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?
- Any information on deaths from taking lyica and high doses of alprazolam (1 answer)
My Mother was a healthy 89 yr old with no healt issues, she was put on anxiety medicine, which she took regularly. She was also taking Lyric and had just started her Macular degeneration shots. She was prone to bladder infections and we went to the dr. for that, labs showed high calcium, within one week I had to take her to the emergency room, within one day she was on oxygen, within three days she was in the ICU intubated and unresponsive. She remained in ICU for 4 days had renal failure and died two days later.
- Can nuvigil (vs adderall) be used simultaneously to help wean off 60mg/day of adderall? (1 answer)
I have been on Adderall 30mg 2x daily for years!! I've had it lowered to 20mg, I've TRIED to go months without it (when not working) however I feel I've built up a tolerance level to the point that it's not as effective as it once was. My personal life has detoured WAY past anything an ADHD medication can possibly help as far as focusing on NEEDED tasks etc. I end up feeling wrapped up in what I'm doing at the moment that my anxiety increases due to all that I haven't been able to accomplish. I take various medications for various reasons, depression, anxiety, bulimia etc., and for the most part the doses have varied based on circumstances and current need at said time of prescription.. MY FAMILY HAS A HISTORY OF HEART DISEASE, And realizing that I'm already on the highest Adderall dosage scares me (and THEN as I think about it, it makes my heart race!). I've also noticed increased muscle spasms as well as extreme and intense pressure on my jaw (TMJ). MY QUESTION IS: does anyone have any experience LOWERING their Adderall dosage AND adding Nuvigil? The research I've done to date gives me impression that it could help balance out the more extreme effects of Adderall (60mg/day) but that the nuvigil would or could potentially help with the EXTREME exhaustion I feel as Adderall wears off. Some days I just crash, some days I sleep fine and others no matter how hard I tryyyy, I just CAN'T fall asleep, therefore making the next day worse! IDEALLY I'D LIKE TO BE MED FREE, right now I need them, but am hoping maybe I can speak with my doctor to lower Adderall and add Nuvigil to help wean me off the amphetamines as well as lower dosage intake. YES, a lot of the anxiety, sleeplessness and depression are related to current circumstances in my life, however, where I am is not where I want to be or where I'm headed.. Life is a journey, and all my meds have become a part of a journey I never thought I'd find myself taking. I don't want life/meds to define me, or create a me I no longer recognize, because scarily enough that seems to be a common pattern. As I overcome each and every daily obstacle, I also don't want to be "hooked" on my meds or needing "more" to wake up/sleep/function.. I'd like to work on finding a solution towards weaning off my meds NOW, and work my way off slowly, primarily the Adderall. I'm hoping by suggesting to my doctor and showing him my research he may agree (IF ITS EVEN A LOGICAL COMBO, CLEARLY IM NOT A DOCTOR) nuvigil could help me. I've already started taking less of my anti depressants, trazadone and xanax without discussing with doc because he is always busy.. My next appt I want to go in fully prepared with a plan and an overall goal to REDUCE my Adderall dose, but overall, I'm clueless!!! I have no idea what other meds other than nuvigil "could" potentially help if at all. I could be entirely wrong, Anyone with any experience using one vs other or both simultaneously, or anyone with constructive input, PLEASE COMMENT/SHARE!!
- Is vomiting all liquids common while taking morphine
I Recently started taking 6mg of Hydro-Morphine per day for pain. Every time i take the drug i vomit up any liquids I drink. i fell just fine without anything in my stomach but as soon as i eat or drink I instantly become nauseated and vomit everything. It is hard not to drink because the drug is making me very thirsty. So i try to drink and my body rejects it over and over again.. this goes on for hours (3-5)because i am sooo thirsty that I can not stop drinking.
- Is there some kind of self help that works for stopping nightmares
HELP! I am sick and tired (literally) of getting 5-6 nightmares per week. I sleep well but at waking time I get nightmares related to two main anxieties in my life. I cannot go off meds. Can I take them in smaller dosages, beak the dosing times during the day. I know it is the fault (mostly) of Pristiq. But what to do? I already do Yoga, bedtime relaxation routine, and a lot of healthy other stuff. HELP if you have kicked this problem.

