14 Replies RSS
i just stared takinh these 3 days ago, i have noticed they make me tired, shaky, dry mouth,clumsy. somewhat disorented, forgetful, i was told there for anxiety, i was on effexor, and prozac but she pelaced those wth the citalopram hbr 20 mg. are these symptoms normal and will they go away in time???? thank you. ## Citalopram is an antidepressant, that is also used to treat several other disorders, including anxiety. And yes, these side effects are all normal symptoms that can occur when you start taking it. They should start to taper off after a few weeks, when your body adjusts to the new medication. If they don't or get more intense, you will need to speak to your doctor. You can read more on this medication here: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## IAM A REALLY OUT GOI...

can i just stop taking citalopram
1 Reply RSS
I have been on citalopram 10mg for 2 months. The last few weeks I have been getting tremor spasms in my left arm and really bad night sweats.. Can I just stop citalopram safely? I have had blood tests 2 days ago and all is ok. ## A slow taper is usually best, stopping abruptly may cause withdrawal effects, which the NIH lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, rebound depression, anxiety, and diarrhea. Are you on any other medications?

Citalopram oily greasy skin
Post a Reply
I was on Citalopram for over a year and I came off it in November 2016. I feel so much better not being on it and that I am not zombie like anymore and not to mention the weight gain. Now it is March and I have the worst oily skin ever. It's literally all over my face and it is making my hair so greasy and this isn't a good look. I have tried special soap bars and greasy hair shampoo but it just simple keeps coming back. It's been happening for a few months now and it's really getting on my nerves. Can anyone advise me on this and if anyone else has had a similar experience? I am guessing it is to do with hormones setting back down but how long will it go on for? I'm a 30 year old male. Thanks in advance.

Citalopram Manufacturer Change
77 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...

Manufacturers of Citalopram and their differences
1 Reply RSS
Is a Citalopram HBR 40 mg white oblong/oval tablet with '0 7' on one side and an 'A' on the other the same as a smaller pink oblong/oval 40mg tablet with '0 6' on one side and an 'A' on the other side? Please respond ASAP! Thank you... ## The tablet with the A 06 marking contains 20mgs of Citalopram, the tablet with the A 07 marking is listed as containing 40mgs of Citalpram, both of which are manufactured by Aurbindo Pharma. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

Citalopram 20 Mg Vs Lexapro
2 Replies RSS
My doctor just switched me from Lexapro 20 mg to Citalopram 20 mg for cost reasons as I do not have coverage. It's only been a week and I'm feeling weepy at the drop of a hat...what is the difference in the drug and am I on the right "switch over" dosage? Thanks. ML ## Both of these medications are manufactured by Forest Pharmaceuticals, Inc.. However Lexapro is noted by a number of sources to be a cleaner, improved version of Citalopram. It is the active isomer of racemic Citalopram. Many user reviews I've come across report that Citalopram compared to Lexapro just makes them feel tired and "drugged", per say; while Lexapro allows you to be more mobile. Do you feel like this is a true statement, based on the equal dose you've been taking? Additional info...

Can cilift contribute to erectile disfunction (libido) and failure to reach climax. ## Cilift is not known to be manufactured in the US, so it is difficult to gather abundant information on the drug. However, I did find that Citalopram is reported to be an ingredient of Cilift in South Africa. Citalopram can have a number of adverse effects: Fatigue, drowsiness, dry mouth, increased sweating (hyperhidrosis), trembling, headache, dizziness, sleep disturbances, insomnia, cardiac arrhythmia, hallucinations, blood pressure changes, nausea and/or vomiting, diarrhea, heightened anorgasmia in females, impotence and Ejaculatory Problems in Males.

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?
