Work w/ provider: Glad you are doing very well. But, ALWAYS try to work w/ the provider when stopping a medication. That way, if any problems arise, they'll be addressed rapidly and you'll be much safer. It's part of their responsibility to support you through the entire treatment. It's yours to be responsive. Best wishes! ...Read more

Is shakeology safe to take with beta blocker, synthroid, (thyroxine) and Zoloft and Ativan?

Not with Synthroid (thyroxine): Shakeology is a protein/nutrition supplement. It is probably okay to take with other meds, but Synthroid (thyroxine) should always be taken by itself, on an empty stomach, and wait at least 40-60 minutes before eating. ...Read more

See your doctor: It sounds like you need to be back on the zoloft (sertraline). We do not usually recommend that people stay on ativan long term. It is usually used initially to help people calm down then tapered off as the zoloft (sertraline) or other medication begins to work. We cannot prescribe psychiatric medications on healthtap so see your doctor. Exercise and avoiding alcohol and stimulants will help also. ...Read more

If you are asking: about possible drug interactions- yes, Lyrica (pregabalin) may have moderate interactions will zoloft, buspar, risperidal and ativan. There are no reported drug interactions with lipidil EZ. That does not mean that the drugs shouldn't be used together but I do hope that your medications are being managed by a psychiatrist with this complexity. ...Read more

Never heard of this: Effect of Abilify (aripiprazole) to increase libido, but it might persist. If not, wellbutrin (bupropion) in low doses -50-75 mg can also increase libido for some people. Your doctor can also test your testosterone and other hormone levels to see if that is responsible. ...Read more

Im on Zoloft and ativan  and Abilify (aripiprazole) and Buspar i stop Buspar 3dayes ago i feel my libido verry low and my erection ? Why did I have that

Common side effect: The number of antidepressants you are taking explains why you're having one of the most common side effects males have (loss of libido ; erectile dysfunction) on these drugs. While medications are responsible for much of these problems it may be that the mood disorder itself is also contributing. If sexual function was normal prior to taking these agents then, speak to your doctor about a change. ...Read more

Treatable: This is likely treatable. I assume you are seeing a mental health professional. Ask him/her if what you are describing as anxiety could be agitation. It is possible that you may need your medications tweaked or may need another medication added. ...Read more

Consult your doctor : Suicidal thoughts are a known side effect of all antidepressants in young people in their late teens. Most of the time the thoughts go away quickly and do not return. However, you should notify your doctor as soon as possible so the two of you can make a decision whether it is best for you to stop the medication or not. ...Read more

Zoloft (sertraline)- from 100 to 150mg

Could a change in my dosage of Zoloft (sertraline) affect how Ativan effects me? I was VERY addled the last time I took it.

Depression, Anxiety: I understand your concern. Zoloft (sertraline) is a medication for depression and anxiety. Ativan is a medication for anxiety. Ask yourself for reasons to take 2 medications for anxiety; and for increase of dose of Zoloft (sertraline) to 150mg/day which is a high dose. Using Ativan together with Zoloft (sertraline) may increase dizziness, difficulty concentrating and confusion. See a Psychiatrist for Diagnosis, Medication and Therapy ...Read more

Not advisable: Ativan will commonly cause amnesia. You should not drink in combination with the Ativan, the result can be as you found, but can be more serious including death. Your dose of Zoloft (sertraline) is very low, and not likely an interaction with either the alcohol or ativan. ...Read more

Sedation: Always discuss with your prescribing provider. These medications can used together with one caveat- taking Ativan and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) together may cause sedation. So, if you need to be awake in the middle of the day that could be a problem. Don't operate dangerous machinery or drive a vehicle if sedated. ...Read more
