I have ITP - never needed treatment. I'm on Prozac for anxiety. What can I take that is safe if I have a headache? Tylenol (acetaminophen)? Aleve?

I have ITP - never needed treatment. I'm on Prozac for anxiety. What can I take that is safe if I have a headache? Tylenol (acetaminophen)? Aleve?

Acetaminophen: Acetaminophen (Tylenol (acetaminophen) and many other over the counter meds) is safe because unlike Aleve (ibuprofen) it has no effect on platelet function. Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) do affect platelet function, which increases risk of bleeding, which is already increased in ITP due a lower platelet count. ...Read more

Is taking tylenol (acetaminophen) pm and Prozac safe with palpitations? Palps started bf starting prozac. Ekg, holter, echo, and stress test were normal.

Side effects: Tylenol (acetaminophen) pm shouldn't cause or aggravate palpitations. Prozac especially in higher doses can. Has the Prozac made you more aware of palpitations? Caffeine, alcohol and nicotine can aggravate palpitations also. Did you have palpitations while you had the holter on and if so did it show any abnormal beats or rhythm at that time? If not then perhaps you just have periods of a more forceful beat. ...Read more

Taking Tylenol regularity but never more than the recommended dose for last few weeks. Social drinker. I'm worried about l have liver damage. Symptoms?

Taking Tylenol regularity but never more than the recommended dose for last few weeks. Social drinker. I'm worried about l have liver damage. Symptoms?

See your doctor.: Initially, there are no symptoms to the kind of damage that Tylenol can do to the liver. Although you are likely to have not done any damage to the liver if you followed the directions, it would be prudent to get some blood drawn to be sure. It is a simple blood test. If you are worried, I would try to limit Tylenol and avoid alcohol until you have the blood test. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it safe to take n-acetyl l-tyrosine while on prozac (fluoxetine)?

Is it safe to take n-acetyl l-tyrosine while on prozac (fluoxetine)?

Avoid: Not sure about how well n-acetyl-l-tyrosine is absorbed and metablized in the body. However, the base component, tyrosine is an Amino Acid that is in the precursor pathway for Dopamine production. Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter in certain parts of the brain.

I have been weaning off Prozac (fluoxetine) for 2 weeks can I now try l-5-htp?

I have been weaning off Prozac (fluoxetine) for 2 weeks can I now try l-5-htp?

Why substitute?: Prozac (fluoxetine) has long acting metabolites and therefore usually does not need to be tapered off unless their are other issues.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy & relaxation training would seem to be a better choice than more and certainly unproven homeopathic herbal choices. Dealing with the underlying cause of symptoms is always
the better choice than band aids. ...Read more
