From this study (3 months ago):
I have an non-typical pulmonary stenosis, MPA aneurysm directly above that valve. The left ventricle was also enlarged due to the stress of my third & final pregnancy put on my heart.
On March 1st (this year) I went to the ER as none of my asthma treatment weren't working. After several tests a pulmonary embolism was found in my bronchial trunk. It was successfully dissolved with heparin in 48 hours. The PE put more stress on the left ventricle. As a result I was sent home to be on bed rest as I only had trouble breathing while mobile, under stress or attempting to carry on a conversation. At rest, my heart rate & oxygen meter would go back to normal.
That is no longer the case. When I went in to my Asthma & allergy doctor's office to do my PFT, it was worse than it has ever been, including before I quit smoking 5yrs. ago. This started at the same time I began taking Coumadin & became worse as I reached therapeutic INR levels.
Never a clot but newly prescribed medicine Pristiq and I have Factor V, Type 1 Diabetes, high cholesterol and use a fentanyl patch and these were all warnings on Pristiq. I take wellbutrin 300 and Zoloft and Prozac didn't work.
I see an endocrinologist, neurologist, family practice, pain management. My depression is because of pain. I've only been to one pain doctor and I must have a tolerance to opiates. I've tried oxycodone 15mg x many, dilaudid 8 mg x many, morphine 30 x many, Opana Er x many. Not all at once and always take prescribed amount but it never works. Been prescribed the same garbage for 6 years and have had pain epidurals and radio frequency ablations. Was pretty exited about laser surgery and then I was told they don't take my insurance when I have a BCBS PPO
I'm afraid doctors like me psychiatrist don't look atoll my medical history before prescribing things like Pristiq.
I'm Agoraphobic and don't leave my house so unable to attend GP or local hospital to have this investigated.
I'm morbidly obese - due to combination of drugs listed above and which have known side effects of weight gain (not due to diet) I don't eat fried food or red meat and eat plenty of fresh fruit.
I'm panic-stricken this might be Paget's disease of the breast. I've been trying to research via the Internet but my symptoms don't seem to fit anything - not Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Eczema, Rash, but has similarities to Paget's. I can't find any sign of a lump in either breast but don't know what this redness and 'spreading' of it is on my left nipple and areola.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- What are possible drug interactions?
Are there any known adverse drug interactions and/or side effects for the prescription drugs I am taking?
- What are the best meds to take to fix insomnia, anxiety,depression
What medications will work well I need my brain to stop at night. And stay asleep. I have anxiety Little grumpy at times and things bother me a lot. Easily nervious and worry about everything. Crying a lot I notice.

- Valium: the most reliable medicine in times of panic and pain.
My doctor allows me to keep a bottle of Valium around, in case of 'emergency'. It's made a huge & pleasant difference in my life. I'm a professional working person who tends to get too wound-up sometimes. I don't take the Valium regularly, but I've taken it in scary situations when I didn't know wha ...
