A 32-year-old male asked:

I'm currently on viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride). is it ok to take the occasional excedrin or advil? tylenol doesn't really help my headaches.

Occasional ok: Occasional Motrin is ok. However ssris affect platelet aggregation which can lead to easy bruising. Take Motrin with food or milk to avoid developing a gastric ulcer. If you are having migraines often consider Topamax (topiramate) or elavil for prevention.
