Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can meclizine cause insomnia once and sleepiness the next time
    I took Meclizine one night (as advised by pharmacist; she said it causes drowsiness), after experiencing my first attack of vertigo. It kept me awake almost all night. A couple weeks later, as I was getting ready for a special school event for my daughter, I thought another vertigo attack was coming on. Since the Meclizine didn't make me sleepy the first time but instead had the opposite effect, I thought it would be ok to take it (this was an evening event with a meal). After eating, I began to get very sleepy and my face almost fell in my plate.
  • Alprazolam & amoxicillin
    Have Diverticulitis from having Diverticulosis. Have had high blood pressure for
    about 4 years and it is controlled with the Norvasc & Clonidine. Enlarged prostate is controlled with Flomax & Avodart. Meclizine is for vertigo, take 2 25mg per day, 1 Am & 1 PM. Take 1 Norvasc AM & 1 Flomax PM.
  • Why would doctor prescribe meclizine when otc med available? stronger?
    Gastric bypass. After years found should not be prescribed extended release medications-- they do not work because stomach (duodenum) releases enzymes and acids to release XR. Suffer from GAD, MAD, PTSD, ADHD, Insomnia. I've driven away my best friend-- I'm tired of life-- alone.
  • My dads side of the family is diabetic and i am the only family member with aa. could they be linked?
    My dads side of the family is diabetic, I believe it was his aunt and grandmother that had diabetes. I am the only family member, on either side, that is known to have alopecia areata. I have had it for almost 4 years. Could these things be related?
  • Can chronic mastoiditis cause hallucinations?
    My husband went to see the doc yesterday for ear pain and the doc put him on 2 diff meds and now he has hallucinations

  • Only took this horrid medicine once and it ruined my life!!
    I only take this medicine one time and have suffered immensely ever since! I found one other forum were a child had been having seizures in their eyes rolled up after taking it once there's not much warning about this out there but I know I'm not the only one who has suffered greatly after taking this medicine. I now have two neurologists and 2 ENTs but they have still not been able to restore me... this medicine is evil.

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • I have recently been having boughts of Vertigo and recently have had the Antivert 12.5 3x's a day added to my list of medications..

    Also I was given the Transderm Scop 1.5 to help with the Vertigo. I would like to know if these two should be taken at the sametime. Also, if I am experiencing a tremendous amount of sinus pressure, should I take the Loratadine And Pseudoephedrine Sulfate (Andrx Pharms) - 10MG;240MG.
