‹< Celexa’s Pharmacology |

US brand name: Celexa
Generic name: citalopram

Comments

Its efficacy, lack of drug-drug interactions with anything involving CYP2D6 & CYP3A4/5 (i.e. half the meds on the planet) and, now that it’s available as a generic practically everywhere, cost, makes it one of, if not the most-prescribed antidepressant on the planet. It’s certainly the most-prescribed, and usually the first-prescribed for MDD wherever it’s available. Unless your symptoms scream something else (e.g. anhedonia and the inability to figure out how to go about getting out of bed, in which case Wellbutrin would probably work better), citalopram should be the first antidepressant you’re prescribed. Unless your insurance covers Lexapro and you’re not taking a drug that interacts with it, you may as well get the med that sometimes works a little faster and sucks a little less.

Currently the only SSRI-class antidepressant that is approved by the FDA for depression and nothing else.1 Although that may change as it is undergoing phase III tests to treat hot flashes in women who experience them frequently long after menopause or during breast cancer therapy. In the latter it manages to do so without messing with tamoxifen, which is critical.

Celexa was part of the cocktail Mouse was on when she went completely manic. The main culprit was Geodon. For an SSRI it wasn’t all that bad for her.

1 Luvox is approved to treat OCD and nothing else, making it the redheaded stepchild of SSRIs.

2 What has to be the most literal drug name on the planet.

3 Almost as literal as the Greek equivalent.

4 Finally, a drug company comes right out and says, "It's a mystery how these meds work." Hats off to Arcana Arzneimittel GmbH!

5 You'll have to talk to an Australian intellectual property lawyer to find out how an antidepressant and a Toyota are able to have the same brand name. Actually, I'd appreciate it if someone would talk to an intellectual property lawyer or somebody in Australia who knows why the hell the same brand name is being used for both products.

6 Looks like somebody really does consider Celexa to be a happy pill.

7 The intellectual property laws in South Asia are only slightly better than those in China.

8 Manufactured by, I shit ye not, Panacea Biotec. Whoever named that company has balls of titanium. Especially since most of their products deal with cancer, organ transplants, and assorted supplements. And their logo is easily mistaken for Lundbeck's.

9 Which also sounds like the name of a Cairo gay bar.

10 This could also be the name of a parody med.

11 I bet American drug companies would love it if they could name meds like they can in Greece.

12 Yeah, well wang you too, buddy! No, don't wang me, wang you! Wang you very much! According to Google Wàng (望) translates to "hope", so that's one more incidence of naming drug companies wish they could do in America.

13 Google translates this name to "Easy Tean", which sounds like a pr0n site.

14 I've also seen cytalopram used on academic, government, and pharmaceutical Polish sites. But I've also seen both the standard and Latin INNs, so there doesn't appear to be a consensus on what the generic name is in Poland.
