What should I avoid while taking lansoprazole and naproxen (Prevacid NapraPAC)?
Avoid taking sucralfate (Carafate) or antacids that contain magnesium or aluminum (such as Maalox, Mylanta, or Rolaids) at the same time you take lansoprazole and naproxen. These other medications can make it harder for your body to absorb naproxen.
Ask a doctor or pharmacist before using any other pain or arthritis medicine. Many medicines available over the counter contain naproxen or similar medicines (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or ketoprofen). Taking certain products together can cause you to get too much of a certain drug. Check the label to see if a medicine contains naproxen or another NSAID.
Ask your doctor before taking an antidepressant such as citalopram (Celexa), duloxetine (Cymbalta), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem, Symbyax), fluvoxamine (Luvox), paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft), or venlafaxine (Effexor). Taking any of these drugs with an NSAID may increase your risk of stomach bleeding.
Avoid drinking alcohol. It may increase your risk of stomach bleeding.
