  • Does doxepin cause abdominal adhesions?
    Have had adhesions and still taking doxepin. Need the doxepin, but worry about more adhesions
  • Can nuvigil (vs adderall) be used simultaneously to help wean off 60mg/day of adderall? (1 answer)
    I have been on Adderall 30mg 2x daily for years!! I've had it lowered to 20mg, I've TRIED to go months without it (when not working) however I feel I've built up a tolerance level to the point that it's not as effective as it once was. My personal life has detoured WAY past anything an ADHD medication can possibly help as far as focusing on NEEDED tasks etc. I end up feeling wrapped up in what I'm doing at the moment that my anxiety increases due to all that I haven't been able to accomplish. I take various medications for various reasons, depression, anxiety, bulimia etc., and for the most part the doses have varied based on circumstances and current need at said time of prescription.. MY FAMILY HAS A HISTORY OF HEART DISEASE, And realizing that I'm already on the highest Adderall dosage scares me (and THEN as I think about it, it makes my heart race!). I've also noticed increased muscle spasms as well as extreme and intense pressure on my jaw (TMJ). MY QUESTION IS: does anyone have any experience LOWERING their Adderall dosage AND adding Nuvigil? The research I've done to date gives me impression that it could help balance out the more extreme effects of Adderall (60mg/day) but that the nuvigil would or could potentially help with the EXTREME exhaustion I feel as Adderall wears off. Some days I just crash, some days I sleep fine and others no matter how hard I tryyyy, I just CAN'T fall asleep, therefore making the next day worse! IDEALLY I'D LIKE TO BE MED FREE, right now I need them, but am hoping maybe I can speak with my doctor to lower Adderall and add Nuvigil to help wean me off the amphetamines as well as lower dosage intake. YES, a lot of the anxiety, sleeplessness and depression are related to current circumstances in my life, however, where I am is not where I want to be or where I'm headed.. Life is a journey, and all my meds have become a part of a journey I never thought I'd find myself taking. I don't want life/meds to define me, or create a me I no longer recognize, because scarily enough that seems to be a common pattern. As I overcome each and every daily obstacle, I also don't want to be "hooked" on my meds or needing "more" to wake up/sleep/function.. I'd like to work on finding a solution towards weaning off my meds NOW, and work my way off slowly, primarily the Adderall. I'm hoping by suggesting to my doctor and showing him my research he may agree (IF ITS EVEN A LOGICAL COMBO, CLEARLY IM NOT A DOCTOR) nuvigil could help me. I've already started taking less of my anti depressants, trazadone and xanax without discussing with doc because he is always busy.. My next appt I want to go in fully prepared with a plan and an overall goal to REDUCE my Adderall dose, but overall, I'm clueless!!! I have no idea what other meds other than nuvigil "could" potentially help if at all. I could be entirely wrong, Anyone with any experience using one vs other or both simultaneously, or anyone with constructive input, PLEASE COMMENT/SHARE!!

  • Why would i get copd since i never smoked?
    I have several autoimmune disorders, I was shocked to get the COPD diagnosis since I have never smoked but I had second hand smoke first 23 years of my life.
    My doctor said my Autoimmune Hepatitis and Primary Biliary Cholingitis set me up for COPD.
  • Has anybody had multi lobar pneumonia from reaction to methotrexate?
    Bilateral multilobar pneumonia - rheumatologist considers it was caused by a reaction to methotrexate I was taking for ankylosing spondylitis and I was lucky to survive. Anyone have this and later shown to have scarring of the lungs?

  • Low potasium and mood
    While being treated for cancer about 3 years ago and thus taking a number of blood tests, I was diagnosed with low potassium level and prescribed a regular dosage. I had noticed that when I forgot to take my potassium pills, I soon began to feel more depressed than usual and to feel anxious. Taking the ills soon alleviated these symptoms. (I have had depression for most of my life but long ago decided against taking any of the anti-depression Rx pills because I disliked their side effects, especially on my ability to think clearly.) Very recently I finally got around to looking on the Internet to see whether low potassium was associated with mood disorders _ and I found that it was. This site apparently didn't study anyone my age (I'm 78), so I decided to offer these comments. I have at least one grandchild who has been formally diagnosed with depression, and one who is ADHD. Before finding that the relationship of mood and low potassium was formally known, I had suggested to their parent in a low-key way that perhaps she and they should check with their doctors about their potassium levels. Now I'm quite sure that is something they and their doctors should consider. Meanwhile, I am glad to have found formal study of what had been to me only an anecdotal kind of belief that the two were linked. More importantly, in all my years of doctor visits, no doctor and no psychologist has ever mentioned this link to me. Therefore, I hope that somehow this link is brought more to the forefront of medical attention.
