  • Why is restoril showing poaitive in my urin when i never took this drug
    I have been ill for 15 years, taking Methadone all the while along with Soma and Hydrocodone for break thru pain. I now include Lyrica daily.I have had 2 back surgeries, one detailing rod and cage around L4 L5 in 2007. Most recent Nov 2013 at the Laser Spine Institute for spine decompression in that same area. Diagnosed w/ Arachnoiditis 15 yrs ago when working full time and since Methadone seems to be my only safe bet to take so that I can function. 4 years on Hizentra IVG home treatment every week. Lorazapam was prescribed for panic. Tried Diazapam more than 8-9 months ago, however that drug seems to back up in my system therefore I get no immediate relief but sort of a knock out sleep 8 hours later so we went back to Lorazapam. I am now unfortunately disabled, mostly homebound and 60 yrs old. Since this past August my urin specimen has come back positive for Restoril. This past month Restoril is still positive and described as habitual use. I am staring down a discharge from my physician who I care for, respect and admire, I never ever thought this would happen. We just took another test I offered to get another different Lab test she told me to wait so I am but its killing me. I never took a sleeping other than Unisom OTC in my Entire life. Never been prescribed Restoril, no offense but would never take it on top of what I already take and Lord knows how I would react to this drug. If I am awake all night that's just the way it is and I live with it. Why is this foreign drug showing up in my system? Please help. Thank you kindly, Louise

  • I was on cephalexin for 1 month and now after stopping i realize my loss of appetite is due to the drug. can i expect my appetite to resume and is there anything i can do to bring it back and gain
    Im 85 and losing weight due to loss of appetite directly related to a one month course of cephalexin. Is there anything i can do to regain my appetite or can i expect it to return gradually??
  • Can you take cephalexin and tamiflu together?
    She steered with aches, pain, fever, congestion in lungs. Started on Donalson. The mucous was clear at the time. After three days aches persisted and very low to no fever. Took to clinic. Dr said she has,flu and started her on Tamiflu. We took her off cephalexin. Coughing persists after 6 days and mucous now yellow green.
    Should we start her back on cephalexin?
  • 2 nights i have taken mirtazapine & loratadine and i have had restless legs for 2 hours during the night. i also don't want to put on weight (1 answer)
    I am on a trial taking 10 mg of MIRTAZAPINE for Insomnia, which I have suffered from for many years. I wake every 20-40 minutes all through the night when I do finally go off to sleep. I am also taking LORATADINE to try and help the thick saliva I get in my throat. I have to spit out saliva after drinking. I often feel like I have a lump in my throat of phlegm (but it isn't). My mouth also feel slimy at intervals during the day and night. I have changed my toothpaste to see if that helps. I have only taken these tablets for 2 nights and I already have had restless legs for 2 hours both nights.

  • Caution about remeron!
    As do many folks suffering from fibromyalgia with depression I ended up seeing a psychiatrist; several actually over the years. During my clinical exams in nursing school my anxiety levels were unbearable and my doc changed my AD to Remeron. So what happened? No more anxiety - no emotions at all! My daughter declared, "You're not my mom anymore - I don't know who you are!" I was walking into walls, my eye/hand coordination went wonky, and I didn't care! The only feeling I had was hunger. I gained THIRTY POUNDS IN ONE MONTH! Not trusting my shrink anymore because prescribing this potent drug to a nursing student was beyond negligent I went to my GP for advice. She was shocked and told me she only prescribed Remeron for her endstage cancer patients, mainly to increase their appetite. I was switched to another AD and sailed through my clinical and state board exams.

    Even though we feel powerless and vulnerable when in crisis we have to garner enough energy to get all the facts and question if the medication is really the right choice!
  • Keflex linked to coughing blood?
    I was put on a week-long course of cephalexin/Keflex for an upper respiratory infection. It's been 5 days and I'm still coughing up blood. Before I started the medication I was starting to cough up a little, but now it's becoming worse. I did read that antibiotics for pneumonia or TB can cause coughing up blood, but I wasn't sure about Keflex.
  • Transition from mirtazapine to cymbalta (bipolar ii) 6 week duration taken in conjunction with seroquel, propranalol and implanon
    In early September I approached my Psychiatrist to report that I was having sleep paralysis episodes as well as insatiable appetite. I had put on about 20lb in the space of 6 months since the sleep paralysis started.

    My Psychiatrist opted to wean me off the Mirtazapine and onto Cymbalta. I have now been on 60mg of Cymbalta for about 4 weeks and completely titrated off the Mirtazapine.

    I have noted that since switching to Cymbalta that I no longer have the insatiable appetite, nor have I had any further sleep paralysis episodes (though I have had a brain MRI to rule out any physiological issues - yet to receive results).

    I have noticed that I have had mild to moderate rolling nausea with the Cymbalta and that I now have food aversions. Food does not interest me as much anymore and I find that certain foods (mostly processed snacks) are no longer palatable. I also find that I become full after much smaller meal portions.

    I have found that I can no longer drink wine or spirits because they now taste awful however I can still tolerate certain brands of beer. I also no longer enjoy drinking cola.

    I am also on the Implanon Implant. I have had this implant inserted for about 12 months and my cycles have been rather regular. Since starting the Cymbalta I have had some breakthrough bleeding yet my periods have not been as painful, though they have been heavier and longer.

    My Psychiatrist will commence titrating me off the Seroquel in about two weeks and onto Topamax as it is his belief it will be less sedating than the Seroquel and that it will hopefully help as a mood stabiliser, treat my migraines and allow me to come off the Propranolol. he also hopes that I am able to loose some of the weight gained since the sleep paralysis episodes started.

    As a side note regarding the Propranolol, I have naturally low blood pressure and I find while Propranalol is generally an effective migraine prophylactic, (I do get some breakthrough migraines) it does make my blood pressure even lower which leads to dizziness and faintness when I stand up too quickly from a recumbent position.
  • Achilles tendon tear
    At the end of my 10 day treatment time on Cephalexin 500 mg, I experience diarrhea, so I took acidophilus three times a day, and it went away. I also woke up with a Achilles ligament tear, with a bulge in the tendon, not a rupture. No changes in my daily routine, in regards to exercise, just swimming and walking.
  • Patients having false positives while on remeron
    I have had a few patients complain they are failing drug tests for Amphetamines while on remeron, and have claimed to have not used any type of Amphetamine or any (Mixed Salts). These patients are all or were on probation, parole, or under some stipulation. Iv realized most of these patients are taking another psych med. The list consists of insomnia meds such as Ambien(zolpidem), Sonata(zaleplon),Lunesta(eszopiclone). Also the Anti-Depressants Lexapro (escitalopram)and Prozac (fluoxetine). One of my patients was on Diazepam (Valium). I have switched medicines, particularly the Ambien, Lexapro, and Prozac have reversed the false negative. I prescribe many of my patients remeron. I'm a big believer in its effects on my patients moods and everyday depression. I have heard this happening before, but this was the first time I have ever had this happen to one of my own patients.(These were 5 separate patients in the span of 16 months) Of course none of these patients were criminalized based on lab results, but the issue still lies there. I know this is common for a lot of script meds to give false positives for narcotics. This is just obviously one I am putting out there. Let me know if anyone has experienced something similar.
