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 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.

More questions for: Norco, Xanax

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

  • Xanax xr lives up to it's claim.
    I get annoyed reading so many negative reviews of Xanax XR. I assume those come from thrill-seeking drug addicts. Therapeutically I find Xanax XR to be a genius idea - and it works like it should. Xanax was aleady long-established as (probably the most) effective anti-anxiety & anti-panic agent, that also does wonders for things like 'social phobia'. But the problem was always that Xanax wore off too quickly, leaving the patient in a state of wanting more. I know, I was one of those patients. Then came along Xanax XR: meant to deliver the same drug over an extended period of time. It does that just fine, I don't need to carry around a bottle of pills to have my next dose at-the-ready. Xanax XR does the job for a solid 8-12 hours (I give a range because I never actually counted the hours.). The best part is that I feel the first beneficial effect only 30 minutes after taking Xanax XR - I don't have to wait 2 hours. It's forumlated well. Sorry that drug junkies can't get a 'rush' from it. But it is Xanax and it does last all day.
  • 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.
  • Benadryl completed suicide 50 year old
    My mother comitted suicide by taking a bottle of Benadryl. She also had been drinking, she had taken xanax and drank beer, she also took 300 Benadryl pills and started having seizures and went to the hospital was brain dead and her heart stopped the next morning.
  • 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?
  • Heavy sweating during sleep
    Pain killers like Tylenol 3, vicodin 20 years, Valium and Soma 12 years. Sweat heavy during sleep.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I take 20 milligrams of Abilify with 20 mg. of celexa at night with Alprazolam throughout the day and at night to help me sleep. Since taking abilify over the past 10 years I have gained weight that I can't lose, I am always buying lottery tickets, and want to go to gamble obsessively. I also have compulsive behavior such as compulsive spending. I can leave my house with $100.00 to go get one thing and come back with no money and a bunch of stuff I didn't plan to get.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
    I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
    The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.
