Escitalopram is simply an improved version of citalopram which means in general it has less side effects particularly in the early stages of treatment. Common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea and tiredness. Also, escitalopram does not carry the warning that citalopram carries concerning effects on the heart.
It isn't necessarily. Every human is different and we all react differently to meds. It may work better for some people and celexa can work better for others. They are the same kind of medication and work the same way.
Hi, Escitalopram is prescribed more often for GAD, Citalopram is prescribed more often for depression
