Does Citalopram affect my pregnancy result ?

Can citalopram (the anti-depressents) cause a positive result on a pregnancy test? I finished taking them over a week ago but I am 4days late for my period.

Hi welcome to healthcaremagic

The chances of anti depressent tab. citalopram result in false positive pregnancy test is less... If the UPT is positive , then you need to confirm the pregnancy by USG scanning... There are other reason for the also positive , they are improper method of doing the test, improper reading it, also if there is recent infection it can result in the false positive, better get scan.. Hope I have answered your question...
