its the weekend and i have run out of escitalopram tablets, if i don't take them for a couple ofdays i will get bad withdrawal symptoms, can i take citalopram in the meantime until i get my prescription on monday?

Yes. Generally, the dosing of citalopram is about 2x whatever dose of escitalopram you are taking.
10 mg escitalopram ~ 20 mg citalopram
20 mg escitalopram ~ 40 mg citalopram
30 mg escitalorpam ~ 60 mg citalopram
Have a good weekend!
