I'm currently taking risperdone, Artane, Lexapro, (escitalopram) and Lamictal. Is it safe to use passion flower with those for insomnia?

Talk to your doctor: In general, I recommend patients to not combine their psychiatric medications with herbals. Based upon my review of Passion flower, increased drowsiness is the main risk.

I have Parkinson's and I am on artane, and sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa). Is there something that can help my inner tremor. It's really bad in morning.

I have Parkinson's and I am on artane, and sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa). Is there something that can help my inner tremor. It's really bad in morning.

Internal tremor: Dopamine agonists like rotigatine, ropinirole ; Pramipexole may help. Amantadine can curb dyskinesia from sinemet, (carbidopa and levodopa) but may not help much for inner tremor. Younger people often tolerate higher doses of artane/ trihexyphenidyl than elderly, the drug of choice for pd-related tremor. Beta blockers like Propranolol may also reduce this tremor. Ask your neurologist for guidance. Good luck. ...Read more

There is no role for lioresal, (baclofen) and Artane is literally "poison" and is not used in the usa. Choose the doc who recommended sifrol. ...Read more
