Do I have to scale up and down my Cytomel dosage for therapeutic reasons? Or do I just take my prescribed 25mcg a day? If no scaling up and down is necessary and I only take the 25mcg a day, do I have to break up the 25mcg dose a day?
I was prescribed .5 Mg of lorazepam. I took 9 pills randomly over 6 weeks. Would I suffer any withdrawal From stopping at that point? I have never taken any medications for anxiety before so I wasn't sure.
Will taking 25mcg of cytomel interact with multi-vitamins, 40mg zocor,20mg celexa, 25mg hydrochlorthiazide. These all will be taken once a day. My doctor is recommending 25mcg of cytomel a day along with my other meds.

Q: I currently take Cymbalta for depression. The side effects that I have are when I miss a dose I get dizzy and nauseated when I am driving. My Psychologist has said that I can stop taking it. My question is what is the best way to get off of Cymbalta? If I go cold turkey how long would it take to not have the side effect above? I will be having surgery soon and will have 5 days where I will be at home and mostly in bed relaxing. Would this be a good time to go cold turkey?

As we are in line and the four people hand in their scripts what is the legal way to fill them if there is only enough for two people to fill the script completely and the other two are given partials till more medication is avaliabale. Does it go by the order they were turned in or does it go by some other way of distributing as to which two don't have to come back when they get more in. I'm curious to this answer please respond back with any help. Thank you
