  • Is it safe to take demerol while taking tramadol hydrochloride and hydroxychloroquine (2 answers)
    I am experiencing acute, debilitating pain due to the Chikungunya virus, which has reintroduced all of the previous painful symptoms I have,ongoing and in the past, from Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, tendonitis and severe headaches. It's in its 38th day and I am basically crippled from neck to feet. Have to sleep propped up as arms throb with pain when horizontal. The only thing that has subdued the pain slightly are Oxycocet and Ibuprofen, but the pain never goes away. My hands and feet are so inflammed it's difficult to perform even the smallest tasks of personal hygiene and housekeeping. I have difficulty controlling my bladder and often don't make it to the washroom in time. Just started on Demerol today so will no longer take the Oxycocet, but am concerned of the interactions with Demerol, Hydroxychloroquine and Tramadol Hydrochloride extended release tablets that I take daily for the Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. I have dealt with a great deal of pain through the years, but I now have the pain of every serious illness I have had in my lifetime, all at the same time. I honestly didn't think a person could deal with this much pain at once. I have tried and am still taking several vitamins and herbal supplements as well as drinking tons of water and eating really well. Lots of berries, dark vegetables, apples, yogurt and minimal meat. Taking turmeric, papaya leaf, ginger, cinnamon and boswellia for the inflammation. Taking minimal wheat products, sugar and no alcohol. Also, drinking green, fennel and nettle tea daily. I know this is a lot of information, but I really need help and wonder if anyone has any suggestions! Thanking you in advance!!!
  • 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?
  • 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!!
  • Is ibuprofen safe to use if i have retinitis pigmentosa?
    I have bulging disc pain that I use Ibuprofen for. I can be pain free for weeks/months and take nothing. When I have a flair up I can take up to 8x200mg per day. I have heard this may affect my RP. Can you advise?

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • I need advise, badly ckd!! (1 response)
    The orthostatic BP started in mid April, I was only dizzy upon wakening then it would subside. I have never been a big breakfast eater so I started doing that. We were in Disney later in April and I was extremely fatigued, to the point of not wanting to walk, Disney would be the first time I passed out when getting dizzy. I of course said I had gotten too warm and was exhausted from work the previous week. The dizziness continued in the mornings & I passed out several more times. On May 1st, I passed out while putting my make-up on and hit my eye on the faucet and head on the tile floor, despite that I went to work thinking it would subside, it didn't. I went to the ER directly after work. They ran a B-met on me and my GFR was 11 and creatinine 3.95. They admitted me to a larger hospital for evaluation. While in there, they pumped me with fluids continuously, saying I had severe dehydration. My kidney function improved, my creatinine levels went back down to 1.34. After 5 days I was discharged and told to see a cardiologist and endo. The endo doc cancelled my appointment on the basis it was not his area. I had had a cortisol and ACTH testing which I guess was normal. I saw the cardiologist, who said it wasn't cardio. I had had an echocardiogram in the hospital and EKG monitoring. Cardio sent me to neurology, the PNRN did a basic neurological exam and drew blood for disease markers such as Lupus, sjorgens, hepatitis, ect. All disease markers came back negative, but my GFR was at 11 again and creatinine was 4.25, BUN 50 along with an elevated ACE level. They called me and said I sarcoidosis. I really don't have any of the primary S/S of this autoimmune disease. I don't know where to go from here, they are referring me to another neurologist at a bigger hospital. I can't live my normal life, can't walk on my feet due extreme pain and I pass out at least 2x a week, which is not good for my old body. My BP upon laying and sitting runs like 117/72, upon standing it drops to like 70/50-50/30. I am on 0.1 mg of florinef, I tried increasing it but then my legs swelled up for a gain of 23#. I talked to Mayo Clinic today and all there specialists are booked out thru December. I have to be able to work, I can't stay home any longer than September 8th! Please advise me!

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I suffer from extreme pain in my hand/wrist area after a boxer break/fracture that occurred 4 years ago.. I also have very bad pain in my sciatic nerve(l4 vertebra) that flares up at least a dozen times a month.. I have a chronic back pain on my c1 to c3 vertebra.. Feels as if it is a tingling/zapping/tickle in between the vertebra.. The pain and tickle feel as if I cannot get to them and are on the inside or otherside of spine.. I get very bad tension headaches/ migraines 1 to 3 times a week. Starting at the base of my skull and running up above my eyes.. Sometimes it's a feeling of pain/tickle on my brain sometimes it's a dull pressure sinus pain, sometimes it's a like a scorpion is stinging my brain.. Unusual symptom is when I look directly into a light bulb the pain is subsided but pressure still exists. Also have muscle tension very bad around the bothered areas of the neck and upper back between shoulder blades.. Cracking, stretching, traction, inversion table, chiropractor and massage therapist have not helped. Only thing that relieves it is wrapping a towel around my neck/head and pulling up wards taking pressure off my spine.. Then I feel normal and can breathe better and hear better until I release the towel and reality is back.. Have been in couple car accidents, skiing accidents, snowmobile accidents and worked as a mechanic for 4 years bent over cars all day.. Also for 5 years I mowed lawns for a living and road big machines with no suspension for 8 hours a day for 5 years straight... X-ray shows lots of arthritis.. Have lack of funds to get MRI.. I have tried to get pain pills from doctors but they tell me to take ibuprofen Aleve and ice it.. I couldn't take it anymore and started buying Vicodin and oxycodone from people.. I then grew a small tolerance 50 to 75 mg a day and it became a financial issue... I seen a suboxone doctor to get off opiates before I was bankrupt... Now back to 10 ibuprofen and or Aleve a day and tons of anxiety stress and high blood pressure from the pain..
