  • Be advised some states are Prosecuting drivers on these medications even though I've taken them for 8 year+ I don't get messed up on these drugs nor do I abuse them. I got a DUI because I had kept prescription papers in me vehicle to prove I'm on them.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Suffers from hypertension on occasion. Issues of high cholesterol sometimes. Stopped cholesterol tabs (crestor) since treatment for depression started, about a month ago. Effexor has only been taken for a week to date. Previously, other depression meds have been tried, such as amitriptyline,paraoxytin, etc. Took 1 dose of milk of magnesia for extreme constipation last week.Is it okay to take cholesterol meds (crestor) (taken night time), along with effexor (taken morning) and alprazolam (taken night)? Not taking hypertension meds at the moment, as the pressure is okay.
