Diet supplements and mental health medication interactions

Can I take diet supplements while I'm taking mental health meds such as latuda, buspirone, doxepin and aripiprazole? ## Hello, Bobby! How are you? It really depends on what supplements you want to take, some are safe, according to FDA reports, and some are not. Can you please post back with more details? The NIH warns that some supplements can cause a possibly dangerous condition called Serotonin Syndrome, when mixed with some supplements and herbal products, this condition has been known to be fatal, in some cases. ## Oh please talk to your doctor. Those are some heavy duty meds and any supplements that affect dopamine will probably be problematic.

Coming off Invega Sustenna

Hi, I was given Invega Sustenna at 100mg a month for 10 months since Dec 5th. My last shot was on August 29th 2013. The medication gave me severe anhedonia and I have lost the motivation and willpower to do anything. I can no longer experience joy, happiness, or pleasure from anything I do and I have no interest in doing anything. I constantly feel restless and uneasy and I just can't shake this feeling away no matter what. All of these started about a week after my first IV. I have been off this medication for almost 3 months now and I have yet to feel any improvements. I have read that it has a long half life of 25-49 days and that it can stay in your body for 300 days. So does that mean I will have to wait a year to start feeling better? Any info on someone who has been off this ...

started on seroquel for alcohol addiction

I was 1st prescribed seroquel when I entered treatment for alcohol addiction, anxiety, and depression. I am proud to say I am now 5-1/5 years sober and wondering if or why I still need to be on this medicine. I take 100mg @ night along w/ 50mg of Zoloft. My biggest concern is if I will ever get to sleep w/o aid ## If you've been taking them for years, actually even if you've just been taking one of them for years, then the best way to stop taking them would be to do a slow taper. Otherwise, they tend to cause rebound effects, so you may experience symptoms such as severe depression, insomnia, irritability and etc. Learn more Seroquel details here. Learn more Zoloft details here. If you do it that way, then there will most likely be a brief period of insomnia and some other mild ...

Seroquel Questions and Slow taper?

Hello, I am a 48 year old woman and I have been on 100mg of seroquel at night for 8 years for depression and sleep. I need to slowly taper off this. It seems it is making me even more tired and I sleep and sleep for very long hours. I have a lot of issues with it. I have a few questions. I take the 100mg tablet at night. I also have some of the 25 mg and was going to use those to taper. But even though I know 4 of the 25 mg tablets are 100mg, It seems to work different when taken that way? Anyone else notice this? Should I just try to cut up the 100mg and taper that? I wanted to take 75mg and take the other 25 mg tablet and cut it up. I want to do a very slow taper. I would be happy to taper 25 mg over 2.5 to 4 months. I have tapered off other things in the past that I took for fibromya...

My Mother Is A Schizophrenia Patient Aged 65she Was Given Chlorpromazine For Period Of 13 Years And Recently Doctor Changed To Olanzepineshe Did Wellb

kindly advise is it safe to use qutipine to a 65 year old patient as she is drowsy all throughout the day.she was on chloropromazine for 13 years recently changed to olanzepine which worked well.but doctor has changed to qutipine which is acting like a sedative.what shall we do ## Slowly decrease the dose ## I would try zyprexa again, without the clozeril. Another hip drug is mirtazapine. The use of seroquel is indicated for geriatric dosing - just keep it al low as possible because it makes just about anyone very sleepy especially at the lower geriatric doses.

Does a child need Abilify 5 Mg, Bupropion 75mg, and Chlorpromazine 25mg for Bipolar and ADHD?

My foster child is on Ability 5 mg, Bupropion 75 mg, Chlorpromazine 25mg 3 times per day for bipolar and ADHD. Does he need these meds that seem to do the same thing? I have the sense since he has been with me that he does not have anger problems any more than any other 11 year old child. He did tell me that he used anger to get away from the home he was in because he was being beaten by an older child. I will admit he may be adhd but bipolar you can't make me believe. ## I'd suggest discussing it with his doctor and/or getting a second opinion. It is an unfortunate fact that many children end up over medicated and many doctors don't review what the child is taking and just leave them on them, rather than do a review and see if it is needed any longer. Have you talked to any...
