Taking this drug( Celexa) or cit

Posted , 6 users are following.

I smoke a lot of weed, and I injest thc using thc wax, edibles, and weed sodas. (Sounds crazy but in California they have all that ) I drink heavy on the weekends, I do cocaine with my friends, and I sometimes take pain pills Somas and Xanax. I have been taking the pill for 3 days now, and I feel nothing interferes with any of that. But my question is, would this b bad eventually? BTw I'm not an alcoholic Or pill head I'm just a heavy pothead.

    Hi Russell

    I don't think it's a good idea to continue with your life style whilst on citalopram. On reading your post, I got so worried for you I went onto Google and copied the info below. Please read and be kind to yourself.

    Citalopram does not mix well with street drugs or legal highs

    We don't know exactly how citalopram interacts with street drugs and legal highs.

    Cannabis can make drowsiness worse with citalopram and give you a fast heartbeat. Methadone can make drowsiness worse with citalopram. The citalopram could increase the concentration of methadone in your body.Citalopram could raise the level of cocaine in your body, giving you a bigger reaction.Taking citalopram with cocaine or ecstasy or amphetamines could bring on serotonin syndrome. You could get a high temperature/fever, agitation, confusion, trembling or weird muscle movements. You need to go to hospital if this happens. Tell the doctor that you are taking citalopram.

    You shouldn't be taking any of those other drugs while taking an ssri. You need to be honest with your doctor and let him know.

    God Bless!

      So did my 21 year old son! And he took is life 5 weeks ago. He smoked weed everyday. He had anxiety and depression. He was put on an ssri and took it while still smoking everyday. I'm not sure whether the weed had anything to do with it while taking the ssri but I'm sure it didn't help.

      I'm currently on Celexa due to this loss. And it is starting to help me after 4 weeks.

      Please research the combination of the THC and SSRI!

      All the best to you!!!

    If you're suffering with depression and anxiety and you want to get better, then you know in your heart that the best thing is not to mix medication with drugs.  Why would jeopardise your well being and happiness for something that you know is harmful.  Citalopram alters your brain chemistry, and is not a medication to take play around with.

    Smoking weed gives you a more likely chance to develop schitzophrenia and is adding to your depression.

    I was ill for 15 years with depression and never, ever want to be there again. The scariest time in my life plus I lost all those years of my life.  Why would you jeopardise your mental wellbeing for drugs?

    You've taken this medication for 3 days ... I think you might be surprised what's about to hit you with these meds ......

    You should speak to your doctor.  Don't mix these meds.

      Russell, my son was angry all the time as well! He thought that Weed was the greatest thing in the world and that it was so safe. There were times that he wouldn't smoke for a few weeks at a time. And I noticed such a positive change in him.

      Then I would notice him being in a bad mood again and getting angry over little things and I would say to him, you started smoking again didn't you? He would get angry at the question but would always be honest and say yes.

      It's your life Russell! Why don't you just try and stop smoking for one full month! You can always smoke your brains out after that if you want.

      Just one month and see how you feel! You might even have withdrawl symptoms deoending on how much and how long you've been smoking so take that into consideration. And I don't care what anyone says, you can have withdrawl from weed!!!

      God bless!!!
