Would like to switch to st.Johns wort from 20mg of Prozac (fluoxetine) because of side effects been on Prozac (fluoxetine) for 8 mos. How soon could I do this?

Thirty-Five Days: Every medication has a half-life. This is the time it takes the body to eliminate one half of the med. I consider a medication to be eliminated after 5 half-lives. When the body begins to breakdown prozac, (fluoxetine) one of the byproducts is an active metabolite that has a half-life of 7 days. It takes about 35 days for total elimination. One should not take st. John's wort until Prozac (fluoxetine) is eliminated. ...Read more

Which would be more recommended, Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR 20 mg once a day or Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) ir 20 mg 2x a day? Any difference in side effects or effectiveness?

Depends on situation: There are a lot of factors that would need to be considered including lifestyle, capacity to readminister a medication throughout the day given the schedule, need for alertness at the very beginning of the day, frequency of the experience of insomnia, and sensitivity to appetite suppression. Also, it should be noted that Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) 20 mg twice a day would be twice as many milligrams of adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). ...Read more

Cholesterol karma: Lets start by saying statins simply control a risk factor (hypercholesterolemia). There is no evidence that they extend your life. The more important question would be, what are your current risk factors? Are you eating right? Exercising? Whats your bmi. What's your blood pressure? What's your cholesterol now? Talk to your doc. They can assess your risks and set you on the right course if action. ...Read more
