User :   hello i am a female 33 years old
Doctor :   ok
User :  
i am currenly taking cipralex because i have had many migraines

Doctor :  
ok
User :  
i am wondering whether i can take also XXXXXXXX, is there any problem to combine those two medications?
Doctor :  
i will help you in this
User :  
thanks
Doctor :  
cipralex is Escitalopram which is also a antidepressant
User :   yes right
Doctor :  
XXXXXXXX is drospirenone & ethinyl estradiol
Doctor :   indicated for the prevention of pregnancy in women who elect to use an oral contraceptive
Doctor :   so if you want to use both
Doctor :  
then the cipralex will reduce the effect of XXXXXXXX in terms of pregnancy prevention
User :  
ok
User :  
also i want to ask what are the effects of XXXXXXXX in terms of migraines
Doctor :  
oral contraceptives tend to increase the frequency of migraines due to estrogen content in it
User :  
and whether I can combine XXXXXXXX with aspirin or cataflam
Doctor :  
since it contains estradiol, it might lead to increase in frequency of migraine headcahes
Doctor :  
you can combine them
Doctor :   but the time gap between then should be atleast two hours
User :   so it is only with cipralex that i cannot combine right?

Doctor :  
right now with cipralex you cannot combine since it will rduce the effficacy of the OCP
