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?
  • Does carbamazepine cause obesity?? please reply (1 answer)
    I am taking ZEN 100(Carbamazepine tablets) on advice of my doctor from JAN 2013, for my SEIZURES. Lately, my weight has increased by quite kilos, despite my diet remaining same.
    I want to confirm does prolonged use of this drug cause obesity.

    PLEASE REPLY IF EXPERIENCED THE SAME SIDE-EFFECTS OR KNOW ABOUT IT.

    Thanks
  • Has anything helped with muscle weakness/pain caused by carbamazepine? or any remedies?
    I have partial seizures that affects my right side. It's caused by having a brain tumor on the left side when I was younger that was removed. I'm taking 600mg of Carbamazepine a day.

    I have muscle weakness and pain on my right arm and leg a lot. There are times when I can't even pick up a water bottle with my right hand without feeling like I'm going to drop it. The pain almost feels like growing pains but I stopped growing 4 years ago.

    Has anyone had this and figured out things that helped like pain relievers, heat, cold, anything? Right now I just rest but it'd be nice to have something to actually help with the pain.
  • I stopped suffering from psoriasis when i started with epilepsy at the age of 32. could there be a reason for this?
    I would just like to hear from anyone who has both epilepsy and psoriasis to see if they have stopped with psoriasis after the epilepsy was triggered. My epilepsy was triggered at the age of 32 after taking amphetamine. I used to have outbreaks of psoriasis every 7 years but this stopped when the epilepsy was triggered. I wonder if there is a reason for this.
  • Could this drug cause periodontal bone loss, bone loss around teeth (4 answers)
    Do you suffer from periodontal bone loss or periodontal disease, or bone loss around teeth after taking this drug? Are your sodium levels low after taking this drug? I am a dentist and keep my teeth plaque free, but have had periodontal bone loss for which, I believe, must be drug related.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I have chronic lower backpain and am on oxycodone immediate release 30mg prescription. I take 10 a day which is 300mg (they didn't have Immediate Release on the drop down menu so I used oxycontin on the form which is time released... as close as I could get for accuracy. Then I have 3 kids and a husband whom I love dearly however the past 3 months I have been severely depressed so my dr. put me on prozac and tegretol. I take zofran which is anti nausea probably 3 times a week for nausea due to the meds. 2 days ago my husband announced he was contemplating leaving me (after 6 years married, 7 years together) so I really plumeted depression wise... dr. gave me the zyprexa for "extreme depression" whatever that means... it just made me sleep 15 hrs. I then got up this morning had a pretty productive good day, decided to go out with a girlfriend for a movie cause i needed to get out. after the movie we stopped by her girlfriends house where everyone was doing coke. I haven't done coke since I was 20 years old 5 years ago!! With my husband no less! So I stay and pitch and do some coke (to clear my head... yah right) 1 gram later I go home with major nausea and migraine... so not thinking I take 8mg of zofran for nausea 800mg ibprofen 2 excedrin migraine 1000mg tylenol (this may seem like a lot to most however I am on high powered pain meds everyday for my damn back so if they don't kill a headache I have to take I high dose of tylenol ibprofen and caffeine to calm it down...it takes more than the average person. then I start thinking okay a 1 gram of coke over 5hrs. all my normal meds for the day time then i take all this crap to kick my migraine and nausea from the coke and now what the fuck is going to happen with all this in my system... NOT SMART!!!

    Wow - I hope that you survived your night!!!! My only recommendation is to wean yourself off of all the pills that your Doc has you on, and really try to get off the OxyContin, as this will just slowly destroy you. Focus on reducing your inflammation naturally with Ginger tea, vitamins and other inflammation-reducing herbals. Go see a physiotherapist and look for either Prolotherapy or IMS. Is your back pain from an accident?

    Cheers,

    Jared

    Get help immediately! If not for you, for those 3 precious children that need their Momma. Do whatever it takes. You are far too young to be in the situation that you are in. There are too many medical interventions available for back pain rather than be doomed to 10 Oxycodone a day. You have a much more severe problem than your back. It's in your brain and it's called addiction. This is a terminal illness and it will kill you if you don't get it under control.I should know. I have been there.It is by the Grace of God that someone hasn't just "found you", if you know what I mean. Find a good doctor that is "Suboxone prescribing qualified". Make the appointment and get into treatment.
