Azilect (rasagiline) is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor which means the alarm bells will always ring for drug interactions.

Taking Wellbutrin (bupropion) together with Azilect increases the risk of bupropion toxicity. They should never be taken together. At least 14 days should elapse between stopping Azilect and starting Wellbutrin and vice versa.

Taking Lexapro (escitalopram) together with Azilect increases the risk of serotonin syndrome, see https://www.drugs.com/enc/serotonin-syndrome.html. They should be never taken together. At least 14 days should elapse between stopping Azilect and starting Lexapro and vice versa.
