          Description


          In 1998, Citalopram was approved by the FDA for treatment of major depression. This drug is also prescribed off-label for treatment of a range of other conditions like anxiety disorder, panic attacks, etc. Over the years, Citalopram has shown high effectiveness in the treatment of different mental disorders. For instance, its effectiveness in treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) has reached 85%.

The drug is often used off-label to get rid of panic disorder, anxiety, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD).
