I've taken Citalopram for 5 years and just recently upped my dose to 30mg.
I've always been told that there is no major food interactions with this drug (other than maybe grapefruit? and alcohol). However, I found this one site and it claims that Citalopram interacts with all these foods:
Tyramine Rich Food Products:
"Tyramine Rich Food Products: Interaction between citalopram and tyramine-rich foods like cheese, milk, beef, chicken liver, meat extract, avocados, bananas, canned figs, soy beans and excess chocolate can result in sudden and dangerous increase in blood pressure."
I got freaked out and called the pharmacist and they said there were no major food interactions I should watch out for.
The site was from MedIndia (I'm from the US btw). So, I'm guessing there's just an error?
