- How dangeros is shingles in 65 year old male and is it contageous
My freind is very sick, has not eaten in several days. Has large sores on his lower leg. Says he is in a lot of pain. He has not been to the doctor. I am very concearned about this.
- Does doxepin cause abdominal adhesions?
Have had adhesions and still taking doxepin. Need the doxepin, but worry about more adhesions
- Can nuvigil (vs adderall) be used simultaneously to help wean off 60mg/day of adderall? (1 answer)
I have been on Adderall 30mg 2x daily for years!! I've had it lowered to 20mg, I've TRIED to go months without it (when not working) however I feel I've built up a tolerance level to the point that it's not as effective as it once was. My personal life has detoured WAY past anything an ADHD medication can possibly help as far as focusing on NEEDED tasks etc. I end up feeling wrapped up in what I'm doing at the moment that my anxiety increases due to all that I haven't been able to accomplish. I take various medications for various reasons, depression, anxiety, bulimia etc., and for the most part the doses have varied based on circumstances and current need at said time of prescription.. MY FAMILY HAS A HISTORY OF HEART DISEASE, And realizing that I'm already on the highest Adderall dosage scares me (and THEN as I think about it, it makes my heart race!). I've also noticed increased muscle spasms as well as extreme and intense pressure on my jaw (TMJ). MY QUESTION IS: does anyone have any experience LOWERING their Adderall dosage AND adding Nuvigil? The research I've done to date gives me impression that it could help balance out the more extreme effects of Adderall (60mg/day) but that the nuvigil would or could potentially help with the EXTREME exhaustion I feel as Adderall wears off. Some days I just crash, some days I sleep fine and others no matter how hard I tryyyy, I just CAN'T fall asleep, therefore making the next day worse! IDEALLY I'D LIKE TO BE MED FREE, right now I need them, but am hoping maybe I can speak with my doctor to lower Adderall and add Nuvigil to help wean me off the amphetamines as well as lower dosage intake. YES, a lot of the anxiety, sleeplessness and depression are related to current circumstances in my life, however, where I am is not where I want to be or where I'm headed.. Life is a journey, and all my meds have become a part of a journey I never thought I'd find myself taking. I don't want life/meds to define me, or create a me I no longer recognize, because scarily enough that seems to be a common pattern. As I overcome each and every daily obstacle, I also don't want to be "hooked" on my meds or needing "more" to wake up/sleep/function.. I'd like to work on finding a solution towards weaning off my meds NOW, and work my way off slowly, primarily the Adderall. I'm hoping by suggesting to my doctor and showing him my research he may agree (IF ITS EVEN A LOGICAL COMBO, CLEARLY IM NOT A DOCTOR) nuvigil could help me. I've already started taking less of my anti depressants, trazadone and xanax without discussing with doc because he is always busy.. My next appt I want to go in fully prepared with a plan and an overall goal to REDUCE my Adderall dose, but overall, I'm clueless!!! I have no idea what other meds other than nuvigil "could" potentially help if at all. I could be entirely wrong, Anyone with any experience using one vs other or both simultaneously, or anyone with constructive input, PLEASE COMMENT/SHARE!!

- 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!
- Low potasium and mood
While being treated for cancer about 3 years ago and thus taking a number of blood tests, I was diagnosed with low potassium level and prescribed a regular dosage. I had noticed that when I forgot to take my potassium pills, I soon began to feel more depressed than usual and to feel anxious. Taking the ills soon alleviated these symptoms. (I have had depression for most of my life but long ago decided against taking any of the anti-depression Rx pills because I disliked their side effects, especially on my ability to think clearly.) Very recently I finally got around to looking on the Internet to see whether low potassium was associated with mood disorders _ and I found that it was. This site apparently didn't study anyone my age (I'm 78), so I decided to offer these comments. I have at least one grandchild who has been formally diagnosed with depression, and one who is ADHD. Before finding that the relationship of mood and low potassium was formally known, I had suggested to their parent in a low-key way that perhaps she and they should check with their doctors about their potassium levels. Now I'm quite sure that is something they and their doctors should consider. Meanwhile, I am glad to have found formal study of what had been to me only an anecdotal kind of belief that the two were linked. More importantly, in all my years of doctor visits, no doctor and no psychologist has ever mentioned this link to me. Therefore, I hope that somehow this link is brought more to the forefront of medical attention.
