Hi all,
I woke up today with horrible allergies and sinus congestion, so I took a Claritin-D. I have felt miserable all day, suffering from lots of dizziness, inability concentrate, brain fog, etc.
I don't know whether this is just the allergies or can claritin-d somehow interact with antidepressants, specifically Celexa and/or citalopram, and make me this loopy? I googled it but couldn't find anything that says not to combine the two. Wondering if anyone has had a similar experience.

I think it was just the Claritin-D. I think the combo of your Celexa and the allergy meds just caused you to feel loopy. And more than likely the congestion just added to it. I am sure you will be just fine.
