Varies by response: Bupropion comes in several verstions--immediate release, twoce daily dosage form, and once-daily doseage form.

Acetaminophen/hydrocodone 5/500 maximum recommended doses?

What is the maximum dosage per day for Sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa) tablets?

Variable, but: In my experience, the maximum Sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa) dosing is the 25/250 tab four times daily, and if this seems to wear off, one can add Comtan (entacapone). Problem with going too high with L-DOPA is incidence of dyskinesias. ...Read more

Side effects of increasing Paxil (paroxetine) dosage?

Side effects of increasing Paxil (paroxetine) dosage?

Depends: Most patients do not experience side effects. For those that do, increasing the dose can lead to fear and reluctance. I always counsel patients, about to increase their medication, to recall any side effects when they started the med. They should expect the same side effects but to a lesser degree and shorter time. This occurs because the relative change in dose is smaller with each increase. ...Read more

Bipolar(controlled -lamictal, carbamazepine), anxiety-semi-under control (lorazepam, temazepam, cymbalta)  and ADD problematic- considering Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ?

So much medication: It might be necessary to take some drugs but I question the risks already and adding the new one is especially bad w/ cymbalta (duloxetine). It can cause severe anxiety! Also serotonin syndrome. Almost all of your meds combine to cause a host of symptoms like dizziness, confusion and general impairment. Please consider a good psych eval and adding good psychotherapy to lower need for Rx and help them work! ...Read more
