I just started to increase my dose of zoloft from 150mg to 200mg as advised by a doctor when I underwent treatment for alcohol detox.i am also taking dexamphetamine as well but prescribed by a psychiatrist which the doctor who increased my zoloft doesn't know about.i often take more than what was prescribed for me of dexamphetamine so I am concerned what the possible effects from this combination more so im scared of a fatal reaction. I came to this site because I did not want to go to my doctor and admit to taking the dexamphetamine whilst undergoing treatment in detox unit 5 days for alcohol withdrawal (was drinking heavily 10 standard drinks a night evey night for the past 2 years ) I was also prescribed campral and have started on that as well. All the drug interactions are causing me much concern please help. As yet I don't feel like I have any adverse symptoms but I only just started on the 200 mg for 3 days now

- Niacin induced thrombocytopena
On peritoneal dialysis, 40mg Lipitor and 3000mg Niaspan. Platelets decreased to 12 and residual renal function fell off a cliff. Examination of patient's records for 10+ years showed long term platelet decline. Niaspan discontinued, platelets recovered to 120-200 (varies depending on sample) and some residual renal function returned.
- Gemfibrozil, depression and sleepiness
I would like to hear from anyone who has had these symptoms, and how they dealt with it, by either lowering dosage or quitting the med, or other. Also would like to hear from others who continued to drink moderately and if this drug lowered their triglycerides...or those who were no longer able to stomach alcohol and had to quit....or had other reactions to gemfibrozil and alcohol use. My depression is becoming severe. I have life changes as well, so I can't figure if it is the drug. Had to take it as my triglycerides were over 900. They are now down to 250. Thanks
