On trt. Three pills sublingually daily. Each pill is 50mg of t compounded with 0.5mg of armidex. Is this a scary dosage?

Safe testo dose: It appears you're taking 150mg and 1.5 mg. Of testosterone+arimidex sublingually on a daily basis. That is a very high dose of both substances. Typically men with low testosterone are treated with a topical, injectable or implanted pellets. Arimidex (anastrozole) may be used if there is an excessive build up of Estradiol in response to the testosterone therapy but at a much lower dose than you're receiving. ...Read more

What to do if I took 5 allergy tablets the dosage is 1 will I be okay?

What to do if I took 5 allergy tablets the dosage is 1 will I be okay?

Ok but...: As antihistamines have a high safety margin, you may just end up with dry mouth and perhaps drowsiness if you take 5 times the dose in one gulp. The question is why did you take so many at one time? The answer would be different when a decongestant is also present since such a high dose of decongestant can raise your blood pressure and heart rate significantly and potentially causing a stroke. ...Read more

Quetiapine 25 mg tablets are difficult to cut in half. What can I do to get a more accurate dosage if the tablets break or crumble?

Quetiapine 25 mg tablets are difficult to cut in half. What can I do to get a more accurate dosage if the tablets break or crumble?

Quetiapine tabs: If your doc prescribes 1/2 of a 25 mg quetiapine tab, but they crumble when you try to split them, try asking your pharmacist for a pill splitter. They usually cost a few dollars (maybe $3-4), and should split the pill nicely in half. You can also ask your pharmacist to split all the pills for you -- so you can pick up your medication all pre-split. I hope that helps! Be well :) ...Read more

Does the number of dose days per cycle in COC pills make a difference in health risks and side effects, or is the dosage per pill what matters most?

Does the number of dose days per cycle in COC pills make a difference in health risks and side effects, or is the dosage per pill what matters most?

Good question!: Most COCs today have low dose estrogen, ie 30 mcg or less, so they have very few health risk. Nuisance side effects improve with continuous cycling and less or no placebo days. Concerning health risks are rare and is mostly due to blood clots. Risk of blood clots increase with smoking, obesity, family history if blood clots, and immobility like after surgery or long plane rides. ...Read more

Recently placed on ramped up dose of bystolic (nebivolol) to 20mg. No problems with 5 or 10mg. Hanover feeling with 20mg pill. Is that a high dosage?

Recently placed on ramped up dose of bystolic (nebivolol) to 20mg. No problems with 5 or 10mg. Hanover feeling with 20mg pill. Is that a high dosage?

Incomplete data...: Yes, of course. But, it would be wise to re-ask this question with more facts such as what is your blood pressure now; what was it before? How soon or fast did the ramp up to the 20 mg dose happen. But, without your current blood pressure and a bit of history this question is not easy to give a full answer. ...Read more

I was prescribed Propranolol for motorway anxiety and took 40mg tablet 1 hour before a journey. I felt very 'other worldly' and spaced out and it didn't work for me, should I increase the dosage?

I was prescribed Propranolol for motorway anxiety and took 40mg tablet 1 hour before a journey. I felt very 'other worldly' and spaced out and it didn't work for me, should I increase the dosage?

Best to ask provider: Try to get advice from the prescriber. If impossible, you can probably safely double that dose, but don't do more than that w/o medical approval for your specific body and conditions. These drugs are powerful agents and that's why only a select group of licensed authorized professional can prescribe them or modify the specifics. Take your well-being seriously - you deserve to be treated w/ care! ...Read more

Does generic of Synthroid (levothyroxine) disperse the dosage equally throughout pill. I'm on 75mcg so if I cut in half will I get 37.5mcg?

Does generic of Synthroid (levothyroxine) disperse the dosage equally throughout pill. I'm on 75mcg so if I cut in half will I get 37.5mcg?

It's not the: Cutting in half that's a problem, as even if the cut is uneven it won't matter since the half-life of T4 is 7 days and the doses will overlap. The problem is that the generics aren't as reliable and the dose and potency will vary every time you get a new prescription, or the pharmacy changes suppliers, or with age and storage of the rx, etc. It is better and safer to stick w/brand name t4. ...Read more

I am thinking of reducing my mirtazapine dosage but I'm worried about symptoms returning. How soon would symptoms return once the tablet is stopped?

Several days: You may notice some rebound depression and anxiety symptoms after a few days of reducing the dose, but that should go away after a few days to a couple of weeks if you are feeling better and don't need to be on your current dose. If you do start to experience moderate to severe symptoms, go back to your usual dose. You should discuss a taper and plan with our pcp and/or your psychiatrist. ...Read more

Could splitting Zoloft (sertraline) tablets lead to recurrence of mdd symptoms due to dosage discrepancies? Was trying to use leftover pills my dr. Had me split.

Not necessarily: It depends if you are splitting the pills and now taking too low of a dose- that could cause a recurrence of depressive symptoms. But in general, it should be ok to split sertraline. The pills have a "score" which means it intends for the patient to cut or split it. ...Read more
