Amitriptyline 10mg Alcohol
Would taking 10mg diazepam, 30mg remeron 10mg tyrptizol and 300mg lyrica (pregabalin) at night cause a hangover the following day. Thanks?
Am concerned: Is this being prescribed by one doctor? It may be dangerous polypharmacy. All of these drugs are sedating, and have many potential harmful interactions. They certainly could make someone feel hung-over, groggy and sedated in the morning. The dose of amitryptaline is pretty low, but the other drugs are in full dose and could be too much for you. Talk to your doctor and pharmacist. ...Read more
I'm taking 200mg Wellbutrin, 100mg Zoloft, 60mg Cymbalta & 50mg Nortryptiline. Also 1mg Xanax (alprazolam) x 3 and 10mg Oxycodone x6. Still depressed & anxious.
It depends: In my practice unrecognized Bipolar Disorder, Substance Use Disorders, and PTSD are toward the top of what might be contributing to your ongoing disability. If you have access to a psychiatrist with addiction medicine expertise, likely they can help. Finding competent help is problematic. Please continue to seek help. Not easy! There is help.

TramadolAmitriptylin: The reported prevalence of serotonin syndrome is unknown possibly because of underdiagnosis or misdiagnosis. However, it is a potentially life-threatening condition with symptoms that can appear from 30 minutes to 48 hours after a new serotonergic medication is taken. Any drug or combinations of drugs that induce an excess of 5-ht can cause serotonin syndrome. Rec.: talk to your treating doctor. ...Read more

Can I take Tylenol3 and naproxen together with 2mg of prazosin, 750mg of divalproex sodium, 10 mg clomipramine, 200 mg of quetiapine and clonazepam?
Yes but: Your medical regimen is becoming complicated and you risk encouraging a pattern of self-medicating. While there is an important place for medications in helping brains function better and people feeling better, be careful not to fall into the "chemical coper" trap. Discuss this with prescriber. I suggest having only one. ...Read more
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
Is it possible to overdose on 5x7.5mg zopiclone, 10x30mg morphine, 10x300mg pregabalin, 5x10mg Abilify (aripiprazole) and 5x150mg venlafaxine?
In most people: It depends on the individual. All of that serotonin can put a patient with bipolar disease at risk of a manic episode. If it hasn't happened, it wont. Excess serotonin can cause rapid heart rate, anxiety and shakiness. I personally try to avoid using multiple drugs that work the same, since it can lead to toxic side effects. I like using drugs like abilify (aripiprazole) if I am treating mood disorder ...Read more
40mg citalopram in am, 4mg klonopin during day, 900mg gabapentin w dinner, 25mg seroquel @ night. Can i take 10mg of Ambien (zolpidem) with the seroquel?
Took 20 of Lorazepam 0.5mg Effects? Dangerous? HTN PCOS G.A.D Depressive Disorder Zestoretic 12-10mg Ativan0.5mg Zoloft (sertraline) 50mg
Go to ER: Ativan (lorazepam) is a sedative/hypnotic so yes it is dangerous since it will knock you out for hours! And if you took them intentionally (as a suicidal attempt) as opposed to accidentally, you certainly need to seek help for better treatment of your depression! GO TO ER , ask a friend/family/neighbor to take you there! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Best To Avoid: Celexa (citalopram) is an antidepressant and alcohol is a depressant. Common sense tells us to avoid alcohol while treating depression, otherwise one agent will cancel the other. I have always considered alcohol the "original medication". It calms you, gives you confidence, stimulates you and puts you to sleep and can even be unused as an antiseptic. If you are unable to stop drinking talk to your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not recommended: Psychoactive medications can cause significant central nervous system dysregulation when alcohol is consumed. Not only would you experience potential side effects such as dizziness, excess sedation and drops in blood pressure, but also impaired cognitive functioning. This includes poor judgement and disinhibition. Alcohol can also interfere with full efficacy of these medications. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Take 20mg of Celexa a day and 20mg Valium for panic disorder. Doctor added 15mg Remeron (mirtazapine). Can Remeron (mirtazapine) with Celexa cause Serotonin Syndrome?
Yes-watch carefully!: If you have any of these: confusion, hallucination, seizure, extreme changes in blood pressure, increased heart rate, fever, excessive sweating, shivering or shaking, blurred vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, incoordination, stomach cramp, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea - call provider ASAP and even consider ER. It can be life-threatening. Before starting, talk about it. Talk Tx can help! ...Read more
How much time should be inbetween a dose of 100mg gabapentin and: 5/325 hydrocodone, 10mg cyclobenzaprine, or 1mg xanax (alprazolam)? Gabapentin scares me.
Gabapentin scares U?: Really? Because the hydrocodone and its pharmacology would worry me more. I have seen people get side effects on small doses of gabapentin for sure. But I've never seen them have trouble stopping compared to Hydrocodone. You should not take all those drugs together. I think that's a lot (especially if you happen to be petite?). Check with your doctor for rationale dosing schedule to following. ...Read more
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
I am on a low dose of tramadol. 50-100mg per day. Is it still safe to have alcohol ? Just stopped taking amitriptyline last week. 10mg per day.
Not recommended: Tramadol and alcohol are depressant of the central nervous system. Mixing tramadol with alcohol could lead to drowsiness to severe depression of brain activity, coma, and ultimately death. Tramadol has a prolonged half-life about 7 hours. It is still in your system for at least 10 hours. Is not recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not recommended: It is not recommended to drink alcohol when taking medications, including Elavil/amitriptyline. The liver is responsible for metabolizing both alcohol and medications, adding additional burden especially in those with medical problems. If taken as an anti-depressant, the goals of treatment with Elavil are being undone by drinking alcohol, which is by definition a nervous system depressant. ...Read more
I had 1 beer several hours ago and take 30mg amytriptaline at night before bed for anxiety. I read you're not supposed to drink alcohol will I be ok?
Please be careful...: You should be ok from a physical standpoint - one standard drink takes about 2 hours to metabolize; However, it is strongly recommended to avoid alcohol while taking amytriptyline, as the combination can increase drowsiness (putting you or others at risk for injury) and alcohol can reduce the effectiveness of the medication. If necessary, please be sure to get a sober ride from someone you trust. ...Read more
Does alcohol cause insomnia?Im on amitryptyline and take a glass wine and next day i couldnt sleep, can't relax its feels like tremor when try to sleep
Alcohol insomnia: Yes alcohol can cause insomnia, especially as it wears off. You can get a rebound effect. Also some people get paradoxical reactions. So where a substance can relax many people, there are some people who become more anxious. And you are taking prescribed medication that could be interacting. You should speak to your prescribing doctor who will probably advise you not to drink alcohol. ...Read more

