new to this! More Celexa questions for the Doc

Posted by Carole on February 4, 1999, at 22:49:04

I am about to start Celexa at 1/4 20 mg. tablet. I have taken almost every antidepr. available with no efficacy; instead have allergic reactions and multiple intolerable side effects including increased severe insomnia (thus the small starting dose). Naturally, I am anxious starting a new one. I saw somewhere on the internet that celexa interacts with xanax (I take sporadically only 1/2-1 .25 mg. tablet but still require it) and pain medication (I take 4 mg Dilaudid every 8 hours) and (!) grapefruit juice (which I enjoy). IS THIS TRUE? I have cfs/fibromyalgia, graves' disease (tsh now normal low range), endometriosis, severe allergies, frustrating sleep disorder (alpha intrusion into delta sleep and delayed sleep phase; sleep 7 am-3 pm with multiple awakenings). I hope it does not interact, particularly with the pain medication I need, as it took a long while for me to decide to try yet another drug. Before I saw that I was slightly hopeful (and I think my doctor, too) at the possibility of my trying something I heard was a bit different and better for people with multiple health problems and medications. Ok to mix?? Thank you.
