Dr prescribed elavil (amitriptyline) 50mg and Ativan .5 mg is it ok to take together 
?

Get second opinion: The combination could readily backfire, as the Elavil (amitriptyline) and Ativan can both cause anti-cholinergic side effects, and additive sedation, lethargy, and dizziness. Both very low dose, but nonetheless may cause more problems than success. Not clear why these two have been started together. ?Psych Concierge appt? ...Read more

What could cause frequent pvcs (benign) daily? Bupropion XL 150mg 3x daily, Prozac (fluoxetine) 20mg, or the combo?  Also take 200mg modafinil, levothroid 88mcg.

Hello. May I take Olazapine 5mg and lorazepam 1 mg or 2 mg with melatonin at night safely?

Hello. May I take Olazapine 5mg and lorazepam 1 mg or 2 mg with melatonin at night safely?

These three medications are best taken at night before bedtime as they are sedating. ...Read more

May take longer. : Zoloft and Cymbalta (duloxetine) are actually very different from each other. Cymbalta (duloxetine) is very potent and works on two different receptors (serotonin ; norepinephrine ) and many people take longer to get off of it. Zoloft works mostly on one (receptor) and 50 mg is a low dose. Talk to your doctor about this. ...Read more

4-21-14 Thyroidectomy r/t thyroiditis, goiter.  On Synthroid (thyroxine) 137 mcg- hypo s/s returning have felt great for months.  Would adding Cytomel help?

Not specific: The signs & symptoms of hypothyroidism are not specific for hypothyroidism (not a single one). Recheck your thyroid labs. If they're normal, your symptoms are due to something else. Having said that, I'm happy to do a trial of Cytomel with the Synthroid (thyroxine) in patients who want to try as long as I don't make them hyperthyroid. Some people report feeling better with comparable labs taking a little T3. ...Read more
