  • I too have hashimoto's and hydrocephalus
    I have been HYPOTHYROID since at least 18 years old, now 43, and last 2 years found out that I did test positive for Hashimotos and was told I have no thyroid left. When I was 26, I had visual disturbance and went to the ER. Was told by the neurologist that I had mild hydroencephaly, and may require a shunt. Due to lack of insurance, went years with no treatment or follow up. Now have numerous problems with Hashimotos/Hypothyroid and investigating the correlation between the Hydroencephaly and Hashimotos. Is this the only study of the two relations?
  • What should i expect taking zoloft and hydroxyzine? (1 answer)
    I take 25mg Zoloft for one more day and bump up to 50 mg. I also take 25mg Hydroxyzine Pamoate 3 times per day as needed. I've been on these for a week and feel worse than when I wasn't. My depressive state seems to be getting worse and the anxiety is through the roof. My home is where I felt OK but now I hate it. My skin is crawling and I feel like I want to tear it off and crawl out. Is this a normal side effect of these drugs? I am also diabetic and take several meds for that, don't know if that makes a difference.
  • I take klonopin and diltiazem (calcium channel blocker blood pressure medicine) and am concerned about side effects. my accupuncturist recommends the ashwagandha. anyone have any issues with this?
    I take these prescription medications but have been going to an accupuncturist since 2012. I have trouble sleeping at night without my clonazepam and take naps during the day and am having trouble losing weight. She thinks that my adrenal glands may be fatigued and told me to try something called Adrenal Response which contains Sensoril Ashwagandha. When I looked up Ashwaganda it said that it could interact with the Clonazepam or Klonopin and also with High blood pressure medication. I am a little concerned. I mentioned this to her and she said they both are metabolized by the liver and it should be ok to take it, just to take it an hour or more after I take the Clonazepam. Has anyone had any issues with interactions with their prescribed meds while taking Ashwagandha? I don't want to have to monitor my blood pressure because my blood pressure medication works good for me. Any help would be appreciated because I want to try it but I am a little scared too. Thanks, Crystal

  • Guttate psoriasis from implanon (contraceptive implant)
    I have suffered from mild Plaque Psoriasis on and off my whole life. It's never affected me too much and is usually is an inconspicuous place. I have only used hormone contraceptives once - when I was 16 I was on the pill.
    About 4 days after having Implanon put in, the point where it was inserted turned into Psoriasis as it was healing. There was a line of psoriasis travelling along the skin where the implant was as well as dots of Psoriasis all over my arm. Within a few days I had Psoriasis spots all over my body head to toe - the worst case I've ever had. It got worse on my arm and the implant area was unbearably itchy. I thought it may have been caused from something else and have just been waiting the last few weeks for it to improve but it has just got worse. I went to the doctor today to get the implant removed due to other side effects (loss of sex drive, mood swings etc) and she said I was having a major allergic reaction to the implant. She said she had never seen anything like it and will be reporting it. I'm sure there's a lot of people with a history of Psoriasis using Implanon without this side effect. When I initially searched the internet for any other cases I couldn't find any so I thought I'd put it out there. I've finally got the implant removed and will not be using hormone contraceptives again.
  • Interactions of rantidine 150 mg & theophylline 200mg taken in am
    I started taking 150mg rantidine with 200mg theophylline, and zyrtec in the morning before breakfast. Within 1 hour of taking my medications, even after eating, I found myself overwhelmed with anxiety, restlessness, the inability to think, and the feeling of dread.
    I initially started taking rantidine in the evening, an hour before bed time, and found that it did not cause such a strong reaction. I really believe that these medications, when taken together, can really cause an adverse reaction for a person. I mean, it did me.
  • Folic acid withdrawal
    I took folic acid 5 for more than 2 years after my past abortion, i continue it until 5 days before that i missed to buy it! Every day i feel worth until today that i ate it and after 2 hours i feel dramatically better!
  • Are you mental on methadone
    My doctor changed my pain medication back in May of 2014 . I was pleased with how well it handle my back pain and was pleased with how inexpensive it was. My husband had been using the same drug with great results. It wasn't until about a month later I started to notice just feelings of sadness. I didn't think too much of it but then I would get such strong feelings of despair really bad that I would just cry. I also started getting a lot of panic attacks I had so much anxiety at times it prevented me from doing things. At one point I really thought I was having some sort of break down, but the feelings would have highs and lows and sometimes I would have a day with out them. Eventually after being on them for 7 months I went to my doctor and asked if it were possible I was experiencing these feelings from the Methadone. He wasn't sure but with it all happening right after I started taking them he decided to put me on something else. It's been about three weeks and even though the feelings are still there they are not as strong and seem to be passing. I hope as time goes I will feel like myself again and hope never to have to experience something like that again.
  • Bcaa's and increased anxiety/panic attacks
    Six years ago I was hospitalized for severe panic disorder. After months of therapy I was prescribed Paxil and Zanax to control the disorder. I have been an athlete, mixed martial arts and weightlifting for over 20 years. Recently I decided to try BCAAs as a supplement to improve recovery after workouts. Bad idea! Bcaa's are reported to increase focus and can reduce serotonin. Sounds great, unless you have an anxiety disorder. Generally people with anxiety and/or panic disorders have a reduced amount or require more serotonin to maintain normal cognition "Perception".
    While taking BCAA's I had three major panic attacks, pinging and shocking in meridian points (symptoms are known as discontinuation syndrome from reducing or stopping SSRN medications that treat anxiety). Long story short...stay away from this rather benign supplement if you have anxiety issues, especially if they are severe!

  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • I am epileptic or was as a child. I have not had a seizure in about 3 - 4 years now. I recently went to have my implant changed. This is my third one. All of a suddeni am experiencing frequent déjà vus, headaches and my anxiety is growing.
    I eat incredibly healthily and exercise most days. No drugs, hardly any alcohol and a strong life.

    Realising that perhaps my implant may have something to do with this and I have just never realised it!
