Iam taking cipralx 20mg per day and Xanax (alprazolam) 0.5 per day and I want to use fat reduction pills (lipo 6 black for woman does it have any drug interaction?

Iam taking cipralx 20mg per day and Xanax (alprazolam) 0.5 per day and I want to use fat reduction pills (lipo 6 black for woman does it have any drug interaction?

Don't; Probably Bad: We don't know what lipo 6 black does really. Many interactions can occur with prescription meds and these kinds of proprietary blends. The company warns regarding antidepressants (underground. Nutrex. Com/products/lipo6-black. Asp). Moreover, the stimulants can undo the effects of citalopram and alprazolam. It can even even produce a serotonin syndrome (ss) in combination (people have died with ss). ...Read more

Alprazolam (Definition)

Alprazolam is a short acting benzodiazepine, it does not last long in the system. So when used regularly with multiple doses to treat anxiety, it is associated with inter-dose withdrawal, tolerance and a resulting increase level of baseline anxiety. So in anxiety clinics, we use it only in cases of " flight, dentist or other infrequent anxieties, ...Read more

Is there a drug interaction for Ceftin (cefuroxime) and Omeprazole? I am on ceftin (cefuroxime) 2x daily and Omeprazole 40mg daily. Can they be taken together?

Is there a drug interaction for Ceftin (cefuroxime) and Omeprazole? I am on ceftin (cefuroxime) 2x daily and Omeprazole 40mg daily. Can they be taken together?

Med interactions: According to a drug interaction check, the absorption level of the Ceftin (cefuroxime) may be affected by lowered stomach acid which is what omeprazole does. It appears that any medication that lowers the acid would have this affect (for example, Zantac or Pepcid). This would reduce the effectiveness of the Ceftin (cefuroxime). You may want to discuss this with the doctor who prescribed the Ceftin (cefuroxime) or your pharmacist. ...Read more

My doctor prescribed 40mg omeprazole in the morning. Also, he prescribed celexa 20mg and Xanax (alprazolam) XR 1mg in the evening. Any thoughts as to the safety of this combination? I get anxiety taking drugs.

As above: All medication can have side effect, but we take them when we need them. Medication that r written by u prescriber it make more sense to ask him /her about the safety issues. That way u show them u trust and appreciation. I am not aware of any drug interaction among these medication. However, people reaction can vary. If u notice any adverse event talk with u prescriber. ...Read more

Safe to take omeprazole 40 mg in morning for gastritis and 1mg xanax (alprazolam) later in day? Safe combination? Also can I take the omeprazole before bed instead?

Safe to take omeprazole 40 mg in morning for gastritis and 1mg xanax (alprazolam) later in day? Safe combination? Also can I take the omeprazole before bed instead?

Interaction but safe: Omeprazole can potentiate the level of Xanax, (alprazolam) thereby increasing effects such as drowsiness. Separating the timing of medications as you mentioned may decrease such an impact. It is usually recommended to take omeprazole before a meal, and preferably in the morning. Talk to your doctor if you encounter any untoward effects. ...Read more

I take Xanax (alprazolam) XR 1mg and celexa 10mg. Just started celexa yesterday. Can I take Tums with this combination. What about 20mg of omeprazole?

Caution!: Omeprazole raises the blood levels of Celexa which can lead to serious side effects. In general the highest dose of Celexa while on Omeprazole is 20mg per day. You really need to ask your doctor or prescriber to guide you as I do not know enough about your general health.
As far as alternating xanax (alprazolam) and Celexa my opinion is that this is not a good idea. Celexa is taken every day. ...Read more

Bleeding ulcer. Started omeprazole today. Fairly bad panic attack tonight. Took xanax (alprazolam). Unusual attack though. I feel very strange. Should I stop omep?

Check w/ Doctor 1st!: People should never just stop taking a Rx without telling their doctor. They may say fine, but they may warn you of serious withdrawal effects and guide you to a safe landing. With only one dose behind you - it should be okay - but as a general rule - advise the doctor. You might be offered an alternative that will be better. Best wishes. ...Read more

My doctor prescribed Prozac 20 mg, Xanax. 25 usually take half when needed. I've had bad heartburn. Is it okay to take omeprazole also as I have been.

Possible.: Prozac, xanax and Prilosec can all interact with each other in the liver. However Prozac and xanax interact with each other too. Adding Prilosec makes the chance of interaction higher. However, alot of people take this and have no troubles. Perhaps if this is for short term problem a simple anti-acid may work just as well and have no side effects. ...Read more

Need some docs opinions- which birth control type do you think is best in terms of drug interactions w/prilosec, xanax, (alprazolam) & zoloft? Can I even use it?

Need some docs opinions- which birth control type do you think is best in terms of drug interactions w/prilosec, xanax, (alprazolam) & zoloft? Can I even use it?

Am unaware of issues: With any form of oral contraception and the medications listed. The decision should be based on your lifestyle issues, preferences, potential side effects and cost. Your family physician or an ob/gyn (or np/pa-c, as the case may be) can better advise you. It is probably going to be more of an issue in terms of other habits, particularly smoking. If you smoke cigarettes, ocps are more risky. ...Read more

I can't tast much for over a week. Was taking Prilosec and Xanax (alprazolam) have stopped both. My symptoms are throat tightness and pain, gerd. No cold.

Never stop your meds: Never stop your meds w/u consulting your dr. First. Especially something like xanax (alprazolam) where you can experience withdrawl sx even seizures. Call your dr. Asap. Smoking can cause loss of taste.
Ask dr. About seeing a specialist if he/she cannot help. Dentist, ENT? But I think the smoking is the problem perhaps along with alcohol.Later and xanax (alprazolam) not good anyway! Also therapy not psych meds! Good GI w/u. ...Read more

Why would my urine test show neg. For Xanax (alprazolam) 0.5mg nightly I have severe depression and panic anxiety attacks, I take plavix75mg, celexa40mg, metoprolol er50mg, pravastatin sodium40mg 81mg asprine, and Prilosec otc

Low dose: That is a very small dose of xanax, (alprazolam) and your urine, especially if you drink lots of fluids, may be dilute enough that the results fall below the limits of detection of the specific test and will be reported as negative. In general, the first morning urine of the day is the most concentrated, and that specimen is more likely to be positive. ...Read more

Why does wellbutrin (bupropion) say to not consume alcohol if there is no drug interaction?

Product Labels: Product labels are designed to ensure that people who use the medication are as safe as possible, also some of the labelling is based on the class of agent rather than on specific information about the medication. So, you will find that the don't consume alcohol warning is on almost every, if not every, psychotropic agent. General experience is that a glass of wine at night is fine. ...Read more

Is there a drug interaction between cipralex and ionix supreme from isagenix? Or with Ritalin or concerta?

Is there a drug interaction between cipralex and ionix supreme from isagenix? Or with Ritalin or concerta?

Interactions Meds: Hi Xcabrera,
I tried to check interactions for you however in US Cipralex is Lexapro or generic escitralopram. An antidepressant medication.
Perhaps the spelling of Ionix supreme is different.
Since most of our drug interaction data bases are for meds in the US I suggest you consult a local pharmacist in Canada.
Great question Thanks
