Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Bipolar 2 since 1975. recently d/c'd lithium. looking for a treatment that will not make glaucoma condition worse
I am trying to determine which medication to use now that my 40 year successful run with Lithium is over. (The kdneys say it's time to quit). However, I do not want to increase intraocular pressure by using a medication known to increase said pressure. Most importantly, I do not want to lose my livelihood or cause my family and friends unforeseen difficulty due to ineffective medications. I have little faith in the alternatives and see Depakote, Geodon, and Lamictal as poor seconds at
best. Any suggestions???
- Is there a link between forteo and macular holes?
My 82 year old mother has osteoporosis and was taking Forteo for several years (stopped taking aprox. 2 1/2 years ago) She also has Glaucoma. She recently developed a macular hole and just had surgery to correct it. Is there any link between Forteo and macular holes or other vision problems? We are concerned that her other eye will develop a macular hole at some point, and want to investigate the possible connection between her osteoporosis and the taking of Forteo and her severe vision issues.
- Should a 66-year-old with paroxysmal atrial tachycardia (pat) take herceptin for 6 months instread of 12 months?
My concern is the potential for cardiac damage from taking Herceptin. The research on Herceptin for highly HER2 positive breast cancer seems less than clear that 12 months of treatment has truly significant benefit over 6 months. With a pre-existing heart condition of PAT (rx metoprolol) and also high blood pressure (rx losartan) would it be more prudent to limit the Herceptin to 6 mos?
- Can l-glutamine make controlled glaucoma worse
I need to know how much l-glutamine to take (powder form). I have IBS and Glaucoma (controlled by Travatan)
- Can lisinopril make open angle glaucoma worse
i take several drugs and have found out my open angle glaucoma is getting
worse, i would like to know if any of my medications cause it. thank you

- Cardiac stress test (thalamine ) and oxycodone
I am writing this for my sister-in-law, Maria, who is not able to do so and for whom my husband, her brother, and I are the POAs. In May of 2012, Maria had a recurring pain in her leg which took her to the hospital again. She was diagnosed for a second time as having a strained muscle. Then the hospital asked her if she had any chest pain. With her severe migraines she often has pain or feels like she has pain everywhere. The hospital asked her caregiver if she could have a chemical (thalamine) stress test as she could not stand for a regular stress test. Her caregiver thought that since her foot doctor had said that eventually they needed to know if she could withstand a foot operation she needed that a chemical stress test would be needed at some point. So her caregiver said to go ahead with the chemical stress test. The hospital apparently did not check her meds and her dehydrated condition upon entering the hospital or perhaps they would have thought twice about administering the test. She passed the cardiac part of the test but was rendered quite confused and unresponsive. She could not go home in that condition so was transferred to a skilled nursing facility where they could deal with what was nearly a catatonic state. There she displayed extreme confusion and inability to take care of herself in any way. She had to be hand-fed for a week or so. It was as if she had had a stroke. The hospital said tests for stroke had been inconclusive. It took her three months to recover to some semblance of her old self and another 3-4 months to be "there" and present in all ways. She still exhibits confusion from time to time but had shown some of that before her stress test. She had had a stroke in 2003 and it did leave her with some mobility problems as well as confusion sometimes.. Later we learned a friend of ours' husband had had the identical stress test in the same hospital and he also was taking oxycodone for a sore knee. He came out of that test nearly catatonic as well. So why is this not in the literature? Do no harm is a doctor's first charge.
