Citalopram (citalopram hydrobromide) is prescribed for the treatment of depression and panic disorder. It belongs to a class of antidepressant medicines called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI). These medicines increase the levels of serotonin in the brain. Disturbances in the serotonin system in the brain are considered to be an important factor in the development of depression and related illnesses.
SSRIs work by preventing serotonin from being reabsorbed back into the nerve cells in the brain. This helps prolong the mood-lightening effect of any released serotonin. In this way, citalopram helps relieve depression, panic, and fear.


Take Citalopram according to the doctor’s prescription instructions. The generally accepted dosage is:
  • For the treatment of depression – 20 mg per day. The doctor may increase the dosage up to 40 mg per day.
  • For the treatment of panic disorder – an initial dosage of 10 mg per day for the first week of treatment, after which the dosage will be increased to 20 mg per day. The doctor may increase the dosage up to 40 mg per day.
  • For people above the age of 65 or patients with liver function disorders, a reduced dosage is normally used.
Citalopram should be taken once a day, with or without food. The tablet should be swallowed with some water.
If a higher dose has been accidentally taken, it can cause symptoms such as convulsions, change in heart rhythm, sleepiness, loss of consciousness, vomiting, tremors, a change in blood pressure, nausea, or serotonin syndrome. In such an event, or if a child has accidentally swallowed the medicine, immediately refer to a doctor or proceed to a hospital emergency room and take the package of the medicine with.

Citalopram is a type of antidepressant known as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). SSRIs are used to treat low mood (depression) and panic disorder. It can also be prescribed off-label for treating alcohol use disorder,  postmenopausal flushing, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), severe phobias such as agoraphobia and social phobia, bulimia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder.


  • How long can you take citalopram?
    Most doctors recommend taking an antidepressant such as citalopram for at least six months and up to to a year. Even after the benefits are starting to be felt, it's recommended to continue taking citalopram for several more months. Stopping before that time can cause a regression into depression.
  • Does citalopram help you relax?
    An antidepressant such as citalopram can lift a person's mood and relieve symptoms like depression. They may then sleep better, be more relaxed and feel less anxious about the things that were causing concern. Citalopram does not change personality.
  • Is it safe to take citalopram for a long time?
    To date, there are no known problems associated with long term use of citalopram when taken as directed. It is a safe and effective medication.
  • Why is citalopram not recommended for older adults?
    Dosage of citalopram for older adults needs to be adjusted. Some uncommon side effects have been reported when used in elderly patients, including akathisia (psychomotor restlessness), gastrointestinal bleeding, and hip fractures, which may be unique to this age group.
  • Is it better to take citalopram in morning or evening?
    The best time to take citalopram depends on whether or not it causes any sleep changes. If it generates feelings of sleepiness, taking it in the evening before going to bed is better. On the other hand, if it causes trouble sleeping or falling asleep, take it in the morning.
