  • Is it safe to take garcinia cambogia when taking levothyroxine?
    I want to lose 30 pounds by adding garcinia cambogia to my daily intake.
  • I developed excessive saliva production after starting ropinerole (requip) for plmd. sleep was impossible due to frequent swallowing. has anyone else experienced similar symptoms? (1 answer)
    The first 5 drugs above on my list that I tried for PLMD, I no longer use. I took ropinerole (Requip) for about 2 weeks when I noticed that I was producing more saliva and was swallowing a lot. It didn't really bother me too much, because the other drugs that I take give me a dry mouth. When I went to bed, trying to get to sleep was impossible, I had to swallow every 10 – 15 seconds all night long. My doctor investigated and found that only 1% of patients develop this symptom, lucky me. I discontinued using it. The symptom went away, and then came back even after I had stopped taking the drug for over 1 month. Has anyone else experienced this over-production of saliva during and/or after discontinuing ropinerole (Requip)? And if so, how long did it last and what can be done about it? It is disturbing my sleep so much that it of itself has become a sleep disorder. Any suggestions?
  • Can pravastatin and metformin cause meibomianitis
    In June I was taken off zetia and put on pravachol along with metformin. Within 2 weeks of taking these new drugs I developed meibomianitis. I have taken synthroid for years with no problems so I don't think that drug would have caused this. I cannot get rid of this eye condition and have been to the optomologist twice. I have worn contacts for 35 years and have never had any problems with my eyes or this type of condition. I have developed eye redness, pasted shut eyes in the morning along with thick gunk in them. I also have terrible dry eye at night and using artificial tears does not help. I use warm compresses on my eyes twice a day and it seems after three months the gunk in my eyes is getting better but not by much. Can these two new drugs have been the cause of my eye problem.

  • Can i take garcinia cambogia while taking paxil and synthroid? (5 answers)

    I've suffered from depression and generalized anxiety most of my life never understanding what was wrong with me.! 10 years ago an internist doctor prescribed -Effexor-. It helped a little, not much

    Two years ago after a -Parathyroid surgery- and ovary surgery, started menopause.

    Different doctors gave me medications, didn't know they all were for depression

    It's a miracle that I'm still alive -literally-. Currently taking Paxil and Synthroid. Can I start taking Garcinia Cambogia and Royal Jelly without drug interaction? I put on about 40 lb. in the 2 years of "Literally Hell that I went through.

    Even with medication, still struggling with anxiety and depression.!

    Thank you for all your help!!!.- Eloise
  • Can viibryd cause a itchy rash or stevens-johnson syndrome? (1 answer)
    I have had mild anxiety and depression for several years, but in the last 4 months, they became severe. I started getting small rashes (or hives), which on different parts of my body and last about 30 -45 minutes (sometimes less). My family doctor thinks could be a result of anxiety. My family doctor took me off of Klonopin (which was not helping at all) and tried me on Xanax (which did not help me at all). Next, he put me on Valium, and it helps my anxiety some. Because my anxiety & depression were not improving much, my family doctor referred me to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist took me off of Lexapro and onto Viibryd, which I've been taking for 10 days now. Unfortunately, the rash is showing up more frequently now, and it covers a larger part of my body. I started taking Benadryl and using hydrocortisone cream to help with the itching, but it comes back every day, mostly at night. I wondered if it was caused by my laundry detergent, so I changed detergents, but the rash still returns, but, like I said before, it only lasts for about 30 minutes and doesn't cover my whole body. Sometimes it shows up on my legs, other times on my back, other times on my stomach, and other times on my arms. Do you have any insight into this? I've heard of Stevens Johnson Syndrome; however, it presents itself differently than I've read. HELP PLEASE!

  • Can premarin cause dizziness?
    I have been on the blood pressure drugs for a few years, so I doubt my dizziness is a result of those. Ive been on premarin cream for just a week or two and I have marked dizziness, especially during and after activity. Its sometimes accompanied by shortness of breath and tachycardia. Can this be the premarin? Should I lower my dose?

  • Levothyroxine or synthroid makes me dizzy (1 answer)
    I stopped taking synthroid and levothyroxine because I couldn't tolerate dizzy spells even when I was driving the car or in class and in the middle of the night holding on the wall to go to the bathroom. I couldn't tolerate nauseous which cause me fainting or dizzy spells. Too frightened to continued vomiting. After I stopped taking synthroid and levothyroxine, I started taking supplements for my thyroid. I will see an endocrinologist. I already spoke to my PCP doctor, he still insisted that my thyroid is causing the side effects. I am the one who is taking it everyday for the past year and that medicine was hurting me and I know what I am talking about. After I stopped taking it, my hypothyroidism returned, BUT no nauseousness, no more dizzy or fainting spells and no more vomiting. How do you explain that? It is those medicine that is hurting, not my thyroid. The only symptom that I know of returns is sensitivity to cold. Also, Allegra, Loratadine and Klonopin never have caused me any problems, just a few side effects. They did not give me the worst like synthroid and levothyroxine. synthroid and levothyroxine are dangerous to me, but I need help with my thyroid.
  • I had a throidectomy and now take levothyroxine daily, i'm wondering if there is a negative impact if i start taking green bean coffee extract as well?
    I took 2 green coffee bean extract tablets 1/2 hour before eating breakfast and noticed I became very shaky, with hand tremors about an hour later. I was wondering if I CAN take this extract? Maybe I need to wait 4 or more hours after taking my levothyroxine? Will this green coffee bean extract interfere with the purpose of the levothyroxine?
  • How long does it take to get rid of high triglycerides levels from cortisone shots
    Hello, five months ago I went to my Cardiologist and my cholesterol levels were very good, today I got my lab test results and my Doctor said my LDL is 265 and need to bring it down. I went home and I started research on it and found out that taking shots of cortisone could raise your LDL levels, now... 4 months ago I started a treatment of cortisone shots on my foot because of a spur, could that be the cause of my raised cholesterol??. Thank you very much.
