Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can i use a lidocaine patch for back pain if i am taking prograf for anti-rejection post lung transplant?
    Transplant was 6 years ago.
    Has suffered from PTLD on several occasions before.
    Recently hospitalized for Periodic Fever Syndrome.
    Received Interleukin 6 blocker last week and fevers have resolved, but back pain is still present
  • Side effects of cimetidine(tagamet)? should i worry?
    Hello, I'm 17 years old, I have taken Tri-nessa(Birth control) since January of last year(2014) with no side effects.
    I've been having an Acid Reflux problem for a few years(Since I got my Gallbladder removed in 2011). It got really bad by the end of last year (2014) and I've been having multiple problems since Urgent Care diagnosed me with Gastritis. I then assumed I had heart problems due to a lot of issues/deaths with other people and their hearts. Got an EKG, it came out fine. Now, for Gastritis, they put me on Protonix, I was taking it up until this past Wednesday when my Doctor put me on Cimetidine(Tagamet), she also gave me info to go see a GI doctor. Thursday afternoon (Around 1:50-2:50)I had gotten really dizzy like my blood sugar dropped immensely. Ate some candy in hopes to make it better, didn't help (My family has a history of Diabetes). I begged my school to rush me to the ER, but they didn't see anything physically wrong with me, therefore, they said no.

    And so, I went home with my friend and relaxed. Since then, I've been having these 'Tension headaches' that start in my left sided neck and travel up into my head(It switches sides sometimes, or just wraps all around and into the back) for about 3 to 5 hours putting a really hard pressure on my head like someone is crushing it under a wheel, sometimes it feels like I'm being jabbed with a small needle in random spots too. I tried taking Ibuprofen to remove some pressure of the headache, but to no avail. Friday, I went into the ER. They did bloodwork, took a urine sample, did a chest x-ray, and did three EKGs on me. They didn't find much else but a teeny hiccup in my EKG - nothing to panic about - they said, but if I want to feel comforted that my heart is fine, I can see a cardiologist (Going to see one tomorrow). Saturday, I started noticing a swelling over my left breast, next to my armpit. It, and my breasts, have little pains that surge through them every now and again. I also noticed that around my throat to my collarbone, on my chest (left & right), over my shoulder and to my back neck has started to burn and ache as well. The aching will send pains down my spine and make doing anything seem annoying. ON TOP of that, I've been having random coughs, sometimes my face has pressure on it, and Sunday morning I couldn't stop sweating in my sleep. I suspect I slept the wrong way on my neck and the nerves are causing the pain in my chest area, or my acid reflux is causing severe heartburn.

    My big question is, should I go back into the ER and have them test my breasts and neck/spine, or should I kick back and relax in knowing it's just a few side effects from my Cimetidine and a little ache in my neck from sleeping wrong that will go away shortly? (I read it can cause tenderness in the breasts, usually for guys, but maybe girls too?)
    My family doesn't have much money, and my father thinks I'm being a hypochondriac, but I know I have a lot to live for so I'm praying it's really just nothing.

  • Pros and cons of vimpat for me
    I take a huge list of drugs unfortunately I have RA, Partial Small intestinal block, diabetes, asthma, allergies. Immune problems. Vimpat has done wonders for the migraines and seizure problems but the side effects are almost as bad. I have visual disturbances but I also have auras so who knows. The worst problems are shaking, memory, (worst is words) and sudden jerks and nerve firings which produce jerks or just loss of muscle control. Some of the random nerve firings can disrupt my whole body but they only last a fraction of a second and are more annoying than anything else. I tried at least one seizure agent from every category of meds nothing worked except Vimpat. I tried the whole range of dosing. Less than 300mg did not work and I only have the side effects above 250mg so apparently for me it has to cause side effects to work. Compared to the time losses, horrible headaches that are nearly continuous for for me they are worth it, I think. Now I am wondering now that I know where those effects are coming from.
  • Nardil side effects and my experience taking it
    I have been on many SSRI AND SNRI medications that quickly became ineffective. Was told by a doctor friend that she had been on an MAOI inhibitor for many years with good results. After going thru a horrible withdrawal detox from the SNRI I had been on and then a period of no med at all I was started on Nardil, as I needed assistance from Pfizer, the many turner in affording the medicine. My friend was on Parnate, a different brand of an MAOI.
    Within days, not weeks I felt the depression lifting. It was the most dramatic and fastest response I had ever had to any antidepressant .
    Then the fainting started, falls with resulting broken ribs, bedridden and alone I lost over25 lbs in two weeks. I was of normal weight for my height. After I was able to function again, I noticed that my legs were very weak. We cut my dosage from 3 pills daily to 2. That seemed to have stopped the faint spells. However I still had/have low blood pressure that I monitor at home. My Systolic BP was usually in the 70's and 80's. One of the lowest was shocking to me. It was 52/27.
    My son is a hospital RN and said they would never discharge a patient with Bp that low.
    He was very worried about me as I live alone. I fainted twice after climbing the 13 stairs to my bedroom. The first fall was very bad as I was unconscious and my ribs were severely injured/fractured completely around the front and back and was in terrific pain. I took to my bed and did not seek medical attn. my last ambulance ride to the hospital a mile from my house cost $1000 and since I have no income or relatives/friends to call for help, I just lay in bed I awful pain that was woes when I tried to get out of bed. Thus I lost 25 lbs of muscle, since I had very little body fat.
    It has been two months since that fall and still have one area of pain in the front left ribs and a swollen spleen. The doctor gave me no additional meds and just said to give my body more time to heal. So once again was changed to 2 pills daily instead of 3. The hypotension and fainting got better. But I am now left with very weak legs and fall easily and frequently. Guess I lost a lot of muscle mass with the weight loss. However after a lifetime of depression, Nardil works wonderfully for that which had been long-standing and severe for so many years. People noticed the change in me shortly after starting the Nardil. But I am stubborn about going off it despite all the side effects because it works so much better than any of the many others I had been put on over the years.
    I am soon going to start doing leg exercises with ankle weights, starting with light weights are first and gradually increasing the weight as I hopefully rebuild my muscles and strength.
    Also my vision has gotten blurry and I feel slightly retarded after the weeks in bed when I was breathing very shallowly due to the broken ribs and my brain was deprived of adequate oxygen.
    Prior to all this I had an IQ of 140. If they tested me now, I know I would be way down from that. Also doing lung/breathing exercises to expand my lungs so I can take in more air with each breath.
    So that is my story of Nardil, hypotension, and depression. I had to really suffer to remain on this med that worked so magically for me after so many failures. It meant that much to me to not be crippled by depression.
