- What's the danger of taking trazodone for sleep and tylenol 3 with codeine for pain?
I'm dealing with bone on bone osteoarthritis of the knees and taking 25mg Trazodone for sleep and Tylenol 3/codeine 2x daily for pain. I'm weaning off 25mg of trazadone every 5 wks from 200mg I was taking for 9yrs. I'm now down to 25mg and Mar 27/15 I'll be completely off this medication. It's amazing my knees are not getting worse that's why I'm taking myself off these medications because I want to guard against liver problems or anything else they may cause.I know when I don't take the Tylenol for 15hrs or more withdrawals start and as soon as I take them it's ok. I want to wean from Tylenol as well after I'm off Trazodone and leery of the withdrawals. Anyone out there experiencing the same problems? I'd appreciate info if you are please. Thank you

- Rash from eating kale
I ate kale for the first time on Monday. I only had a small bowl of fresh mixed green salad, so it wasn't entirely Kale. By Tuesday, I had a small rash on my left hip. I ignored it at first. Thursday evening, I decided to eat a large kale salad with other veggies and salmon, all of which I have eaten regularly aside from kale. Friday morning, my entire body was covered in the same rash that appeared Tuesday. I went to the ER. The doc said it was some type of allergic reaction. The ONLY thing I did/consumed different was the kale. I can't find much about it's reactions, though.
- Double vision on levothyroxine
Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.
- Bone pain localized to poison ivy rash
I am having a moderate to strong reaction to poison ivy exposure. I have a localized rash with blistering, swelling and inflammation similar to cellulitis. The rash has been progressing for about a week. The blisters are not weeping or oozing. The area is cleaned daily with neem oil soap. Coincident with the rash, I have a persistent ache/pain in my lower forearm, wrist and hand that is responding weakly to Aleve and pretty much unresponsive to acetaminophen.
- How an integrative wellness approach cured me of insomnia, ibs, and more (1 response)
For 10+ years, I suffered with insomnia and a host of other problems including intestinal distress, headaches, psoriasis, anxiety, cognitive issues, hypothyroid, chronic itching, restless leg, etc. Traditional medicine, aka taking drugs, was not working to heal me. Since childhood, I’ve had IBS, headaches, and upper respiratory problems. Then, in my early twenties, after childbirth, I begin to suffer with panic attacks. I managed to get the panic attacks under control, but the insomnia never went away. I took both Ambien and Clonazepam at different times in my life. When I expressed my concern over taking these meds, my doctor reassured me and told me that some people just have to take sleeping meds for their entire life. I read literature on insomnia and tried most everything – no late night eating, no TV or electronics before bed, sleep in a cool room with complete darkness, meditate, sleep labs, etc. etc. etc. Even with the sleeping meds, I never got restful sleep. Most days, I felt like it was all I could do just to get by. For at least the first half of each day, I felt that I was in dazed stupor until the meds in me would start to wear off. I was first on Clonazepam and then switched to Ambien. When I made the switch, I suffered through withdrawal for about a week. It was horrible -- no sleep, hallucinations, etc. For years, I had silently suffered – my family, friends, and colleagues having no idea to what extent. I felt that mentally, cognitively, and physically I was slowly slipping away. My love for my child and my desire to nurture and provide for him is what kept me going. Without this purpose in my life, I fear that I might have given up somewhere along the way.
Finally, a few years ago, I went to see an integrative medicine doctor. After years of being in the darkness, I am finally living again. My IM doctor put me on natural supplements, a natural thyroid replacement, and, most importantly, tested me for food allergies/sensitivities. My test results yielded that I could not tolerate wheat, gluten, yeast, and dairy. I took these results seriously and I completely eliminated these things from my diet. After two weeks of adhering to my new diet, I already felt better. In fact, I felt so much better, that, one evening, I decided not to take my Ambien. I have not taken it or any sleep or anxiety medicine since. My doctor was as surprised as I was and did not really anticipate that the diet alone would cure my insomnia. In fact, he had told me that, since I had been taking sleeping meds for so long, eliminating them completely would be a long process that we would have to work through together. Nearly all of the symptoms I listed have disappeared. I continue to take my natural thyroid replacement and the supplements my doctor suggested. I have the occasional migraine and a few patches of psoriasis -- but nothing like the severity I had before. I am 47 now and I am on a journey of healthy transformation. I eat healthy foods, exercise regularly, and truly feel healthy, younger, and physically stronger than I have in 15 and maybe 20 years. Jokingly, my husband used to refer to me as "fragile." Well, not anymore. In fact, he has told me that my body seems like a completely different one. He has had a front-row seat to my transformation and he is as much "in awe" of the changes in me as I am in myself.
Ten years ago, I was not optimist about my future. Today, I am full of hope, wonder, energy, and excitement. I believe we have the ability to heal ourselves, but we must be diligent in our pursuit of knowledge, persistent and strong in our will to make lifestyle changes, and patient that results will come as long as we are doing all the right things. By the way, giving up foods I had eaten my entire life was not difficult at all once I did it long enough to realize the tremendous benefits of not eating them.
