What I tell you is from my own experience, plez understand I am not a doc. I take Zoloft for 10 years, 100mg daily, and in my opinion, him being on 50mg of Zoloft for a month should not bring on withdrawals, altho if you're on a higher dose for a year or more, the withdrawals feel like bad anxiety and last a couple weeks.
Deltha, I have a condition called "Mitochondrial cytopathy" and belong to a digest group. Many members in the group experience "stroke-like episodes", migraines (actually one of the treatments is 400 mg B2), word search problems, crashing which is helped by sleeping 20/24, etc. If you are interested in researching this, go to the United Mitochondrial Disorder Foundation website....
The neurosurgeon did not offer much hope for us to survive the stroke nor in her recovery. She has already beat the odds. My mom was in ICU for 3 weeks and step-down 1 week and in rehab hospital for two months now. I have come to learn the dr.'s don't like or really now prognosis on recovery because everyone recovers differently. I have been told over and over again they don't know why some gain more function than others. My mom pulled out her breathing tube which she had for 2.
Find out the dangerous effects of artificial sweeteners to your health. Aspartame was approved for dry goods in 1981 and for carbonated beverages in 1983. It was originally approved for dry goods on July 26, 1974, but objections filed by neuroscience researcher Dr John W. Olney and Consumer attorney James Turner in August 1974 as well as investigations of G.D. Searle's research practices caused the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to put approval of aspartame on hold (December 5, 1974).
It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer. My dog was knocked flat by the loading dose and barely moved for the first couple of days. He bumped into objects, seemed blind, responded to sounds incorrectly (looked in the wrong direction), tripped, stumbled, and fell flat on his stomach a few times when trying to walk.
At 15, though, I wouldn't start her on serious meds like anti-seizure meds unless the seizures were happening on a daily or even weekly basis. Even with idiopathic epilepsy in young dogs, the first seizures can happen 6 months or a year apart. Most vets won't start medication until at least the second seizure and possibly longer depending on how far apart they are. I might even decide to go for a second opinion if the vet insists on medication right from the get go.
Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
She will squat right in front on me and pee on the carpet or kitchen floor. I find pee everywhere in the house. Tried diapers and she hated them. Is there anything else I can do to stop her peeing? I live in Canada so I can't leave her outside as it is winter here and very cold. In the summer I do leave her outside during the day and bring her in at night though. Suggestions?? Thanks.
You can buy this frozen at outlets that sell frozen raw diets for dogs, or buy it in cans called Tripett. It is also good to occasionally add beef kidney, a bit of liver and egg yolks. While these are high in phosphorus, they do provide needed nutrients. . You can also mix either the rice or the vegetable mix with drained mackerel or salmon for variety and the fish already has bone steamed with it, so it is balanced properly for calcium.
My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds. Our vet drew up a dozen or so prefilled syringes, and we administered them just under the skin at the back of the neck. If you're already doing sub-q fluids, this won't be any different.
My son is 12 and since February has been having seizures that are progressively getting larger in size & nature. He is unaware when he has them, but says he has a strange feeling afterwards that tells him he's had one. He's had a CT scan (due to some falls) and they came back normal. He had an MRI and it found nothing either. We had a 4 hr. EEG and although he didn't have a seizure that was visible, spikes were detected.
He told me that the loss of use of the right hand/arm was definetely a stroke in his opinion - based on what he sees. I told him that I thought I had this problem beat, as I had not had an episode for 7 months. He replied by telling me that he looked at my charts and noticed that I started aspirin therapy apx. 7 months ago and he feels that this is what kept the problem at bay.
I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
I too am having this strange wet, warm sensation on my inner left thigh. It's been going on for the last month or so. It will happen somtimes only a few times a day or as much as 3 or 4 times an hour and lasts only few seconds. As best as I can determine it doesn't happen while I'm sleeping. SO....I did some checking and as many have already mentioned, this symptom can sometimes mean a potential blood clot.
Left untreated, a magnesium deficiency can lead to more life-threatening conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, stroke, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and others. Magnesium's role in energy production. One of the primary roles of magnesium is to activate the adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy storage molecule, to create and store energy. Without energy, there is no life. Magnesium's role in relaxing muscles.
