Pills, Pills, Pills...
« on: March 19, 2012, 10:43:32 AM »
Hey gang!

So I've been wondering if it's ok to take a ton of pills together all at the same time?

I take Effexor 75mg, Bractrim 80mg, Isoniazid 300mg, Prescription Vitamin B 50mg, a multivitamin, fish oil, PB8 and Silver Biotics (both probiotics).

I have been taking the Isoniazid separate and first thing in the morning since the instructions say to take it 1 hour before or 2 hours after eating.

I've only been taking the Isoniazid and Bactrim for about 7 days and haven't noticed anything abnormal or felt bad. Just wondering if any of you have any experience or suggestions about this?

I take all of my meds at the same time. i have for years.

Unless there is a warning not to do this, I don't know that it will cause harm.

I would probably ask my doctor next time I saw him/her, just to make sure.

I would think if there was a special need for a medication to be taken separately it would be plainly marked so on the bottle at the pharmacy. You know, kind of like "Take with Water" or "Take with Food"...
