Celexa contains citalopram which is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor used to treat depression.
Celexa is indicated for the treatment of depression. Some doctors prescribe Celexa for other mental disorders such as obsessive compulsive disorder and panic disorder.
Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers in the brain. One of these neurotransmitters is called serotonin. It is thought that symptoms of depression appear when serotonin levels are too low. Celexa is part of a family of drugs called SSRIs which block the re-absorption of serotonin in the brain, thereby increasing the available levels of serotonin.

Depression is a complex medical condition with symptoms that vary from person to person. The more symptoms of depression you have and the longer they last may indicate whether the diagnosis is likely depression. Doctors use a physical exam, psychological tests, lab results and criteria set out in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) to make a diagnosis of depression. Symptoms include feelings of helplessness, worthlessness, and sadness. There may be weight gain or loss. Patients may lose interest in activities that they once enjoyed and have a bleak outlook. There may be physical pain like headaches, back pain or aching muscles.
