Avatar m tn Drugs That Interact With Grapefruit Juice Here are some drugs that interact with grapefruit juice. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you're concerned about any of your medications.
Avatar n tn Avoid grapefruit and grapefruit juice. Avoid alcohol (includes wine, beer, and liquor) or other medicines and natural products that slow your actions and reactions. These include sedatives, tranquilizers, mood stabilizers, antihistamines, and other pain medicine. If you have lung disease, you may be more sensitive to this medicine. Use birth control that you can trust to prevent pregnancy while taking this medicine. What are some possible side effects of this medicine?
Avatar m tn chocolate, benedryl, and grapefruit juice. I can't drink grapefruit juice, but the chocolate and benedryl were very helpful. Chocolate helps you produce endorphines, the benedryl helps to reduce some of the cold sweats and also helps you sleep. After taking Ambien for nearly 3 years, being able to sleep without having to take it was my first first glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel. Oh yeah. I'm not sure what the juice was to supposed to do, but it was supposed to help.
Avatar n tn Have you had any comments from the pharmacy as to drug interactions? One that I know of is grapefruit juice. Make sure she doesn't have any, it can double and even triple the effects of certain medications. I have two concerns regarding her list of medications. 1. There are far too many and judging from a few it is damaging her liver. and 2. Aspirin is a mircale drug, yes - but it is a powerful blood thinner as well. Make sure she gets blood tests.
Avatar m tn OTC bendryl helped a little with sleep, as did a glass of good old moo juice. Sometimes the simple things help. I also did a mind game, especially at night, of going to a happy place. I have talked about this on other threads, where I built a boat in my mind, piece by piece, rib by rib, etc. Tylenol PM has benedryl in it, so you may want to try this. If you can do without ANY drug, OTC or not, that's great.
Avatar m tn The two that spring to mind are black teas and grapefruit juice. Also good to limit excessively sugary food and drink and caffienated drinks such as coke. Keep coffe to 2 x 8 ounce cups per day. Don't eat high fibre foods with your Riba meal as there is a school of thought that suggests the riba will bind to the fibre and be expelled from your system too quickly. Very important to take the Riba with some healthy fats to keep it circulating.

Avatar f tn I have never abused pain medication, but I do have an unhealthy affection for Ambien. My hubby is a cop and he hides the bottle from me so I can't take more than I am supposed to. I wanted to take his head off when he started doing that because I was thinking with my addiction brain and took it as an insult. I came around and got over it. Now when I pick it up I just hand it over to him on my own. I still don't trust myself with it.
Avatar f tn Since I don't work and I do have many insomnia issues, I'm thinking that this regimen might work better for me. I know that I read somewhere the grapefruit juice or grapefruits are not allowed on this regimen. They're not in season right now anyway, so not an issue for me now. But, are other foods on the list as well? Like can you use lemon juice, orange juice, eat pineapple, etc.? Women-did the Riba make your eyelashes grow?
Avatar f tn where my young son found me and later told me he thought I was dead...Turns our you cannot increase your body temp in anyway..nor drink grapefruit juice...or it will release a huge dose all at once into your system that can be fatal..Damn Dr. told me NOTHING!!!! You have all been so great..thanks for taking the time to read and reply back..You all are my lifeline as no one who knows me personally knows what I'm going thru..Hugs and positive energy and strengthto all!!!
Avatar f tn Does anybody know if it's okay to drink green tea when treating with Sovaldi? I know grapefruit juice is off limits. I've been having to be on prescription strength of VIt. D, but now that my levels are high again, I'm going to be able to switch from 1 a week to 1 every other week and use the OTC Vit D on the off week from the Prescription strength. The Prescription strength is so strong that it does a number on my stomach. It's like 50,0000 iu or something like that.
Avatar n tn All the SSRI's can lead to sexual compulsion. If your son is in that state then is more than likely in the early stages of mania. You should always taper off the drugs slowly and it may take as long as you were on them. The following article helped my family get off the stupid drugs.

Avatar n tn I urge you to check it out becausr the info, includes some food interac. Grapefruit juice for florinef (I take for low bl. pressure)? Nice my specialist, noted as one of the top in North American never mentioned that one to me. As to the rest, well, it was indeed enlightening. I was in no way surpriused by the CNS depressant, interactions, et al from "the pills" but it was the rest of it that dang near blew my pantyhose off!
Avatar f tn Am on Welbutrin, Celexa, Concerta during the day, Ambien at night. On and off I've had trouble with diarrhea and cramping. Figured it was due to bile not getting saved up but just getting dumped into my digestive tract. Wondering what it will turn out to be.
Avatar n tn I got a really bad case of poison oak two years ago, which went systemic, and I had to take prednisone for quite a while before it got better. Ever since then, if I eat anything with mangos in it, or sweetened with mango juice, I will have a recurrence of a rash in the exact same spots! (Mangos are in the poison oak family.) Also, any kind of skin irritation (I am prone to contact dermatitis as well, and I'm reactive to metal also) may cause those spots to erupt in a rash again.
Avatar f tn we discovered neurontin made me worse, but that's not always the case. At 20-30 mg in my taper, a 30-day suboxone taper, and then mental health treatment & monitoring. BTW-He is not affiliated w/ my clinic, who supports all the info, and have shared it with others who needed it, but they do not confirm methadone causes this. In long, (vs.short. HA!) I wondered when it would be time. What sign would there be? And God said, here, idiot. What more do you want?
Avatar n tn try warm prune juice. a nurse gave some to me in the hospital after my first laproscopic surgery - it really got things going.
Avatar n tn green tea, tea, garlic, onions, fruits, vegetables, protein shakes made with juice or water (make with protein powder that contains alot of the amino acids, which help bind to mercury and remove it from the body), chicken or turkey two/three times a week (baked and organic if possible). Also, 2 tablespoons of flax seed (add it to the protein shake) slowly going up to 4 tbsp./ daily, along with eating two apples a day.
