Diabetes non cot: Your friend should address this issue. How old she is, 43??, for how long has been managed with this medications ? and is an endocrinologist doing the management?

Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?
Probably Not: Especially for someone who is young. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't even get metabolized by the liver. That being said, it makes sense to monitor you liver w/regular lab-work & to ask yourself if exercise, nutrition, & meditation can help your symptoms & reduce your pill burden. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Fasting sugar values 90-110; pp values high 200-240. Metformin sr 1g at night, metphormin 500mg + glimpride in morning. Voglibose not effective. Help?
Other medication: You have mostly post prandial hyperglycemia. Metformin and glimeperide work mostly for fasting sugars, the voglibose can help with pp sugars, but it is a weak medication. One should consider being on either a glp-1 agonist (exenatide, liraglutide) or a dpp-4 inhibitor (sitagliptin, saxagliptin, linagliptin, alogliptin) as these are more effective for pp hyperglycemia. ...Read more

Interactions with adrena smart. Currently I am taking 300mg wellbutrin (bupropion) od, naproxen 500mg prn, tramacet prn ( naproxen /tramacet for grade 3 sprain)?
Hard to tell : Research is needed to best answer these types of questions. Unlike fda approved drugs, dosing for supplements like adrenasmart are not standardized and they are not rigorously researched, making their potential for drug-drug interaction unknown. Tramadol plus wellbutrin (bupropion) plus adrenasmart could conceivably precipitate seizure. Question is if adrenasmart is even needed for your "adrenal exhaustion". ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Right: While there are potential interactions between a few of your medicines, the coq10 should not interact with lexapro, (escitalopram) suboxone, atenolol, hctz, klonopin, levothyroxin, and vyvanse. With hypertension and hyperlipidemia, you might want to consider a regular regimen of low-impact exercise (walking in the sunshine) and eating mostly foods with a low glycemic index. ...Read more

28yo fem w/ depression, anxiety. Zoloft for ~10 yrs, 50mg then 75. Added welbutrin. Zoloft quit helping, tried lexapro (escitalopram). Big weight gain. Rec new drug?
Antidepressants best: Another antidepressant, possibly snri like Effexor (venlafaxine) may be more helpful at this time. Add ons such as gaba- calm and natural anxiety aids can help.

I have high bp,tachycardia, daily take Effexor (venlafaxine) XR, soma, ultram, zonegran, methergine, metoprolol tar, elavil, neurontin.What OTC cold med can I take?
I am on wellbutrin, ativan, atorvastatin, escitalopram, lisinopril, abilify (aripiprazole). Can i take propranolol for anxiety/bp?
Use a low dose: Both escitalopram and wellbutrin (bupropion) inhibit liver metabolism (which is how Propranolol is metabolized) and both will result is a stronger Propranolol effect. 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