- Zoplicine /and /xanax taken together
I am wondering if zopocline is compatible with Xanax. I have taken the together and had no adverse effects. Has any had this experience?
- Lipitor and panic attack insomnia
My doctor put me on generic lipitor my triglycerides were slightly high 158 vs 150 goal and cholesterol not bad 128/28 although my ratio is bad. After less than a week on the medicine I woke up at 3 am wide awake and unable to calm down. I had anxiety issues several years go but have been off the meds for several years, I have a lot on my mind, aging parents and mother in law, kids in college that are struggling, my wife and I are 55 in corporate America, getting pushed aside, what to do in retirement, etc..but I was keeping it all together. I have incredibly anxious since that night. Still waking up at 3 am every night. Initially lots of thoughts about my loved ones dying. Thoughts about either my wife or I living alone, these thoughts have faded. None of the issues are on my mind but I get crazy anxious and cannot be alone. I am able to fall asleep, actually fall out really hard. Wake up every night at 3 and end up very anxious by noon. No appetite, lost more than 10 lbs in 10 days. On some meds to calm down and back on the anxiety meds. I believe the Lipitor triggered the attacks. I stopped the Lipitor immediately.
- Prednisone side effects (1 response)
Took this for 6 days, tapering at the end to treat a rash caused by a spider bite. The heartburn started on day 1 but the other symptoms didn't begin until day 4. None we're severe but they weren't fun either. The blurred vision was worst.

From this study (1 year ago):
Anxiety especially noticeable while attempting to sleep.
From this study (1 year ago):
I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibro Myalgia, Wilsons Syndrome and Hashimoto's Disease for 22 years. I suffered an injury to the pelvic floor this last summer and am now experiencing spikes in blood pressure, anxiety that awakens me suddenly from sleep and sets in shortly after breakfast and general non-specific depression. I am wondering if one or more of these meds might be causing these three symptoms or contributing to any of them. Thank you.
From this study (5 years ago):
Given savella for fibromyalgia. It worked for a few months until I became suicidal and it didnt help my pain at all anymore. Taking Vicodin 5/500 2x a day for over a year to quell the severe nerve pain so I can function. Had ophthalmoplegic migraine, face was numb, as was L arm and leg, couldnt see in L eye couldnt hear L ear, heart palpitations. After a brain CT, MRI and MRA found my brain is fine:) Every Dr. I've seen recently thinks I should decrease savella til I am off it, as it's probably causing heart problems and hypertension. So I am trying to very unsuccessfully. Having panic attacks now every few hours for DAYS where my resting heart rate is 200bpm and my blood pressure is 180/110. A Dr. prescribed ativan, it helps until about 6 hours after I take it. My nerve pain is absolutely unbearable right now but I'm scared to take the vicodin I've relied on with the ativan, I'm sure two depressant drugs mixed are bad, but I'm crying in pain as I type this and the savella and vicodin withdrawal is hell. PLEASE READ PATIENT INFORMATION WHEN YOU TAKE MEDICATION. Not all doctors are perfect and because I was and am in so much pain I must endure more because my body is addicted to what I needed to function. Considering detoxing in an inpatient facility as although I never abused my prescriptions, feeling as though you will die at any moment really sucks. I have gone through detox processes of cymbalta, lyrica, and many years ago, heroin and amphetamines. This is so much worse and I hope savella gets banned in the US like it already is in Europe. My advice to anyone taking savella is TELL YOUR DOCTOR TO CHECK YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE AND HEART RATE FREQUENTLY. Is having a heart attack or stroke worth pain relief? It was for me until recently. Now I choose pain over death. I love my life too much to have it ended by a medication. Peace
