When I started taking apixaban a year ago, I read on the manufacturer's website that taking apixaban with a SSRI (type of antidepressant) could lead to an increased chance of bleeding. I weaned off the SSRI, but now, months later, I feel terrible and want to take the SSRI again. My EP says that he has many patients taking apixaban and a SSRI and has had no issues. My cardiologist said the same thing. Just wondering if anyone is taking both these types of drugs or has been advised not to do so. Thanks.
