Can Take Lexapro With Sudafed?

I have a cold and want to take sudafed. I take lexapro can I still take the sudafed?

Answer

Hi, Ann,

I can't find any significant known interactions between these two medications, BUT you need to ask your doctor this question. There are factors to be considered in addition to these two medications -- any health issues/conditions you may have, and ALL other medications you are taking including prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, dietary supplements, etc.

If there's nobody available in your doctor's office over the weekend, at least check with your pharmacist. It's really not safe for any of us to tell you if it's safe since we don't know all of your medications, etc.

Hope you feel better soon,

Teri
