Dr. Tom heston faafp, fasnc, facnm is it ok to take wellbutrin, pristiq, and savella (milnacipran) together?
I am not Dr Heston, : And in my opinion, that combination is very good as long as those medications work together to relieve the symptoms of depression, anxiety and chronic pain. When the illness is severe enough, combining several agents is more effective, causes less side effects, although it can be more costly and cumbersome to maintain the treatment. Hope this answer to your question while awaiting for dr heston's. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Psychiatry appt.: I'm not sure what you're requesting here, since you already have an appointment with a psychiatrist with whom you can discuss tapering valium. The doctor will want to know where you are with your anxiety, and maybe develop other treatment options as needed. Less habit-forming medicines are available, and hopefully the "behavior therapy" you're working in is helping. ...Read more

Let's see: Let's see what your holter shows - surely the ny's celebration was contributory at the time but not now. It may have made you more aware of ordinary irregularity though. Normal folks have palpitations sometimes. A full workup should include a blood sample for thyroid fct, potassium, magnesium, and an echo in addition to the holter. Many people have some palps with no heart disease (which is good). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
