  • Irregular heatbeat and prilosec
    I am 65 M and a long history of Moderate hypertension. I am overweight, out of shape. 15-20 years ago when I didn't take BP medicine I had occasional PVCs, heart skips a beat.

    Since I have been on Metoprolol (beta blocker) and Cozaar my BP is normal and heartbeat normal.
    I have been on that regimen 15-20 years.

    Now or in the last weeks or 2 I notice skipped beats and irregular, fast to slow and back on occasion

    Recently It was suggested I may have sleep apnea and was definitely diagnosed with bad acid reflux by an Ear nose and throat specialist.

    I was told to go on 2 OTC Prevacid/day for 3 months. I instead, since I had them, went on Prilosec-- slightly different.

    I have been on Prilosec 2 or so weeks maybe 3.
    It clicked in my mind today that maybe there is a connection.

    I have a pretty expensive pulse oximeter (electronic finger thingy) and I can actually see flat lines and skipped beats and strength of pulse. Oxygen is 90 to 94. Also I started taking aspirin out of fear

    Anyone else?
  • A life of depression and fatigue
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.
  • Bloody semen after taking amlodipine besylate
    Was started on Amlodipine Besylate 11-13-14. Now -not quite three weeks later- I have bloody semen (Hematospermia)ranging from light pink to dark red. It was fine, and normal before. I feel it is the medication causing this.

    Prescribed to take 2 - 300 mg tablets of Clindamycin prior to dental procedure to to knee implant done a month and half before dental procedure. Took two pills one hour prior and immediate severe burning of throat, esophagous and stomach with constant nausea. Still have symptons - ie loss of voice, low grade nausea. have had multitude of tests - ie. EGD's, monometry, transesophageal (with transmitter to determine extent of now reflux) Have to eat small amounts of food at a time. Have lost 23 lbs. Affects my every day life - difficult to talk on phone, talking in groups - just limit my socialization. Could not work if I wanted to with voice. Throat is constantly sore.
  • 3 strong drugs together against neuropathic pain
    Neuropathic pain debuted when I was 24, now I'm 50. Received diagnosed with Ehler-Danlos syndrome (EDS), joint hypermobility type, when I was 35 years old. So it can take some time to get a diagnose. And as EDS-patient I do not belong to any clinic. Orthopedics says that EDS is not orthopedic, rheumatology says that EDS is not an autoimmune disease, GPs say that EDS is too difficult, and so on. Sooner or later we all end up at Psychiatry, even if we are not depressed.

    The first kind of pain I got when I was 24 came from low back, but I experienced as pelvic pain and leg pain. It was clearly a neuropathic pain, but it took years to find out. Later it was treated by a pain clinic with cortisone around the genitofemoral nerves (both sides). Since this treatment didn't result in lasting freedom from pain, the pain clinic started to give me RF (radio frequency) treatment. This made the pain disappeared after one year, and I was 80% free from it between 2002 and 2014, 12 years. The pain doctors said pain could return after 10 years.

    The other kind of neuropathic pain started 2003 with intense stomach pain. During 6 months I could hardly eat nothing due to nausea and vomiting. After this 6 months, stomach pain changed to almost unbearable pain in upper back.
    What happened 2003, and what all the doctors missed, was that the right lowest ribs slid up over the sternum. This rib dislocation is till there today, but now with a lot of cartilage formed around the rib where it is stuck in the lower end of the sternum. The dislocation is clearly visible on X-ray. This has greatly affected the thoracic spine. I have a scoliosis which I had not before 2003. And I still have severe pain in the thoracic spine.

    It was initially treated with morphine daily, and later with Durogesic (fentanyl), but this didn't help much. 2005 I was hospitalized because I had too much pain to take care of myself and my hygiene. After some months the doctors started to give me clonazepam because the muscles along the spine was in a chronic seizures. Clonazepam helped, but I could still have a lot of pain in two vertebrae in the thoracic spine. It felt as if someone drilled into the vertebrae without anesthesia. After a few months, doctors also prescribed me methadone. Then the pain disappeared almost completely. Since 2006, I have eaten clonazepam and methadone every day, and I need to sleep in an armchair to not get more pain because of moving during sleep.

    There are side effects. After 1,5 years with clonazepam and methadone I started to have panic attacks. Or rather one long panic attack which didn't stop before I got treatment with amitryptilin and pregabalin (Lyrica). These 2 medicines stopped the panic disorder completely after some hours, and the panic was then gone. Then I got side effects of these 2 medicines, amitryptilin & Lyrica, too. I gained a lot of weight (from 83 to 148 kg) and got much water (edema) in both my legs under the knees and in both feet. The feet could swallow to the double size. 2012 I stopped with amitryptilin and started to loose weight again (in Aug 2014 below 80 kg) and get less water in my legs. Today I eat as little medicines I can, but I have to take methadone, clonazepam and Lyrica every day, twice. If I try to take away one of these 3 medicines, I got pain problems at once. Lyrica is the most painful one to take away. In Sept-Dec 2013 I lowered Lyrica from 300 mg daily, to 150, then to 75 and finally 0 mg. The pain I had was extremely difficult to handle. It didn't help to take more methadone or anything else. I have checked on Internet and found that many people got pain from quitting with Lyrica. Most people start eating it again. So did I. But 2006 and 2007 it was enough to treat the pain with methadone and clonazepam, I got the Lyrica against anxiety not pain. But today I take Lyrica against pain.

