  • Does adderal have an effect on alzheimers?
    Adderall has been effective in treatment of ADHD, and I like it. It is highly effective as treatment of lack of focus, and I find that tasks (such as academic research) are much enhanced by it. However I am beginning to experience what I fear is early stages of Alzheimer's.(I am 68). I have been studying the disease, and have been doing things recommended as valuable to retard Alzheimer's development as well as to counter symptoms such as forgetfulness, and loss of mental acuity with significant success. I believe, at least in the short run, Adderall has had a positive effect in my endeavors to counter the symptoms of the disease. However, since one of the principal causes of Alzheimer's is inflammation, I wonder if Adderall causes inflammation, and if it does, is there a way to counter the inflammation?
  • 2 weeks after septoplasty, inside of middle/upper nose burns-why?
    The diabetes was diagnosed about 5 yrs. ago. On prednisone for a psuedotumor. Surgeon went little bit into sinuses to cut a piece of bone. That was to help drain sinuses; chronic infections and suspected link to psuedotumors. Probably blew nose sooner than recommended; clotting made difficult to breath. What's recommended to relieve that sort of pain?

  • Thrush while on prograf
    I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
  • Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
    My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?

But unfortunately nothing woks so he put me on Crestor, it has been a really bad experience, my menstrual periods don't come normal anymore, or sometimes it takes two or three months to come back again. I have hot flashes day or night, and the last one is that I'm gaining weight. I'm not sure what to do, any pill will give you side effects, I never read side effects. I'm 100% percent this is not coincides is real an is happening to me.
