Is prozac causing my urinary incontenance
From this study (3 days ago):
Was taken to the hospital by daughter because of dementia type symptoms while on pain meds for back and being a heavy smoker. Was diagnosed in the hospital with COPD and aspiration pneumonia. Was put on Bi-pap machine but confusion symptoms did not improve. Ammonia levels were checked and were in the 70's. My liver was checked and was fine. Was given Lactulose and symptoms improved every day. After being released from the hospital with new meds, smoke cessation, and ammonia levels in the 20's.. 5 days later my daughter took me back because of more confusion symptoms. Ammonia levels were back up to 45 and they gave me more lactulose to take home to use and symptoms have improved. So at this point it seems my COPD is under control but I am constantly worried about my ammonia levels increasing. I dont want to over take any lactulose because I dont want to mess up my potassium levels. So what's causing the ammonia to increase??
From this study (4 days ago):
I was diagnosed with a Hyphema in my right eye. The eye had not been traumatized or injured in any way before this condition occurred. The Ophthalmologist informed me this condition is usually cause by Trauma or injury to the eye. I had no such trauma or injury and the ocular pressure in both eyes was elevated.The eye that had the Hyphema bleed was quite elevated (34) upon diagnosis. Upon treatment the eye is improving, however I have remained concerned about the possible cause. Since that time, I have only one prescribed medication (Spiriva)I had been taking for a year or so. I reviewed the information pamphlet for the Spiriva and it does state "stop taking Spiriva if you experience New or worsened increased pressure in the eyes" I have stopped taking Spiriva.
