Penadene : This is similar to tylenol (acetaminophen) with codeine. It should be okay to take with Lexapro (ssri's). However, is combination with xanaxmay lead to untoward side effects. Please discuss best treatment option with your doctor. Nsaids are a better choice if no contraindication and if not have been tried.
