Is it safe to take ritalin and strattera and Zoloft and wellbutrin (bupropion) and omega 3 with ginko biloba together ?
Polypharmacy: Two stimulants + two antidepressants + two supplements is a lot of chemical! A physician and/or pharmacist should review this regimen and the doses. Ginko can enhance the effects of some antidepressants so dose modification may be in order. Many of these products are metabolized by the liver, so monitoring of your liver functions would be wise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Re-evaluate: There is no problem with taking biotin and a multi-vitamin. Be sure it has methyl folate (folic acid) 500 mcg and methyl cobalamine 500 mcg. Check 25-oh vit d and ferritin level and make sure these are in middle range or higher. Look at life style and go towards health with less medication if possible. ...Read more

I take atenolol & Zoloft (sertraline) daily. I'm tired & have no energy most days. I take vitamins & hCG 4 w.Loss.Could these be causing me harm by interacting?
HCG diet: Depending on the doses, atenolol and zoloft (sertraline) should be okay together. I'm wondering what type of diet you're following with HCG -- many HCG protocols recommend a 500 calorie/day diet which is very limited. The idea behind using HCG is that you're not "supposed" to be hungry on that low intake, but it doesn't work that way for everyone! you may need more food than this, & fatigue may result. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
