  • 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
  • Can i use a lidocaine patch for back pain if i am taking prograf for anti-rejection post lung transplant?
    Transplant was 6 years ago.
    Has suffered from PTLD on several occasions before.
    Recently hospitalized for Periodic Fever Syndrome.
    Received Interleukin 6 blocker last week and fevers have resolved, but back pain is still present
  • I am taking losartan so can i also take methimazole for my thyroid
    I found out I was allergic to Lisinipril so they put me on Losartan now that I found out that my Thyroid is over active they have put me on Methimazole will these two together cause an allergic reaction?
  • Am taking symbicort for copd, woke up with sinus discomfort, can i use fluticasone nasal spray (1 answer)
    Developing sinus infection. Can I use fluticasone nasal spray
  • My mom is 88. she takes lexapro in the evening. she wakes up hallucinating. it's starting to get to her. what should i try for her?
    My mom has been taking Lexapro for about 2 1/2 to 3 months. She was taking it in the morning and her therapist felt it was making her drowsy. I began giving it to her before bed, and I believe that is when she started waking up during the night with hallucinations. I'm not sure if they are vivid dreams that carry over when she awakens, or if she wakes up and sees visions. I do not want to change her meds, if possible. This combination of Aricept, Namenda and Lexapro have allowed her to be sharper mentally than she has in a number of years. Except for the hallucinations, it's been nothing short of amazing. Please help. Thank you

  • Living with chronic pain while battling with psychological disorders. (1 response)
    I have had back problems since 2004. I have been on pain management since 2007. A year ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Not only does fibromyalgia cause deep wide spread pain, it also makes me feel lethargic, fluish, and greatly effects my daily life. I also have some psychological conditions as well. Mostly due to a traumatic event experienced as a child.
  • Oxybutynin chloride and chest pain
    A urologist prescribed Vesicare (and Estrace cream) early in 2013 for urge incontinance. When hospitalized for cellulitis (never had it before) in May (2013), I took lots of I-V Clindamycin. The hospital had Ditropan on their formulary, and the urologist switched to it (it was cheaper)--and I continued taking Oxybutynin throughout the summer (2013).

    Before 2013, I had had rare episodes of chest pain (not proven angina) no more than once a year. While on Vesicare and Dipropan, the frequency of chest pain increased to once a month, then once a week, then twice a week, then every other day (by late summer). In July I had a treadmill-EKG (with radioisotope) in USA and my family-practice-physician said it was normal and that my chest pain is NOT heart-related. He took me off Indocin and I have since quit taking Meloxicam and aspirin (no NSAIDs now). I returned to where I live overseas in early August and continued to have chest pain with increasing frequency. In the city where I live, it is too hot in the summer, and too cold in the winter. I saw an American doctor (overseas) in mid-August and my heart rate was irregular (I've never been told THAT before). My blood pressure is usually perfect, but this time my diastolic BP was the lowest it's ever been (about 50). My EKG was said to be normal (except slow rate). My normal pulse is about 60. The doctor said the low diastolic blood pressure was my body's way of helping me "beat the heat," and she suggested I lower the dosage of Oxybutynin from 15 mg daily to 10 mg daily--at least until the summer heat abated. [She was concerned about possible synergistic effect of anti-histamine (Claritin) and anti-cholinergic (Oxybutynin).] Having no return of urologic symptoms (which were severe a few months ago), I have since lowered the dosage of Oxybutynin from 10 mg daily to 5 mg daily.

    I am 68 (had total thyroidectomy in 1978, 3 C-sections in the early 1980's, and two total knee replacement surgeries in 1998 and 2007). I had elevated anti-TPO in 2012 and a new dx of auto-immune thyroiditis early in 2013 (but 98% of my thyroid tissue was removed in 1978).
