    i'm sure someone with more knowledge than me on meds can give you some input. just wanted to reply to bump you up because sometimes the holiday weekends are slow. do you take everyone daily. i noticed the ultram (i take) and isn't the vicoden for pain also. do you take the two together.

    this is where you really need to have your doctors know what you are taking, so they don't overlapp medicines that can be potentially dangerous taken together. some pharmacies are really good at keeping up with your drugs and interreactions.

    hope you get some replies soon, welcome to the board.

    warm regards, fibolady

    sometimes the prescription meds are necessary. sometimes it can't be helped. i'm on over $1,000 of meds a month. this is not including my herbs and other natural supplements. try not to worry. i haven't noticed any ill effects from this. cindi

    Hi Everette, that sounds like a lot of drugs for one person.

    I am no pharmacist, but from the looks of it you have everything from a few different pain meds, antidepressent, muscle relaxer, anti anxiety drugs.

    You need to check with your pharmacist and doctor.

    I hope you get some real help soon.

    Please let us know how you are doing.

    Welcome to the board, and hope we get to know you better soon.

    Shalom, Shirl

    both professionally and personally, I deal with meds. each and every day, and you are on too much medication, IMO. Did just one doc prescribe all of these and did he prescribe exactly these dosages or are you adjusting the doses? Don't get me wrong, my friend, I've done the same, but this can have some serious adverse effects. Do you understand what prn means? Does your doc mean for you to take some of these "as needed" or "routinely?" Please, check this out for your sake.
    Be well informed, my friend...
