Cipramil (Citalopram, Celexa, Citrol)

Cipramil is an antidepressant drug that is often prescribed to treat depression and other mood disorders. Cipramil (also known by the names citalopram, Celexa, Citrol) is an SSRI, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, which means that it boosts the levels of the chemical serotonin in the brain to improve mood. Cipramil also helps prevent nerve cells from reabsorbing the serotonin, which helps maintain improved mood for a longer period of time. Cipramil can take as long as four weeks to be fully effective in managing symptoms. Cipramil may also be prescribed to manage panic disorders, social phobias, eating disorders, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder.

I wasn't on this treatment for very long maybe only for 2 weeks. I had severe side effects from Citalopram such as panic attacks. 1/17/2012 at 06:59 PM

Citalopram has been very successful at keeping me on an even keel as primary biliary cirrhosis causes symptoms of depression. I did stop it at one point but then pain became a significant problem and was advised by the doctor to restart it as it was a preferred option to pain killers. I also take amitriptyline at night 10mg for sleep.6/4/2011 at 05:54 AM
