i thought it was the other medication ( citalopram) so i didn't take that and i took the ranitidine, within 30 min of taking i had more and more problems breathing, i felt like i was suffocating. i rang my doctor as i didn't know what to do and she put me through as she could tell i couldn't breathe even through she couldn't understand me. By the time the ambulance arrived my lips and neck has swollen, i could barely say a word let alone a sentence.
I was already taking Oxy, naproxen, flexaril, emtec, ranitidine, xenical and sometimes Arbil and Tylenol, does anyone know if these are all ok together? Thanks!
I am physically exhausted most days I still have 10-15 diareah a day, and I am now having swelling of my feet and hands and muscle cramps in my legs and joint pain in my shoulders. Before I got sick I walked 10 miles a day now I have to rest after getting the mail. The imodium cramps my stomach and the anti cramp drug knocks me out . are these side effects of these drugs ? will they dissapate? do I need to see another DR.?
Husband has spells where he gets a build up of sinus drainage, then starts coughing very deeply, he turns bright red and passes out and shakes like he is having ceasures.

(uses 4 times a day with the albeuterol) , also has proventil rescue inhaler, and a ton of different medications.
Latest developments are that my doctor has put me on 4 week course of citalopram 10mg, and reluctantly diagnosed me with IBS. I'm not 100% convinced. Had adverse reaction to meds within first 2 weeks. Couldn't take nausea feeling after week 3 so stopped taking. Nausea was and still is consistent whilst taking citalopram or not. Chest pains feel they are related to nerve pain? Can feel sharp tingley pain similar to that of a pinched nerve in lft arm...
also, i have been in counselling for quite a while. i am taking celexa (citalopram?), and have been for over two years. i don't know if that is a contributing factor to the stomach problem. i had blood tests last month for feeling generally ill and they came back normal. maybe the new test will show something different.
It would be interesting to find out how many people are on more than one medication for their mental health. I am currently on 3 medications, Depakote and Lithium for my BP and Zopiclone to aid sleep. I realise this is a very basic poll as it does not show how many different types of mental health problems are being experienced but depending on the response this could lead to a further poll about diagnosis etc.
merely matched symptoms to the corresponding drug repeatedly, and left it at that. Chemically and surgically forcing her internal environment has left her weak.. I would like to see her on a more natural regimen that supports the body instead of burdens the liver. I know such things exist from my internet research. Any help from anyone is greatly appreciated. -age 65 -Rheumatic fever as an infant, weakened heart. -Non-smoker 30 yeas.
So I saw my GP and he thought it sounded like I was describing an anxiety disorder (because I often have panic attacks which I have since attributed to copious amounts of caffeine) and has prescribed me to 40MG of Citalopram which seems to be doing something I'm not sure what other than making me insane. I am a heavy drinker but my liver/kidney tests came back all bueno minus slightly a elevated RBC which I'm assuming is due to the fact that I'm a heavy smoker.
It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement. Anyone with any help or suggestions I would REALLY appreciate it.
I feel like my body's thermostat is broken and I'm constantly overheating. I've been taking Claritin and Benadryl but that doesn't seem to help at all. My doctor also gave me a prescription medicine called Atarax, which only makes me drowsy and doesn't help the itchy feeling. Any suggestions? Btw, I've taken blood tests to see if there is anything wrong but everything came out fine.
