I have schizophrenia and I take all the modern drugs to combat - including haldol, risperidone, and generic seroquel. I was just wondering because of a bloated stomach would milk thistle interact with these medications. I just heard it was good for you.

I have been taking AVAPRO for about five years. There is a lot of difficulty swallowing, I just switch amlodipne and have the same problem.
Any ideas what would be an alternative to these 2 drugs or what you can do to relief this.
I have read that taking daily aspirin and vitamin C can cause this. Not sure how true.
Any help would be great.

- Dysphagia with flomax to move kidney stones
I was experiencing extreme pain in right upper abdomen and was checked at the hospital and kidney stones were diagnosed. Flomax was prescribed in september 2014. I only took about 2 days worth after pain stopped. But then pain returned in December so i decided to continue taking flomax but i suddenly got stroke like complications so i went back to the hospital where they removed the kidney stones. But my dysphagia is still holding on today February 2 2015. I have seen an ent that said it looks fine and must be mechanical. I have a gastrologist appointment and a neurolist appointment coming up. Hopefully someone will give me an answer how to fix this. In the meantime i can not eat solids(no applesause ) i just chug water and cough it back up if it goes the wrong way. And the same with liquid fruit shakes which are all that i can tolerate. Thank God i have not developed pneumonia or other issues but the constant coughing is putting a toll on me. For anyone who wants tips on dealing with this just keep looking for anything that can help relieve your swallow function.
- Zoloft & klonipin created a horrible psychosis
Causes psychosis, bipolar anxiety and seizures. Violence happens on all psychiatric drugs. Curing psychosis and deafness took the complete abandonment of psychiatry.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 days ago):
Have had neck, shoulder and arm pain off and on for years. 2014 MRI discovered spinal arthritis in lumbar with degenerated disc and in spinal arthritis (severe) in cervical area along with bulging discs. I am now having sciatica pain in buttock along with legs jerking and shaking. I am now having neck,shoulder and arm pain along with sudden episodes of arm and wrist drop.
In early 2013 I started having weakness in ankles both legs. As the year progressed the weakness expanded into my lower legs. In October 2013 I was diagnosed with ALS due EMG test. Now (February 2015) I am 95% wheelchair bound and experiencing all these spine problems. My arms are starting to weaken too - both at the same time.
All my symptoms in legs and arms are symmetrical- started and progressing in both legs or both arms at same time. I have learned that jaw problems can be caused by spine also. I can't help but wonder if my ALS is being caused by my spine problems.
From this study (1 week ago):
I have elders DanLos syndrome type 3 , gastroparesis ,postural orthostatic tachicardia syndrome , posterior laryngitis
From this study (1 week ago):
Difficulty walking - both legs are weak. More weakness in left leg where buttock pain exists. I was diagnosed with ALS in October 2013. I have arthritis and partially degenerated disc in lumbar spine. Have been experiencing the leg jerking, twitching and cramping in both legs since 2012. Weakness started in both legs early 2013 and has progressively gotten worse. Now I am having severe pain in left buttock that has been going on for about a month. I also have pain in neck and right arm due to cervical arthritis (severe) and several bulging discs. My jaw has TMJ, but now is worse. Both arms are starting to weaken too. I have been wondering if my spine problems could be the cause of ALS? Neurologists are not interested in exploring that possibility.
