Vitamin B12 and Citalopram. - January 23rd 2012, 04:01 PM

My sleeping schedule is eff'd up. I can't sleep before 12am and I have to sleep 10+ hours or else I'll feel like complete shit. I googled it and apparently Vitamin B12 may help. Problem is I'm on antidepressants (Citalopram, 40mg to be exact) Will they mess up my antidepressants? I know it's unlikely but I'm pretty wary with taking other pills.

I'm almost certain that vitamins and antioxidants like vitamin B won't do harm to do your anti-depressants. The only types of medications that would throw off/mess up your citalopram would be sleeping pills or anything really associated with sleep. The chemicals in sleeping pills gives a stronger depressed feeling to those on anti-depressants. You might also want to check the label, companies are required by law to list the medications that would interfere.

While your at it; I would like to suggest that perhaps eating a granola, or a peanut butter sandwich for your energy, often times these vitamins can be very expensive and honestly vitamins in general won't be the factor in determining your energy. Other factors like taking a morning shower, eating breakfast are also factors in addition.
