different doc with each one which made me q?? diltiazem, cilazapril, citalopram, levothyroxine?? wht could b the side effects... is this safe??
The question is do the drs all know what she is on? Diltiazem and cilazopril are both for bp. While its normal to take 2 of them if different drs ordered them I'd wonder. Otherwise it's not bad. The best thing she can do is get all her prescriptions at the same pharmacy. The pharmacist would catch problems.
Go onto this site. drugs.com and into drug interactions. list all the drugs. very informative and useful site. I put all my meds in and get the interactions between all of them. When I had not been feeling well I used it and it was one of my meds interacting with the other. Ran it by one of my docs and did get it changed.
Hi, X3! The combination really doesn't see all that concerning, but obviously only a doctor can make that call.
kaismama made the comment about her pharmacy and she probably does get them at the same one, I would think.
The two cardiac drugs might be concerning if prescribed by different doctors. You're in Canada or Europe ~ almost all pharmacy management software is now equipped with interaction alerts and the pharmacist would certainly question it.
This sort of thing is difficult to approach, but you could easily work a question into normal conversation, *Hey, what pharmacy do you use?*, or *Can you get all your scripts filled at the same place?*
Best wishes, WCV
