Hi all, have been stabilising slowly on 10mg citalopram over the last 3 weeks.
I had the bright idea of adding rhodiola to my daily pill regimen. It's a herbal supplement, an adaptogen, and it has sedating/antidepressant qualities.
I used it in conjunction successfully with cit back in 2016, but I think that was when I had stabilised on the cit at 5mg, and I didnt have any adverse effects. In fact, it really helped me through a stressful patch.
However, since I started it up 3 days ago, I've been feeling a bit worse. I've got fluey symptoms, sore throat headache, and have been feeling really tearful and a bit more agitated.
Now this could just still be the cit becoming established. But have decided to stop with the rhodiola as it's still cit early days, and perhaps the herbal supplement is somehow heightening cit side effects, especially if they both work on serotonin system.
Was just wondering if anyone else out there has taken this combo and has noticed any interaction?
Thanks lovelies. Wishing you all a good day.
