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?
  • 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.

  • A life of depression and fatigue
    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...
  • 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".
  • Temporal lobe epilepsy in concerta (1 response)
    My son is 8 years old and has ADHD with severe hyperactivity and impulsivity. He has been on meds since he was 5. We started with Foculin, switched to Daytrana patch and just recently (with the help of his Psychiatrist) decided to try Concerta. We stopped the Daytrana and began titration onto Concerta. We did three days of 18mg, 3 days of 36mg and then up to 54mg. I gave him the 54 mg of Concerta at 7:30 am and by 9:20 was having a full blown seizure. THIS WAS THE FIRST DAY OF THE 54mg. He has never had a seizure before, is on no other medication and we have no family history. I stopped the med immediately and went back to the Daytrana. He has had no other seizures at this point.
  • Living with chronic pain while battling with psychological disorders. (1 response)
    I have had back problems since 2004. I have been on pain management since 2007. A year ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Not only does fibromyalgia cause deep wide spread pain, it also makes me feel lethargic, fluish, and greatly effects my daily life. I also have some psychological conditions as well. Mostly due to a traumatic event experienced as a child.
