Taking Lamictal, luvox, (fluvoxamine) risperdol and klonopin.  Can I take adderall?

If by doctor's order: If you're taking these medications on doctor's order then, I cannot tell you NOT to take either one of them or any of them. But if what you're asking is whether or not it's SAFE to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) with all the other medications or whether or not it's really NECESSARY for to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) given the rest of the drugs you're taking then, that discussion should really be with your prescribing doctor. ...Read more

Is a 100 dose sertraline high dose?

Depends: on your treatment goals. Typically doses can go higher (200 mg +) if treating depression. But there is a wide dosage range that is therapeutic, in my experience, since every person is different. If you feel better on 100 mg. and have no side effects, that's the best dose for you. Don't worry about a "standard" dose. Take care. ...Read more

Bipolar(controlled -lamictal, carbamazepine), anxiety-semi-under control (lorazepam, temazepam, cymbalta) and ADD problematic- considering Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ?

Bipolar(controlled -lamictal, carbamazepine), anxiety-semi-under control (lorazepam, temazepam, cymbalta)  and ADD problematic- considering Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ?

So much medication: It might be necessary to take some drugs but I question the risks already and adding the new one is especially bad w/ cymbalta (duloxetine). It can cause severe anxiety! Also serotonin syndrome. Almost all of your meds combine to cause a host of symptoms like dizziness, confusion and general impairment. Please consider a good psych eval and adding good psychotherapy to lower need for Rx and help them work! ...Read more

Can i take Zoloft with wellbutrin, adderall, abilify, (aripiprazole) Neurontin and lamictal?

Lot of medications: I'm not sure whether these are all prescribed by the same physician? It sounds as though your bipolar disorder (from the additional info you supplied) may be quite hard to manage, and meds have been added but none removed. Perhaps you'd benefit from a second opinion about your case and possibly simplify your regimen. It could also be that your symptoms demand high intensity measures. ...Read more
