  • 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.
  • Prednisone relieves anosmia
    Having had anosmia for 15 years now the only thing that ever relieves it, albeit temporarily, is prednisone. I have done 2 surgeries to remove polyps (and won't do it again, waste of time and money - the polyps returned within a year), every herb and other "guaranteed cure" (bogus) on the Internet and the only thing that gives me my smell back is prednisone. Have also done allergy injections, nebulizers, neti-pots, Flonase, etc. None of these things work.
    Being without smell is subtly debilitating. It takes away your drive, your pleasures of life and leads to depression. I wish the medical community would apply as much effort here as they do to the loss of hearing or sight since this is in many ways just as debilitating although in more subtle ways.
  • Drugs are killing us
    Chronic sinusitis, hands shake, heart races. These conditions are horrendous. If I don't take this drug I can't breathe. Any suggestions would be appreciated otherwise I will have to live in the Dominican Republic where these symptoms disappeared immediately as I walked up hills and never once used my Ventolin. Go figure.
  • Toperimate has ruined my life!
    On Dec 2, 2015 I started taking Toperimate for severe back pain. Within 48 -36 hours I became very sick - throwing up, nausea, blood in my feces, putrid taste in mouth, blurry eyes, difficulty sleeping, confusion and severe fatigue. I felt like I was poisoning myself! After 7 days I felt no improvement to my back pain and was in pretty bad shape. So I made the decision to go off of it after day 7's dose. On day 9, I woke up with severe VERTIGO. I thought I was dying, it was so bad! Was it a brain tumor (I wondered at the time, horrified!)? I didn't know. I believe (actually I KNOW) it was a side effect of the Toperimate, which can cause vertigo. I also immediately began to feel drunk all the time, even when I wasn't "spinning". I had vertigo and the drunk feeling for 1week and then I went to Urgent Care. The doctor was useless and only gave me Valium. No answers, no improvement. I waited 3 more weeks, desperate, and again went to second UC doctor. This one was competent. He diagnosed me with BVVP ( Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo - which us caused by dislodged calcium crystals in my inner ear.) and set me up to have the Epley Manuever through Vestibular Rehab Physical Therapy. My vertigo was (temporarily) corrected after the first PT visit. Although I was thrilled, I was STILL feeling drunk. I've had both an MRI and MRA to rule out brain rumors, etc. everything, thank God, came out clean. Yes! But I still felt drunk 24/7. 3 weeks after The Physical Therapist corrected my vertigo. It fully came back. I was devastated! But I was able to correct it myself by doing the Epley Maneuver by myself at home. I watched a Youtube Video for instructions. I need to mention that I believe I caused the vertigo to return the second time because the night before it returned, my husband used a vibrating massager on the back of my head/upper neck area because I had pain there. I learned from my PT that the vibrations could have again dislodged the calcium crystals in my inner ear. Strange, right? She said often the PTs use vibration to force the crystals back where they're supposed to be. Apparent, the opposite is true too. Well, today is February 2, 2015. I haven't had a recurrence of my vertigo but I STILL FEEL DRUNK 24/7!!!! Thanks Toperimate and it's makers, and the doctor that gave it to me. It was supposedly a "conservative approach" to my back pain, but the question is......will I ever feel normal again? If I do heal from this, I will try to remember to update this webpage again. Good luck to anyone who experiences this problem.
  • Formoteral fumarate inhalation powder
    I have been using this drug since 2004. The only one that gives me near immediate relief. I have tried nearly every drug for this condition, and this is the only one that is easy to use, at home and away. I also follow up with azthmanex, which is a steroid, and using for a year
