Please explain the difference between ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.
- Ventricular fibrillation, how many were taking catapress or clonidine at the time?
Five years ago I had four v fibs, two at the hospital that were verified with monitors. They gave me 6 Catapress 24 hours before a heart cathater. Before that time I was taking one 0.2 per day. Is there anyone else out there who has gone through the same and how are they?
- Any success in treating symptoms of pmdd with wild yam root
Hi All. A little over a year and a half ago, I was dx with Pre Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)and was prescribed YASMIN (YAZ) to treat the severe mood changes and suicidal thoughts I was getting 2 weeks out of every 4. The YASMIN worked brilliantly for 9 months and all the PMDD symptoms vanished. Great - Not!
Month 10 on YASMIN saw me hospitalised from it with a DVT. I have since tested positive for the blood clotting disorder called Factor V Leiden which means I can no longer take any oestrogen based OCP. So my problem currently is that I have nightmarish PMDD and a Gynae/Shrink and GP all scratching their heads unable to find anything to treat me with. I should mention that I have been on all the SSRI's over the years for GAD so we know these prove ineffective for PMDD.
I came across a vitamin supplement called WILD YAM ROOT that may help PMDD symptoms. Its the psychological torment I want to treat mainly. Bloating, cramping etc I can deal with. The anger, the hysterical bouts of crying, the suicidal thoughts etc I can't deal with and I am very very scared.
I was wondering if anyone else out there suffering from PMDD has had any help by taking WILD YAM as I am at my wit's end with this disorder and would really appreciate replies from any ladies who have found WILD YAM worked for them or didn't work for them or any other drug/vitamin supplement that I could try. I am so scared of ending up in a Psych hospital for half of every month if this is left untreated. I'm sorry for writing so much and thank everyone who took the time to read this and offer any ideas.

- What are the risks of taking lisinopril and hydrochlorthiazide, amlodipine besylate, clonidine hydrocloride (1 answer)
My sister is 27 and was diagnosed with hypertension at the age of 18. I understand that high blood pressure is a chronic disease, but just so recently the symptoms have gotten worse and the blood pressure increased. She is currently taking Lisinopril and Hydrochlorthiazide (blood pressure pill and water pill mixed), Amlodipine Besylate (blood pressure pill which also relives angina), Clonidine Hydrochloride (blood pressure pill), and Fluoxetine(anxiety pill). Since she has been given all of this medicine, she's been getting worse instead of getting better. I need answers on what could help.

All these symptoms happened after I stopped the Suboxone. was still taking clonidine and clonazepam to help. occasionally I will get a cluster of clonic tonic movements with loss of memory and consciousness.

im the 34yr old female in this study. Last year I was given these meds to stop a narcotic wean I was already almost done with. So wasnt even needed. I was given the Narcan shot and NOTHING happened to me. They said I was 1 in a million to not have any symptoms. (cause I had no drugs in me...duh) So I took the subs and the Klonopin together for 3 wks but had been on the klonopin for over 6mths already. I started having problems at the end of the wean and lots of head pain. I had a huge convulsion and passed out. For 3 hrs couldnt move my body or tell anyone I could hear. I was paralyzed. When I started to recover my head hurt so bad. Went to ER but all was fine, they said. 2 days later I ended up with severe tummy cramps and black stools that turned bright red and foul smelling and passed out in the ER. Lost 10units of blood and almost died that day. Since recovering ive been on dilaudid and withdrawn from that by myself. But I get these cluster seizure like activity that last 2-3 hrs when Im given certain meds or any artificial sweetners. Currently Im stopping low dose norco from a recent surgery and still suffer from the syncope/convulsion type issue. I would never suggest anyone mix these drugs. Very dangerous. (Dr. had to do a proceedure on me and to try and sedate me he used 18 fentanyl and 20 vials of verced....I was still wide awake and feeling everything. When he realized how much the nurse pushed and that just 30 min earlier I had 8 fentanyl and 5 verced he said no more or I would be in the morge.) When I saw him later he looked at me and said all that medicine would have killed 99% of the world if he gave them that much. So it can be deadly if you need a surgery or a procedure as anesthesia doesnt work the same. Narcan gets stuck in your brain and takes forever to go away. This is just my cautionary tale. Hope this never happens to another person.

Anyone taking suboxone regularly should know that it is very dangerous to mix with benzodiazepines, these are normally Valium, Xanax, Ativan, klonopin. I've done a ton of research on the topic because I take suboxone. Please use caution when mixing these types of meds. To the person who said they had a convulsion, my research tells me that is directly tied to the mix of meds you are taking. I suggest you don't continue that mix because it may kill you!
