I'm on 20mg of celexa (citalopram) and have been taking melatonin over-the-counter to help me sleep. My wife said I should stop mixing these. Is it safe?

In brief: Probably safe

This is not a concerning combination and is probably quite safe.
Caution should be advised when adding any sedatives, though, including alcohol or benzodiazepines.
