new meds

Prednisone
Lyrica
Carbamazepine

I'm already on Gabapentin and Tegretol. How do start a new med without weaning off the other???

I'm afraid of taking to many of these lethal drugs at once!

Talk to your pharmacist. They should direct you on what the best approach is for you.

Your doctor or pharmacist can best help with that. Good luck and take care. Hugs love & prayers! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒธ

I would would speak to your doctor or pharmacist as they
can tell you if your meds have any interactions with each other.
Did your doctor say anything about weaning you off the meds your on before taking the new ones? Or do they want you to take them all together?
Your pharmacist can tell you if your meds have any interactions with each other and if they're all safe enough to take together.

I hope they find meds that will help you very soon. Sending you {{{BIG GENTLE LOVING HUGS}}}
