Triazolam and Bupropion Sustained Release

ProfJameson Drug Combinations Leave a comment  

The role of the pharmacist is being touted as the key to success for the this new combination designed for the depressed insomniac. The triazolam portion will be immediate release for a rapid onset hypnotic effect to offset the stimulating effect of the bupropion. Patient counseling to reinforce the impoortance of taking this combo at bedtime is predicted to be crucial to prevent mass traffic accidents during the mornig rush hour in Los Angeles (where use is predicted to be particularly high). The brand name may turn out to be Ogdnapots® which is Stop and Go spelled backwards.

Nitroglycerin and a Polyphasic Oral Contraceptive

Not all of our combinations are aimed at offsetting adverse effects. This one will be sublingual. In tribute to the dual mechanizm resuting in increased contraceptive efficacy (estimated at 99.8%), it will be called Bicyclin®

Olanzapine and Phentermine

ProfJameson Drug Combinations 3 Comments

One of the most creative combinations we have seen, this product combines the notorious weight gain inducing antipsychotic Zyprexa with a discontinued weight loss drug. Patients will still hear the voices, but now they will tell them to stop eating. The brand name? Zyloss&#0174

Verapamil and Senna

ProfJameson Drug Combinations 2 Comments

The stimulant laxative Senna should overcome the legendary constipating effects of verapamil. This combination is a contender for the “most clever brand name” award. It will be called GoLo®

Phenytoin and Meperedine

This combination of two old and nearly extinct drugs will be marketed for pain in patients with renal impairmment. We don’t know what the Brand name will be, but the tagline will be “Don’t be seized by the pain”

Disclaimer: In case you stumbled on this post without reading the intro, these drug combos are not real. If you didn’t get this joke, it is about normeperedine accumulating in renal failure and causing seizures and phenytoin being an anticonvulsant. Of course explaining this strips every shred of humor from this post 🙂


escitalopram and sildenafil

ProfJameson Drug Combinations 5 Comments

The claims of Lexapro having no significant sexual side effects may come into question if a new combo with sildenafil is relased. It may simply be called Bonus ®

Disclaimers: Please don’t send comments about the fact that SSRI’s cause delayed ejaculation and anorgasmia rather than impotence. We know that, this combo is still funny, even though not techically correct. In case you stumbled on this post without reading the intro, these drug combos are not real.


Lithium and Carbamazepine

This combination for mood stabilization may actually be called Offset® due to the two drugs opposite effects on Antidiuretic Hormone.

Pioglitazone and Digoxin

ProfJameson Drug Combinations Leave a comment  

Dismayed by the lost market share due to pioglitazone’s propensity to worsen heart failure, the manufacturers will be producing a new combo with digoxin called Piopump

Valproate and Minoxidil

ProfJameson Drug Combinations 1

The alopecia effects of valproate seems to have become vexing enough to prompt a combination product with minoxidil. It will be marketed for headache prophylaxis and it will be called Nomigaine. Read that again: Nomigaine.

Spironolactone plus Tamoxifen

ProfJameson Drug Combinations 2 Comments

This combination of course is using the anti-estrogen properties of tamoxifen to offset the gynecomastia caused by spironolactone. It will probably be called Noestrone (Redux is already taken)
