Drugdad :

Hi

Drugdad :

Let me put this, you should try not to take herbal supplements with your regular drugs. Passion flower and gaba both affect CNS. Their effects are not fully known. Just from the side effects profile, passion flower can cause nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, a rapid heart rate, and abnormal heart rhythm. The abnormal heart rhythm is a concern to me because citalopram can cause QT interval prolongation.

Drugdad :

My advise would be not to take it together.

Drugdad :

If you have any other question, feel free to ask. If this answers your question and you are satisfied, kindly click accept to conclude. Positive feedback is highly appreciated too.

Customer:

Im understanding that its ok if I take my gaba & passionflower during the daytime & my citalopram at bedtime is fine? What does CNS stand for? Could clarify what QT interval prolongation means.Thank-you for your advice

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
