Are these medicine's okay together? I just like a couple opinions. Lithium, lorazipam, claritin, (loratadine) omeprazole, colace, iron & flonaise?

Are these medicine's  okay together? I just like a couple opinions.  Lithium, lorazipam, claritin, (loratadine) omeprazole, colace, iron & flonaise?

Looks fine to me: The combination looks fine to me. I don't see any problems with it. The only thing that i would question would be use of colace. I don't know how long you're going to need to be on the iron. Something along the lines of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) may be better for you. Otherwise i don't see anything in the way of drug drug interactions that should be problematic. ...Read more

What antihistamines give me 24hr protection? Allegra 180mg? Can I take Xyzal (levocetirizine) 5mg at night and Allegra 180mg morning? Topping up prove effective?

What antihistamines give me 24hr protection? Allegra 180mg? Can I take Xyzal (levocetirizine) 5mg at night and Allegra 180mg morning? Topping up prove effective?

Yes: Depends on the condition. Most of the newer antihistamine may cover hay fever symptoms for nearly 24 hrs but would not be sufficient to control hives. Antihistamines have a high safety margin on dosing and thus it is ok for you to use both if necessary. ...Read more

Bought some Mucinex dm today for cough and chest congestion. I also take 20mg of Lexapro (escitalopram). Drugs dot com says major interactions. Uhhhh? Can I take?

Bought some Mucinex dm today for cough and chest congestion. I also take 20mg of Lexapro (escitalopram). Drugs dot com says major interactions.  Uhhhh? Can I take?

Ask pharmacist or Dr: This is very troubling indeed. And everything I've read supports what you found. Don't risk a potentially life-threatening interaction but do try to find an alternative to Lexapro (escitalopram) w/ your doctor. It's not the guaifenesin part, so you could take Mucinex pills and gargle w/ salt water for throat pain and drink honey-lemon-tea-(bit of bourbon). Sorry, but you actually may find this to work better! ...Read more
