Celexa (citalopram) is an antidepressant used to treat a range of psychiatric disorders. It is in the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) class of drugs, one of the most widely-used class of antidepressants in the world, and generally considered safer and more effective than traditional antidepressants.
This medication is known by quite a few other brand names, including Cipramil, Celapram, Ciprapine, Talam, Zetalo, and many others.
What to Expect from Celexa
Celexa comes in tablets, which are typically taken once per day. Some patients may start feeling effects a few days after starting treatment, but it takes about 4 weeks for full benefits to be seen. The medication is helpful in alleviating symptoms in a wide range of mental conditions:

Certain medical conditions increase the likelihood that side effects will be experienced, and the severity of them, which can be dangerous. Discuss risks with a doctor before taking Celexa if there is a history of:
This medication can interact with other medications---including those of the over-the-counter variety and recreational drugs---and can cause potentially fatal interactions. Of greatest concern are any drugs that suppress or slow breathing, such as opiod painkillers, and any drugs that cause sleepiness, such as sleeping pills or muscle relaxers. Taking other antidepressants also poses a serious risk. Always check with a doctor or pharmacist before mixing medications while taking Celexa, or any SSRI.
Celexa is known to be harmful to unborn or nursing babies and should be avoided if pregnant or breastfeeding.
