Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can gabapentin be taken with theanine?
Our adult son is 34 and his medical doctor is using Gabapentin for behaviors and anxiety. We (my husband and I) use Theanine for anxiety for ourselves. Our son is showing signs of anxiety and he is nonverbal. His behaviors go up when he is anxious and he also stops eating. We want to use the theanine with the gabapentin but his medical Dr. thinks its bologny. We certainly dont want to give him the theanine if there is an interaction with the gabapentin. We have talked with our pharmacist and he doesnt see that there could be a problem Our sons dr. had never even heard of "Theanine". Anyone have the answer to combining the two?
- Is it safe to take biotin and humira to gether?
I would like to add biotin to my daily med. schedule. I want to make sure there are no interactions
- What are interactions of gabapentin and statins (1 answer)
I would like to know if there are any known interactions between gabapentin and a statin drug.
- 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

- Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.
Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.
This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
- Acne while taking diflucan
I've been taking Diflucan for three weeks for an uncontrollably itchy rash across my entire chest. The itching is 100% better and the rash 75% better, however, I now have large, hard, cystic acne on my cheeks and chin and all across my jawline. I will take the Diflucan once more next week then report back on the acne. BTW I am 52 years old and occasionally take Allegra.
- Neurotin as an anabolic
Takave been taking anabolic steroids for about 6 weeks my games were linear unlock the entire time. When I started taking Neurontin with anabolic steroids my anabolism was increased by at least 30%. There was no change in diet or any other variables as far as I can tell. The only variable was the neurontin.it just so happens did my workout partner is taking Neurontin and getting the some effect. I know for a fact it affects the digestive system.
- Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
- Constant tiny pimples and worse after taking lantus
I finally made a connection to my skin issue. I have been using lantus for nearly 6 or so years now and I mostly always have some sort of raw acne on my face. I had it prior to Lantus as well, but it seemed it I could somewhat tell what set it off.
Anyhow, I recently had ran out and used Novolin 70/30 until the other came in. During the use my sugars were better and my skin seemed to clear up a bit. So, I get another bottle of Lantus and less than 1 week of use I had a blister on my foot and my face, all at once, was nearly covered in tiny rash-ish like tiny blisters. They don't clear up with acne medicine and there are at least 2 new ones every morning. I watch them develop throughout the day as well. I have kept using it bc I don't want to waste it and bc of this my face has stayed "blistery" and I feel infectious.
Whether it is related or not I also get very large, painful and destructive cysts on my face as well. I was told by my doctor that it looks like staff, but I never got them on my face before Lantus. Kind of makes a bit of a correlation to me.
Does anyone else experience these issues?
