Bought some Mucinex dm today for cough and chest congestion. I also take 20mg of Lexapro (escitalopram). Drugs dot com says major interactions. Uhhhh? Can I take?

Bought some Mucinex dm today for cough and chest congestion. I also take 20mg of Lexapro (escitalopram). Drugs dot com says major interactions.  Uhhhh? Can I take?

Ask pharmacist or Dr: This is very troubling indeed. And everything I've read supports what you found. Don't risk a potentially life-threatening interaction but do try to find an alternative to Lexapro (escitalopram) w/ your doctor. It's not the guaifenesin part, so you could take Mucinex pills and gargle w/ salt water for throat pain and drink honey-lemon-tea-(bit of bourbon). Sorry, but you actually may find this to work better! ...Read more

Adderall, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and generic unisom sleep tabs are ok to all be taken together?

Adderall, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and generic unisom sleep tabs are ok to all be taken together?

Yes, But Why?: Medically, there should not be an issue with taking these at normal doses. However, i would be puzzled as to why you would take this combination together, especially the unisom and adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is likely to make it more difficult for you to fall asleep, which would counteract the use of unisom. ...Read more

Not at same time: Solodyn (minocycline) has many interactions; taking with calcium (usually found in multivits) can reduce absorption- they should be taken at least 2 hours apart. Solodyn (minocycline) kills our friendly intestinal flora which can lead to yeast overgrowth ; a wide range of side effects. It's wise to take probiotics ; not use it very long. Topical antibiotics ok. Regular Ibuprofen use can cause ulcers ; GI bleeds.See comment:. ...Read more

I'm taking 10mg of simvastatin every night, can I take raspberry ketones that contain grapefruit (powder)?

You could try it but be aware that if you get muscle aches, you may need to eliminate the rk or lower the dose of simvastatin. At 18, why are you taking Simvastatin anyway?! ...Read more
