Avatar m tn I am now in my forties and I just try to make the best of them because life has to go on. Ecspecially with children, anyway, how does phenobarbitol work to stop the pain of a migraine??? At the moment I am only on Topamax and take tramadol for fibromyagia, so I use that for the migraines as well. Triptains give me sever heart palapitations and cause my stomach and colon to bleed so they are not an option??? Any feedback???
1635132 tn?1305067530 I didn't respond to the daily preventatives until I took Petadolex (an herbal one) and off-label Namenda. You only take 25% to 50% of the dose usually given to Alzheimer's patients, but it did work for my migraines.
767538 tn?1276578920 I'm wondering if they do find that it does work and there aren't any long-term negative effects from it if they will end up doing a clinical trial on it and also if it gets "approved" and used more often, if the cost of it will go down and/or be covered by insurance.
Avatar f tn You can also develop arthritis and inflammation above and below the site they operate on. So it does take time for everything to settle back down. I had lumbar surgery in 2006 and had what I thought was left leg nerve damage after wards. 1.5 years later it started to calm down. Having said that nerve pain is intense and can really affect your life. I've taken Lyrica and Neurontin.
Avatar f tn If I try to distract her or tell her I will take care of it for her she seems to become dispondant because she can not do it herself. I have no family support on this as one brother is far away and the other is being a nut. He even hung up on her the one time he did talk to her. Why would anyone be so selfish? I keep trying to thinnk of things for her to do, but she doesnt want busy work she wants something important she will say.
Avatar n tn I plan on having a long talk with my Dad. He is nin denial and I guess it is time for me to press him harder. It is just tough, and I know all of you know (probably better than me because my Mom is not as far along as some). I really want her to get in and have a FULL diagnosis by a specialist rather than just our family doctor's diagnosis. I know he really knows her medical history and all but I think a full evaluation is needed. I need to get Dad on board.
Avatar f tn 30 and the Dr new nothing about me never read anything that was faxed to him from my PCP he has never seen a patient w/bilat nerve damage which no one has but he looks at me and points to all the drugs I am on, I brought them with me and lined them up on his desk for a reason and he says, I do not give out narcotics like this, now he is the PAINPRO I am there to tell him I am on all these drugs and my pain is still a 10, and all he cared about was I don't give out meds like this, never even aske
Avatar n tn My husband was very good at cleaning and he couldn't understand how the vacum cleaner could work with the long hose on it. You need a name for the degenerative brain disease. It helps alot to finally know what it is and How they can treat it. good luck. I went to regular doctor and other people and they said he was a very smart man and past all their test. But he was normal most days and than he did thing he didn't do before so they didn't get to see it.
Avatar f tn he is on i think like 5 medications and one is to treat alzheimers but it doesn't seem to be helping at all is their something else he can take to help?
398059 tn?1447949233 I'm still taking only half a dose, but I'm going to raise it to the whole pill pretty soon. I've been on it since August and I don't know how I could function without it. The fatigue is a little better, but I what I really noticed is the cognitive benefits. Without it, I'm staring off into space and I can't think my way out of a paper bag! I highly recommend giving this drug a shot, Michael, if you have good insurance!
Avatar m tn He paid a price as the cost to him for trying to take care of her caused him to lose his health as well. I know it has a lot to do with personality, money and all, so you have to decide if you want to take on the battle. I suggest you visit some local support groups and gather some resources, as well as get the legal ducks in order (which my paranoid FIL took as we wanted all his money...). So, you have a lot of decisions to make. It is not easy!
Avatar f tn loseing his glasses or cup was way be fore the 7 years so I don't know how many years it really has been. He started to work for a grocercy store for our insurance and worked the night shift cleaning floors and stocking shelves. He would come home from different direction every day. He took our daughter to school one morning and that was 8:ooam and the school is 4 blocks away and she was late for school. I think he took her to the grocery store and than figured out the school.
Avatar f tn I will stay as long as I can, but at some point, quite honestly, I can't be this woman's savior. And it is not fair for her family to pressure me to be so. Being aware she is not purposely trying to offend me makes it easier to deal with her. I am glad I knew her when she was "her". This person is not "her"'s the disease and I know ir is. Thansk for reply. Much apprecited to know someone was listening!
