Citalopram Alter uses and description

Sort by popularity
Citalopram Alter - Used for: Treating depression. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Citalopram Alter is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). It works by restoring the balance of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain, which helps to improve certain mood problems.

Pharmacology: Inhibits the CNS neuronal uptake of serotonin, potentiating serotonergic activity.

Indication: Treatment of major depression as defined in DSM-III and DSM-III-R.

Unlabeled Uses

Treatment of panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, premenstrual dysphoria, posttraumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder.

Citalopram Alter is an antidepressant. The mechanism of action is associated with selective blockade of the inverse of neuronal serotonin in the synapses of neurons of the CNS. Citalopram Alter lacks or has a very weak ability to bind to histamine, m-choline- and adrenoreceptors.

Citalopram Alter is one of a class of antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It is used to treat the depression associated with mood disorders. It is also used on occassion in the treatment of body dysmorphic disorder and anxiety. The antidepressant, antiobsessive-compulsive, and antibulimic actions of Citalopram Alter are presumed to be linked to its inhibition of CNS neuronal uptake of serotonin. In vitro studies show that Citalopram Alter is a potent and selective inhibitor of neuronal serotonin reuptake and has only very weak effects on norepinephrine and dopamine neuronal reuptake. Citalopram Alter has no significant affinity for adrenergic (α), or benzodiazepine receptors; antagonism of such receptors has been hypothesized to be associated with various anticholinergic, sedative, and cardiovascular effects for other psychotropic drugs. The chronic administration of Citalopram Alter was found to downregulate brain norepinephrine receptors, as has been observed with other drugs effective in the treatment of major depressive disorder. Citalopram Alter does not inhibit monoamine oxidase.

Citalopram Alter is used to treat depression. It can also be used to treat anxiety disorders such as panic disorder, social anxiety disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Citalopram Alter belongs to a group of antidepressants known as Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors (SSRIs).
