Do you take several different medications?

I was prescribed 3 different medications today. Doxycycline, Cyclobenziprine and Levothyroxine. I was wondering if you think it would be safe to take them at the same time, or space each one out at different times of the day? And if I should space them out, how many hours in between? The antibiotic is twice a day, levothyroxine is once a day, and cyclobenziprine is 3 times a day.

  • Your Doctor did not tell you how to take them? Go to webmd and look them up.

  • Nah she didn't really even say anything about em and I didn't think to ask because they drew blood to check to see if I have Lupus yesterday so that kinda threw my mind off

  • Ask your pharmacist.They should have told you if there was a problem with taking them at the same time.
