Need to ask Pain Doc: Yes, you have other options but you need to ask your pain doc. First, epocrates claims no significant interaction btwn Celexa (citalopram) & baclofen. Drugs.Com says there is a possible interaction http://bit.Ly/heiote. Second, alternatives to Baclofen & tizanidine include cyclobenzaprine, carisoprodol, dantrolene, metaxalone, Methocarbamol & orphenadrine as muscle relaxants per epocrates.

As above : When it comes to medication it is better to discuss this with u provider, after all he is the one who will write the prescription.
