Generic Drug Update: Celexa, Neurontin

by Caleb Reading

Celexa is now available as a generic (Citalopram Hydrobromide). The cash price on 30 pills of the 40mg strength is currently $40, and will probably go down more in the coming months. It is being made by Purepac, by the same facility that was manufacturing brand-name Celexa on contract. I can’t stress it enough: this is Celexa by another name with a slightly different appearance.

Neurontin went generic about a month ago (Gabepentin). I know for certain that the 100, 300, and 400 mg strengths are available right now. I don’t know the cash price on that one off the top of my head.
