Please tell me what I should know about asendin (amoxapine)?

Please tell me what I should know about asendin (amoxapine)?

Asendin (amoxapine): Mechanism of action in the management of depressive disorders is unknown but may involve inhibition of reuptake of norepinephrine and to a lesser extent serotonin by Amoxapine and its active metabolites, 8-hydroxyamoxapine and 7-hydroxyamoxapine.Amoxapine is a derivative of the antipsychotic agent Loxapine and has dopamine-receptor blocking properties; may possess some antipsychotic activity. Specific side effects are dry mouth blurred vision lightheadedness dizziness and constipation as well as a longer-term risk of developing tardiva dyskinesia. As with all antidepressants there is a risk of increased suicidal thinking as the dose is started. It is an older antidepressant that is not currently use very often but certainly can be very effective if nothing else has been effective for you.Best wishes.Source: www.Drugs.Com.

Molecular targeting: These agents are designed to selectively knock out key pathways your tumor may use to grow. Presumably you already had your tumor tested for these different mutations. Ask the doctor offering these options to explain their rationale. These are investigational studies and many of the treatment costs may be covered-ask. ...Read more

Dr. Tom heston faafp, fasnc, facnm is it ok to take wellbutrin, pristiq, and savella (milnacipran) together?

Dr. Tom heston faafp, fasnc, facnm is it ok to take wellbutrin, pristiq, and savella (milnacipran) together?

I am not Dr Heston, : And in my opinion, that combination is very good as long as those medications work together to relieve the symptoms of depression, anxiety and chronic pain. When the illness is severe enough, combining several agents is more effective, causes less side effects, although it can be more costly and cumbersome to maintain the treatment. Hope this answer to your question while awaiting for dr heston's. ...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?

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 more

Is metformin hydrochloride (glucophage xr) nephro toxic?

Is metformin hydrochloride (glucophage xr) nephro toxic?

No: Metformin is not known to be toxic to the kidneys. The concern may be when a patient has naturally kidney function and they take metformin. That person may then be at (rare, but still documented) risk of a condition called lactic acidosis - a potentially dangerous, body-wide build-up of lactic acid that interferes with the delivery with oxygen. ...Read more

I take dilzem 240mg x 1, dilzem 120mg x 1, victoza (liraglutide) 12mg x 1, digoxin 250 micg, gliclazide 80mg x 1, allopurinol 300mg x 1 & warfarin do they interact?

Extra care: Several medications can interact with warfarin including Diltiazem and digoxin. It does not mean you cannnot take warfarin but your dose has to be regulated even more closely when a new medication is started. Also it is important to check digoxin level when a new medicine such as warfarin is started. In addition monitor your blood sugars more closely with new medicines so it is not too low. ...Read more

My doctor gave me Zoloft 50mg risperdal 0.25mg trazadon 50mg Buspar (buspirone) 10mg twice a day ativan 1mg twice isn't 2 match don't make interaction?

My doctor gave me Zoloft 50mg risperdal 0.25mg trazadon 50mg Buspar (buspirone) 10mg twice a day ativan 1mg twice isn't 2 match don't make interaction?

All of those meds: Are used together in many people, although starting them all at once is not common, in my experience. Not knowing what kind of symptoms you were having, what your previous medical history and kinds of treatment, i cannot say whether it's too much or not. You should not drive or operate dangerous machinery until you know how these medications effect you. There are no specific interactions. ...Read more
