    Citalopram & Amoxicillin

    Hello!

    Was unsure where to post this but hoping this does the trick, I've been struggling to find info on this.

    I have 20mg of CItalopram daily but i've been prescribed Amoxicillin for a chest infection, are these safe to take together?

    Any help would be great thanks!

    Yes. There are no drug interactions.

    Been given Clarithromycin this time 500mg to try and get rid of the residual chest infection (which admittely got much better after the first round), do you happen to know if 20mg of Cit has any record of interaction?

    Unless you have heart disease which prolongs the QTc interval the combo should be fine. Presumably the prescribing doctor is aware of your medical history and has decided there is little if any risk.
