- Bipolar 2 since 1975. recently d/c'd lithium. looking for a treatment that will not make glaucoma condition worse (1 answer)
I am trying to determine which medication to use now that my 40 year successful run with Lithium is over. (The kdneys say it's time to quit). However, I do not want to increase intraocular pressure by using a medication known to increase said pressure. Most importantly, I do not want to lose my livelihood or cause my family and friends unforeseen difficulty due to ineffective medications. I have little faith in the alternatives and see Depakote, Geodon, and Lamictal as poor seconds at
best. Any suggestions???

- Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
- Seizure patient was on depakote for 16 years now on keppra 1500 mg.
I am 28 years old and been off depakote for 5 months. I started keppra to control my seizure disorder, which works great. But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?
- Lump in throat, swallowing problems, reflux (1 response)
After 3 months, my total cholesterol went way down, but developed terrible throat problems. Like an ever-present lump that made it difficult to swallow. At night, discomfort with acid going up and down my throat all night, making it hard to sleep and breathe. Stopped taking Simvastatin on my own (doctor said it was not the cause) and within 3-4 days, the throat problems totally resolved and have not come back. Also had many leg-cramps when using it.
- Depakote er affected by grapefruit
I have taken Depakote ER for since 2005 for epilepsy. Once stabilized many years ago seizures and auras have not been bothering me. Until I recently ate three grapefruits over three days. After a few days, when the grapefruit cleared my system, the seizures and auras ceased. Therefore, grapefruit does affect how Depakote ER acts on your system.
- Allergic reaction to lipitor
Took 10mg of Atorvastatin for 3 days to reduce choldesterol LDL below 100. I felt peculiar from the first day, however by the 3rd dosage day I came home from work in a state of extreme pain in my hands and limbs. This rather quickly became systemic and I was unable to get out of bed. I was beyond exhausted. I had taken Crestor sucessfully for almost 3 months after a stent procedure but because of insurance issues was switched to this cholesterol medicatyion. My wife contatced the on call cardiologist who expressed concern and discontined the medication. The following morning my hands were swollen and so was my throat and tongue...I was lucky it did not become more severe. I also developed a rash on my hands and arms and legs and torso which was itchy. This was cleary an allergic reaction. After speaking with my cardiologist and the Cardiac nurse that works with him it is apparent that I had a realtively serious reaction. It has taken me more than a week to feel semi normal.
