Citalopram Overview

Citalopram (brand names: Celexa, Cipramil and others) is an antidepressant drug of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class. It has U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval to treat major depression,[2] which it received in 1998,[3] and is prescribed off-label for other conditions.

Citalopram Hbr 20 Mg Tab
2 Replies RSS
Could citalopram Hbr 20 mg tab cause itching of the skin on arms, head and face? Warning on bottle mentions "avoid prolonged sunlight". ## Hi Vickie, If it says to avoid prolonged sunlight, the medication probably causes some sort of Photosensitivity. Photosensitivity is a skin reaction (i.e. rash) that occurs after exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or an artificial light source. This could explain the very symptoms you're describing. I do also want to note that itching, rashes, swelling, hives or blisters, are all listed as severe side effects of Citalopram; in which case it would probably be best to let your doctor know about this as soon as possible. Ref: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a699001.html#side-effects I hope this information helps! ## Wh...

Citalopram Manufacturer Change
80 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...

Side effects are changing from 10mg to 20mg?
2 Replies RSS
I have been on Citalopram for a few years, on 30 mg at most but in the last year have been weaned down to 10mg (could not go any lower or come off completely due to side effects). Recently I have had problems acquiring my monthly pack of 10mg and so found an old pack of 20mg to tide me over until I can get my usual 10mg. Since taking the 20 I have been having dizziness and nausea for almost a week - spells in work where I feel as if I might black out and generally feeling off balance - Is this normal? I don't remember experiencing such effects when I switched from 10 upwards originally, just the first time I ever took them.... Can anyone give any advice? ## Yes, any time you raise the dosage, it is possible to experience side effects, even if you didn't experience them before, b...

ip53 peach pill oval
1 Reply RSS
Trying to determine what this pill is. It is oval and peach. One side has a line down the middle with the markings ip53. ## This tablet is manufactured by Amneal Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 20mgs of Citalopram, which is an SSRI antidepressant. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

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 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...
