Common Painkillers May Lessen the Effectiveness of Antidepressants

Posted on February 14, 2016 by Disability Help Group

Even if you have coverage, sometimes long-term disability benefits are denied. This is why you may need the help of an Atlanta long-term disability representative.

The Doctor’s Lounge reports that antidepressants, taken for depression and other types of mental disorders, may be less effective when also taken with common painkillers such as ibuprofen, naproxen and aspirin.

The study comes from the Rockefeller University in New York City and suggests that interactions between SSRIs-brands such as Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil-and over-the-counter pain medications could cause ineffectiveness in the SSRIs.

Researchers are still left with questions such as how this negative interaction could be affected by the amount of time on the medications and the dosage patients are prescribed. Therefore further studies will be necessary.

The findings of this study were recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Apr. 25 online edition.

Whether you need help with applying for long-term disability benefits or if you have been denied benefits and wish to appeal your claim, you should consult with an Atlanta long-term disability representative. a representative can help determine if you qualify to receive long-term disability benefits and assist you with the process of filing your claim or appealing a denied claim.
