  • Support group for people who have Atrial Fibrillation
    Are everyone's hearts as I say "behaving this evening?" Had a full day without pvcs! Always a good thing! The last afib episode was in October! For some reason it always appears every 6 months! So I'm not due until April 2015! Will try to be positive and tell myself it's not going to happen!
  • Support group for people who have Insomnia
    My insomnia was provoked by a 'medicine cocktail', prescribed medications that were contraindicated. I just had a rough experience with Serotonin Syndrome, grateful to be alive.

  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
  • Nardil side effects and my experience taking it
    I have been on many SSRI AND SNRI medications that quickly became ineffective. Was told by a doctor friend that she had been on an MAOI inhibitor for many years with good results. After going thru a horrible withdrawal detox from the SNRI I had been on and then a period of no med at all I was started on Nardil, as I needed assistance from Pfizer, the many turner in affording the medicine. My friend was on Parnate, a different brand of an MAOI.
    Within days, not weeks I felt the depression lifting. It was the most dramatic and fastest response I had ever had to any antidepressant .
    Then the fainting started, falls with resulting broken ribs, bedridden and alone I lost over25 lbs in two weeks. I was of normal weight for my height. After I was able to function again, I noticed that my legs were very weak. We cut my dosage from 3 pills daily to 2. That seemed to have stopped the faint spells. However I still had/have low blood pressure that I monitor at home. My Systolic BP was usually in the 70's and 80's. One of the lowest was shocking to me. It was 52/27.
    My son is a hospital RN and said they would never discharge a patient with Bp that low.
    He was very worried about me as I live alone. I fainted twice after climbing the 13 stairs to my bedroom. The first fall was very bad as I was unconscious and my ribs were severely injured/fractured completely around the front and back and was in terrific pain. I took to my bed and did not seek medical attn. my last ambulance ride to the hospital a mile from my house cost $1000 and since I have no income or relatives/friends to call for help, I just lay in bed I awful pain that was woes when I tried to get out of bed. Thus I lost 25 lbs of muscle, since I had very little body fat.
    It has been two months since that fall and still have one area of pain in the front left ribs and a swollen spleen. The doctor gave me no additional meds and just said to give my body more time to heal. So once again was changed to 2 pills daily instead of 3. The hypotension and fainting got better. But I am now left with very weak legs and fall easily and frequently. Guess I lost a lot of muscle mass with the weight loss. However after a lifetime of depression, Nardil works wonderfully for that which had been long-standing and severe for so many years. People noticed the change in me shortly after starting the Nardil. But I am stubborn about going off it despite all the side effects because it works so much better than any of the many others I had been put on over the years.
    I am soon going to start doing leg exercises with ankle weights, starting with light weights are first and gradually increasing the weight as I hopefully rebuild my muscles and strength.
    Also my vision has gotten blurry and I feel slightly retarded after the weeks in bed when I was breathing very shallowly due to the broken ribs and my brain was deprived of adequate oxygen.
    Prior to all this I had an IQ of 140. If they tested me now, I know I would be way down from that. Also doing lung/breathing exercises to expand my lungs so I can take in more air with each breath.
    So that is my story of Nardil, hypotension, and depression. I had to really suffer to remain on this med that worked so magically for me after so many failures. It meant that much to me to not be crippled by depression.
  • Atrial fibrilation caused by levoflacin
    Have twice used levoflaxin 500 for diverticulitis both times resulted in flutter and atrial fibrillation. I have a history of a fib and have had an ablation. I don't recommend this drug if you have a history, or are prone to it
  • Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
    Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
  • Doxylamine succinate and severe restless legs and insomnia
    Could not sleep so took 2 doxylamine gel tablets. Got very sleepy but could not actually fall asleep. So I ended up, over the next few hours, taking 3 more. More sleepiness and more restless legs, and still couldn't sleep At All. Up the entire night but couldn't really do anything cause I was so sleepy. Maddening. Do not understand at all.

  • moxohol on Nov, 18, 2014:

    I forgot: standardized grapeseed extract or "true cinnamon" (not chinese) stick will inhibit catabolism of ligaments and tendons. Both contain "oligomeric proanthocyanidins" (OPCs) which does this task. The USDA tested 5000 foodstuffs (2004) for the highest OPC content. Cinnamon (true or ceylon variety) came out tops. You also have to dump the Snickers bars for lentils or sweet potatoes ones. Ingesting simple sugars or fructose goes directly into the matrix of your collagen production & weakens the integrity of connective tissue (ask any doctor about it).
