No documented direct adverse interaction.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,

Welcome and thanks for your query.
There is no documented direct interaction between the different anabolic steroids you have listed and your current medicines.
There is however an interaction between Xanax and Socian ( Amisulpride) that both increase sedation.

Do get back to me if you have further queries.

I am withdrawing from Cipralex , 10mg. Have been on Lexapro for nearly 15 years and moved to Canada- the doctor here started me on Cipralex. It was 20mg, but, not helping me so I decided to get off of it and cut it in half for a year. I am having what appears to be (by other posts on here) classic symptoms of withdrawl. I am taking St. Johns Wort as directed for a week now and have been 3 weeks off the Ciprolex. How much time does it take for me to feel like myself again! Have these doctors destroyed my brain with all this medicine??

Dear Doctor,
Good day to you. I'm on Cipralex for nearly eight months now. I'm more relaxed than ever. Before my doctor prescribed for me this pill, I frequently experienced panic attacks and disorders. Now there is something I'm missing at the most. Yes, it's my cigarettes. I also understand smoking is harmful to health. But what I feel is it actually does give me a great amount of relaxation and enjoyment. Moreover I use to feel lighter with no depressions. My psychiatrists are not permitting me to smoke. I prefer to lead a normal lifestyle even if I'm on cipralex or whatever. I may have few cigarettes in a day. I need your help.

I recently started taking Cipralex for my anxiety and depression. For the past week or so, my heart has been beating irregularly. It feels like it stops for a few seconds, and then starts again. When I place my fingers on my neck, I can feel my heart beat normally, and then it will pause for a second or two, and then start again, and when it starts again, it beats really quickly, almost like it's trying to catch up. I'm very nervous that this is QT interval prolongation, since I've read that Cipralex can cause this.
What is your opinion? Should I be worried? Should I stop taking this medication?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

hello I just got prescribed Cipralex for manic depression and was wondering i am smoker will this give me blood clots? I also have a medicinal marijuana licence for severe back pain will this affect the cipralex. Also if I miss a dose or start feeling like i dont need them anymore what will happen when I go off them as I have read these are addictive.
