Is there is any Lexapro (escitalopram) interaction with omeprazole (prilosec)?

Probably not but... Omeprazole can inhibit an enzyme in the liver that breaks down lexapro (escitalopram). Thus, levels of Lexapro (escitalopram) can theoretically increase when used in combination. I have not seen this in practice but it is described and should be monitored for, especially if you take a higher dose of lexapro (escitalopram).

I've had an upper resp cold. Dr gave augmention & omeprazole. I take metforemin 1500. Lexapro (escitalopram) 20. can I take all these meds together?

No. Take them individually. Give each medicine time to absorb. The Omeprazole is intended to protect your stomach while taking the antibiotic. It should be taken before the Augmentum. Generally waiting 30 minutes between pills is ideal. All the best and feel better. Read more...

Both can do it. It's possible for either alone to cause rashes. So, the combo may increase the risks - definitely call the Dr and let them evaluate this ASAP. Don't just stop the Lexapro (escitalopram) - that can be risky too. The Prilosec can be stopped if you wish safely after so short a time. Call ASAP for help on it if it continues. Best! Read more...

This does not mean that you will have all of these side effects - it just means that they have been known to occur. I often focus on the most serious potential side effects or the most common ones.

Talk to your doctor . Prilosec can increase the blood level of Lexapro (escitalopram) and thus increase the risk of side effects. That being said, there are many patients who take both together and never experience any problems. Talk to your doctor who knows you and can monitor you accordingly. Hope this helps! Best wishes!
