  • i dont see why there would be a problem.. but you should always let your dr know what other meds youre taking before he prescribes you something.... if he doesnt know just call and ask him to make sure.

  • Iron and Lexapro is generally fine. It is probably also fine with your birth control, but they will ask you about all medications being taken when you go to get put on it... so just tell them what your taking and the dosage and they will guide you from there.
