Get second opinion: The combination could readily backfire, as the Elavil (amitriptyline) and Ativan can both cause anti-cholinergic side effects, and additive sedation, lethargy, and dizziness. Both very low dose, but nonetheless may cause more problems than success. Not clear why these two have been started together. ?Psych Concierge appt? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: You may take these two medicines together. The Ibuprofen will not enhance the effect of the Lorazepam as it is not a narcotic. 600 mg Ibuprofen should not be taken more than every 6 hours.

Talk to your doctor: You may want to talk with the prescribing physician about the side effects. I would let them know if breaking those tablets in half and taking them like that would make sense. Some people might do better with taking a half tablet twice a day or taking the dose about twelve hours later than usual. Be sure to keep your prescribing physician in the loop! stay safe! ...Read more
Can I take 600mg of ibuprofen 3x/day for 1 wk. if I have GERD & eosinophilic esophagitis? I take 40mg prilosec & 100mg Zoloft (sertraline) daily.
With caution: Make sure u take omeprazol on an ampty stomach ( wait at least 60min after eating ) , for its complete absortion. 40mg is a good protection for GERD and esophagitis, but still better reduce the ibuprofen to only 400mg q8 hours. To prevent any worsening of your stomach symptoms. ...Read more

May take longer. : Zoloft and Cymbalta (duloxetine) are actually very different from each other. Cymbalta (duloxetine) is very potent and works on two different receptors (serotonin ; norepinephrine ) and many people take longer to get off of it. Zoloft works mostly on one (receptor) and 50 mg is a low dose. Talk to your doctor about this. ...Read more

Yes.: I may have already answered it but neglected to address the Melatonin.

These three medications are best taken at night before bedtime as they are sedating. ...Read more

Ok, 1 more ?...Would there be any reason that u shouldn't should stop taking celexa (citalopram) suddenly one day after taking 4 10months?
Stopping celexa (citalopram): Whether you would have symptoms on suddenly stopping is most related to the dose you are taking. If you are taking the standard low dose, 10 mg, most people are able to stop abruptly without significant side effects. Some people take higher doses, 20-40 mg, and abrupt stopping may cause some jitteriness or feeling peculiar, but will pass. To avoid this, cut the dose in half for 7 days, then stop. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I take Zoloft (sertraline) and Fluanxol from a week. 100 mg Zoloft (sertraline) and 1 mg Fluanxol and I get convulsions. Is this sth to worry about?
Contact doctor ASAP: Zoloft, (sertraline) an antidepressant, and Fluanxol, an antipsychotic, can both potentially lower the seizure threshold in susceptible patients. It appears you are also on Tobramycin, an antibiotic. Altogether, the combination may make you more prone to untoward side effects. Recommend you notify your doctor at once. All the best. ...Read more

Prednisone Taper: Unfortunately, some of us don't really listen or understand what our patients are telling us. Look Doc, I can't function at all with my prednisone under 5 mg. I don't know how long or why you are on prednisone. If you can't make him listen and it is affecting you like that, then maybe you need a second opinion. That's how I would handle it. ...Read more
