Take geodon (ziprasidone) at night, wellbutrin, propanolol in the morning. Cansmoking pot or drinking alcohol harm me? I can't seem to find info on drug interactions

Yes, can harm you: Yes, adding pot and alcohol to geodon, (ziprasidone) wellbutrin, and propanolol can harm you. The result can be a lot of sedation -- not to mention destabilizing mood and potentially driving psychosis. Discuss this with your own physician. Check it out with your pharmacist also. ...Read more

I take geodon, (ziprasidone) wellbutrin, and propanolol. The doctor i see refuses to help with my insomnia. So i smoke pot to help me sleep. Will they interact?

I take geodon, (ziprasidone) wellbutrin, and propanolol. The doctor i see refuses to help with my insomnia. So i smoke pot to help me sleep. Will they interact?

Not wise to do so: They could all work at cross purposes. While medications that are prescribed are designed to produce some regulation and stabilization of neurotransmitters, smoking pot pushes others. Not a great solution to insomnia at all. Cognitive behavioral therapy could help. Consider asking 4 referral to a clinical psychologist see: http://cpancf.Com/articles_files/insomniabasicguide.Asp. ...Read more

Would wellbutrin (bupropion) be safe for me to use even though I have Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome? I'm on propranol.

Would wellbutrin (bupropion) be safe for me to use even though I have Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome? I'm on propranol.

Ask Cardiologist: Wellbutrin or bupropion has a greater that 10% risk of increasing heart rate and a 1-10% chance of causing palpatations, irregular heart rate and chest pain. Any of those could interfere with WPW and cause issues. Regardless of the reasons for taking bupropion, i would think there are better options for you. ...Read more

Propranolol(40 mg pd, no bradycardia up to 40mg.)didn't really reduced my agitation, any alternative medicine?(together with sertraline&bupropion).Tnx

Propranolol(40 mg pd, no bradycardia  up to 40mg.)didn't really reduced my agitation, any alternative medicine?(together with sertraline&bupropion).Tnx

Some options: If you have not tried therapy/counseling yet, that would be my first recommendation. Looking at diet and reducing stimulants could help. Good sleep, exercise, yoga & meditation can help some people. Short term use of Lorazepam can help. Clonidine might help. You didn't mention dose of wellbutrin, (bupropion) but it can be "activating" and cause akathisia in some. Review doses and symptoms with doc. ...Read more

May not be best comb: It's OK to take Propranolol wit Zolpidem, as far as I know, if you are otherwise healthy. talk to your prescriber about any symptoms / side effects you may be experiencing.

I am prescribed 1 40mg propranolol twice a day for anxiety, so it is ok to take one at about 8am and then the other at about 6pm?

I am prescribed 1 40mg propranolol twice a day for anxiety, so it is ok to take one at about 8am and then the other at about 6pm?

Yes, dosage is fine: When meds are prescribed twice per day, usual dose is one in AM and one in evening. Unless your doctor has specific instructions ( such as one with breakfast, or one upon awakening and one at bedtime) the times you suggest are OK. Try to take them around the same time each day, that way you are less likely to forget dose. If you have more questions, check with your prescribing doctor. Good luck ...Read more
