Can i take Zoloft with wellbutrin, adderall, abilify, (aripiprazole) Neurontin and lamictal?

Can i take Zoloft with wellbutrin, adderall, abilify, (aripiprazole) Neurontin and lamictal?

Lot of medications: I'm not sure whether these are all prescribed by the same physician? It sounds as though your bipolar disorder (from the additional info you supplied) may be quite hard to manage, and meds have been added but none removed. Perhaps you'd benefit from a second opinion about your case and possibly simplify your regimen. It could also be that your symptoms demand high intensity measures. ...Read more

Can I take abilify, (aripiprazole) Prozac, ativan, trazadone and lithium together?

Yes but: This seems a bit much for anyone. Is there a way that you can speak to your doctor about streamlining your meds. The doc is treating you for bipolar issues,anxiety, depression, and sleep disorder. I suggest that you see if this doc or another can put you on a regimen that might help you sleep and still take care of the problem. Have the doc consider remeron (mirtazapine) ...Read more

Can remeron bi taking with Zoloft and buspar (buspirone)?

Yes: They can be taken together, but usually aren't, since Remeron and Zoloft (sertraline) are both antidepressants. Remeron can sometimes be added to help with sleep, or to increase appetite. If this works, the Zoloft (sertraline) may be able to be weaned off. Good luck! ...Read more

Im on Cymbalta 60mg Risperdal 0.25mg can Abilify (aripiprazole) 1mg add to my medication because Risperdal Abilify (aripiprazole) both good for me?

That question is: A good one for your doctor. Those types of medication changes are best made in partnership with a physician who knows you, and your medication history, very well. It would be presumptuous of me to give you advice in this context, but your doc will be happy to discuss this with you at your next visit. Best wishes to you! ...Read more

Side effects of Depakote and zoloft (sertraline)?

Side effects of Depakote and zoloft (sertraline)?

Side effects.: All psychiatric rx's have side effects. If you check with side effects in the pdr, you will not want to take another drug. Mostly, your individual should be concerned about the drug/drug interactions. It is almost unamerican not to be polymedicvated. The prescribing md should talk with the patient about what the drugs will do and more importantly what the drugs will not do. ...Read more

Im on Zoloft and Buspar (buspirone) and Risperdal for deeprassnt  can Risperdal bi replace to remeron? For insomnia and anxiety and deeprassnt? ??

Different rationale.: The Buspar (buspirone) is often used for anxiety but it may take time for it to work. Zoloft is an antidepressant of the SSRI class , Risperdal is an antipsychotic but is used in small doses for severe anxiety. Remeron is an atypical antidepressant and is used more to stimulate appetite or improve your sleep. Please discuss this with your doctor. He has specific reasons for the use of each drug. ...Read more

Can i take Abilify (aripiprazole) and olanzapine together?

Can i take Abilify (aripiprazole) and olanzapine together?

Yes but: They are two meds of the same class but can feel very different. Abilify (aripiprazole) tends to cause insomnia while Olanzapine is very sedating. Raising the dose of Abilify (aripiprazole) may cause sedation at or above 20mg, reducing the need for olanzapine. Olanzapine has a lot of wt gain and problems with blood sugars and is usually reserved for patients who haven't responded to other agents. ...Read more

Taking Lamictal, luvox, (fluvoxamine) risperdol and klonopin.  Can I take adderall?

If by doctor's order: If you're taking these medications on doctor's order then, I cannot tell you NOT to take either one of them or any of them. But if what you're asking is whether or not it's SAFE to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) with all the other medications or whether or not it's really NECESSARY for to take ADDERALL (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) given the rest of the drugs you're taking then, that discussion should really be with your prescribing doctor. ...Read more
