Pregnancy (Definition)

Took 750 mg depakote, stopped taking at 2 weeks pregnant. Is my baby going to have birth defects? I'm very worried.

Took 750 mg depakote, stopped taking at 2 weeks pregnant. Is my baby going to have birth defects? I'm very worried.

Should Be OK: Highly unlikely due to the brevity of the exposure. At least due to the depakote. There are times of embryonic development that carry higher risk , later in the pregnancy. Remember thyere is also a random risk, unfortunately, of problems, but in this case you should be ok. ...Read more

What are negatives of taking 50 mg benedryl long term for sleep every couple of days? While taking 2 1200 mg musonex daily

What are negatives of taking 50 mg benedryl long term for sleep every couple of days? While taking 2 1200 mg musonex daily

Cart before horse: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a remarkable well-tolerated drug, although not side-effect free. It is relatively quite safe without cumulative use-associated drug toxicity. Mucinex (guaifenesin) however, although generally safe, may cumulatively result in uric acid kidney stones. Taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine) more than 2 or 3 times weekly may lead to loss of sleep induction. ...Read more

Starting my 3rd trimester, very low risk pregnancy. Curious about taking 500mg Niacin orally. Use Vitamin D3 and B12 for mild depression.

Category C drug: You a bodybuilder? LOL The "skinny" on this is that niacin is a vasodilator which is why bodybuilders love it (just ask Arnold). It ain't half bad lowering cholesterol as well. But it's labeled a Cat. C risk during pregnancy. That means harm to baby CANNOT BE RULED OUT, Probably safe up to about 18mg daily but best advice is to check with your doctor.

Taking 40 mg of citalopram for 2 months now my doctor has me take 300 mg of wellbutrin as well .    on them  for 3 weeks. 
 lots of side effects?

What side effects?: The combination of citalopram and wellbutrin is appropriate for a dual channel depression. Depending on your side effects (either serotonin or norepinephrine based) your dosage of one or the other should be lowered. Discuss with your prescriber. ...Read more

I take 75 mg of effexor (venlafaxine) xr during the day and 25 mg of seroquel at night. Am I still at risk of getting qt prolongation?

I take 75 mg of effexor (venlafaxine) xr during the day and 25 mg of seroquel at night. Am I still at risk of getting qt prolongation?

Yes: Both meds are long-lasting so a 12 hour difference in dose time doesn't eliminate drug interaction. One drug interaction although rare is irregular heart rhythm due to qt prolongation. Discuss this rare interaction with your prescribing doctor to review benefit vs risk of taking both these meds. ...Read more

I am being tapered off lamictal (400mg) within two weeks. The doctor has prescribed clonazepam(klonopin)? Side effects?

I am being tapered off lamictal (400mg) within two weeks. The doctor has prescribed clonazepam(klonopin)? Side effects?

?: Would not want to 2nd guess your doctor, but I am not sure of the rationale for such a plan. Please check with your doctor to make sure you are interpreting the plan correctly as far as side effects of clonazepam, it can be sedating and decrease reaction time, but the biggest issue is the potential for addiction. When used on a regular basis you develop tolerance so it is no longer effective. ...Read more

Not sleeping well. Prednisone for 4 months. Tried Unisom and zaleplon 10mg.
Can I take more than 25mg of unisom? Thinking about taking 50mg, safe?

Unisom is variable:: SleepGels: active ingredient is diphenhydramine HCl (50 mg/dose). SleepTabs: contain doxylamine succinate (25 mg/dose). SleepMinis: Diphenhydramine HCl (50 mg/dose). Unisom Liquid: diphenhydramine HCl (50 mg/dose or 30mL/dose). SleepMelts: diphenhydramine HCl (50 mg/dose) Take only as directed. Use sleep hygiene to improve sleep.

I 2k seroquel (quetiapine) XR 50 mg for 3 days and stopped cause of the side effects to tired working 2 jobs 2 tired. Have bad migraines is it side effects.

Seroquel (quetiapine): I am not sure why the seroquel (quetiapine) was prescribed for you, but perhaps the 50mg dose was too high. It can cause tiredness and drowsiness. You could talk with your doctor about a lower dose (25mg is available) if this is still needed. ...Read more

Stopped taking 0.25mg klonopin (clonazepam) after 2 yrs Bc of positive pregnancy test, will withdrawal be significant?

Stopped taking 0.25mg klonopin (clonazepam) after 2  yrs Bc of positive pregnancy test, will withdrawal be significant?

Not necessarily: This is a small dose and because klonopin (clonazepam) is a very long acting benzodiazepine it will be metabolized down very slowly so it likely will not cause problems - learning and using relaxation procedures/visualization/breathng techniques/etc can be a strong replacement. Exercise may also help. Discontinuing caffeine- containing drinks and products may help. ...Read more

I started taking novotiral 2 months ago, what are the side effects of this medication.
?

Novotiral: This is a form of T4 combined with t3 (liothyronine). Thyroid medication if overdosed will make you nervous, have a tremor, not sleep well and seat more. You will become bothered by heat more. In the right dose there should be no symptoms unless you are allergic to something in the manufacturing process. ...Read more

Stop taking haldol (haloperidol) 5 mg a day after a month an half of taking it and continuing taking akineton 2mg at day can avoid the withdrawal effects of haldol (haloperidol)?

Akathesia: Alathesia can be a b****, that's for sure. Have you tried Cogentin or artane? Sometimes, diffetent ones work better. I will go as high as 2mgs three times/day of Cogentin (benztropine), if needed. Of course, benztropine has side effects too. A little benedryl can help. I don't love inderal- too sedating, but low dose nadalol can be helpful. Check with your dr, no matter what. ...Read more
