Yes: Those two meds can be used together to treat those disorders. Unfortunately they will not overlap and provide benefit for both disorders. There is always the potential for some type of drug interaction or to just not feel well with both meds on board so it is importannt to have close follow up with the prescribing provider

Why was the Celexa (citalopram): decreased? Wellbutrin (bupropion) and celexa can be used together for atypical depression. Just don't understand why the SSRI is being reduced.
