Can I take PRISTIQ with other medications

Tab type:  Taking PRISITQ Answers: 

It’s important to remember, do not take PRISTIQ if you:

  • Currently take, or have taken within the last 14 days, any medicine known as an MAOI (including intravenous methylene blue or the antibiotic linezolid)
    • Allow 7 days after stopping PRISTIQ before starting an MAOI. Taking an MAOI with PRISTIQ can cause serious or even life-threatening side effects
  • Are taking medicines containing venlafaxine or desvenlafaxine

Before taking PRISTIQ, tell your doctor about all prescription and over-the-counter medications and supplements you take or plan to take including:

  • Those to treat migraines or psychiatric disorders (including other antidepressants or amphetamines) to avoid serotonin syndrome, a potentially life-threatening condition
  • Aspirin, NSAID pain relievers, or blood thinners because they may increase the risk of bleeding
