  • Is there a drug interaction between paxil and flexeril?
    What is the drug interaction, if any between paxil and flexeril? I was taken off a low dosage of paxil two weeks or so ago an due to back issues was issued flexeril for spasms and pain. I try to avoid meds like this but really need it and wanted to know if it was safe. I read about major drug interaction between these two medications and that is why I suffered through pain because I was concerned. Please advise if I can take flexeril now.
  • Can i take fioricet with norco?
    Sufferes from Epilepsy, Aneimia, and Depression and anxiety
  • Can nuvigil (vs adderall) be used simultaneously to help wean off 60mg/day of adderall? (1 answer)
    I have been on Adderall 30mg 2x daily for years!! I've had it lowered to 20mg, I've TRIED to go months without it (when not working) however I feel I've built up a tolerance level to the point that it's not as effective as it once was. My personal life has detoured WAY past anything an ADHD medication can possibly help as far as focusing on NEEDED tasks etc. I end up feeling wrapped up in what I'm doing at the moment that my anxiety increases due to all that I haven't been able to accomplish. I take various medications for various reasons, depression, anxiety, bulimia etc., and for the most part the doses have varied based on circumstances and current need at said time of prescription.. MY FAMILY HAS A HISTORY OF HEART DISEASE, And realizing that I'm already on the highest Adderall dosage scares me (and THEN as I think about it, it makes my heart race!). I've also noticed increased muscle spasms as well as extreme and intense pressure on my jaw (TMJ). MY QUESTION IS: does anyone have any experience LOWERING their Adderall dosage AND adding Nuvigil? The research I've done to date gives me impression that it could help balance out the more extreme effects of Adderall (60mg/day) but that the nuvigil would or could potentially help with the EXTREME exhaustion I feel as Adderall wears off. Some days I just crash, some days I sleep fine and others no matter how hard I tryyyy, I just CAN'T fall asleep, therefore making the next day worse! IDEALLY I'D LIKE TO BE MED FREE, right now I need them, but am hoping maybe I can speak with my doctor to lower Adderall and add Nuvigil to help wean me off the amphetamines as well as lower dosage intake. YES, a lot of the anxiety, sleeplessness and depression are related to current circumstances in my life, however, where I am is not where I want to be or where I'm headed.. Life is a journey, and all my meds have become a part of a journey I never thought I'd find myself taking. I don't want life/meds to define me, or create a me I no longer recognize, because scarily enough that seems to be a common pattern. As I overcome each and every daily obstacle, I also don't want to be "hooked" on my meds or needing "more" to wake up/sleep/function.. I'd like to work on finding a solution towards weaning off my meds NOW, and work my way off slowly, primarily the Adderall. I'm hoping by suggesting to my doctor and showing him my research he may agree (IF ITS EVEN A LOGICAL COMBO, CLEARLY IM NOT A DOCTOR) nuvigil could help me. I've already started taking less of my anti depressants, trazadone and xanax without discussing with doc because he is always busy.. My next appt I want to go in fully prepared with a plan and an overall goal to REDUCE my Adderall dose, but overall, I'm clueless!!! I have no idea what other meds other than nuvigil "could" potentially help if at all. I could be entirely wrong, Anyone with any experience using one vs other or both simultaneously, or anyone with constructive input, PLEASE COMMENT/SHARE!!

  • 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.
  • High potassium blood levels caused by vitamin d3
    I have Parkinson's and fell and broke my hip. Otherwise I have good health. While checking my blood, the doctor was extremely concerned that my potassium levels were above 5.0 and wanted to take rather drastic measures to correct it. Since I have no other symptoms, I was resistant. In the meantime, I thought I saw a study that said vitamin D supplementation could cause a false positive reading on potassium. I was taking 5000 units of D a day for over a year. I stopped taking it while I was in the hospital and the blood level potassium began to normalize.

    I need the vitamin D and need to find out if it is truly detrimental or an illusion .
  • Sleep paralysis while on medrol and norco
    On my 5th day of my dose pack about an hour after taking medrol and a norco I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. This is the 3rd dose pack in 2 months and I just switched back to norco from Ultram the same day I started the latest dose pack. I felt unusually sleepy before taking my bedtime dose, but felt awake shortly after taking it. My sleep habits have been fluctuating due to sciatic pain which is why I am prescribed this medication.
  • Ampyra vs kidney stones
    Started taking Ampyra Sept 1, 2014.
    Had a severe kidney stone in mid-September.
    Another two weeks ago.
    Another today.
    No family history or them. I also have no history of them.

    Ampyra is helping with leg strength a tiny bit.
