Use PEP with other drugs

Jul 21, 2013

Dear doctor, It seems my question has been missed in the forum. Please help me explain following situation: I am under PEP treatment. I am also under treatment of depression. Last few days I took Citalopram 20mg as treatment for depression almost at the same time with Lamzidivir (Lamivudin; Zidovudin). My concern is whether there is any impact of Citalopram on my PEP when I take them almost at the same time? Please help. I am very concerned when a local pharmacist told me Citalopram would impact on the effect on Lamzidivir.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Yes, it's ok to take citalopram with your AZT/3TC (Lamzidivir, Combivir) PEP regimen.


Persistent side effect after PEP
Low CD4 and no symptoms
