Went to take my Lexapro (escitalopram) 20mg QD and was out. Can I take my wife's Celexa 20mg for one dose until I get my refill tomorrow?
Probably: These medications are not equivalent to each other ... Although chemically they're like a parent and child. That said, Lexapro (escitalopram) has a fairly long half life (about 30 hours), so it's probably safest to just skip 1 dose and resume it tomorrow when you have it refilled from the pharmacy. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Amitriptyline now ok: There seems to me no good reason to avoid taking Ambien (zolpidem) and Amitriptyline at the same time as long as you get into bed as soon as you take the ambien (zolpidem).

I accidentally took two lisinipril 40 mg pills this afternoon at the same time. I'm supposed to take just one. Will I overdose? What should I do?
Probably fine: It might temporarily drop your BP, but I suspect you will come out of if ok. For 6 hrs afterward best to be careful with ambulation. May wish to check your BP later in day as make sure it has come back up. ...Read more
I take Coreg (carvedilol) and Losartan at 9:30 am and take a Losartan again at 4:pm and take Coreg (carvedilol) again at 9:30 pm. I missed my 4pm Lorsartan. What should I do?
Missed Medication : For most medications, a missed dose is not ideal but usually does no harm so just take the next dose on time. Missed blood pressure or blood sugar medication and antibiotics may need to be taken upon remembering, if within half the time prior to the next dose, possibly at half dose. Anticoagulants need to be discussed with the MD ASAP. Use a medication organizer with a timer. Prevention Works! ...Read more
Hi. I have been on enalapril and hct for 5 years. I went to Doctor yesterday.she took me off. How do i wean off safely.
Stopping meds: Both enalapril and HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) usually do not require weaning as long as your blood pressure remains normal after the medications are discontinued. I would recommend you check your BP 2-3 times a day for a week after stopping the meds and touch base with your physician. ...Read more
I forgot to take my antidepressant zoloft 50 mg today, should I wait till tomorrow or take a pill asap?
Tomorrow: Missing one dose is not going to do any harm. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
I took one time25mg of metropolol yesterday and dr wants me on lisinopril -hctz 20.12.5 is this safe to take after the dose of metropolol yesterday?
Dosing of BP meds: If you were my patient, i would use maximum doses of one BP medication and then go to another if the patient's BP was not controlled. You are less than maximum doses of both metropolol and lisiniopril-hctz (lh) 20/12.5. Ask your physician if, your BP is not controlled, you can go to lh 40/25 to see if your BP can be controlled on that dose and stop the metropolol. Your 25 mg dose is quite low. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
