Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • I have been told by my gastroenterologist that i have gastroparesis, what are my treatment options, if any?
    I've had a CT scan and a Gastric Emptying study completed. My stomach is only 35% emptied after 4 hours, it should be at least 90% empty at that point. I have a colonoscopy and esophagealendoscopy scheduled for the first week of the year. What are my treatment options at this point?
  • Can i take garcinia cambogia while taking adderall, lithium, latuda
    I would like to start taking Garcinia Cambogia diet supplement colon cleansing regimen but I don't know if I can on these medications or not. Please help?
  • Can my wife who is on seizure medication lamictal take moringa oleifera?
    I also take methadone was wondering if a I could use morning a oleifera
  • Can lamictal cause false positive pcp drug screen (1 answer)
    I had a rapid urine drug screen for new employment and it shows positive for PCP. I have never taken or even seen PCP. I am so embarrassed and mortified. Needless to say my urine has been sent to a lab to see if it can rule out false positive results. I called my neurologist and my Pharmacist and both say Lamictal cannot cause false positive. So I searched internet and have found it can cause false positive PCP results? I know I have never taken PCP.
  • Latuda and back & joint pain
    I started latuda three nights ago. The first night I had terrible nightmares and cried in my sleep the whole night. The next two nights I have just had vived dreams.I and am mentally doing a lot better but now am experiencing a lot of pain in my lower back , knees and feet. How do I deal with this and will it go away?

  • A life of depression and fatigue
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.
  • Lamictal and eyes being gooey.
    While taking this medication, I experienced eye goo, sometimes stringing across my eye. Occasionally it would dry overnight and becoming crusty. I took this medication for over a year and the doctor kept prescribing me medication for conjunctivitis.

    When I finally stopped taking this medication, the eye irritation went away.
  • Lamotrigine and indigestion
    I started taking Lamotrigine about a month or two ago. I think it has alleviated my depression somewhat but it has also been causing me pretty severe gastric and intestinal problems. I wake up every morning with indigestion/ and pressure in my stomach, I also have constipation I have gone several days with very little to no movement, before I started taking Lamorigine I did not have either of these issues.
  • Severe night sweats and hot flashes with cymbalta?
    I am 24 years old and I have been having severe night sweats for about the last 2 and a half years. I have been on Cymbalta for about 4 and a half years. These night sweats are so severe that I typically wake up 2-4 times a night drenched in sweat where I have to change the sheets, get a new blanket, and change my clothes. This is usually happening to me about 4-6 times a week. I am not sure if this is related to Cymbalta or not. I have gone to my doctor and had all of the tests done, everything is normal. All of the doctors that I have gone to have been clueless as to what could be causing my night sweats. I am thinking of trying to change my Cymbalta to a different medication, however as I am sure most know, it is a pain in the butt to try and find a good antidepressant that works with your body and any other medications you may be taking. The only thing I am going to try before this is using Menopause medications vitamins. I have found a vitamin/supplement that is supposed to help with night sweats and hot flashes and does not have any hormones in it. I have only been taking it for 2 nights, so no results yet. I hope this works so I dont have to change off of Cymbalta.
  • Hit and miss sleep with dextroamphetamine
    Started drug 2 months ago and have seen an improvement in my focus. Ziprosidone for my depression causes me to get dead tired by 7 pm. Once I started taking Dextroamphetamine I started having insomnia 2 times a week. I think I would rather sleep early than stay up all night and then try and stay awake at work. So many drugs and even more side effects. Also Trazadone is no help for getting me to sleep. The only good side affect I have seen is I am down 26 pounds.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I am a 48 yr old female diagnosed with PTSD, bipolar 2, BPD, histrionic suicidal idealation and a mess!!!

    Things were going well in therapy and with my Dr. over the past 2 years on the above "cocktail" MINUS the Latuda and Lexapro.

    I have had 3 very serious suicide attempts, all prior to the Tegretol /Prozac regime.

    I do not want to change meds! Prior to the Tegretol, Klonopin , Lamictal , Prozac, Trazodone routine, I had made 3 very serious suicide attempts. The last leaving me with liver and kidney disease.

    I've recently been left with two tragic yet situational on sets. So against my desire, I agreed to omit Prozac and replace with Lexapro and add Latuda, replacing Tegretol.

    I have not been this unbalanced for YEARS! I know my triggers with suicide and believe that is the only reason I'm still alive. I HAD NOT THOUGHT ABOUT suicide for EIGHT YEARS!

    Crying all the time, don't eat or sleep for sometimes, up to four days! I'm so tired, I just cry more from frustration of not being able to sleep.

    I see my therapist tomorrow, but am on the "call" list for my Dr.

    With the holidays among us, I do not nor do I think I can make it on these meds.

    Can you PLEASE TELL ME if you know and I wasn't told, the, if any benefits will come forth? I know we are all different and I do trust my Md. Just not this time. Please, please help. Thank you.
