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. They told me it was the generic to Lexapro. Wrong!! I took this med, and the next day felt like a zombie. Nothing like Lexapro, and I won't take it again. Now my doc has to fight to put me back on my Lexapro. I feel this is rediculous to just change someones meds, saying its a generic, and having these horrible effects. ## Also I do not have depr...

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

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?
