Hello hvega,

Taking prohormones with Lexipro can be dangerous, and the potential side effects of the prohormones can be harmful. Before taking any combination of such drugs, please discuss it thoroughly with your doctor so that you are fully informed of the risks. I understand your desire to use the prohormones with your working out program, but the risks are high.

Good luck to you,