It doesn't sound like you were at fault. It's not uncommon for dogs to die around that age. He could have had a stroke, heart attack, etc. The owners could have an autopsy done to find out for sure.
The Golden suffered a stroke in August of 2008 and it took considerable effort to get him back on his feet. The stroke seems to have been a spinal stroke, and I assume is not related to the deafness. In fact the onset of near total deafness came on very suddenly about two months ago, well over 6 months since the Golden was last exposed to loud barking during play.
He threw up his dinner, so we put him and the other two dogs out back while we cleaned it up. When we went to let them in, he was lying on the ground and wouldn't get up. My wife picked him up to carry him inside and I could see that his tongue was hanging from his mouth, his eyes seemed vacant, and he was very unresponsive. His legs twitched and he moved his head a little, but his movements diminished. His passed away after just a few minutes.
There is an excellent thread regarding phenobarbital dosing and side effects in dogs having seizure activity. My family is in a similar situation, our 9 year old coon hound in excellent health had 3 grand mal seizures in less than 24 hrs. We had a basic work up done at the vet after the first seizure which essentially came back normal. We have started her on phenobarb and prednisone, but I am glad I checked out the thread b/c I did not know the medication side effects were so profound...
Do you live in the city, the suburbs or in the country? I ask because if you live in the country, or if you have a lot of plants in your yard, it's possible that he managed to inhale something and now it is stuck in his nose. Dogs have inhaled foxtails before and these can be very painful and actually need to be removed by the vet if they become stuck in the nostril. He could also have a simple case of allergies.
Hormonal imbalance Weak bladder sphincter Urinary tract infection Urinary stones Spinal injury or degeneration (frequently seen in German shepherds) Protruding intervertebral disc Prostate disorders Presence of other diseases that cause excessive water consumption, such as diabetes, kidney disease, hyperadrenocorticism Congenital abnormalities Anatomic disorders Certain medications So the problem is going to be to discount these one by one, taking the most likely first - which is why I mention
I used to think it was a fad until I got a 12 year old dog who without raw would never have survived as she has had a stroke and then was left at a relatives who had small dogs so she was not only starving but fighting the effects of a stroke. We automatically put her on raw and a month later she was running around our big acre lot and you could actually see what looked like a smile.
I would stay away from the preparations that are taken internally and the ones that cover a multitude of pests just in case she does tend to be sensitive, you don't want to overload her, but I have even used FrontLine TopSpot on dogs with seizure disorder in the past with NO ill effects whatsoever, and one of them was a six month old puppy. Adams also makes a line of wonderful flea and tick preparations.
For example, acid blockers result in MALABSORPTION SYDROMES, which means you don't absorb vital nutrients. Instead of acid blockers, (don't stop meds without consulting with your doc), try the suggestions in Dr. Michael T. Murray's book (see #7 above), and in the other books! BIRTH CONTROL PILLS can cause headaches, blood clots, strokes, etc. (Avoid these if possible!
It has been two days since his last seizure but he still hasn't fully recovered, he doesn't know his commands, the people in the house ( including me ), or the other dogs and cats in the house. I want to know if he will even recover from this or if there is something I can do to help. He keeps pacing and whining, even in the middle of the night. Should I bring him in again? Could there be something more serious going on?
You can whine to a cat but you have to use your happy voice and stroke them constantly while doing it. That gets tiresome when you’re already in a bad mood. If you become emotional and stroke a cat too vigorously, they will get even with you. This may involve claws out, your blood being spilled and even more for you to whine about. There could also be a great deal of noise from both you and the cat.
At times I will flinch, twitch, and drop things held in my right hand. For I while I thought I had a stroke, because my right side what partically paralized. I had to go through pyhsical therapy to regain strength and learn how to live with the pain. I experience muscle stiffness especially in the morning, and if I'm alittle more active through out the day, the next day is when I'll pay for it. I daily deal with burning, itching, tmj, confusion, aching all over my body.
