Is It Safe To Take Antidepressants With Vitamin B Complex?
Is it safe to take antidepressant drugs together with vitamin B complex?
Hi Dezan, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fluoxetin is a drug that belongs to the class of SSRI antidepressants (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and functions to reduce symptoms of depression by inhibiting the reuptake of the serotonin hormone in the brain. While alprazolam is a benzodiazepine group that functions as a sedative.
These two drugs do not have any interactions when taken together with vitamin B complex, so they are safe to take together. However, there is a note for the consumption of fluoxetine and alprazolam, these two drugs should not be taken with wine, grape juice or drinks and foods that contain alcohol because they can change the components contained in these drugs.
So, hopefully useful.