A number of things: The condition you take it for might become more apparent. Low dose Amitriptyline is often used for chronic pain complaints, like headache, so that could become more evident. Most people take Amitriptyline at bedtime because it is sedating, so you might have some trouble falling asleep. Amitriptyline can cause dry mouth and constipation, so you could notice the reverse of those when you stop it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Tapering off 10mg amitriptyline, have taken 3 nights of half a pill, should I continue for longer or take more days worth still?
Psych drugs: this is a drug that affects chemicals in your brain. You are on a relatively small dose so you might tolerate a quick taper of three days, but I always recommend at least 2weeks to taper of this sort of drug so you don't get rebound symptoms that might affect your mood, among other things. ...Read more
Can fertile xx be taken with 10mg amitriptyline does fertile xx have stuff in that increases seritinon levels as that is what amitriptyline does ?
Fertile XX: If i may speak truthfully, no one knows what fertile xx does because it is not a controlled or regulated substance, so no one has bothered studying it. It is a 'natural' product said to contain black cohosh, chasteberry, and others in "therapeutic amounts." even the manufacturer doesn't specify how-much-of-what is in it. I think it's unlikely it affects serotonin, or anything else... ...Read more

See answer: Depending on the reason for which you are taking amitriptyline, you may feel that it is not working for you straightaway. It can take a week or two after starting this treatment before the effect builds up and 4-6 weeks before you feel the full benefit. Starting doses are usually small to minimize side effects and if not helping, your doctor may elect to increase the dose. Stay the course. ...Read more
Elavil (amitriptyline) effects: Amitriptyline is the generic form of elavil (amitriptyline). It is a tricyclic antidepressant medication that has anticholinergic activity. I am not sure what effect you are having but urinary retention can occur. Discuss in detail with your prescribing health professional any difficulties you are experiencing. ...Read more
It depends: The safety of this combination depends on the doses of both medications, since they can affect each other's metabolism in your body. Most often amitriptylene would be kept at a low dose (50 mg or less) and your response monitored carefully. If your doctor is prescribing and monitoring in this way, then the combination may be useful and safe for you. ...Read more
Meds: You don't state why taking in my experience in pain management, this combination is used for migraine prophylaxis. I'm not telling you what do but in my pts i recomment take amitryt.
