What @Altostrata is asking for is your notes now, so we know what is going on before you even think about tapering. 

Yes ma'am, I've posted my most recent notes. And I am waiting for pharmacy to get the liquid form in for when yall advice me to start taper.

Thanks, @Chlo Do you see the interaction between omeprazole and atorvastatin and escitalopram? You need to take them further apart, but you also need to avoid taking any of them with the other drugs. Suggest you move omeprazole to dinnertime.

 

Please run this interactions report again with Pepcid AC added. Why do you take both omeprazole and Pepcid AC?

Yes ma'am, I have been taking the Omeprazol and hour later from morning dose of Lexapro. I can move it 2 hours later. (I take Omeprazol 40mg for my acid reflux, I have to take that before I eat or drink anything). The Pepcid AC I take before bed for acid reflux, but because I haven't been eating much in the evenings due to no appetite, I am just going to stop taking that. I would start taking the Omeprazol in the evenings, but it's the only thing that helps me in the morning to not have reflux throught the day. The Atorvastatin I can take anytime in the day.

How long have you been taking Pepcid AC every day?

 

I am concerned about how closely you're taking omeprazole, atorvastatin and escitalopram. This may be causing that pain you feel in your back (maybe liver or kidneys) at 1 p.m.

 

Your doctor should have been alert to this:

Quote

Talk to your doctor before using atorvastatin together with omeprazole. Combining these medications may increase the blood levels and effects of atorvastatin. This can increase the risk of side effects such as liver damage and a rare but serious condition called rhabdomyolysis....

 

This is going to be tricky because you're taking so many drugs. Suggest you move atorvastatin to 5 p.m.

 

You should be taking omeprazole earlier and Lexapro later, but the activating effect of Lexapro might interfere with your sleep. Moving these 2 drugs may have to wait until after you reduce Lexapro.

This is not medical advice. Discuss any decisions about your medical care with a knowledgeable medical practitioner.

I have been taking pepcid ac for 2 years. And yeah you would think my doctor or pharmacist would have known the effects of taking the Lexapro, Atorvastatin, and Omeprazol together, but they just prescribe & fill, they don't care. Joining your site is the first time I've heard of the medicine checker. I'm so thankful for you! I'll take Omeprazol when I wake in morning, Lexapro 2 hours later, my supplements at 1:00pm, and Atorvastatin at 5:00pm.  Will the 2 hour delay of Lexapro cause a bad side effect?

Please keep the Lexapro at 9 a.m. You can move the others as you've said.

 

Since you've been taking Pepcid such a long time, suggest you reduce it by 25% every few days to avoid acid rebound. See Tips for tapering off stomach acid blockers or PPIs...

 

Please keep notes throughout this process. There may be a few small bumps, your system will still need to adjust. But I hope the back pain diminishes.

Alrighty, will do! I have a history of chronic back pain and have had several neurotomys, so I'm thinking that is what's going on and the nerves are firing back up again. Is it ok that I'm taking Aleve for the inflammation?

Also having the phantom smells again.

Do you take Aleve every day? This can hurt your gut. Please talk to your doctor.

 

What do you mean by phantom smells?

Phantosmia, I keep smelling something like a burning ash tray. I only took Aleve yesterday when back pain started and today.

I am sooo confused!! I've got liquid form escitalopram, and your instructions for tapering is in milligrams,  my oral syringe is in milliliter. So if I'm supposed to take 4.75mg then how much am I to take in liquid form?

I feel so stupid!!

I see there is 1000ml per 1mg. So that's easy, thank you, my friend! I will take 4.75 ml my first drop.

No, you're not taking the drug by weight, you're taking it by dosage (mgai).

 

How many milligrams of escitalopram are there in 1 milliliter of your liquid? Please look at the label. If necessary, post photos of the label.

That would be 1mg/1mL. For a 4.5mg Lexapro dose, you would take 4.5 milliliters (mL) of the liquid.

You probably can get a 5mL syringe from your local pharmacist, and smaller ones from veterinarians.
