Celexa®, an antidepressant that is available by prescription, is commonly used to treat depression in adults. It is a type of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) and works to alleviate symptoms of depression by blocking the reuptake of serotonin when serotonin levels become unbalanced.
The medication is not suitable for everyone; before starting treatment, tell your healthcare provider about any other medications you are taking. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you have any other conditions (such as kidney problems, any allergies, or liver disease). Possible side effects include drowsiness, dry mouth, and nausea.
