Prescribing Information for Celexa (Citalopram):
What is Celexa
Celexa is an antidepressant related to the class of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It acts by recovering the balance of serotonin, a natural chemical in the brain which helps to solve different mood problems.
This medicine is used to treat depression.
What is important to know about Celexa?
Celexa interacts with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI). Do not use such medicines as isocarboxazid (Marplan), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam), or tranylcypromine (Parnate) while taking Celexa. Wait at least 2 weeks since last dose of MAOI before you start using Celexa and do not start taking MAOI earlier than two weeks after your last dose of Celexa.
Taking antidepressants for the first time can cause suicidal thoughts especially among people under 24. You will need to be examined by your doctor regularly for the first 12 weeks of treatment or more.

Stopping the medicine suddenly may cause relapse of your depression. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, talk with your doctor about how to stop using Celexa.
