I took 8mls oxycodone hydrochloride which is prescribed by my doctor along with 4 solpdeine by mistake. Is this dangerous? My husband is worried.
Accidental overdose: By "solpdeine" did you mean zolpidem ? In Any case it depends on the milligrams oxycodone oral usually is 5-10 mg per 5 mililiter and depends how tolerant you are to the medication ( in other words how long you been taking it) . If indeed it was Zolpidem ( Ambien ) that was too much however most likely you will be overly sleepy for a few hours , but if breathing is difficult further attention ...Read more

Sleep hygiene: I agree with dr. Yonus. Paxil (paroxetine) can be sedating which may improve sleep. Attention to sleep hygiene is also very important: 1. Keep a regular bedtime & wakening time (to include weekends). Get up the same time each day, regardless of what time you fell asleep. 2. Make a regular, relaxing bedtime routine. Relaxing rituals prior to bedtime may include a warm bath or shower, aroma therapy, reading, . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Colchicine: Colchicine comes in 0.6 mg tablets. Max recommended dose for familial Mediterranean fever is TOTAL of 1.2 to 2.4 mg (2 to 4 tabs) in one day, given in one or two divided doses. The dose for gout is less, but I doubt you have gout at your age. Colchicine can cause nausea, diarrhea and kidney problems, and few patients can tolerate 2 mg at one time. Call your Dr. ASAP if severe side effects. ...Read more
What should I do if I was prescribed a generic version of Effexor (venlafaxine) by my doctor and it isn't effective for me?
Switch: Generic versions of medicines in the U.S. Follow the same production methods and quality controls as brand medicines. If you are not responding to effexor (venlafaxine) generic, you may need something different or if you are not very depressed, simply talk therapy may work for you. The effectiveness of anti depressants depends on dose and they make more of a difference in severe mood problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My Doctor has prescribed me diazepam 4mg daily for chronic anxiety. I believed this med should only be taken short term? Addiction concerns valid? Thx
Concerns valid: Medication might be part of the approach to addressing this chronic disabling problem, but not usually the best first choice, especially potentially addictive ones like Valium. Would recommend asking your primary care provider to refer you to an experienced psychotherapist who has expertise in meditation among her/his approaches & who works closely with a psychiatrist if medication is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What do you suggest if my dr prescribed 50 mg of losartan and 25 mg of hctz (hydrochlorothiazide). is this normal?
BP medications: Your mother's doctor has diagnosed her with hypertension and started her on losartan, which is a BP medicine along with HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) that is a diuretic. HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) also lowers BP. I suggest that nothing needs to be done, as this is a normal way to treat high BP. ...Read more
