Been prescribed citalopram alongside flupentixol. Are these ok to take together? Should I space out the time I take them?

Been prescribed citalopram alongside flupentixol. Are these ok to take together? Should I space out the time I take them?

OK: It is always best to ask your Doctor as he should know your full medical history and would not prescribe it if there were contra indications. This combination is not unusual, Citalopram for depression/anxiety, Flupentizol for Psychosis . Anytime you add a medication to another there could be more side effects, so you may want to take them at different times until you see how your body/mind reacts ...Read more

Is it ok to take 10mg citalopram and amitriptyline together?

Is it ok to take 10mg citalopram and amitriptyline together?

It depends: The safety of this combination depends on the doses of both medications, since they can affect each other's metabolism in your body. Most often amitriptylene would be kept at a low dose (50 mg or less) and your response monitored carefully.

So it should be safe. But again, check with a pharmacist. ...Read more

Two drs gave me these medicines can I take them together? Depokene200, citalopram, chlordiazepoxide, propranol and minasage.

No problem: They may be taken together. One concern I have is, why citalopram? It has no antianxiety properties. Propranolol can be fine. Librium is fine, Depakote has no role in the treatment of anxiety except on a rare occasion. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Have IBS and anxiety. Was prescribed today triavil 2-10mg, , amitryptline 20mg , with celexa (citalopram) 20 mg.  Wanted to know if ok to take these together?

Polypharmacy: With these medications, you are essentially receiving 30 mg of amitriptylene (a tricyclic antidepressant) 2 mg of trilafon (perphenazine) (an antipsychotic), as well as 20 mg Celexa (an ssri antidepressant). I would be cautious about sleepiness with them, and possible constipation. I also don't know the extent of your case, and cannot comment on the need for an antipsychotic. ...Read more

Mom takes plavix (clopidogrel) and metoprolol had angio and 2 stents. Psychologist recommended citalopram for her anxiety is it ok for her to take them together?

Mom takes plavix (clopidogrel) and metoprolol had angio and 2 stents. Psychologist recommended citalopram for her anxiety is it ok for her to take them together?

Citalopram: I'm not sure whether you mean "psychologist" or "psychiatrist" here. Most psychiatrists (who are md's) know there is some increased chance of bleeding when using Plavix (clopidogrel) + citalopram because both affect platelet function. Your mother would need to be alert to any symptoms like bruising, swelling, blood in urine or stools, headache, dizziness, or weakness, etc -- and report them immediately. ...Read more
