Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Timing of taking wellbutrin xl 300 with diovan 80
    I take levoxyl when waking up. After eating breakfast usually I take wellbutrin, diovan, and vitamin d together. If taking adderall, I would take at this time. Sometimes red yeast rice in morning, sometimes later in the day. Estradiol is taken before bed. Is it OK to take wellbutrin and diovan together or should they be spaced separately in the day?
  • Does adderall cause anyone to smoke more and crave sweets like crazy! it has to be the adderall because this was not an issue for me until i started taking adderoll.
    Just started Adderall. 30mg twice daily. Working very well. Has made a huge difference in being able to concentrate to get things done. Love being on it but I am having severe insomnia. Since taking it I've had very little sleep. And the odd craving for sweets "when I can eat" along with the increased smoking. "Maybe I like it more than it likes me"! Anyone experiencing the odd cravings and smoking? I never craved sweets or smoked this much. Someone mentioned asking my Dr. to add Wellbutrin to control the smoking, migraines, depression and ADD. I heard Wellbutrin causes horrible mood disorder. Not sure about mixing Adderall and Wellbutrin or adding another major drug when I just started Adderall. Any advice for anything would be so helpful.

  • Belviq (lorcaserin) and adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine)
    I have been on Adderall for more than a year and I have recently started taking Belviq. For some reason a lot of doctors worry about a serious interaction between the two, in my experience the two get along just fine. Adderall helps me stay focused, while Belviq suppresses appetite.
    During the second week of Belviq I did have very small stomach upsets, such as heartburn but it did go away about 2 days later. Other than that the medication works well and I think it is safe for anyone to try who is looking to lose weight. Belviq works on serotonin and while the exact mechanism is unknown it causes appetite suppression in most people. Belviq being one of the medications that are approved for long term use, it may be very helpful to individuals who require a longer period of time on the medication. Belviq reminds me of an antidepressant I was on called Effexor, the two produce the same sense of satisfaction overall, but mostly with food. However Effexor’s side effects (show up around week 7-12) and made it so that the medication is almost impossible to used. Belviq at this time is not giving me any side effects, I think it’s a wonderful drug, much better than the other options like Contrive and Qsyimia. However it’s not for everyone the drug may work perfectly on 80 % of the people who try it but on others it may not. I recommend that the alternatives be considered such as Contrive or Qsymia if Belviq is not found helpful. If Belviq causes you to feel unwell, sad, depressed, or feel like you have the flu—stop taking Belviq and call your doctor as these may be signs of a life threatening condition. Always take the medication as directed by your doctor, do not adjust your own dose without consulting with the doctor.
    Belviq has been a wonderful addition to my life, it’s helped me take control of my body again I feel that the medication is very good, well tolerated, and just an amazingly well designed drug overall.
  • Adderall xr 30 mg and peripheral neuropathy
    I have been taking adderall xr 30 mg for the past five years, with some breaks. I started showing symptoms of peripheral neuropathy the second year. This year (my 5th year on adderall) has been the worst and most difficult for my peripheral neuropathy. I also suffer from major depressive disorder and HSV, and I have heard that both of them may be related to peripheral neuropathy.
  • High blood pressure - find the right medication (2 responses)
    I was going through the menopause with all the usual drama when I started feeling awful. Doc said that my blood pressure was through the roof and prescribed Lisinopril. This gave me technicolour dreams and a runny nose, so he switched me to Losartan. This made me soooo tired that I didn't want to get up. So then I tried Amlopidine. Fantastic! I haven't felt this well since I was on my teens. My message is ... don't put up with side effects. Change your drug until you find the one that works for you.
  • Synthroid diuretic effect
    When I take my one pill I wait one hr. before eating and befoe time is up I'm in the bathroom voiding. The amount is large.
  • I need advise, badly ckd!! (1 response)
    The orthostatic BP started in mid April, I was only dizzy upon wakening then it would subside. I have never been a big breakfast eater so I started doing that. We were in Disney later in April and I was extremely fatigued, to the point of not wanting to walk, Disney would be the first time I passed out when getting dizzy. I of course said I had gotten too warm and was exhausted from work the previous week. The dizziness continued in the mornings & I passed out several more times. On May 1st, I passed out while putting my make-up on and hit my eye on the faucet and head on the tile floor, despite that I went to work thinking it would subside, it didn't. I went to the ER directly after work. They ran a B-met on me and my GFR was 11 and creatinine 3.95. They admitted me to a larger hospital for evaluation. While in there, they pumped me with fluids continuously, saying I had severe dehydration. My kidney function improved, my creatinine levels went back down to 1.34. After 5 days I was discharged and told to see a cardiologist and endo. The endo doc cancelled my appointment on the basis it was not his area. I had had a cortisol and ACTH testing which I guess was normal. I saw the cardiologist, who said it wasn't cardio. I had had an echocardiogram in the hospital and EKG monitoring. Cardio sent me to neurology, the PNRN did a basic neurological exam and drew blood for disease markers such as Lupus, sjorgens, hepatitis, ect. All disease markers came back negative, but my GFR was at 11 again and creatinine was 4.25, BUN 50 along with an elevated ACE level. They called me and said I sarcoidosis. I really don't have any of the primary S/S of this autoimmune disease. I don't know where to go from here, they are referring me to another neurologist at a bigger hospital. I can't live my normal life, can't walk on my feet due extreme pain and I pass out at least 2x a week, which is not good for my old body. My BP upon laying and sitting runs like 117/72, upon standing it drops to like 70/50-50/30. I am on 0.1 mg of florinef, I tried increasing it but then my legs swelled up for a gain of 23#. I talked to Mayo Clinic today and all there specialists are booked out thru December. I have to be able to work, I can't stay home any longer than September 8th! Please advise me!

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • I have tendinitis in my feet, ankles, achilles, knees, and shoulders. I have been treating all of it with moderate success. I also have hyperthyroidism caused by graves disease which I just started treating with medication.

    3 days ago, I added Savella to the mix to help with the pain but mostly to manage my depression. Since then, I have had pain and swelling in my wrists, more pain in my lower back, and excess pain in my joints that I kow for sure is not caused by tendinitis. Of course I have had sweating/hot flashes, fatigue and bad nausea from Savella too, but the joint pain and weird swelling is what is worrying me.
