There any interaction between cymbalta (duloxetine) buspae Risperdal wellbutreinxl?

Too many meds: Taking all of these medications together is not a good idea. You run the risk of serotonin syndrome, a potentially lethal condition and you are at increased risk of seizures.

Cymbalta (duloxetine) and Wellbutrin are both antidepressants and you should be on one or the other ...Read more

Can i take Zoloft with wellbutrin, adderall, abilify, (aripiprazole) Neurontin and lamictal?

Lot of medications: I'm not sure whether these are all prescribed by the same physician?

I am on wellbutrin, ativan, atorvastatin, escitalopram, lisinopril, abilify (aripiprazole). Can i take propranolol for anxiety/bp?

I am on wellbutrin, ativan,  atorvastatin, escitalopram, lisinopril, abilify (aripiprazole). Can i take propranolol for anxiety/bp?

This will strengthen the effects of Propranolol so start with the smallest dose and monitor your blood pressure and heart rate. It may also make you tired. ...Read more

But if what you're asking is whether or not it's SAFE to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) with all the other medications or whether or not it's really NECESSARY for to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) given the rest of the drugs you're taking then, that discussion should really be with your prescribing doctor. ...Read more
