  • Intrsoccular pressure increase associated with wellbutrin
    I was given a prescription for Wellbutrin in approximately 1998. I had has my ocular pressure checked a year prior to this and it was okay. At the time, I only needed to wear reading glasses, common in people over 45. I took the drug at the full prescribed dosage for two weeks. Immediately prior to the narrow angle glaucoma episode, my vision had actually seemed to improve. For one day, prior, I could read without reading glasses. The following night, I was watching tv, and things suddenly became foggy. It was actually as if a fog had enveloped the room. I could not see anything except to discern between light and dark areas. I had to have emergency laser surgery the next morning. I mentioned to the doctor that Iwas taking Wellbutrin to stop smoking, and asked if it could have caused the ocular pressure increase. he consulted the PDR, and said there was no mention of it causing increases in ocular pressure. One year later my primary care doctor again insisted that I stop smoking, and again I mentioned that I thought it might increase ocular pressure. She told me to take a half dose, I did, and I took it one week, at which time I again experienced another episode of narrow angle glaucoma. When I go to the doctor's office my pressure in my left eye was 72, and 68 in my right eye. I was then referred on a triage basis to another doctor. I spent the rest of the day in his office having drops administered every fifteen minutes(extremely painful). I had extensive laser surgery the next morning.It required over fifty shots from the laser machine into each eye, (also extremely painful). I had lost considerable peripheral AND CENTRAL VISION in my left eye, and a good deal in my right. As a result of having to have such extensive laser surgery I also had cataracts that began at 50% maturity. I was advised by the surgeon that I should wait to have the cataracts removed "until my vision and quality of life was so poor that I was ready to commit suicide" because having the cataracts removed would cause the pressure in my eyes to become very difficult to control, and that more than likely I would end up being black blind. I would never use Wellbutrin under any circumstances, and I always check to make sure that any new meds I may be put on don't have anything to do with an increase in ocular pressure. If they do, I refuse to take them. The surgeon said he was surprised that I didn't lose more vision than I did, and I am grateful that I didn't, and that he was a good surgen. He wrote an article concerning this case for a medical journal since he said he had been seeing a recent increase of narrow angle glaucoma.
  • Librium 25mg and wellbutrin 300mg for >1 month
    I've been taking librium twice daily, morning and night, for about 3 months now along with wellbutrin XL in the morning. I've basically had the mood of "I don't care" and a great boost in confidence.
  • Pulmonary arterial hypertension and marijuana
    Marijuana does not cause Pulmonary arterial hypertension, instead it treats it. This study proves that the indigenous cannabinoid, anandamide, lowered aldosterone levels, and therefore would lower blood pressure (http://www.odon.uba.ar/uacad/fisiologia/docs/nuevos/expression.pdf).
    For more than 15 years, no blood pressure medications would keep my blood pressure down. I would be on two medications, yet hospitalized with a pressure of 200/130 when I stopped treating my illness with cannabis. Now, I am on no blood pressure meds, and keep my pressure down around 130/78. I would have had a stroke years ago without it.
  • Pruritus ani. and marijuana (1 response)
    i just got popped for smoking weed on a drug test 2 weeks ago. OF COURSE i was crushed by this news,BUT,i think not smoking the last 2 weeks has CURED my pruritus ani. I suffered and i mean suffered with this the last 2 years and tried giving up everything i thought might have caused this. Certain foods,beer,diet soda to no prevail. I havent felt this good down there in over 3 years!!!! If i knew that was what was causing this,i would of quit years ago and never got popped in the first place!!!! And yes,i would rather give up smoking weed then feel what i felt the last few years.
  • Bedwetting with paxil and wellbutrin
    I have been using both of these drugs and now have bedwetting issues 5 times a week on average. I would rate the bedwetting as moderate about a6/10 but my wife and I can live with this as she had made the comment " you are back to the man I married ". I started taking these due to depression about work and anxiety about work. We both think we can live with the bedwetting as no one needs to know about it
