Can you take Prozac and gabs at the same time

Ativan is a tranquilizer, and so are sleeping pills. I doubt that you should take them at the same time. Aks your doctor to be sure.

can you take 2 10 mg prozacs at the same time

can zolof and xanax taken at the same time

No you do not want to take two medications that make you drowsy at the same time.

I am on Prozac, 10mg. for daytime use and 25mg. of elavil to relieve insomnia due to use of Prozac. Seems to work quite well!

Yes. It is perfectly safe to take both Paxil (Paroxitine) and Ativan (Lorezapam) at the same time. i was prescribed both these meds for my anxiety and depression and have been taking them for 6 months.. they work great for GAD :)

you need to ask your pharmacist. that's what they are trained for.

I take them together at the same time. I have not experienced anything adverse thus far. It has been about two or three months.

I'm not a medical professional, but I have taken Ativan and hydrocodone together many times as they were prescribed to me. My psychiatrist prescribed the Ativan to me and knew I was taking hydrocodone for recent surgeries. I rarely take the two at the same time, but when I have in the past the most I ever took was 20mg of the hydrocodone with 2mg of Ativan. Hope this helps!

There is a moderate drug interaction when the medications Prozac and Concerta are taken together. These interactions include insomnia and should be discussed with the prescribing doctor.

I just found out from my Therapist yesterday that it is best to take Prozac in the morning because it interfers with sleep.

I've just been prescribed Reductil and the doctor made it extremely clear that you cannot take Prozac and Reductil at the same time. In fact you have to be at least two weeks clean of Prozac before starting Reductil. The pharmacist who filled my prescription too was very clear about not mixing the two types of medication. If in doubt yourself - take proper medical advice, face to face. Don't risk it!

Yes, benzo's are a very safe compound it would take a very large amount to get to lethal levels.

Both Ativan and melatonin can be used for sleep, but melatonin is not a depressant. While ativan will actual make you tired, melatonin simply promotes sleep. As melatonin does not depress respiration, it should be safe to take it with ativan at the same time, and to take one at any point after you took the other. Just remember, you should discuss all supplements with your doctor before use to prevent potential interactions.

I have been prescribed both, at the same time, by an experienced physician and they were not flagged at the pharmacy. I have taken both without a problem.

Yes, but you should discuss it with your MD and do it with their permission. You should always try to take it at the same time give or take one hour before or after the usual time.

You can, - I do. Prozac 40mg one time daily and wellbutrin 100mg 2 times daily. Works great !!!

should be ok, but ativan is a depressant tranquilliser so why would you need to take 5htp which is an atidepressant.?? There is a risk of doubling sedation in some and in others the 5htp will counteract the sedative of the ativan. I doubt either is what you want. I dont think its dangerous but just unnecesary. iF YOU ARE JUST TREATING ANXIETY Since they are both short acting, you should take the 5htp in the morning and the ativan at bedtime.

Prozac is used for depression, and vicodin for pain, if a person is not allergic to either med then they are often prescribed at the same time.

There have been reports of people taking Atvian and methotrexate together at the same time. However taking both of these drugs together can increase the risk of side effects such as dizziness and drowsiness.

because they are both SSRI's, the two combined, especially at high doses could result in serotonin syndrome.

Yes, I take Prozac 20mg daily and Skelaxin 3-5x day. There are no negative interactions. Skelaxin, however is metabolized through the liver and you should avoid taking large amounts of it with other medications that are also metabolized through the liver (like Tylenol).
