Prescribed adderal ir 30mg 3x day & neurontin (gabapentin) 1200 mg (nerve damage) can I take neurontin (gabapentin) at night as one dose? Does neurontin (gabapentin) effect adderall working

Clarification: Neurontin does not interact with most drugs and will not affect your Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Since it has a short duration of action, cannot be taken once daily but needs thrice daily dosing. A gabapentin preparation, Gralise, however, can be taken once daily at night. ...Read more

Can parkinson's. Medicine give me  highbood pressure 
i taking mirapex. 1.5. Mg amantadine 100mg azilect (rasagiline). 1 mg. ?

PD MEDS & HTN: There is no evidence in the medical literature that Mirapex, Azilect (rasagiline) and Amantadine will increase the blood pressure however if the Parkinson's patient has orthostatic hypotension dopamine agonist such as Mirapex can worsen it. I have not seen Mirapex, Amantadine or Azilect (rasagiline) increase blood pressure in my patients. ...Read more

GAD. On Dothiepin 31.25mg, Lexotan 0.375mg 1 year. Dry eyes. Doc said stop Doethiepin, take Lexotan 1.5mg. Can stop without taper? Scared of rebound.

Tricyclic withdrawal: Dothiepin 31.25mg/day is a small dose; risks for side effects of withdrawal are much less than at high doses. Tricyclic antidepressant withdrawal can be unpleasant, w mood symptoms including irritability & insomnia, & flu-like physical symptoms. There can even be dangerous heart rhythms (rare); no-one should stop these medicines abruptly on his/her own without discussing w prescriber. ...Read more

I have high bp,tachycardia, daily take Effexor (venlafaxine) XR, soma, ultram, zonegran, methergine, metoprolol tar, elavil, neurontin.What OTC cold med can I take?

I take clonidine troprol XL lisinipril & celebrex (celecoxib) is this safe?

I take clonidine  troprol XL  lisinipril & celebrex (celecoxib)  is this safe?

With the exception: Of the innate side effects in each medication, and as long as your blood pressure is not too low, then it is a pretty safe mix as they do not work on the same receptors and shouldn't overlap. That being said, the one possible problem is taking an NSAID (celebrex) and lisinopril, you can cause kidney damage as one shuts down efferent and one afferent arteries to glomeruli. Be cautious. ...Read more

Can i take cinnarzine tabs. Togther with my deppresion therapy(10 mg escitalopram+25mg amitriptyline)&my hypertension therapy (10 mg zestril)?

Interactions: Escitalopram and Elavil (amitriptyline) may cause a rare problem known as seritonin syndome. Elavil and Lisinopril (zestril) may lover your blood pressure at the beginning of treatment or with any dose increase, causing dizziness; they may also increase your heart rate. Be careful when you stand up and do so slowly at first. ...Read more

How effective is clonidine (Catapres) for treating complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)?

How effective is clonidine (Catapres) for treating complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)?

Catapres (clonidine) & CRPS: If your blood pressure is normal, you won't be able to handle even 0.1mg of catapres (clonidine). Will make you feel lethargic since it lowers blood pressure. This is the negative which I have thus far seen in my CRPS population. However, for the ones in whom it works, it is a great SEVEN DAYS time released neuropathic pain patch. I's much more ideal to change patch q 7 days than take pills every day! ...Read more

How high a dose of gabapenten can I take while taking 60 mgs of cymbalta, (duloxetine) I'm currently taking 300 mgs of gabapenten .

How high a dose of gabapenten can I take while taking 60 mgs of cymbalta, (duloxetine) I'm currently taking 300 mgs of gabapenten .

May increase: Gabapentin is safe and there are no interactions with cymbalta (duloxetine). Sometimes the dose is increased to as high as 900 mg three times a day. This would need to be increased by your doctor, slowly over months based on symptoms and all your other medications and conditions. As with any medication you want to use the lowest dose possible to get the desired results. Results with gabapentin take time. ...Read more

Exercise caution: With multiple drugs, lisinopril won't interact with the other medicines you mentioned, but hydroxzine, norco, zofran (ondansetron) and gabapentin might interact with each other, talk to your doctor and know exactly when to take each medicine, and if you can hold one till you finish with the other, your doctor can describe better as he knows your case, take care ...Read more

Effexor (venlafaxine) 150mg, Zoloft 100mg and Albuterol 8mg. Side Effects? Interactions?

Curious about why: the combo of zoloft and effexor (venlafaxine). Both can increase serotonin levels. Although we classically think of serotonergic syndrome occurring with highly serotonergic levels - sometimes the person can actually be on doses that are not that high. ...Read more

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
