it mean I'm on 30 mg now every day x ## Hello, Annie! How are you? I would assume so, but only your doctor can give you a definitive answer. The FDA classifies this medication as an SSRI antidepressant and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?
