Good morning, Volpa7,
Welcome to the Depression Formum, Volpa,
Citalopram hydrobromide is the generic name for Celexa,as you know.
It's used to treat major depression and mood swings, but not bipolar
Several members of the forum have taken Celexa and found that they needed an adjustment period to find it fully effective. Those folks may be online later and will tell you what to watch for, or you may go online to learn more about the side effects. It's supposed to be a good one,
from what I understand. (It increases serotonin in the body which causes calm, good feelings.)
