Question: Drug Interactions
|Swinger - Thu Aug 11, 2005 2:28 pm||
I am a bipolar patient who has just had all of my medications switched. I am now prescribed:
Ritalin SR 20mg
Are there any bad interactions between these drugs I should be concerned about?

Wellbutrin SR is an antidepressant. Ritalin SR is a medication that may be used to augment the action of antidepressants and/or to counteract fatigue. Lamictal is a mood stabilizer. There are no specific interactions between these medications. The most common interactions that I have seen involving these medications are with alcohol. You should avoid drinking alcohol while taking these medications. Thanks for your question!
