  • Yep..I take Wellbutrin twice a day and Lexapro once a day for depression and anxiety. I also take an Ambien CR to sleep at night. And, I take a Vitamin D supplement twice a week because my vitamin D is low.

  • I take a thyroid pill for my underactive thyroid and Celexa for depression. Not together because then they don't work well.

  • Yes, I take 400 mg of Prometrium every night. Once a week I have to have a progesterone hormone shot. Both combined are to sustain the pregnancy I have not since I have had a lot of bleeding and contractions early in my pregnancy. I have to take both up until I'm 36 weeks. I also take my prenatal vitamin daily.

  • Not any more! I used to be on Toprol for my blood pressure but I weaned myself off and have felt much better since and haven't had issues with my bp either!
