Adipex-P + Celexa (citalopram): You should avoid this combo if you can. Ssris such as Celexa (citalopram) may potentiate the pharmacologic response to sympathomimetic drugs such as Adipex-P (phentermine). You may experience jitteriness, racing thoughts, stomach cramps, dry eyes, palpitations, tremors, and restlessness. There is also a risk of potentially serious condition known as serotonin syndrome.

Celexa (citalopram): Not recommended, due to increase chances of developing serotonin syndrome.
