What are these pills for? It's pink with 9 0 on one side, the other side has the letter A on it. HELP! ## Hello, Domino! How are you? The marking is actually intended to be A 06, this tablet is manufactured by Aurobindo Pharma and they list it as containing 20mgs of Citalopram. Citalopram is classified by the FDA as being an SSRI antidepressant and the typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, weight changes, mood swings and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you so much you have helped me a great deal. ## You're very welcome! Are there any other questions or concerns?

Some of the common side effects may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and weight changes. Has this medication been prescribed for you? ## Hi - I am on 30mg of citolapram & have been for over 5weeks having started at 20mg. My only symptom is achy ankles, feet & calves.

I tried exercise & stretching, but it's still there. Also the last few days feel the urge like I have extra energy that needs to be released. I am seeing...

Is Citalopram A Narcotic
4 Replies RSS
My doctor recently put me on citalopram. I lost my appetite and feel exhausted with this pill. Is this a side effect? ## Citalopram is not a narcotic, it is an SSRI antidepressant. And yes, those can be side effects, while your body is adjusting to the medication, you may also experience nausea and dry mouth. It usually takes about 4 to 6 weeks for the medication to reach its full effects and then the side effects should slowly start to taper off. However, if you don't experience any improvement, you should contact your doctor. Are there any other questions? ## Will citaprolam make me gain weight...also im interesred in all news about incivek and all hep c news ## How long does citalopram remain active in your body ## Is Citalopram Hydrobromide perscribed for menopause patients?

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.

Has anyone had a blip while regularly taking their correct dosage?
Post a Reply
I have been on citalopram 20mg since april 2014 For about a week now my anxiety has returned , very similar to the initial side effects i experienced over the first couple of weeks of taking it. Could it be a sign my dose is too high or need to increase it - something i dont really want to do. Also does anyone else experience skin sensations - very difficult to describe but its like slight tingling and a feeling of cold?

Citalopram Manufacturer Change
35 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...

Mood swings

I've been on 20mg Citalopram for almost 6 weeks now and don't feel any better, of anything I'm more depressed and anxious than I was before. My GP has talked about increasing the dose but I don't know wether it's the Citalopram, making me worse or if the dosage isn't strong enough. Any thoughts plaeas? ## Too many physicians don't take side effects seriously, and rather than stopping the antidepressant, increase the dose. A major side effect of all antidepressants is a deeper depression. Although I'm a layman, I've been through enough therapy and antidepressants to know that what your doctor is doing is wrong. For one thing, psychiatrists should be prescribing antidepressants, not general practitioners. My advice is not to increase the dose and to see...
