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?

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 more

I have cml.  I take 600 mg tasigna-nilotinib daily, and4000 mg vit c per day and 5000iu vit d3.  Is it safe to take as much?  My doc  says yes.

Vitamins: Vitamins a, d, e, & k are fat soluble vitamins and so too much supplement can lead to toxic levels. Vitamin c is water soluble and so excess can be eliminated in the urine. Your likely ok taking the vit d due to your ongoing treatment. However, your physician should check your level every 6 to 12 months to insure the level is optimal and not a risk. ...Read more

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

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 more

Can i take coq10 as a supplement for good health. I am a hypothyroid patient, TSH 7.76 . Taking thyronorm 50 mg, if yes then what strength?

Can i take coq10 as a supplement for good health. I am a hypothyroid patient, TSH 7.76 . Taking thyronorm 50 mg, if yes then what strength?

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 more

Herdoctor has prescribed pradaxa 150mg daily, can she still take her 81 mg aspirin daily? How does pradaxa affect her kidney? Transplant done 2 yrsago

Renal dosages....: Pradaxa is a strong blood thinner (direct thrombin inhibitor); needs to be taken carefully to Kidney patients to prevent BAD outcomes. If Crealtinine clearance 15-30 cc/min dose rec is 75 mg bid (twice daily). So 150 mg daily dose is odd. SECOND, if creatinince clearances ...Read more

Can someone who cannot tolerate celexa and Lexapro (escitalopram) tolerate zoloft? My dr said Zoloft is a stronger medication, but me wants to try.

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 more

I currently take 90 mg cymbalta (duloxetine) and 1 mg kolopin daily for gad    Dr gave me aitivan for bad attacksas needed.  I'm having MRI is it safe to take?

No MRI interaction: I've not heard of a problem for people who take a lot of psych medications w/ having an MRI, but do trust yourself and consult the staff at the MRI service. Tell them your pills/doses and ask if they have concerns. You sound competent and cautious - that's good. Don't over-shoot into fretting. Note the answers and trust them. Let reassurance relieve you. Let concerns motivate you. Hope it's good. ...Read more

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 more
