 Can I takeup to a 325 mg dose of a magnesium w/these daily medications? 20 mg viibryd, (vilazodone hydrochloride) 25 mg atenolol, 0.5 mg clonazepam, 100 mg gabapentin 50 mg tra

Yes: there are no contraindications with any medication, as far as I know. Magnesium is found in many foods, and magnesium deficiency has become more common, particularly with use of drugs like omeprazole (Prilosec), esomeprazole (Nexium) and similar drugs which markedly reduce stomach acid and impede magnesium absorption. ...Read more

Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?

Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?

Probably Not: Especially for someone who is young. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't even get metabolized by the liver. That being said, it makes sense to monitor you liver w/regular lab-work & to ask yourself if exercise, nutrition, & meditation can help your symptoms & reduce your pill burden. ...Read more

I was prescribed Prozac 40 mg, Ritalin 10 mg, Concerta 108 mg, Remeron 30 mg and Risperdal 3 mg. Is this number of drugs safe?

Depends...: on what you and your doctor decide together. There are theoretically some interactions among the drugs you've listed, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you will experience them. It's difficult to know all of the possible interactions when you have this many medications in combination. Some of the drugs' metabolism could be affected or you may have increased risk of side effects. ...Read more

Zyflo (zileuton) is so expensive, but effective, for me.  Is there a more affordable alternative?

Yes, maybe . . .: Zyflo & zyflo cr are brands of zileuton, which is a leukotriene inhibitor. Montelukast & zafirlukast are also leukotriene inhibitors that are available as generic. Ask your prescribing physician if one of these might serve as a less expensive alternative.

Yes: It's similar to singulair, (montelukast) but may work better for u. Other consideration to look at is silent reflux if u have tried many different allergy like meds and non work. Silent reflux from stomach can causes u'r symptoms too. The reason it's "silent" is because it does not cause pain or heartburn. ...Read more
