What Kinds of Medications in Psych health shoul I avoid when taking Naproxen. What other Psychic medications go and not go with Naproxen as well as when to take it with and do I continue on taking Naproxen? I was on it for at least to my knowledge 4 years. maybe longer.
I copied the following information for your convenience. Hope you find it useful.
"What other drugs will affect naproxen"?
Tell your doctor if you are taking an antidepressant such as citalopram (Celexa), duloxetine (Cymbalta), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem, Symbyax), fluvoxamine (Luvox), paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft), or venlafaxine (Effexor). Taking any of these drugs with naproxen may cause you to bruise or bleed easily.
Tell your doctor about all other medicines you use, especially:
a blood thinner such as warfarin (Coumadin);
lithium (Eskalith, Lithobid);
methotrexate (Rheumatrex, Trexall);
diuretics (water pills) such as furosemide (Lasix);
steroids (prednisone and others);
aspirin or other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), diclofenac (Cataflam, Voltaren), etodolac (Lodine), indomethacin (Indocin), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), meloxicam (Mobic), piroxicam (Feldene), and others; or
an ACE inhibitor such as benazepril (Lotensin), captopril (Capoten), fosinopril (Monopril), enalapril (Vasotec), lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril), ramipril (Altace), and others.
This list is not complete and there may be other drugs that can interact with naproxen. Tell your doctor about all your prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start a new medication without telling your doctor
You absolutely should not be on Naproxen long term. 4 years is FAR to long. Your stupid Dr. should know that. I made the same mistake, took it for over a year (2?) - I just lucked out it didn't put a whole in my stomach. Ask your Dr. of idiocy about this possibility, and if he continues to prescribe it like candy, consult another doctor.
Seriously, and Merry Christmas
