I am on 300 mg Wellbutrin, 900 lithium, 100 mg Zoloft, .5 xanax 3 times a day for a new recent episode of panic, anxiety and sometimes take 200-300 mg quetiapine if I can't sleep due to feeling psychosis come on. Is this a lot of medicine?
Many times it takes a mix of drugs to help. If you feel like you are on too much you can take the list to your pharmacist and he will talk to you about it. If you are getting all your meds at the same pharmacy they will usually say something if you're on many meds, but there is no reason you can't ask. The pharmacist isn't just someone who fills pill bottles. They are educated professionals who are taught about these things.
Hi, the dosages sound ok, except i can't be sure about the Xanax as you don't mention what strength the tablets are... I also take a combination of medications, 5 different meds (+ asthma medication) and some doctors i have seen are surprised at all that i take, but the combination works for me, and has obviously been prescribed to treat my various symptoms. For some of us this is just what we need. Do as Kaismama said if you are really concerned, have a chat with your pharmacist.
