Ppi dosing: The maximum doses of each ppi are equipotent in reducing acid. Going higher than these doses impart no greater benefit and should not be exceeded. Prilosec/omeprazole: 20 BID.

Can i take 1000 mgs Depakote 10 mgs Valium 25 mgs doxepin and 300 mgs Trileptal together at bed time?

Can i take 1000 mgs Depakote 10 mgs Valium 25 mgs doxepin and 300 mgs Trileptal together at bed time?

There is a drug : Interaction between trileptal and valium. Valium blood levels rise in the presence of trieptal, so it is generally recommended practice to lower the valium dose while on trileptal. All of the other medications are safe to be taken together. I would not take the full 25 mg of valium along with the combination however. Talk to your prescribing physician about this. Best wishes. ...Read more

Yes: there are no contraindications with any medication, as far as I know. Magnesium is found in many foods, and magnesium deficiency has become more common, particularly with use of drugs like omeprazole (Prilosec), esomeprazole (Nexium) and similar drugs which markedly reduce stomach acid and impede magnesium absorption. ...Read more

Calcium scan zero. Cholesterol over 300 without meds. Taking 80 Lipitor (atorvastatin) 20 Zetia. Dr. wants me stop Zetia half Lipitor (atorvastatin). Should I?

Calcium scan zero. Cholesterol over 300 without meds. Taking 80 Lipitor (atorvastatin) 20 Zetia. Dr. wants me stop Zetia half Lipitor (atorvastatin). Should I?

I'm not too sure.: Unless your HDL is really really really high or unless you were experiencing some side effect of one of those medications, a total of 300 sounds just too high, especially at your age (no offense). I would continue the medications in a preventive sense. ...Read more

Can you take together 10 mg lexapro (escitalopram) , 25 mg lamotrigine 1200 mg fish oil and 1000 mg acetaminofen ?

Can you take together 10 mg lexapro (escitalopram) , 25 mg lamotrigine 1200 mg fish oil and 1000 mg acetaminofen ?

Yes, but...: Lexapro, (escitalopram) Lamictal, and Fish Oil are often co-prescribed. If fish oil is being used for therapeutic benefit, its good to know the EPA content of the capsules. EPA (not total fish oil weight) needs to be around 1000 to 1500 mg per day to impact mood (FYI). Acetaminophen at 1000 mg - as an occasional dose - is fine to take s the above. Frequent use, though, is to be avoided. ...Read more

Taking 1000 mgs Depakote 10 mgs Valium 10 mgs Ambien at bed time. Can i still take 5 mgs of saphris (asenapine)?

Ask your doctor: Dd your doctor prescribe these to be taken all at once? The combo of valium and Ambien is deadly. Please don't take them together tonight, and call your doctor in the morning. As for Depakote and saphris, (asenapine) do take these as going without could cause a relapse of your bipolar disorder. Be well. ...Read more

How far apart to safely take Prednisone, Aspirin, Plavix, Metoprolol, Pepcid (famotidine) in AM? And Prednisone, Pepcid (famotidine), Metoprolol in PM?
