Anybody have these done? My doc wants them stat. I luckily found an open MRI place that my insurance covers but the quality of the images according to someone on YELP is not great. Dang. Hard to reach my doc but I'll try him Monday to see what he says.

I'm too jittery to do the normal MRI and I'm on LDN which I think precludes me from taking a xanex or similar.

Would appreciate any suggestions anyone has on this and also whether you've taken Namenda and Bactrim together. My pharmacist said that there is a moderate interaction between them so I should take them at least 1-2 hours apart! My doc never mentioned it.

Thanks.

I have taken xanex and LDN together... Why do you think you can't?

It is only opiate agonist (pain reliever or something like tha) that can cause a problem.

I feel for you. I HATE MRIs too. It helps to close your eyes and NOT open them ever once you are in.

Foxy loxy,
Thanks for your response.

I read somewhere that xanex and LDN are probably not good to take at the same time. I don't have any science to back it up.

Though I've also read that LDN and Bactrim aren't supposed to be taken together either - after my pharmacist alerted me. But my doc still thinks the benefits outweigh any risks.
