Can you take Lexapro and Ativan at the same time?
I was taking 60mg Cymbalta for 3 weeks to combat my depression and anxiety. The cymbalta was not effective and doc just prescribed Lexapro and Ativan. Answer #2 Lexapro and Ativan is the greatest combination I've been on for my anxiety and panic attacks (and I've been on A LOT of stuff), but to answer your question, yes they can be taken together
can i take lexapro and skelaxin at the same time
can you take lexapro and celexa for depression at the same time
Can you take lexapro and ginko biloba 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 zolof and xanax taken at the same time
It is not safe to take Lexapro, Vicodin and Klonopin at the same time as this combination can cause dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating.
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 :)
I have been for about 2 years
No you do not want to take two medications that make you drowsy at the same time.
My Dr. has prescribed both of these medications to me and I have no side effects at all from them. So I would have to say YES you can take Lexapro and Hydrocodone at the same time as long as you take them as prescribed.
Xanax can be prescribed by your doctor alongside lexapro and taking them at the same time is okay. I am on Lexapro and take Xanex for occasional bouts of anxiety or panic attacks. However, weening yourself off Lexapro with Xanex is probably not the best idea. If you are having withdrawal from Lexapro you should probably go back on it.
Highly not recommended but it is not fatal.
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!
Can you take adderall lexapro lamictal all same time I was perscribed lexapro and lamictal from same dr. then i went to diet dr. he perscribed adderall for weight loss i didnt tell him bout lex lami?
i know you can do lexapro and adderall at the same time since i am personal prescribed to both. I am not sure what lamictal is though. Just try to take the adderall in the morning and take the lexapro at night since they would work against each other and would cause more than needed stess on your liver.
I had the same question, I also took an ADD medication with Lexapro. I was prescribed them at the same time. I did my research and found that you should NOT start taking them at the same time. Start one and start taking the other about 2 weeks after or they will interact. But other than that, you can certianly take them at the same time. Depression and ADD seem to go hand in hand… Read More
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.
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… Read More
it is safe to be on all these medications at the same time; however, you should take your synthroid by itself, on an empty stomach, at least one hour before a meal to fully absorb it. the others are fine to take all at once. personally, i take my synthroid first thing in the mornng, mvi with breakfast, and lexapro at bedtime.
Lexapro and Buspar are medications used to treat depression and anxiety. They should never be taken together, since they can flood the brain with serotonin, which can cause seizures and heart problems.
It does not make a difference when in the day you take Lexapro; it is just important that you take it at the same time each day consistently. The best time of the day to take it is when you are most likely to remember to take it. ***It doesn't make a difference to how well they work, but it does make a difference to how your body reacts throughout the day depending on when… Read More
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.
no!! take at least 2hrs apart if you have filled these meds. at a paharmancy they give you printed instructions or should have tagged them for a counsel consult
Yes. My doctor prescribed 0.5 Ativan one twice a day and Prozac 20MG one every AM. Yes. My doctor prescribed 0.5 Ativan one twice a day and Prozac 20MG one every AM. Yes. My doctor prescribed 0.5 Ativan one twice a day and Prozac 20MG one every AM.
Lexapro made me very sleepy when I was taking it in the morning. I now take it before bed and my doctor agreed that this is the optimal time to take it.
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.
Lexapro can be taken any time of the day with or without food. This answer straight from the packet instructions.
Pristiq, which contains desvenlafaxine, is an antidepressant that affects the serotonin levels in the brain. Lexapro, being an SSRI, also affects your serotonin levels. You should consult with a medical professional before you attempt to take these drugs at the same time.
It it possible to take Valium (diazepam) and Ativan (lorazepam) at the same time however it is uncommon for both to be prescribed. However some doctors will prescribe Valium for continuous use, typically three times daily, and may give some Ativan to take as needed or panic attacks or insomnia. Keep in mind that Valium is a far less more potent drug than Ativan, 0.5- 1 mg is equivalent to 10 mg of Valium.
You should never take 2 lexapro at the same time. I did once because, well never mind, and its just not good for you. One is supposed to make your emotions stable but taking more than one is a huge body hazard. Please don't do it even just as some type of experiment. Drugs are not a joke. Thank you.
Until you die. There is no time limit.
Yes, Vicodin is used to treat moderate to above moderate pain and ativan is used to treat anxiety. If your doctor prescribed both of them to you then he/she believes you need both. If you take both at the same time or even in the same 1-2 hours of each other I wouldn't recommend you operate any heavy machinery like a car unless you have taken them both before and know how you feel.
totally! but i wouldn't recommend it! i think 5-6 will be a better place to start, then if that doesnt do it after mabey an hour, then take 1 or 2 more, after that you def shouldn't need anymore.
