I take trazadone for sleep, Cymbalta for Fibromyalgia, and now Adderall for ADHD. At times if the nerve pain is really bad i take Neurotin too, and Ibuphrofen. Sometimes i take Prevacid for Acid Reflux, and Metaformin for sugar control. Am i ok taking all of these meds together. i feel ok, but i dont know if i am poisoning my system with one against another. Does the Adderall deal with depression too, if so then i would come off the Cymbalta..
I have been on quite alot of meds lately and am feeling a little scared that I may be mixing them?

I plugged your medications into the interaction checker and the following link will show you what it said:
That being shared, if the doctor(s) is prescribing all of these and knows everything you are taking they have most likley adjusted the dosages to avoid any ill effect. You are not poisoning your body, but you do need to be aware of any side effects such as would occur with serotonin syndrome and central nervous system depression.
As far as adderall helping the depression, it may help some of the symptoms of depression, but will not treat it as an antidepressant will. The adderall may help symptoms like inability to concentrate and excessive sleeping brought on by the depression but it will not treat the underlying physiological causes of depression.
Your pharmacist should have a file on you and your meds. He/she will let you know if one med doesn't interacts well with another. Just ask. Also a good idea to always get your prescription filled at the same place because they can keep track of when and what you are taking. Hope this helps!
