Discussions that mention prozac

Addiction & Recovery board


I made a list from the home detox plan on the top of this thread and want to run to the store but I'm soooo confused!

It says to NOT take certain things if you are already on cetain meds...
This confuses me.

St. John's Wort, NOT if on SSRI's.... I'm on Wellbutrin and Prozac are they SSRI's?

Nyquil & Benedryl, NOT if w/d'ing from Benzo's... I'm coming off Percocet BUT do take xanax and klonopin, should I NOT take Benedryl and Nyquil are they considered Benzo's, BUT I'm NOT coming off those two meds?

Tylenol PM, This is okay to take with the acetominophen in it?

Robitussin DXM, Tagamet?

I don't like Hershey's dark chocoloate but I LIKe PEANUT CHEWS! They are dark chocolate! Does it have to be Hershey's bar?

HELP!
I wanna run to the store!
Hugs!

Hi, I began detox last night from hydrocodone. I also take Xanax...... but I took Benedryl anyway because I am not detoxing from Xanax. I did take them about an hour apart from eachother and to my surprise slept good. I had no problems with the Xanax and Benedryl combo. I hope this helps you! and good luck!
Hi MF,

I do not think wellbutrin or Prozac are ssri's....it means they are serontonin reuptake inhibitors....st. john's wart increases serontonin that's why you're not supposed to take it with those...the pharmacist can telll you for sure...usually though, if you are on a ssri, you know it, cuz there are so many things you have to be aware of not taking with it...

I don't really know why it says no benedryl, nyquil when w/d from benzos..however, although they're not benzo's, both of these drugs affect the same area of the brain as benzo's, so if you were taking them while w/d from the benzos, you'd be defeating the purpose of your detox and just replacing the benzo effect w/ those OT drugs.....I Would think though, that you shouldn't take those things WITH the benzo's....alot of downers at one time..(especially klonopin and xanies).

The acetemenophen in T-Pm shouldn't be a prob, but the "night time" drug in T-Pm is another sleeper "downer"...don't want to take too many of those together

Not sure about Tagamet...isn't that heartburn med? The Robitussin again has sleepy medicine in it...

With me, any kind of chocolate rocks when detoxing...I get all into Kisses...I don't like dark choc either....I think they say that cuz it has the most whatever that stuff in chocolate that eases the pain...That stuff that stimulates the chemical in your brain...Oreo cookies are rockin too for hydro w/d's...

Percocet has acetomenophen in it doesn't it? Any time your w/d from something that has acetemi.... in it like vicodin, lortab, percocet (i think), it's good to take 2-500mg tylenol or generic acetimenophen about every 4-6hrs because you are also w/ding from the acetim.... as well.....

Hope this helps and I caught you b-4 you went to the store! I'll be thinking and praying for ya! :bouncing:
prozac is an ssri - dont take the st johns wort.
