Frequently Asked Questions

Combining certain medications—such as SSRIs and ibuprofen—can cause organ damage, disrupt brain chemistry, cause toxin build-up in the blood, and other serious health issues. It’s important to review your medical history and current medications with your healthcare provider before starting antidepressants.

Some of the most common medications contraindicated for us with antidepressants include: 

  • NSAID painkillers like ibuprofen or naproxen
  • Other antidepressants
  • Triptan-based migraine medications
  • Antipsychotics 
  • Certain asthma medications
  • Phosphate-based medications
  • Certain acid-reducing medications
  • St. John’s wort supplements
  • Tryptophan supplements

Though medication is the most common way to manage your depression, there are other ways to increase the “feel good” hormones. A few of the most common alternative therapies include:

  • Exercise and meditation
  • Acupuncture or massage
  • Emotional freedom technique (EFT)
  • Herbal remedies, like St. John’s wort


Under medical supervision, you can try these methods as an alternative to medication or combine them with medication to help your prescription work better.

Depressive episodes rewire the brain, increasing the likelihood of relapse—though this may not happen for weeks, months, or even years. However, if you experience depression every few weeks or several times a year, it may be time to get help. Treatment can increase the time between episodes and shorten them when and if they happen.
