I had a hair follicle test that showed positive for methamphetamines. The drugs I take are Zoloft, vyvanse, trazadone, and Wellbutrin. Why??

I had a hair follicle test that showed positive for methamphetamines. The drugs I take are Zoloft, vyvanse, trazadone, and Wellbutrin. Why??

Most likely Vyvanse: Vyvanse is a prodrug that is metabolized into amphetamine by its passage through the liver (its chemical name is lisdexamfetamine), so it is not unusual. Wellbutrin is also a very similar molecule to amphetamine, but I am not sure whether it would show up as a positive in a hair follicle test. ...Read more

Psychiatric Medicati: Blood level of trazodone will ^ on this med combo. Chance of seizures may also occur. BUT, this combination is used together often. There is a potential for a drug interaction but that does not mean that one will occur. You will likely be fine. Try not to worry. Make sure that you only take psychotropic medications that were prescribed for you. ...Read more

I'm concern for my 5 month unborn child I'm pregnant with. I've been constantly stress medication which is 40 milligram of Celexa (citalopram) and 250 milligrams of bupropion and in at night 50 milligram trazodone?

Concerned about you: The combination of these 3 medications is kind of risky, they can interact together causing irregular heart beats, you are almost maxed out on doses, why on bupropion? Is it for smoke cessation? If you are worried about your baby you shouldn't smoke to start with or be around smokers, I know it's hard to quit but much harder on your unborn child, celexa (citalopram) is cautioned in last trimester, c ur MD ...Read more

I have been taking 225mg of venlafaxine and 50mg of trazodone for a few months now. The doctor has added 150mg of bupropion a week ago. My friends say that I'm extremely moody and irritable and thinking more negatively. Could the new medicines cause this?

Yes: It's very important to communicate any changes like this to your physician, which I hope is a psychiatrist since you're on multiple psychopharmacological agents. Did the moodiness & irritablity develop after the wellbutrin (bupropion) was added? Are you sleeping? Do you, yourself notice a change? The wellbutrin (bupropion) could be very activating for you. Please see your doctor and see what s/he recommends. ...Read more

Would it be a good idea to take trazodone for anxiety?

Would it be a good idea to take trazodone for anxiety?

Might consider: Trazadone may be useful for sleeping if taken at bedtime, and a good night's rest may help alleviate tension. However, not perhaps the best direct choice for anxiety, as other drugs may provide far more potent benefit in this regard (such as alprazolam, various beta blockers, misc sedative tranquilizers).

Can I.take oxcycodone, trazadone and tylenol3 together?

#3, Traz & Oxycodone: Hello. No reason to be taking both #3 and oxycodone together. Stick to one agent. Keep the use to the bare minimum because of the known short AND long term side effects. Trazadone is normally sedating and thus taken at night. For some patients, #3 or oxycodone taken at same time as trazadone can cause increased sedation and other side effects. Talk to your prescriber about staggered doses of meds. ...Read more

Can I take 100mg trazadone with 10mg ambien (zolpidem)?

Can I take 100mg trazadone with 10mg ambien (zolpidem)?

Probably ok: Check with your prescribing doctor before mixing medicines. There's no special danger in using these together — I sometimes prescribe both, as Ambien (zolpidem) helps mainly with falling asleep and trazodone with staying asleep. But since they are both sleeping pills, the effect is additive and there's a risk of over-sedation. ...Read more