  • Zoplicine /and /xanax taken together
    I am wondering if zopocline is compatible with Xanax. I have taken the together and had no adverse effects. Has any had this experience?
  • Lipitor and panic attack insomnia
    My doctor put me on generic lipitor my triglycerides were slightly high 158 vs 150 goal and cholesterol not bad 128/28 although my ratio is bad. After less than a week on the medicine I woke up at 3 am wide awake and unable to calm down. I had anxiety issues several years go but have been off the meds for several years, I have a lot on my mind, aging parents and mother in law, kids in college that are struggling, my wife and I are 55 in corporate America, getting pushed aside, what to do in retirement, etc..but I was keeping it all together. I have incredibly anxious since that night. Still waking up at 3 am every night. Initially lots of thoughts about my loved ones dying. Thoughts about either my wife or I living alone, these thoughts have faded. None of the issues are on my mind but I get crazy anxious and cannot be alone. I am able to fall asleep, actually fall out really hard. Wake up every night at 3 and end up very anxious by noon. No appetite, lost more than 10 lbs in 10 days. On some meds to calm down and back on the anxiety meds. I believe the Lipitor triggered the attacks. I stopped the Lipitor immediately.
  • I wish i had never taken ambien
    Ambien was prescribed after my sleep study showed severe sleep latency and awakening. In the five hours I slept I woke 85 times and had only 5 minutes of deep sleep. However, the doctors couldn't make a recommendation because they could detect no cause for the poor sleep pattern. My doctor offered Ambien and since I had obviously needed the help sleeping I took it. For the next 10 years I suffered incredible depression. For example I remember laying in bed staring at the ceiling with tears rolling into my ears but I was too tired to wipe them away and realizing that I wanted to die so badly but there was no way I could have done anything about it. The worst effects were the loss of consciousness and the verbal abuse that I heaped on my husband and son. An example of each : I actually had sex with my husband that I could not remember amd hundreds of other actions and discussions. My husband started asking every morning what I remembered of the night before. He could usually tell when I was Ambien-awake (his name for it) he said my eyes would get glassy and my voice cadence would be off. Unfortunately my oldest son was going from infant to 8 years old at this time and any ifraction or even without provocation I would scream horrible things in his face. I don't remember much of it but what I do remember causes me enormous regret. He went from a happy and active toddler to a terrified amd anxious pre-teen. We are still working through the effects of this behavior. Finally, after a surprise pregnancy (see example above) My baby was placed in NICU and I stayed at the Ronald McDonald House and my son and husband visited when they could. Somehow my Ambien prescription was stopped and so I began going through withdrawal but I had no idea what was going on. My vision became so blurred thqt I couldn't identify items unless they were very large and then only by colors. When I visited my son those several days in the NICU I couldn't walk straight and would try to aim myself toward my goal until I hit a wall and I would correct course. These things didn't bother me at all but the nurses in the NICU were with me nearly the entire day because they were afraid I would have a stroke or who knew. Finally, after discussing these symptoms we decided to gradually stop the medication. Thankfully, i didn't have any withdrawal symptoms then. I did feel like an incredibly heavy and black blanket had been lifted away. Ever since I have had very little trouble with depression despite the continuation of sleep disturbance and pain. On a scale from one to 10 for depression with 10 being committing suicide I think my 10 years on the medicine was probably an 8.5 (I desperately wanted to die) and since stopping the medication I don't think it has gone above a 4 and is usually a 2 or 3. I will spend the rest of my life trying to repair the damage my verbal abuse caused my oldest son and my husband. For 10 years they lived in fear of my rages if I had a bad episode with Ambien.
  • Prednisone side effects (1 response)
    Took this for 6 days, tapering at the end to treat a rash caused by a spider bite. The heartburn started on day 1 but the other symptoms didn't begin until day 4. None we're severe but they weren't fun either. The blurred vision was worst.
