- Fibromyalgia & related health issues (3 responses)
Fibromyalgia dx after pregnancy of only child at 42/other dx followed and seem to be in conjunction. heart issues did not appear until after the use of fibro meds- cymbalta, lyrica, neurontin, and more. had 1 seizure believed to be related to seretonin syndrome/years and years of mistreatment by doctors. unable to recall how many docs and meds through the years. one other very significant issue- after tooth extraction had puncture to left maxillary sinus-after YEARS of neglect by docs, found max. & ethmoid sinus completely opaque on CAT scan. Had surgery. Now, years later, have mucous plug that sporadically comes out upon sneezing. Fairly recent CAT scan shows sinuses again completely opaque. Certain needs further attention, but basically afraid to go through surgery again. Also- may have had heart attack. ER visit said no, but shortly after, had abnormal ekg. Again, neglect from docs. Am now active advocate for fm/chronic pain patients. Disgusted by the whole lack of interest of medical community. Looking for answers through my own research to try to find a way to improve quality of life...
- Celexa, xanax and restoril combo caused an immediate onset of dementia in my 79 year old father (1 response)
My father has been on Celexa for years now. 2 months ago, my mother (his wife of 50 years) passed away. My father immediately had anxiety and sleeping problems that accompanied his anxiety. His doctor prescribed, on top of the Celexa, Restoril for sleep, and Xanax during the day. Over a period of 1 month, my father has become confused, wets himself, doesn't understand the concept of a phone call and hangs up on me while he is in mid-sentence.... cries in panic, doesn't understand conversations, forgets the day... All of the things a progressed Alzheimer's patient would show... but this, again, has all taken place in literally 2 weeks. NOW... he has increased his Xanax from .75 MG throughout the day to 1.5 MG throughout the day... Which is not that much from my own research. But then when I DID the research, it stated that this combo, as well as Xanax, in general, can increase your chances on developing dementia if you are over the age of 65.
I wanted to see if anyone else had experienced this sudden change in behavior, and also if it is reversable with the removal of these medications in his life...
Thank you, in advance.
