Citalopram Manufacturer Change
96 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...

citalopram pill appearance
1 Reply RSS
I got a temporary citalopram script from CVS and the pills were white. Then I received another script from express scripts & the pills are pink. Why the difference? ## What are the markings on them? Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! The color is actually irrelevant and is entirely up to the manufacturer's whit and whim. Since this is a generic medication, it is manufactured by several different companies, so the color, shape, size and markings may vary. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes.

Citalopram and Phentermine
4 Replies RSS
I've been taking Citalopram for a week now, so far so good except for feeling a little tired but hoping it will go away. I want to continue with my weight loss program taking a half of 37ml of phentermine so I can get the energy I need in the morning at the gym, don't want to feel too anxious. Has anyone experienced any interactions or any weird side effects with this combination? Thank you so much. ## Hi Andrea, Based on my research, there is an interaction listed between these two medications; which states the following: "GENERALLY AVOID: Several case reports suggest that serotonin reuptake inhibitors may potentiate the pharmacologic response to sympathomimetic agents. The exact mechanism of interaction is unclear. In one case report, a patient experienced jitteriness, rac...

Citalopram 40 mg to 20 mg
1 Reply RSS
My boyfriend has been taking Citalopram HND 40 mg for about 2 years and the doctor refilled it for 20 mg. No discussion on the change amount was made. Plus the pills look completely different. ## Did he ask his doctor about the change? It might have been a mistake. The FDA warns that this medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and mood changes. Sometimes, such issues are just due to an honest mistake, because doctors tend to be so very busy.

Are My Citalopram (Celexa) Withdrawal Symptoms Normal?
2 Replies RSS
Hi, I have been on 20mg of Citalopram (Celexa) for a year and starting to come off them. I was taking 2 x 10 mg tablets a day. So I started by alternating 2x10mg one day followed by 1x10mg the next day and alternating for a few weeks. Well that was the plan, but I felt no side effects after 3 days so figured I could go down to 10mg a day. I was on 10mg a day for about 3 days and had no withdrawal symptoms, so again figured I had this tapering stuff sorted and then decided to go to 10mg every other day. Then it hit me, I felt like I had the flu... which is my main question, people talk about side effect symptoms like brain zaps and nausea, I havent had any of those. But I feel achy and lethargic and cannot sleep. But also have a really bad cough. I have never seen anyone mention a cough ...
