Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Why would naproxen be chosen above other anti-inflammatory drugs ?
    I had Kidney stones Years ago and they were removed over 18 months slowly by monthly appointments for Lithotrypsy ( Ultrasound ) Over all this time I had a jj Stent tied off from inside my Kidney to inside my Bladder ( To keep Kidney from blocking again ) In the years since then I have sufferred intense pain in Kidney region and have ben told there are now cysts in my kidney. Occasionally these cysts burst and bleed thus blocking my urethra with clot.
  • I take klonopin and diltiazem (calcium channel blocker blood pressure medicine) and am concerned about side effects. my accupuncturist recommends the ashwagandha. anyone have any issues with this?
    I take these prescription medications but have been going to an accupuncturist since 2012. I have trouble sleeping at night without my clonazepam and take naps during the day and am having trouble losing weight. She thinks that my adrenal glands may be fatigued and told me to try something called Adrenal Response which contains Sensoril Ashwagandha. When I looked up Ashwaganda it said that it could interact with the Clonazepam or Klonopin and also with High blood pressure medication. I am a little concerned. I mentioned this to her and she said they both are metabolized by the liver and it should be ok to take it, just to take it an hour or more after I take the Clonazepam. Has anyone had any issues with interactions with their prescribed meds while taking Ashwagandha? I don't want to have to monitor my blood pressure because my blood pressure medication works good for me. Any help would be appreciated because I want to try it but I am a little scared too. Thanks, Crystal
  • Bipolar 2 since 1975. recently d/c'd lithium. looking for a treatment that will not make glaucoma condition worse (1 answer)
    I am trying to determine which medication to use now that my 40 year successful run with Lithium is over. (The kdneys say it's time to quit). However, I do not want to increase intraocular pressure by using a medication known to increase said pressure. Most importantly, I do not want to lose my livelihood or cause my family and friends unforeseen difficulty due to ineffective medications. I have little faith in the alternatives and see Depakote, Geodon, and Lamictal as poor seconds at
    best. Any suggestions???
  • Can clyndamican cause a seizure while taking depakote
    I am currently taking Depakote Extended Realease 1000mgs at bedtime with Clyndamican an antibiotic. I have been feeling dizzy, fatigue, headaches, body aches, sore throat, and pain and pressure in my chest. I would like to know if these two medications mixed together are causing me these problems, and if it can cause me a seizure.
  • My sister has been taking depakote cogentin and geodon and suffers with great memory loss inability to carry on a conversation and drops things all the time is this the effect of these drugs? (1 answer)
    Sister takes over 16 perscriptions but the ones mentioned are severe.. due to being bi-polar, and severe agoraphobia and anxiety with depression..is this now her life? Not being able to fully comprehend or remember anything? Dropping things and falling when under the full impact of this medication? I either need to get some acceptance or find answers to the effects this medicine is causing..afraid to change up her medicines but needless to say I am worried...

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • Xanax makes me brake out in hives, Desyrel made me so dizzy I couldn't stand up, Wellbutrin made me shake like crazy so they put me on Depakote; Serzone after taking it for a long period of time, caused early cataracts; Lithim caused more tremors. Once off the Lithium, no tremors. I've also stopped drinking diet soda pop--it was causing tremolrs too.
