I recently discovered I take three medications that metabolize by the same liver enzyme, paroxetine 20mg, wellbutrin300mg, risperidone .75mg for 3 years. I've had no side effects or problems with any of my medications, 48 year old male. Was this not a good idea for my DR to prescribe me these medications together? I've had a couple of pharmacist tell me not to worry that it is rare for drugs to alter the metabolism of other drugs, and is patient dependent with only being a possibility for some. I can't get in to see my PDoc for a couple of months, for i use the VA. I would appreciate a Dr's opinion on this, because i am a little worried.
Thank you
