  • I have been taking prozak for 3 months and have now been diagnosed with sinus brady cardia
    I have been taking Prozac for 3 months and have started having trouble breathing since 30 days afterwards but much worse in the last month or so. Went for a EKG and was diagnosed with sinus bradycardia.
  • Are any of you having problems with your legs and knees freezing and other symptoms of nerve damage? (1 answer)
    The only way my knees and legs get warm is when i stretch out in bed to go to sleep. Putting a heater in front of them does no good at all. alcohol works for a little while but then the freezing starts all over.
  • If tylenol/coedine is not a drug, what is it? (1 answer)
    I have taken 10/325mgs Norco for 5 plus years. It worked . Side effects were off set by the positive reaction to the drug - minimal pain, good muscular skeletal function. On August 18th of this year the tablets changed in color from yellow to white. I felt the difference immediately. Off balance, loopy, muscle fatigue. These side effects intensified, then subsided during a 4 to 6 hour period. I have read dozens of similar complaints online. Since the change was immediate, I can't help but think that something in the inactive ingredients has been changed. I wrote to Actavis which has bought Watson. They categorically deny that anything is different. My body says otherwise!
  • Does dehydration affect protime results?
    My protime has gone up to 3.1. I'm concerned about what caused it. I've been avoiding green leafy veggies, except lettuce. I generally have a salad every day. I also have a couple glasses of wine. I've been told that as long as this remains a habit it will noit affect my protime.

    But I've been very thirsty lately. I'm not diabetic, so that's not the cause. But I'm wondering if being dehydrated would affect my protime.
  • Is it safe to take norco if i have copd?
    I have been taking Vicodin 5/500 with no side effects and my Dr. changed it to Norco 7.5/350. Is it safe with my COPD condition? What should I expect? I understand that this is higher in Narcotic

  • Sleep paralysis while on medrol and norco
    On my 5th day of my dose pack about an hour after taking medrol and a norco I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. This is the 3rd dose pack in 2 months and I just switched back to norco from Ultram the same day I started the latest dose pack. I felt unusually sleepy before taking my bedtime dose, but felt awake shortly after taking it. My sleep habits have been fluctuating due to sciatic pain which is why I am prescribed this medication.
  • Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
    When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
  • The effect of magnesium citrate on coumadin
    the combination of coumadin and magnesium citrate guarantees too low INR
  • 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.

Sometimes she is lucid, other times delusional (calling for people who aren't there). Husband passed away in April. Recovering from a UTI but underlying symptoms still there.
