Avatar f tn Do you think that the Fentanyl or combo of Fentanyl and Norco helped in suppressing your appetite any? Hope your evening is pain free!!
Avatar f tn I can assure you if your friend died from an OD of fentanyl and alcohol he would as dominosarah said fallen asleep very quickly. Since fentanyl is a painkiller and in high dose makes you drowsy and stops breathing there would be no pain and he would have stopped breathing very quickly and died. There would be no reason to have a seizure as fentanyl does not cause seizures. Was this an intentional overdose or accidental and was he prescribed Fentanyl or a recreational user?
Avatar n tn I was on a 75mic patch last year, every 48 hrs, and the pain doc informed me that Fentanyl would not show up on the typical drug screen. I was lucky enough to have never been randomly selected and I am subject to random drug tests. According to him Fentanyl can be found but the test is quite expensive so most screening stations just dont do it. If the drug screen you are going to take is job related I would not chance it.
Avatar f tn I've been on the Fentanyl patch for a while now (75 mcg/h.) It does help in some ways with the pain, but my breakthrough pain medicine is not where I want it. i am seriously stressed out right now about my dad. (His PET scan is tomorrow and then the lung doctor the following Tuesday.) Other family news that is also bad. No wonder the pain is not well controlled. Question, though, is memory. I have NONE. I seem perfect in my responses (and intentions.
682757 tn?1226867854 About 6 weeks ago i started experiencing EXTREME fatigue, loss of appetite and headache which were constant. I was supposed to replace my patch every 48 hrs. I started noticing that I was getting exremely jittery, nauseaus and sweating after having the patch on for only 35 hrs or so. My life since has been total hell. I feel like this medicine has stolen my spirit. I am not myself. I am very irritable and grumpy. Everyone around me has noticed the change.
Avatar f tn Only in the past 20 days, hair fall has gone up. Does hair straightening dry out the hair causing lack of moisture and thus hair fall?? I truly hope that this is temporary as you mentioned!!
Avatar f tn I just finished Sovaldi and olysio and no hair loss at all, in fact hair looked great I do have hypothyroid which is familial, mother , daughters have it, Check your thyroid levels That can effect hair loss, dryness etc( even my eye brows and under arms thinned from hypothyroidism ) You may need to be on thyroid medication such as synthyroid if it is off
Avatar f tn I do know that suphites can cause hair loss and itchy scalp.But if you know that it was hair gel, and your hair hasn't grown back it may be aswell to speak to a dermatologist , I believe there are new products now may be helpful ..
Avatar n tn If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. This hair loss usually can be helped by treatment thyroid disease. Hair loss may occur if male or female hormones, known as androgens and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss. Many women notice hair loss about 3 months after they've had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones.
Avatar f tn My hair has ALWAYS been so thick and moisturized and healthy and now its dry and frizzy and falling out! Its awful im so embarrassed it literally never stops falling out.
Avatar f tn Does Lithium cause Hair Loss? I just recently started it and I was wondering if it could be the reason my hair is breaking off so bad...I'm 22 I'd rather keep my hair...
Avatar n tn I have seen a local Derm who said there was no scarring on my scalp and no real skin issues associated with my hair loss. In 2004 I took a course of Roaccutane for acne and noticed some thinning after the course finished. I was told that this was a known side effect, but that the hair would grow back. It has been over four years!!! My hair is uniformly thinned out across the entire scalp.
Avatar n tn m natural with no chemicals in my hair and I have never had a problem with hair loss. I went from thick long hair to thin short hair. This is so sad. I'm not sure what to do because my skin has really cleared up from Doryx but if I continue to take it I will be bald with pretty skin! Not a great combination! Thanks for reviews!
Avatar f tn t experienced hair loss but have heard this is a (fairly rare) side effect. You should notify your neurologist and report this adverse event to Shared Solutions. Is it possible for you to switch to another DMD if this becomes intolerable?
400867 tn?1371753094 I have recently been on cymbalta for a few months and my hair loss was severe. In the morning my pillow was covered in hair. During the day my hair was constantly dropping. I dreaded washing my hair as the plug hole often became blocked. This side effect was giving me such stress.
Avatar f tn But when I google mirapex they say this drug does cause hair loss. Just wondering has anybody experienced hair loss taking mirapex and what has your doctor told you. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn Hi, Most people normally shed 50 to 100 hairs a day and this amount of hair loss should not cause noticeable thinning of the scalp hair. Hair thinning and loss could be due to increased rate of shedding compared to the rate of regrowth. This could be due to: hormonal changes, poor nutrition, diseases, certain medications, infections and stress.
Avatar m tn How likely is it to cause hair loss and is the hair loss it may have caused reversible?

Avatar n tn Hair loss is not a side effect of Lithium, but a thyroid disorder will cause hair loss. See an Endocrinologist for an evaluation, If anything is out of whack in our endocrine systen it impacts all our major organs, as well as causing anxiety and depression. Take care.
