Mixing drugs in gelatin capsules


Recommended Posts

Quick question. I'm putting my Effexor XR beads in gelatin capsules because for some reason my body has a hard time digesting anything. My question is, I noticed with some meds, you can't take them with others - such as iron or calcium. How can I find out which of my meds to take with what? Can I put some in the same capsule? Where is that smart chemist who always helps me?

Began tapering on 9/22/16 from 150mg EffexorXR

Freedom on 05/10/17
I'm finding life again after YEARS of meds that made me out of it and gaming addiction that took me from real life.

Remember, slow and steady wins the race!

If you go to drugs.com and list all your drugs in the interactions checker it will tell you which you cant take together. Not sure about putting them all in one capsule, I think I would get confused, it doesnt take much to confuse me!  :blink:

Lesson learned, slow down taper at lower doses. Taper no more than 10% of CURRENT dose if possible
