Episode Info

Episode Info:

Today’s question is: Do SSRIs increase the risk of bleeding? Here is a summary of this episode: Prescribe SSRIs with caution in patients with a defect in platelet number or function and those with H.pylori infection. Concomitant SSRI and NSAID use is only of concern in patients taking daily and/or high doses. Avoid prescribing fluvoxamine with warfarin. There are no other warnings regarding the use of SSRIs and anticoagulants. It is generally not recommended to stop an SSRI before delivery and the absolute risk of postpartum bleeding is insignificant except in patients with a bleeding diathesis.   Download a PDF of this interview here Become a premium member of the Psychopharmacology Institute
