Keppra And Excederine
Ibuprofen: As needed, yes.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes, but: Ultracet contains tylenol (acetaminophen) and tramadol. The latter has prompted seizures in some susceptible patients, but this appears often dose dependent. If you are perfectly controlled on keppra, you may not be at high risk, but likely safer to try an opioid for pain relief, and drugs such as vicodin, butrans, Nucynta would be less risky. ...Read more

Is it okay that I usedget fiorinal (aspirin butalbital and caffeine) with 30mg codeine for tension/cluster headaches.?
Yes it is ok: It is ok to use this. This medicine was not generally effective for many headache subtypes so it has not become a first line agent for any of them. If you have tried many other treatments, and failed, this may be a reasonable option. It is surprising how often codeine medicines do not help headaches. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

I suggest having only one. ...Read more
