Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • I have been told by my gastroenterologist that i have gastroparesis, what are my treatment options, if any?
    I've had a CT scan and a Gastric Emptying study completed. My stomach is only 35% emptied after 4 hours, it should be at least 90% empty at that point. I have a colonoscopy and esophagealendoscopy scheduled for the first week of the year. What are my treatment options at this point?
  • Does carbamazepine cause obesity?? please reply (1 answer)
    I am taking ZEN 100(Carbamazepine tablets) on advice of my doctor from JAN 2013, for my SEIZURES. Lately, my weight has increased by quite kilos, despite my diet remaining same.
    I want to confirm does prolonged use of this drug cause obesity.

    PLEASE REPLY IF EXPERIENCED THE SAME SIDE-EFFECTS OR KNOW ABOUT IT.

    Thanks
  • Has anything helped with muscle weakness/pain caused by carbamazepine? or any remedies?
    I have partial seizures that affects my right side. It's caused by having a brain tumor on the left side when I was younger that was removed. I'm taking 600mg of Carbamazepine a day.

    I have muscle weakness and pain on my right arm and leg a lot. There are times when I can't even pick up a water bottle with my right hand without feeling like I'm going to drop it. The pain almost feels like growing pains but I stopped growing 4 years ago.

    Has anyone had this and figured out things that helped like pain relievers, heat, cold, anything? Right now I just rest but it'd be nice to have something to actually help with the pain.
  • I stopped suffering from psoriasis when i started with epilepsy at the age of 32. could there be a reason for this?
    I would just like to hear from anyone who has both epilepsy and psoriasis to see if they have stopped with psoriasis after the epilepsy was triggered. My epilepsy was triggered at the age of 32 after taking amphetamine. I used to have outbreaks of psoriasis every 7 years but this stopped when the epilepsy was triggered. I wonder if there is a reason for this.
  • Could this drug cause periodontal bone loss, bone loss around teeth (4 answers)
    Do you suffer from periodontal bone loss or periodontal disease, or bone loss around teeth after taking this drug? Are your sodium levels low after taking this drug? I am a dentist and keep my teeth plaque free, but have had periodontal bone loss for which, I believe, must be drug related.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Been through three different rounds of Accutane with great success, then small red bumps return after a few months being off Accutane. Tried hormones (Yaz), antibiotics, and antilfungal meds but none successful as Accutane. After discontinuing Accutane in August, acne is now returning in December. Frustrated.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I've lost 65 lbs and all of my appetite during the last 12 months. I quit taking the Metformin 6 months ago and that hasn't changed anything. I've had a CT Scan and a Gastric Emptying Study done to confirm the diagnosis. I'm having a colonoscopy and an esphogealendoscopy in January to find any further cause of the damage.
