  • I am prescribed methadone and lamictal. at my peak, i nod a little. is this normal? (2 answers)
    I began taking Methadone during my pregnancy per Drs order. I was only on Vicodine, Ambien, Seraquil and Lexapro and stopped immediately after the positive pregnancy result. I have never experienced the nod before. I hate it. Am I the only 1? I'm only on 55mgs of Methadone and 25mgs of Lamictal.
  • Phentermine topamax and depo provera
    I'm am wondering if th phentermine, the topamax (25 mg x2 a day ) will interfer will the depo provera?
  • Is it safe to take methadone(52mg daily), metoprolol extended release(75mg daily) & xanax(1mg twice daily) (2 answers)
    I'm just wanting to know if its safe to take all 3. I've been on methadone for 7yrs and about a yr ago i started tapering and started at 130mg, but am now at 52mg. I've been on the Metoprolol(extended release) for about a yr now taking 50mg in AM, and 25mg in PM. I just started taking the Xanax about 3wks ago .5mg twice daily/as needed. Stopped taking birth control 3months ago, so wondering if some side effects are because of the birth control, and not the other meds. Thanks!
  • Muscle spasms and other things when taking lexapro
    I am a 29 years old female. I went to see a psychiatrist because I felt depressed. I had never been to a psychiatrist before nor taken drugs for depression. He made me a prescription for Lexapro. I started taking 7,5mg a day as prescribed. This is only my fourth day and I have experienced mild hallucinations (I look at the walls in my room and they seem to be moving), tremors, muscle spasms and had difficulty breathing. I have been reading about seratonin syndrome and now I'm worried this is happening to me. I just wonder if it is possible that I have been affected while taking such a small dosage for so little time.
  • Can bell's palsy occur after a pulmonary embolsim
    I had a pulmonary embolism in March this year. Clots were found in both lungs. Since then I have had extreme pain on my left side under my breast which radiates downwards on breathing deeply.I was told this would go away with time but hasn't. I get pain in my back directly behind the area in the front. Occasionally I get a stabbing pain in my heart area (also on the left). I suffer from migrains on neck stiffness on my left side but find the clarity of my sight diminished in my right eye. I was diagnosed with PTSD after I had the embolism and put onto antidepressants. I also find my coordination has diminished substanstially. My question is, could the embolism have caused a type of Bell's Palsy?

  • Effexor near death experience
    In 1999 I was prescribed 75mg time release Effexor. I took one pill and 4 hours later I became dizzy and it felt like a cold patch in the middle of my head. I ckecked my eyes as i started seeing too much light, my puples were dilated, all black. I managed to get up stairs and asked my mom to get me to hospital. I passed out, and as crazy as it sounds I had a vision of my nana. I knew I was gone.she told me to wake up. I wasn't breathing. I could hear my mom talking on the phone to 911saying I had no pulse. (She is an RN) the ambulance came and they couldn't find my blood pressure. I couldn't see very well. The ER doctors said to continue taking the meds and sent my home. I stopped taking the Effexor. I had the side effects for many months. I get aura migraines now and have extreme sensitivity to other drugs.
  • Librium 25mg and wellbutrin 300mg for >1 month
    I've been taking librium twice daily, morning and night, for about 3 months now along with wellbutrin XL in the morning. I've basically had the mood of "I don't care" and a great boost in confidence.
  • Xanax almost killed me!
    I took xanax and went to bed, I woke up in hospital. I had been there a long time in a coma. They were about to take me off life support! All because of xanax.
  • Escitalopram /narcolepsy
    Began taking escitalopram one month ago. Having narcoleptic type sleep incidents as well as unwanted suicidal thoughts. Legs and arms also go out. Sleeping up to thirteen or more hours per day.
  • 3 strong drugs together against neuropathic pain
    Neuropathic pain debuted when I was 24, now I'm 50. Received diagnosed with Ehler-Danlos syndrome (EDS), joint hypermobility type, when I was 35 years old. So it can take some time to get a diagnose. And as EDS-patient I do not belong to any clinic. Orthopedics says that EDS is not orthopedic, rheumatology says that EDS is not an autoimmune disease, GPs say that EDS is too difficult, and so on. Sooner or later we all end up at Psychiatry, even if we are not depressed.

