Citalopram 20 Mg Is It Gluten Free
It says on their website and several others that it is gluten free. However I experienced the same problem you did I would take it and get really sick like a sprue out break. They say they are gluten free but I am no longer taking my Citalopram 20mg ## It depends on who the manufacturer and since this is a generic, there are several different companies that make it. Are there any markings on the tablets you need information on? ## It is manufactured by Aurobindo Pharmaceuticals. I am gluten intolerant. Every time I take it I have elevated pulse rate just as I do when I accidentally have gluten. I'm trying to taper off and having withdrawal,don't like the idea of possibly gluttening myself.

Switched from effexor(venlafaxine) to celexa (citalopram)
Hi....Here's the short version of my story. I was on effexor for 13 years, started out at 37.5mg for probably 9 years and had absolutely No problems with anxiety. I was so good that I decided to stop taking it. Felt great for 3 months then I had a terrible attack in the middle of the night. Went to doc she put me back on and all said and done was up to 225mg to make me feel "normal". From there I stayed on that dose until about 6 weeks ago. Again I woke up in the middle of the night with a panic attack. Unfortunately they don't just stop, they go on for days and weeks! I immediately went to my doc and she upped me to 300mg of effexor, after a couple weeks we decided it just wasn't working anymore. We chose citalopram as the next option because my brother has had succ...

Citalopram Manufacturer Change
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...

scared of meds
I have been prescribed celexa 20mg .after I had bad anxiety on effexor xr .i dont like taking meds as it is. I was wondering if I should expect the same reaction to celexa as effexor .i know everyone is different and IV read good and bad reviews on celexa. ## Hello, Denise! How are you? Celexa contains the active ingredient Citalopram, which is an SSRi antidepressant, so it's in a different class than the Effexor was, it was an SNRI. Anxiety can sometimes worsen for the first 3 weeks, while your body is adjusting to the medication, but it should improve after that. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you .so will it be alright to take my xanax with celexa if I have an anxiety attack? You hav...
