A local pharmacist calls to tell you that he is concerned about a recent prescription you wrote for sumatriptan. The patient, a 45-year-old woman who is well known to you, is also taking citalopram 20 mg/day. She is taking no other medications. She is healthy with depression she describes as "under control" since starting medication and therapy more than 5 years ago. She does complain of migraines one or two times per week that interfere with her ability to work.
