Citalopram is the generic equivalent for a drug named Celexa. The drug is in a class of antidepressants called SSRIs. It works by correcting a chemical imbalance in your brain. It will take 4-6 weeks to see any effect from it. While your husband is on it, he may experience side effects such as euphoria, nausea, vomiting, headache and decreased libido. He should NOT stop taking the medication abruptly without consulting his doctor as the withdrawal symptoms from the medication can be troublesome and "flu" like. If he misses a dose, take it as soon as he rememebers. If it is nearly time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume the original regimine. DO NOT double doses. If you have any other questions I'd be happy to answer them. Answered by Rossie Aquero 5 months ago.
It is the generic of ]Celexa. It is an antidepressant. It is an SSRI like Prozac. It can be used for depression and certain anxiety disorders. The most common side effects include: Diarrhea (3%), Nausea (7%), Sleepiness (8%), and Sexual dysfunction (8%). If you want him to take this, tell him that sexual dysfunction can sometimes mean delayed orgasm, which isn't a bad thing at all. Answered by Vanesa Limbaugh 5 months ago.

Hi, Yes, I take Citalopram myself. It is an antidepressant. The brand name is Celexa. I would definitely recommend it. It has fewer side-effects than most antidepressants and works by being a seratonin uptake inhibitor. That means that the Seratonin stays in the nerve pathways longer than usual. Now the reason this is important is that Seratonin manages anger, aggression, body temperature, mood, sleep, sexuality, appetite, and metabolism. It is also used to treat alcohol abuse, dementia, diabetic neuropathy, OCD, panic disorder and smoking cessation. The side effects include (11-21% of the time) nausea, dry mouth, sleepiness, insomnia, sweating, (4-8% of the time) tremors, diarrhea, abnormal ejaculation, indigestion, fatigue, anxiety ad anorexia, and (2-3% of the time) sinusitis, sexual dysfunction, abdominal pain, menstrual disorders agitation and decreaed libido.

Asked by Leanne Loa 5 months ago.
I am taking Citalopram Hydrobromide as well. I started on 20 mg, then to 30 mg, and now 40 mg, and then to one and a half dose. Which is 55mg daily. I have had problems with memory retention, but even before the Citalopram. My problem is that is has not reduced my stress level, nor benefited my depression. I sometimes think it is just a placebo. How the heck is a pill gonna change my mental status if my problems are not resolved? I worry about everything, and no pill is gonna change that. Answered by Anjelica Petersen 5 months ago.
