Yes: there are no contraindications with any medication, as far as I know. Magnesium is found in many foods, and magnesium deficiency has become more common, particularly with use of drugs like omeprazole (Prilosec), esomeprazole (Nexium) and similar drugs which markedly reduce stomach acid and impede magnesium absorption. ...Read more
Can i take 1000 mgs Depakote 10 mgs Valium 25 mgs doxepin and 300 mgs Trileptal together at bed time?
There is a drug : Interaction between trileptal and valium. Valium blood levels rise in the presence of trieptal, so it is generally recommended practice to lower the valium dose while on trileptal. All of the other medications are safe to be taken together. I would not take the full 25 mg of valium along with the combination however. Talk to your prescribing physician about this. Best wishes. ...Read more
Taking 1000 mgs Depakote 10 mgs Valium 10 mgs Ambien at bed time. Can i still take 5 mgs of saphris (asenapine)?
Ask your doctor: Dd your doctor prescribe these to be taken all at once? The combo of valium and Ambien is deadly. Please don't take them together tonight, and call your doctor in the morning. As for Depakote and saphris, (asenapine) do take these as going without could cause a relapse of your bipolar disorder. Be well. ...Read more

It depends.: Some people may be very sensitive to low doses of meds, especially if you have liver disease or your liver enzymes are slow metabolizers of drugs. You could develop serotonin syndrome w/ low doses of Lexapro (escitalopram) & tramadol. Let your doctor know if you experience nausea, flushing, diarrhea, headaches, profuse sweating, muscle twitching, rigidity, confusion, hallucinations or seizures. ...Read more
Can you take together 10 mg lexapro (escitalopram) , 25 mg lamotrigine 1200 mg fish oil and 1000 mg acetaminofen ?
Yes, but...: Lexapro, (escitalopram) Lamictal, and Fish Oil are often co-prescribed. If fish oil is being used for therapeutic benefit, its good to know the EPA content of the capsules. EPA (not total fish oil weight) needs to be around 1000 to 1500 mg per day to impact mood (FYI). Acetaminophen at 1000 mg - as an occasional dose - is fine to take s the above. Frequent use, though, is to be avoided. ...Read more

Can losartan 50 mg be at 10 pm with vytoryn 10/20, tegretol 400 mg and klonopin (clonazepam) 1.5?
Started having interdose withdrawals with 2 mg of Ativan divided dose. --dr switched me to 1 mg of klonopin (clonazepam) divided dose ..does this make sense?
Yes: Ativan 2mg is the maximum dose that can be safely given at any one time, so this places patients at greater risk of uncomfortable withdrawl symptoms until the next dose is administered. Furthermore, Klonopin (clonazepam) is easier to manage and tolerate than Ativan because it has a longer half life, or a longer time that its chemicals remain effective in the human body. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
