Citalopram hydrobromide (citalopram HBr) is an orally administered selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) with a chemical structure unrelated to that of other SSRIs or of tricyclic, tetracyclic, or other available antidepressant agents. Citalopram HBr occurs as a fine, white to off-white powder. Citalopram HBr is sparingly soluble in water and soluble in ethanol. The tablet is available as the brand-name drug Celexa.

Safety Information
Citalopram hydrobromide Usage And Synthesis
  • AbstractCitalopram hydrobromide (citalopram HBr) is an orally administered selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) with a chemical structure unrelated to that of other SSRIs or of tricyclic, tetracyclic, or other available antidepressant agents.
    Citalopram HBr occurs as a fine, white to off-white powder. Citalopram HBr is sparingly soluble in water and soluble in ethanol.
    The tablet is available as the brand-name drug Celexa. In Australia, the UK, Germany, Portugal, Poland, and most European countries, it is licensed for depressive episodes and panic disorder with or without agoraphobia. In Spain, it is also used for obsessive-compulsive disorder.
  • EfficacyThe advantage of this drug is that it has no effect on cholinergic muscarinic receptors, histamine receptors and α-adrenergic receptors . Because if these receptors are inhibited,  a lot of side effects caused by antidepressants will produce, such as dry mouth, sedation, orthostatic hypotension. Citalopram hydrobromide is effective for not only endogenous depression patients but also non-endogenous depression patients. Its antidepressant effect is usually established after 2-4 weeks . Citalopram hydrobromide does not affect the cardiac conduction system and blood pressure, which is particularly important for elderly patients. In addition, citalopram hydrobromide does not affect the blood, liver and kidney systems. Rare side effects and the most mild sedative properties make it particularly suitable for long-term treatment.It does not lead to weight gaining,and it does not strengthen the role of alcohol.
  • Side effectsYou should not use this medicine if you are allergic to citalopram or escitalopram (Lexapro), or if you also take pimozide.
    Do not use citalopram if you have used an monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) in the past 14 days. A dangerous drug interaction could occur. MAOI inhibitors include isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue injection, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, tranylcypromine, and others.
    Side effects are usually small, very mild and transient. The most common adverse reactions are: nausea, increased sweating, salivation reduction, headaches and sleep time shortening. They are usually more obvious in the first or second week when treatment begins, and they generally disappear with the improvement of depression. In rare cases ,seizures have been observed. For  patients who suffer bradycardia , bradycardia can make treatment more complicated.
