    Began Avodart for enlarged prostate and having difficulty urinating....3 nights later had transient global amnesia, lasting about 4 hours. Doctor does not think Avodart triggered the amnesia Has anyone had similar experience?
    I am hesitant about going back on the Avodart but need to address the prostate issue.
  • Does enalapril cause dry mouth

  • Avodart and thrombocytopenia
    I have taken Avodart at a very low dose of 0.5 mg avery 4th day for the past 8 years. The Platelet count has dropped slowly during that time. But did not get below the normal range until 2 years ago. Stopping Avodart for 6 months allowed the Platelet count to increase 10%. But restarting Avodart for 3 months resulted in a 20% decrease. Avodart now stopped for 3 months again and the Platelet count has increase 5%. The restarting of the Avodart occurred as I thought that the Lipitor that I had been taking was the cause for the thrombocytopenia. I am 73 years of age.
  • Higher than a kite, and dumber than one of those saying i can no longer remember!
    I told my shrink I didn't want to try anymore antidepressants... that they make me crazy-stupid(pristiq), crazy-nympho(wellbutrin), or crazy-sloth(lexapro). I have complex ptsd, did, and gad. I really don't want to take anything... I just want to work out, eat right, and try to put myself back on track. It seems like every time I try these pills I get pushed off course. Anyways here's my experience with pristiq. Day1) dilation ofpupils was noticed with in a few hours, it started to feel like I was on sshrooms....I'd look in the mirror and feel so much love...just stand there staring. I slept better than I did in months. Day 2) Sadly though, when I woke up I couldn't climax, it was like I was numb. My pupils were still dilated and I still felt an out pouring of love and admiration while looking at myself. I tried hard not to fixate and get ready for work. I noticed that my tummy wasn't bloated anymore, I hadn't felt this much releaf in months. As I took my daily 50mg I reassured myself that it was ok not to climax in favor of all the good things I'm feeling now. Pristiq didn't interfere with my routine other than climaxing. Day 3) I awoke well rested with a happy tummy and it didn't bother me a bit not to climax, I jumped out of bed and started my day with vigor. The moment I took my dose and left the house is the last thing I remember! From what I wrote in my calendar, the notes I took, and my phone history I can piece together the things I did for 7 more days!!! I went to work, but my coworker was on holidays so it was just me alone in the office, I have no family or friends in this country (I moved to get away from a bad situation, hence cptsd) anyways I had no interaction. The only thing that brought me out was probably that I stopped taking the medication on day7 (According to the amount of medication left)....it's taken 14 more days to get out of the pristiq fog. During that time I've experienced nightly vivid dreams/ nightmares, extreme sweating and high body temperature, my stomach discomfort fluctuates but I can control it through diet, I'm able to climax again though it takes time, my pupils returned to normal a few days after I returned to myself...I seem to have memory impairment.
  • Http://www.ehealthme.com/cs/broken+bone/hallucination
    On the 20th of August 2012 I fell downstairs and broke my left arm/shoulder and ribs. I also had many open cuts from my elbow to my wrist; the whole arm and hand was severely swollen; huge purple marks on arm thigh and chest. These have all healed. However the arm/shoulder has healed out of joint and the arm is limited in movement; the ribs have not healed. When I first broke it I couldn't lie down in bed. I had to try to sleep sitting in a chair, but I didn't sleep for several days. For several months, I only slept for 1 or 2 hours, sometimes not at all. Even now I only sleep for 2 or 3 hours. I have bone damage; stiffness and pains all over my body and muscles. I am dizzy and unbalanced. When I walk it feels like I am on a spring mattress and I have difficulty in lifting my legs When I stand still it feels like an earthquake. My neck is very weak; when I turn it to the left or right I have pain. My fingers hurt when I lift a mug of water. Tightness in upper left arm (arm is heavy) and is pulling on my back, neck and ribs and have a pain in the left-hand chest bone. I lost weight and cannot regain it, no matter how much I eat.



    MARCH 14TH 2014- THE FOLOWING IS PART OF MY HORRIFIC PROBLEMS IN THE DAYTIME AND MAY HAVE COME FROM BRAIN DAMAGE WHEN I FELL DOWNSTAIRS

    Today I am sitting in a chair in my room and I nod off and start dreaming/hallucinating. On the dream side, I am lying on the ground with many people around me. On the hallucination side, (which seems like I am half awake) I try to get up but after a tremendous struggle my muscles will not respond. It is terrifying. There are many people around and I'm trying to shout out “help” but I cannot speak properly. I'm speaking like someone who has had a stroke. I am semi-conscious of calling out but I can't wake up. The people around me are laughing at my predicament and do not help. I try many, many times to get up but it is like some force is holding me down. After a long time I crawl towards the gate of a house and go inside and see a bed. Then I try to get up on the bed and at that moment I wake up on the floor of my own room near my chair and my bed. On the hallucination side, I was actually feeling what was happening, even though the dream was in a different location. When I finally woke up, I was breathing like a man saved from disaster. It was a horrible experience and it has happened, in the past, twice before.



    What kind of hallucination could this be?



    I'm asking this advice because the doctors I've seen don't understand.
