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...

Can I take citalopram 40mg and alprazolam .25mgbatbrje same time ## Hello, Montie! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. The FDA warns that Alprazolam carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and drowsiness. Is there anything else I can help with?

2 Replies RSS
Can the use of Depramil or Citalopram lead to tinnitus? ## Hello, Lestie! How are you? Yes, that can be a side effect of this medication, as reported by the U.S. FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. How long have you been taking it? If it's been over 4 to 5 weeks and you're still experiencing it, you may need to switch to a different medication, with your doctor's approval. ## Hello there and thank you for your reply. Yes I have been taking it for some 6 months now (Depramil), though I understand that Depramil is a generic. When I started I took Auro Citalopram and I did not experience any bad side effects. Just recently (say 4 weeks or so) I have had 'vague' tinnitus. It is a quiet hum that I tend to forget when I am c...

Hello I'm Doug. I'm looking for a manufacturer of citalopram 20 mg that has polyethylene glycol 4000 or better in it ! Would love to try the 8000.... Drs or pharmacist don't have the time nor the resources to figure it out grrrr... Caraco doesn't make it anymore... And I have researched it myself for a while now!!!! I have also found that apotex doesn't make it any more also. grrrr :-P would love some help or suggest a data base that's up to date! My brain doesn't work the same and I am struggling to figure this out! Polyethylene glycol just helps me to absorb the citalopram and I function better! Thanks :-D ## Hi Doug, I have been taking Citalopram manufactured by Caraco for close to a year now. I was on name brand Celexa for 16 years before finding an off b...
