Any interactions plaquenil methotrexate motrin800 Tylenol500 folic acid prilosec aspirin lopressor cartia imdur ambian singulair xyzal (levocetirizine) melatonin ?
Too many: You are taking so many drugs that it is difficult to tell whether drug interaction may occur. Even if you run a profile in Epocrates , it is impossible to tell whether a combination with another drug may lead to interaction. Thus you will require close monitoring by your doctor and be on the lookout for any adverse effects. ...Read more

Can i take enbrel (etanercept) and methrotrexate same day as antibiotic sulfamethoxale - trimethoprim. 50 mg enbrel (etanercept) 2.5mg x5.
Enbrel (etanercept) 50 mg sq x 3 months for RA + psoriasis. Very little improvement. Any downside to increasing to enbrel (etanercept) 50 mg sq twice weekly? Mtx not tolerated.
No real downside: Tnf inhibitors like Enbrel don't increase in toxicity like other meds do. Increasing the dose to 50mg twice weekly is a good idea.But, if you don't also take methotrexate, for any reason, you will be more likely to develop antibodies against the Enbrel and neutralize it--causing it to lose most or all effectiveness.If increasing Enbrel does not work, consider another med like Humira or remicade (infliximab). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Saw rheumy. Today.Gave me arava (leflunomide) 20mg+methotrexate 25mg+enbrel for psoriasis/psor.Arthritis.Is it safe, r all 3 used frequently/sometimes, opinion please ?
Psoriatic Arthritis: Methotrexate (trexall) is the most common dmard used to treat psoriatic arthritis. However, it has potentially serious side effects, including lung, kidney and liver problems. Using Arava and Methotrexate together my increase the risk of hepatotoxicity & leukopenia.I would just use a biologic like Remicade or Humira or Enbrel or stelara (ustekinumab) which should control your disease but this is my opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Medications: The brand names of some of the medications that you list are not known in the USA. Once again, would suggest that your pharmacist should have a computerized program that lists all drug interactions and therefore should be able to help you out. Sorry, hope this helps. ...Read more
No.relatively safe!: Sfz is one drug I use the most in patients with many diseases. Aside from an occasional "sulfa rxn", the most common side effect is stomach "queazyness". All individuals taking this drug need to be monitored with blood work at defined intervals (2-3 mo) and they should receive Folic Acid supplements. ...Read more
It depends: Sulfasalazine has a half life of 7.6 hr on avg. It's a short acting medication which is why it requires every 6-12 hour dosing. A drug is cleared from system entirely after 10 half lives so the drug should theoretically be cleared in 76 hrs or a little over 3 days. The metabolite of sulfasalazine, sulfapyridine has a half life of 10.4-14.8 h so it's cleared in 148 hrs from system ...Read more
Yes, sometimes: Up until the 80's we only had sulasalazine for uc. The main problems were headace and some rqshes usually due to the sulfapyridine moiety. Pure Mesalamine drugs such as asacol, (mesalamine) lialda, Balsalazide and others do not contain the sulapyridine part and therefore don't have as many problems with the drug. However sulfasalazine is still cheap and useful and should not be ignored. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
