Does klonopin (clonazepam) medication for anxiety cause lower hemoglobin and hemacrit levels thankyou?
For the most part no: Drug induced anemia - low red blood cell counts - from klonopin (clonazepam) is exceptionally rare, basically case reportable(meaning it's so rare that cases of this are published for doctors to better understand). While there are reported incidents, in general, anemia isn't felt to be a common side effect at all. ...Read more
Paxil (paroxetine): Nope.Get a more detailed answer ›
Well ...: In theory, Wellbutrin (bupropion) could cause hyperprolactinemia but in all honesty, I've never seen it occur in clinical practice. Also, Klonopin (a medication that works on the GABA system) can actually inhibit prolactin release. So, short answer is ... It's possible but very unlikely. Hope that helps! ...Read more
No increase in Ca: The benzodiazepines act to depress neuronal excitability through the inhibitory GABA neurotransmission system in the CNS. The resulting increase in the concentration of Cl- ions in the post-synaptic neuron immediately hyperpolarizes this neuron, not Ca-ions. no increase in Ca levels. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can the anti-depressant, cymbalta, (duloxetine) affect testosterone, LH, FSH, PRL or TSH levels in any way?
Here are some ..: The causes for low-T are many, can be primary or secondary. Over the last decade, more awareness in drug-induced HPG axis dysfunction has emerged leading to low-T. Now, it is increasingly known all drugs exerting their effects on CNS will in time affect HPG axis, notably the opiate-related drugs. For cymbalta (duloxetine), up to present, it does cause low-T in few patients, but reported at 0.07%. ...Read more
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
Prozac (fluoxetine) and Klonopin: They are different classes of medications, but for each individual, some differences could occur when taken together. If Prozac (fluoxetine) calms anxiety(which is probably the goal)then it may feel like the Klonopin hit you harder. I always recommend keeping a log when you make any changes in med or dose. It is too easy to confuse the variables(example-if you were sleep deprived night before).But talk w yr do ...Read more
Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?
Probably Not: Especially for someone who is young. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't even get metabolized by the liver. That being said, it makes sense to monitor you liver w/regular lab-work & to ask yourself if exercise, nutrition, & meditation can help your symptoms & reduce your pill burden. ...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
Why would 10mg celexa (citalopram) make your blood serotonin level low? When i wasn't on celexa (citalopram) my serotonin level was high?
CSF correlation?: CSF serotonin levels may not correlate with blood levels, and some labs are very unreliable also. Celexa (citalopram) inhibits the reuptake of serotonin back into pre-synaptic neurons -- increasing synaptic amounts. This is one of the ways Celexa (citalopram) works in depression. Because of the blood-brain barrier your CSF level may be higher than blood level. CSF levels are obtainable by lumbar puncture only. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
