Can you take together 10 mg lexapro (escitalopram) , 25 mg lamotrigine 1200 mg fish oil and 1000 mg acetaminofen ?
Yes, but...: Lexapro, (escitalopram) Lamictal, and Fish Oil are often co-prescribed. If fish oil is being used for therapeutic benefit, its good to know the EPA content of the capsules. EPA (not total fish oil weight) needs to be around 1000 to 1500 mg per day to impact mood (FYI). Acetaminophen at 1000 mg - as an occasional dose - is fine to take s the above. Frequent use, though, is to be avoided. ...Read more

Right: While there are potential interactions between a few of your medicines, the coq10 should not interact with lexapro, (escitalopram) suboxone, atenolol, hctz, klonopin, levothyroxin, and vyvanse.

Drug interactions with niacin atenolol vit c magnesium iron Zoloft (sertraline) melatonin and armour ?
Epocrates check: A quick check on my trusty med database program reveals 3 main negative interactions with those meds listed. Two of them are with armour. The armour interacts with both the iron and magnesium making the thyroid med less absorbed, so separate these vitamins from your armour by at least 4 hrs. The other major interaction is atenolol and niacin. Less cholesterol lowering effect and overlowering of bp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not OK: Haven't we met before over this question? Why is a 17 y.o. taking ALL that medication? What's going on? I assume the Penicillin's temporary? But HYDROCODONE+ Ibuprofen?

I'm on synthroid, lexapro, (escitalopram) Ativan, Vit D & ferrous sulfate.Can I take melatonin to help with sleep?
Melatonin is safe: In a neurologically normal, generally healthy adult, there should be no adverse effects from melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone naturally secreted by the body that is suppressed by daylight and climbs with darkness to help entrain the brain's clock to go to sleep. Melatonin does not interact with the medicines and supplements listed. Lower doses are closest to what the brain secretes. ...Read more
