Customer Question
I take Paxil cr...

I take Paxil cr 37.5; lithium 600 mg; and trazodone 50 mg daily. In looking at recent drug interactions, I question the safety of these drugs together.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Sensitivity to epinephrine based drugs and caffeine.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Mitral valve prolapse. Recent hospital observation for PACs-multiple x 3 day, and HR at rest 46-52 bpm.

Hello,
Yes if you check online or drug references, it will show all three have drug drug Interactions. But in reality, all three are used very commonly. Especially Paxil and Trazodone. I wouldn't worry about those interactions as they are just precautions as they have them with numerous other medications.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
