Dr has prescribe me this medication again, and i will not be able to get the medication till 2 weeks, i do have left over medication, can i use expire citalopram that exp. on 4/10/16? ## This medication does not become toxic, or dangerous after its expiration date, but it may start to lose some efficacy and not work as well for you. However, you can try taking it, if your doctor approves. Have you asked them about it? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes.

Tired all the time with Citalpram
Post a Reply
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!!

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...

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.

Negative experience with citalopram?
1 Reply RSS
I was on citalopram for nearly a year. They seemed to be working just fine for a while and then I noticed a gradual yet shocking change in my thinking and feeling. I had severe mood swings that could last for hours, days or weeks. I though more and more about killing myself and that no one around me understood. It caused havoc on my relationships, romantic and otherwise. I couldn't see how hard people were trying to help me. I was completely in my own world, going out and abusing alcohol and waking up the next day in someone's bed who I though would give me the world. The next week if grow tired of them and move on to the next. It finally got to the point where I felt utterly alone and I tried to take my life. Luckily I failed, but this forced me to really look at myself and wha...

Cilift With Alcohol
3 Replies RSS
Cilift + alcohol = Madness and unacceptable biopolar behaviour. My husband was diagnosed with chronic depression and anxiety. He is also a alcoholic. Will not stop drinking or even cut down.Obviously the madication is not working!!!! My 3 boys and I have suffered for 13years with this madness and it is getting worse. He drinks six normal beers every night and more if he can get his hands on it. He is has no feelings of responsibility or emotion once he is on a roll and all of us are in the wrong?????? I do not drink. My husband has a lifelong track record of drug and alcohol abuse hence the depression and anxiety which has kicked in at the age of 40 years. What are we to do, he spirals out especially if he does not take the cylift on a regular basis....I cannot always track this as he c...

atrial fibrillation started after 2 weeks of Citalopram
1 Reply RSS
I'm on 10 mg but started experiencing mild fibrillation, slightly depressed and a feeling of exhaustion has been increasing over the last 2 years, but my G.P determined it is depression which I have had before in my life at times. Always recover. I'm a 78 year old woman. I take Citalopram 10mg each morning....no increase in energy; getting worse. Weakness is increasing over time...not improved on Citalopram. ## Hello, Mary! How are you? You may need a dosage adjustment, or to try a different medication, not every drug works for everyone that tries it, unfortunately. How long have you been taking it? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes.

Citalopram Manufacturer Change
74 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...
