SUPPORT GROUP IN UNITED STATES!!!
Hi, the only support group that I've been able to find for people with insulinomas is located in the UK... just wondering if there is one in the US. I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!

- Ranitidine is bad juju
Used 3-5 times per week for about 1 1/2 years. Noticed:
shortness of breath
dryness - more so than usual
I quit taking it and felt much better within 2-3 days.
- Polyuria associated with zantac
I was prescribed Zantac 150mg before breakfast and before dinner. After two days, I felt tired and had polyuria (by weight change 650 mL). I had kidney pain so drank water with a tiny bit of salt. Felt very nauseous, but more water helped. Continued to sip water til kidney pain eased. Have discontinued Zantac. Kidneys stopped hurting after about 4 hours. Seem to be ok, now.
- Dilantin and interactions
I've taken Dilantin for over 40 years..seizure free for over 30 years..became hypothyroid 10 years ago..B12 deficient approximately 3 years ago and have had a benign arrhythmia for over 30 years. I take magnesium because it seems to hep the arrhythmia and vitamin d because mine is low normal.
- I got pneumonia while taking topamax, obvious correlation
I do not take all the medicines above all the time but I am using an implanted pump giving me less than 2mg of dilaudid per day, 75 mg effexor daily and usually buspar. Dr prescribed topamax within 4 days I was hospitalized with Pneumonia, stayed a week came home a week had a clear chest x ray and the next week I got it again and was hospitalized 9 days that time. I knew I had been on the med but could not remember the side effect that made me come off previously until i started it again 2 days ago and woke today with Pneumonia again. Last time my pulmonologist said that the med in combination with the antidepressant which is all I take right now relaxes me too much and it paralyzes my choking reflex causing aspiration of saliva and ultimately waking up sick as the bacteria laced fluid goes crazy in the moist conditions of the lungs.

Nikki on Feb, 5, 2015:
I am a 36 yr old female. 5'8 109lbs. I've battled anorexia since age 9. Up until I was on gabapentin I had no former heart problems. I was recently put on baclofen 5mg effexor 37.5 abilify 2.5 mg and was already taking gabapentin 300 3× daily. I had been diagnosed with thoracic cervical stenosis at c5 needing decompression surgery. The week before I had been scheduled for a breast biopsy which they cancelled because while taking the gabapentin alone I started having chest pains and the occasional fluttering in my chest. After taking my final dose the evening they started me on the three new meds I started feeling sick to my stomach, my internal temp rose,I was shaking and sweating. My heart started racing by 10:30pm. When I would try to sit up the headache I had was so severe the only relief came from laying my head down. By 2am I started having vision problems. Since that night I have palpitations daily and my bp has dropped from where it has sat for 13 yrs at 120/80 to 90/53. Hardly ever above 106/67. Sometimes when I have a sudden drop my heart will raise to 95-105 at rest. I am now currently on life watch event monitor as of last week. I stopped taking the abilify and the effexor and have been switched to zanaflex 10mg 3× daily and continuing with the gabapentin 300 3× daily but my condition seems to be worsening. Is it possible these medications are making my heart condition worse? And if so how do I approach my drs.(because I have 3 prescribing drs) to listen to my concerns. Im starting to become concerned if I stay on these meds what may happen. Thank you for your time and any input you may have
