Meds That Don't Mix- Be Careful

Jul 18, 2023

🚫Meds that don't mix- Be Careful‼️

Over-the-counter drugs help you deal with everything from headaches to allergies, but they can be risky if taken with certain prescriptions. Beware of common issues like these and ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any concerns.

💊Pain relievers and serotonin reuptake inhibitors, SSRS for depression-
Patients who take both are more likely to develop gastrointestinal bleeding than those taking SSRs alone.

💊Decongestants or antihistamines and blood pressure meds-
These over-the-counter drugs can raise your blood pressure and make your prescription medication less effective.

💊Antihistamines and sedatives or tranquilizers-Antihistamines may make you sleepy, which can be magnified by sedatives and impair your concentration. Aspirin and warfarin should prevent blood clots. Because these two are blood thinners they can increase your risk of abnormal bloating.
