  • Can i take naloxone with ocarbazpine
    wondering if the Naloxone mixed with the triliptal is doing this. Wondering if I can take the Buprenorphine with this medication
  • Does suboxone cause extreme anger issues? (1 answer)
    My husband was my best friend. He started taking suboxone 2 years ago after stopping methadone cold turkey and in recent months he gets very angry over nothing. He can wake up out of a dead sleep screaming, throwing things, hitting me. You can't talk to him. It's really scary. He refuses to allow me to use a phone to call for help. He doesn't want me telling anyone what's going on. About a month ago, a friend of his came here with some neurontin and said it was for my husband. The doctor he sees was suppose to wean him off the meds but his dose is still the same. I'm concerned that he will hurt me or himself(he tries cutting himself during his episodes) but he won't tell me what going on. I wonder if there is a way to inform his physician of this new change without him finding out or if there is a specific time for coming off. Should this doctor have already began the weaning process? What can I do to save my husband and our marriage? Please help!

  • Weighted feeling in legs
    I was prescribed tizanidine for lower back pain. I have sciatic nerve issues and fibromyalgia. I also have ptsd and just started remembering skiing accident that I had 19 years ago at age of 15 where I suspect concussion and sinal injury that was left untreated do to to medical neglect (waiting on x-ray results). I thought I was having muscle memories until I seen commercial about varicose vein removal and how weighted or heavy leg feelings where disappeared after surgery. I have very noticeable and thick as a snake varicose veins in my legs. I was looking up side effects I have been having dizziness, numbness in back, nausea, trouble bm while taking pill and hot flashes when messing a dose. I thought why not check deep vein thrombosis (which I suspect I have because of varicose veins). Low and behold there are others with this problem. So now I can add that to list. When I miss a dose my legs feel weighted down. I have only been on tizanidine for 1 month and 2 weeks. Very low dose to start 2mg 3x day. Only other meds are vitamins and metformin (which I am on another break from for 3 days now). I feel side effects of tizanidine are worse than benifits.
  • Ears thundering after suboxone or any opiate
    Anyone notice the thundering in your ears after taking suboxone. Larger doses mostly and it actually happens with any opiate. It's a rumbling in the ears, I did read that hearing loss and opiates were connnected. hmmm
  • Ulcerative colitis from suboxone?
    Anyone else out there experiencing ulcerative colitis after multiple yearprescribed Suboxone? Suboxone stole a large portion of my life, and now I am considering going on a full-agonist analgesic until the buprenorphine bond has broken, and no more presence of it in my plasma. Insane!
  • Suboxone treatment may have caused my trichotillomania
    It's a long story of how I became addicted to opiates after 15+ years of chronic pain, but I decided to give up pain killers and try suboxone/subutex treatment. Shortly thereafter, I began pulling hair. First from my head, then when the bald spots became too obvious I started pulling from all over. It seemed to be triggered by stress or anxiety but not always. I did not make an association until recently, when I finally stopped the suboxone. It was two weeks of miserable withdrawal, much worse than from pain killers themselves, but I am finally out of the haze I'd be in all of that time, and I have no urge to pull hair whatsoever. I don't know how often the association of suboxone use and trichotillomania has been examined, but I wanted to share my experience in case anyone else is in a similar situation. Also, if you are considering starting suboxone treatment, don't. Withdrawal from opiates will lead to a few pretty rough days, but that's nothing compared to what you'll go through during suboxone withdrawal.
  • Pacemaker experience
    I had a pacemaker installed about 5 weeks ago. I went to the doctors because I was feeling fatigue, shortness of breath, I felt as if someone was holding my heart in their hand and I had some confusion and dizziness.

    To get to the point, after my first visit with my PCP I decided to go directly to emergency via 911 since my PCP was basically ignoring, or better put, had no sense of urgency regarding how I was feeling even though she knew my heart rate had dropped and was steady at 44 bpm, my normal rate 62 bpm.

    The night I was in observation at the hospital I dropped to 20 bpm, next day I had a pacemaker installed, had I not taken the initiative to call the hospital I don't know if I would have continued dropping until I was dead, I don't know enough about the science behind this to draw that conclusion but common sense tells me yes.

    I have explained this in another post but I cannot find it, not sure what I am doing wrong, so I am writing another post because I have more to add after a couple of weeks since my last post.

    The issue I have is I am still tired after more than a month after the installation of the pacemaker. I had the bpm (beats per minute) on my pacemaker increased from 60, the factory settings, to somewhere in the mid 60's.......so I thought. I went to the hospital twice to have my pacemaker "tweaked" but when I met with the cardiologist for my "one week" follow up, which took almost three weeks to see him due to his heavy schedule, he told me there were never any changes made to my pacemaker, I was still at 60 bpm. How could this be since I was told twice it had been increased? I had the wand on my chest and the nurse made the changes which were made due to my complaining about being exhausted still, the reason I went to the PCP in the first place five weeks ago.
    Was she playing mind games, thinking the power of suggestion would make me feel better? If so I am disgusted to think she would feel I was faking my feelings of exhaustion, what she did had absolutely no effect on how poorly I was feeling.

    To get to the point, I finally had my first meeting with the surgeon, he raised my bpm to 75 from 60, was going to go to 80 but changed his mind. The moment he made the change to 75 bpm from my original 60 he asked if I was feeling better, feeling better after 60 seconds of changing the bpm, how is that possible? I told him no, kind of too soon to tell. His reply was "it looks like we have done everything we can on our end, your heart was not significantly damaged, your pacemaker is working as it should, therefore there must be something else making you feel so poorly so I suggest you see an internal medicine specialist." My brain had a big WHAT sign flashing, I couldn't believe what he was saying, basically beat it and move on, I don't have the time to deal with you anymore. Lets see, the appointment lasted 25 minutes and he does not have the time to work with me anymore, sorry but that irritates the hell out of me.

    He was washing his hands of me, nothing else he could do so spend time and money finding out what the problem is with an internest, it is not my heart according to the cardiologist. The appointment ended and I left wondering how I was going to find out what is causing my issues.

    To my great fortune a nurse with 20 years experience teaching doctors and nurses how to use the pacemaker computer asked me to come into her office after my appointment with the cardiologist, she asked me this prior to seeing the doctor. Thank God she did as the doctor did not do a thorough job adjusting the pacemaker, she adjusted what the doctor had, tweaked the pacemaker a bit, had me walk for 10 minutes and come back to the office and did a bit more tweaking, I slowly started feeling a touch better. She asked me to come back in two weeks and she would see if the pacemaker needed to be tweaked a bit more. I was walking on air, still not close to my "normal", thrilled I was not just a number being tossed in the heap of unfixed people. I am feeling 70% better than how I felt prior to the doctor and her tweaking the pacemaker. Had she not been there that day and had the opportunity to do this I would be on a never ending search for what is making me feel so exhausted and!
    dizzy.

    There is a moral to this which I will let you draw your own conclusion. In my mind it is trust God will intervene, he certainly did when the nurse asked me to see her after the appointment with the surgeon. The reason I feel this way is because she was there and is only there on Fridays, the day I had my appointment. I never would have gone back again after my meeting with the doctor and I would have been spending needless hours and money looking through the wrong box for what ales me. Now it is obvious it was my pacemaker settings, my heart rate was set too low and the pacemaker was not fine tuned properly with the proper slope and other settings.

    Don't let these doctors do what mine tried doing with me, be aggressive and insist on more adjustments if you have issues similar to mine.

    AS I sit here I am still tired, I could easily take a nap but I am better than I was yesterday, significantly.

    Best of luck to all. Your comments will be very much appreciated.
