Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • 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
  • Why would i get copd since i never smoked?
    I have several autoimmune disorders, I was shocked to get the COPD diagnosis since I have never smoked but I had second hand smoke first 23 years of my life.
    My doctor said my Autoimmune Hepatitis and Primary Biliary Cholingitis set me up for COPD.
  • 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.
  • Is it possible to be on dep provera for a year and have shrunk over 3 inches?
    I was on the Depo Provera shot for exactly a year. When I first got on it I was almost 5'10 and I got off the shot last December, and I now measure barely 5'6. I have no understanding as to why I have lost this much height. I have been trying to figure out the reason for a year now. This shot gave me low sex drive, made me sick, gave me terrible mood swings, and i had no idea it was doing any of these things until my now husband pointed them out to me and it caused a serious strain in our relationship. It has been almost a year since I got off the shot and I am still decreasing slowly in height and haven't had a period in a couple years, never on the shot and haven't since I got off. I'm so curios (and scared) to find out why this is happening.
  • Has anyone been prescribed methotrexate for granuloma annulare?
    I have had GA for 2 years now, however it has gotten progressively worse the past 6 months. It has now spread over 80% of my body. I am seeing an Endocrinologist next week as I believe my thyroid may play a big role in this. My Regular Dr. suggested I speak to Endocrinologist about a drug called Methotrexate. Has anyone taken this for GA, and if so, can you please tell me if it is working, side effects etc?
    I am desperate for some relief!
    Thanks

You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • 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 (1 response)
    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.
  • Pokeweed skin lesions
    I have a large patch of pokeweed in my woods. It is lovely -- but treacherous for me. Mid to late summer, I'll cut a few down (with a lopper) and carry them carefully to a brush pile. Invariably, even with the greatest care, I get skin hemorrhages on arms and legs. I wear long sleeve shirt and long trousers, yet some pokeweed juice still comes through. (The only 'open' aspect of the pokeweed is the stem base, where I cut it.) It's astonishing to me that even with major precautions, I still get lesions -- they look like large bruises. It takes 2-4 weeks for them to resolve and go away. No pain, just ugly patches on my arms and legs where the juice somehow got through. Mostly, I avoid pokeweed because of this, but sometimes must cut and move it, but only a few plants.

  • Forgetting what everyday things are called several times a day. Also find I am not always typing what I intended so have to reared and sometimes retype things. Mainly just replacing a word with something else and no, this is not an autocorrect situation.

  • From this study (11 months ago):

  • For the past few months I have been craving sweets and getting up at night to eat. It's like some filter of block has been removed and I eat whatever with no discretion or moderation. Doesn't happen every night. I know I am stressed due to family deaths and recently moving. I had previously lost 60 lbs & have gained 10 back
