Anyone ever have strange feelings like crawling skin .. Feels like bugs are crawling across your face and arms?
Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Is there a drug interaction between paxil and flexeril?
What is the drug interaction, if any between paxil and flexeril? I was taken off a low dosage of paxil two weeks or so ago an due to back issues was issued flexeril for spasms and pain. I try to avoid meds like this but really need it and wanted to know if it was safe. I read about major drug interaction between these two medications and that is why I suffered through pain because I was concerned. Please advise if I can take flexeril now.

- Severe insomnia and anxiety/panic attacks
I was prescribed Augmentin for a sore throat. The doctor did not do a Strep test to determine if I had a bacterial or viral infection. She must have assumed bacterial. For three nights I had severe insomnia. I was only able to get about 2 hours sleep every night during a maximum of about 20 minutes per sleep session. I didn't realize that Augmentin was the cause. My sleeping environment was perfect for sleep except I would lie there awake. Eventually panic would set in if some nasal congestion or stoppage manifested itself. I'd jump out of bed and turn on the light. If I could not get relief, I found myself walking through my darkened house turning on lights. But nothing seemed to calm the situation. I also had severe panic or anxiety attacks. I had to escape darkened rooms at night. I could not sit still throughout the day. I felt jumpy, terribly fatigued, unable to focus, and anxious. I stopped taking Augmentin and I finally was able to get almost seven hours of sleep although I did wake four times during that period due to congestion. After some local remedies, I was able to fall back asleep. The anxiety attacks have stopped. I can now focus again and have some energy to read or do work. For completeness, I took Augmentin three years as prescribed by my oral surgeon when he had to remove a tooth. I did not experience insomnia or anxiety/panic attacks on that occasion.
- Diphenhydramine and mental acuity
For at least 10 years, I have taken diphenhydramine 50 mg. at bedtime for insomnia and allergies. The results have been that I sleep well with no hangover or any cognitive impairment. If I experience vertigo from allergies, I may take an additional 50 mg. but never exceeding 100 mg in a 24 hour period.
After reading the report regarding an Alzheimer's study finding that after taking as little as 4mg diphenhydramine daily for more than 3 years, dementia rates were high.
I stopped the diphenhydramine one night. I experienced symptoms of deep brain pulsating pain and severe insomnia. After 4 hours, I took 50 mg diphenhydramine and slept very well. The next night I took 37.5 mg. diphenhydramine, slept very well. However, some of my tasks require layers of mental challenges in which I became slower.
My question is how did the study recipients obtain 4 mg doses of diphenhydramine when the standard over-the-counter (OTC) availability in tablets is 25 mg? How reliable is the information submitted from the study subjects? What manufacturer's diphendramine was used, or were there several?
I felt sharper mentally when on 50 mg daily than so far on 37.5 mg.
- Dymista gave me insomnia and nightmares
I have been taking Dymista for two weeks and it is fantastic for clearing up allergy symptoms. However, for the past two weeks I have had an extremely hard time trying to fall asleep; it is like I have insomnia. When I do fall asleep which usually last around an hour or so either day or night I have very vivid nightmares
- Took buspirone once and got a blister
Took Buspirone 5mg once and a few minutes later felt a bubble on my lip. The next morning I check and sure enough it's a blister on my top lip. Called a nurse and she said I had an allergic reaction.
- Lyrica is giving me nightmares
I have fibromyalgia and a history of being allergic to or very sensitive to medications
But Lyrica is really causing me some nightmares,sleepless nights, weight gain, headaches. I love that in the beginning I was able to get relief from fibromyalgia . It only made me really dizzy and disoriented on it. Now with theses symptoms I will definitely have to give it up. I can't seem to get any relief from this pain. I am so allergic to meds this is frustrating and miserable that meds make it worse.

From this study (2 years ago):
I am on these medications and last week my throat started to get a little sore. I thought nothing of it since its winter here.then for the past 2 days my tongue has been swollen and has like little bumps on it. My mouth and throat hurt so bad that i can not eat because it causes so much pain and can only drink water. I had a nose bleed yesterday as well. I was tested for stds last month because i delivered a child. All negative and i am married and in a monogomous relationship so im not worried about STD's. I also on the insidw of my top lip jave little white blisters. It feel dry up there as well. Is this an allergic reaction to the suboxone? Im kind of freaking out.
Could any of these drugs cause rise in glucose levels?
I went to the hospital that I previously have had stroke/aneurysm coiling, active aneurysm in my neck. Have gone to same hospital when I had 3 TIA's. I have been taking Paxil and Xanax for 23 years. Could not find a PCP as I am a cash paying customer with no insurance. (My PCP retired.) Ran out of my medication (Paxil and Xanax), tried for a week to find new PCP to become established. No luck. After 5 days, I began vomiting and thinking suicidal thoughts (to me - normal for coming off 60 mg of Paxil in 5 days.) I explained to ER intake my symptoms and thoughts, told them I googled "Quick and Painless ways to die". She stopped listening as I also stated that I ALSO googled how long suicidal thoughts last after coming off Paxil cold turkey. I was there for HELP. What happened next is the most terrifying thing that has ever happened to me. I began a tirade that lasted hours. Using the most horrendous names you could think of... (Mel Gibson type tirade) at staff. Engaging them in aggressive behavior, calling names, spitting, screaming obscenities as loud as I could, thrusting my pelvis in the air, slapping it yelling that if they had to watch me then they were trying to watch my crotch and here it is... I AM NOT THIS KIND OF PERSON. Referring to an African American nurse as a mf'ing black, c*%k sucking whore, etc. They decided to restrain me. At this point, I begin to loose recollection of what happened. The last memory I have is that my boyfriend of 11 years KNEW something ELSE was wrong and he decided to take me to another hospital and he would NOT let me harm myself. NO! They called security, at our request, to help us out of there. They came and my boyfriend became aggressive with security. They asked if we wanted police. We said YES. I am convinced that they caused me to have a stroke. The last thing is screaming to my bf to go home, I loved him and did NOT want him in jail. I lay in that hospital, apparently until the next afternoon when they transported me to a mental institution. I have no recollection of leaving the hospital, the ambulance ride there. I slightly remember a couple of speed bumps going into facility. When I arrived the only thing I remember is ripping up paperwork when they told me where I was and crawling into bed. I vaguely remember them calling for meals but I gave an I'll be there in a minute, or I'll go to the next one answer. Apparently, I had been sleeping for three days. Remember being awakened to take pills but no one ever checked on me. I KNOW I HAD A STROKE. Is there any test to tell if a person has recently had a stroke?? Thank you very much.
