In brief: Ashwandha/Celexa

No serious adverse interactions, except some added sedation if Celexa (citalopram) has caused sedation already.

In brief: It is okay

Aswagandha that is what you mean I assume reported to interact with immunosuppresants, thyroid hormones and sedatives.
Celexa (citalopram) does not belong to any of the these class of medications. If you feel sleepy with celexa, (citalopram) you might feel more sleepy, then consult with your prescribing physician,

In brief: Likely Safe

There has not been any studies showing any safety concerns with these two medicines.
They should be safe to take together. It is important to stop both medications immediately if you experience any side effects and contact your primary care physician.