1627868 tn?1333889942 It's worth a try and if it doesn't work, you will see results right away. I'd ask someone you trust at work to watch you and get an independent assessment as well. Hugs to you... the cognitive issues are a big concern of mine as well. My husband and I are learning toward my quiting for a bit. I am needed to focus on myself and find a better balance.
Avatar n tn I did feel a lot worse than the other two but I just figured that it was because It had been 6 year since my last one. What is this syndrome? How long for you to finally be able to start feeling better.
Avatar f tn Do you know what ketamine is used for? We used it to put a cat to sleep for surgery. Really have been through all you have suggested . You are sooo cute and I thank you. I don't want to take op's anymore. There just has to be a better way. Move to AZ lol!!
Avatar f tn yes colleen I take collazope it helps but its addictived I guess like all the rest of these pills what I di is cut it in halph and take a quarter of a halph it seems to work only I hate to take any of these pills I wish u luck noodles1224
5887915 tn?1383382380 Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a Merry Christmas or holiday season. I saw my Neuro recently & he wants me to have some cognitive testing done. He seemed a little concerned about me which is nice but also a bit of a worry. :-( I will be having a repeat MRI soon as well. I have noticed my cognitive problems, speech problems & memory problems but hadn't realised they were that bad.
Avatar m tn Although its really too early to make a final determination because my pain fluctuates wildly for no apparent reason, I believe that it is helping. It will have to see consistent improvement for atleast 2 months before I declare it to be the drug but I see signs of hope. I know someone else who has taken it for my same problem and it is helping her. You may want to research it and see if it can help your type of pain too.
1109293 tn?1258333223 Although I wanted to go off it right away he wants to take me down from 400 mg. to my usual dose of 300. I'm doing this for a month and after some blood tests I'll ask to get off and mention Clozaril. I really want to get off ALL this medication. It seems like he just kept adding more and more. This is it: Cymbalta, Abilify, Wellbutrin, Lithobid, Lamictal, Tamazapan and thyroid meds Levoxyl and Cytomel. Oh, I forgot, we added Adderall XR for my ADD.
Avatar n tn Yesterday we got into a fight and he dumped all of my pilld down the toliet and It has not even been one day and I fell like I want to die the pain I can't stop moving I toss and turn all night and I just down't know what to do anymore I am soo scared my mom died of taking pills and I don't want to end up like her Please someone help please give me some adive how to stop or how to make it feel better. How long does it take to get it all out of your body so you don't want it anymore????
Avatar n tn Its name is also biperiden hydrochloride. And also, is it normal at 48 years of age for all the symptoms to get so bad in 6 months ???
Avatar n tn I hadn't heard about its use in Migraine patients. It certainly wouldn't hurt although it does need to be ramped up. I'll have to look up this info and see if could helpful for my wife.
Avatar m tn 5 mg dose for the past 22 years and never had a need to increase it. If it helps that much, I would take it. As far as my anti-depressant, everyone is different. Certain anti-depressants are known to be better at treating pain than others. I would ask your doctor for one. All of them are natural pain killers. My anti-depressant is Effexor, and now the upgraded Pristiq which doesn't interfere with my sex drive.
Avatar n tn I took vicodin all through my first pregnancy up till I was 38 weeks then had my daughter at 39 weeks I had so much trouble after she was born they finally put me back on the vicodin 5-500mg for the pain and also had trouble with the epidural they messed it up the first time and then they had to do it again so I had to take it for that reason as well.
Avatar n tn My doctor has been treating my chronic migraines with 25mg Elavil everynight before bed (knocks you out withing 2 hours of taking it) and I also have fiorinal with codeine that I take for acute migraine attacks. It takes away my migraine or dulls it to a tolerable level in about 20 minutes. I am building a tolerance to both so he just told me I can increase my elavil to 50mg. and I'm up to 3 of the fiorinal with codeine for every migraine attack which is 2-3 times per week.
Avatar n tn The doctor has expressed his belief that she is not long for this world but for some reason doctors don't like to admit someone to a hospice unit. I think she would be much more comfortable there. My question is does anyone have any idea when someone is in this condition how much longer they can hold on and how hard should I push the doctor. Thank you!
Avatar f tn The psychiatrist who ordered all this stuff seemed disturbed a little that he found nothing wrong and then prescribed an antipsychotic which I refused to take at the time and talked like he had diagnosed me with schizophrenia which back then I had no clue what he was talking about when he said it would get rid of my delusions and such.
