Over 45 mg/day: Hi Melissa872 The books say over 45 mg can cause symptoms, and of course in very young children the amount you apparently took could cause major problems. I hope that by now you are hydrating, eating a high carb high bulk meal, and perhaps considering using miralax (polyethylene glycol) (over the counter laxative) to increase your retention of bowel content and speed passage through. If symptoms worsen, ER. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm on synthroid, lexapro, (escitalopram) Ativan, Vit D & ferrous sulfate.Can I take melatonin to help with sleep?
Melatonin is safe: In a neurologically normal, generally healthy adult, there should be no adverse effects from melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone naturally secreted by the body that is suppressed by daylight and climbs with darkness to help entrain the brain's clock to go to sleep. Melatonin does not interact with the medicines and supplements listed. Lower doses are closest to what the brain secretes. ...Read more

Crumbling discs on Oxycodone. taking levothy for hypothy i hve 25 mg of atarax (hydroxyzine) left from prev prescr can i take? severe anxiety ty
Psychiatrist put me on [paxil cr 12.5, wellbutrin (bupropion) 150, clomipramine 50mg, laxoberon] all od. My anxiety attacks gettin worse.Any advise to stop panic plz?
Unusual combination: Wellbutrin is unlikely to help anxiety at all. Either Paxil (paroxetine) (p) or clomipramine (c) would be sufficient for anxiety disorder, but usually at significantly higher doses. If both are continued as doses are raised, there is increased risk of serotonin syndrome and and of side-effects from just c, as p tends to raise levels of c. Laxoberon for constipation. Talk to your doc about this. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
