Can Penicillin be taken with Citalopram?

I am currently taking Citalpram as prescribed by my doctor. I have an extremely sore throat - right tonsil sore, even more so to swallow. Throat/tonsil not red or swollen. I m now taking Paracetamol and ibuprofen every 3-4 hours which is taking the edge of the pain. I ve also been gargling with salt water and using difflan spray, but my tonsil is still so sore. I have phenoxymethlpencicillin, which I took when I had tonsillitis at the end of March this year. Can I take the penicillin with Citalpram?

Hello,

There is no adverse interaction between Penicillin and Citalopram. Therefore both can be taken.
