Common Questions and Answers about Citalopram grapefruit

I had heard the same. The grapefruit binds to the same enzyme that your body uses to rid itself of the Zoloft. So you can get toxicity from too much left over Zoloft in your body. As soon as I am done with tx and anti-d's I am going to plant a grapefruit tree tho!!
Regarding grapefuit juice, data supports grapefruit supplements should not be taken during tx, but a daily glass of grapefruit juice is ok if your system can tolerate the acid. Good Luck with your treatment.
You mentioned you have been on the drug, Citalopram for 3 months. Was it your doctor who prescribed Citalopram for you? The following information about Citalopram comes from a resource book I own called The Canadian Guide to Drugs and Supplements. The book is written by the Canadian Pharmacists Association and published by Reader's Digest. ( Completely Revised and Updated) copyrighted in 2008. On a hunch, I looked up the side effects of Citalopram.
selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as citalopram (Celexa), duloxetine (Cymbalta), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem), fluvoxamine (Luvox), paroxetine (Paxil), and sertraline (Zoloft); and theophylline (Theolair, Theochron). Your doctor may have to change the doses of your medication or monitor you more carefully for side effects.
Celexa has been around long enough that there is a generic of it called citalopram. It helps some with the anxiety caused by the meds in addition to the depression. It also doesn't interact with grapefruit like some of the antidepressants. That's about all I know.
eat smaller portions and eating all healthy things. taking fish oil with omega 3's and tomato juice,grapefruit juice. ect.. just thigs that are healthy seems to make the extra beats less. but even with a good diet still bad days will come... today for about a hour it was pretty much hell with one hitting every other beat. I stated praying because it was frightening. after that i got up and went outside walking they subsided.
I was convinced Candida had taken over my body. So I started on multiple antifungals including garlic, grapefruit seed extract, oil of oregano oil, caprilic acid, coconut oil, olive leaf extract, black walnut hulls amongst a million others. What I realised is when I would take some of these things I would experience the "attacks/episodes" that I am experiencing now.
I am not classed as a disabled person. The doctor has put me on an antidepressant (Citalopram works for me) to help me cope mentally with the physical problems. And last week the Triage physiotherapist sent my doctor a letter to prescribe Amitriptylene. This is an antidepressant, but helps with nerve traps in the body. Only started on that last night so will see how things go. Just pace yourself so that you do not do too much in one day.
