  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I take 25 mg Atenolol and 250 mg magnesium citrate sometimes at same time. I was recently diagnosed with afib and had a TIA. Could combining atenolol and magnesium cause this. My doctors and pharmacist are aware I take both of these, but have made no comments about an interaction. I did find info on interactions on several different sites. Could I take these at different times of day with no interaction? Please respond.

  • I feel as if I have a lump in my throat, as if something hasn't been swallowed properly. THE LUMp is not present all the time but I am very aware of it when it's there.

    Is it safe to take magnesium citrate for constipation and zofran?
  • Is it bad to take levorphanol tartrate if i have liver damage caused by hep c
    I am receiving treatment from the V.A. in Los Angeles, Ca..

    Last summer the va started to hint at forcing me to be seen by there pain mngt. team. Also I was to start treatment for my hep c, it was just becomming active. I knew that the interferon would be just a little stressful for aprox; one year so I offered to do there (the pain clinic) plan with a happy heart just after my liver stuff was done. So I went to LA only to find that the liver lab spent just 2 minutes with me to tell me that since I'VE have to wait a new liver drug to be approved I must do the pain clinic. So in six weeks I went from 200mg (5x4 per day) of methidone to 40mg (1 tab x 4 per day), and in just one week it was Oxycodone 40mg x 4 per day to 0. And all of this isij happening my liver gets more serroscised.

  • Any success in treating symptoms of pmdd with wild yam root
    Hi All. A little over a year and a half ago, I was dx with Pre Menstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)and was prescribed YASMIN (YAZ) to treat the severe mood changes and suicidal thoughts I was getting 2 weeks out of every 4. The YASMIN worked brilliantly for 9 months and all the PMDD symptoms vanished. Great - Not!

    Month 10 on YASMIN saw me hospitalised from it with a DVT. I have since tested positive for the blood clotting disorder called Factor V Leiden which means I can no longer take any oestrogen based OCP. So my problem currently is that I have nightmarish PMDD and a Gynae/Shrink and GP all scratching their heads unable to find anything to treat me with. I should mention that I have been on all the SSRI's over the years for GAD so we know these prove ineffective for PMDD.

    I came across a vitamin supplement called WILD YAM ROOT that may help PMDD symptoms. Its the psychological torment I want to treat mainly. Bloating, cramping etc I can deal with. The anger, the hysterical bouts of crying, the suicidal thoughts etc I can't deal with and I am very very scared.

    I was wondering if anyone else out there suffering from PMDD has had any help by taking WILD YAM as I am at my wit's end with this disorder and would really appreciate replies from any ladies who have found WILD YAM worked for them or didn't work for them or any other drug/vitamin supplement that I could try. I am so scared of ending up in a Psych hospital for half of every month if this is left untreated. I'm sorry for writing so much and thank everyone who took the time to read this and offer any ideas.
