The generic ingredient in Celexa is called citalopram which belongs to the family of drugs that treat depression called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs.
Doctors prescribe Celexa to treat depression. This medicine can also be prescribed by some doctors to treat other conditions such as obsessive compulsive disorder and panic disorder.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that allows for communication between brain cells. Patients with depression may have low levels of this neurotransmitter. Celexa works by preventing the reuptake of serotonin, thereby keeping the levels of this neurotransmitter at an optimal level.

Depression is more than just feeling down. It is a genuine medical condition (a mental illness) and may be caused by a number of factors such as an imbalance of brain chemicals or family history. Symptoms include feelings of sadness, hopelessness, worthlessness or guilt. Other symptoms are trouble thinking, loss of interest in activities, thoughts of suicide and restlessness. For people having an episode of depression, these symptoms occur most of the day nearly every day and seriously affect their quality of lives.
