That's the truth! :( Sorry there isn't an easy fix.
Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can qysmia and garcinia cambogia be taken together
I just want to know if taking both drugs will be beneficial to my weight loss
- Does lyrica cause neutropenia and if it does, how long does it take to subside after stopping the drug?
The patient is a 28 year old female who has been involved in a horrific car accident back in February 7th 2014. She had bilateral femural fracture along with fractured right tibia and fibula in addition to right humerus. However, to make it short, after treatment, the outcome was not acceptable with various complications. The patient is scheduled for another surgery, however, her CBC shows neutropenia (3.4).
- 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

- High potassium blood levels caused by vitamin d3
I have Parkinson's and fell and broke my hip. Otherwise I have good health. While checking my blood, the doctor was extremely concerned that my potassium levels were above 5.0 and wanted to take rather drastic measures to correct it. Since I have no other symptoms, I was resistant. In the meantime, I thought I saw a study that said vitamin D supplementation could cause a false positive reading on potassium. I was taking 5000 units of D a day for over a year. I stopped taking it while I was in the hospital and the blood level potassium began to normalize.
I need the vitamin D and need to find out if it is truly detrimental or an illusion .
- Ampyra vs kidney stones
Started taking Ampyra Sept 1, 2014.
Had a severe kidney stone in mid-September.
Another two weeks ago.
No family history or them. I also have no history of them.
Drink fresh squeezed lemon daily and lots of water.
Take Ibuprofen when it starts up.
Ampyra is helping with leg strength a tiny bit.
My MS is 40 years old so it is acting like it is old!
- 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.
- The zoloft/vyvanse concoction ruined my life.
I started taking these drugs about two months ago. I am diagnosed ADHD by a psychiatrist. I received these medications from a doctor whom I know and is married to a friend my wife. She, the doctor, gave them to me from her personal medications in a plastic baggy. I was given loose instructions for taking these on a piece of paper. I was never given the paperwork with warning signs. 10 days after starting these medications, I attacked my wife and am now separated. I am barred from seeing her and my daughter by means of a Victims Protective Order. I am a normally nonviolent person. Most who know me call me a peacemaker...a pacifist. I am still horrified by the events of that night. 15 seconds changed my life forever. I hope and pray my story helps others. Don't be naïve, as I was, when given medications. Ask questions.
- Loss of menstruation
I stopped using setralin 50 µg in August 2014. (I have been taken it in 1 year for my PMS). After stopping taking the pills my period become very short in september and then desappeard. I got a funcional cyste (about 30 mm) and after 10-days treatment with progesterone I got my period in the end of oktober. Two weeks afterwards I got a spare bleeding and my gyn thought that it my be an ovulation bleeding. Anyhow I have not got my period yet. The samples taken in oktober showed low FSH and heigt E2. The doctor explained that it is posible that stopping setralin could cause this hormonal imbalance. I must say that my periods were not so regular for very long time like during that year with setralin but I had other side effects like problem with concentartion, nussea etc.
For many years ago I was on Zoloft but I had not experienced the same problem. When I started the treatment this time they did not want to give me zoloft (because of the price). I had no choice but i experienced many symptoms from different generica of Setralin. I will meet my doctor om Monday again.

I do have Relapsing-Remitting MS. Went to doctor the other day I thought the issue in my hips, leg which is occasional in the right hip but pretty constant in the left. It is not painful- but it feels tight- and I have slight problem walking. Also having balance issues. Doctor things the hip is bursitis and not related to the MS. I think it is spasticity.
For three weeks have had SEVERE hyperglycemia. Am on a pump-basal rates have been increased greatly. Still having issues.
Lose about an hour or so of memory about an hour before I go to sleep occasionally.
