Citalopram: Drug absorption and Oral Bioavailability

Citalopram is an antidepressant medication that belongs to the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class. When taken orally, citalopram is absorbed into the bloodstream through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

The oral bioavailability of citalopram is relatively high, typically ranging from 80% to 90%. This means that a significant portion of the drug reaches systemic circulation and is available for therapeutic effects.
