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

Drug Interactions: Drug interactions can occur with combinations of prescription SSRI with certain statins, including those found in naturally occurring Red Yeast Rice. It is best to avoid Red yeast rice and ask MD to use a non-interacting statin.

Yes: there are no contraindications with any medication, as far as I know. Magnesium is found in many foods, and magnesium deficiency has become more common, particularly with use of drugs like omeprazole (Prilosec), esomeprazole (Nexium) and similar drugs which markedly reduce stomach acid and impede magnesium absorption. ...Read more
Ford v Chevy v Dodge: This is a question best addressed w/your doctor. Both are good blood pressure lowering medications that also keep your heart from beating too fast (beta blocker class). Toprol (metoprolol) has more studies recently regarding benefit in heart failure. Of course, cost can play into decision, too, although both are available as generics for $4/mo (http://i.Walmartimages.Com/i/if/hmp/fusion/customer_list.Pdf). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I take Epilim Chrono 500mg which isn't actually equal Depakote ER. (500mg Epilim = 333mg sodium valproate + 145 mg valproic acid),so when to test?
Random: The idea is this medication is supposed to generate a steady state level after about 3 days. Peak and trough levels matter if you are looking for toxicity or sub-therapeutic levels with medications with a short half life. Also Depakote has a very wide therapeutic level (50-100) Consider obtaining a Vit D level (which is often low) and checking ammonia after being on this medication a while. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can I safely take rosuvastatin 40mg with ecosprin 75 mg for hyperlipidemia? Other medication I'm on amlodipin 5, glimisave m2, vitD 60k, gemcal
Yes, you can, but...: That's a bad combination. You've got two sulfonylurea drugs (which will cause weight gain, and wear out the pancreas) and a very low dose of Metformin. I recommend increasing your dosage of Metformin to 2,000 mg per day--and adding Acarbose (or white kidney bean extract). If your glucose is not under control, add only as much sulfonylurea as you need. ...Read more
