Do Painkillers Interfere with Antidepressants?

submitted by: admin on 06/14/2024
Antidepressants, especially those in the SSRI category such as Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil, may not work in people also taking painkillers such as ibuprofen and aspirin.

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2013
Up to a fifth of patients on SSRI antidepressants do worse than with placebo. There is no way to tell who will do worse.

SSRI antidepressants, according to research published in the February issue of Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews, may increase serum levels of serotonin, but actually lower levels in the brain. This family of drugs blocks the re-uptake of serotonin by nerve tissue, which raises serum levels but actually lowers levels where we need them the most -- in...
