Baclofen: Baclofen is a muscle relaxant and like most muscle relaxants they can cause sedation thus your decreased mental alertness. Celexa (citalopram) may or may not potentiate the sedation.

Yes, definitely: There is no drug interactions between these drugs. However, the most common side effects associated with Celexa (citalopram) and Baclofen are drowsiness, weakness and dizziness, thus may make you feel more sleepy or lightheaded and less mentally alert.
