Question Celexa (Generic) + Synthroid - effectiveness? interactions?

I was given the generic Celexa (Citalopram) to take in addition to my usual 50mcg/daily of Synthroid.

Does anyone have experience with these two drugs together? Is the antidepressant effective? Can you take both at the same time? Any other useful input???

Thanks!!!

Lisa

It would be best to not take Celexa with the synthroid just in case there is an interaction, to be on the safe side.

I did take Celexa for about a month. Now with Paxil I have read that you may need more thyroid medicine while taking it, but do not know about Celexa.

Hi. I've been taking Celexa with Synthroid for a while now. I haven't had any problems. I take my Synthroid in the morning, and my Celexa in the evening because it makes me tired. I hope this helps.
