Censpram 5 MG Description

Censpram is a prescription medication. It is used in the management of depression. The active component of Censpram is Citalopram (5mg). Depression is a condition associated with low mood, decreas

ed motivation, feelings of hopelessness, and loss of interest in daily activities. These findings significantly impact daily life. Multiple brain pathways and chemical messengers are involved in the causation of depression, chiefly serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Antidepressant medications target these pathways and neurotransmitters to help relieve the symptoms of depression. Panic disorder is a condition in which patients experience extreme dread or anxiety along with trembling, sweating, or increased heart rate. Sometimes after repeated panic attacks, patients may develop a fear of the situation, which is difficult to escape from, known as agoraphobia. The medication should be taken as recommended by the doctor. It should not be abruptly started or stopped, as it may cause withdrawal effects. Taking the tablet at the same time every day is advisable for maximum efficacy.
