Celexa is from a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). They are antidepressants often prescribed to people with anxiety, mood swings, and depression. It works by restoring the balance of serotonin, a naturally occurring substance in the brain. It is a neurotransmitter via which the brain communicates with the body and sends and receives signals.
The medicine is available in tablet and solution form. People suffering from bipolar disorder who use this medicine are at risk of a manic episode if they don’t take a mood stabilizer with Celexa.
