Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Requip cause dysphagia
    an increase caused me not to be able to swallow at all
  • Can i take garcinia cambogia while taking adderall, lithium, latuda
    I would like to start taking Garcinia Cambogia diet supplement colon cleansing regimen but I don't know if I can on these medications or not. Please help?
  • Does anyone else have peripheral neuropathy? anyone have pn with lichen sclerosus? i have pain in hands, feet and face.
    Pain much worse at end of day and when I overdo. Sleep difficult - but essential! Feel so much better if I get 6+ hours. At the moment, very distressed by swollen lips (mostly inside mouth) and tissue surrounding eyes. I'm sure I have some arthritis in my fingers and toes. I also have had lichen sclerosus on my skin for nearly 20 years. Have had the PN for 15 years or so. I'm afraid that the medications can actually make the condition worse. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears!
  • Migraine, simple partial seizure, or something else?
    In the spring, I experienced a very strange "aura" type thing and I don't know what it was or what was causing it.
    It started with just me feeling a bit off which happens because I take Adderall, and I'm pretty sure I took it that day, I do experience some side effects, so just an anecdote I guess. I curled up with a blanket as I was starting to feel a bit more odd. I could hear voices coming from the TV in the other room but they didn't make any sense. Lights started to seem bright/blurry, and that's when I saw a black blob resembling my cat (he's black) sitting at my feet in my peripheral. When I looked down, it disappeared. The aphasia went away but I started to get a little freaked out because well there was no cat. This is when the headache started. Out of sorts, I got up still wrapped in my blanket and went to get ready for bed so I could sleep off whatever this weird thing was. As I walked upstairs I began to feel a bit more like I was in a dream or not quite fully in reality. Once I got upstairs I noticed repetitive flashing lights in a dark room which was quite startling so I ran into my room. I distinctly remember looking into my closet and seeing the shelves bulge out and feeling like my room was bigger than usual. I quickly got changed and went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and such, more flashing lights, and the real lights in the bathroom seemed weird/blurry and bright. I dropped the blanket I was carrying and was hit with inexplicable confusion, I still don't know what I was confused about. I thought I was losing my mind and just stared at the blanket. When I got back to my room I was beginning to get extremely paranoid I was going insane (and based on what I was experiencing I think that would be a typical response) and settled into bed. I was starting to feel better, no more visual distortions and then the headache went away and I felt back to normal. Anecdotally, I feel I should note my cat (not a hallucination) wouldn't leave my side during this episode which is just cute and probably not important but anyway...
    The entire thing lasted about 7-10 minutes but it's hard to be sure. I had experienced some peripheral vision hallucinations before this, which seemed to be a side effect of Adderall as they started to happen after I started to take it. They were all like the one of my cat at my feet - black silhouettes. I pushed this incident to the back of my mind out of fear that I was going insane or had experienced some form of psychosis because of the hallucinations.
    Just this week I stumbled upon simple partial seizures when doing some research for a genetic disease project (I explored epilepsy out of curiosity). I became intrigued when it reminded me of this event because it explained quite a few of the symptoms (flashing lights, visual distortions, etc.) but the episode lasted too long for that to be the explanation and some things just weren't explained by that. I don't know what this was, and I haven't been able to find an explanation. I even explored the possibility of strokes and migraines but nothing fits. I don't want to say anything to a doctor or my parents because they'll probably send me to a psychiatrist and that is not something I'd like to do.
    Still at a loss and confused...
  • 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!!

  • Belviq (lorcaserin) and adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine)
    I have been on Adderall for more than a year and I have recently started taking Belviq. For some reason a lot of doctors worry about a serious interaction between the two, in my experience the two get along just fine. Adderall helps me stay focused, while Belviq suppresses appetite.
    During the second week of Belviq I did have very small stomach upsets, such as heartburn but it did go away about 2 days later. Other than that the medication works well and I think it is safe for anyone to try who is looking to lose weight. Belviq works on serotonin and while the exact mechanism is unknown it causes appetite suppression in most people. Belviq being one of the medications that are approved for long term use, it may be very helpful to individuals who require a longer period of time on the medication. Belviq reminds me of an antidepressant I was on called Effexor, the two produce the same sense of satisfaction overall, but mostly with food. However Effexor’s side effects (show up around week 7-12) and made it so that the medication is almost impossible to used. Belviq at this time is not giving me any side effects, I think it’s a wonderful drug, much better than the other options like Contrive and Qsyimia. However it’s not for everyone the drug may work perfectly on 80 % of the people who try it but on others it may not. I recommend that the alternatives be considered such as Contrive or Qsymia if Belviq is not found helpful. If Belviq causes you to feel unwell, sad, depressed, or feel like you have the flu—stop taking Belviq and call your doctor as these may be signs of a life threatening condition. Always take the medication as directed by your doctor, do not adjust your own dose without consulting with the doctor.
    Belviq has been a wonderful addition to my life, it’s helped me take control of my body again I feel that the medication is very good, well tolerated, and just an amazingly well designed drug overall.
  • 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
  • Adderall xr 30 mg and peripheral neuropathy
    I have been taking adderall xr 30 mg for the past five years, with some breaks. I started showing symptoms of peripheral neuropathy the second year. This year (my 5th year on adderall) has been the worst and most difficult for my peripheral neuropathy. I also suffer from major depressive disorder and HSV, and I have heard that both of them may be related to peripheral neuropathy.
  • Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
    In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.

  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • Increased dreaming and sleepwalking on neurontin. Found it affects me like clockwork. I must take it by 7pm in order to get up by 6am; otherwise I'm too woozy to drive even by 8am. Trying to make sure I took it early enough, I've taken at 6pm, but I wake up at 5am (I'm not a morning person!) like a like went off in my head! The swelling in my ankles is common with amlodipine and since I am still on the medication, it continues, but is not severe enough to give up the solution to migraines. I used to exercise on a good routine before migraines set in, but after a year before finding a solution, I lost the routine, gained 20 pounds back (I'd lost 40 over the previous couple of years), and lack motivation to get back to it. Depression has come back--I've battled it since childhood-- and returned to using desipramine after trying just about everything else. It's not as bad, but I attribute the weight gain and lack of motivation to depression. I'm currently taking 100 mg and can tell improvement, but broke down in odd crying spell at Church service yesterday for no real reason--just touched, but tears wouldn't stop. The neurontin was supposed to help with fatigue, but I tried to taper off and found my mind racing at night so went back on it; I definitely talk and walk in my sleep on it--taking 1600 mg at night.
