Frequently Asked Questions

Though each antidepressant has slightly different contraindications, there are certain drugs you should not mix with SSRIs or tricyclics—the two most common classes of antidepressants. 

In general, you shouldn’t mix SSRIs—such as Paxil or Zoloft—with the following medications: 

  • NSAID painkillers like ibuprofen or naproxen
  • Other antidepressants
  • Triptan-based migraine medications
  • Antipsychotics 
  • Certain asthma medications

 

Tricyclic antidepressants, like Surmontil, may react poorly with the following medications: 

  • MAOI-based antidepressants
  • Phosphate-based medications
  • Certain acid-reducing medications
  • St. John’s wort supplements

 

Combining contraindicated medications could amplify the effects of both medications, causing serious health problems, including severe cognitive impairment or organ damage. 

You can try numerous alternative treatments to manage your depression or as part of a larger treatment plan. Things like exercise, meditation, guided imagery visualization, and acupuncture may help balance brain chemistry and alleviate depression symptoms. 

Clinical depression is often the result of a chemical imbalance in the brain, usually caused by genetics, traumatic experiences, or chronic stress. 

Without medication or treatment, depression often comes and goes in waves. You may experience symptoms for several weeks or months, followed by a period of relief. Treatment and medication help rebalance brain chemistry to help alleviate symptoms.
