1200 mg 3-4x/day: Gabapentin is a peculiar medication. The absorption is not linear with the dosage. With each increase, you absorb less of the increase. 600 mg 8x/day is more than 1200 mg 4x/day i your body! this effect plateaus around 1200 mg per dose. However, that said, dosage limits are often reached symptomatically; ie, lethargy, sedation, tremor, trouble walking. Balance/coordination problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you take 75 mg diphenhydramine HCl (tylenol (acetaminophen) simply sleep) with .5 mg diazepam (valium)?
Probably: I think you mean 5 mg of diazepam, not .5. 75 mg of diphenydramine is a bit high. Tegether, they synergize for additional sedation. Alone, it is probably not enough to be a problem, but if combined with other sedating agents or alcohol, you would be taking a risk, possibly a serious one. ...Read more
It depends.: Some people may be very sensitive to low doses of meds, especially if you have liver disease or your liver enzymes are slow metabolizers of drugs.

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
Tolerating?: Everyone has a different tolerance to medications. Both of the above can be very sedating. For those with a high tolerance sedation is not an issue.

Depends: on your treatment goals. Typically doses can go higher (200 mg +) if treating depression. But there is a wide dosage range that is therapeutic, in my experience, since every person is different. If you feel better on 100 mg. and have no side effects, that's the best dose for you. Don't worry about a "standard" dose. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
