Eldepryl

Eldepryl

My loved one has been taking Selegiline for two years, as an add-on to Sinemet. Recently his neurologist prescribed Lexapro. He took it for a week and was not doing well at all. I Googled the two meds and they seem to interact badly with one another. Has anyone else taken both? I don't know why a movement disorder specialist would prescribe both if they are contraindicated.

Ask your pharmacist about the interactions and if they their is a problem, call your doctor ASAP.

Do you use Eldepryl (Selegiline) too? I think both meds are probably very good, but I wonder if anyone is taking them both.

@Elderpryl, If the doctor didn't catch that, the pharmacist should have detected the bad interaction it could cause. Hey, they are the professionals who go to school for 24 yrs.+
