I have been on Lexapro 20mg for 2months? My doctor gave me Sedoquel XR 50mg to add on. is that ok? ?I take 3 meds now ! Lexapro 20mg at Morning and Sedoquel Xr 50mg at early evening and Embien CR 12.5mg 20mins before bed .
If your doctor prescribed it, it should be okay. I have been on Lexapro before and 20mg isn't that big of a dose. You should listen to your doctor. (:
since you don't trust your current doc, get a 2nd opinion. look for non-med alternatives to drug therapy like behavior modification, psychotherapy, yoga, diet change (no processed foods or caffeine), exercise daily, and a full medical exam by a primary care doctor.
hes your doctor, so it should be alright. is it the amount of medication your on or are you worried one will give a bad reaction off the others or what? I take lithium, seroquel, lamictal, & lexapro. everythings good with me :)
Antipsychotics are very toxic medications that can cause grave harm to your body and brain, especially with long term use. Do you have psychosis? Have you got severe mental illness that has failed to respond to anything at all? If not, antipsychotics should be avoided. They are a last resort medication. This class of drug routinely causes diabetes, major weight gain and with long term use, will shrink your brain. There are many many other problems with these meds - they are among the most dangerous prescriptions out there. Don't blow me off about this - many psychiatrists have blogs, and they are wringing their hands over the overprescription of antipsychotics for every darned thing. If you want to take the seroquel, have the pharmacist run all the drugs thru the computer to check for drug interactions.
