  • Lasix with low blood pressure
    Hello My Medical Family,
    My mom has been in ICU for over a month now. She has been on lasix for over 6 years now and for two nights the hospital has not given her lasix. I can see her legs and arms puffy filled with liquids and it makes me so sad to see moms in this pain. Dr kept telling us that her blood pressure was too low for them to give her lasix but for the past 3 hrs her readings are 114/55. Im just so torn knowing that she has her own meds of lasix at home that i can bring to her. Can someone out there please help? So thankful to have a forum like this to express our concerns knowing they would be helped.

    Sincerely,
    Tony

  • Please tell me the name of any adjunct medicine (powerful) in addition to pyridostigmine for myasthenia gravis ?
    I am unmarried woman aged 33 years. I am suffering from congenital myasthenic syndrome or CMS and taking treatment from NIMHANS, Bangalore.

    My symptoms of congenital myasthenic syndrome are as fallows:-

    1. Drooping of both eyelids. no movement of both the eyeballs.

    2. No Respiratory problem, can breath easily.

    3. Little bit of swallowing and chewing problem.

    4. weakness in whole body

    5. No Double vision.

    6. Can see clearly.



    No one in my family has CMS or myasthenia gravis or no history in my family had CMS or myasthenia gravis.



    Now, I am taking Pyridostigmine bromide 60mg daily 5 tabs.

    From 2002, I was taking Corticosteriods 30mg daily for about 3-4 yrs. With Doctor’s advice, from 2005, I tapperdown Corticosteriods and with God’s Grace, now I completely stopped taking Corticosteriods.



    Three years back,for some days, I took Cellcept tabs and now, I stopped it completely. At present, in addition to Pyridostigmine bromide tablets, I will take Meganeuron OD Plus and Antoxyl Forte and Potklor syrup and Gravitor SR tabs. This four medicines I will take (as and when required) whenever I go outside or when there is more work or when there is more weakness.



    We are non-resident of Bangalore. Suddenly, my sister's marriage has been fixed and there is no time to go to Bangalore and consult NIMHANS and also ask for any more powerful adjunct medicine (powerful medicine/general medicine) other than the above four mentioned by me. I don't have any other diseases other than myasthenia gravis.



    Please tell me the name of any adjunct medicine (powerful medicine/general medicine) other than the above four mentioned by me,so that I will be very grateful to you.



    Waiting for your early reply

  • Is it bad to take levorphanol tartrate if i have liver damage caused by hep c
    I am receiving treatment from the V.A. in Los Angeles, Ca..

    Last summer the va started to hint at forcing me to be seen by there pain mngt. team. Also I was to start treatment for my hep c, it was just becomming active. I knew that the interferon would be just a little stressful for aprox; one year so I offered to do there (the pain clinic) plan with a happy heart just after my liver stuff was done. So I went to LA only to find that the liver lab spent just 2 minutes with me to tell me that since I'VE have to wait a new liver drug to be approved I must do the pain clinic. So in six weeks I went from 200mg (5x4 per day) of methidone to 40mg (1 tab x 4 per day), and in just one week it was Oxycodone 40mg x 4 per day to 0. And all of this isij happening my liver gets more serroscised.

  • Understanding and living with cancer
    After having one treatment of Gemzar, I had a severe reaction, which caused me to have many seizures. This caused me to developed PRES, which in turn has caused me to have brain damage.When I came out of my induced coma I did not know where I was, nor did I know who my family members were. I could not bathe myself, drive, my speech was broken, I could not add two plus two. I was not the woman I was before Gemzar treatment.Now I am unable to work, I am unable to live on my own, I must always be in the company of another person. I have lost my home and car and job due to this condition. I am currently in speech therapy and soon will start occupational therapy (which is VERY costly) This month marks the one year anniversary of this condition for me. I am making progress. I am able to bathe myself, I can do a little cooking, (although the first time I tried I caught the kitchen on fire a little), I am still living with my Mother , as she is my care taker, my nurse, my driver, my chef, my house cleaner. I currently receive disability. My student loans have gone into default. I could go on but I am depressing myself. I am, followed by my Oncologist every two months now.I want to share this information to anyone and everyone who can benefit from this information.

    Thank you, Chelette Williams, BA,MBA.
