Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can i take melatonin if i take prograf?
    I take Prograf to prevent organ rejection in a liver transplant.
  • Can a patient that takes prograf and imuran can also take black cohosh suplements ?
    I am a kidney transplant patient, I had my transplant 4 years ago and because of my previous kidney function, now I have early menopause symptoms like, severe vaginal dryness, night sweats, low libido and so on... So i would like to know if i can take some of these herbs to help me out. Black Cohosh, Macafem, and wild yam.
  • My dad is suffering from the same post kidney transplant. whats the alternative solution for it?
    He has undergone kidney transplant 5 week back. His recovery was on track but all of a sudden platelets started reducing. Doctor treated him with plasmapheresis and FFP along with stopping tacrolimus. His platelets then slowly and gradually improved. However after starting the tacrolimus again, his platelets started reducing and he has been again hospitalized.
    Doctors inform that tacrolimus is causing the low platelets count and hence the same has been stopped. Is there any other alternative for tacrolimus?
  • Is synthroid and milk thistle safe?
    I was reviewing the case studies of Synthroid and Milk Thistle and I am not sure I am reading it correctly. I hope the information is incorrect regarding the studies with concurrent use of these drugs. I took one dose of Milk Thistle and it occurred to me that I probably should research to make sure it was safe to take with my Synthroid and hence I find this study. Confused and concerned...please respond. Thanks, Cheri RN
  • Could this drug cause periodontal bone loss, bone loss around teeth (4 answers)
    Do you suffer from periodontal bone loss or periodontal disease, or bone loss around teeth after taking this drug? Are your sodium levels low after taking this drug? I am a dentist and keep my teeth plaque free, but have had periodontal bone loss for which, I believe, must be drug related.

  • Turmeric and atrial fabrillation
    I am a "health nut" who has always avoided any and all tobacco and alcohol, am on no medication, am on a reasonably purer diet (organic foods etc.,) and daily take and assortment of vitamins, minerals and a few herbs like garlic and saw palmetto. I had recently began taking therapeutic doses of Turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties in both powered and capsule forms--(powdered form for approximately two to three weeks--one teaspoon twice daily; capsule form for approximately three or four days--one capsule twice daily.) On the day in question, I took one teaspoon of the powered form of turmeric with a late lunch and left off the capsule form. I jog/walk two or three miles intermittently and roughly twice a week. Into the second mile of a three mile jog/walk that night,I experienced an unusual weakness and fatigue, stopped after the second mile and pulse was over 200. I had sweated a lot and after resting a while, I walked the third mile back home and showered. I was unable to sleep. My heart was in atrial fibrillation which was diagnosed hours later at the local Medical Center ER. Heart rate was fluctuating in the 150-170 range and was brought down to 100-120 range with I.V. medication but stayed in that range. Exactly 11 hours after its beginning and with virtually no sleep for over 24 hours and after drinking only water but with very little food and no vitamin or Turmeric consumption, immediately after standing up for the third time in four or five hours to go to the bathroom, I suddenly converted back to a normal heart rate which is 60 to 70 beats a minute and was released from the medical center seven hours later. Plan to stop taking all forms of Turmeric.

  • Healthy with myeloma
    Diagnosed Feb 2010--Myeloma stage I. Now eat veggie with daily juicing and low carbs, plus supplements--B12, multi vitamins, folic acid, Turmeric, Holy Basil, Green Magma or other chlorophyll source. Sometimes Ganoderma mushrooms, cannabis juice, fresh noni juice (not fermented). I have no symptoms, no lifestyle change except diet.
  • Low platelet blood count
    Kidney transplant had been performed 10 years ago.Mycophenolate mofetil was introduced 5 years ago to replace azathioprine.It has caused various undesirable side effects like severe diarrhea,nausea,nose and gum bleeding and low platelet count.Most of them were reduced as soon as the dose decreased except from the low platelet count which seriously concerns me as it has gone almost down the lowest limit.
  • Suicide attempted at first then sadly completed from prograf
    The mother of my 12 year old son had a very successful career and recently received her 3rd kidney transplant after the previous kidney which lasted over 20 years had eventually succumbed to a chronic kidney disease. She had a very successful career as an RN and then a Nurse Anesthetist. Had a bright future and retirement and college plans etc. for herself and our son. House and vehicles paid off etc.

    She received a transplant which she waited 5 years on dialysis for. Still strong in her career and household and my sons care during those 5 years as well. Once she received her transplant and was prescribed Prograf 1 year ago her life changed dramatically. Confusion, severe depression, loss of focus crying several times a day. She pleaded about every month or so with the doctor to greatly reduce the Prograf or put her back on Immuran which worked well for her the previous 20 plus years. The doctor repeatedly told her there are no mental side effects associated with Prograf and that is was her and her kidney is fine. She went to see a therapist which did not help. She kept pleading the doctor for help including her family and loved ones pleading for her as well explaining how it dramatically changed her mentally. Sadly she began thinking her mind was irrecoverable from the damage from Prograf and started to think she would be a burden to her son and her family. The very ones she has always helped all these years. 6 weeks ago she attempted suicide driving her vehicle into a creek. She was admitted to a psychiatric hospital. A few days later released. She again pleaded with the doctor along with family members explaining how bad it is getting. Also visited a renal doctor locally she knew for her entire career. It was hard to do this as she was embarrassed about her condition but was desperate for help. Unfortunately that doctor to all of our surprise told her to go back to the first doctor and to persist with them. Sadly this was the last straw, she gave up, thinking she was mentally damaged for life despite all of us begging her to hold on til we found a doctor willing to help with something other than Prograf. She committed suicide a few days later. Leaving her son whom she loved and treasured more than anything. She left two suicide notes, one to her son explaining she was only going to hinder his life as she was now incapable of any kind of adult life and especially caring for him. She apologized of course but told him how absolutely special he is and to never ever change. She expressed her pride in him etc. and said she will always be watching him and keep sending signs of this. We believe she does.
