Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Has anyone had surgery for an av fistula ofthethorasic spine
    for the past 8 months I have had severe nerve pain and numbness after surgery for an AV fistula ib my thorasic spine
  • Can gabapentin be taken with theanine? (1 answer)
    Our adult son is 34 and his medical doctor is using Gabapentin for behaviors and anxiety. We (my husband and I) use Theanine for anxiety for ourselves. Our son is showing signs of anxiety and he is nonverbal. His behaviors go up when he is anxious and he also stops eating. We want to use the theanine with the gabapentin but his medical Dr. thinks its bologny. We certainly dont want to give him the theanine if there is an interaction with the gabapentin. We have talked with our pharmacist and he doesnt see that there could be a problem Our sons dr. had never even heard of "Theanine". Anyone have the answer to combining the two?
  • Is it safe to take biotin and humira to gether?
    I would like to add biotin to my daily med. schedule. I want to make sure there are no interactions
  • What are interactions of gabapentin and statins (1 answer)
    I would like to know if there are any known interactions between gabapentin and a statin drug.
  • 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

  • Vasculitis caused by gabapentin
    i also take but didnt have such symptom till recent; however, such could be due to gabapentin 1800 mg/d.
    also was suing at the time topamac 100 mg amitriptyline 50 mg, metoprolol 25 mg HCTZ 25 mg,Proventil inh etc.,OTC Tylenol aspirin and vitamins. Been on gabapentin about 15 months but on other meds more than 5 yrs. on and off.

    Since more than 10 weeks I developed 1 to 2 inches across reddish areas on feet and ankles not raised , and slightly dotted;total about 4 or 5 on each foot and ankle.,that dont itch or ache, dont seem to grow or subside w any cream like HC. showed to doctor,said to observe.Basic screening tests were neg,but perhaps needs more testing. We discussed possiblility of bites from various things but I doubt that.
  • Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
    It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.

    Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.

    This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
  • Neurotin as an anabolic
    Takave been taking anabolic steroids for about 6 weeks my games were linear unlock the entire time. When I started taking Neurontin with anabolic steroids my anabolism was increased by at least 30%. There was no change in diet or any other variables as far as I can tell. The only variable was the neurontin.it just so happens did my workout partner is taking Neurontin and getting the some effect. I know for a fact it affects the digestive system.
  • Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
