Just as he said they are 2 competely different drugs.Xanax is a prescription drug and it is classified as a benzodiapine type drug.I also know that citalopram or other wise known as CELEXA.Is an SSRI.Which means Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor.They are both used for similar things but are very different.Typically though a doctor would prescribe an SSRI before he would a BENZO because first of all xanax is in a catagory of addictive drugs.While SSRI'S are not.I hope this has helped you.If you have any further questions feel free to PM me.

Sounds like a riddle.
Both are often used for anxiety disorders, also, both affect the brain, utilized usually for mental illness, and both are associated with discontinuation syndrome when taken on a regular basis. Other than that, not a whole lot. Xanax is a benzo that affects the GAMA, and Citalopram is a SSRI medication. Two medications that do two different things, however, can help a similar common goal at times.
