Would 380mg of lexapro, (escitalopram) 1050mg of seroquel XR and 4mg of temezepam be potentially fatal?
Potentially?: Not likely as a direct result of meds, but anything is possible. This is a larger and serious ingestion which may make you feel terrible.

Could someone kill themselves with 600mg of vistaril, 420mg of cymbalta, (duloxetine) 200mg of buspiron and 1200mg of ibuprofen?
ER or 911: Trish, if you are asking questions about suicide you should seek help immediately. Please call a friend or relative or call 911, or go to the emergency room. A suicide hotline is an alternative. If you are being treated by a physician he/she should have a 24-hour answering service and I would encourage you to use this as well. Please keep up hope, suicidal thoughts always pass. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can I take 3600mg gabapentin 120mg of propranolol 45mg mirtazapine 50mg of sertraline and 20mg of omeprazole daily as it's what I'm being prescribe?
Sertraline Mix: Hello. Have to be cautious with dose of sertraline and mirazapine as the mix can cause something, though rare, called serotonin syndrome. Gabapentin mixed with these 2 adds sedation and cognitive changes into the picture so best to stagger it instead of taking it directly with the others. Safe with omeprazole. Protecting your stomach. ...Read more
Is it safe to take 2mg of Xanax 2 mg of klonipin, 30mg of baclofen and 4 mg of zanaflex? All at night too?
Take medication only: as directed by prescriber. Xanax (alprazolam), Klonopin (clonazepam), and baclofen increase sedation. Baclofen and Zanaflex are for muscle spasticity. Xanax and Klonopin are both benzodiazepines for anxiety. Your prescriber must review your condition and outline a dosing plan for each medication indicated. Best regards for relief. ...Read more

Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) & Hydrocodo: Hello. If you allergic reactions to either OR both of these such as difficulty swallowing, tongue swelling, difficulty breathing- then the combo can be fatal. For many patients, taking these two together makes them real sleepy. Normally don't see 20mg of cyclobenzaprine taken at one time. 15mg of hydrocodone sound like 1.5 pills taken at one time. Stagger these meds if you must take these doses. ...Read more
Hard to say: Since it depends if we are talking about acutely, where it takes twice as much Clonazepam to equal the clinical effects of lorazepam. However, once Clonazepam reaches it's steady state, it is actually twice a potent as lorazepam. So, initially you might need 3 mg of Clonazepam four times a day for the first day to feel the same effects, but you quickly have to reduce down to 1 mg three time/d. ...Read more
My mother is taking seroquel...ambien and xanax (alprazolam). 200mg seroquel and 120 pills of 1mg xanax (alprazolam) not sure of the dosage of ambien. Is this okay?
Too many sedatives: Without knowing the exact regimen my best comment is to note that care must be taken when using multiple medications with sedative effects. I assume the Ambien is for sleep and the Xanax (alprazolam) is for anxiety. I would argue both are short-term interventions and she will be best served if alternative approaches are explored. The only thing I can say with certainty is that she should NOT drink alcohol! ...Read more
