Thank you for posting your query.

Salipax (fluoxetine) is a safe medicine and is commonly used for treating depression.

There is no need to worry about your current headaches.

If the headaches are occasional, you could take paracetamol or ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets for pain relief.

If headaches become more frequent, you would require evaluation to find out its cause.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Wishing you good health,

I only have anxity and not depression I think.. so there is no problems in taking medicine for my headaches?
Also, would taking Tylenol in specific be a problem?
