Increase of Abilify (aripiprazole) caused severe sedation. Need to be able to focus on school but can't function. Can i skip a dose and resume at lower dose to reduce serum levels quickly? Doc auth dose decrease.
Get details from doc: When it comes to these types of questions no one on a network such as this should be looked at as more authoritative than your own physician. There are far too many variables in something like this for anyone to tell you "what" or "how" to make a medication change. Call your doctor's office and ask them for the detail on how to reduce dosage. You will be glad you did. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please realize that: your primary medical decision maker (physician if you will) is ALWAYS yourself. Just because meds are Rx'ed, this does not mean they are a good choice or will be effective, vs. harmful, to your best interests. Psychotropic meds are Rx'ed for ease (Doc & client), affect mode/symptoms but never solve the real problem(s), actually only add problems & commonly make problem solving more difficult. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers

I just need to know if a low does antidepressant with Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) helps to not get the depression when you go off the Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) for weekends?
Off-label: This would be an off-label use of an antidepressant. Psychiatrists sometimes do use medications in off-label ways, depending on circumstances. Still, antidepressants used only on weekends would not likely help much, since they usually require consistent dosing for 4-6 weeks to show effect. ...Read more
I'm currently on 20mg of Lexapro (escitalopram) but if now seems ineffective. Can I increase to 25mg safely (break a pill) to see if that will work better?
Lexapro (escitalopram) dose: Assume you are taking Lexapro (escitalopram) for anxiety and/or depression. While it is reasonable to increase dose to 25 mg, always discuss dosage change first with prescribing doctor, who knows your symptoms and medical history best. I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more
Taking primidone for tremors. Supposed to increase from 25mg to 50 mg tomorrow. It makes me dizzy will this go away or should I ask for new meds?
Slow titration: Primidone may be side effect prone, but with continuation of medication, these side effects can subside. Continuing on the same dose for a longer period prior to titrating upwards may be one strategy to lessen side effects and improve tolerability. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
None proven.: There is no proven product that will do that. First you need to figure out why at 43 you have these problems. Your GP may be able to rule out underlying physical causes and address them. A decreased libido and fatigue can also be a sign of depression, anxiety, stress. The sexual problems by themselves can also indicate relationship problems. A psych eval may help. Good luck! ...Read more

Survival kit: Make up a travel kit to help you stay healthy. Pack protein bars, raw nuts, dried fruits, dark chocolate and a good multivitamin.

Bring a jump rope and jump outside every chance you get. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It can "rev" you up: Any of the SSRIs can have paradoxical effect of revving people up or "wiring them."sometimes those effects will wear off within a few days to a week and sometimes they don't wear off and sometimes they get worse. If you are uncomfortable I think a call to your doctor is a good idea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it bad to have your AC on in your car full blast and then get off to 108 degrees f? Can you get sick changing your body temperature so rapidly?
Not really: This appears to be similar to hot and cold showers, which are very healthy. It increases and decreases your arterial diameter. It may actually be good for you. But I am not aware of any study that has looked at that. You may find something on google scholar. With any underlying disease, such as high blood pressure, you must check with your doc! ...Read more
I am taking clonazepam 0.25mg the most of 2x per week to prevent panic attacks. Like when i go to stores or drive long to make me relaxed. Bad idea?
As needed: At that low dose and at that low frequency, you are probably quite safe and probably would not suffer withdrawal if you did stop. So, if it is working well - don't worry. In fact, if you are otherwise okay, that's good. But if you have other concerns you might consider a CBT therapist to learn skills for avoiding, reducing and managing stress, anxiety, etc. Best! ...Read more
