Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • What would cause a false positive for valium? i.e. i didnt take it, but has shown up in several of my urine test (1 answer)
    I've been going to my Suboxone doctor for over a year now. In that time all I have done (as far as "narcotic" go) is my Suboxone and when my grandpa passed she wrote me a small script, on 2 different occasion for Xanax 0.5 (which I was actually able to hold onto until about a month ago..) Well, yesterday she said that Valium has been showing up in my system for the past several U/A (I take a test twice a month) which makes ZERO since because I haven't taken Valium in years...oddly enough, she also said in this last one there was a "barely detectable" opiate positive, which again, I've not had...My concern is the Valium, though...what could I be doing or taking that's causing that to show up on my test...thanks in advance :)
  • Is it ok to take excedrin migraine when taking propanolol?
    I take propanolol for migraine prevention. I got a bad headache so I took 2 excedrin migraines and now my heart beat is irratic and I have to taje deep breathes just to feel like I'm breathing.
  • After you stop taking excedrin does it still cause anxiety forever? (1 answer)
    I used to take excedrin everyday for headaches for a couple of years until one day I caught a panic attack and thought I was having a heart attack I was panicking,very shaky and thought I was going to die! I right away thought it had something to do with taking too much Excedrin so I threw it away and haven't took it since that was about a year ago, now I still always feel afraid, I hate doing things that I used to love to do but I force myself to do them. I also notice I feel panicky when I drive. Does anyone know if Excedrin caused me to still have anxiety a year later? Will it go away? Thanks
  • Does hydrochlorathiazide cause numbness and pain in your feet
    I've been taking hydrochlorathiazide for about a year, my feet are starting to hurt and are numb.
  • I was given a pre-employment screening and tested positive for meth. can my adhd, asthma and heart medication cause a false positive result? (1 answer)
    I just finished a pre employment mouth swab drug screening, then asked to undergo a urine test to be shipped off. I was told I tested positive for meth. I would like to know if any of my prescribed medications can cause a false positive or even the exedrine migraine otc I take could cause this type of result? I very anxious right now to find out how I could test positive for something I don't take

  • Benzonatate visual disturbance
    I was given this for a severe sinus infection along with an antibiotic so I could sleep without coughing. I realized after the third day on it that it was the reason I was having a snowy tv screen like effect in my vision, slight nausea, and a persistent headache. I originally attributed this to the antibiotic. I have a similar reaction to mucinex and bladder spasm controller medicines. I have hypothyroidism and celiac disease as well as ADHD.
