No alcohol: Alcohol is a poison and it never did anybody any good, ever. So stay away from it. It is doubly bad to mix alcohol and medications.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

I've had insomnia for as long as I've known... Off whack sleeping patterns. Now I'm sleeping during the day and awake at night. What could help me ??
Take all at the same time daily 40mg fluoxetine for panic disorder 180 verapamil for cluster headache and 20 nexium (esomeprazole). How long after can I have a beer?
Best Practice...: May be best not to have a beer though we all recognize that is unrealistic for some people. However, studies have shown that people with moderate to severe depression and/or anxiety can be even more treatment resistant with just one drink (alcohol is a CNS depressant with increased anxiety as it's metabolized). That being said, one beer (12oz @ 5%) may be ok with these meds but not recommended. ...Read more

I have frequent insomnia. Only get 3-4 hours sleep a day. Dr gave me klonopin (clonazepam) to help. Can i take this occasionally? Any risk of serious side effects?
Klonopin (clonazepam) & sleep: With insomnia, it's very important to discover its cause.

Been taking Nyquil and it caused headache. Can I take Ibuprofen after 12 hours to reduce the headache?
Taken clonazepam (0.5mg) (klonopin) 1-2 times a week (sometimes 3) for a few weeks to help insomnia. Can i safely stop taking anytime at this dose?
Yes....: It is not so much the dose, but the frequency that let's me say that. If you really have not taken it more than 2 or 3 ( at most) times in a week for a few weeks, then you should not have a problem. However, even at this dose(0.5), if you were taking it almost every night, even for 3 weeks, it might be difficult to stop taking it. ...Read more
