Citalopram and Omeprazole

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all

Have just read about the effects omeprazole can have when taking citalopram. I am four weeks in and was feeling better about a week ago. However, had several omeprazole tablets for reflux over last week and now feel really crap again. I have now read that this can boost your serotonin level too high and cause agitation which I am certainly feeling at the moment. Does anyone have any experience of this? Or is it just another horrid blip that is taking its time to pass?

    Hi Jane, I am Cit & have been for a while, I am also taking Omeprazol for a hiatus hernia & have not had any problems, so I suggest you may be having a blip, unfortunately it does happen it can take a while for everything to settle down, so perhaps try for a little longer or perhaps see the Doc, hope this helps a little.

    Thanks for replies. Am actually feeling a bit better today and not so tense so maybe just a settling in blip after all. It is hard just to accept this rather rocky road. I am continually questioning what I feel, why it might be worse, is it working etc. Thanks for the support though. xx

    Hi Jane, i'm on 20mg Citalapram (just starting week 4) and omeprozole once daily. Been feeling rubbish, and wretching every morning when I wake up. Saw gp yesterday who said not to worry about the drug interactions and even suggested increasing the dose of omezprozole, as the heaving may be reflux. Just want to feel better!
