I am taking becadexamine and aquasol a ( 1 tab each/day) without any doctors advise, is it safe, the vitamin a content in aquasol a is 25, 000 iu.
Vitamins: I'm not familiar w/the brand you mention but a good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. The us rdas are low so vitamins w/about 1/2 or more of double/triple the us rda is best. Read label. ...Read more

My friend was prescribed 120mg of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) a day by a doctor. Is that a safe amount?
The maximum adult: dose of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is 40 mg./day. Sometimes it's necessary to exceed this recommended daily limit, after checking the patient's blood pressure, pulse & cardiac rhythm.

A lower dose of stimulant + an adjunctive non-stimulant would be safer. You may suggest this, but she & her doctor must decide. ...Read more

If doses of 70 mg do not help with focus and concentration than another med should be tried and another diagnosis considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I read that 1 mg of lorazapam is equal to 10 mgs of valuim is this true/if so then given 2 mgs of lorazapam seems like a huge dose or dangerous dose.
Pretty big, yes: Dose-equivalence isn't an exact thing, but i agree that 1mg Lorazepam is about equal to 10mg diazepam (valium). A person new to these meds would find 2mg very strong. Taken regularly, people build tolerance: a given dose seems weaker, and they tolerate more. But there is withdrawal risk as well. None of these doses are dangerous though, unless mixed with other meds or alcohol (or if driving!). ...Read more
