Risk: Every medication has risk. Nobody can guarantee that you won't have side effect or be injured by any medication you take. If your doctor prescribes these medications for you after knowing your condition, then that means he/she feels the possible benefit outweighs the risk. You have to decide whether you agree with your doctor or not. ...Read more

Can you take together 10 mg lexapro (escitalopram) , 25 mg lamotrigine 1200 mg fish oil and 1000 mg acetaminofen ?

Can you take together 10 mg lexapro (escitalopram) , 25 mg lamotrigine 1200 mg fish oil and 1000 mg acetaminofen ?

Yes, but...: Lexapro, (escitalopram) Lamictal, and Fish Oil are often co-prescribed. If fish oil is being used for therapeutic benefit, its good to know the EPA content of the capsules. EPA (not total fish oil weight) needs to be around 1000 to 1500 mg per day to impact mood (FYI). Acetaminophen at 1000 mg - as an occasional dose - is fine to take s the above. Frequent use, though, is to be avoided. ...Read more

I take ziac (bisoprolol and hydrocholorthiazide) 10/6.25 tab 1 day can I take 300 mg of magnesium citrate?

Typically, a magnesium supplement would not be expected to have an adverse reaction to this. Contact your physician for specific recommendation , especially if you have other medical conditions or laboratory abnormalities. ...Read more

Dear sir
i am taking nexum 40 mg +metronidazole 400 mg in morning  and 300 mg Zantac (ranitidine) evening time and 40 mg famotidine at night +metronidazole 400 mg ?

Your question...?: Your drug regimen is quite unorthodox--there is no apparent reason to combine two h2 blockers (zantac (ranitidine) and famotidine), nor is it clear what Metronidazole is treating here. Happy to assist, if we know what you're asking & you can provide a little more information please. ...Read more
