Comments from or about the patient: My Dr. said for me to take the amitriptyline at bedtime. I asked him if this would react with the xanax I am taking. He said it would not since I am taking the time released 1mg xanax. I took the xanax the next morning as usual and I was very sleepy, lethargic, and short of breath all day. I did not take the amitriptyline the next night and took the xanax as usual and felt fine, but the pain was back in my left shoulder blade and in my swollen fingers and hands.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I have an non-typical pulmonary stenosis, MPA aneurysm directly above that valve. The left ventricle was also enlarged due to the stress of my third & final pregnancy put on my heart.

    On March 1st (this year) I went to the ER as none of my asthma treatment weren't working. After several tests a pulmonary embolism was found in my bronchial trunk. It was successfully dissolved with heparin in 48 hours. The PE put more stress on the left ventricle. As a result I was sent home to be on bed rest as I only had trouble breathing while mobile, under stress or attempting to carry on a conversation. At rest, my heart rate & oxygen meter would go back to normal.

    That is no longer the case. When I went in to my Asthma & allergy doctor's office to do my PFT, it was worse than it has ever been, including before I quit smoking 5yrs. ago. This started at the same time I began taking Coumadin & became worse as I reached therapeutic INR levels.
