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
    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!!
  • 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.
  • Can i take my ativan if i'm taking phenteremine? (1 answer)
    I just started taking phenteremine and I can't sleep. I take it at 6 am
    Am I able to take an Ativan at bed time?

  • 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.
  • Benadryl completed suicide 50 year old
    My mother comitted suicide by taking a bottle of Benadryl. She also had been drinking, she had taken xanax and drank beer, she also took 300 Benadryl pills and started having seizures and went to the hospital was brain dead and her heart stopped the next morning.
  • Lorazepam nearly killed me during cancer treatment
    Day 31 of cold turkey and I want to die. It is a roller coaster from body tics and sweats to rage and crying in one day. I felt so good the 4h day of c/t. It was like before my cancer diagnosis. My bowels are better off Lorazepam. I threw up during bowel movements from the pain. Off Lorazepam first normal bowel movement in over 2 years. Stomach so damaged by Lorazepam that I have absolutely no appetite. I force myself to eat. Neuropathy in hands nearly gone. Feet are better but slower. Lymphedema that appeared after one year on Lorazepam is now gone. I have full range of motion.
  • Zoplicine /and /xanax taken together
    I am wondering if zopocline is compatible with Xanax. I have taken the together and had no adverse effects. Has any had this experience?
  • Lyrica photosensitivity
    Spent several hours outside in partly sunny conditions on Sat. Swelling started a little on Sun. But by Monday my face was ver swollen and red with small bumps most noticeable across the cheeks, nose and area of the forehead where bangs did not cover.
    I have only been using for (6) months.
    Unknown whether to continue this drug or not. It was helping; so I am torn.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Concerned could have Serotonin Syndrome....not sure how long body takes to adjust to change in meds. From 100mcg.Synthroid to 75mcg then 5mcg
    Cytomel added...have been on Pristiq (100mg for 5 years with one adjustment and little to no adverse side effects)...been on Synthroid for 44 years. Could the Cytomel be adversely interacting with the Pristiq??? Symptoms remind me of issues I have had with my Hashitoxicosis...please advise.

  • Episodes can last 36-48 hours with medications. Without the meds the episode must run its course which can be up the 30-45 days;

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • In the past 3 months I've had numerous medication changes. I never had problems with blood pressure, cholesterol or sugar. I go for blood tests every three months to see if my Synthroid needs to be adjusted and the lab does a battery of other tests also.
    Last year my blood sugar was 84 and cholesterol 181.
    In April, my blood sugar was 123 and cholesterol 215.
    Today, the results of my labs were blood sugar 124 and cholesterol 252!! I've been eating healthier than I ever have, salads, fresh veggies, fresh fruit, no white foods, low carbs, oats and other whole grains. I have not been eating sugar, I don't eat beef or pork, I've been eating salmon, and chicken or turkey if I eat meat with my meals, most of the time I don't, I get protein from beans or quinoa.
    I walk for exercise and clean houses. I don't drink or smoke. I am totally clueless as to why the test results were so bad when I was doing everything right. I also take herbs. Cinnamon, Bitter Melon and Fenugreek to lower sugar, also drinking water that Okra has been soaking in. For cholesterol, I take Cholestoff, Krill Oil (highest dosage,) and Red Yeast Rice.
