Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • My sister has been taking depakote cogentin and geodon and suffers with great memory loss inability to carry on a conversation and drops things all the time is this the effect of these drugs? (1 answer)
    Sister takes over 16 perscriptions but the ones mentioned are severe.. due to being bi-polar, and severe agoraphobia and anxiety with depression..is this now her life? Not being able to fully comprehend or remember anything? Dropping things and falling when under the full impact of this medication? I either need to get some acceptance or find answers to the effects this medicine is causing..afraid to change up her medicines but needless to say I am worried...
  • Has anyone with a severe chronic cough caused by thick mucus been cured?
    I have suffered from a worsening chronic cough which has never gone away in 8 years. I was allergy tested and had my sinus scanned, x-ray and examined and all seem normal. I have no known allergies. I have a very thick string white mucus which drips down my throat all the time. Eventually I gave up trying to find the cause. The allergist basically called it non allergic rhinitis. No remedy or drug has helped the cough significantly. I have tried all the natural remedies and sinus rinses. I even moved to the seaside for the salt air. No help. It is now to the point that I have a sore throat with a lump feeling all the time and my cough sounds like a dog barking. It wakes me in the night.

    Has anyone been cured of a similar cough?
  • Does anyone have primary biliary cirrhosis due to prescription medications and if so has anyone detoxed from all mecications and received a decline in their enzyme levels but some form of dementia? (1 answer)
    I was treated for simple depression 10 years ago which through additional and multiple prescription medication use as directed by my family doctor and pyschiatrist turned into to PBC, Hyertension, Hyperthyrodism, Bi-Polar. Once informed of the diagnosis Primary Biliary Cirrohis I choose to detox from all medications in hopes to stop the progression of the PBC. The results were as I thought at the time positive, my enzymnes levels went from off the charts to 50% reductions. The tree in my liver continues to die. I now have a nuerological damage, I suspect frontaltemporal degenration. No Doctor or supporting staff in the region I received treatment will attest to anything other than improved enzymne readings. I cannot have a PET Scan to confirm or disregard my suspicions as I live in a controlled/free medical care province. Yet I travelled to another province and the Doctors asked me when I was scheduled for a liver transplant and they really did not know about the congnitive impairment I was displaying at time of emergency medical attention. I could not walk or talk I believed I was having a stroke. Not so, but a defined diagnosis was not forthcoming. I was advised to go back home and ask the medical care professionals to explain the emergency care's findings. Still I was given the run around and lead to believe it was a psychiatric issue, no organs other than the brain involved. I also need to say no irregular thyroid levels at this time, but higher than normal blood sugar count. Drug free out of whack blood chemistry readings and still no further ahead. I Will admit I caved into the pain and now take long acting and advanced short term pain medications. My question is, am I the only one.
  • Side effects and drug interactions
    I Have recently been diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis. I am having a relapse. I have tremors throughout my whole body.

    i wanted to compare my medications to see if there are any related side effects or drug interactions that could be related to my tremors?
  • What are the benefits of topamax, does it work well
    I am medication sensitive and have severe side effects with Bi-polar meds. I have severe anxiety/panic disorder, hypo-thyroid, PTSD, and Bulimia when anxiety hits. I must take Zofran in order to eat and keep food down. I was on Topamax and it seemed to help with my eating disorder but caused memory lapses, so they discontinued it. I was on Effexor since 1997 and it stop working last year. I have tried Cymbalta, Tileptal, & Wellbutrin with major side effects that caused me to go to the ER. I have been on Paxil & Clonazepam for about 2 wks. My systoms are not as severe but still get panic attacks. the Saphris makes me hungry 24/7 which is not good because of my eating disorder. Does Topamax work well for migraines & prevent constant hunger, especially for sweets & carbs. I am suppose to be on high fiber, lean meat, low carb diet but my hunger for sweets & carbs is uncontrollable. Does any one have suggestions or feed back.

  • Panic after using flonase
    I was diagnosed with nasal polyps and put on Flonase (a steroid nose spray). It worked well to dry up post-nasal drip but I ended up with a bad case of panic and fear. I had overcome episodes of these nervous disorders but the Flonase brought it all back. I still suffer from panic even though I stopped the Flonase months ago. I had a bad attack on a bridge and also inside a grocery store. Personnel had to take me to the store office to calm me down. I am nearly agoraphobic now. I do go out alone but try to avoid after-dark. My life has been turned into daily dread of another attack. To think that I was more than ten years FREE of panic until I took the Flonase makes me feel so regretful that I ever took that stuff. It should be banned as there is enough evidence to do so from many people who now suffer debilitating and recurring panic.
  • Intrsoccular pressure increase associated with wellbutrin
    I was given a prescription for Wellbutrin in approximately 1998. I had has my ocular pressure checked a year prior to this and it was okay. At the time, I only needed to wear reading glasses, common in people over 45. I took the drug at the full prescribed dosage for two weeks. Immediately prior to the narrow angle glaucoma episode, my vision had actually seemed to improve. For one day, prior, I could read without reading glasses. The following night, I was watching tv, and things suddenly became foggy. It was actually as if a fog had enveloped the room. I could not see anything except to discern between light and dark areas. I had to have emergency laser surgery the next morning. I mentioned to the doctor that Iwas taking Wellbutrin to stop smoking, and asked if it could have caused the ocular pressure increase. he consulted the PDR, and said there was no mention of it causing increases in ocular pressure. One year later my primary care doctor again insisted that I stop smoking, and again I mentioned that I thought it might increase ocular pressure. She told me to take a half dose, I did, and I took it one week, at which time I again experienced another episode of narrow angle glaucoma. When I go to the doctor's office my pressure in my left eye was 72, and 68 in my right eye. I was then referred on a triage basis to another doctor. I spent the rest of the day in his office having drops administered every fifteen minutes(extremely painful). I had extensive laser surgery the next morning.It required over fifty shots from the laser machine into each eye, (also extremely painful). I had lost considerable peripheral AND CENTRAL VISION in my left eye, and a good deal in my right. As a result of having to have such extensive laser surgery I also had cataracts that began at 50% maturity. I was advised by the surgeon that I should wait to have the cataracts removed "until my vision and quality of life was so poor that I was ready to commit suicide" because having the cataracts removed would cause the pressure in my eyes to become very difficult to control, and that more than likely I would end up being black blind. I would never use Wellbutrin under any circumstances, and I always check to make sure that any new meds I may be put on don't have anything to do with an increase in ocular pressure. If they do, I refuse to take them. The surgeon said he was surprised that I didn't lose more vision than I did, and I am grateful that I didn't, and that he was a good surgen. He wrote an article concerning this case for a medical journal since he said he had been seeing a recent increase of narrow angle glaucoma.
  • Librium 25mg and wellbutrin 300mg for >1 month
    I've been taking librium twice daily, morning and night, for about 3 months now along with wellbutrin XL in the morning. I've basically had the mood of "I don't care" and a great boost in confidence.
  • 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.
  • 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.
