Citalopram and Escitalopram Plasma Drug and Metabolite Concentrations: Genome-Wide Associations

By Mystery User

A recently published article in the area of Pharmacogenomics set out to identify genetic factors in Citalopram (CT) and escitalopram (S-CT), which are among the most widely prescribed serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) used to treat Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), that contribute to variation in plasma concentrations of CT or S-CT and their metabolites in MDD patients treated […]
