Causes Of Impaired Social Interaction
Impaired interaction: This is when a patient is behaving in ways that are self destructive or otherwise do not conform to the norms of society. ...Read more
Yes: Children have difficulty distinguishing the virtual world from reality. Social skills suffer because children become preoccupied with the games; they fail to learn how to interact with adults and peers. Violent video games have been associated with aggressive behavior in children and teens. I encourage parents to censor videos and limit screen time (tv, computer, games) to 2 hr or less daily. ...Read more
Not sure, but: I know zeolite is used in detox (ex. Heavy metal/liver detox) with varying degrees of success, due to its binding activity. I doubt any peer-reviewed studies have been conducted on its interaction with ssri's and the like, since it falls into the 'alternative' medicine category. I would space your zeolite and ssri doses as far apart as possible to avoid interactions. ...Read more
How soon after adderallir can I take nucyntair to avoid the negative effects/interactions they cause together, such as the hallucinations?
Not a good combo: Since you need both of these medications in your blood for prolonged periods of time, there is no way to dose them that can avoid the side effect of hallucinations. It seems to me to be an unwise combination. I would recommend that you have your psychiatrist or family doctor or whoever's prescribing your psychostimulant talk to your pain management position and confer regarding other treatment options. There are many other treatment options out there. Best wishes. ...Read more
Depends: On the antipsychotic drug used, generally speaking drug-drug interaction usually occurs with antipsychotics, antibiotics and anticoagulants (blood thinners), so caution is advised with the use of multiple drugs any how, as far as I know there is no significant interaction between benadryl (diphenhydramine) and zoloft for example, but not sure what medicine you're referring to, kindly run it by your physician ...Read more

Do you think taking Le-Vel Thrive and Zoloft (sertraline) at the same time would cause interactions?
Unknown interactions: Le Vel Thrive is a product marketed to promote weight loss, energy and improved mood and focus. It reportedly contains vitamins, minerals, herbal supplements, enzymes and antioxidants designed to produce lean muscle and mental clarity. However, such claims have not been endorsed by the FDA.

Can I take esomeprazole and Zofran (ondansetron) at the same time? Will it cause the zofran (ondansetron) not to work? Or are there no interactions?
Drug interactions: On review of the literature, there are no interactions that I could find between the two medications. To be on the safe side, space out the timing when taking each medication. If you do have any problems, let us know, but the likelihood of interactions occurring is low. Hope this helps & ask, if you have any other questions. ...Read more
I take methadone and I am wanting to start a 3 day trial of plexus slim. Will this cause any drug interactions?
Plexus Slim: I agree with dr. Ibrahim. The main weight-loss ingredients in the supplement appear to be chlorogenic acid (like in green tea), garcinia cambogia, fiber, chromium, and components of hoodia. Other parts are sweeteners, flavorings, and antioxidants. This hasn't been tested in humans to see whether it interacts with medications (including methadone). It's ~$80/month after your 3 day "trial.". ...Read more

Seriously,: It may be a really good thig that you are asking for suggestions at all. I hope that as you move towrd getting into better shape you drop the meth - it's really bad for people. Stretching exercises (yoga lite) are good for starters, Pilates too. Core walking. Cut down or off smoking if you can. Be patient! Best wishes! ...Read more

There is no strong association between zoloft (sertraline) and weight gain but depression can cause loss of appetite and treatment may cause it to return.
Do not take st. Johns wort, its affects are additive to zoloft (sertraline) and might cause a condition called serotonin syndrome or neuroleptic malignant syndrome. ...Read more

Before starting Duloxetine 60mg I was 242.5 lbs and have remained similar weight since, however, my waist has gone 107cmto124cm. Could Duloxetine cause something eg swelling to explain this? Or perhaps an interaction between clozapine and Duloxetine?
Probable Interaction: There is a well established interaction between duloxetine & clozapine leading to various abnormalities including elevated clozapine blood levels and blood chemistry abnormalities. Anyone on this combination should be monitored closely by their prescriber (s) including lab studies on blood chemistries & clozapine serum levels along with the routine blood counts required on clozapine. ...Read more
