I wouldn't worry: 2 classes of drugs, often used together. That being said, because of the sedation with Baclofen if you're only taking one a day i'd take it at bedtime, unless you need it during the day. Citalopram (celexa) can be taken in the morning or at night if it doesn't effect your sleep. If you have MS or spasticity and need Baclofen several times a day take the Celexa (citalopram) when you have less in the way of pos.

No interaction: Although there is no known significant interaction for these two medications, it is always advised using combo meds with cautions. If you must take the medicinesm pay atttention to your body, as u get older u r more prone to side effects which u may not have when younger etc. When in doubt, consult your doc. Good luck.
