    PLEASE HELLPPPP MEEE
  • What has been the best outcome from prescriptions for mania
    I'm currently on xanax xr 3mg with 1 mg supplement as needed (rarely) but have been on the depekote with the Clonazepam with depekote it worked for about 9 months and seemed to wear off. Then was put on lithium with the Clonazepam sorta the same worked but kinda wore off and had trouble during elevated manic phases controlling them with the Clonazepam So after two physicians and a phsychiatrist my third physician that had me on the lithium and Clonazepam said I should use seroquil as a short term use. Kinda like a reset button. It worked well. But I went back to my original meds of xanax xr 3mg and 1 mg as needed. It seems to work well but sometimes panick about whether I'm using the 1 mg to much. I was prescribed 90. And only used them about once every five to ten days on average. Didn't want to call in prescription ( felt I was using to much) so ended up in another elevated manic phase and couldn't bring myself down. So I went back on the seroquil for a week. It worked but doctor wants me to try the oxcarbazepine along with the xanax for now. Not a lot of clear info on it but am taking it. Haven't noticed a very big difference. I tried taking it early one day and delaying the xr but could tell the anxiety was heavy on my chest so took the xr and went back to normal. Suppression from the xanax xr seems to work well as well as the 1 mg supplement as needed. Seroquil has only been used twice, as a reset ( which worked) just sedated for days. Is anyone in this situation? Driving me nuts trying to find a medicine that works. Don't want to be a test rat either. About seven years ago is when this really set in but looking back over my whole life have probably been a little on the manic side. Risk taker, impulsive, not really hyper but can get to talking fast and rambling, losing track of what I was even saying seconds before. Any input would be great. Never been really depressed always more on the manic side. Love the grandiose feelings but I know they can get out of control. I have two kids now 9 and 14. See some symptoms in both but would like to get myself figured out so I can help them in the future if needed. Is this just a fluid condition or is there anyone who has found a better treatment??
  • Venlafaxine and lamictal - abnormal reaction
    Over the past month or more, I have been having episodes of severe tiredness and weakness. I notice it a lot a day or two after I have spent a period of time outside in the sun. I know both of the medications are photosensitive and reactions have occurred due to long periods of exposure to sun light. Also, I am at or almost to the maximum levels of each medication. I take 150mg. b.i.d. of the venlafaxine and 150mg. of lamotrigine a day. Once or twice a week this happens. I have had blood work,E.K.G.'s and many other test's to find out what may be causing this. Nothing has come back showing any problems that may be causing this. I was wandering if this may be a cause of this problem. Thank you for your time.
  • What does it mean if i was told i'm in kidney failure and my blood work level is 1.6?
    I was previously on Dilantin for 20+ years. I have been off for 5-6 years now. I have had high blood pressure for 13 years. I tried a few medications, but had bad side affects. The doctor I was seeing @ that time took me off of them. In May 2013 I had chest & arm pain & was admitted in the hospital for evaluation & testing on my heart. I was told all my test were good, except for one! The doctor said I was in Stage 3 of Kidney Failure with a level of 1.6! What dose this mean???

  • Interactions of rantidine 150 mg & theophylline 200mg taken in am
    I started taking 150mg rantidine with 200mg theophylline, and zyrtec in the morning before breakfast. Within 1 hour of taking my medications, even after eating, I found myself overwhelmed with anxiety, restlessness, the inability to think, and the feeling of dread.
    I initially started taking rantidine in the evening, an hour before bed time, and found that it did not cause such a strong reaction. I really believe that these medications, when taken together, can really cause an adverse reaction for a person. I mean, it did me.
  • Folic acid withdrawal
    I took folic acid 5 for more than 2 years after my past abortion, i continue it until 5 days before that i missed to buy it! Every day i feel worth until today that i ate it and after 2 hours i feel dramatically better!
  • Are you mental on methadone
    My doctor changed my pain medication back in May of 2014 . I was pleased with how well it handle my back pain and was pleased with how inexpensive it was. My husband had been using the same drug with great results. It wasn't until about a month later I started to notice just feelings of sadness. I didn't think too much of it but then I would get such strong feelings of despair really bad that I would just cry. I also started getting a lot of panic attacks I had so much anxiety at times it prevented me from doing things. At one point I really thought I was having some sort of break down, but the feelings would have highs and lows and sometimes I would have a day with out them. Eventually after being on them for 7 months I went to my doctor and asked if it were possible I was experiencing these feelings from the Methadone. He wasn't sure but with it all happening right after I started taking them he decided to put me on something else. It's been about three weeks and even though the feelings are still there they are not as strong and seem to be passing. I hope as time goes I will feel like myself again and hope never to have to experience something like that again.
  • Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
    I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
  • Lamotrigine severe rash
    I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • Recently tapered off of Percocet slowly, but also had the flu at the same time. Used ADvil cold and Sinus, which dried out my sinuses too much. Developed sinus infection that isn't improving. Wondering if the this is a withdrawal symptom, even though I didn't seem to have any of the other w/d symptoms other then fatigue, which could just as well be a result of being ill and as side effect from Augmentin I am taking now.
