Can 10mg celexa (citalopram) be taken with omeprazole? Take celexa (citalopram) at night and then take the omeprazole in am? Was told yes by doc then no by other doc?

Can 10mg celexa (citalopram) be taken with omeprazole? Take celexa (citalopram) at night and then take the omeprazole in am? Was told yes by doc then no by other doc?

This means Celexa (citalopram) could build up in your system, potentially causing heart rhythm disturbances, serotonin syndrome, etc. I don't recommend this combination. ...Read more

I've taken omeprazole for reflux for a year. How can I come off it without having symptoms?

I've taken omeprazole for reflux for a year. How can I come off it without having symptoms?

Slowly: It is recommended that Omeprazole be weaned as opposed to coming off of it abruptly. If done too rapidly, this can lead to a rebound of acid production and rapid return of symptoms. Some would suggest slowly tapering the dose and using short acting antacids such as calcium carbonate or ranitidine as needed as one weans. You should talk to your prescribing clinician on how best to discontinue it. ...Read more
