Celexa And Temazapam

Seeker Says:

For the last three weeks I have taking citalopram 20 mg (a generic of celexa) and 15mg temazapam. The first 2 and half weeks I felt great, the last few days I have had a low mood, lost my appetite and have poor memory. I was prescribed the meds since I had an emotional meltdown. I am usually a happy, alert person and I do not like how I am feeling. Has anyone taken a combination of these meds? Do you have any symptoms like the ones I am feeling? I am open to suggestions. Thank you!

Hi Seeker,

Based on my research, there are some moderate drug interactions you should be aware of while taking these two medications together. The interaction basically states that using either drug together may increase your risk of certain side effects such as impaired thinking or judgement, dizziness, and even difficulty concentrating.

Temazepam can also reportedly cause memory loss, loss of appetite, and unusual behavior as possible side effects.

You can read more on that here: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMHT0012321/?report=details#side_effects

Celexa (citalopram) has similar side effects as well, so you may just need to talk with your doctor about trying other alternatives if the symptoms become too bothersome or severe.

I hope this helps!
