I'm on effexor,.wellbutrin, and abilify, I also have periodic scripts of hydrocodone, for chronic back pain. (same doctor) I'm just a little worrIed about taKing this all together. does anyone else have this regimen?
Hi, i'm in the same situation, taking a combination of (7) medications, and when i research the combinations i am taking i am warned about major interaction risks. Apparently i should be a ticking time bomb, but i function perfectly fine. I have been prescribed medications from different sources: GP, psychiatrist, psych' nurse. But my doctor knows all that i am taking and monitors it. I did a check for you and i will add the link... if you are experiencing any of the side effects mentioned then please see you doctor asap. If you feel that you are doing OK though, discuss the potential side effects at your next appointment, and that you are concerned about the medications you are taking.
I am definitely not an expert... but Abilify, Wellbutrin, and Effexor sounds a bit excessive to me. I myself do not like Abilify because it has a tendency to run my glucose higher. And weight gain came with it ,uuuggghhh! And even if you are not diabetic, it can increase you glucose. I guess I am skeptical of it, because I have 2 friends as well that took this medication. They just kept increasing the dosage, and so did their weight. I do take Lortab for pain and now I am on Prozac. Good luck, I hope this helped.
yes I have been taking hydrocodone for at least 10 years for four bulging disk and arthritis along with paxil and now with celexa along with other meds all by the same doctor and he monitors it.
Wellbutrin, Soma, Clonazapam for nerves and anxiety, of course also Ibuprofen, for my chronic condition that flares often now though I have had epidural injections 4/times this past year. I am more stable. The injections though not my first choice, in this case were my only choice.
I think the world of Wellbutrin, it is a good, safe drug compared to many and has been on the market, first created by Burroughs Wellcome Co. before Glaxo bought them and many other companies in pharmaceuticals out.
Saying that, every one is different. PLEASE consider interactions, also, are different for everyone, and discuss w/ your M. D. Good luck, and better health!
