Celexa, a brand-name form for citalopram,
is a prescription medication used to treat depression. Celexa belongs to a group of drugs
called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, which change the levels of certain chemicals
in the brain to maintain mental stability. This medication comes in tablet and liquid
forms. It is usually taken once a day, with or without food. Common side effects of Celexa
include nausea, sexual problems, and dry mouth. Celexa can cause dizziness. Do not drive or
operate heavy machinery until you know how Celexa affects you. Take this medication only
if it is prescribed for you by health care provider. For RxWiki, I’m Trey Robinson.
