    CBD Oil and Citalopram

    Hi, as the world is still topsy turvy and it can be overwhelming, I have started taking cbd oil. I already take 20 mg of citalopram every day and have done now for several years. At first the cbd oil was really good but now Ive noticed my mood/anxiety /thoughts are defo on a turn for the worse. has anyone takne them both at the same time and do they not work work together?
    Any help or advice would be appreciated.
    thank you in advance

    So you began taking cannabidiol because the citalopram was no longer keeping stress levels under control?

    How long have you been taking the CBD with citalopram? CBD inhibits two liver enzymes that metabolise citalopram which may have significantly raised its plasma levels. If you've only been adding CBD for a few days to a couple of weeks you could be experiencing the typical side-effects experienced when increasing the citalopram dose including heightened anxiety.

    I think raising the citalopram dose would have been a better option than using CBD.
