From this study (10 months ago):
Do not take all drugs listed at same time. Am on "pulse therapy" with antimacrobials. Do not take coq10 when on Mepron/malarone. Take Florastor probiotic 2x's a day to fight c.diff & other probiotics. Also take FiberSmart, DigestSmart, & slippery elm, marshmallow root for GI regularity. Drink at least 4 cups green tea daily. CDC confirmed lyme positive in 2010 (September), was bit in May of same year. Had psychiatric & cognitive dysfunction immediately following rash. Further testing show active infection in brain - neuro-lyme dx'd.
Throat tightness is pretty frequent. I can go 3 days feeling good, And then my throat starts to act up and that can last for a couple of days. When my throat is at its worst my left ear can turn very red and hot to the touch. It is very annoying and embarrassing. Also when its at it worst I feel out of it, almost like I'm in a cloud & can't get out, or think straight. I have gone to several doctors & they have came up with many theories, all though nothing has worked. I've had blood tests for my thyroid and those came back (within normal range). I have had an ultrasound done on my neck & they found a couple of small nodules. The docs told me that I shouldn't worry about those. I have changed my diet to see if it was food allergies, I have taken a very strong antibiotic because one of the docs thought it might have been Cellulitis. I have been doing numerous searches about all this, I found an article saying the throat & ear flushing symptoms can be from Gerd, So I started taking Omeprozole a little over a month ago. I do seem to have a couple more better days, but then the headaches start. They are some of the worst headaches I have had in a long time. I'm usually down for the count once they hit. Light sensitive, Sound sensitive, Pressure throughout my head & in the back of my neck at the base of my skull.
After starting with Vyvanse, spotting started after my 2nd period. I'm usually steady with a 28 day cycle. I'm due for my next period in a few days and am still spotting from the last one. Also having some bleeding after sex. I haven't lost weight and, if anything, Vyvanse and the Adderall, that I tried previously, caused weight gain. (Oddly enough, the Seroquel caused weight loss). I don't get any of the usual amphetamine symptoms. Similar to caffeine, it doesn't give me any energy or rapid pulse or keep my up, just a better ability to focus. Had a tubal ligation years ago so no birth control pills or hormones. Have a flare of canker sores the week before my period--not too bad this time. Dry mouth is probably due to all of the meds, had it before the Vyvanse, only slightly worse after taking the Vyvanse once in the morning. Vyvanse only lasts about two hours instead of all day. Will be talking about increasing the dosage at next visit. I suppose I could be starting menopause but it just seems weird that it would suddenly start after taking the Vyvanse after having such regular cycles.
If the spotting and bleeding after sex are caused by Vyvanse, will they go away on their own? Can I expect it to get worse? Is there anything that I can do besides stopping and taking something else?
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- By Duckie: Is there drug interaction between bactrim and garcinia cambogia
Curious about garcinia cambogia interacting with any other drugs
- By Badrenon: Do you see any relationship between insomnia and dehydration?
I cannot fall asleep. Sometimes it takes several hours (4-5). I have been taking Amitriptyline 10 mg for almost a year which helped tremendously and lately has not helped at all.
- By Danakayla: Has anyone else taken galzin with unsweetened ice tea or coffee instead of water? did you or your doctor have any issues with it?
My Galzin dosage is twice daily and I find myself forgetting about not having anything on my stomach besides water and drink some unsweetened tea just before time for my Galzin. Would the effectiveness be altered if I took the Galzin with iced tea?
