Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • 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

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

  • 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
    I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
  • Lamotrigine severe rash
    I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.
  • Ranexa and erectile dysfunction
    I have experienced moderate ED with taking multiple heart and NO meds. This has been manageable and acceptable. Cardiologist added Ranexa (Ranalozine) 3 weeks ago and I am now experiencing complete erectile and ejaculatory failure.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Please help if you are able.
    Background: Very Healthy, active 115 lb. 70 year old female. Worked out, lifted weights, 40 minute walk, 40 deep knee bends, 20 push ups, all daily activities until 8 months ago when became profoundly fatigued, with severe (incapacitating) muscle pain, literally overnight. Had to quit job, as too fatigued to work. Currently: No muscle pain. Debilitating fatigue persists.
    Current Meds:
    200 Tramadol daily, Chronic Severe Bursitis
    8 mgs. Prednisone daily, fatigue
    50 mcs. Synthroid daily, Hypothyroidism
    300 mgs. Gabapentin daily, Post Herpetic Neuralgia (Shingles)
    Savella Dose pack prescribed. Details below.

    Current Problem:
    Recently prescribed Savella dose pack to treat unremitting fatigue. Dx: PMR NOS. Also taking Tramadol 200 mgs. daily, 3 years for Severe Chronic Bursitis.
    After 12.5 msg Savella twice daily for three days, nothing different noted.
    Dose pack increase: 25 mgs twice daily for four days. After three days, noted moderate increase in energy. Dose pack increase to 50 mgs. twice daily. After three to four days felt increasingly worse: fatigued, weak, unsteady on my feet, heart rate 104 (typically 70-74). Fatigue much worse than before started Savella. Quit Savella.
    Question: I read Savella interacts badly with Tramadol, but how seriously for my body, and at what dose? Savella at lower dose (25 mgs twice daily,) was such a welcome therapeutic difference in fatigue symptoms. If possible, would like to restart Savella at 25 mgs twice daily. Would I notice if an interaction with Tramadol at that dose of Savella, and would it preclude taking them together? Looking forward to your report on others experiencing these interactions and symptoms.
