Abilify Alcohol Interaction
Do any of these drug combinations work? Prozac abilify, (aripiprazole) Prozac zyprexa, wellbutrin zyprexa, for schizophrenia.
Not a great combo: As a rough rule of thumb, Effexor (venlafaxine) will double the effects of alcohol, and alcohol will double the side effects of effexor (venlafaxine). So the best recommendation is skip the alcohol. At the very least, keep this formula in mind. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Too many meds: Taking all of these medications together is not a good idea. You run the risk of serotonin syndrome, a potentially lethal condition and you are at increased risk of seizures. It sounds like you must have a difficult case of depression and anxiety and I suggest you talk with you doctor about a better combination. Cymbalta (duloxetine) and Wellbutrin are both antidepressants and you should be on one or the other ...Read more
Yes, they do.: When fluvoxamine is taken with grapefruit juice, or even taken some time apart, the grapefruit juice may cause the fluvoxamine to build up in your body. This increased amount of fluvoxamine will have a greater effect of both desired and undesired effects. It is advised to avoid grapefruit juice while on this medication. Why take chances? And i really like good grapefruit juice. ;-). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The interaction between klonopin (clonazepam) and tegretol:tegretol lowers klonopin (clonazepam) by 30% -does klonopin (clonazepam) raise tegretol ?
Not great combo: Concomitant administration of clonazepam (Klonopin) and carbamazepine (Tegretol) resulted in a 22% increase in clonazepam clearance and a 20.5% decrease in carbamazepine clearance. Carbamazepine is well known to induce its own metabolism as well as the metabolism of other meds making it difficult to manage. Consult provider. Bottom line - Klonopin is not likely to raise Tegretol levels. ...Read more
Any negative effects of buspar (buspirone)? Alcohol interactions? I'm on propranolol. Synthroid. And vitamin d daily.
All meds have some: No known interactions between buspar, (buspirone) Propranolol and synthroid. There are cautions for known sensitivity to that drug class, recent use of MAO inhibitors (a type of antidepressant) or use in the setting of kidney or liver problems. Generally well-tolerated, but here is a link to possible side effects: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/drug-information/dr600277/dsection=side%2deffects. ...Read more
Is there an drug interaction with Haldol, (haloperidol) Olanzapine, Zyprexa and the antidepressant Wellbutrin?
Yes there are: Zyprexa (olanzapine) is the trade name for Olanzapine so you only have 3 unique drugs listed though some would argue that brand & generic named drugs are technically 2 distinct forms of chemical compounds. There are several SIGNIFICANT reactions (heart rhythm, sedation, neurological issues) that could occur with these drugs so you should talk things over with your doctor if there are concerns or side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
