I'm being treated for depression with celexa (citalopram). I have been taking augmentin for bronchitis and had also done some over-the-counter sudafed and Afrin for congestion. Also, I have been stealing my daughter's ritalin, grinding it up, and snorting it. Last week I had a few angry outbursts. Could the interaction of these drug have resulted in the anger or does celexa have those side effects alone? I'm on 20 mg.

Hi Marty, My expertise in depression related problems is specific to "light therapy". I would not be the right choice to answer your question fully. However, having been the co-director of a holistic health facility and a serious "wellnes" practioner myself I do feel comfortable in saying that the mixing of different meds. is a very good place to question. Finally, without meaning to be rude I feel compeled to say " snorting ritalin that was not prescribed" is dangerous and stupid! It is a very good idea to find an experienced (open minded)holistic doctor...NOW. It is very important to be totally honest with your doctor, so that he or she may make an educated suggestion that just might change your destiny. Good Luck...kc
