Description

LP189874-3   Citalopram+Escitalopram
Citalopram (brand name Celexa) is used to treat depression and in a class of antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It is thought to work by increasing the amount of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain that helps maintain mental balance. Escitalopram (brand name Lexapro) is the (S)-stereoisomer (enantiomer) of citalopram, and contains the same active medication as citalopram. These two drugs act in the body in a very similar way. Escitalopram is used to treat depression and generalized anxiety disorder. It is also an SSRI. Children, teenagers, and young adults who take antidepressants to treat depression or other mental illnesses may be more likely to become suicidal those who do not.
