Interactions Of Depression Medication And Antacids

I take zoloft and buspar for depression and anxiety. Is it safe for me to take an antacid with these medications?

Answer

There are no listed side effects between taking these with antiacids but you should ask your doctor and pharmacist about this. They may have recommendations of how best to space them. Also, make sure your doctor and pharmacist know about all of the over the counter and prescription medications you are taking. Try to use the same pharmacy for all medications so that they can keep track and will be able to see any dangerous interactions.

Lastly, while looking this up I saw that you shouldn't consume grapefruit or grapefruit juice while on Buspar. I just wanted to make sure you were aware of that.
