My Citalopram conundrum..any advice would be so much appreciated.
I have been a depressive all my life, so were my parents and parents before them. Ive also always suffered from insomnia for as long as I have lived, even as a baby I have been told that I never napped and would only sleep for a few hours nightly. In my youth I saw therapists and smoked cannabis which mostly kept me in check. After the suicide of my dearest friend in our late teens things got really bad, I lost any drive to get out of bed, I never left the house, i never ate or slept, I finally found help in Zopiclone and Lorazepam, I was finally able to sleep every night and leave the house without having anxiety attacks. I went on like this for a while, doing ok, I started studying and working and fell in love, Life was good for a while, my relationship had its ups and downs and at ti...

HBR just designated the type of drug salt. Some of the most common side effects include: drowsiness, nausea, dry mouth and sweating. ## They just replaced my Lexapro 10 milg, to the same drug Citalopram 20 mills. They told me it was the generic to Lexapro. Wrong!! I took this med, and the next day felt like a zombie. Nothing like Lexapro, and I won't take it again.

small round peach pill one side c other blank
Found pill on floor and no idea what it is. Round peach in color one side has a "c" and the other side is blank ## It is a 10mg citalopram ## Just to confirm for others, this is a 10mg Citalopram tablet, manufactured by Caraco. And for additional verification, the National Drug Code is 57664-0507. To help with any discrepancies, the color of the tablet is also depicted as orange in the product description. Although it does look like a pale peach color in all the images I'm seeing. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Citalopram Details Hope this helps!

Citalopram Manufacturer Change
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...

Not all Citalopram generics the same
I have been on Citalopram for two years but recently switched my prescription from Walgreens to Target (for convenience). I discovered that these retailers get their Citalopram from different manufacturers (the pills look entirely different, for one; and, the mfr. is also listed on the label). Within a few weeks it was obvious that the new prescription wasn't doing as good as job. So, I switched back (to Walgreens) and I'm glad I did. Sure enough, I've been feeling better again. Lesson: You never kjnow: your body may respond better to one manufacturer's generic than another. I had read this was possible, and it ended up being true in this case for me. ## HI! I'm glad you were able to switch back to the one that worked better for you. They may not always get theirs fr...
