plavix

In desperation of dealing with all of these odd and a bit scary symptoms I have turned to the internet and found you all! Thank God. Actually, I read several comments and LOL to find I wasn't the only one who had felt or is feeling "electric jolts in my head." sudden occasional nightmares and vivid dreams (like when I was a kid), lightheadedness and so on. Thank you all for helping me through the night. I feel much better.
He is now suffering from gerd and has had a number of heartattacks, the last was 6 years ago. His cronic pain Dr. says he does not think these are symptoms of methadone withdrawl. If he can get past the extreme leg pain(his major complaint)and the headaches he could probably deal. He is gaining large amounts of weight and his colesteral is finally down to 350 (from over 500). He is 5'5" and 180 lbs. I don't know what else these symptoms are from except the methadone.
If your mother is having having some kind of withdrawal symptoms, it is because of something else you are taking or lack thereof, not because of the Plavix.
of 06 I lost my job, my insurance and my pain medication. Withdrawal symptoms were terrible! I went through hell and survived only to find myself on the streets of Houston, (went there to beg my family for help, a place to stay and was turned down), jobless, homeless and absolutely no support from anyone or anything. I have been without any pain relief since Oct. 2006. I am tired of drinking 18 to twenty beers in the time that I'm awake just so I can sleep!
Number #2 I have recently been diagnosed with CVI (chronic vein insufficiency) by my doctor after I went in for thrombophlebitis and superficial blood clots (several varicosities) 6 months ago, he didn't want to do surgery because the % are low, so he has put me into a management program to treat the problem, I was put on plavix 75 mg X 2 day, amoxicillin ( for infection) Motrin 1200 mg a day (edema), carafate (protect stomach/intestines) and triazolam .
Do not stop using tramadol suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, sweating, nausea, diarrhea, tremors, chills, hallucinations, trouble sleeping, or breathing problems. Talk to your doctor about how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when stopping the medication. Do not crush the tramadol tablet. This medicine is for oral (by mouth) use only. Powder from a crushed tablet should not be inhaled or diluted with liquid and injected into the body.
p will spike high ( dont know the reason) but it happens! and you will have withdrawal symptoms - slight but there ! they always happen depending how long you were on the medication? and the doseage you took ! I had this happen to me ! the big problem is, most doctors in hmos or ppo plans -refuse to take people off this medication!
And then we went through my symptoms and added the new fun thing going on with my back and leg tendon system lately. Then he wrote out a referral to a team of Physiatrists (whom I went to once - not much they could do). I'll probably be set up with a new set of PT stretches to do every day I guess. But today, most importantly, I've finally and officially cut myself off from opiates. I'm done waltzing around with what is, to an addict like me, a very dangerous addiction with a bad ending.
I had a blood clot behind my left knee in 2003 without any warning or any symptoms. I was treated with Coumadin and the clot was eventually reabsorbed. In 2004 my left leg and left arm became weak and I was told that I had a stroke (or maybe a series of mini strokes). I was given physical therapy but the weakness NEVER improved. More often than not, with a stroke you do improve with physical therapy.
the 40mg long lasting would help if that was all I took, but it's not and I don't want to go into withdrawal prior to surgery? 2. I had a recent episode in the emergency room and none of the pain shots they were giving me ie morphine and fentnal? Gave any relief. The ER DR said my "receptacles were full" because of taking the oxycodone etc. So if the ER couldnt relieve my pain, what happens if i have surgery?
At first they put me on dilantin but I couldn't take it without profound side effects. I was put on plavix and lamictal but the seizures keep coming, however, each one is less than the other. With each seizure, I suffer short term memory loss. My memory eventually comes back but a little still remains lost. Also it seems that every time I've had one of these so-called seizures it comes early in the morning and after a night of stressful sleep and I feel a headache pain in my left temple.
Today marks 29 weeks and 2 days clean for me and never, not once, did I ever experience any cravings or most of the physical w/d symptoms that come with opiate withdrawal. Now if that's not a miracle I don't know what is.
At 120 days my preexisting issues really came back. If it's not caused by any of the drugs mentioned above, I would seem addiction counseling or CBT. You have a lot of progress so far, this is just one more thing toward more growth and self exploration. I hope you can calm down. When something is t working, try something new. Nothing changes if nothing changes. Congrats On 108 days.
sally, i've looked back at your post. Its difficult to tell what is causing your symptoms, given you have coronary disease. To simplify a angina classification to you: Stable angina refers to people with set blockages that cause flow limitation of blood with increasing demands such as exercise. Rest or nitro can relieve the symptoms. The symptoms are reproducible and do not vary or increase over long periods of time.
Since it's only been Day 2 for me, I am going to stick it out for at least a few more weeks to see if the symptoms subside. I used to take Lisinopril and I remember how awful it was for the first few weeks until my body adjusted to it. After that, I had no side effects except for the occasional bout of dizziness when my BP would drop too low.
is one of the listed side effects) so they can be a real help, but the extraordinary propensity of this class of drugs to cause addiction and troubling withdrawal symptoms makes it a double edged sword. I have taken BBs on a regular basis, and occasionally taken Benzos, for 20 years because I found they helped me when I had tachycardia.
fusion surgery, and now she's having the lumbar surgery, when she's able. She just had a heart stent, so she has to wait to be off Plavix, a blood thinner. My ortho surgeon says I will need lumbar surgery at some point,too, but who knows when? So, I am happy to have "Steaksgiving" for my mom! One year, she forgot to turn on the oven, and the turkey didn't get done, so we had steak instead!
While Ativan is a short-term fix, it is extremely addictive and the withdrawals are a nightmare even at small doses (they gave me Ativan in the ED and only 1/2 a mg once a day brought a torturous withdrawal because the anxiety symptoms came back full force for about three weeks until my system adapted to normal again). Do see your doctor as soon as possible to discuss a better anxiety remedy for the long term.
I saw another post about atrial fibrillation and stomach gas possible association or connection. I too have the same thing so it may not be all in your head if your suspect this to be the case. Most dr.'s think your crazy or never heard of this when you even suggest it. Thats whats wrong with most dr's atleast in my experience in that they don't think outside the box enough possibly because this is what they learned.
You might be having a rhythmic movement disorder, which more or less resembles the symptoms or even age related. Has your doctor done a sleep study? You need to continue the medication for couple of weeks as advised by your doctor and try to avoid trigger factors like alcohol, smoking and stress. It is better to consult a neurologist and get evaluated. Take care and updated on your thoughts and progress.
Now there are multiple masses and ulcerations in my throat and they are spreading up the very back of the tongue. The symptoms I have had are pain in my ears, pinched nerve feeling behind my eyes, the feeling of pressure in my sternum area, and no one to date feels comfortable enough to biopsy them. They have put me on a pure liquid diet because my food was getting stuck so bad.
