I was prescribed Prozac 40 mg, Ritalin 10 mg, Concerta 108 mg, Remeron 30 mg and Risperdal 3 mg. Is this number of drugs safe?

Looks like pplypharm: while need more of hx, suspect by number of your medications you probably do not need to be on this many, make sure your psychiatrist is not adding on a new medication for every new psychiatric symptom as sometimes one disease like depression can have all the other associated symptoms like inattention, poor concentration which will improve with an antidepressant alone without the need for Ritalin. ...Read more

Interactions with adrena smart. Currently I am taking 300mg wellbutrin (bupropion) od, naproxen 500mg prn, tramacet prn ( naproxen /tramacet for grade 3 sprain)?

Interactions with adrena smart.  Currently I am taking 300mg wellbutrin (bupropion) od, naproxen 500mg prn, tramacet prn ( naproxen /tramacet for grade 3 sprain)?

Hard to tell : Research is needed to best answer these types of questions. Unlike fda approved drugs, dosing for supplements like adrenasmart are not standardized and they are not rigorously researched, making their potential for drug-drug interaction unknown. Tramadol plus wellbutrin (bupropion) plus adrenasmart could conceivably precipitate seizure. Question is if adrenasmart is even needed for your "adrenal exhaustion". ...Read more

Out of vitamin D3 5000 mg 1/day, vitamin B12 1/day, requip (ropinirole) 1mg 1/day, duexis 800 mg 3/day or kolonopin 0.5mg 1/day which one would constipate me?

See your physician: None of these medications is a "usual suspect" that causes constipation. However, 4% of patients taking Duexis reported constipation (caveat: the percent of patients taking ibuprofen who reported constipation was the same). Keep a log of your bowel movements (frequency, consistency, timing) and take it to your physician for discussion. http://www.rxlist.com/duexis-side-effects-drug-center.htm ...Read more

Can i take melatonin? I currently take neurontion 300 mg t.I.D., qd, klonopin 0.5 mg b.I.D., prn, Soma 350 mg h.S., tylenol (acetaminophen) qd

Yes, but: Higher doses of melatonin can actually interfere with normal sleep. Take 0.3 to 1 mg. 90 minutes before intended sleep and see how you do. There is a possible additive effect with your other meds that also can have sedative effects., . ...Read more

What does bmd stand for? Many anti psychotic&mood stabilizer prescribed.Including perphenazine 8mg tid, trihexyphenidyl 2mg tid sodium valproate200 tid

Acronym: Acronyms can be confusing sometimes. But from the letters you list and the medications you've been prescribed, i'm guessing it might stand for bipolar mood disorder. Your best bet is to ask the doctor or other mental health professional who used it -- see what was truly meant. ...Read more

I have high bp,tachycardia, daily take Effexor (venlafaxine) XR, soma, ultram, zonegran, methergine, metoprolol tar, elavil, neurontin.What OTC cold med can I take?

None: I would not recommend any further medication, since the chance for adverse drug interactions is high. You are are already taking several medications that act on the serotonin system and may result in adverse interaction. ...Read more

I am prescribed .50mg Xanax (alprazolam) 3/daily, 75mg Amitriptyline, and 50mg Trazadone. I'm 6'1, 232 male. Is this safe?

 I am prescribed .50mg Xanax (alprazolam) 3/daily, 75mg Amitriptyline, and 50mg Trazadone. I'm 6'1, 232 male. Is this safe?

OVERLAPPING MEDS: The combo of Meds you are on looks like you are being treated for anxiety and depression . Xanax (alprazolam) is short acting for anxiety . Trazadone and amitriptyline are long acting for anxiety and depression but are very similar and both cause weight gain.. I would taper trazadone and start cymbalta. You need full lab work up including TFTS. Also a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea. ...Read more

Suspected failed Fundoplication.Extreme upper abdo tightness&pressure.Can belch easily. Prescribed 80mg Nexium (esomeprazole) daily.What r the effects of high dose?

Suspected failed Fundoplication.Extreme upper abdo tightness&pressure.Can belch easily. Prescribed 80mg Nexium (esomeprazole) daily.What r the effects of high dose?

Maybe none: I you really suspect the fundoplication failed, you should get another endoscopy, barium swallow, pH test, and even manometry, and compare them to the preoperative data. It may be that the sunrooms are not due to reflux. Long term, high dose PPI medication MAY be associated with osteoporosis and heart attacks, but the data are not iron clad. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?

Probably Not: Especially for someone who is young. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't even get metabolized by the liver. That being said, it makes sense to monitor you liver w/regular lab-work & to ask yourself if exercise, nutrition, & meditation can help your symptoms & reduce your pill burden. ...Read more

Acute IBS attacks. Have prescription levsin (hyoscyamine) .125mg. It's old (aug'11) & little help. Has med potency waned? Can i boost dose amt & or freq til i can get new rx?

Can increase the dos: Levsin (hyoscyamine) could be taken every 6 to 8 hours as needed and you can take it orally or sublingual which is faster acting.If .125mg is not working for you , you can increase the dose to .25mg.Also if you not responding as before need to look for other factors including your stress level and dietary habit. ...Read more
