Hi, no citalopram is the generic name for: "Celexa." Although it can only be obtained legally in the US by a physician's script, it is not, a controlled substance. Citalopram is a member of the anti-depressant category known as: SSRI/Select Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors. Basically, it creates increased levels of serotonin in the brain. So, as it begins to build to therapeutic levels in the brain, and there is more Serotonin there in the brain, the vegetative nature of depression, anxiety, etc., should not, for most persons, feel as vegetative as prior to this medication administration.