ABSOULTLY NOT! I have been taking Lexapro for about 10 years, and also Xanax for the same amount of time. Lexapro is a controler medication, and Xanax is short lived in the system, Lexapro takes about 3 weeks to enter the system, when Xanex takes about 15 minutes. Lexapro is used to control GAD when Xanax is used when an anxiety attack is happening. Think of the 2 as asthma medication. Lexapro is the Advair… Read More
My son used to take Lexapro and if he missed a day, pretty much nothing happened. You just have to remember to take it at the right time the next day. Don't double-dose!
Yes. Zantac (ranitidine) is used for GERD, and other stomach issues. Ativan (lorazepam) is a benzodiazepine, used for anxiety and seizures. There are no drug/drug interactions with these medications.
Serotonin syndrome is possible if you abuse cough syrup while on Lexapro. But stick to te recommended dose for a short period of time and you'll be fine. Source: I have been on Lexapro 20mg for 3 months and used Benadryl on it
With any drug you should always use precaution when mixing for the first time. Atenelol and Ativan can interact but it is highly unlikely. I am currently prescribed both and have not encountered a problem.
It depends. If you weren't prescribed by the doctor for this medication, don't take it. Because only your Doctor would know what dosage is recommended, when it comes to combining with other medications. Be careful. You can definitely overdose on Ativan, (Lorazepam) and Methocarbamol, (Robaxin).
Yes, it is safe to use the nicotine patch and Lexapro at the same time. There are no drug-drug interactions between the two medications and there are no disease states that call for the use of nicotine patch or Lexapro that would interfere in either of the medications efficacy.
These medications can be taken together, but there is a chance for interactions. The Xanax and Cozaar can decrease blood pressure; so watch for headaches, dizziness, and changes in heart rate. Xanax and Lexapro together can increase the side effects of dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. If you are having any problems or concerns about side effects, check with your doctor.
Drug interaction: Alcohol & Lexapro Lexapro does not interact with alcohol, the manufacturer recommends avoiding alcoholic beverages. http://www.pdrhealth.com/drug_info/rxdrugprofiles/drugs/lex1642.shtml True it does not effect the same part of the brain, but alcohol has an effect on any drug. Alcohol is a depressant and lexapro is an anti-depressant so drinking will lessen the effects of the lexapro. Anyone who is depressed or bi-polar should not be drinking anyways. LEXAPRO CAUSE SERIOUS DEPRESSANT EFFECTS TO NEW USERS. MIXING… Read More
They can be combined with no known interactions. Nevertheless, it is advised that if you need to take paracetemol on a long term basis that you speak with a doctor. Lexapro and Paracetemol are both heavily processed by the liver. While Lexapro is not known to cause liver damage, Paracetemol has been known to cause liver damage over time.
I have been told by my pharmacist that I am able to take cold medicines that are for daytime only. Something in the "night time" medicines, i.e. Nyquil, can interact with Lexapro. If in doubt, call the pharmicist and ask them! Hope this helps :)
They all cause drowsiness and target the same parts of the brain. Individually, in large quantities, can cause respiratory depression that can lead to death. Taking all 3 at the same time is not a good idea, but talk with your doctor first if you are still thinking of taking them together.
If you are looking to use HCG for weight loss, make sure you check with your doctor before discontinuing any medication. In terms of will lexapro affect weight loss on the HCG protocol, the answer is "maybe." Some medications can interfere with the protocol - but all this would mean is potentially slower losses. If you are concerned about the HCG affecting the effectiveness of the lexapro, you will need to check with your doctor… Read More
NO!!! Each of them is an SSRI, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor -- or serotonin booster -- and this will cause problems. i do, seems to work pretty good but i dunno see what works for u, (but really nothing can happen) I take prozac and was having an unusually rough time. My doctor prescribed Lexapro as well to get me over the hump I took Lexapro with Prozac together for a couple of months… Read More
You should take your next dose as soon as possible. If you have been on Lexapro for a long period of time then the withdrawl effects can be unpleasant, as in causeing anxiety and/or depression in a way worse than before. If you do not like lexapro you should notify your doctor and come off of it slowly.
Yes, You can take these drugs together but do not drink alcohol and do not drive. I am Prescribed 1mg of Ativan (lorazepam) 3 times daily and I have migraine headaches so sometimes I have to take these two drugs at the same time. Best to stay at home on these nights and chill out. Remember, combining these drugs and drinking alcohol can have fatal outcomes. Be Safe!
No. You're never supposed to take mental medication for life. You take them so you can live normally and go to therapy. Taking pills without going to therapy is a waste of time.
