Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I have been told by my gastroenterologist that i have gastroparesis, what are my treatment options, if any?
I've had a CT scan and a Gastric Emptying study completed. My stomach is only 35% emptied after 4 hours, it should be at least 90% empty at that point. I have a colonoscopy and esophagealendoscopy scheduled for the first week of the year. What are my treatment options at this point?
- Can i take garcinia cambogia while taking adderall, lithium, latuda
I would like to start taking Garcinia Cambogia diet supplement colon cleansing regimen but I don't know if I can on these medications or not. Please help?
- Latuda and back & joint pain
I started latuda three nights ago. The first night I had terrible nightmares and cried in my sleep the whole night. The next two nights I have just had vived dreams.I and am mentally doing a lot better but now am experiencing a lot of pain in my lower back , knees and feet. How do I deal with this and will it go away?
- I'm experiencing nocturnal leg cramps nightly since taking latuda. has anyone else experienced this? i've been on latuda for three months.
I exercise regularly (4x a week) for the past 10 years. It's mainly gym workouts and occasionally on the tennis court. Since taking latuda, I have experienced several painful leg cramps in both legs every night. I have increased water intake, magnesium, calcium and potassium from food and supplements. Nothing works. I've added a weekly massage and its the only relief. If I skip a week, the cramps come back.
- I have bipolar disorder and adhd and take nuvigil for the adhd and on occasion take lunesta for sleep. anybody else take this combination and what side effects or effects in general have you noticed? (1 answer)
I'm anxious about any untoward drug interactions. I can't take stimulants because of a history of abuse. I take Nuvgil for my ADHD and it's the first time I can concentraate in years! I can't believe how much easier it is to organize, get things done, and read. Plus it helps the chronic fatigue I suffer caued by stage 3 renal failure.
Anyone have anything or any experience that is remotely similar?

- Higher than a kite, and dumber than one of those saying i can no longer remember!
I told my shrink I didn't want to try anymore antidepressants... that they make me crazy-stupid(pristiq), crazy-nympho(wellbutrin), or crazy-sloth(lexapro). I have complex ptsd, did, and gad. I really don't want to take anything... I just want to work out, eat right, and try to put myself back on track. It seems like every time I try these pills I get pushed off course. Anyways here's my experience with pristiq. Day1) dilation ofpupils was noticed with in a few hours, it started to feel like I was on sshrooms....I'd look in the mirror and feel so much love...just stand there staring. I slept better than I did in months. Day 2) Sadly though, when I woke up I couldn't climax, it was like I was numb. My pupils were still dilated and I still felt an out pouring of love and admiration while looking at myself. I tried hard not to fixate and get ready for work. I noticed that my tummy wasn't bloated anymore, I hadn't felt this much releaf in months. As I took my daily 50mg I reassured myself that it was ok not to climax in favor of all the good things I'm feeling now. Pristiq didn't interfere with my routine other than climaxing. Day 3) I awoke well rested with a happy tummy and it didn't bother me a bit not to climax, I jumped out of bed and started my day with vigor. The moment I took my dose and left the house is the last thing I remember! From what I wrote in my calendar, the notes I took, and my phone history I can piece together the things I did for 7 more days!!! I went to work, but my coworker was on holidays so it was just me alone in the office, I have no family or friends in this country (I moved to get away from a bad situation, hence cptsd) anyways I had no interaction. The only thing that brought me out was probably that I stopped taking the medication on day7 (According to the amount of medication left)....it's taken 14 more days to get out of the pristiq fog. During that time I've experienced nightly vivid dreams/ nightmares, extreme sweating and high body temperature, my stomach discomfort fluctuates but I can control it through diet, I'm able to climax again though it takes time, my pupils returned to normal a few days after I returned to myself...I seem to have memory impairment.

