  • 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
  • Does gabapentin cause stevens johnson syndrome?
    is gabapentin associated with drug hypersensitivity, stevens johnson syndrome, DRESS, or erythema multiofrma ?
  • I amwondering if i have myathesia gravis (1 answer)
    I am thinking that after a long bout of going nowhere with Drs. That I might have Myathesia Gravis. My Grandmother had it and I am thinking that my brother had it when he was born.He failed to thrive at first as he was unable to suck very well. He did make it though with a forced feeding of milk and bananas. He was sickly all his life though and recently died of cancer. I noticed that my eye is drooping on the left side. I have periods of extream fatigue, my left arm is tingly and I can't seem to feed myself without changing to my right hand. I have spinal stenosis and severe pain in my hip area but my right big toe seems to be tingly from time to time. I also have a swallow problem that causes me to choke or throw up the food or drink. Pills stay part way down a lot. My G.I. guy wants to strech my esophegus. I tend to eat soft foods and stay away from steak or anything chewy. I have congestive heart failure, sudden cardiac death, syncope all of which I greatfully managed to survive. I have fibromyalgia, and some nodules on my chest wall ( i forget what that is called) I have had 5 or 6 bouts with Costochrondritus which was way worse than actually having my heart stop. Costo hurts like a beech! I am frequently short of breath, exercize intolerant and have trouble holding my water.I have good dsys and bad days. Also my left hand and the base of my scalp goes all numb and tingly sometimes. There is also a terrible electric shock type feeling in my mid back area that makes me completely stop in my tracks and feel like I have been hit with a 350 lb pro football player. I have been hypokalimic after taking water pills (Ferosimide) i have taken prendisone for the Chosto and feel better immediatly, but I have mental reactions to too much Prendisone. I am very allergic to NSAID'S and pennicillian. Anyone got any ideas that the Drs have maybe not thought of... I would sure like to get better and go dance but the last time I danced I lasted 3 minutes before I had to fall into a chair.
  • How many/what percentage of older males who have had a stroke, have another while taking uloric?
    Concerned as my Rheumatologist wants me to start using Uloric40 mg and while I see that their is a relatively small incidence of stroke occurring (unless you are part of the "small" group); I have been unable to locate statistics for those previous stroke patients that are now using or have used Uloric, and had another stroke.
  • Can i take slophyllin with gabapentin
    I am currently taking gabapentin for spinal nerve pain but before I was prescribed this medication I used to take slophyllin for a persistent tickley cough. I want to know if it is safe to take them both.

  • Lamotrigine severe rash
    I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.

  • Please help if you are able.
    Background: Very Healthy, active 115 lb. 70 year old female. Worked out, lifted weights, 40 minute walk, 40 deep knee bends, 20 push ups, all daily activities until 8 months ago when became profoundly fatigued, with severe (incapacitating) muscle pain, literally overnight. Had to quit job, as too fatigued to work. Currently: No muscle pain. Debilitating fatigue persists.
    Current Meds:
    200 Tramadol daily, Chronic Severe Bursitis
    8 mgs. Prednisone daily, fatigue
    50 mcs. Synthroid daily, Hypothyroidism
    300 mgs. Gabapentin daily, Post Herpetic Neuralgia (Shingles)
    Savella Dose pack prescribed. Details below.

    Current Problem:
    Recently prescribed Savella dose pack to treat unremitting fatigue. Dx: PMR NOS. Also taking Tramadol 200 mgs. daily, 3 years for Severe Chronic Bursitis.
    After 12.5 msg Savella twice daily for three days, nothing different noted.
    Dose pack increase: 25 mgs twice daily for four days. After three days, noted moderate increase in energy. Dose pack increase to 50 mgs. twice daily. After three to four days felt increasingly worse: fatigued, weak, unsteady on my feet, heart rate 104 (typically 70-74). Fatigue much worse than before started Savella. Quit Savella.
    Question: I read Savella interacts badly with Tramadol, but how seriously for my body, and at what dose? Savella at lower dose (25 mgs twice daily,) was such a welcome therapeutic difference in fatigue symptoms. If possible, would like to restart Savella at 25 mgs twice daily. Would I notice if an interaction with Tramadol at that dose of Savella, and would it preclude taking them together? Looking forward to your report on others experiencing these interactions and symptoms.
