  • Does adderal have an effect on alzheimers? (1 answer)
    Adderall has been effective in treatment of ADHD, and I like it. It is highly effective as treatment of lack of focus, and I find that tasks (such as academic research) are much enhanced by it. However I am beginning to experience what I fear is early stages of Alzheimer's.(I am 68). I have been studying the disease, and have been doing things recommended as valuable to retard Alzheimer's development as well as to counter symptoms such as forgetfulness, and loss of mental acuity with significant success. I believe, at least in the short run, Adderall has had a positive effect in my endeavors to counter the symptoms of the disease. However, since one of the principal causes of Alzheimer's is inflammation, I wonder if Adderall causes inflammation, and if it does, is there a way to counter the inflammation?
  • 2 weeks after septoplasty, inside of middle/upper nose burns-why?
    The diabetes was diagnosed about 5 yrs. ago. On prednisone for a psuedotumor. Surgeon went little bit into sinuses to cut a piece of bone. That was to help drain sinuses; chronic infections and suspected link to psuedotumors. Probably blew nose sooner than recommended; clotting made difficult to breath. What's recommended to relieve that sort of pain?

  • Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
    My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?
  • I experienced fatigue, muscle aches and twitches with asacol
    Was taking 2 tablets 3x per day for a month and a half and began having muscle twitches, muscle and joint aches and fatigue severe enough people noticed I couldn't find correct words to finish my sentences. I stopped taking it and it has taken almost three weeks to feel human and energetic again. People thought I had Mono. It DID however put my colitis into remission!
  • Metformin, vision blurred
    My primary care physician prescribed Metformin for type 2 Diabetes. First pill caused "wobbly" then blurred vision within a half hour of taking. Asked doctor if I should stop taking the drug. She said no. Second pill doubled the blurring immediately. Long distance and middle vision (computer screen distance) Lost an entire eye chart of clarity. Saw eye Dr. immediately prior to the incident, saw him immediately after and he did weekly checks until vision returned. Asked primary care Dr. if I should continue taking drug. She said yes. I switched doctors, studied half-life of the drug, stopped taking Metformin and continued with diet and exercise changes to restore blood sugar to pre-diabetic levels. Vision remained blurred about 6 weeks. Increased type size on computer screen to max. Wore two pair of glasses stacked--to see well enough to function. The day long distance vision wobbled again as it returned to almost normal levels, I drank two mugs of blackberry sage decaff. tea. Saw eye doctor, measured vision change. I wondered if the sage (a mild vasodilator) helped my eyes recover after the residual Metformin was out of my system. Eye doctor said he saw no reason not to continue drinking the tea in moderation. One mug a day, several days later, middle vision returned to almost normal, no retinal damage.

    I no longer drink sage tea daily, but sounds like a study might be warranted if it can help those of us who have this alarming side effect reaction to Metformin.
