Yes: Yes ... Prozac is not contraindicated with Motrin or tea. Although the combo together does increase the risk for a GI ulcer - so if try to minimize the use of Motrin as much as possible. If you need a chronic NSAID therapy, Celebrex (celecoxib) is safer on the GI system. Hope that helps & that you feel better!
