Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can hemorrhoids me caused by taking adderall?
    I've had the Hemorrhoid banding done, it didn't work. I've used Proctozone-HC 2.5% hasn't worked.
  • If i take sprintec and propranolol what are my chances of getting pregnant

  • Is it dangerous to take nitrofurantoin if diagnosed with sarcoidosis
    UTI urinary frequency has non productive irritating cough and sarcoidosis associated with arthritis.
  • Does adderal have an effect on alzheimers? (1 answer)
    Adderall has been effective in treatment of ADHD, and I like it. It is highly effective as treatment of lack of focus, and I find that tasks (such as academic research) are much enhanced by it. However I am beginning to experience what I fear is early stages of Alzheimer's.(I am 68). I have been studying the disease, and have been doing things recommended as valuable to retard Alzheimer's development as well as to counter symptoms such as forgetfulness, and loss of mental acuity with significant success. I believe, at least in the short run, Adderall has had a positive effect in my endeavors to counter the symptoms of the disease. However, since one of the principal causes of Alzheimer's is inflammation, I wonder if Adderall causes inflammation, and if it does, is there a way to counter the inflammation?
  • Is there a published study that shows propranolol can cause shortness of breath and chest tightness?
    I am a pharmacy student in his final year on rotation at the VA Memorial Hospital. While working up a patient I noticed she has called many times complaining of "panic attacks" stating that she can't breath and has chest tightness. Over the previous two week I also noticed she has been to the ER for these same symptoms.

    Patient is a 61 year old female, with history of hypertension, dyslipidemia, migraine without aura, and while I don't see a specific diagnosis the patient current has a script for albuterol and at one time had a script for ipratropium. Patient has been a lifelone smoker who quit this past June.

    This patient was diagnosed with migraine headaches in 1986 and has been on propranolol 80mg ever since - 28 years. Interestingly, 1986 was around the time Inderal lost its patent and propranolol became generic.

    The patient served in the army from 1972-1976 during the vietnam war. She has a history of mental health issues (not sure what) and anxiety. I feel she has been "labeled" and current episodes of "panic attacks" are answered with benzodiazapines and she is sent on her way.

    During my first look into propranolol, the very first page said, "Check with your doctor immediately if you have any of the following side effects:
    1)Coughing up Mucus
    2)Shortness of Breath
    3)Tightness in the Chest"

    This caught my attention. I then started probing deeper and found an article written by Dr. Noreen Kassem titled "The Long Term Side Effects of Propranolol." In the article she wrote, "...propranolol and other beta blockers can also worsen breathing disorders, such as emphysema and asthma, because they constrict the air passageways of the lungs and can cause fluid build-up in the lungs. This can result in shortness of breath, difficulty breathing and chest tightness in patients who are on propranolol for long periods of time, or who have respiratory disorders."

    I tried to find Dr. Kassem to no avail. I wanted to know exactly where she got this information. I would like to find some primary literature on this topic but haven't had any luck. I need proof, because as of right now I'm a student being told that "she has been on this agent for 28 years, I doubt it's bothering her now." I'm not buying it and I think something is here.

    -61 year olf lifelone smoker with almost guaranteed declining lung function
    -28 year (chronic) use of propranlol (a non-selective beta blocker)
    -Possible asthmatic
    -Experiencing "shortness of breath" and "Chest tightness" that she and everyone else is called anxiety and/or panic attacks.

    I think the propranolol, while not the cause of these problems, is certainly exacerbating them. Does anyone have proof of this happening; peer reviewed articles, anything. My rotation is done in 2 weeks and I know no one will ever look into this again after I'm gone.

