Citalopram Manufacturer Change
75 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...

citalopram generic

Taking citalopram. An old manufacturer under the name of CAMB worked perfect. Pharmacy changed manufactures and the new one 'CIPL' is not working. Anxiety returned. I am told the pharmacy can't get CAMB anymore. Any thoughts? ## Hello, Leslie! How are you? Has there been any change? Which manufacturer your pharmacy carries, at any given time, can depend on who was offering the cheapest price at the time they needed to restock their supply. There can be minor fluctuations between generic medications, but they are so slight that most people adjust in a week, or so, once their body gets used to the one from the new manufacturer, according to the FDA. However, if you prefer the one manufactured by Camber Pharmaceuticals, a different pharmacy may carry it, you may want to ask aro...

do i take citalopram in the morning or evening
1 Reply RSS
I just need to know if I'm suppose to take citalopram in the morning or evening? ? I've been giving this by my doctor and forgot when they told me to take it and lost my paper work that had the information on it. Please I need to know. ## Hello, Monique! How are you? There is no specific time of day that it needs to be taken, you can do so whenever it is convenient for you, just remember to be consistent. It may cause some dizziness and drowsiness as side effects, as reported by the U.S. FDA, so some people may prefer to take it at night. Is there anything else I can help with?

Tired all the time with Citalpram
1 Reply RSS
Since I have been on this antidepressant/anxity med (or any antidepressants for that matter) I have been tired all the time. I am on 20mg. I have no desire to do anything and once I am home all I want to do is take naps. I have never been like this when I haven't taken anything. This is the only antidepressant that helps with my depression but I can't stand the way it makes me exhausted all the time!! ## Hello, Nickey! How are you? It could be that you need to try a lower dosage, there is a 10mg dose available. That way it may still help with your depression, without causing such fatigue. The FDA lists its other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. How long have you been taking it?

question about my citalopram
1 Reply RSS
Hello there my citalopram al doesn't have the 9 and 3 imprint on the one side all the one I see on the internet do is there a difference ## What are the markings on it? Citalopram is a generic, so it is actually manufactured by several different companies, to create market competition to help keep prices down, and each manufacturer must use different imprints on their tablets, according to FDA law. However, if you post back with the markings that are on it, I will be happy to double check for you to make sure you've received the correct medication. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes.

aurobindo citalopram

Hi, I just switched to CVS and my Citalopram smells funny. I didn't like it from the start and now I am getting headaches. May I ask, is it Gluten free? It is a white oval pill with A on one side and 07 on the other. Please help... ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Many medications do have a funny smell, but some manufacturers use a coating to prevent people from smelling it. As to the gluten, Aurobindo does use corn starch in this tablet, so there is a chance that it may be contaminated with gluten, if the plant the processed the corn starch also does wheat products. Does gluten usually give you headaches? Citalopram is classified by the FDA as an SSRI antidepressant and they lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, weight changes a...
