Celexa : Special Warnings About This Depression Medication

When should Celexa not be prescribed? 

Celexa- CITALOPRAM HYDROBROMIDEIf Celexa causes an allergic reaction you should discontinue this depression medication immediately.  Also, remember that Celexa must never be combined with an MAO inhibitor. 

Special warnings about this depression medication: 

In the usual recommended doses, Celexa does not seem to impair judgment or motor skills.  However, theoretical possibilities of such problems still remain, so you should use caution when driving or operating dangerous equipment until you’re absolutely certain of Celexa’s effect on you. 

There is also a slight chance that Celexa could trigger a manic episode.  Use Celexa with caution if you suffer from manic-depression (bipolar disorder).  Use caution, also, if you’re over 60 years old, have liver or kidney problems, suffer from heart disease or high blood pressure, or have ever had seizures. 

Possible food and drug interactions when taking Celexa:

Celexa does not increase the effects of alcohol.  Nevertheless, it’s considered unwise to combine Celexa with any other drug that effects the brain. 

 

If Celexa is taking with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased or altered.  Tell your doctor about any prescription or over-the-counter drugs that you are planning to take, and be especially certain to check with him/her before combining Celexa with the following:

  • Carbamazepine (Tegretol)

  • Cimetidine (Tagamet)

  • Erythromycin (Eryc,Ery-Tab)

  • Fluconazole(Diflucan)

  • Itraconazole (Sporanox)

  • Ketoconazole (Nizoral)

  • Lithium (Lithobid, Lithonate)

  • Metoprolol (Lopressor)

  • Omeprazole (Prilosec)

  • Other antidepressants such as Elavil, Norpramin, Pamelor, and Tofranil

  • Sumatriptan (Imitrex)

  • Warfarin (Coumadin)

Celexa: Special information if you’re pregnant or breast-feeding 

The effects of Celexa during pregnancy have not been adequately studied, and the potential for harm have not been ruled out.  If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while taking Celexa, tell your doctor immediately. 

Celexa appears in breast milk and will affect the nursing infant. You should probably consider discontinuing either breast-feeding or Celexa at that time.  You should talk with your doctor about the pros and cons of each available option.