    ps... forgive any typos

  • Best drug ever invented for add
    1 XR 30mg capsule in the morning and 3x10's throughout the day and I am able to act as a competent lawyer, learn any kind of task, skill, focus and finish tasks until completed. Without the XR30 in the morning, I am more likely to be irritable with those around me; I wouldn't have the typical 2-3 second "delay before speaking" that most non-medicated folks have; and I would start many projects but be unable to finish any. I have been taking Adderal for over 20 years, never developed a tic or rapid heart beat, any kind of "warned symptoms," and have to say that this is unquestioningly the best drug for adult ADD ever invented. I find that I have the ability to learn math or electrical science etc., you name it. I am so grateful to have discovered it at age 30.
  • Belviq (lorcaserin) and adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine)
    I have been on Adderall for more than a year and I have recently started taking Belviq. For some reason a lot of doctors worry about a serious interaction between the two, in my experience the two get along just fine. Adderall helps me stay focused, while Belviq suppresses appetite.
    During the second week of Belviq I did have very small stomach upsets, such as heartburn but it did go away about 2 days later. Other than that the medication works well and I think it is safe for anyone to try who is looking to lose weight. Belviq works on serotonin and while the exact mechanism is unknown it causes appetite suppression in most people. Belviq being one of the medications that are approved for long term use, it may be very helpful to individuals who require a longer period of time on the medication. Belviq reminds me of an antidepressant I was on called Effexor, the two produce the same sense of satisfaction overall, but mostly with food. However Effexor’s side effects (show up around week 7-12) and made it so that the medication is almost impossible to used. Belviq at this time is not giving me any side effects, I think it’s a wonderful drug, much better than the other options like Contrive and Qsyimia. However it’s not for everyone the drug may work perfectly on 80 % of the people who try it but on others it may not. I recommend that the alternatives be considered such as Contrive or Qsymia if Belviq is not found helpful. If Belviq causes you to feel unwell, sad, depressed, or feel like you have the flu—stop taking Belviq and call your doctor as these may be signs of a life threatening condition. Always take the medication as directed by your doctor, do not adjust your own dose without consulting with the doctor.
    Belviq has been a wonderful addition to my life, it’s helped me take control of my body again I feel that the medication is very good, well tolerated, and just an amazingly well designed drug overall.
  • Adderall xr 30 mg and peripheral neuropathy
    I have been taking adderall xr 30 mg for the past five years, with some breaks. I started showing symptoms of peripheral neuropathy the second year. This year (my 5th year on adderall) has been the worst and most difficult for my peripheral neuropathy. I also suffer from major depressive disorder and HSV, and I have heard that both of them may be related to peripheral neuropathy.
  • Transition from mirtazapine to cymbalta (bipolar ii) 6 week duration taken in conjunction with seroquel, propranalol and implanon
    In early September I approached my Psychiatrist to report that I was having sleep paralysis episodes as well as insatiable appetite. I had put on about 20lb in the space of 6 months since the sleep paralysis started.

    My Psychiatrist opted to wean me off the Mirtazapine and onto Cymbalta. I have now been on 60mg of Cymbalta for about 4 weeks and completely titrated off the Mirtazapine.

    I have noted that since switching to Cymbalta that I no longer have the insatiable appetite, nor have I had any further sleep paralysis episodes (though I have had a brain MRI to rule out any physiological issues - yet to receive results).

    I have noticed that I have had mild to moderate rolling nausea with the Cymbalta and that I now have food aversions. Food does not interest me as much anymore and I find that certain foods (mostly processed snacks) are no longer palatable. I also find that I become full after much smaller meal portions.

    I have found that I can no longer drink wine or spirits because they now taste awful however I can still tolerate certain brands of beer. I also no longer enjoy drinking cola.

    I am also on the Implanon Implant. I have had this implant inserted for about 12 months and my cycles have been rather regular. Since starting the Cymbalta I have had some breakthrough bleeding yet my periods have not been as painful, though they have been heavier and longer.

    My Psychiatrist will commence titrating me off the Seroquel in about two weeks and onto Topamax as it is his belief it will be less sedating than the Seroquel and that it will hopefully help as a mood stabiliser, treat my migraines and allow me to come off the Propranolol. he also hopes that I am able to loose some of the weight gained since the sleep paralysis episodes started.

    As a side note regarding the Propranolol, I have naturally low blood pressure and I find while Propranalol is generally an effective migraine prophylactic, (I do get some breakthrough migraines) it does make my blood pressure even lower which leads to dizziness and faintness when I stand up too quickly from a recumbent position.
  • I need advise, badly ckd!! (1 response)
    The orthostatic BP started in mid April, I was only dizzy upon wakening then it would subside. I have never been a big breakfast eater so I started doing that. We were in Disney later in April and I was extremely fatigued, to the point of not wanting to walk, Disney would be the first time I passed out when getting dizzy. I of course said I had gotten too warm and was exhausted from work the previous week. The dizziness continued in the mornings & I passed out several more times. On May 1st, I passed out while putting my make-up on and hit my eye on the faucet and head on the tile floor, despite that I went to work thinking it would subside, it didn't. I went to the ER directly after work. They ran a B-met on me and my GFR was 11 and creatinine 3.95. They admitted me to a larger hospital for evaluation. While in there, they pumped me with fluids continuously, saying I had severe dehydration. My kidney function improved, my creatinine levels went back down to 1.34. After 5 days I was discharged and told to see a cardiologist and endo. The endo doc cancelled my appointment on the basis it was not his area. I had had a cortisol and ACTH testing which I guess was normal. I saw the cardiologist, who said it wasn't cardio. I had had an echocardiogram in the hospital and EKG monitoring. Cardio sent me to neurology, the PNRN did a basic neurological exam and drew blood for disease markers such as Lupus, sjorgens, hepatitis, ect. All disease markers came back negative, but my GFR was at 11 again and creatinine was 4.25, BUN 50 along with an elevated ACE level. They called me and said I sarcoidosis. I really don't have any of the primary S/S of this autoimmune disease. I don't know where to go from here, they are referring me to another neurologist at a bigger hospital. I can't live my normal life, can't walk on my feet due extreme pain and I pass out at least 2x a week, which is not good for my old body. My BP upon laying and sitting runs like 117/72, upon standing it drops to like 70/50-50/30. I am on 0.1 mg of florinef, I tried increasing it but then my legs swelled up for a gain of 23#. I talked to Mayo Clinic today and all there specialists are booked out thru December. I have to be able to work, I can't stay home any longer than September 8th! Please advise me!
