Oseltamivir (Definition)

The brand name is tamiflu (oseltamivir). It is a prodrug, which means it is inactive until metabolized by a person's body into the active form. It blocks neuraminidase, an enzyme in influenza virus; by doing this, it prevents the flu virus from detaching from the host cell and slows the spread of the virus. It comes in a tablet form, as ...Read more

Is it ok to take store brand NyQuil, when taking Tamiflu (oseltamivir)?

Is it ok to take store brand NyQuil, when taking Tamiflu (oseltamivir)?

TheFluWon'tFlyAway: Yes, it's OK. Just take as directed (well, a little more NyQuil won't kill you if you think you need it). Tamiflu (oseltamivir) works on the virus. The NyQuil works on the symptoms that the virus is causing. Neither is very good but not totally bogus. More important is rest, fluids, rest, proper nutrition, rest, more fluids, more rest, and *time* and not thinking you can just go about your business normally. ...Read more

Is it ok to take 0.25mg Xanax to temper occasional anxiousness due to newly prescribed Adderall XR 30mg?

Is it ok to take 0.25mg Xanax to temper occasional anxiousness due to newly prescribed Adderall XR 30mg?

Best not: An initial dose of 30mg Adderal would be expected to cause some anxiousness. Best talk to your provider about possibly a lower dose. Xanax does not interact with Adderal in a bad way, it's just best to address the root of the problem. If you find you need 30mg, the side effects are likely to diminish with time. ...Read more

My adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) 10mg doesn't work anymore and I have a big test tomorrow. Is it ok to take 2 pills to equal 20mg, the dosage I need?

Need approval from: You doc, who should be informed that this dose is no longer effective--particularly important for your next refill! Assuming that you are not a dwarf, your pcp may give you the ok, as adults with ADD or ADHD may need more than the initial dose, which commonly may lose effectiveness. Higher limits are 30 mg twice a day, although most adults respond to 20 mg bid long term. ...Read more

I have epilepsy and take 200mg topamax (topiramate) twice daily. Is it ok to take Adderall or Adderall XR with my topamax (topiramate) to assist with my anxiety/focus?

I have epilepsy and take 200mg topamax (topiramate) twice daily. Is it ok to take Adderall or Adderall XR with my topamax (topiramate) to assist with my anxiety/focus?

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR treats: Symptoms of adhd, but can increase anxiety, as can any stimulant. I could not find any studies on the efficacy of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) for reducing topamax's side effects of difficulty with word-retrieval, loss of train-of -thought & loss of memory, so i'll refer your question to adult psychiatrists on the panel. Both meds can cause weight loss. There is no adverse drug interaction listed. ...Read more

With any side effects stop the supplement ...Read more

Why?: If the Adderall and Prozac (fluoxetine) both cause loss of appetite for you, why do you need something in addition as a diet aid? Take advantage of the fact that you have less appetite and just eat less! ...Read more

Ok when I take my Adderall in the am it is fine than three hours later I start feeling weird an I take a small dose of Xanax (alprazolam) an it helps?

Wierd on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine): Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a stimulant, so it increases arousal state. As a result, some people can develop anxiety. If xanax/alprazolam resolves this sensation in you, this may be the case. Even if this is the case, please call your doctor/prescriber to discuss your medication reaction. ...Read more

Ran out of adderall not gettin new script till tm, have left over vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) from when I used to be prescribed before I switched, ok for me to take 1 day?

Depends on dose: Adderall is a mixture of amphetamine salts while Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is just one component of Addersll. The general equivalence is 30 mg of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) = 10 mg of Addersll, 50 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) = 20 mg Addersll & 70 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)= 30 mg of Adderall. If you were taking a dose of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) equivalent to your Adderall you should be safe in the short run. ...Read more
