citalopram hbr 20 mg tablet

pink oval antidpressant ## I recently received a refill from my mail order pharmacy for Citalopram HBR tablets, 20 mg. The first prescription I had were pink oval tablets, but this next one was round white tablets, the size of a 325mg bayer aspirin. Embossed on the tablet, from what I can make out is, WP1 3177. Is the same type of drug or could it be the wrong prescription?? ## This is the same medication and same dosage, just made by a different company that your last fill. Many pharmacies end up switching which one they carry according to what company had the cheapest available when they needed to restock. Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and sweating. ## I was taken off lexapro and put on citalopram hbr 20mg. After being on the generic antid...

Citalopram and Phentermine

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 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...

Citalopram oily greasy skin

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. ## I came off citalopram in June '17 and since then I'...

Citalopram Side Effects and Withdrawal

I was on Citalopram from August 2017 to June 2018. I decided to taper off of them because I didn’t like how I felt on them. I have had a pill for just over 5 weeks now. While on the medicine, I was definitely less panicked. However, I had a pretty constant feeling of being out of it, like being drugged or spaced out. I had this before I started the medicine so I was hoping it would help. The other really bad symptom I had was this weird dizziness and vertigo. I was dizzy before I started, but a few weeks in I remember I had rapid feeling in my head before bed like my head was moving. This turned into an awful vertigo sensation that hits hard when I lay down. It feels like I’m spinning or my body parts are moving or being pulled, and makes it hard to sleep sometimes. Anyway, ...
