I am considering starting an SSRI anti-depressant (celexa "citalopram") as the past few months have not been easy for me (to say the least!).
Does anyone have any experience with taking SSRIs and painkillers together as well as Gleevec?
I am concerned about increases in bleeding etc. with aspirin or ibuprofen, and obviously we can't take paracetemol (acetaminophen). Also, I can't find codeine on it's own (and pharmacists look at you as if you are a druggie if you ask!).
Any knowledge or experience is welcome!
Thanks, Pin xx.
Ps. have had a bad experience with celebrex ("celecoxib", eye bleed) already, and that was before any SSRIs, but I have not had any trouble with either ibuprofen or voltaren (diclofenac) just on Gleevec.
