Max daily dose gabapentin ?

1200 mg 3-4x/day: Gabapentin is a peculiar medication. The absorption is not linear with the dosage.

What is the maximum anafranil (clomipramine) dosage for OCD resistant patients?

What is the maximum anafranil (clomipramine) dosage for OCD resistant patients?

250mg/day: Maximum recommended daily dose is 250mg, but some psychiatrist may push a bit further. If at 250mg/day and symptoms not controlled, pushing higher dose is not likely to benefit. Adding other medication, change of meds, or combining with cognitive/behavioral therapy probably is a better way to go then pushing too much of one drug--just my humble opinion. Consult your doc. Best of luck to you. ...Read more

Bipolar(controlled -lamictal, carbamazepine), anxiety-semi-under control (lorazepam, temazepam, cymbalta) and ADD problematic- considering Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ?

Bipolar(controlled -lamictal, carbamazepine), anxiety-semi-under control (lorazepam, temazepam, cymbalta)  and ADD problematic- considering Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ?

So much medication: It might be necessary to take some drugs but I question the risks already and adding the new one is especially bad w/ cymbalta (duloxetine). It can cause severe anxiety! Also serotonin syndrome. Almost all of your meds combine to cause a host of symptoms like dizziness, confusion and general impairment. Please consider a good psych eval and adding good psychotherapy to lower need for Rx and help them work! ...Read more

Not OK: Haven't we met before over this question? Why is a 17 y.o. taking ALL that medication? What's going on? I assume the Penicillin's temporary? But HYDROCODONE+ Ibuprofen? What type of pains need all that @ your age? Prazosin for.....nightmares? And hydroxyzine for itching or nausea?
