- I tested positive for methadone, i have never taken this drug (1 answer)
I tested positive for methadone, I have never taken this drug. My Dr said I had to have taken it because it was there and that a false positive is out of the question. Could my meds cause methadone to show up on a urine drug test

- Does adderal have an effect on alzheimers? (1 answer)
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?

- Effexor lets me down after 20 years
I dropped Effexor for 5 months. Had a depressive episode and went back to it. It blew me away this time around. I'd lost 20 pounds and was exercising a lot. I went back to 37 g and was doing okay although I hated taking it. The side effects: food tasting bad, no sleep, and no sexual desire was making me sad. Anyway, I accidently took 150 and it was very hard. I felt like a zombie and couldn't eat. The next day I took 37 and was okay. I have experienced a lot of anxiety and that seemed to help a little. The next day I took 75, and went hypomaniac. I had to walk around the block 5 times to calm down. The next day without anything I had to take a spinning class, swim, and lift weights to calm down. Followed was 3 horrible days of drug withdrawal. Today, I've been hanging in for most of the day although I had some bad anxiety this morning and afternoon. I am sitting her forcing myself to watch TV. My life has been a living hell for 3 weeks, and all the doctor told me to do is take more of this poison, but at a lower dose.
- Fructose malabsorption symptoms become wore with effexor
I took Venlafaxine for several years. During that time I was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption (FM), something I suspect that I have had for years already. For a period of two years I switched medication and took some other SSRIs instead of Venlafaxine and then returned to Venlafaxine and found that my FM symptoms right away increased/returned. When I came off of Venlafaxine I noticed that my FM symptoms became easier to manage but going back on Venlafaxine has confirm that it does indeed cause greater IBS and FM symptoms.
- Effexor near death experience
In 1999 I was prescribed 75mg time release Effexor. I took one pill and 4 hours later I became dizzy and it felt like a cold patch in the middle of my head. I ckecked my eyes as i started seeing too much light, my puples were dilated, all black. I managed to get up stairs and asked my mom to get me to hospital. I passed out, and as crazy as it sounds I had a vision of my nana. I knew I was gone.she told me to wake up. I wasn't breathing. I could hear my mom talking on the phone to 911saying I had no pulse. (She is an RN) the ambulance came and they couldn't find my blood pressure. I couldn't see very well. The ER doctors said to continue taking the meds and sent my home. I stopped taking the Effexor. I had the side effects for many months. I get aura migraines now and have extreme sensitivity to other drugs.
- 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?
- I wish i had never taken ambien
Ambien was prescribed after my sleep study showed severe sleep latency and awakening. In the five hours I slept I woke 85 times and had only 5 minutes of deep sleep. However, the doctors couldn't make a recommendation because they could detect no cause for the poor sleep pattern. My doctor offered Ambien and since I had obviously needed the help sleeping I took it. For the next 10 years I suffered incredible depression. For example I remember laying in bed staring at the ceiling with tears rolling into my ears but I was too tired to wipe them away and realizing that I wanted to die so badly but there was no way I could have done anything about it. The worst effects were the loss of consciousness and the verbal abuse that I heaped on my husband and son. An example of each : I actually had sex with my husband that I could not remember amd hundreds of other actions and discussions. My husband started asking every morning what I remembered of the night before. He could usually tell when I was Ambien-awake (his name for it) he said my eyes would get glassy and my voice cadence would be off. Unfortunately my oldest son was going from infant to 8 years old at this time and any ifraction or even without provocation I would scream horrible things in his face. I don't remember much of it but what I do remember causes me enormous regret. He went from a happy and active toddler to a terrified amd anxious pre-teen. We are still working through the effects of this behavior. Finally, after a surprise pregnancy (see example above) My baby was placed in NICU and I stayed at the Ronald McDonald House and my son and husband visited when they could. Somehow my Ambien prescription was stopped and so I began going through withdrawal but I had no idea what was going on. My vision became so blurred thqt I couldn't identify items unless they were very large and then only by colors. When I visited my son those several days in the NICU I couldn't walk straight and would try to aim myself toward my goal until I hit a wall and I would correct course. These things didn't bother me at all but the nurses in the NICU were with me nearly the entire day because they were afraid I would have a stroke or who knew. Finally, after discussing these symptoms we decided to gradually stop the medication. Thankfully, i didn't have any withdrawal symptoms then. I did feel like an incredibly heavy and black blanket had been lifted away. Ever since I have had very little trouble with depression despite the continuation of sleep disturbance and pain. On a scale from one to 10 for depression with 10 being committing suicide I think my 10 years on the medicine was probably an 8.5 (I desperately wanted to die) and since stopping the medication I don't think it has gone above a 4 and is usually a 2 or 3. I will spend the rest of my life trying to repair the damage my verbal abuse caused my oldest son and my husband. For 10 years they lived in fear of my rages if I had a bad episode with Ambien.