    The first kind of pain I got when I was 24 came from low back, but I experienced as pelvic pain and leg pain. It was clearly a neuropathic pain, but it took years to find out. Later it was treated by a pain clinic with cortisone around the genitofemoral nerves (both sides). Since this treatment didn't result in lasting freedom from pain, the pain clinic started to give me RF (radio frequency) treatment. This made the pain disappeared after one year, and I was 80% free from it between 2002 and 2014, 12 years. The pain doctors said pain could return after 10 years.

    The other kind of neuropathic pain started 2003 with intense stomach pain. During 6 months I could hardly eat nothing due to nausea and vomiting. After this 6 months, stomach pain changed to almost unbearable pain in upper back.
    What happened 2003, and what all the doctors missed, was that the right lowest ribs slid up over the sternum. This rib dislocation is till there today, but now with a lot of cartilage formed around the rib where it is stuck in the lower end of the sternum. The dislocation is clearly visible on X-ray. This has greatly affected the thoracic spine. I have a scoliosis which I had not before 2003. And I still have severe pain in the thoracic spine.

    It was initially treated with morphine daily, and later with Durogesic (fentanyl), but this didn't help much. 2005 I was hospitalized because I had too much pain to take care of myself and my hygiene. After some months the doctors started to give me clonazepam because the muscles along the spine was in a chronic seizures. Clonazepam helped, but I could still have a lot of pain in two vertebrae in the thoracic spine. It felt as if someone drilled into the vertebrae without anesthesia. After a few months, doctors also prescribed me methadone. Then the pain disappeared almost completely. Since 2006, I have eaten clonazepam and methadone every day, and I need to sleep in an armchair to not get more pain because of moving during sleep.

    There are side effects. After 1,5 years with clonazepam and methadone I started to have panic attacks. Or rather one long panic attack which didn't stop before I got treatment with amitryptilin and pregabalin (Lyrica). These 2 medicines stopped the panic disorder completely after some hours, and the panic was then gone. Then I got side effects of these 2 medicines, amitryptilin & Lyrica, too. I gained a lot of weight (from 83 to 148 kg) and got much water (edema) in both my legs under the knees and in both feet. The feet could swallow to the double size. 2012 I stopped with amitryptilin and started to loose weight again (in Aug 2014 below 80 kg) and get less water in my legs. Today I eat as little medicines I can, but I have to take methadone, clonazepam and Lyrica every day, twice. If I try to take away one of these 3 medicines, I got pain problems at once. Lyrica is the most painful one to take away. In Sept-Dec 2013 I lowered Lyrica from 300 mg daily, to 150, then to 75 and finally 0 mg. The pain I had was extremely difficult to handle. It didn't help to take more methadone or anything else. I have checked on Internet and found that many people got pain from quitting with Lyrica. Most people start eating it again. So did I. But 2006 and 2007 it was enough to treat the pain with methadone and clonazepam, I got the Lyrica against anxiety not pain. But today I take Lyrica against pain.

    Beside weight gain and leg edema, clonazepam and Lyrica significantly affect the sexual desire. And Lyrica alone makes it almost impossible to ejaculate. All four drugs together (clonazepam, methadone, amitryptiline and Lyrica), make one forget all about sex life. You don't even miss it. When I stopped with amitryptiline and lowered Lyrica (still taking clonazepam and methadone), I could suddenly easily get erections again, feel desire, but not getting orgasms. This is quite difficult to deal with.

    The pain pattern is greatly affected, by pain and by the medicines. So is the mood. I get something which feels like heavy depression, especially if I take the medicines late that day. I should take a medicine like methadone 3 times a day, because the effects of the tablet lasts around 8 hours. But I take them every 12 hours, to have a low consumption in case doctors prescribe them too late (which happens, and then it's good to have a spouse going to the pharmacy buying them for you, because you have too much pain to go yourself).

    Since methadone is also used for treating heroine addicts, medical staff treat you with disrespect when they see that it says "methadone" in your health record. I need to show a certificate that says that I deal with chronic neuropathic pain, that I never have had problems with drug addiction, to get normal respect.

    I wanted to share this because I think I am alone in the world with these medicines in combination against neuropathic pain caused by hypermobile joints, joint dislocation and muscle spasms. After trying almost everything else, including surgery cutting nerves, methadone, clonazepam and Lyrica seems to be the only way to kill my pain. But it's a life where you always is questioned, because of the use of methadone. I can guarantee that everybody in the world should accept these medicines if they had experienced the unbearable pain I had in upper back before they started to give me clonazepam and methadone.
