Celexa Withdrawal and Tapering Help

Many patients have reported serious and debilitating medical complications from Celexa (Citalopram), causing lawsuits in federal and state courts. Too many suffer horrific withdrawal symptoms. Our NonProfit has been helping people withdraw safely for over 14 Years. Contact the Prescription Drug Experts for Help.

The molecule in Celexa was synthesized in 1972 by Lundbeck, the Danish Pharmaceutical company. The drug was first released in Denmark in 1989 under the trade name Cipramil and by 1998 could be prescribed to anyone in the USA, under the trade name Celexa. Until 2003 (when the patent expired) Celexa was Lundbeck’s best selling drug, and representing 78% of the company’s profit in 1999. In August 2011 the FDA announced that Celexa caused dose-dependent QT interval prolongation that is a dangerous change in the heart’s electrical cycle. Long QT syndrome is usually diagnosed after a cardiac event such as cardiac arrest. The FDA also stated that Celexa (Citalopram) should no longer be prescribed at doses greater than 40 mg per day. A December 15, 2015 study published in the BMJ (British Medical Journal) states that some commonly used antidepressants, including Celexa, may increase some patient's risk of developing mania or bipolar disorder.  Contact Us if you need help to taper Celexa  or have questions.

Celexa info

Celexa (Citalopram) is an antidepressants drug of the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) class that was approved by the FDA in 1998 to treat depression.

How does this drug work?

The nervous system is the basis for communication in the body and this occurs by the transmission of electrical signals through long, thin cells called neurons. Electrical impulses travel rapidly through neurons to the end of the cell and the arriving pulse creates a voltage that causes the release of neurotransmitters.  But neurotransmitters are not meant to stay in the receiving neuron and only a small amount is used and the rest is sent to other areas of the body where the neurotransmitters are needed. 

What SSRIs do is force the levels of Serotonin higher in the brain by blocking the reuptake of Serotonin to other areas of the body - thus the classification as a Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor. However, this sustained Serotonin is also responsible for the long list of side effects that affect every system of the body.  95% of our Serotonin is found in the gastrointestinal tract but is also found in the blood platelets and the central nervous system. 

Although it is possible to measure the level of Serotonin in the bloodstream, it is not possible to measure Serotonin levels within the brain. Researchers do not know whether Serotonin levels in the bloodstream correlate to the levels in the brain or how antidepressants actually work.

WITHDRAWALS AND TAPERING Serotonin influences directly and indirectly the majority of brain cells, but also bowel function, mood, blood clotting, bone density and sexual function. Because Serotonin is found widely across the body, the effect of Celexa is also widespread and this also includes the Discontinuation Syndrome, or withdrawals. Abruptly stopping or rapidly withdrawing Celexa can cause sensory disturbances, gastrointestinal symptoms, lethargy, sleep disturbances, anxiety, agitation, irritability, and cognitive issues.
