Brief Answer:
Zimovane with Vimovo will not cause any side effects when used together.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Madam.

I understand your concern.

Zimovane with Vimovo will not cause any side effects when used together.

Zimovane will help you to sleep quite easily.

Vimovo is the long term can cause weakening of bones and gastric ulceration.

Stopping Lamictal and Lithium is not the right solution as it is known to cause rebound side effects like seizures, mania and depression.

Psoriasis can be dealt with treatments like PUVA therapy and steroids.

Please check with your dermatologist if he can offer you the same.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.
