Pristiq 25 Mg
I take these: valsartan(320 mg), amlodipine(10 mg), seroquel(100 mg), concerta(54 mg), depakote(500 mg), paxil(40mg), bupropion(300mg), and Nexium (esomeprazole) (40 mg). Can this combo cause severe low bp? Help.
Potentially yes: If you are getting lightheaded or dizzy from this combination you should contact your prescribing physicians or go to the er to have your medication adjusted so that you do not pass out.

Get second opinion: The combination could readily backfire, as the Elavil (amitriptyline) and Ativan can both cause anti-cholinergic side effects, and additive sedation, lethargy, and dizziness. Both very low dose, but nonetheless may cause more problems than success. Not clear why these two have been started together. ?Psych Concierge appt? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

May take longer. : Zoloft and Cymbalta (duloxetine) are actually very different from each other. Cymbalta (duloxetine) is very potent and works on two different receptors (serotonin ; norepinephrine ) and many people take longer to get off of it. Zoloft works mostly on one (receptor) and 50 mg is a low dose. Talk to your doctor about this. ...Read more

What could cause frequent pvcs (benign) daily? Bupropion XL 150mg 3x daily, Prozac (fluoxetine) 20mg, or the combo? Also take 200mg modafinil, levothroid 88mcg.
Your medications: The Modafinil is a stimulant which can cause abnormal hearth rhythms. Your levothroid, if not properly dosed could do it as well, ask your doctor for a blood test to make sure that dose is not too high for you. Being 58 years old, you could have heart problems unrelated to the medications. You should see a doctor to get this evaluated. ...Read more

Lopressor (metoprolol tartrate) 25 mg made me feel bad. Propranolol made me feel fine but i need a selective beta blocker. Which should I try?
Atenolol: Try atenolol - 12.5 to 100 mg (25 to 50 mg are the most usual doses). Atenolol is a beta 1 specific beta blocker that has the least ability to cross the blood brain barrier of all available beta blockers. It has no intrinsic sympathomimetic activity. It is intrinsically long acting and generally is given as a once a day dose. It's also dirt cheap! ...Read more

Yes.: I may have already answered it but neglected to address the Melatonin.

These three medications are best taken at night before bedtime as they are sedating. ...Read more

Yes: You may take these two medicines together. The Ibuprofen will not enhance the effect of the Lorazepam as it is not a narcotic. 600 mg Ibuprofen should not be taken more than every 6 hours. Speak to your Lorazepam prescribing doctor about this and other concerns. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
