Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Propranolo & pregabalin - do they produce heart troubles? my meds mix has
Being on zopiclone 75mg (sleep med) gave me terrible poly/firbomyalgia, which I was then prescrbed pregabalin to aleviate pains and anxiety, and the propranolo to help with the same. On day one of propranolo I had a medium heart attack like event, within 24hrs had a large attack and became hospitalised. But vital signs and chest xray, blood tests, then showed 'normal'. But since then have had several more (almost one or more a month) heart attacklike events, hospitalisation, etc, but still being told all 'normal'. But now I've met someone who has told me they had similar heart issues and were told professionally for years his vital signs were normal : he now has a tripple-heart-bypass. I keep being told the angina like symtoms I have are anxiety realted - "only". But when I look at the professional descriptions and illustrations of angina, and similar, I see I could have written and drawn those from my own experiences. Hellish! No where to turn to. So I'm stopping the meds now one by one in careful withdrawl - docs don't like it - but I'm convinced my meds are slowly degrading my overall health as they build up into a toxic soup in me. I started this withdrawly after I discovered that - officially - Pregabalin (a calcium ?minimiser) and Propranolol (a beta blocker) should not be taken together in case they cause heart malfunctions... shame my doctors didn't know that.... before they let me take them for 8 months!!!!!!

What medications will work well
I need my brain to stop at night. And stay asleep.
I have anxiety
Little grumpy at times and things bother me a lot. Easily nervious and worry about everything. Crying a lot I notice.
- I have cfs and have been treated for depression for years.will adderall replace the antidepressants ect that i'm taking now? (1 answer)
I have a long history of depression and anxiety disorder.I was recently diagnosed with CFS.Now that I know exactly what this disease entails,everything makes perfect sense.My physical symptoms,with the exception of increased debilitating pain over the last 2 years, I had come to accept as normal! Glandular pain,thunderstorm headaches,sweating and chills and pure exhaustion. I have an appointment with my psyciatrist in a week to discuss Adderall. My family doctor wants to try it because i've been on EVERY antidepressant,add ons ect. out there but nothing helps my sheer exhaustion.She's not very familiar with lamotragene and wants his opinion first.Nothing works for me and I truely believe that because of my history with depression,CFS has been overlooked.
My life has been a living hell. I have an 11yr old daughter,and i feel like i've been robbed of her childhood. Nothing else matters.I am divorced and because of my illness and lack of ability to look after her,I reserve every ounce of energy i have to spend with her. And even then....Mommy's always tired.This is not a life.I've isolated myself so much that all other relationships in my life i've let slip away.
I've decreased the wellbutrin and lamotrogene before I see my Doctor so hopefully there will be NO reason for him to start me on Adderall.I'm putting so much hope into this treatment. I've used stimulants in the past(ephedrine,bennies)and that's the only time I've ever felt human in the past 10 years.
I want this to work soooooo bad but i'm a little scared that I'm setting myself up for a fall.

- Patients having false positives while on remeron
I have had a few patients complain they are failing drug tests for Amphetamines while on remeron, and have claimed to have not used any type of Amphetamine or any (Mixed Salts). These patients are all or were on probation, parole, or under some stipulation. Iv realized most of these patients are taking another psych med. The list consists of insomnia meds such as Ambien(zolpidem), Sonata(zaleplon),Lunesta(eszopiclone). Also the Anti-Depressants Lexapro (escitalopram)and Prozac (fluoxetine). One of my patients was on Diazepam (Valium). I have switched medicines, particularly the Ambien, Lexapro, and Prozac have reversed the false negative. I prescribe many of my patients remeron. I'm a big believer in its effects on my patients moods and everyday depression. I have heard this happening before, but this was the first time I have ever had this happen to one of my own patients.(These were 5 separate patients in the span of 16 months) Of course none of these patients were criminalized based on lab results, but the issue still lies there. I know this is common for a lot of script meds to give false positives for narcotics. This is just obviously one I am putting out there. Let me know if anyone has experienced something similar.
- Michael my son died as a result of kolopin & ambien (5 responses)
My beautiful son to whom I depended upon took his Life by suicide on July 16, 2013. He had been struggling with a sleep disorder. It seemed to begin in his last year of high school 2010. Mike was very strong in mind and in body. He became a certified personal trainer. He encouraged everyone around him and all of his clients. How can someone so strong be so weak?
He had been heavily medicated by a sleep doctor, for years this doctor gave him different medicines and he began to show other heath impairments..I could not see so many things that are very clear to me now, I never saw the effect the drugs had on him. he was growing more tired and withdrawn. He knew so much about medicines that I thought he knew what was happening he and I both trusted the doctors. With each new problem that occurred there was always a new drug to try and along with it a new set of side effects. A new doctor was added to his care and this doctor right away gave an RX for Kolopin. He was already taking Ambien and the two dont seem to play well together. Mean while he was growing sicker and sicker. We constantly were going for this test or that test, never once did the sleep doctor ever think that the drugs being given were the cause of all of his distress.
At one point he was unable to keep food down and was throwing up every day. More test that always revealed the same result. No problem found. The visits to the sleep doctor were the same as well his condition was worsening and chronic. and yet never once did the sleep doctor ever give the drugs a second thought. The known side effects for both of these drugs were suicide for ages between 16 to 22. Until his death I never read about any of the products he was on.
On July 16, 2013 the day began with Mike not sleeping, he seemed angry, exhausted. he was getting ready to help us out at our office. Once there it seemed like nothing went his way and at one point got into argument with his dad, told me he hated him and decided to go into his office to talk to him. He began to cry, I had to leave for an appointment and I waved to him through a window. I could see him crying. He got up and just left our office. Later we would find that he called his pastor, his cousins and a friend all did not reply. One girl friend of his did, she told him to meet her for drinks he told her what happened and he needed to save money and needed to be at his training job shortly. Within a 15 minute span wrote us a suicide letter, drove off and shot himself. a few minutes after he did a passer bye called 911. They took him to the hospital. The police came to our office to inform us we need to get to the hospital. The shock of all shock.... He passed away 1:04 am on the 17 of July. I never thought I could be so lost and broken as I am. I miss you so much Michael!
- Zopiclone causing sweating and memory loss
Been on 10mg Zopivane for probably 5 - 10 years. In 2013 migrated to 15mg Zopiclone. Previously experienced hot flashes 3 times a week and in 2013 has increased to 3 to 5 times a night. Usually I have 3 hours sleep, then after midnight the flashed start. In the morning there are sopping wet clothes all around my bed. Doctor has prescribed a beta blocker to alleviate the sweats, but there is no change. Short term memory is poor - could the Z pill be causing this?
