Does anyone know what is safe to take while on Lexaprol??? I've been taking Aleve for my period cramps cuz its the only thing that works...but its an NSAID darn it. And the medications specifically says I can't take that. -BOO!- And now I'll have to find something else...can anyone help?

Have you tried buscopan? It helps me with cramps but is herbal based (I'm pretty sure).  Hope this helps

You could try calling your pharmasist and asking them they should know about drug interactions.

Heck.. I've been wondering the same thing!!! I'm on Lexapro too and I looked at the drug list of interactions that can happen and nearly EVERY OTC pain med is on the list....

UGH

Hopefully someone can give us answers.


Til then.. I have an awful migraine... cuz I found out I can't take Tylonel with my lexapro !!! GRRR
