- Does keppra couse anyone bruising?
I've been taking Keppra for about 2 yeara now, and my legs are always bruised. I don't know why, I'm wondering if this could be a sid effect.
- Why would naproxen be chosen above other anti-inflammatory drugs ?
I had Kidney stones Years ago and they were removed over 18 months slowly by monthly appointments for Lithotrypsy ( Ultrasound ) Over all this time I had a jj Stent tied off from inside my Kidney to inside my Bladder ( To keep Kidney from blocking again ) In the years since then I have sufferred intense pain in Kidney region and have ben told there are now cysts in my kidney. Occasionally these cysts burst and bleed thus blocking my urethra with clot.
- I take klonopin and diltiazem (calcium channel blocker blood pressure medicine) and am concerned about side effects. my accupuncturist recommends the ashwagandha. anyone have any issues with this?
I take these prescription medications but have been going to an accupuncturist since 2012. I have trouble sleeping at night without my clonazepam and take naps during the day and am having trouble losing weight. She thinks that my adrenal glands may be fatigued and told me to try something called Adrenal Response which contains Sensoril Ashwagandha. When I looked up Ashwaganda it said that it could interact with the Clonazepam or Klonopin and also with High blood pressure medication. I am a little concerned. I mentioned this to her and she said they both are metabolized by the liver and it should be ok to take it, just to take it an hour or more after I take the Clonazepam. Has anyone had any issues with interactions with their prescribed meds while taking Ashwagandha? I don't want to have to monitor my blood pressure because my blood pressure medication works good for me. Any help would be appreciated because I want to try it but I am a little scared too. Thanks, Crystal
- What is the sugar content of hydroxyzine syrup? how will it interact with the ketogenic diet for seizure disorder?
Son is starting the ketogenic diet again after having been successful and seizure free for 13 years. Seizures are creeping back in so we are staring the diet again. Hydroxyzine is the only med that might have an interaction because it is a liquid syrup. I can't find anything that tells me the sugar content of this syrup.
- Can lamictal cause false positive pcp drug screen (2 answers)
I had a rapid urine drug screen for new employment and it shows positive for PCP. I have never taken or even seen PCP. I am so embarrassed and mortified. Needless to say my urine has been sent to a lab to see if it can rule out false positive results. I called my neurologist and my Pharmacist and both say Lamictal cannot cause false positive. So I searched internet and have found it can cause false positive PCP results? I know I have never taken PCP.

Prescribed for COPD flare-up, along with a 10 day course of prednisone. On day 5, I experienced extreme irritability. I was imagining what it would be like to shoot my husband. He had kicked me in his sleep and I was very seriously thinking of shooting that foot. I got up and secured the gun. However, the anger stayed with me.
On day 9, my knees were so swollen that I could not bend my legs. It hurt to walk. I could not get up and down without assistance.
3 weeks after discontinuing the medication, I still have tenderness and knee pain. I had to cut my hours at work because of the pain.
