- I have had the history of seizures, kidney stones, high blood pressure and migraine headaches. i am soon going back to school and need something to help with memory . what is best to help in this way
Not sure what I am suppose to write here. My mind is never clear and it feels as if there is swelling that keeps me from wanting to learn or work. Taking IBprofen helps take some of the swelling away but not all.
- Why when i have a migraine i feel the need to eat more and more? (2 answers)
Can someone please help me why when I get a migraine I have the need for excessive eating? I get the feeling that if I eat more I will feel better. I am now 43 years old woman and my migraines the last three years get worse and worse. Both more intense and more often ( like twice or even three times a week). I am on Effexor that is treating depression 75mg per day. Can someone advise me what can I do? I feel so much helpless and frustrated as my quality of life has deterioted so much.
- Can meclizine cause insomnia once and sleepiness the next time
I took Meclizine one night (as advised by pharmacist; she said it causes drowsiness), after experiencing my first attack of vertigo. It kept me awake almost all night. A couple weeks later, as I was getting ready for a special school event for my daughter, I thought another vertigo attack was coming on. Since the Meclizine didn't make me sleepy the first time but instead had the opposite effect, I thought it would be ok to take it (this was an evening event with a meal). After eating, I began to get very sleepy and my face almost fell in my plate.
- Alprazolam & amoxicillin
Have Diverticulitis from having Diverticulosis. Have had high blood pressure for
about 4 years and it is controlled with the Norvasc & Clonidine. Enlarged prostate is controlled with Flomax & Avodart. Meclizine is for vertigo, take 2 25mg per day, 1 Am & 1 PM. Take 1 Norvasc AM & 1 Flomax PM.
- Why would doctor prescribe meclizine when otc med available? stronger?
Gastric bypass. After years found should not be prescribed extended release medications-- they do not work because stomach (duodenum) releases enzymes and acids to release XR. Suffer from GAD, MAD, PTSD, ADHD, Insomnia. I've driven away my best friend-- I'm tired of life-- alone.

- Imetrix verses butalb/acet/caffeine
I have taken both Imitrex and Butalb/acet/caffeine and I have to say that Imitrex works far better than the other one! The substitute I was given for Imitrex doesn't even touch my migraine pain.
- Wheezing stopped after topamax sessesion
Wheezing noted by primary physician in this non-smoker. Stopped Topamax per doctor's instruction. 48 hours later was examined by physician and noted that wheezing stopped.
- Review: could lyrica cause intracranial pressure increased?
One dose (75mg) caused severe head pain (increased intracranial pressure) and nausea.
- Bad side effect of melatonin/imitrex use together
I have taken melatonin for insomnia I've been experiencing recently (not a chronic condition). I haven't had any problems or interactions with my other regular medications while using the melatonin, other than drowsiness in the morning. Last night I had a migraine at bedtime, so took 50 mg. of imitrex, my usual dose for one. Since I haven't had one during the period I've been taking the melatonin I feel fairly confident in assuming that my symptoms were a result of the combination.
I was awoken--thank god!--by choking on my own saliva and almost vomiting. I was able to go back to sleep--lying on my side to avoid aspirating anything--and was awoken again several hours later while I was wetting the bed!!! Incontinence has never been an issue for me (well, not since I was 3, I imagine) and I was really shocked. Although I immediately got up to clean the bed, I was so sleepy that I got back in (on the dry side :) and slept for another 4 hours.
Although, as I mentioned, I think it's likely that the problem was the result of an interaction with the Imitrex, which has a soporific effect, I'll stop using the melatonin to be safe!
- My reaction to talking sumatriptan for the first time.
after 10 minutes of taking the sumatriptan tablet i got all of the symptoms i stated and from those i developed a rare movement disorder called 'Dystonia' that has affected my right foot making me unable to walk and my right hand making me unable to write.
