Ibuprofen and glaucoma

Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen and glaucoma


Avatar n tn I happen to have chronic acute angle glaucoma. I've had 1 laser iridotomy in each eye and the angle has not opened. thank you.
Avatar f tn I am a 38 yo white female and currently underwent laser iridoplasty in both eyes for closed angle glaucoma. Tues for one and the other on Thurs. My left eye surgery felt different to me. It was more uncomfortable and afterwards, it seemed it took more time to 'clear' up. It has now been a week tomorrow and I am still experiencing a headache but I think it is from the blurry vision I have when I try to read, look at my phone or the computer.
284078 tn?1282620298 Fortunately, God was on her side because she was smart enough to stop the Topamax and go to the emergency room before she developed an attack of acute narrow angle glaucoma (symptoms severe eye pain, headache, nausea, vomiting, almost complete vision loss.) Her ocular pressure was actually only slightly elevated and with cessation of the Topamax, her pressure returned to normal in a day, while it took over a week for her vison to return to normal.
284078 tn?1282620298 By the way the patient has improved dramatically but is still on four different glaucoma medications and one dilating drop. He is nowhere close to a full recovery and I suspect that he will probably have long term negative effects from the attack. If you are on Topamax or considering taking it, please be aware that it can cause acute myopia, choroidal effusions, acute angle closure glaucoma and severe vision loss.
Avatar n tn I have called and told him about a month ago about this and he told me to go to my regular dr, that he didnt think it was because of hep c...and I have no other conditions...I hate my dr...I think im going to call him and see what he can do and if he doesnt do anything to help me, I am going to tell him that I am going to find a real dr...I dont think he takes this disease seriously. What do yall think I should do?...and I agree about the weed thing, they should make it legal.lol...
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar n tn My glaucoma specialist ( she did both a cataract and glaucoma operation on me a little over two years ago ), recently has me on Bromday for the past two months to try to correct an eye problem I've been having. When she first put me on Bromday, she instructed me to use it once a day, but, only when I felt I needed it.( When I would feel eye pain, discomfort in the eye, or excessive tearing) I would do so, and, within two to four days the eye pain and tearing would go away.
551667 tn?1215584294 I discussed these symptoms with an ophthalmologist about 3 years ago who tested for glaucoma, he said I didn't have it and I am not in a risk group for this. I have none of the glaucoma symptoms listed online. I'm not on medication beyond occasional ibuprofen, and have no known allergies. I don't have a high caffeine intake, nor do I use other stimulants. It doesn't seem linked to spikes in stress or anxiety.
Avatar m tn Good evening, I have been having excruciating, constant headaches/migraines everyday for the past 2 1/2 - 3 months along with nauseau. I have been having neck and back pain and I lack muscle. The neck pain is concentrated on the right hand side and the back pain is at the bottom of my spine. Also, my vision fluctuates, but is still 20/20 when I go in to the eye doctor and I do not have glaucoma. I have been checked by four different eye doctors, one of them specializing in glaucoma.
Avatar n tn I just had a physical and my blood pressure was great.I recently(2 months) had an eye operation for glaucoma on my left eye.The headaches started about 2 weeks ago.Talked to eye Dr. and was told it had nothing to do with my eyes.Any ideas about preventing these?
Avatar f tn When I get a headache I take 800mg ibuprofen and it seems to work after 20 mins the headache doesn't stop it just gets better. when the headache starts I have to sit somewhere in the fetal position and rock back and forth I’m not surd if it helps but that seems like the only thing I can do because of the pain. I also have a pea-size lump on my left temple which I've had for over a year without pain until now.
Avatar n tn Also if I am in a dark room and someone opens the door the light appears much brighter than it would normally and takes a while oto adjustI had a throrough eye exam and the optician found nothing wrong, no glaucoma, peripheral vision perfect and all other tests completely normal. I took a nasty bang to the head in the gym just over 3 weeks ago and had a few ice pick headaches for a couple of weeks after. Headaches gone by eye feels weird. I am wondering if the two are related.
Avatar n tn Please refer to article from Medline "Cyclo-Oxygenase- and Capsaicin-Sensitive Afferant Febres Affect Beta-Adrenoceptor-Evokeked Response in the Rat Urinary Bladder" key word: NSAIDs Tucci (author), Indimetacin. Ok, after taken 1000 mg (never had this dose level before) of Ibuprofen, I had began to experience frequent urination that night. Not realizing a possible connection, I took the same dose again the following day and 3 celebrex (1 day dose)during that week.
Avatar m tn So, your dose of 2 tablets is 400 mg per dose, which is within the normal dosing range. Ibuprofen is best taken with food or milk to help minimize stomach irritation and always take it as directed, whether if it is prescription or over the counter. NyQuil has several cold and flu products. I am not sure which one you took.
