Doctors have a new warning for patients talking two popular anti-depressant medications.

Researchers said there’s a risk for people on Celexa and Lexapro.

Psychiatrists at Massachusetts General Hospital said those medications can up the chances of developing an abnormal heart beat.

The doctors said while the risk is small, it’s more common for those who are on a higher dose of the medications.

They do warn people not to stop taking the medicines suddenly.

Always check with your doctor first.
