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?
  • Any information on deaths from taking lyica and high doses of alprazolam (1 answer)
    My Mother was a healthy 89 yr old with no healt issues, she was put on anxiety medicine, which she took regularly. She was also taking Lyric and had just started her Macular degeneration shots. She was prone to bladder infections and we went to the dr. for that, labs showed high calcium, within one week I had to take her to the emergency room, within one day she was on oxygen, within three days she was in the ICU intubated and unresponsive. She remained in ICU for 4 days had renal failure and died two days later.
  • Can nuvigil (vs adderall) be used simultaneously to help wean off 60mg/day of adderall? (1 answer)
    I have been on Adderall 30mg 2x daily for years!! I've had it lowered to 20mg, I've TRIED to go months without it (when not working) however I feel I've built up a tolerance level to the point that it's not as effective as it once was. My personal life has detoured WAY past anything an ADHD medication can possibly help as far as focusing on NEEDED tasks etc. I end up feeling wrapped up in what I'm doing at the moment that my anxiety increases due to all that I haven't been able to accomplish. I take various medications for various reasons, depression, anxiety, bulimia etc., and for the most part the doses have varied based on circumstances and current need at said time of prescription.. MY FAMILY HAS A HISTORY OF HEART DISEASE, And realizing that I'm already on the highest Adderall dosage scares me (and THEN as I think about it, it makes my heart race!). I've also noticed increased muscle spasms as well as extreme and intense pressure on my jaw (TMJ). MY QUESTION IS: does anyone have any experience LOWERING their Adderall dosage AND adding Nuvigil? The research I've done to date gives me impression that it could help balance out the more extreme effects of Adderall (60mg/day) but that the nuvigil would or could potentially help with the EXTREME exhaustion I feel as Adderall wears off. Some days I just crash, some days I sleep fine and others no matter how hard I tryyyy, I just CAN'T fall asleep, therefore making the next day worse! IDEALLY I'D LIKE TO BE MED FREE, right now I need them, but am hoping maybe I can speak with my doctor to lower Adderall and add Nuvigil to help wean me off the amphetamines as well as lower dosage intake. YES, a lot of the anxiety, sleeplessness and depression are related to current circumstances in my life, however, where I am is not where I want to be or where I'm headed.. Life is a journey, and all my meds have become a part of a journey I never thought I'd find myself taking. I don't want life/meds to define me, or create a me I no longer recognize, because scarily enough that seems to be a common pattern. As I overcome each and every daily obstacle, I also don't want to be "hooked" on my meds or needing "more" to wake up/sleep/function.. I'd like to work on finding a solution towards weaning off my meds NOW, and work my way off slowly, primarily the Adderall. I'm hoping by suggesting to my doctor and showing him my research he may agree (IF ITS EVEN A LOGICAL COMBO, CLEARLY IM NOT A DOCTOR) nuvigil could help me. I've already started taking less of my anti depressants, trazadone and xanax without discussing with doc because he is always busy.. My next appt I want to go in fully prepared with a plan and an overall goal to REDUCE my Adderall dose, but overall, I'm clueless!!! I have no idea what other meds other than nuvigil "could" potentially help if at all. I could be entirely wrong, Anyone with any experience using one vs other or both simultaneously, or anyone with constructive input, PLEASE COMMENT/SHARE!!
  • Is there some kind of self help that works for stopping nightmares
    HELP! I am sick and tired (literally) of getting 5-6 nightmares per week. I sleep well but at waking time I get nightmares related to two main anxieties in my life. I cannot go off meds. Can I take them in smaller dosages, beak the dosing times during the day. I know it is the fault (mostly) of Pristiq. But what to do? I already do Yoga, bedtime relaxation routine, and a lot of healthy other stuff. HELP if you have kicked this problem.
  • Is it safe to take effexor and ibuprophen?
    Have sinus infection which I'm taking doxycycline and ibuprophen for headache. I also take Venlafaxine for GAD. Is it okay to take Advil or acetaminophen while taking venlafaxine, not at the same time??

  • Zoplicine /and /xanax taken together
    I am wondering if zopocline is compatible with Xanax. I have taken the together and had no adverse effects. Has any had this experience?
