Hi and thanks for your query to HealthcareMagic .

I have read your question carefully and understand your concern.

FDA (FOOD and DRUG ADMINISTRATION ) has published some side effects to drug interaction between Lupron and Depo -provera use , but they usually vary from the period time of you will use them.

Hence I will write most common side effects form interaction of Lupron and Depo-Provera :

- arthralgia
- bone pain
- cataract
- prostate cancer
- abdominal mass
- abnormal loss of weight
- ankle brachial index decreased
- anxiety
- atelectasis
- bone disorder

Hope I was helpful and please feel free for further discussion.

I currently take several medications for different health issues. Two of these are Lexapro and Wellbutrin. I was diagnosed with acute depression about 7 years ago and numerous medicines were tried individually. It was only when these two were prescribed in combination that the depression became noticeably less severe. However, after therapy for 5 years and a stay in a mental "hospital", I still do not have my life back. I was wondering if adding Celexa might be something I should discuss with my doctor? I used a Drug Interaction questionnaire which indicated there were no serious interactions with any of my medications, even if I included Celexa. Is Celexa actually an anti-depressant or is it similar to Abilify? Thank you! God Bless You and Your Family.

I have a bad cold with cough (for about a week now) and want to take coricidin II at night to get a good nights sleep. I checked for drug interactions as I am on meds for high blood pressure and 20 mg. of Prozac. There was a major caution due to possible serotonin syndrome - how great is the risk? I have been taking Prozac for more than 15 years and I titrate my dosage based on my mood over time. Right now I only need 20 mg. but in the winter it is usually 40 mg. Would taking Coricidin II at night for a couple of nights be too much of a risk? I believe it is called coricidin HBP in the US
