Yes, please. Is it okay to use Rhodiola while taking Celexa? I have a menopausal formula from A. Vogel called Vital Energy and it contains100mg of Rhodiola Rosea. I take 20mg of Celexa per day and I weigh around 120 lbs.

Thanks for the query.
Brief's interaction with CELEXA is not documented.
RHODOLIA ROSEA is also known by name of golden root or arctic root.
It is used in mild to moderate depression but it's claim regarding this is very limited and has not been properly documented.
Similarly it's interaction with CELEXA is also not documented.
You have to discuss with your treating doctor about it and seek his permission for it's concurrent use with CELEXA.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
