40mg fluoxetine-panic disorder, 180mg verapamil-cluster headache prevention (daily).Can I take rizatriptan pill 1hr after those meds for the headache?
May be risky. Taking Fluoxetine, a serotonin reuptake inhibitor, along with a triptan, a serotonin receptor agonist, increases the risk of serotonin syndrome.The syndrome consists of mental status changes, autonomic dysfunction, and neuromuscular abnormalities. Taking Fluoxetine with Verapamil, or Verapamil with Rizatriptan does not pose problematic interactions. Discuss concerns with doctor. Hope this helps.
Take all at the same time daily 40mg fluoxetine for panic disorder 180 verapamil for cluster headache and 20 nexium (esomeprazole). How long after can I have a beer?
Best Practice... May be best not to have a beer though we all recognize that is unrealistic for some people. However, studies have shown that people with moderate to severe depression and/or anxiety can be even more treatment resistant with just one drink (alcohol is a CNS depressant with increased anxiety as it's metabolized). That being said, one beer (12oz @ 5%) may be ok with these meds but not recommended. . Read more...
