I had a heart attack a year ago and have been on Effient 10mg daily ever since. Is there an antidepressant that is safe to take while taking Effient?

Effient (prasugrel) does not list any drug interactions with any type of antidepressant medication. The majority of the drug interactions are with other platelet aggregation inhibitors, anticoagulants and NSAIDs (ibuprofen, naproxen etc). If you notice bleeding for no apparent reason, please contact your doctor.

Always be sure to provide all of your health care providers with a current list of your medications including OTC products.
