Sammy, I'm a white 45 male; just wanted to agree on that Klonopin remark. When I was 21 I had my second kidney transplant which was a BAD issue all together, at any rate the hospital did not include my medications taken at home after my surgery. I went thru the worst hallucinations and jerking and seizures you could ever possibly imagine. This went on for almost 3 1/2 weeks before we decided to have me taken OUT of the hospital and relocated before they ended up taking my life. Then the whole staff of paychology including the chief of psychiatry cane in my room to see what they could do, Finallu. During one of my few moments of clarity the C.O.F after blaming me if talking "drugs" prior to my transplant listened to my word of telling him the meds I was on before being admitted. After asking when was the last time I had received my Klonopin and me not knowing, he then reviewed the charts, and didn't see me receiving this med once. He stormed out of the room of about 9 docs and came back in with two Klonopin; for the first time in almost 4 weeks and after three surgeries the first 72 hours I was hospitalized, I was sleeping like a baby, for about 49 hours with NO MORE hallucinations, or seizures or jerking! I finally got out of there without a kidney since that kidney was supposed to go to another man named the same as I in a different city! I do take Xanax and probably always will. The half life on Klonopin is much different hence one if its dangers, Nevwr Ever stop this drug cold! I've been on dialysis 25 1/2 years now and suffered from intense skin cancers, but have fought and done all I can do to live a normal as possible life, working full time except when I'm in yet another surgery, over 32 general anesthetic procedures since 1987. I was the youngest boy-man to ever be on the USA soccer team ready to play in the Korea 1988 Olympics. What a change in life.....
All the Best,

i have been taking clonzepam and trazedone and my speech is a very hoarse voice, I am wondering if if my speech problem is from these drugs's side effects.
TwoDimes on Apr, 15, 2012:
Upon occasion, I, too, have become hoarse and from the use of Klonopin. I was VERY hoarse when I tried to cold turkey off of 4mgs of Klonopin. I am now down to 1.5mgs per day and, still, (as I said, upon occasion, I become hoarse. I am sure that the use of Klonopin is the causative factor. - TwoDimes -

Omigosh, never cold turkey clonopin, esp that high of a dose. My dad had a major seizure and hallucinations doing so.

I suffer from Hypothyroidism, High Cholesterol & Cancer survivor because of Zyprexa use and previously being prescribed Carbamezapine causing Thyroid damage. My best advice to you if you don't want Hypothyroidism is have regular blood tests, Thyroid damage can be undetected for up to 5 years with no symptoms found on regular blood tests prematurally. Make sure you buy iodised salt to use on food when eating this will help reduce your risk of getting Hypothyroidism. two signs of Hypothyriodism which the Carbamezapine & Zyprexa medication boxes labels wont tell you is if your face becomes puffed up, red or sun sensitive while taking these medications this is a sign of Hypothyroidism. It wont be found on your blood test but later on it could appear out of the blue. The other sign to look for is baldness or hair loss on your head, this is another symptom. I hope these comments will help you. You have to weight up the benefits and negatives taking medications if you decide to take these medicines or not. It depends on how you cope with the drug side effects.

I have to call into question the results of this 'study.' Norvasc is used for hypertension, but not high cholesterol or triglycerides. It can also be used as treatment for Raynaud's.

Can i take biotin on the day of taking methotrexate
From this study (2 years ago):
I always said I would stop before it became a problem, well I didn't realize it was a problem until it was too late to get out. And it happened quicker than I would have ever imagined. Do not abuse drugs, they are fun at first but when they start to destroy your life they control you to where you cant stop.
From this study (2 years ago):
I was in an accident about a year ago--I sustained severe head trauma, severe nerve damage, and many broken bones, including a crushed ankle/foot. The loss of control of my life and prospect of extremely long recovery, coupled with PTSD, led to Celexa being prescribed. I no longer cry everyday when I wake up and see my wheelchair, which is major progress, but I do still have extremely emotional responses to things. Recently this seems to have gotten worse. The head trauma made my already regular migraine becaome an almost daily issue. After months of trying to dealw ith them on my own, my neurologist prescribed Topamax. She prescribed a low dose due to the amount of physical therapy I have to do daily trying to relearn how to walk. She didn't want any side effects to get in the way of that. Recently, I had a 3rd operation from the accident. There was already a lot of nerve damage, but the operation seemed to make the pain worse. They have prescribed Lyrica to help with the nerve pain. So far, it has helped a little, but not a lot. I haven't been on it long enough for it to do much though (just about a week). From my understanding, it can take a little time to build up. It has seemed to dull the pains I have been having, but there do seem to be some shooting pains that come from nowhere. Also, I seem to be getting a lot more numbness and tingling in my arms and legs since starting the Lyrica. I have felt tired at times, as well as dizzy or lightheaded. I have been having odd sleep patterns where I can't sleep, but when I do, I could sleep for days. I also seem to have a slight change in appetite. I just don't seem to be that hungry at all. I feel as though I am forcing myself to eat.
