Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Cannabidiol interact topiramate
    Chronic Migraines, taking Topomax & propanidol with mild success. Are there any major interactions with cannabidiol (CBD)and the drugs I'm taking?
  • Can mrsa cause chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction?
    I had a small bowel obstruction caused by adhesions from an appendectomy carried out 20yrs previously and had grumbling pain ever since but been labelled a malingerer by my family GP until one day at work when I started with terrible tummy ache and sickness like I'd never known, fetching up bile with force. I hated going to hospital after yrs of being called a moaner but after a day of rolling round in pain, temperature of 103 an dehydration, my Mammy insisted we go and I was seen straight away - to my shock I was in theatre within 3hrs with a serious obstruction.
    I never really recovered... The obstruction returned after 2 days and a portion of necrotic bowel was removed, then further fever and cellulitis then MRSA and deaths door.... Isolation in high dependency (intensive care) wound break down, ventilated and all related issues that come with that - chest infection, pneumonia, bed sores. Total time in hospital 8 months. Negative pressure dressing on laparotomy wound, colostomy, picc, 4 rounds of vancomycin, minor flirt with heart failure (just water related) an eventually everything healed. Had a large incisional hernia to repair and some corrective work to the horrific scarring but then the neuropathy started plus problems eating, spewing up after any solid food, more than a few forks, diarrhoea and sickness or constipation nausea and pain driving me mad, tried all manner of drugs, nerve blocks, physio, floating tank, acupuncture, opiates, non opiates, spinal cord stimulation, an now a consultant just had a 'eureka' moment and said were you treated with vancomycin when you had MRSA? If so I'm pretty sure you have chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction and is 90% sure but wants to take a muscle biopsy to be certain. I've had so much surgery and bad news in the last 10yrs I'm terrified of germs, hospital acquired bugs and anaesthetics, is there any other way? Or can I have this test done awake - conscious sedation? I had it before during spinal cord surgery so I know what's involved and it's better than GA as I know what's going on, who is doing what to me etc...
    Does anyone with a medical background know about this ailment/disease? Does it sound feasible that MRSA or it's treatment could have caused this? I was surgically debrided up to every other day when the vac pac/negative pressure machine and dressings were changed and the doctors told me I lost a great deal of tissue and had a lot of nerve damage due to the infection.
    Any patient perspectives on this illness would also be very much valued in helping me make a decision, moving forward. If all this is going to accomplish is to attach a label to the pain but not actually change anything, after fighting it for 10yrs now, avoiding hospital as much as I can, I really can't see the point of exploratory surgerys and biopsys now when it is known that I have this propensity towards adhesions and a new wound means a potentially new adhesion growth site.
    If it helps, the appendectomy happened when I was 10yrs old, the MRSA when I was 30 and I am now 40.

  • Omeprazole or pantoprazole?
    I take an oral contraceptive, Diane-35 ED, which is not in the list of drugs to choose from on this site.

    Recently, the medication I was taking for my stomach ulcer (Omeprazole) became unavailable in my country of residence and was replaced by Patoprazole. I started taking it yesterday morning and by midday today the side effects were unbearable. I am nauseous, have diarrhea, and a very severe headache. This didn't happen with Omeprazole. Do you think this is a drug interaction or is there some difference between the two that I am perhaps sensitive to?

    Took Buspirone 5mg once and a few minutes later felt a bubble on my lip. The next morning I check and sure enough it's a blister on my top lip. Called a nurse and she said I had an allergic reaction.
  • 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.
  • Fluoxetine with hypnagogic hallucinations
    Was taking fluoxetine until recently for a depressive episode (suffered from depression pretty much my whole life). Strange hypnagogic hallucinations and bizarre thoughts, sometimes coupled with feeling faint. Also strong feelings of numbness for the first two weeks or so, headaches and dry mouth. Strangely only on 20mg...This is my second time on fluoxetine and the experience has been totally different (last time it seemed to make me act callously and superficially towards people, and to be generally irresponsible, going out, avoiding work etc.).

    Doctor had now changed me over to sertraline, been on it for 3 days and ok so far apart from minor headaches.
  • Interactions of rantidine 150 mg & theophylline 200mg taken in am
    I started taking 150mg rantidine with 200mg theophylline, and zyrtec in the morning before breakfast. Within 1 hour of taking my medications, even after eating, I found myself overwhelmed with anxiety, restlessness, the inability to think, and the feeling of dread.
    I initially started taking rantidine in the evening, an hour before bed time, and found that it did not cause such a strong reaction. I really believe that these medications, when taken together, can really cause an adverse reaction for a person. I mean, it did me.
