Description

General description

Citalopram is a bicyclic phthalene derivative. It initiates serotonergic activity, which produces antidepressant action. Citalopram hydrobromide reverses memory impairment. It is used to treat obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, sociophobia and premenstrual dysphoric disorder.

Application

Citalopram hydrobromide has been used:
• to examine its effects on sirt mRNA and mammalian sirtuins (SIRT) expression in mice
• to monitor body temperature and antidepressant-like behavioral responses in the forced swim test for rats
• for 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) competition uptake assays

Packaging

10 mg in glass insert

50 mg in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Potent and selective serotonin uptake inhibitor (Ki = 5.4 nM); antidepressant
