I'm wondering if you can take Darvocet and Lexapro 10mg? Do they cause problems when take in the same day or over time?Or is there another pain medicine that would be better? 
I've went on a medicine checker type site to plug in both meds..but I'm not exactly sure what I'm reading?!? I've asked the pharmacist and he said as long as I don't take darvocet every day, just when really needed.  I just don't know the risk or effects of taking these meds.
Any help/advice would be appreciated! smurf

I wouldn't think Darvocet is something you'd want to be on long term, but I don't know anything. advises doctors to use caution when prescribing antidepressants and Darvocet together.

I'd talk to your doctor about these concerns, for sure. And without delay.

If your physician ordered both of these meds for you and he knows all the meds your on than yes you could follow his orders.

The pharmacist is just pointing out that Darvocet is not a med for long term use but for when needed for moderate pain.

Thisis just my personal opinion and I am not a professional, remember your physician is the person you need to clarify your concern with if your still in doubt.

Keep posting and take care.