- Xanax almost killed me!
I took xanax and went to bed, I woke up in hospital. I had been there a long time in a coma. They were about to take me off life support! All because of xanax.
- Prostatitis and prostate cancer acceleration due to anaesthetics
Caught Chlamydia in 1978. Interestingly, the partnered girl's sister worked in an aviary; and I found out later that Chlamydia originates from handling birdshit and birds are the carriers. Chlamydia was undiagnosed at the time, so it was listed under 'Non-specific urethritis'. Chlamydia wasn't named until about 8 years later. I was given tetracycline and told to stay off alcohol and sex. Yeah, really?
I was 24; highly sexed, and in night clubs and pubs most nights. I laid off the alcohol and after two weeks, I was good. The laying off sex, I understood, because of contamination of others (condoms were little used in 1978 in the singles arena); so I masturbated one night... and that caused me immense in my prostate, and pain and suffering for the rest of my life.
The ejaculation was extremely painful, and chronic prostatitis started. I was on and off medication for two years. I got light-sensitivity, which means in sunlight, I came out in burning rashes. I became allergic to tetracycline.
The message? Consultants are generally poor at communicating what not to do, and why not. Lay off sex he said. All he had to say was no sex, no masturbation; or you may suffer for the rest of your life. That would have done it.
No-one has been able to help me with this chronic prostatitis. In the early years it would come and go, but as the years have gone on, it has become more frequent, and now it is constant.
Four years ago I went in for major foot surgery, and flat-lined. I was in intensive care for 2 days, on a morphine drip for the pain.
When I awoke, I knew immediately I was suffering with my prostate. It was aching badly and I was urinating frequently. The nurses were amazed with how many 'bottles' I filled in such a short time.
For the next few months, I was in agony. I have tried every possible drug going, as well as prostate massage and the indignancy of a urethragram whilst female students were watching.
In November 2011 I went to see another consultant, who suggested a biopsy. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. After much research, I now know that my diet and lifestyle, coupled with inflammation of the prostate with prostatitis, has caused prostate cancer. Yes, there is a direct relationship between prostatitis and prostate cancer.
I am now beating it, without drugs and without surgery. I have changed my diet to a vegan diet, no sugar, very little alcohol, and a lot of supplementation.
In December 2013, I went in for more foot surgery. I was unaware about the morphine at this time, so didn't consider it being a problem. I talk to the anaesthetist, who wanted me to have an epidural (injection in the spine to numb my lower body). At no point did he talk to me about my prostate history.
In recovery, I sensed a problem as soon as the anaesthetic began to wear off. It was like my prostate and testicles wanted to explode. I knew I was going to have problems. My intuition reminded me of three years ago with the morphine, so I asked the surgeon if he knew of these complications with morphine, but he didn't.
I spoke to the head of the post-operative ward and asked her if she had any experience of post-operative patients who suffered with prostatitis after surgery, and she confirmed she had. So here was a nurse who knew of the problems, but the surgeon and anaesthetist didn't. This is typical in the health service... the lack of sharing.
Not only did I suffer with the chronic prostatitis (and still am 11 month later) I was incontinent. It took 6 months of 4-times daily legal exercises to get back control of my bladder.
For me, morphine has a dire effect on my prostate.
Bear in mind that your prostate is designed to eliminate toxins, so it is flooded with morphine. I will do my best to ensure I check for morphine in any drugs or anaesthetics in future.
My first PSA level was 18, 3 ears ago. I brought it down to 13.5, then 10.4, 10.3, 10.9, 11.3, 14.3 and after the last surgery it spiked at 17.5. As a result, I have gone back to a stricter, greener raw diet to bring it down again.
Oh, and anther tip; you need to get your vitamin D3 blood count above 200n/mols (UK measure) to have any chance of not getting prostate cancer. Mine was 32 when I was diagnosed. Today it is over 200, from supplementation of 10000 ius a day. Minimum in the UK, recommended by scientists, is 75n/mols, and it's too low. OK if you have a great immune system, but not if you want to fight prostate cancer and prostatitis.
Black African males in the Northern US states and in Europe have twice as much risk, due to lack of sunlight. Sunlight on skin promotes vitamin D3, which is essential for the immune system and production of calcium.
Black African males need more sunlight to produce the same amount of vitamin D3 as a caucasian male. Also, any male who is bald and fat has a higher risk, so a Black African, obese bald male, has an extremely high risk of prostate cancer, unless they get their immune system in order.
The main way to fight all this, is on a clean, raw vegetable diet, pure water, no alcohol, sugar, processed or refined food, no meat, no dairy, no vegetable oil, no exceptions, and some breath-taking regular exercise. Just like we did 100 years ago. Go figure! Look at chronic disease studies of 100 years ago. 85% of all disease was from infection. Today 85% is from chronic disease.
Your prostate eliminates toxins, and today, we are overloading it. Remove the toxins (and the stress and anxiety) and things will improve. It's a hard road; but with it is you want to be healthier and live longer.
- Benadryl completed suicide 50 year old

- Zoplicine /and /xanax taken together
I am wondering if zopocline is compatible with Xanax. I have taken the together and had no adverse effects. Has any had this experience?
- Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.

Possible connection with any of this or combination that may have contributed to recent Kidney Infections and Nephrolithiasis
Be advised some states are Prosecuting drivers on these medications even though I've taken them for 8 year+ I don't get messed up on these drugs nor do I abuse them. I got a DUI because I had kept prescription papers in me vehicle to prove I'm on them.
I had a hysterectomy in 2009 but do not have hot flashes any more during the day, I just have night sweats every night. I will be soaked, not enough to change clothes but very sweaty and it does not seem to come from being hot. The Morphine I take is 30mg 3x per day and these are extended release. Then I take immediate release 15mg 3x per day. I have had a physical and complete blood work. Everything came back good. I also have joint pain.
shannon on Apr, 13, 2013:
Yours still may be hormone or endocrine related as both those issues can possibly cause night sweats from what Ive read....like Ive said before....Im just a parameidc (23 yrs now) that loves to research medical issues and try to give a laymans answer wiith no big words....check into those two possibilities w your doctor.