  • Sepsis hallucinations misdiagnosed
    I was admitted to the hospital at 10 p.m., with a total bowel blockage caused by scar-tissue adhesions. I had first gone to the ER at 3 a.m. that morning, but the ER doc misdiagnosed my condition as constipation. I was in extreme pain and also too weak to tell my husband when he first came home that I needed to return to the ER. By the time I returned, I became violently nauseated, and vomited repeatedly. Then a gastro-nasal tube was forced down my nose and into my stomach. I began hallucinating at approximately 5 p.m. the following day. I did not realize I was hallucinating, and thought my experiences were real. Some were quite coherent, such as believing there was a book sitting on table at home with a photo on the front showing a sculpture in white marble of a woman's hands holding the Bible, with barbed wire wrapped around her hands. I thought the sculpture had won the Nobel prize, and the book was the biography of the sculptor, whose mother had gone to extraordinary lengths to keep him safe from the Nazis. Some may actually have occurred during dreams, and were wildly improbable, but I don't recall ever going to sleep. At one point, I thought I was at a rest stop on the NJ turnpike, and saw the Nobel-winning sculptor there, working on a wood sculpture. The sculptor turned out to be the maintenance man on the hospital floor. I pulled out the naso-gastral tube three times, but was unaware that I had done so, although I do remember believing that I was buried beneath peat moss and feeling suffocated as I clawed my way out. I also thought I was at a party being given by a law firm which had sold its building to a school for gifted children, but I (also a lawyer) had been deposited there by my nurse and her boyfriend, who were supposed to have taken me to the OR. Some scenes from a book I had been reading made their way into my delusions, which were so real to me that I actually called some of the people involved later on and asked if the events had really happened. The hallucinations began before surgery and continued afterward. When I awoke from anesthesia, I thought the hospital staff was painting the doors to my upstairs bathroom, a project I'd been involved with before the blockage struck. I asked them how they knew what colors to use. They thought I was joking, and confirmed that they had gotten the colors right. Finally a neurologist was summoned, and I told her I was on the passenger ramp at La Guardia airport (instead of in a hospital in NC), and that I'd been born in Havana, Cuba (instead of Baltimore, MD.) I believed myself to be a member of the ruling party in Cuba (pre-Castro) and during an outdoor ceremony, an earthquake had struck, causing ancient monuments to come tumbling down. Later, I was bobbing in harbor waters near a huge ocean liner, with plastic bottles and other detritus floating by. The foregoing are only a small sample of the multitude of hallucinations. Occasionally, I was only an observer of astonishing events, but usually I was a participant. I recognized my husband and friends, but told them about many of these events, believing they had happened. The neurologist diagnosed clonazepam withdrawal. My other doctors later said this was unlikely, as I took clonazepam in small amounts on an erratic schedule, and was not dependent on the drug, although my prescription called for 3 mg. daily. Physician friends said my symptoms were more likely the result of sepsis. I did contract a urinary-tract infection from the catheter, and was being given antibiotics. Additionally, the nature of my underlying condition, and the delay in diagnosis and treatment, may have contributed to the sepsis. Hallucinations occur in only a very small percentage of sepsis sufferers, and in only a small percentage of those withdrawing suddenly from clonazepam. However, I do fit the profile of those who do experience hallucinations with sepsis, being female and aged 62 at the time of this description. After the three-day period, I returned to normal, although believing that my hallucinations had been real persisted for some days afterward. I recovered quickly from the surgery, although the pain persisted for a while, and I was walking easily (dragging my IV with me) through the hospital halls. This was the ONLY symptom I had. Not all the hallucinations were unpleasant -- in fact, they were highly interesting -- but they were incredibly complex. I still remember all the details, better than I remember what actually happened yesterday. Except for the urinary-tract infection, I had no other adverse effects from hospitalization -- no fever, chills, nausea, sweating, headaches, trembling or anything of that kind. The bowel blockage and the surgery were of course not fun, but in a way the hallucinations were fascinating. My own feeling, and that of the doctors who know me and my medical issues, is that my experiences were caused by sepsis, not clonazepam withdrawal, and the antibiotics I was given are probably what saved me.
  • Lyrica photosensitivity
    Spent several hours outside in partly sunny conditions on Sat. Swelling started a little on Sun. But by Monday my face was ver swollen and red with small bumps most noticeable across the cheeks, nose and area of the forehead where bangs did not cover.
    I have only been using for (6) months.
    Unknown whether to continue this drug or not. It was helping; so I am torn.
