Can I take abilify, (aripiprazole) Prozac, ativan, trazadone and lithium together?

What do you recommend if I take prozac, strattera, (atomoxetine) ativan, seroquel, and trileptal. Safe?

Sounds bipolar: Bipolar disorder can be difficult to treat. Generally I would advise an attempt to get off of antidepressants (in your case Prozac). Treatment is very individual and may vary with the season (although I here not as seasonal in LA as in New England). As with any complex regimen, is it working, don't change, get regular med checks and yearly blood work. ...Read more

Daily hypoglycemic attacks?!?! I eat once a day -an overdo ativan n Advil (ibuprofen) pm. And my CNS overworked

Daily hypoglycemic attacks?!?! I eat once a day -an overdo ativan n Advil (ibuprofen) pm. And my CNS overworked

Be Kind To Yourself: Blood glucose levels are influenced by when and what we eat. Eating once a day is unhealthy and can lead to problems with one's blood glucose level. Symptoms of "hypoglycemic attacks" may include anxiety, shakiness, and confusion. I assume Ativan and advil (ibuprofen) pm are being used to treat these symptoms. Eat healthy meals at appropriate times and these symptoms may disappear. Be kind to yourself. ...Read more
