Just want to know if they are the same drug, or if there is a differance because of the spelling.
Hi Suzanne is right. I just wanted to add that Citalopram is used most commonly for depression, while Escitalopram is used most commonly for anxiety. This description i took from ehow website is good:
"Escitalopram and citalopram refer to the generic drugs escitalopram oxalate (Lexapro) and citalopram hydrobromide (Celexa). Rx List notes that escitalopram and citalopram both help treat major depression, but escitalopram has additional utility in general anxiety disorder".
