  • I take klonopin and diltiazem (calcium channel blocker blood pressure medicine) and am concerned about side effects. my accupuncturist recommends the ashwagandha. anyone have any issues with this?
    I take these prescription medications but have been going to an accupuncturist since 2012. I have trouble sleeping at night without my clonazepam and take naps during the day and am having trouble losing weight. She thinks that my adrenal glands may be fatigued and told me to try something called Adrenal Response which contains Sensoril Ashwagandha. When I looked up Ashwaganda it said that it could interact with the Clonazepam or Klonopin and also with High blood pressure medication. I am a little concerned. I mentioned this to her and she said they both are metabolized by the liver and it should be ok to take it, just to take it an hour or more after I take the Clonazepam. Has anyone had any issues with interactions with their prescribed meds while taking Ashwagandha? I don't want to have to monitor my blood pressure because my blood pressure medication works good for me. Any help would be appreciated because I want to try it but I am a little scared too. Thanks, Crystal
  • Does gabapentin cause stevens johnson syndrome?
    is gabapentin associated with drug hypersensitivity, stevens johnson syndrome, DRESS, or erythema multiofrma ?
  • I amwondering if i have myathesia gravis (1 answer)
    I am thinking that after a long bout of going nowhere with Drs. That I might have Myathesia Gravis. My Grandmother had it and I am thinking that my brother had it when he was born.He failed to thrive at first as he was unable to suck very well. He did make it though with a forced feeding of milk and bananas. He was sickly all his life though and recently died of cancer. I noticed that my eye is drooping on the left side. I have periods of extream fatigue, my left arm is tingly and I can't seem to feed myself without changing to my right hand. I have spinal stenosis and severe pain in my hip area but my right big toe seems to be tingly from time to time. I also have a swallow problem that causes me to choke or throw up the food or drink. Pills stay part way down a lot. My G.I. guy wants to strech my esophegus. I tend to eat soft foods and stay away from steak or anything chewy. I have congestive heart failure, sudden cardiac death, syncope all of which I greatfully managed to survive. I have fibromyalgia, and some nodules on my chest wall ( i forget what that is called) I have had 5 or 6 bouts with Costochrondritus which was way worse than actually having my heart stop. Costo hurts like a beech! I am frequently short of breath, exercize intolerant and have trouble holding my water.I have good dsys and bad days. Also my left hand and the base of my scalp goes all numb and tingly sometimes. There is also a terrible electric shock type feeling in my mid back area that makes me completely stop in my tracks and feel like I have been hit with a 350 lb pro football player. I have been hypokalimic after taking water pills (Ferosimide) i have taken prendisone for the Chosto and feel better immediatly, but I have mental reactions to too much Prendisone. I am very allergic to NSAID'S and pennicillian. Anyone got any ideas that the Drs have maybe not thought of... I would sure like to get better and go dance but the last time I danced I lasted 3 minutes before I had to fall into a chair.
  • How many/what percentage of older males who have had a stroke, have another while taking uloric?
    Concerned as my Rheumatologist wants me to start using Uloric40 mg and while I see that their is a relatively small incidence of stroke occurring (unless you are part of the "small" group); I have been unable to locate statistics for those previous stroke patients that are now using or have used Uloric, and had another stroke.
  • Can i take slophyllin with gabapentin
    I am currently taking gabapentin for spinal nerve pain but before I was prescribed this medication I used to take slophyllin for a persistent tickley cough. I want to know if it is safe to take them both.

  • 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.
  • Ranexa and erectile dysfunction
    I have experienced moderate ED with taking multiple heart and NO meds. This has been manageable and acceptable. Cardiologist added Ranexa (Ranalozine) 3 weeks ago and I am now experiencing complete erectile and ejaculatory failure.
  • Cough and gabapentin
    Have chronic cough for 6 yr's at least.3 yr's ago it got bad enough to seek doc. Help. Took all the tests . Tried to tell me I had asthma,copd, ect. Put me on sprivia, symbicort, singular, helped a little for awhile. Long story short. Went to one doc. He asked me some questions about my cough. Figured out it usually started with a tickle on the left side of my throat. And he put me on gabapentin 300mg. 3 times Aday. Which is for nerve damage. It took about 7days to see some change. And about 35days To stop the chronic cough. I still cough once in awhile. But no chronic coughing. Now I am going to try and see if I can stop the other med,s one at a time and see what happens

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I have been on most of these drugs for some time and my symptoms of sleep paralysis and sudden depression and dizziness have me worried that they are associated with one of the medications that I am on. My Rhum doctor thinks that I have Fibromyalgia that may have been brought on by my inflammatory poly arthritis and that the severe crushing pain in my feet is due to neuropathy. I have also had shingles twice and have post herpetic neuropathy in my hip. I am getting scared to sleep because of the disturbing dreams/paralysis and it is increasing my anxiety and I believe it is causing my depression as I am crying at the drop of a hat.

  • I was in a car accident in 2000. My lower back was trashed, and had to be reconstructed basically. I have fusions and titanium, all of this as causd many other health problems to arise over the last 10 years. But, I live a pretty normal life, most people don't even know there is anything wrong with me. : )

    Ultracet and Ultram, any drug from that family can be very dangerous, I had a serious reaction with Ultracet. I had 3 seizures before we figured out what was happening to me.

    Solu-Medrol was used in the hospital through my IV, for a complicated migraine problem. I do not know if I had some kind of allergic reaction to it, or if that drug just does that to people, but, I was ripping the IV out of my arm! I couldn't stand it! It felt like fire ants were under every inch of my skin crawling and biting me all the way down and back up my arms and legs! It took hours to stop, and it did not help the migraine either.

    allergic reaction to vancomycin and sulfamethoxazole....
    I was given vancomycin through an iv 2 days ago. Today I decided to take some sulfamethoxazole and the allergic reaction is unbearable. It's been 4 hrs and the burning aching hasn't stopped. How did u manage to stop the allergic reaction. I'm wondering if I should wait it out or go into er.
