  • Will vertigo subside when i stop subtex
    Have been crippled with vertigo and light headed ness for almost 3 months. Have been on subtext for 6 years at 2 mg. vertigo came on quickly with nausea and vomiting. Anyone else have this experience? I have tapered down to .50 mg and no change in dizziness.
  • 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
  • Every time i go in for sedation i do not go to sleep i think citalapram has interaction. anethesiologist don't listen (3 answers)
    Every single time I have a medical procedure such as colonoscopy, DNC, wisdom teeth removal and several nerve blocks,EEG, shots in spine I do not go to sleep and have woken up in the middle of the procedure. My gastonologust stated he had to give me six time the normal twilight sleep cock tail while other doctors refuse to listen to me. Thus leaves me with horrible memories, and even though I am yelling in pain the doctors think I am out. Today was the final straw that caused me to seek answers. I have been told citalapram reduces the affects of versed and Valium.
  • How to treat tubercolosis pimples?

  • Acne while taking diflucan
    I've been taking Diflucan for three weeks for an uncontrollably itchy rash across my entire chest. The itching is 100% better and the rash 75% better, however, I now have large, hard, cystic acne on my cheeks and chin and all across my jawline. I will take the Diflucan once more next week then report back on the acne. BTW I am 52 years old and occasionally take Allegra.
  • Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
    I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
  • Constant tiny pimples and worse after taking lantus
    I finally made a connection to my skin issue. I have been using lantus for nearly 6 or so years now and I mostly always have some sort of raw acne on my face. I had it prior to Lantus as well, but it seemed it I could somewhat tell what set it off.
    Anyhow, I recently had ran out and used Novolin 70/30 until the other came in. During the use my sugars were better and my skin seemed to clear up a bit. So, I get another bottle of Lantus and less than 1 week of use I had a blister on my foot and my face, all at once, was nearly covered in tiny rash-ish like tiny blisters. They don't clear up with acne medicine and there are at least 2 new ones every morning. I watch them develop throughout the day as well. I have kept using it bc I don't want to waste it and bc of this my face has stayed "blistery" and I feel infectious.
    Whether it is related or not I also get very large, painful and destructive cysts on my face as well. I was told by my doctor that it looks like staff, but I never got them on my face before Lantus. Kind of makes a bit of a correlation to me.

    Does anyone else experience these issues?
  • Citalopram seizures in my 13 year old daughter
    My daughter just turned 13. Her Father died last year and she was having trouble dealing with it so her doctor put her on 20 mil of citalopram once a day. She started feeling better in about a week. About 30 days later she had a severe seizure and quit breathing. I did CPR and got her breathing again and the paramedics took her to the hospital. After an MRI and EEG they sent her home and said keep an eye on her. She had about 6 seizures all together. I wouldn't let her out of my sight. Finally on her last trip to the hospital after having a seizure I again asked could it be the meds and the ER doc said yes so we took her off of it and no more seizures. It's been 4 weeks now and I'm hopeful that we found the problem. My daughter had never had any health problems... Be very careful what kind of meds you put your children on. Thank God she was home with me that night.
  • Long-term use of risperidone and antidepressants
    I have been using Risperdal and antidepressants for 14 years for bipolar disorder. Last month I was diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency and progesterone deficiency. My cholesterol suddenly became high, I was tired all the time and more symptoms relating to my eventual diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency and progesterone deficiency. I must also say that at the same time of starting treatment I stopped using birth control pills. I feel there needs to be caution taken in all of these drugs. They seem to have a severe effect on hormone balance in the body.
