    i wouldn't think so because lansoprazole is for protecting your stomach against drugs and reflux etc and citalopram is so difficult to take you probably need the lansoprazole. Have you any othet symptoms?

I took them for a few days and i felt DREADFUL like i was having a fit my body was all jittery and i felt over excited. It was frightening. Why do Drs tell you its safe when its not xx

    Hi Jmoo,you should not take Lansoprazole and citrolopram,.Using those medication together may increase the blood level of Citrolopram and increase the risk of certain side effects .before doing anything speak to your doctor .

    Do check with your doctor. My partner takes naproxen for back problems and was prescribed lansoprazole and sometimes omeprazole to protect stomach. He was on citalopram also and his doctor changed him to fluoxatine (another SSRI). Lansoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor and these drugs are known to have significant side effects and interractions with other drugs. Definitely make sure you're safe to take them with any other meds. Do also read up about the dangers of long term use of PPIs - it's a little concerning when reading of the increased problems they cause.
