Trust me - most ‘qualified medical professionals’ will have less idea as to any interaction of that nature than most educated posters here.
For example, i know that i understand the actions of creatine better than any GP i have met - plus i bet i can learn more about the pharmacology of the drug in question (in a short time) than that same doctor that prescribed it has been told by the drug rep, coupled with the 60 seconds he spent reading about it in his medical index before prescribing…
GP/PCP’s have no clue about the supplements mentioned, and in many cases actually recommend one DOESN’T use them due to ‘unknown health risks’.
As for trials being done on the drug with specified sports supplement use - no fuckin way!
This multi-billion dollar industry does not spend more than the absolute minimum to get a drug through the red tape to the anxiously (pun intended) waiting public.
Citalopram is just an SSRI class drug; no real side effects, and as far as I’m aware weight gain is relatively uncommon on it.
Be aware that prolactin induced gyno is a slim (~0.1%) possibility (again, if I remember correctly), so keep an eye out for that in terms of cosmetic changes.
Delayed orgasm is relatively common while on the drug, though it also generally cessates once drug use is ceased.
Taper your usage down if you intend to stop, don’t go from (say) 40mg/day to 0mg/day - can apparently be unpleasant.
So, there you have it - my down and dirty synopsis. Be aware that I’m not a doctor, or indeed a medical professional in any shape or form ;p
