  • Can i take my lisinopril 10mg with my suboxone 8mg
    I fell from a two story roof in 2010 and messed my back and knees up pretty bad. I was fine at first but after my dr at the time lost both of his feet to diabetes I was stuck looking for a new dr, I thought I found one but instead I found satan in a dr's smock. He took me from 90 oxycodone 15mg tablets per month to 240 oxycodone 30mg, 120 oxycodone 15mg, 120 opana 40mg and 120 xanax 2mg per month. So needless to say I became opiode dependent and it took me a little while before I could admit I had a problem, which incidently leads to my question. I'm taking suboxone 8mg twice daily for my addiction and taking one licinopril 10mg daily, my question is does licinopril interact with suboxone badly, or is it fine to take with it.

  • What if any are the interaction side effects of celexa, amytriptyline, and dilantin?
    I am being treated by a LPN due to financial hardship, and I have heard that the office is notorious for giving drugs that have caused negative effects in patients. The Dilantin is for my seizures, the celexa is for my depression and the Elavil is for my sleeplessness. I just want to know of any negative side effects that may happen with the interaction of these medications. I have already been on Celexa and Dilantin, so they are working fine... Just the new introduction of the amitryptoline. Please help if you can.



    Thanks in advance.