Avatar f tn It hurts terribly to move it and even when I have taken a 800mg ibuprofen, if I move it too far in any direction, it hurts. I am taking ibuprofen around the clock. I have had some blurriness but no loss of vision. My eye doctor and neuro are not sure if it is optic neuritis. I go for a MRI on Friday and hope it shows whatever is causing the pain. Last night when I was trying to go to sleep, closing my left eye made the pain spread into the back of my head and behind my ear.
Avatar f tn I can get it to go up when I move around. I am 35 and not on any meds except tylenol, ibuprofen, prevacid and xanax for my panic attacks due to my headaches. The pain can be intense but mostly its a dull ache with a little burning sensation. Very hard to explain. Very achey. It simmers down when i put an ice pack on it and when i go to sleep. But in the morning its back with a vengance.
Avatar n tn everything seemed to be fine until i got home, i was showering and i coughed up a little blood. i blew my nose shortly after and my eye instantly puffed up. There is no bruising, but the eyelids seem to be filled with fluid and are now swollen so the eye is about halfway shut... i look like a monster!!!! please help..
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar m tn I accidentally discovered a few years ago that a relatively small amount of prednisone (10 mg every other day) and two ibuprofen tablets a day keep me 100 percent symptom free with no apparent side effects. They only work in combination; neither prednisone nor ibuprofen does much of anything on its own (a fact that strikes me as diagnostically interesting).
203342 tn?1328740807 The pain in your forehead region along with tiredness of eyes can be due to refractive errors of the eye like myopia, hypermetropia, astigmatism, and eye conditions like glaucoma and cataract. It can also be due to sinusitis but this will cause other symptoms of sinusitis too. Poor sleep pattern and sleep disturbances are the other factors. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult your doctor.
Avatar f tn About an hour later my left eye felt worse and i almost had a headache in that eye. The eye itself felt painful and sore inside (deep pain). I took some pain killers and ibuprofen and it relieved it. Now the pain has gone that eye that was effected feels sore and almost dry & gritty as i move my eye ball around. I also feel generally weak now. I have what i think is TMJ as i grit my teeth a lot and last night my temples ached as does my neck and shoulders etc.
Avatar f tn It's still very tender and numb under the eye, on the cheek, the left side of my nose, upper lip and upper gum on the left. I went straight to the hospital from the incident and was given a cold-pack because my eye was really red and swollen. The dr's prognosis was "facial contusion" & I was given ibuprofen & that's it.
1155483 tn?1262436247 I do have a family history of glaucoma - my dad has it and my granfather actually went blind from it - so I do have to be extra careful and it could be that because of this history, I was more prone to developing the problem with the Ultram, but just know it is a possibility. Best of luck and keep us posted!
Avatar f tn Prednisone, especially when taken long term, can cause a wide range of serious side effects, including diabetes, thinning bones (osteoporosis), broken bones (osteonecrosis), high blood pressure, cataracts, glaucoma and weight gain. Azathioprine (Azasan, Imuran). Azathioprine, another immunosuppressant medication, is sometimes used along with prednisone. Using both medications may allow you to take a smaller dose of prednisone, reducing its side effects.
233488 tn?1310696703 The first is whether you need the surgery or not. Assuming you have made the decision to have surgery this is a discussion of the many options and choices you have. THERE IS NO “BEST” TYPE OF PHACOEMULSIFICATION CATARACT SURGERY AND NO “BEST” INTRAOCULAR LENS. NO TARGETED POST SURGERY REFRACTIVE ERROR IS FOR EVERYONE. THESE DECISIONS WILL VARY FROM PERSON TO PERSON AND MUST BE INDIVIDUALIZED. We all have different visual needs.
Avatar f tn I also have a question about muscle relaxers like Amrix and Zanaflex. I'm trying to go off of my meclazine and this morning has shown me that the next four days are going to be really rough. I would assume that Reglan is also on the list of drugs I can't take. I know Phenergan is not allowed. What about Aleve, indomethacin, and the triptans (Zomig, Imitrex, Maxalt, Relpax) in the event that I do end up getting a migraine during this time?
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Morning Tramadol Warriors! Welcome and we're so very happy you found us. Please make yourself at home in Part 31 ...
Avatar n tn He told me that i pulled my muscle pretty badly, and probably torn it slightly (also been doing weight lifting). He suggested that i should rest and stretch a little and to take ibuprofen for the imflammation. If it didn't get any better in a few weeks then i should go back and get a chest x-ray. I'm just worried that it's something serious..it sounds a lot like costocondritis (sp)? or something else? advice would be most appreciated. Thanks.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi ChicaBooms! Welcome to our new home!
Avatar n tn anyone have any experiences with pain meds? i dont take tylenol because of my liver, aspriin and ibuprofen dont agree with me either. i have fibrosis not cirrhosis and cleared the virus with treatment. so i do have some concerns about ULTRAM as ive found some sites where some feel it is hard to wean off of and it can affect people differently. it doesnt sound like your run-of-the-mill pain medication. just wondering.......
