Took two Halcion .25 mg tablets for dental work. Currently on TriLoSprintec birth control, should I use a back up method? Does Halcion interact w/ bc?
Unlikely: A single dose of two Halcion 0.25 mg tablets is unlikely to expedite the metabolism of hormones that are in birth control pills and render the birth control pill ineffective. For your own peace of mind, however, you may want to consider using a back up method. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Duefor flexi-sig, 20mg temazepam did nothing last time, doc will prescribe diazepam she said.What dose and how long before should I take?Extreme anxiety
Its up to your doc: Without knowing more about you it would be irresponsible and frankly not possible to determine an appropriate dose for a procedure. In people for whom typical doses aren't adequate we will often bring in an anesthesiologist to control the level of sedation. We don't want to stop your breathing which happens occasionally even with small doses. Pre procedure 5-10mg of diazepam is typical. ...Read more

Can u take tramadol indefinitely? I take 75-100mg daily for 5 yrs now& never built tolerance. Helps w/energy + makes me happy. What r longterm negativ
Tramadol: Long term use of any pain medicine is not without risk. There is however no maximum length of time you can take the medication. My only concern is that you say that it "helps with energy and makes me happy". Tramadol is not a stimulant and is not a "happy pill", it is a pain medication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes, 50-100 mg: It's perfectly safe to take coq10. Take ubiquinol, the active form, which is better absorbed than the ubiquinone form. Try 50-100mg with food early in the day. Your TSH indicates you'd most likely feel better taking more thyroid.Most hypothyroid patients feel better with adding liothyronine.Ask your doctor to test your free t3. Increase dose until your free T3 is in upper half of the normal range. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can someone who cannot tolerate celexa and Lexapro (escitalopram) tolerate zoloft? My dr said Zoloft is a stronger medication, but me wants to try.
Not stronger: Zoloft is not really stronger than Celexa or lexapro, (escitalopram) but they're not the same exact molecule. All 3 are ssri antidepressants. They differ a little in their activity with certain neuron receptors and reuptake of ne, for instance. If you need a medication from this class, it's worth trying zoloft very gradually. You might tolerate 1 more than the others. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Let concerns motivate you. Hope it's good. ...Read more

Insomnia bad, i put on Prozac 10 mg and trazadone 50 mg. Taken 2 days. I was taking serqouel 50 mg & worked for a while but stopped working. Dr. Said stop seroquel (quetiapine) since given new meds, what do ido?
Maybe more trazodone: You have to talk to your doctor about what to do. We can't advise or treat you over the internet. But here's something to consider: seroquel (quetiapine) 50 mg is stronger than trazodone 50 mg. The latter is usually a better choice for insomnia, but the dose may need to go up. Prozac (fluoxetine) may help depression or anxiety that interferes with sleep, but it takes a few weeks to work. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
