  • Any experience or studies of vyvance (lisdexamfetamine) causing vit b12 absorbsion issues and ultimately deficiency? (2 answers)

  • Diphenhydramine and mental acuity
    For at least 10 years, I have taken diphenhydramine 50 mg. at bedtime for insomnia and allergies. The results have been that I sleep well with no hangover or any cognitive impairment. If I experience vertigo from allergies, I may take an additional 50 mg. but never exceeding 100 mg in a 24 hour period.

    After reading the report regarding an Alzheimer's study finding that after taking as little as 4mg diphenhydramine daily for more than 3 years, dementia rates were high.

    I stopped the diphenhydramine one night. I experienced symptoms of deep brain pulsating pain and severe insomnia. After 4 hours, I took 50 mg diphenhydramine and slept very well. The next night I took 37.5 mg. diphenhydramine, slept very well. However, some of my tasks require layers of mental challenges in which I became slower.

    My question is how did the study recipients obtain 4 mg doses of diphenhydramine when the standard over-the-counter (OTC) availability in tablets is 25 mg? How reliable is the information submitted from the study subjects? What manufacturer's diphendramine was used, or were there several?

    I felt sharper mentally when on 50 mg daily than so far on 37.5 mg.
  • Dymista gave me insomnia and nightmares
    I have been taking Dymista for two weeks and it is fantastic for clearing up allergy symptoms. However, for the past two weeks I have had an extremely hard time trying to fall asleep; it is like I have insomnia. When I do fall asleep which usually last around an hour or so either day or night I have very vivid nightmares
  • 13yr old autistic daughter diagnosed with cerebral palsy after taking seroquel
    My beautiful 13yrold daughter who was diagnosed with Autism at 2 yrs old, never suffered from ANY physical disabilities prior to being put on a very large dose of SEROQUEL at age 11. Within less than a year, she went from running and jumping on her trampoline to being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy!! She now has to be cared for in a facility, relying on being pushed in a wheelchair for outside transfer, and wearing a foam helmet to protect her from injury during her daily falls. Two separate neurologists label her with cerebral palsy and will not go any further in diagnosis. Genetic studies show no explanation, and the children's hospital are the only one willing to indicate the possibility of the medications she was put on by a mental health facility as the possible cause. I have long avoided placing her on heavy medications for the 11 years that she was in my care, and this did not occur until she went into her father's care temporarily while I had major surgery. Over a period of6-8 months, she began to develop a limp and became so unsteady she could not walk 5 feet without bumping into things and falling. When I cared for her again and saw the medications she had been placed on, I am not ashamed to say I not only researched them, but took one of the Seroquel to see how it affected ME! I was over 80 pounds heavier than my daughter at the time, yet found myself completely incapacitated for almost 48hrs!! I immediately took her to the children's hospital in our area where she was hospitalized for over a week and treated by a TEAM of physicians ranging from Orthopedics to Neurologists. From CT Scans, complete blood work, MRIS, etc., nothing could explain any cause for her issues except "the possibility of the medications". They began to lower her Seroquel dose then sent her to the state mental hospital 4 hours away where she stayed for 2 months while undergoing the genetic studies and another neurologist who continued to lower the Seroquel and completely take her off it. My beautiful girl is now left with a lifetime physical disability.
  • Took buspirone once and got a blister
    Took Buspirone 5mg once and a few minutes later felt a bubble on my lip. The next morning I check and sure enough it's a blister on my top lip. Called a nurse and she said I had an allergic reaction.
  • Lyrica is giving me nightmares
    I have fibromyalgia and a history of being allergic to or very sensitive to medications
    But Lyrica is really causing me some nightmares,sleepless nights, weight gain, headaches. I love that in the beginning I was able to get relief from fibromyalgia . It only made me really dizzy and disoriented on it. Now with theses symptoms I will definitely have to give it up. I can't seem to get any relief from this pain. I am so allergic to meds this is frustrating and miserable that meds make it worse.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I've previously been on both Adderall and Phentermine, at different times. I experienced very drastic and noticeable effectiveness. The phentermine helped with weight loss significantly and the Adderall greatly increased my energy levels, self-confidence, elevated mood, and higher concentration and brain activity. I was not on any other medications at the time, though I did need to take melatonin occasionally to help me sleep. Now, I had not been on Adderall or phentermine for about a year, but I was put on Adderall again several months ago. This was about a month after my brother died, so obviously I was experiencing (and still am) grief and depression. I was put on 40mg (twice as much as I used to be on) of Adderall in addition to seroquel XR and Lamictal. I felt like a slug all the time, I felt physically hungrier, and lethargic and apathetic. The adderall did nothing to help these symptoms. I am now on 60mg of Adderall and 37.5mg of Phentermine for weight loss and neither have shown any affectiveness, mentally or physically. My appetite is just as bad, and my brain isn't functioning fast at all. None of the affects of adderall I used to experiences, like increased energy levels, elevated mood, decreased appetite, increased brain activity, and increased self-confidence are present now, and I'm on more adderall than I was on before AND phentermine at the same time!! What's going on?? Both my ADD and weight gain are causing me to become increasingly self-conscious and depressed. Also, it doesn't help that my ridiculous amount of mood stabilizers make me apathetic and detached. I'm under 18 so I'm required to take the medications prescribed to me, but I don't know what to do or why the stimulants aren't effective anymore. HELP!!

    Just saying but u must have been taking vyvanse instead of adderall because the highest mg of adderall is 30mg. If u were taking 40mg and 60mg u must have been taking vyvanse which goes all the way up to 100mg
