Are faulty pregnancy tests ever related to the recent cessation of taking many medications long term such as Lithium Lexapro Xanax or Klonopin?

I dont' think the tests are faulty. However, those types of medicines tend to screw up menstrual functions. ~ T

It is not safe to take Lexapro, Vicodin and Klonopin at the same time as this combination can cause dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating.

It is not safe to take NyQuil while also taking Adderall, Klonopin, Lexapro, and Percocet, as it can cause seizures and other serious side effects.

Yes, it is safe to use the nicotine patch and Lexapro at the same time. There are no drug-drug interactions between the two medications and there are no disease states that call for the use of nicotine patch or Lexapro that would interfere in either of the medications efficacy.

That is pretty much my concoction minus Klonopin. I've found no interactions between the Lexapro and Vyvanse. Gabapentin, however, seems to lessen the benefits of Vyvanse, shortening its duration. The Klonopin, interestingly, has very little interaction with the Vyvanse but it helps with the crash. My experience alone.

Lexapro is an SSRI( Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor). Theraflu only interacts with medications known as MAOI's(Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor). Therefore, since SSRI's and MAOI's are two different types of medications, you may take the recommended dose of Theraflu along with a prescription dose of Lexapro.

Yes, but it will make you really, really sleepy. You will probably not get up and go to work the next day!

SAM-e should be fine with an antidepressant. It is going to interact with other hormone medications. Lexapro will be OK to take. Remember to take your Lexapro every day even if you don't feel you need it!

Sometimes SSRIs like Lexapro and benzodiazepines like Klonopin need to be adjusted, or you need to just find a different medication that doesn't cause bad side effects. For example, to replace the Lexapro, there are drugs such as Prozac and Zoloft, and to replace the Klonopin (if you think that is causing you more side effects) there are drugs such as Ativan and Xanax. Good luck!

Lexapro (generic name = escitalopram) is primarily metabolized in the liver. Only secondarily is it excreted in the the urine. Individuals who have had kidney transplants are generally able to take medications such as Lexapro. Of course, the prescribing physician should be consulted first.

My Dr. has prescribed both of these medications to me and I have no side effects at all from them. So I would have to say YES you can take Lexapro and Hydrocodone at the same time as long as you take them as prescribed.

You may take Tylenol and Lexapro together. Avoid taking any medications such as Ibuprofen or Motrin, as these can cause thinning of the blood, and gastrointestinal problems.

User Avatar

Ask your Doctor that prescribed the Lexapro. Your local Pharmacist is also a good resource. Also, you should always check with your Doctor before stopping medications.

The combination of these two medications should be fine to take. To be certain, check with your pharmacist or doctor.

Lexapro and Buspar are medications used to treat depression and anxiety. They should never be taken together, since they can flood the brain with serotonin, which can cause seizures and heart problems.

Lexapro is not approved for pregnancy but I would talk to your dr.They may switch you to a lower dosage or to a pregnancy approved antidepressant.

User Avatar

These two medications have major interactions. You should not take them together without talking to your doctor or pharmacist first.

It is possible that taking Lexapro and Requip together can increase the side effects of drowsiness, dizziness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people have also had impaired thinking while taking these medications in combination.

User Avatar

In order to switch from Lexapro to Prozac one must fist consult with a physician. The physician might advise you to take a break before switching the medications or it may be possible to switch without taking a break.

No. Only medication containing HCG will give you a false positive pregnancy test. See your doctor for confirmation.

User Avatar

If you are looking to use HCG for weight loss, make sure you check with your doctor before discontinuing any medication. In terms of will lexapro affect weight loss on the HCG protocol, the answer is "maybe." Some medications can interfere with the protocol - but all this would mean is potentially slower losses. If you are concerned about the HCG affecting the effectiveness of the lexapro, you will need to check with your doctor. HCG is a naturally occurring hormone that is produced normally during both pregnancy and normal menstrual cycles.

I wouldn't think that the Lexapro would screw up the test results themselves, however Lexapro really screws up your menstrual cycle. You can skip periods, only have spotting, etc.I would think the bigger issue is your getting pregnant while taking something like Lexapro. You really need to talk to your Dr. about that. Lexapro is not the "harmless drug" it was originaly thought to be. I speak from experience and am finally off of this med!~ TAnswerThere shouldn't be any effects on a home pregnancy test caused by lexapro, and I never had any problems with it effecting my cycle. It isn't perfect, and I also have since gone off it.

Lexapro (Escitalopram) is a Non-controlled medication. I would say, Better you get the suggestion from your Doctor. Because none other than Doctor would know well about the medications. If the Doctor says okay, buy your Lexapro at http://www.MEDonWeb.net without insurance and even without any prior written prescription.

You should ask your pharmacist if this is OK. Depending on what other medications you are taking - it should be fine, BUT check with the pharmacist first!
