Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Bipolar 2 since 1975. recently d/c'd lithium. looking for a treatment that will not make glaucoma condition worse (1 answer)
I am trying to determine which medication to use now that my 40 year successful run with Lithium is over. (The kdneys say it's time to quit). However, I do not want to increase intraocular pressure by using a medication known to increase said pressure. Most importantly, I do not want to lose my livelihood or cause my family and friends unforeseen difficulty due to ineffective medications. I have little faith in the alternatives and see Depakote, Geodon, and Lamictal as poor seconds at
best. Any suggestions???
- Is it safe to take effexor and ibuprophen?
Have sinus infection which I'm taking doxycycline and ibuprophen for headache. I also take Venlafaxine for GAD. Is it okay to take Advil or acetaminophen while taking venlafaxine, not at the same time??
- Is there a link between forteo and macular holes?
My 82 year old mother has osteoporosis and was taking Forteo for several years (stopped taking aprox. 2 1/2 years ago) She also has Glaucoma. She recently developed a macular hole and just had surgery to correct it. Is there any link between Forteo and macular holes or other vision problems? We are concerned that her other eye will develop a macular hole at some point, and want to investigate the possible connection between her osteoporosis and the taking of Forteo and her severe vision issues.

- Levaquin and confusion symptoms
Confusion. Stopped dosage at day 6 of 7; prescribed 500 mg. 1 daily. I thought the confusion was from the weeks of pretty severe coughing symptoms, associated with the sinusitus - thought maybe from a lack of oxygen from not being able to breathe well for so long. I finally stopped the med. when "dementia-type" symptoms were apparent, night following dose #6, I was having difficulty determining which (of 2) pieces of hardware at our master bathroom sink, was the soap and which was the water (have lived here 15 years). I had been having many occurences of confusion for the majority of the 6 days on Levaquin and had been saying I was often feeling "so confused" for several days but none so apparent as this was. I am a long time mental health counselor and realized this was what I understand dementia symptoms resemble, stopped the med. Had M.D. appt. next day, he agreed stop good idea, put me on prednisone. Did research this morning before beginning prednisone & am not going to take it, due to reading it may increase negative side effects of the Levaquin. I am also e-mailing your website info. to my M.D. as I am also treated for depression and anxiety symptoms and fear symptoms will worsen. This is day 2 off the med., no improvement in confusion symptoms YET, I am hopeful that people wrote in soon after their negative experiences and that the confusion symptoms will resolve (soon.)
- Cardiac stress test (thalamine ) and oxycodone
I am writing this for my sister-in-law, Maria, who is not able to do so and for whom my husband, her brother, and I are the POAs. In May of 2012, Maria had a recurring pain in her leg which took her to the hospital again. She was diagnosed for a second time as having a strained muscle. Then the hospital asked her if she had any chest pain. With her severe migraines she often has pain or feels like she has pain everywhere. The hospital asked her caregiver if she could have a chemical (thalamine) stress test as she could not stand for a regular stress test. Her caregiver thought that since her foot doctor had said that eventually they needed to know if she could withstand a foot operation she needed that a chemical stress test would be needed at some point. So her caregiver said to go ahead with the chemical stress test. The hospital apparently did not check her meds and her dehydrated condition upon entering the hospital or perhaps they would have thought twice about administering the test. She passed the cardiac part of the test but was rendered quite confused and unresponsive. She could not go home in that condition so was transferred to a skilled nursing facility where they could deal with what was nearly a catatonic state. There she displayed extreme confusion and inability to take care of herself in any way. She had to be hand-fed for a week or so. It was as if she had had a stroke. The hospital said tests for stroke had been inconclusive. It took her three months to recover to some semblance of her old self and another 3-4 months to be "there" and present in all ways. She still exhibits confusion from time to time but had shown some of that before her stress test. She had had a stroke in 2003 and it did leave her with some mobility problems as well as confusion sometimes.. Later we learned a friend of ours' husband had had the identical stress test in the same hospital and he also was taking oxycodone for a sore knee. He came out of that test nearly catatonic as well. So why is this not in the literature? Do no harm is a doctor's first charge.
