In brief: It depends

"green tea fit" also contains guarana and acai berry.
Guarana is a stimulant containing caffeine, which stimulates the central nervous system, heart, and muscles. If you're taking citalopram because of anxiety, this supplement could worsen that. There are no interactions between citalopram & these ingredients, but you'll still need exercise & healthy foods (lean protein, non-starchy veggies, etc.

In brief: Do not waste your $

Do not waste your money with "weight loss supplements".
If you want to acheive weight loss, reduce your carbs to a bare minimum, drink only water, eat lots of low starch veggies.

Probably no interaction, but depends on what else is in the supplement in addition to green tea and I agree with Dr Rothman, most effective way to lose weight is good eating habits
