  • Antidepressant Interaction

    Hello all. I was wondering if anyone has ever taken an antidepressant and D-Mannose together? Reason why I am asking is becasue I was prescribed celexa today and I take D-Mannose for maintanence against UTI's. While reading about the D-Mannose it said that it does not interaction with medications but I still want to be sure. Does anyone have any experience with taking antidepressants and D-Mannose? Thank you in advance.

    It would be best to ask a pharmacist or your Dr about this. Interactions aren't anything you want to risk.

      I take D-mannose before and after sex. My understanding is that it is a type of sugar that our bodies make too. You could check with your pharmacist and also has a good drug interaction program where you put in all your meds and then run it and it comes back with any interactions. Its pretty handy.

      Anyways, my understanding of D-mannose is that it is a type of simple sugar/carbohydrate that our bodies don't metabolize. 80-90% of it goes straight to the urinary tract where any kind of bacteria bind to it and are peed out. I found out about it on here and instead of taking an antibiotic after sex I'm now taking this before, after and then about 8 hours later again. So far so good!

      Gelnique for frequency/urgency - works great
      Macrobid after sex
      Prilosec, continuous birth control pills
      synthroid .088mg, mucinex-d, restasis

      Supplements: Desert Harvest Aloe vera, Cysta-q, prelief, magnesium and calcium, Vit D, flaxseed oil
