Hi, Citalopram hbr (Hydrobromide) is standard Citalopram, so there is no difference whether it is spelled with the hbr suffix or not.
From what I found on the internet there is no difference. It could be from another manufacturer that marks the tablets differently. The hbr is a salt. It is best to not switch manufacturers if you can. Try to stick to the manufacturer that works best for you. Each one could have different fillers and additives that some people have reactions to.
But it is best to go ask your local pharmacist what the difference is.
If you find out something else, let us know, we are all open to being educated :)
