I am taking insomina prescriptions for the past of one year. They are as follows: 1/2 each of Stilnox 10mg,Seroquel 25mg, Lexapro 10mg and XanaX 0.5mg nightly. My hematocrit and hemoglobin level go down to 36.6 vol% and 12.6 gm/dl respectively below the normal level 40.00 and 14.00. Kindly advise me are the medication the causes or the sideeffect? I had a T.I.A (Blood Clot) last year and worry for another blood clot or low blood level for the above causes. Regards

It is likely not medications but we suggest you check with your doctor and pharmacist. Please try to limit all questions to Parkinson and not TIA/Stroke. Thanks and have a great night._________________Michael S. Okun, M.D.
