All drug companies have brand names for their drugs. However each of the brand name drugs have a generic name/Chemical name telling you what it's made of. For example Ultram is Tramadol Hydrochloride. It's just the chemical name. So the chemical name of Celexa is Citalopram Hydrobromide. It's the same medication it's just a the chemical name. Another example is Tylenol. Tylenol's chemical name/generic name is Acetaminophen. I hope this helps! Good luck!
