Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Could ritalin cause temporary dementia in elderly
    I had a period of dementia that lasted for the better part of a day. I was brought to the hospital because they thought I was having a stroke. I have no memory of the event until I was in the hospital. I had been prescribed Ritalin because I have become unable to concentrate as well as I once could. That started about ten years ago and it was also had a very sudden onset, after a case of the flu.
    A Psychiatrist prescribed a dosage of Methylphenidate to be taken twice a day. I had a really hectic day ahead and thought that if I took both of them at once, it would help me get through the ordeal. I am under a lot of stress and thought it may help me cope. I have since thrown them out because the condition started about an hour after I took them according to family members. I don't remember the dosage, but I think it was a lower dosage because I had just started taking them on an "as needed basis." The doctor knew that I was going to use them for that purpose. I used them twice before (at the correct dosage) when I had to concentrate on paperwork, etc. They caused irregular heartbeat and a little bit of anxiety, but they did help me concentrate. The hospital tests ruled out a stroke or TIA. My thyroid level was off and the doctor at the hospital told me to stop the thyroid medication (Armour Thyroid) until I could see my family doctor and be retested. This all happened about five days ago. I'm back to what I consider normal now. Could that episode have been caused by the Ritalin?
    Thank you.

  • What is the reaction to vivitrol and ritalin?
    25 year old client in early recovery from opioid dependence takes ritalin and seroquel and wants to add vivitrol. What are the risks and side effects?
  • Mirena causing infected ingrown toenails?
    I've had mirena for 3 months and I've already noticed regular joint stiffness even after brief periods of rest. To boot I've gotten several ingrown toenails on each foot which is very unusual because I've not changed anything in my hygiene and I've never had ingrown toenails before mirena. It's quite painful and I have at least one ingrown toenail on each foot.

    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.
  • A really bad day ritalin+orange juice
    I took Ritaline, then Orange juice. I couldn't do my exam at all...
  • Mirena and the paranoia
    Okay, I will get one thing straight, I DO love my IUD. Luckily I'm one of the ones where it doesn't fall out of me or migrate. It stays put and does it's job.

    I know there have been endless reports of symptoms. I will admit, I have a few of the more common ones, such as false pregnancy symptoms, or cysts, but recently, a new symptom has developed.

    I've had my IUD for just a little over a year now and a few months ago, I had a horrible paranoia and anxiety attack. Let me give some examples in what I mean.

    When I'm feeling "normal", I don't really care what my S.O does in his spare time because I DO trust him and I know deep down that he's faithful. Every other month, it seems that my hormones act up and I go into panic fits when bad thoughts come to mind and I misinterpret almost everything he says and think that he's now suddenly against me and I freak out.

    I know many people are probably thinking that I'm just having trust issues, I'm really not, let me explain more. He can say the same things one day, and I wouldn't care, and the week (yes, my paranoia seems to last a week or two) I'm anxious, he can say the same thing and I'll panic to the point of passing out. And it's not just him, this goes for my friends, or coworkers. I begin to think that they're all changing when in reality, it's me that's acting different. Again, it's not immature trust issues, I got bad paranoia. I couldn't eat, I couldn't focus. I only focused on the bad and made up thoughts in my head of being left by him or betrayed by my friends, I would get very dizzy and shaky with my muscles aching. My pulse would be calm for a bit and then it would shoot back up as I got panic attacks.

    Luckily my S.O is patient with me and helps me through it, but the first time this happened, it scared me beyond belief. After my paranoia stopped, I reflected on that week and thought "My God, did I seriously freak out over that??" it seems to happen a bit before my period or after.

    Let me also say that I've been on the pill for years and none of this happened. It all started around a year of having Mirena and I've looked up that paranoia is a VERY possible side effect. I will say it HAS frustrated me because every time it stirs up a paranoia episode, I feel like a child being backed into a corner with my anxiety. Again, I still know and trust my S.O and friends, but the paranoia fogs my mind and hijacks my emotions to where a simple text that usually means nothing to me, makes me panic, "Omg!! omg!! Why are they texting them?! Why did they say that to me?!! It's not normal!!". If my real personality could jump out during the episodes, I would be smacking myself silly.

    I use Mirena as a birth control, but if this keeps up, I may abandon it ASAP but I have to find another solution, so whenever my S.O is able to get a vasectomy, I'm probably getting this IUD removed. Again, it does a good job, but it's getting to the point where these horrible panic attacks aren't worth it.

    I'd like to know if anyone else has had similar paranoia or anxiety attacks when having Mirena.
  • Diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome after mirena
    After getting the Mirena put in, I got really sick. I went home and got super dizzy, nauseous, and tired. I felt so sick and could barely function. I called the doctors office and they said it couldn't be from the Mirena. She said that I must have the flu. Well, I kept it in for a little while longer. I then started losing my hair. I went back into my doctors office because they thought I was experiencing the symptoms for the Mirena going through my uterine wall. The ultra sound was fine. She reassured me that the Mirena could not be the cause of my complications. So, a week a later I went to another doctor to have the Mirena taken out.
    Never quite felt like myself and a year later I got diagnosedI with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, after a tilt table test was performed. It's weird to me that my symptoms started almost immediately after the Mirena was put in.
  • Seroquel made me weird, indifferent to everything.
    With constant anxiety. I found myself not wanting to be nice to my family, hearting them and seeing the consecuences later , rather than before. I remember wearing a wig to the nutritionist, "just because".