On the 20th of August 2012 I fell downstairs and broke my left arm/shoulder and ribs. I also had many open cuts from my elbow to my wrist; the whole arm and hand was severely swollen; huge purple marks on arm thigh and chest. These have all healed. However the arm/shoulder has healed out of joint and the arm is limited in movement; the ribs have not healed. When I first broke it I couldn't lie down in bed. I had to try to sleep sitting in a chair, but I didn't sleep for several days. For several months, I only slept for 1 or 2 hours, sometimes not at all. Even now I only sleep for 2 or 3 hours. I have bone damage; stiffness and pains all over my body and muscles. I am dizzy and unbalanced. When I walk it feels like I am on a spring mattress and I have difficulty in lifting my legs When I stand still it feels like an earthquake. My neck is very weak; when I turn it to the left or right I have pain. My fingers hurt when I lift a mug of water. Tightness in upper left arm (arm is heavy) and is pulling on my back, neck and ribs and have a pain in the left-hand chest bone. I lost weight and cannot regain it, no matter how much I eat.
MARCH 14TH 2014- THE FOLOWING IS PART OF MY HORRIFIC PROBLEMS IN THE DAYTIME AND MAY HAVE COME FROM BRAIN DAMAGE WHEN I FELL DOWNSTAIRS
Today I am sitting in a chair in my room and I nod off and start dreaming/hallucinating. On the dream side, I am lying on the ground with many people around me. On the hallucination side, (which seems like I am half awake) I try to get up but after a tremendous struggle my muscles will not respond. It is terrifying. There are many people around and I'm trying to shout out “help” but I cannot speak properly. I'm speaking like someone who has had a stroke. I am semi-conscious of calling out but I can't wake up. The people around me are laughing at my predicament and do not help. I try many, many times to get up but it is like some force is holding me down. After a long time I crawl towards the gate of a house and go inside and see a bed. Then I try to get up on the bed and at that moment I wake up on the floor of my own room near my chair and my bed. On the hallucination side, I was actually feeling what was happening, even though the dream was in a different location. When I finally woke up, I was breathing like a man saved from disaster. It was a horrible experience and it has happened, in the past, twice before.
What kind of hallucination could this be?
I'm asking this advice because the doctors I've seen don't understand.
- Latuda i feel saved my life. it treats not only bipolar but depression too.. (1 response)
I've been suffering from bipolar/depression since I was in my late teens. I'm almost 30now. Anyways latuda by far is the best med I've ever been on. I currently take 80 mg a day at bedtime. No baggage side effects like other meds I've been on. Helps with my moods and my depression. Now instead of taking 2 pills for 2 diff conditions I take latuda for both. I suffer from extreme anxiety too, on meds for that. But since starting latuda I've discovered I don't need the anxiety meds as much as I use to. I feel sorry for the ones that don't have health insurance tho. With insurance it costs me 78$ a month, without insurance 800$ .... Pricy yes but well worth it...

While taking Cleocin for the past 3 days I've developed horrible hallucinations each night, as soon as I close my eyes when going to bed. I wake up every few minutes because they are terrifying.

I was prescribed Lyrica due to chronic pain. I was also prescribed a different pain med, as well as something to assist with sleeping through the pain. I am writing this to share my experience in hopes that others may avoid my difficulties. I began to forget whether I had taken my meds or not, that was the first thing that I noticed. I then began to lose time, I did not remember what I had done, and where I was. I did not want to admit that I was losing control of myself, as I am a proud individual. My wife has told me things that I did, or did not do while taking these meds, and I do not remember most of what she has told me. One night we were watching a movie, and sometime after it was over I began to inquire, "when are we going to watch this movie, are we going to watch it or not?" I drove places and had no recollection of doing so. I have never had issues like this with ANY meds. When I attempted to recall what I did, and where I was, in most case my recall was limited to flashes of what had transpired. I forgot to pick up my children from school, and tried to make excuses and cover it up. This medicine is not to be taken lightly. Do yourself a favor and avoid consumption if possible. I am not proud of this but I felt obligated to share this in the hope that it may help someone in the future....

16 hour drive. If the lights were on, all was fine, but if the lights were off and all there was the headlights, things would jump out of the shadows into the center vision. Robotic birds, women in brown cloaks, always rushing forward. there was screaming and ducking of the head the whole time and forgetting to be driving. Startled as if just waking up.
This type of experience is with 500-800mg of lyrica and only with a dark setting or eyes closed. Day time, shadows would appear in the peripheral zone of vision or audio disturbances such as echos.
