Multiple meds safe?: U mention that ur doc did prescribe all of the meds you've been instructed to take, so s/he knows of each med ur taking, and must feel that adding the newest med - wellbutrin, (bupropion) is both safe & in ur best interest. The meds you mentioned are frequently used in concert & have no interactions. The best person to discuss risks & benefits of ur med regimen with is ur doc.

Is it safe to take lithium 1200mg Zoloft 50mg seroquel 500mg Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg daily?
Possibly: You should be receiving the care of a psychiatrist and if you are getting appropriate management for your condition including periodic blood work checking for serum lithium levels hemoglobin a1c and blood lipid levels you should be fine. It may be helpful to get an ekg at some point to check for first degree heart block that can sometimes happen with lithium administration. ...Read more
Bipolar(controlled -lamictal, carbamazepine), anxiety-semi-under control (lorazepam, temazepam, cymbalta) and ADD problematic- considering Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ?
So much medication: It might be necessary to take some drugs but I question the risks already and adding the new one is especially bad w/ cymbalta (duloxetine). It can cause severe anxiety! Also serotonin syndrome. Almost all of your meds combine to cause a host of symptoms like dizziness, confusion and general impairment. Please consider a good psych eval and adding good psychotherapy to lower need for Rx and help them work! ...Read more
Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) and Diazepam: Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) can cause anger issues by triggering mania or hypomania. Diazepam can cause anger issues by its disinhibiting properties in the frontal lobes. Buspar does not have this effect and neither does seroquel. Seroquel if anything has an anti-anger effect. Buspirone lessens anger by knocking out anxious irritability. Best wishes and have a happy new year. ...Read more

No. They just help you modify your inside and outside environments with counseling, lifestyle modification without obsession/overindulgence, judicious use of drug for optimal self-healing leading to optimal functional recovery with your own residual energy/ability. ...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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Many antidepressants can cause constipation, and unless something else has changed at the same time that you started the paxil, (paroxetine) it might be the cause. We recommend increasing fluid intake, dietary fiber intake (fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grain products); and if that's not enough, a fiber supplement and stool softener, laxatives should be a last resort. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can be taken: Together. No issues with this combination!Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes but: This seems a bit much for anyone. Is there a way that you can speak to your doctor about streamlining your meds. The doc is treating you for bipolar issues,anxiety, depression, and sleep disorder. I suggest that you see if this doc or another can put you on a regimen that might help you sleep and still take care of the problem. Have the doc consider remeron (mirtazapine) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
only: Yes, only if it was prescribed for you by your dr. It is not uncommon to combine those meds which clearly treat different conditions; if two different doctors prescribed them for you, i would make sure both are aware of all the meds you take. Consult your dr. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Take 2.5mg zyprexa to slow racing OCD thoughts . Also 50mg pristiq (desvenlafaxine). Sedation side effects (sleep 10.5 hours). I exercise and watch diet. Risks?
Risks: It sounds like you may be over-sedated with your medications, and you may need an adjustment in dose. If you're keeping your food plan contained and are exercising, the risks of weight gain and type ii diabetes are less than they would be otherwise. This could become harder to manage as you age. Avoid processed foods; focus on lean protein, veggies, fruits, complex carbs, healthy fats, etc. ...Read more
