Can I take valium, synthroid, (thyroxine) and percocet with Dulcolax sensitive stomache for women for constipation? I am afraid to mix and I only this laxative available and I have not defecated pain medication.

Can I take valium, synthroid, (thyroxine) and percocet with Dulcolax sensitive stomache for women for constipation? I am afraid to mix and I only this laxative available and I have not defecated pain medication.

Yes: However, am concerned about combination of valium and percocet. Both are sedating and can mix in a deadly cocktail. Very worrisome.
Percocet is the cause of constipation--any way to cut back or talk to doctor about alternative pain control measures? Increase fluids, fiber, consider MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) which is gentle and effective too. Dulcolax tends to cause cramping; less so with miralax (polyethylene glycol). ...Read more

When I drink too much alcohol I start to shake, is this because of my medication escitalopram?

Sigh: You are on Lexapro (escitalopram) because you are depressed, and you are telling me you are drinking heavily! This is very bad for your depression and your overall health, and doesn't allow your medication to work. Talk to your doctor and get help! You should not be drinking even socially, let alone heavily. The shaking may indeed be a reaction to the combo. I am more concerned about ur drinking than shaking. ...Read more

What are some techniques to cope with anxiety? My parents don't want me on medication but I shake constantly and I worry about every single thing I do

General Anxiety: If you are medically cleared for any physical disorder, I would suggest trying some cognitive/behavioral therapy. Medication is not always necessary and you could be taught techniques to control your thinking and physical reactions. By the way, the worst thing you could be doing is panicking about the anxiety- this always makes things worse. ...Read more
