Can I Use 5 HTP Powder With Other Drugs - Citalopram
- Jul 19, 2019 -

Citalopram is the third Object of our “Can I Use 5 HTP Powder With Other Drugs” series.

Citalopram has little affinity for other receptors other than serotonin, so it is considered to be highly selective and has relatively few side effects. However, its ability to inhibit serotonin reuptake is weaker than that of paroxetine and Sertraline.

Long-term use of citalopram can restore expression. It has been reported in the literature that taking citalopram rarely produces drug resistance, and the final treatment for depression is better. Moreover, citalopram has a very good anti-anxiety effect.

However, citalopram should not be combined with droperidol because it may increase cardiotoxicity. Citalopram is also not suitable for theuse with imipramine, because it inhibits the metabolism of imipramine, increasing its bioavailability and prolonging its half-life. We should pay special attention, if citalopram is combined with other drugs that act on the central nervous system.
