  • 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
  • What are the effects of multiple drugs on chromagranin a levels?
    I have been diagnosed with carcinoid cancer and had a very small tumor removed. My CgA levels have been, since my surgery, below 200. Recently, the number jumped to 2000. My doctor and I are trying to find out if any of the many drugs I take, in addition to my diabetes medications and insulin, can adversely affect my CgA levels.
  • Is it necessary to take hydrochloride with other blood pressure medication and is there a better alternative to taking channel blockers?
    I have been taking BP meds for a long time but I do best with beta blockers and channel blockers is there an alternative?
  • How do you overcome difficulty swallowing. with avapro
    I have been taking AVAPRO for about five years. There is a lot of difficulty swallowing, I just switch amlodipne and have the same problem.

    Any ideas what would be an alternative to these 2 drugs or what you can do to relief this.

    I have read that taking daily aspirin and vitamin C can cause this. Not sure how true.

    Any help would be great.

    Thank you
