YES: Yes.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: They are not in the same family of medications, but i can see why maybe you are asking: both singulair (montelukast) and Aspirin interfere with the arachidonic acid pathway (the one that generates different inflammatory molecules). If true allergy to aspirin, no worries because they are totally different. If pseudoallergy to asa (google it), no prob because singulair (montelukast) doesn't work like asa. ...Read more

See below: Taking Asacol (mesalamine) hd & Prilosec at the same time may reduce the effectiveness of the asacol (mesalamine). Allow at least 2-3 hours between them. If the Asacol (mesalamine) irritates your stomach, take the Prilosec first, followed by the Asacol (mesalamine) a few hours later. Other antacids, acid blockers like zantac/pepcid will interact with Asacol (mesalamine) in the same way as prilosec; so space the meds apart when you take them. ...Read more
