Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Does adderal have an effect on alzheimers?
    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?
  • I have been told by my gastroenterologist that i have gastroparesis, what are my treatment options, if any?
    I've had a CT scan and a Gastric Emptying study completed. My stomach is only 35% emptied after 4 hours, it should be at least 90% empty at that point. I have a colonoscopy and esophagealendoscopy scheduled for the first week of the year. What are my treatment options at this point?
  • Can i take garcinia cambogia while taking adderall, lithium, latuda
    I would like to start taking Garcinia Cambogia diet supplement colon cleansing regimen but I don't know if I can on these medications or not. Please help?
  • Migraine, simple partial seizure, or something else?
    In the spring, I experienced a very strange "aura" type thing and I don't know what it was or what was causing it.
    It started with just me feeling a bit off which happens because I take Adderall, and I'm pretty sure I took it that day, I do experience some side effects, so just an anecdote I guess. I curled up with a blanket as I was starting to feel a bit more odd. I could hear voices coming from the TV in the other room but they didn't make any sense. Lights started to seem bright/blurry, and that's when I saw a black blob resembling my cat (he's black) sitting at my feet in my peripheral. When I looked down, it disappeared. The aphasia went away but I started to get a little freaked out because well there was no cat. This is when the headache started. Out of sorts, I got up still wrapped in my blanket and went to get ready for bed so I could sleep off whatever this weird thing was. As I walked upstairs I began to feel a bit more like I was in a dream or not quite fully in reality. Once I got upstairs I noticed repetitive flashing lights in a dark room which was quite startling so I ran into my room. I distinctly remember looking into my closet and seeing the shelves bulge out and feeling like my room was bigger than usual. I quickly got changed and went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and such, more flashing lights, and the real lights in the bathroom seemed weird/blurry and bright. I dropped the blanket I was carrying and was hit with inexplicable confusion, I still don't know what I was confused about. I thought I was losing my mind and just stared at the blanket. When I got back to my room I was beginning to get extremely paranoid I was going insane (and based on what I was experiencing I think that would be a typical response) and settled into bed. I was starting to feel better, no more visual distortions and then the headache went away and I felt back to normal. Anecdotally, I feel I should note my cat (not a hallucination) wouldn't leave my side during this episode which is just cute and probably not important but anyway...
    The entire thing lasted about 7-10 minutes but it's hard to be sure. I had experienced some peripheral vision hallucinations before this, which seemed to be a side effect of Adderall as they started to happen after I started to take it. They were all like the one of my cat at my feet - black silhouettes. I pushed this incident to the back of my mind out of fear that I was going insane or had experienced some form of psychosis because of the hallucinations.
    Just this week I stumbled upon simple partial seizures when doing some research for a genetic disease project (I explored epilepsy out of curiosity). I became intrigued when it reminded me of this event because it explained quite a few of the symptoms (flashing lights, visual distortions, etc.) but the episode lasted too long for that to be the explanation and some things just weren't explained by that. I don't know what this was, and I haven't been able to find an explanation. I even explored the possibility of strokes and migraines but nothing fits. I don't want to say anything to a doctor or my parents because they'll probably send me to a psychiatrist and that is not something I'd like to do.
    Still at a loss and confused...

  • High cholesterol since on losartan and clonidine
    I found studies done ( via online reputable journals of medicine) that cholesterol was found to increase with the use of Losartan. Imagine that! The Dr was amazed since my healthy diet has not been changed for years. No statins for me!
  • Respiridone causes hyper activity
    My 7yr old is taking intuniv in the AM and respiridone @ pm but it makes run around crazy like a boost of energy
  • Belviq (lorcaserin) and adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine)
    I have been on Adderall for more than a year and I have recently started taking Belviq. For some reason a lot of doctors worry about a serious interaction between the two, in my experience the two get along just fine. Adderall helps me stay focused, while Belviq suppresses appetite.
    During the second week of Belviq I did have very small stomach upsets, such as heartburn but it did go away about 2 days later. Other than that the medication works well and I think it is safe for anyone to try who is looking to lose weight. Belviq works on serotonin and while the exact mechanism is unknown it causes appetite suppression in most people. Belviq being one of the medications that are approved for long term use, it may be very helpful to individuals who require a longer period of time on the medication. Belviq reminds me of an antidepressant I was on called Effexor, the two produce the same sense of satisfaction overall, but mostly with food. However Effexor’s side effects (show up around week 7-12) and made it so that the medication is almost impossible to used. Belviq at this time is not giving me any side effects, I think it’s a wonderful drug, much better than the other options like Contrive and Qsyimia. However it’s not for everyone the drug may work perfectly on 80 % of the people who try it but on others it may not. I recommend that the alternatives be considered such as Contrive or Qsymia if Belviq is not found helpful. If Belviq causes you to feel unwell, sad, depressed, or feel like you have the flu—stop taking Belviq and call your doctor as these may be signs of a life threatening condition. Always take the medication as directed by your doctor, do not adjust your own dose without consulting with the doctor.
    Belviq has been a wonderful addition to my life, it’s helped me take control of my body again I feel that the medication is very good, well tolerated, and just an amazingly well designed drug overall.
  • Adderall xr 30 mg and peripheral neuropathy
    I have been taking adderall xr 30 mg for the past five years, with some breaks. I started showing symptoms of peripheral neuropathy the second year. This year (my 5th year on adderall) has been the worst and most difficult for my peripheral neuropathy. I also suffer from major depressive disorder and HSV, and I have heard that both of them may be related to peripheral neuropathy.
  • Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
    In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.
