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
