My doctor gave me a prescription for Zoloft... I noticed on the label it says something precautionary about taking ibuprofen while taking Zoloft.

Anyone know what this is about? I took ibuprofen yesterday and I'd like to take the first Zoloft today but I want to make sure it's safe.

She first prescribed Effexor but fortunately after reading some posts here and googling, I realized how horrible withdrawal was with that particular drug and asked for something different!

Use of Zoloft with NSAIDs (e.g. inuprofen, naproxen) may increase the risk of bleeding.

Called my pharmacist, and he said it was fine to take both.
