SUMMARY: In the February 2003 update of the Adverse Drug Interactions Program and in the Handbook of Adverse Drug Interactions 2003, the potentially lethal interaction between selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) was inadvertently omitted for citalopram (Celexa) and escitalopram (Lexapro). This interaction could occur with any SSRI.
