Is it OK to take PRAZOSIN HCL 5MG with EFFEXOR (venlafaxine) XR 75MG, PENICILLIN VK 500MG, IBUPROFEN 400MG, HYDROXYZINE PAM 50MG VIT, HYDROCODONE-ACETAMINOPHEN 5?
Not OK: Haven't we met before over this question? Why is a 17 y.o. taking ALL that medication? What's going on? I assume the Penicillin's temporary? But HYDROCODONE+ Ibuprofen? What type of pains need all that @ your age? Prazosin for.....nightmares? And hydroxyzine for itching or nausea? Obviously, someone thinks you NEED all this but you asked the question & I'm giving an opinion. NOT OK is what I say. ...Read more
I take Sertraline HCL 50 MG and Trazodone 150 MG Is it ok to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) allergy liqui-Gels 25 MG with the other meds?
For what?: All meds have potential adverse effects and the more meds you are on increases this risk. Both sertraline and trazodone are antidepressants, but you are likely taking trazodone for sleep and these 2 are not an uncommon combo. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is also sedating. If you need Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for allergies talk to your doc about tapering down trazodone. Also consider seeing an allergist ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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

Is it safe to take sertraline 50 mg tablets, oxycodone/acetaminophen 10/325 mg tablets, and dexamethasone 4 mg tablets together?
Risk: Every medication has risk. Nobody can guarantee that you won't have side effect or be injured by any medication you take. If your doctor prescribes these medications for you after knowing your condition, then that means he/she feels the possible benefit outweighs the risk. You have to decide whether you agree with your doctor or not. ...Read more
I am currently taking Zenchent. Is it safe to take :1000 mg Vitamin C400 IU Vitamin E150 micrograms Chromium10000 IU Vitamin A?
Yes: But the vit C and vit E are a complete waste of money. The vit A is not only a waste of money, it is toxic at high dose. Various skin changes and hair loss are most common. Chromium is not very useful as a supplement, it may cause cancers. You can stop wasting your money on all these supplements. ...Read more
Can you talk Lexapro (escitalopram) 10 mg daily and Arginmax low dose like 3 capsules together agrimax contains ginko biloba L argenine ginsing etc???
If it feels good: its OK. You might want to first sit down and figure out how much this will cost you a month. You might want to consult with someone who specializes in optimal health / complementary medicine to come up with an approach that achieves your therapeutic needs. ( including proper exercise, sleep, balanced nutrition, emotional / educational and spiritual growth.) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm on synthroid, lexapro, (escitalopram) Ativan, Vit D & ferrous sulfate.Can I take melatonin to help with sleep?
Melatonin is safe: In a neurologically normal, generally healthy adult, there should be no adverse effects from melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone naturally secreted by the body that is suppressed by daylight and climbs with darkness to help entrain the brain's clock to go to sleep. Melatonin does not interact with the medicines and supplements listed. Lower doses are closest to what the brain secretes. ...Read more
Is it Safe to take day quill while on 10mg celexa (citalopram) 100mg gabapentin and 150 mg of ranitidine?
Yes, but ...: I would recommend treating cold symptoms more conservatively. The active ingredients of DayQuil are acetaminophen (Tylenol), dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant) and phenylephrine (a decongestant). If anxiety is part of the reason you take Celexa and gabapentin, phenylephrine could make you more anxious. You would do better to use a nasal spray like Afrin to avoid the systemic effects. ...Read more
HmG 10.7- ferritin 6- hematologist said heavy periods &taking high dose nexium (esomeprazole) which stops iron absorption. Taking Ferrex 150 BID-how to fix Fast?
Long term: The fact that you became anemic means you lost all of your body stores of iron and it will take about a year to build up the stores, even after your hemoglobin becomes normal. You may try taking your iron pills three times a day. Take these with meals. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Is it safe to drink Basil tea while taking prescribed meds. Currently on tallion..81 mg aspirin...cetrine...lanzap...plagril 75 mg...norvasc (amlodipine) 5mg?
Is blood thinner so:: Holy Basil is a wonderful herb with many benefits but has mild blood thinning effects so it is advised to be cautious if also taking blood thinners like aspirin and plagril. It is not known if this is clinically significant and I think it is unlikel to be an issue if you drink only 1 or 2 cups a day.
