Default Can you take antibiotics with Citalopram? & Other questions.

For the third time I have a UTI, and the last two times I haven't gone to the Doctor about it because I was too embarrassed and scared, but the pain is so unbelievable all the time i'm going to have to.

Plus, it's my birthday in about a week and I don't want it then.

I know they use antibiotics to treat UTIs but can you have them with Citalopram?

Also, I had a foot problem (fungal infection in my big toes) so I went to the Doctor who booked me in with a specialist in January. Now, I was too scared to go and so didn't turn up. I never rang like I should or anything, but it's really painful to walk a lot of the time and it needs clearing up.

If I tell her about it she'll wonder why I never went to the speicalist because it's quite rude to just not turn up. I don't want her to think i'm rude, how do I tell her?

Lastly, I think I lost two months of my pill, and i'm on the last lineup. If I tell her I lost them she might shout at me and think i'm irresponsible. How am I supposed to tell her that?

God, i'm such an idiot

I went to the doc for the first time today since.. well since forever, nearly gave myself a panic attack while in there. It'll be a lot easier the second time around.

I think for your discussion with your doc you should be honest about the SA influence on your decisions, that will make him/her a bit more receptive rather than upset. You'll have to ask about the med conflict as well, maybe write it all down first

SSRIs can be combined with most antibiotics.

What are the exceptions that SSRIs should not be combined with?

I think some old ones act as MAOIs, forgot their names.
