On vyvanse 40mg and just had 1st zoloft 25mg last night. Had insomnia and diarrhea last night. Should I take it PM again or should I try morning?
Morning dosing.: Zoloft is a serotonin increasing agent, via the blockade of transporters in the nerve nets that remove it from the synapse. Also it does this to a lesser extent with dopamine, thus increasing that neurotransmitter. The GI tract is heavily innervated by serotonin and many people develop diarrhea or other GI symptoms from it. Also taking it at night is a bad idea due to increased dopamine. ...Read more
Was put on VyVanse (lisdexamfetamine) 40mg and Zoloft 25mg. On Wed. She has complained of headaches and blurry vision is this normal?
Medications: It is not surprising to have these side effects. If both medications were started at same time then consider contacting your doctor to make them aware of this. This side effect may get better in a few days or your doctor may decide to hold one of the medications and continue with the other to give the body time to adjust. Do not make changes without consulting your physician. ...Read more
I was prescribed Zoloft about 3 months ago, I've experienced a lack of motivation I am also on vyvanse. Is this normal? Before I was on Effexor (venlafaxine)
I had a hair follicle test that showed positive for methamphetamines. The drugs I take are Zoloft, vyvanse, trazadone, and Wellbutrin. Why??
Most likely Vyvanse: Vyvanse is a prodrug that is metabolized into amphetamine by its passage through the liver (its chemical name is lisdexamfetamine), so it is not unusual. Wellbutrin is also a very similar molecule to amphetamine, but I am not sure whether it would show up as a positive in a hair follicle test. ...Read more

Can vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and luvox have interactions and if so what are they? Also is there an interaction between vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and zoloft?
Yes. But: Luvox and Zoloft (SSRI meds) can interact with Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) to boost the effects of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) possibly giving you more side effects such as jitteriness, tremor. But the combination is fairly common, effective and safe with careful medical supervision. I hope this helps. ...Read more

2 months ago I was diagnosed with a macro prolactinoma (prolactin lvl of 4, 000)surgeon said he wasn't worried and endo put me on dostinex (cabergoline). Is this ok?
Likely: Prolactinomas are generally treated medically not surgically but response to the medication should be monitored by imaging. Additionally I recommend all patients with pituitary tumors to see an endocrine specialist to check other hormones and an opthalmologist to assess visual fields. ...Read more
I was diagnosed w/ a prolactinoma in 2012, I take Parlodel/Cabergoline but my levels are still around 250-350. What can I do besides surgery for this?
I am 53 years old, I have a prolactinoma for 8 year and took dostinex (cabergoline). 5 mg, the last year I have a very irregular period & this lasts me since dec 31?
Likely that severe hypogonadotropic hypogonadism has other causes than just prolactinoma if cabergoline fails to normalize testosterone levels?
Yes: If a pituitary growth is big (2 cm), and the initial prolactin wasn't very high, then the growth is most likely not a prolacatinoma. This non-functioning growth can "take up normal space" in the pituitary and physically suppress the hormones that control testosterone production and release. How big is your tumor and what was the original prolactin level? ...Read more

Will cabergoline treat a slight gynacomastia from prolactinoma-.5mg 3x/wk, now hormone lvls are normal but soreness in breasts, will it recede normally?
First, cabergoline: Is generally given only 2x/week. If prolactin levels have been normalized, there may be a slight reduction in gynecomastia, but once the tissue has increased, it may never return to prior status. It should, however, not worsen as long as prolactin levels remain normal. ...Read more
Are there other medications to treat a prolactinoma other than cabergoline or bromocriptin? I've heard side effects are awful.
I'd give them a try: Everyone responds differently so if give them a try (they r the only meds available in usa), because so far all of my patients have tolerated them quite well. Slow dose up titration may help you. Most common side effect is constipation. May increase obsessive compulsive tendencies, so watch for that too. ...Read more
