Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Is coughing and gagging associated with hiatal hernia
    Coughing, gagging and extreme diarrhea have been evident since the introduction of warfarin/coumadin. Could these symptoms be caused by this bolld thinner?
  • Is donepezil a "safe" drug for people with atrial-fib to take?
    I was diagnosed with Atrial-Fib in 2006, soon after my husband died. I have no problems with it and my blood pressure is always normal. I am 89 years old and have been told that I look MUCH younger. I am very active- love dancing, which

    I am still able to do. My problem is that recently I found out that I have trouble remembering names; it bothered me, so I was tested by a psychologist, who gave results to my primary doctor who then prescribed DONEPEZIL for me to take. I went through almost every single side affect and, after three months of taking the drug, I am tolerable of it. But- it "scares" me- I wonder what it is doing to my brain. I am a well-educated person: have a degree in Health,

    Phys Ed, & Recreation from NYU (1946) and a Masters in Special Ed from a Teachers' College in CT. Taught elementary school for 30 years- also ran my

    Dancing School for 5 years. My question is: isn't it "normal" to have some

    memory loss at my age? MY atrial-fib has been in complete control, so far, and

    I do not want any new medication to "rock the boat", so to speak. Is DONEPEZIL dangerous for me to take?
  • Can i takere warfarin with flecainide and metopropol
    a/fib comes on suddenly like being switched on and then after maybe 48 hours will switch off but this time it has lasted for over two weeks and have now been taken off sotalol and put on the above two drug
  • What drug can i replace for this drug? warfarin soduim
    Cannot seem to adjust.
  • What drug can be used in place of warfarin sodium?
    Is there a drug I can take in place of warfarin Sodium for blood thining? Have 3 Hip replacements.

  • Invokana and fatigue
    I was prescribed this medication. I was sleeping an extra 5 hours during a 24 hour period. I would find myself falling asleep at 4pm not waking till 7. This is not my normal sleep pattern. Clearly this medicine is robbing me of daylight.
  • Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
    When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
  • The effect of magnesium citrate on coumadin
    the combination of coumadin and magnesium citrate guarantees too low INR
  • Gabapentin made me comatose
    I took Neurontin, and then its generic, Neurontin, for about five years. It was prescribed for chronic pain. I found it ineffective, but kept being told it was a good drug, quite benign, and was probably benefiting me more than I realized. I did NOT realize that toward the end of the five-year period I was sinking into somnolence. On some days I simply didn't bother with the drug, because I felt it was ineffective, but on others I followed doctor's orders. Thus my condition varied depending on whether I'd actually ingested the drug. My condition came to a crisis when my husband called me from work, and found me incoherent. He took me to the ER, but I remember nothing about it. Apparently I was pleasant during admission, but clearly confused (I thought we had two presidents -- probably conflating George Bush with George W. Bush.) By the time doctors saw me, I was comatose. The physicians suspected morphine intoxication, as I was a chronic-pain patient. They didn't know what to do and thought I was dying. My husband told them the name of my pain- management doctor, who immediately diagnosed the problem. My kidneys were shutting down. He pointed to my creatines, which were off the chart. He told the other doctors to hydrate me fully, and leave me alone -- that I would be fine. I awoke about 10 hours later in intensive care. A nurse asked me if I knew where I was, and I replied I knew I was in the hospital but didn't know why. I was discharged the next morning, and had no lasting effects from the drug.
  • Patients having false positives while on remeron
    I have had a few patients complain they are failing drug tests for Amphetamines while on remeron, and have claimed to have not used any type of Amphetamine or any (Mixed Salts). These patients are all or were on probation, parole, or under some stipulation. Iv realized most of these patients are taking another psych med. The list consists of insomnia meds such as Ambien(zolpidem), Sonata(zaleplon),Lunesta(eszopiclone). Also the Anti-Depressants Lexapro (escitalopram)and Prozac (fluoxetine). One of my patients was on Diazepam (Valium). I have switched medicines, particularly the Ambien, Lexapro, and Prozac have reversed the false negative. I prescribe many of my patients remeron. I'm a big believer in its effects on my patients moods and everyday depression. I have heard this happening before, but this was the first time I have ever had this happen to one of my own patients.(These were 5 separate patients in the span of 16 months) Of course none of these patients were criminalized based on lab results, but the issue still lies there. I know this is common for a lot of script meds to give false positives for narcotics. This is just obviously one I am putting out there. Let me know if anyone has experienced something similar.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • For the past few months I have been craving sweets and getting up at night to eat. It's like some filter of block has been removed and I eat whatever with no discretion or moderation. Doesn't happen every night. I know I am stressed due to family deaths and recently moving. I had previously lost 60 lbs & have gained 10 back
