Alprazolam Xr 1mg

Caution!: Omeprazole raises the blood levels of Celexa which can lead to serious side effects. In general the highest dose of Celexa while on Omeprazole is 20mg per day. You really need to ask your doctor or prescriber to guide you as I do not know enough about your general health. As far as alternating xanax (alprazolam) and Celexa my opinion is that this is not a good idea. Celexa is taken every day. ...Read more

Is it common for a person to be prescribed Xanax (alprazolam) 1mg, lamictal XR 25- 100mg, seroquel 150 & 200mg , & luvox 100mg tablets on a daily basis ?
It : It is common for a person to take several medications. While the final decision of what medications to prescribe or not prescribe rests with the treating physician who has thoroughly examined the patient, it is important to keep in mind that the frequency of side effects depends on the number of medications that the person is taking. I cannot comment on the specifics or the suitability of this medication regimen for this particular case because I have not examined the patient and do not know the relevant medical history. However, the medications that you listed have the following main uses: xanax (alprazolam) is to treat anxiety, Lamictal is to treat seizures and may be beneficial in preventing bipolar illness, seroquel is to treat schizophrenia and several other conditions, including bipolar illness, and Luvox is an antidepressant that belongs to the ssri class.

While : While sometimes patient`s might need a combination of psychotropic medications to effectively address their symptoms, this should be done under the careful guidance of a psychiatrist. If this combination is making you excessively sedated and negatively impacting your quality of life, it`s time to make changes. There are other options without those side effects. Also please be aware of the significant drug-drug interactions with luvox, which might be increasing the xanax (alprazolam) and seroquel levels causing excessive sedation. Please talk to your psychiatrist asap and carefully review your medication regimen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
