 I am prescribed .50mg Xanax (alprazolam) 3/daily, 75mg Amitriptyline, and 50mg Trazadone. I'm 6'1, 232 male. Is this safe?

OVERLAPPING MEDS: The combo of Meds you are on looks like you are being treated for anxiety and depression . Xanax (alprazolam) is short acting for anxiety . Trazadone and amitriptyline are long acting for anxiety and depression but are very similar and both cause weight gain.. I would taper trazadone and start cymbalta. You need full lab work up including TFTS. Also a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea. ...Read more

69-y Parkinson male. Took(Piribedil Sustained-release Tablets;Levodopa and Benserazide )for 9 yrs.Recently drug-resistant(cant lift legs),suggestions?

69-y Parkinson male. Took(Piribedil Sustained-release Tablets;Levodopa and Benserazide )for 9 yrs.Recently drug-resistant(cant lift legs),suggestions?

Please repost: Your dad maybe? Piribedil & bensazeride are not available in the US. Where does 69 live? In US or abroad? If he lives here, will he continue to make his US neurologist's life more diffcult by insisting on using foreign drugs? If he lives abroad, getting advice from a US neurologist is pointless if the US & foreign drugs aren't the same. You need to clarify. ...Read more

Diabetes non cot: Your friend should address this issue. How old she is, 43??, for how long has been managed with this medications ? and is an endocrinologist doing the management?

Yes, very!: If your son has "purchased" these anabolic steroids, in all likelihood, he is not under the management of his physician. Excess T from unsupervised use is very dangerous and can increase risk for heart attack, stroke, mood changes, etc. It can also render men infertile as well as shut down T production. Best to see family doc for evaluation. If he truly has low T, need to find cause first. ...Read more

Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?

Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?

Probably Not: Especially for someone who is young. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't even get metabolized by the liver. That being said, it makes sense to monitor you liver w/regular lab-work & to ask yourself if exercise, nutrition, & meditation can help your symptoms & reduce your pill burden. ...Read more
