Which antidepressant: For example, pharmacodynamic drug-drug interaction among citalopram, aspirin, and clopidogrel may cause a GI bleed. But this increased risk of bleeding is not associated with non-serotonergic antidepressants such as bupropion, and seems to decrease when SSRIs are discontinued. Ref: http://www. Mdedge.

Needs more workup`: The bleeding is likely coming from the raw inflamed surface of the stomach lining which is "oozing" blood. Not sure how much workup, but wonder if this could be due to H. pylori and/or a "hypersecretory" (acid) condition (e.g., gastrinoma), which keeps your stomach lining chronically irritated. See a GI doc if you have not already, there is surely a way to manage this better. ...Read more
