Be careful: The supplements that you list have no significant health benefits. Further, you can overdose on B12. Unless you have a documented deficiency, it should not be taken. Lastly, side effects and interactions are unpredicable and vary from person to person. I would recommend that you stop everything until you determine the effect of the citalopram by itself.
