Yes: Depakote should not be taken with food, as food decreases the absorption of the depakote. Xenical should be taken with a meal. There is a strong possibility that xenical will decrease the absorption of Depakote if taken together. Both medications are metabolized in the liver, therefore, close monitoring of liver function is essential. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There is a drug : Interaction between trileptal and valium. Valium blood levels rise in the presence of trieptal, so it is generally recommended practice to lower the valium dose while on trileptal. All of the other medications are safe to be taken together. I would not take the full 25 mg of valium along with the combination however. Talk to your prescribing physician about this. Best wishes. ...Read more

I take klonipon 0.5 mg and Depakote 3 times a day what is a normal laying down blood pressure. I am in Xanax (alprazolam) detox
Normal range: BP lying down and sitting up are generally pretty much the same. Withdrawal from benzodiazepines, if done too rapidly, can result in higher blood pressure as a withdrawal syndrome response. Whatever your normal pressure is (110/70 is average) should be your lying down blood pressure while being tapered from xanax, (alprazolam) especially if Clonazepam is being used to help taper you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please tell me, could i drink alcohol at a concert if im taking zyprexa (olanzapine) and Depakote at the same time?
No: If you are being treated for either of the things these are used for - seizure disorders or bipolar disorder (and probably the latter) - alcohol is not your friend. It interferes with the levels of other drugs, reduces their effectiveness, and intoxication with alcohol is followed by increased depression, and even mania. If you are drinking, talk to your doctor about it, and keep "dose" low-one! ...Read more
