Citalopram and Psychadelic Drugs


Q: Hi there,

I am currently taking 20 mg of Citalopram each day. I am visiting Amsterdam and want to try truffles, but I am concerned about how psychadelic drugs react with SSRIs.

I have taken mushrooms before, but I was not on Citalopram. I am wondering if it will negatively affect my health to take truffles while on Citalopram and if I can't combine the two drugs.

I am aware that truffles are not good for my health - that is not what I am asking. What I need to know is if these drugs can be combined safely or not.

Thank you!
