- Is it safe to take demerol while taking tramadol hydrochloride and hydroxychloroquine (1 answer)
I am experiencing acute, debilitating pain due to the Chikungunya virus, which has reintroduced all of the previous painful symptoms I have,ongoing and in the past, from Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, tendonitis and severe headaches. It's in its 38th day and I am basically crippled from neck to feet. Have to sleep propped up as arms throb with pain when horizontal. The only thing that has subdued the pain slightly are Oxycocet and Ibuprofen, but the pain never goes away. My hands and feet are so inflammed it's difficult to perform even the smallest tasks of personal hygiene and housekeeping. I have difficulty controlling my bladder and often don't make it to the washroom in time. Just started on Demerol today so will no longer take the Oxycocet, but am concerned of the interactions with Demerol, Hydroxychloroquine and Tramadol Hydrochloride extended release tablets that I take daily for the Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. I have dealt with a great deal of pain through the years, but I now have the pain of every serious illness I have had in my lifetime, all at the same time. I honestly didn't think a person could deal with this much pain at once. I have tried and am still taking several vitamins and herbal supplements as well as drinking tons of water and eating really well. Lots of berries, dark vegetables, apples, yogurt and minimal meat. Taking turmeric, papaya leaf, ginger, cinnamon and boswellia for the inflammation. Taking minimal wheat products, sugar and no alcohol. Also, drinking green, fennel and nettle tea daily. I know this is a lot of information, but I really need help and wonder if anyone has any suggestions! Thanking you in advance!!!
- Can u take celebrex with requip
I was told not to take these two drugs together because of something called a maoi
- I took to tablets of meloxicam for pain in shoulder maybe pinched nerve but, my question is since it is an antiflammatory is it helping for my conjestion "common cold" it seems that after taken 2 dose (1 answer)
I had radiating pain in the lower shoulder area for over a year. Since I stood home with a common cold w/ congestion I thought I would take this opportunity to treat myself to a drs visit for the ongoing pulsating pain in the shoulder.
My dr. prescribed Meloxicam for my shoulder pain. Would this prescription also help with clearing up my congestion in my lungs for my common cold. It appears that after only takeing one pill the next day my cold is clearing up.
- Has anyone been helped by taking lexapro and wellbutrin? (1 answer)
I am the mom of a 22 year old who is trying to get through college and can't seem to find the right meds for depression. She is taking Lexapro and I am wondering if adding Wellbutrin will help.
- 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...

- Intrsoccular pressure increase associated with wellbutrin
I was given a prescription for Wellbutrin in approximately 1998. I had has my ocular pressure checked a year prior to this and it was okay. At the time, I only needed to wear reading glasses, common in people over 45. I took the drug at the full prescribed dosage for two weeks. Immediately prior to the narrow angle glaucoma episode, my vision had actually seemed to improve. For one day, prior, I could read without reading glasses. The following night, I was watching tv, and things suddenly became foggy. It was actually as if a fog had enveloped the room. I could not see anything except to discern between light and dark areas. I had to have emergency laser surgery the next morning. I mentioned to the doctor that Iwas taking Wellbutrin to stop smoking, and asked if it could have caused the ocular pressure increase. he consulted the PDR, and said there was no mention of it causing increases in ocular pressure. One year later my primary care doctor again insisted that I stop smoking, and again I mentioned that I thought it might increase ocular pressure. She told me to take a half dose, I did, and I took it one week, at which time I again experienced another episode of narrow angle glaucoma. When I go to the doctor's office my pressure in my left eye was 72, and 68 in my right eye. I was then referred on a triage basis to another doctor. I spent the rest of the day in his office having drops administered every fifteen minutes(extremely painful). I had extensive laser surgery the next morning.It required over fifty shots from the laser machine into each eye, (also extremely painful). I had lost considerable peripheral AND CENTRAL VISION in my left eye, and a good deal in my right. As a result of having to have such extensive laser surgery I also had cataracts that began at 50% maturity. I was advised by the surgeon that I should wait to have the cataracts removed "until my vision and quality of life was so poor that I was ready to commit suicide" because having the cataracts removed would cause the pressure in my eyes to become very difficult to control, and that more than likely I would end up being black blind. I would never use Wellbutrin under any circumstances, and I always check to make sure that any new meds I may be put on don't have anything to do with an increase in ocular pressure. If they do, I refuse to take them. The surgeon said he was surprised that I didn't lose more vision than I did, and I am grateful that I didn't, and that he was a good surgen. He wrote an article concerning this case for a medical journal since he said he had been seeing a recent increase of narrow angle glaucoma.
- Librium 25mg and wellbutrin 300mg for >1 month
I've been taking librium twice daily, morning and night, for about 3 months now along with wellbutrin XL in the morning. I've basically had the mood of "I don't care" and a great boost in confidence.
- Melixacam and depression
For herniated disc I was prescribed meloxicam . I experienced nausea, dizziness, and overwhelming depression. By the evening it had worn off and it did nothing for my pain and perhaps even increased my aching pain. Several months later I tried it again and had the same reaction. I was not taking any other medication with it. I do not suffer from depression and I am an active upbeat person.
- Bedwetting with paxil and wellbutrin
I have been using both of these drugs and now have bedwetting issues 5 times a week on average. I would rate the bedwetting as moderate about a6/10 but my wife and I can live with this as she had made the comment " you are back to the man I married ". I started taking these due to depression about work and anxiety about work. We both think we can live with the bedwetting as no one needs to know about it
- Wellbutrin caused my trigeminal neurlagia
So I'm writing this to hopefully shed light to other users in the same position I was in. I had taken Wellbutrin for about 4 years. The pain experienced in my face was excruciatingly painful. It was just on one side of my face between my temple and upper lip. All the symptoms reflected Trigeminal Neuralgia. But even with an MRI nothing could be found. I suffered for 3 of those years with pain coming and going, not understanding what was going on. Finally one day I decided hell with Wellbutrin and just stopped taking it. It's been 6 months now and I have yet to have a single shred of pain. Coincidence? I doubt it.
