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...

pink pill with ip 53

What kind of pill is this? And is it something to worry about? ## Hello, Carrie! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 20mgs of Citalopram. The FDA classifies this medication as an SSRI antidepressant. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. So no, it's nothing dangerous, but it does require a doctor's prescription. Is there anything else I can help with?

Starting back on Citalopram, support needed
5 Replies RSS
Hi :) I took 20 mg. of citalopram from 2006 until this past fall of 2014, for lingering postpartum/anxiety/insomnia. The drug worked wonders for me and I was afraid to come off of it until last year. Insomnia is something I'm terrified of, due to my experience with it. We had a difficult winter, I am a single mom, who does not love her work (I work part time cleaning houses in order to keep a flexible schedule for my daughter) but it has it's pros and I don't know what else interests me for work at the moment. Then I had a month of very stressful circumstances, one after another, which resulted in some anxiety/adrenalin/chest pain (ekg ruled out any problems). My doctor suggested I go back on citalopram and asked if I had a problem with it. I'd been feeling down as well ...

Football shaped pill, orange, 20, 1010 ## Can you tell me what my daughter was given when she went to emerg when she was because she thought she had bugs crawling in her body She was only 28 when she died. ## So sorry for your loss this pill is an antidepressant called Citalopram hydrobromide. 1010 20 oval orange If in fact she was suffering like you say at ER of this delusion of bugs inside her.. this antidepressant medicine should have never been given to stop acute delusions. Sounds like she needed immediate relief and an antipsychotic or anti anxiety medicine for acute issues should have been given. sue ass off the ER. ## @ michele lanteigne I too am so very sorry for your loss. I can confirm that the pill in question is indeed Citalopram hydrobromide (20 mg); which belongs to the d...

Are My Citalopram (Celexa) Withdrawal Symptoms Normal?
Post a Reply
Hi, I have been on 20mg of Citalopram (Celexa) for a year and starting to come off them. I was taking 2 x 10 mg tablets a day. So I started by alternating 2x10mg one day followed by 1x10mg the next day and alternating for a few weeks. Well that was the plan, but I felt no side effects after 3 days so figured I could go down to 10mg a day. I was on 10mg a day for about 3 days and had no withdrawal symptoms, so again figured I had this tapering stuff sorted and then decided to go to 10mg every other day. Then it hit me, I felt like I had the flu... which is my main question, people talk about side effect symptoms like brain zaps and nausea, I havent had any of those. But I feel achy and lethargic and cannot sleep. But also have a really bad cough. I have never seen anyone mention a cough wit

sulfa drugs allergy
1 Reply RSS
Is citalopram a sulfa drug? I just started this, and I'm starting to feel the tingling and burning in my hands. I'm allergic to sulfa. ## Hello, Bob! How are you? No, this is not a sulfonamide. Citalopram is classified by the FDA as an SSRI antidepressant. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache and weight gain. However, it is known that if you're allergic to one medication, there is a definite risk that you will also be allergic to others. Did you experience any other adverse effects?

citalopram for insomnia
1 Reply RSS
For about 3 to 4 weeks now I have been having trouble sleeping. I wake in the middle of the night and my mind starts going and I have terrible trouble shutting back down. My mind says, "what time is it? I need to get back to sleep", "I have to work in the morning" and on and on. Consumed with the thought of sleep I sometimes fail to go back to sleep. sometimes I do but it takes 2 hours. I have had this issue since I was a child but it only manifests itself every 6 months to a year or maybe even less. But lately its been, like I said, a couple of months with this. So I became desperate for relief. I went to my GP and she prescribed citalopram. Her diagnosis was anxiety. I suppose waking in the middle of the night and having a racing mind is a sort of anxiety thing. Unders...
