A class difference: There are generally two main classes of antipsychotic drugs: first and second generation. While it is generally true that there are no major differences in effectiveness between the two classes, second generation antipsychotics tend to have a less severe side-effect profile. This is especially true for a condition called tardive dyskinesia which is more common in first generation antipsychotics. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Found 2 medications that take away my mystery chronic body pain the day after taking them. doxylamine succinate And diazepam, what could pain cause be?
Take a deep breath: Some good news and some that can be difficult. The good news: You've found things that work, there's nothing seriously wrong or likely to worsen. The hard stuff is that you're suffering from tension/anxiety. The antihistamine helps you get better rest which can help neck and eye pain but can make you groggy. The Valium calms you but is best for specific stressful events. Find CBT therapy for help. ...Read more

Can switching medication, metropolol tartrate to succinate, cause dizziness and fatigue; if it does will it last for a couple of days?
It's dose dependent: The difference between the tartrate and succinate formulation is the half-life (how long the medicine is active in your blood stream). Milligram for milligram, they're equivalent: e.g. 50 mg of met tart 2x a day is the same as 100 mg of met succ once a day. If your overall dose is increased, you could experience fatigue and dizziness till you get used to the new dose. Be sure your BP isn't too low. ...Read more

I just noticed some hair loss on far head very little. Could this be from medications? I am taking metoprolol succinate. Been on it for 14 months.
Not likely : Angela, while any side effect can theoretically happen with any drug, hair loss is not a common side effect of metoprolol. One thing you may want to check is to make sure your thyroid levels are normal as that can impact both blood pressure and hair growth. I'd suggest a call to your primary care provider ...Read more

What should be looked for if 600 mg of thorazine (chlorpromazine) was mixed with 100 mg of loxapine?
Antipsychotics: Those are considerable doses of very potent (and rarely used) medications ... Which essentially work on the same systems in the brain, so I'm slightly puzzled why you'd need both. Nonetheless, the largest concern for me would be extrapyramidal side effects, weight gain, somnolence, prolactin changes and tardive dyskinesia. Talk to your psychiatrist continually ... Hope that helps! ...Read more
I don't suggest it: Loxapine is a major tranquillizer used in conditions like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Beer is not good for either of those conditions. If you are truly talking about ONE beer, on occasion, it should not be a problem. However, my experience is that people say "one" when they mean 6 (or 12, or 24). Larger amounts of alcohol contribute to psychiatric problems and interfere with medications. ...Read more
