- Why is it necessary to stop tramadol before cervical myelogram? (1 answer)
I have been taking tramadol 400 mg a day for 15 years. I was just told to stop cold turkey in preparation for cervical myelogram in 2 days. I'm extremely concerned about withdrawal symptoms! What is the risk of continuing the tramadol?
- Take low dose aspirin daily. have gained 35# in 2 yrs. also cortef 5 mg daily. tapering off cortef, but could weight gain be an aspirin side effect? (1 answer)
Weight in 2010 = 148#. Blood clot 2010 - take small dose aspirin per day. Weight Sept 12, 2013=175#. In addition to aspirin take 5 mg Cortef for adrenal insufficiency (am in process of tapering down the Cortef). Armoir thyroid, flexerel , BP meds as needed. Discontinued Prozac June 2013. I am taking steps to figure out why I just keep gaining weight. I know that cortef being a steroid could be causing gain, but today I read that my low dose aspirin could cause weight gain. Could it be both? What alternative to aspirin, since I sure don't want another blood clot.
Hope someone can help me figure this out. Thanks,
- How should hydrocortisone (cortef) be tapered? am at 2.5 mg am per day.(2dary adrenal insufficiency)
Within 4 weeks of starting on Hydrocortisone, 40 mg, gained 21 lbs., almost entirely in stomach area; pushes on diaphragm, interferes with breathing (not previously a problem). Have continued to gain weight, despite having had a gastroplasty years ago (stomach = approx. 1/3rd of a cup). Am at 2.5 mg hydrocortisone, AM, daily, and am wanting to discontinue. How do I proceed? Withdrawal effects to expect?
Use CPAP (Continuous Positive Air Pressure) machine @ 9cm pressure at night. Still have some short apneic episodes. Scheduled for septoplasty and sinuplasty to correct nasal defects. Hopefully, these procedures will decrease sleep apnea.

- Long-term use of risperidone and antidepressants
I have been using Risperdal and antidepressants for 14 years for bipolar disorder. Last month I was diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency and progesterone deficiency. My cholesterol suddenly became high, I was tired all the time and more symptoms relating to my eventual diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency and progesterone deficiency. I must also say that at the same time of starting treatment I stopped using birth control pills. I feel there needs to be caution taken in all of these drugs. They seem to have a severe effect on hormone balance in the body.
- Celexa, xanax and restoril combo caused an immediate onset of dementia in my 79 year old father (1 response)
My father has been on Celexa for years now. 2 months ago, my mother (his wife of 50 years) passed away. My father immediately had anxiety and sleeping problems that accompanied his anxiety. His doctor prescribed, on top of the Celexa, Restoril for sleep, and Xanax during the day. Over a period of 1 month, my father has become confused, wets himself, doesn't understand the concept of a phone call and hangs up on me while he is in mid-sentence.... cries in panic, doesn't understand conversations, forgets the day... All of the things a progressed Alzheimer's patient would show... but this, again, has all taken place in literally 2 weeks. NOW... he has increased his Xanax from .75 MG throughout the day to 1.5 MG throughout the day... Which is not that much from my own research. But then when I DID the research, it stated that this combo, as well as Xanax, in general, can increase your chances on developing dementia if you are over the age of 65.
I wanted to see if anyone else had experienced this sudden change in behavior, and also if it is reversable with the removal of these medications in his life...
Thank you, in advance.

From this study (3 weeks ago):
Lisa on Dec, 22, 2014:
My Mother is in late stage dementia due to long term use of methotrexate. There was no warning of dementia on this drug when she first started taking it and her doctors never told her to watch for symptoms of dementia and never checked it. There has never been dementia in our family history and this is the reason we think it the methotrexate. Don't take this drug.
From this study (3 months ago):
I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.
