Bipolar(controlled -lamictal, carbamazepine), anxiety-semi-under control (lorazepam, temazepam, cymbalta) and ADD problematic- considering Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ?

Bipolar(controlled -lamictal, carbamazepine), anxiety-semi-under control (lorazepam, temazepam, cymbalta)  and ADD problematic- considering Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ?

So much medication: It might be necessary to take some drugs but I question the risks already and adding the new one is especially bad w/ cymbalta (duloxetine). It can cause severe anxiety! Also serotonin syndrome. Almost all of your meds combine to cause a host of symptoms like dizziness, confusion and general impairment. Please consider a good psych eval and adding good psychotherapy to lower need for Rx and help them work! ...Read more

Can i take Zoloft with wellbutrin, adderall, abilify, (aripiprazole) Neurontin and lamictal?

Lot of medications: I'm not sure whether these are all prescribed by the same physician? It sounds as though your bipolar disorder (from the additional info you supplied) may be quite hard to manage, and meds have been added but none removed. Perhaps you'd benefit from a second opinion about your case and possibly simplify your regimen. It could also be that your symptoms demand high intensity measures. ...Read more

The interaction between klonopin (clonazepam) and tegretol:tegretol lowers klonopin (clonazepam) by 30% -does klonopin (clonazepam) raise tegretol ?

The interaction between klonopin (clonazepam) and tegretol:tegretol lowers klonopin (clonazepam) by 30% -does klonopin (clonazepam) raise tegretol ?

Not great combo: Concomitant administration of clonazepam (Klonopin) and carbamazepine (Tegretol) resulted in a 22% increase in clonazepam clearance and a 20.5% decrease in carbamazepine clearance. Carbamazepine is well known to induce its own metabolism as well as the metabolism of other meds making it difficult to manage. Consult provider. Bottom line - Klonopin is not likely to raise Tegretol levels. ...Read more

Will taking 1200 mg seroquel (quetiapine) harm me?

Seroquel (quetiapine): Maximum FDA recommended dose for Seroquel (quetiapine) is 800 mg daily. Physician/prescriber can use a higher amount off-label if it is believed a particular patient will benefit & the patient is fully informed that the dose is higher than shown to be effective.

Can I take abilify, (aripiprazole) Prozac, ativan, trazadone and lithium together?

Yes but: This seems a bit much for anyone. Is there a way that you can speak to your doctor about streamlining your meds. The doc is treating you for bipolar issues,anxiety, depression, and sleep disorder. I suggest that you see if this doc or another can put you on a regimen that might help you sleep and still take care of the problem. Have the doc consider remeron (mirtazapine) ...Read more

Yes & yes, BUT...: ...you didn't just wander into a pharmacy and made an impulse purchase. You got Rxs from a doctor for a reason, not just on a whim. Why are you trying to go around him/her?

If by doctor's order: If you're taking these medications on doctor's order then, I cannot tell you NOT to take either one of them or any of them. But if what you're asking is whether or not it's SAFE to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) with all the other medications or whether or not it's really NECESSARY for to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) given the rest of the drugs you're taking then, that discussion should really be with your prescribing doctor. ...Read more
