Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • I have been told by my gastroenterologist that i have gastroparesis, what are my treatment options, if any?
    I've had a CT scan and a Gastric Emptying study completed. My stomach is only 35% emptied after 4 hours, it should be at least 90% empty at that point. I have a colonoscopy and esophagealendoscopy scheduled for the first week of the year. What are my treatment options at this point?
  • Any information on deaths from taking lyica and high doses of alprazolam (1 answer)
    My Mother was a healthy 89 yr old with no healt issues, she was put on anxiety medicine, which she took regularly. She was also taking Lyric and had just started her Macular degeneration shots. She was prone to bladder infections and we went to the dr. for that, labs showed high calcium, within one week I had to take her to the emergency room, within one day she was on oxygen, within three days she was in the ICU intubated and unresponsive. She remained in ICU for 4 days had renal failure and died two days later.
  • Can nuvigil (vs adderall) be used simultaneously to help wean off 60mg/day of adderall? (1 answer)
    I have been on Adderall 30mg 2x daily for years!! I've had it lowered to 20mg, I've TRIED to go months without it (when not working) however I feel I've built up a tolerance level to the point that it's not as effective as it once was. My personal life has detoured WAY past anything an ADHD medication can possibly help as far as focusing on NEEDED tasks etc. I end up feeling wrapped up in what I'm doing at the moment that my anxiety increases due to all that I haven't been able to accomplish. I take various medications for various reasons, depression, anxiety, bulimia etc., and for the most part the doses have varied based on circumstances and current need at said time of prescription.. MY FAMILY HAS A HISTORY OF HEART DISEASE, And realizing that I'm already on the highest Adderall dosage scares me (and THEN as I think about it, it makes my heart race!). I've also noticed increased muscle spasms as well as extreme and intense pressure on my jaw (TMJ). MY QUESTION IS: does anyone have any experience LOWERING their Adderall dosage AND adding Nuvigil? The research I've done to date gives me impression that it could help balance out the more extreme effects of Adderall (60mg/day) but that the nuvigil would or could potentially help with the EXTREME exhaustion I feel as Adderall wears off. Some days I just crash, some days I sleep fine and others no matter how hard I tryyyy, I just CAN'T fall asleep, therefore making the next day worse! IDEALLY I'D LIKE TO BE MED FREE, right now I need them, but am hoping maybe I can speak with my doctor to lower Adderall and add Nuvigil to help wean me off the amphetamines as well as lower dosage intake. YES, a lot of the anxiety, sleeplessness and depression are related to current circumstances in my life, however, where I am is not where I want to be or where I'm headed.. Life is a journey, and all my meds have become a part of a journey I never thought I'd find myself taking. I don't want life/meds to define me, or create a me I no longer recognize, because scarily enough that seems to be a common pattern. As I overcome each and every daily obstacle, I also don't want to be "hooked" on my meds or needing "more" to wake up/sleep/function.. I'd like to work on finding a solution towards weaning off my meds NOW, and work my way off slowly, primarily the Adderall. I'm hoping by suggesting to my doctor and showing him my research he may agree (IF ITS EVEN A LOGICAL COMBO, CLEARLY IM NOT A DOCTOR) nuvigil could help me. I've already started taking less of my anti depressants, trazadone and xanax without discussing with doc because he is always busy.. My next appt I want to go in fully prepared with a plan and an overall goal to REDUCE my Adderall dose, but overall, I'm clueless!!! I have no idea what other meds other than nuvigil "could" potentially help if at all. I could be entirely wrong, Anyone with any experience using one vs other or both simultaneously, or anyone with constructive input, PLEASE COMMENT/SHARE!!
  • Could smoking marijuana once cause retinal detachment? after smoking a small amount of mj, my retina detached and i ended up having emergency surgery to mend it.
    I had had laser surgery, cataract surgery much earlier--all successful. Members of my family have glaucoma and so do I. After hearing that marijuana might ease the glaucoma, I smoked one time. That night, my retina began to detach. Is there any causal relationship between the marijuana and the retinal detachment?
  • Is there some kind of self help that works for stopping nightmares
    HELP! I am sick and tired (literally) of getting 5-6 nightmares per week. I sleep well but at waking time I get nightmares related to two main anxieties in my life. I cannot go off meds. Can I take them in smaller dosages, beak the dosing times during the day. I know it is the fault (mostly) of Pristiq. But what to do? I already do Yoga, bedtime relaxation routine, and a lot of healthy other stuff. HELP if you have kicked this problem.

  • Xanax almost killed me!
    I took xanax and went to bed, I woke up in hospital. I had been there a long time in a coma. They were about to take me off life support! All because of xanax.
  • 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 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.

  • I've lost 65 lbs and all of my appetite during the last 12 months. I quit taking the Metformin 6 months ago and that hasn't changed anything. I've had a CT Scan and a Gastric Emptying Study done to confirm the diagnosis. I'm having a colonoscopy and an esphogealendoscopy in January to find any further cause of the damage.

    Have you ever had a fall or injure to the head? (I never had it) but I can relate to you. Because I had a dog that gave birth to these 5 puppies. One of the puppies that I gave away later had continues epilepsy. I later found out that the dog's owner abuse her a lot (hitting in the head.) But none of other 5 or the mom or dad had it (I own the mom & dad). The owner ended up giving the dog away to get killed. I had to go the shelter to take the dog back. One thing I noticed that the dog would get seizure whenever she heard loud noises (like my mom yelling) couple hours prior that. May be you could try to figure out if there was any pattern that could help you to prevent the seizures from happening. Some people think it's silly but one thing helps me going through difficult times is to focus on the positives by listening to the audio "The Secret" & "The Power" from Rhonda Burne. I hope you can get cured soon; miracles do happen. I wish you all the best.
