Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I'm looking for peope who have been or are on pantoprazole and who developed (severe) cyclic neutropenia
I started taking PantoPrazole 20 mg (once a day) some 10 years ago and was told 2 years later that I had to switch to Pantoprazole 40 mg (once a day). Since I've been taking Pantoprazole my neutrofile counts which were in de standard forks started to drop, slowly with the 20 mg version, steeply with the 40 mg version
For the last 2 years my percentage of neutrofiles has gradually dropped to percentages in the 1 to 15 % fork
I have cyclic neutropenia and my bone marrow is tentatively linked to Large Granuar Lymphocyte Syndrome. To fight that I've been on varying dosages of Cyclosporine (Neoral) - no significant influence on my neutrofile count after 3 months.
Because of the apparently low influence f Cyclosporine - after 3 months of high dosages my neutrofile counts still bounces between 1 and 10 %. That and the fact that Cyclosporine may have a lot of (some severe) side effects on you I'm in doubt what to do next, e.g. stop taking the Cyclosporine & stop taking the Pantoprazole mg and replace the latter with Ranitidine MAE 300 m and see if the non intake of Pantoprazole has any effect on my Neutrofile count.
Any help/suggestions re. the above would be gratefully welcome
- I too have hashimoto's and hydrocephalus
I have been HYPOTHYROID since at least 18 years old, now 43, and last 2 years found out that I did test positive for Hashimotos and was told I have no thyroid left. When I was 26, I had visual disturbance and went to the ER. Was told by the neurologist that I had mild hydroencephaly, and may require a shunt. Due to lack of insurance, went years with no treatment or follow up. Now have numerous problems with Hashimotos/Hypothyroid and investigating the correlation between the Hydroencephaly and Hashimotos. Is this the only study of the two relations?
- Has anyone taken brags vinegar with protonix ? was there any problem?
I am wanting to see about taking magnesium once a day for blood pressure. I was wondering if anyone does that? Also has anyone tried taking Braggs apple vingear while on protonix. How did it go? Or have you replaced protonix with Braggs apple cider vinegar. Lastly has anyone weaned off protonix? How did you do it?
- Does anyone taking isosorbide or ranexa have severe nightmares?
I have horribly, terrifying nightmares, every night. They are all variations on a theme of terror.
- What should i expect taking zoloft and hydroxyzine? (1 answer)
I take 25mg Zoloft for one more day and bump up to 50 mg. I also take 25mg Hydroxyzine Pamoate 3 times per day as needed. I've been on these for a week and feel worse than when I wasn't. My depressive state seems to be getting worse and the anxiety is through the roof. My home is where I felt OK but now I hate it. My skin is crawling and I feel like I want to tear it off and crawl out. Is this a normal side effect of these drugs? I am also diabetic and take several meds for that, don't know if that makes a difference.

- Interactions of rantidine 150 mg & theophylline 200mg taken in am
I started taking 150mg rantidine with 200mg theophylline, and zyrtec in the morning before breakfast. Within 1 hour of taking my medications, even after eating, I found myself overwhelmed with anxiety, restlessness, the inability to think, and the feeling of dread.
I initially started taking rantidine in the evening, an hour before bed time, and found that it did not cause such a strong reaction. I really believe that these medications, when taken together, can really cause an adverse reaction for a person. I mean, it did me.
- Folic acid withdrawal
I took folic acid 5 for more than 2 years after my past abortion, i continue it until 5 days before that i missed to buy it! Every day i feel worth until today that i ate it and after 2 hours i feel dramatically better!
- Are you mental on methadone
My doctor changed my pain medication back in May of 2014 . I was pleased with how well it handle my back pain and was pleased with how inexpensive it was. My husband had been using the same drug with great results. It wasn't until about a month later I started to notice just feelings of sadness. I didn't think too much of it but then I would get such strong feelings of despair really bad that I would just cry. I also started getting a lot of panic attacks I had so much anxiety at times it prevented me from doing things. At one point I really thought I was having some sort of break down, but the feelings would have highs and lows and sometimes I would have a day with out them. Eventually after being on them for 7 months I went to my doctor and asked if it were possible I was experiencing these feelings from the Methadone. He wasn't sure but with it all happening right after I started taking them he decided to put me on something else. It's been about three weeks and even though the feelings are still there they are not as strong and seem to be passing. I hope as time goes I will feel like myself again and hope never to have to experience something like that again.

- Bcaa's and increased anxiety/panic attacks
Six years ago I was hospitalized for severe panic disorder. After months of therapy I was prescribed Paxil and Zanax to control the disorder. I have been an athlete, mixed martial arts and weightlifting for over 20 years. Recently I decided to try BCAAs as a supplement to improve recovery after workouts. Bad idea! Bcaa's are reported to increase focus and can reduce serotonin. Sounds great, unless you have an anxiety disorder. Generally people with anxiety and/or panic disorders have a reduced amount or require more serotonin to maintain normal cognition "Perception".
While taking BCAA's I had three major panic attacks, pinging and shocking in meridian points (symptoms are known as discontinuation syndrome from reducing or stopping SSRN medications that treat anxiety). Long story short...stay away from this rather benign supplement if you have anxiety issues, especially if they are severe!
