Hi.Its not true. There is no interaction between caffeine and Celexa. Caffeine does not increases Serotonin in your brain.

What should I avoid on celexa besides alcohol?
Pharmacist: Saqib, Pharmacist replied 4 months ago

There is nothing specific to be avoided beside alcohol. OTC meds are ok to take. . Supplements like L-Tryptophan or 5-HTP should be avoided as they increase Serotonin

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

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!!