    Beside weight gain and leg edema, clonazepam and Lyrica significantly affect the sexual desire. And Lyrica alone makes it almost impossible to ejaculate. All four drugs together (clonazepam, methadone, amitryptiline and Lyrica), make one forget all about sex life. You don't even miss it. When I stopped with amitryptiline and lowered Lyrica (still taking clonazepam and methadone), I could suddenly easily get erections again, feel desire, but not getting orgasms. This is quite difficult to deal with.

    The pain pattern is greatly affected, by pain and by the medicines. So is the mood. I get something which feels like heavy depression, especially if I take the medicines late that day. I should take a medicine like methadone 3 times a day, because the effects of the tablet lasts around 8 hours. But I take them every 12 hours, to have a low consumption in case doctors prescribe them too late (which happens, and then it's good to have a spouse going to the pharmacy buying them for you, because you have too much pain to go yourself).

    Since methadone is also used for treating heroine addicts, medical staff treat you with disrespect when they see that it says "methadone" in your health record. I need to show a certificate that says that I deal with chronic neuropathic pain, that I never have had problems with drug addiction, to get normal respect.

    I wanted to share this because I think I am alone in the world with these medicines in combination against neuropathic pain caused by hypermobile joints, joint dislocation and muscle spasms. After trying almost everything else, including surgery cutting nerves, methadone, clonazepam and Lyrica seems to be the only way to kill my pain. But it's a life where you always is questioned, because of the use of methadone. I can guarantee that everybody in the world should accept these medicines if they had experienced the unbearable pain I had in upper back before they started to give me clonazepam and methadone.

  • Has complained of dizziness since she has been on all her meds and has fallen several times.. Have been concerned about her dizziness and have brought it up to her Dr.'s but since all her med's can make you dizzy they don't seem to be concerned and aren't willing to change any of them. Just started hallucinating since being on the coumadin. Don't know what to do?
  • I am a 48 yr old female diagnosed with PTSD, bipolar 2, BPD, histrionic suicidal idealation and a mess!!!

    Things were going well in therapy and with my Dr. over the past 2 years on the above "cocktail" MINUS the Latuda and Lexapro.

    I have had 3 very serious suicide attempts, all prior to the Tegretol /Prozac regime.

    I do not want to change meds! Prior to the Tegretol, Klonopin , Lamictal , Prozac, Trazodone routine, I had made 3 very serious suicide attempts. The last leaving me with liver and kidney disease.

    I've recently been left with two tragic yet situational on sets. So against my desire, I agreed to omit Prozac and replace with Lexapro and add Latuda, replacing Tegretol.

    I have not been this unbalanced for YEARS! I know my triggers with suicide and believe that is the only reason I'm still alive. I HAD NOT THOUGHT ABOUT suicide for EIGHT YEARS!

    Crying all the time, don't eat or sleep for sometimes, up to four days! I'm so tired, I just cry more from frustration of not being able to sleep.

    I see my therapist tomorrow, but am on the "call" list for my Dr.

    With the holidays among us, I do not nor do I think I can make it on these meds.

    Can you PLEASE TELL ME if you know and I wasn't told, the, if any benefits will come forth? I know we are all different and I do trust my Md. Just not this time. Please, please help. Thank you.
  • I have osteoarthritis and am coeliac. I follow a gluten free diet. Recently I have developed severe stomach pain which comes on about 1 - 2 hours after eating. Ant acids and over the counter medicine such as Gaviscon don't seem to help. It goes away gradually on its own but the occasions are getting closer together.
  • I am taking only 5mg a day but as I decrease my dose to every other day, the burning and tenderness in my mouth and tongue decrease. I was told by my dentist that menopause can have a side effect of burning mouth syndrome and I have done some researching on the web about this syndrome and there isn't a known cause other than menopause. I would like to see how many women who are going through menopause art taking Lexipro/escitalopram(generic) have these symptoms. A lot of middle aged women take this and I wonder if it is actually the medication causing burning mouth and not menopause.
  • I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 about 20 years ago. I manage it well generally - I do not drink or take illegal drugs. About 12 months ago I was made redundant from a very senior position at 53. Unfortunately I was immediately head hunted for an exceptionally stressful role working for a manager who turned out to be particularly toxic. After 6 months of watching my health deteriorate - I resigned effective immediately and have been out of work now for over 6 months. This is the first time in my life I have ever been unemployed and I became very depressed - my PDoc prescribed Lexapro on top of my usual medications. It made me very "wobbly" on my feet - and I became quite clumsy - and have fallen, tripped and slipped on an indordinate number of occassions since taking the drug - I was also accutely aware that my depth perception was distorted. A week ago I had a serious fall in a coffee shop where I sat down and totally missed the stool and hit a counter edge with the back of my neck and lower cranium and landed on my back with my shoulder blades hitting the concrete floor. I was briefly unconscious but refused to take the ambulance to hospital and walked 50 metres home - took 2 x panadeine and 2 x 2mg of clonezapam and went to bed with the mother of all headaches. I slept for about 6 hours and when I awoke I just had a glass of water and repeated the dosage. I remained in bed for 4 days before the headache was gone and I felt able to get up and move around. Four days later I awoke with the most terrible pain in my left foot. Not understanding what it was I thought I had stubbed my toe and applied a topical ointment, took 2 x padadeine and went back to bed. When I woke this morning the pain in my foot was off the richter scale. I then called the GP and a friend drove me there where I walked using a walking stick (I am 53). It turns out that I had gout probably caused by extreme dehydration as a result of not eating and drinking properly while trying to sleep off the headache following the fall. I am now taking Gastrolyte in cold water and have taken anti inflammatories with food + 2 x panadeine for pain, elevated my foot and intend to raise this issue of iatrogenic illness at my consult with my PDoc next week - who never at any stage warned me about any of the above contraindications of combining the Lexapro with the other meds.
