Avatar n tn 5 grains of phenobarbital for his seizures and Levothyroxine for his suspected hypothyroid condition. He also suffers from noise anxiety and becomes extremely destructive ( tearing house apart behavior)around loud noises(fireworks, gunshots,thunder etc). He has been taking Gabapentin and Fluoxetine for the noise anxiety for 1.5 years. We have moved him into a secure safe room and that limits the destruction. I'm looking for any advice on other things that I could do to stop the seizures.
Avatar n tn I bought the diet pill accelis to help me lose weight but I am concerned it will effect the other medication I'm on. I'm taking levothyroxine for my thyroid and fluoxetine for my baby blues. Can I take accelis with my other medication?
Avatar m tn I also take the maximum allowed daily dose of Fluoxetine. Recently people have started commenting/complaining that I yawn a lot and have started telling me I need to get my "energy levels" up. Whatever that means. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it documented? Is it fluke?
Avatar f tn My GP has been tracking my thyroid levels ever 1-3 months, and adjusting meds (levothyroxine and Cytomel) as needed. I haven't put together yet how all the symptoms fit with my blood levels, but I do believe it is all related. Should I see an endocrinologist, or stick with my GP. I've become sooooo aggravated with the menstrual cycles, that I have consulted an OB/GYN for a hysterectomy. But if we can correct it with my thyroid, that would be much easier.
Avatar f tn I am taking the following prescriptions: Fluoxetine 20mg, Levothyroxine .05 mg, Nexium 40mg, Minocycline 50 mg and Levora .15/30 I want to start a diet pill while taking these medications. The name of the diet pill is Lipovox. Can you tell me if any or all of these medications would cause side effects? I have feelings of nausea and was wondering if the combination of all these meds would cause that. Also, is it safe to take the diet pill with the prescribed meds? Thank you.

1063764 tn?1272824664 I'm also taking 20 mg of fluoxetine. The past few years I've been very tired (which I contribute somewhat to the fluoxetine and is normal), and my memory seems to be declining (way before I started taking the fluoxetine). I am only 22 years old, so I'm HOPING it is due to the hypothyroidism. My question is if this is a possibility or not? I have trouble concentrating, but I'm pretty sure it's not ADD or ADHD.
Avatar f tn I currently take 150mcg Levothyroxine and 10mcg T3. Recommendations set out by my endocrinologist suggest I am under medicated but she told me my levels were stable and required no dose increase. Results for thyroid (previous 3 results) MAY 16 (125mcg Levothyroxine and 10mcg T3) TSH - 3.94 (0.2 - 4.2) FREE T4 - 12.7 (12 - 22) FREE T3 - 4.2 (3.1 - 6.8) JUL 16 (150mcg Levothyroxine and 10mcg T3) TSH - 2.70 (0.2 - 4.2) FREE T4 - 18.9 (12 - 22) FREE T3 - 4.8 (3.1 - 6.

Avatar n tn was diagnosed by my OBGYN with PMDD and encouraged to try Fluoxetine. Received some relief but did not like idea of antidepressant so discontinued. Symptoms increased to chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent headaches, dry skin, night sweats, zero libido in 2007...again, told I had PMDD and told to try Yaz.
Avatar m tn T doctor sometimes ago and he said I do not have an inner ear infection. I visited eye doctor and no problem too. Then I thought of it as driving phobia and started to take anti depressant drug but unfortunately, the problem still. This issue is irritating me and I do not know what to do?!!!
1063764 tn?1272824664 Hello I've been taking fluoxetine 20 mgs since April of this year. It's been working, only problem is I'm incredibly exhausted. I'm in college, and taking five classes, plus have a part time job at the school. I usually have to stay late so by the time I get home I have absolutely no energy, and there is no way around it at this point in the semester. I also have a hypothyroid, I take levothyroxine for it, seems to be helping as well, at least for that problem.
Avatar n tn Her pain has never changed, never moved - always across her forehead, in her temples and behind her eyes. Reading and concentrating make it worse. Sometimes it's worse from out of the blue. She awakens with a pain level of 7 and sometimes up to a 9. It stays about and 8 or 9 all day. She takes Percocet when it's too horrible to tolerate anymore. The Percocet drops the pain down to maybe a 6 or 7.
Avatar n tn I would rather not add another drug while I am adjusting to levothyroxine, but other people do not think twice about taking an antidepressant, and neither viewpoint is right or wrong. Also, for some people, an antidepressant is like a life-line while they get their hypothyroidism under control. I am sure that there are other people like me, for whom depression is only one of the thinking/emotional problems caused by hypothyroidism.

Avatar f tn Hi wondering if anyone can give me some advice! I am 44yrs old and have suffered from fatigue since my early twenties poss before as I do remember bouts of tiredness as a child. I had many chest infections as a child and was treated with antibiotics at 11yrs old for chronic chest infection which was possibly TB. I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid at 25 and 2yrs ago with sacroillitis and spondylytic arthropaphy.
Avatar f tn Yes, endocrinologist is someone I've been in touch with since early teens since I have been diagnosed with PCOS and hypothyrodoism when i was 18, and since then I have been taking regular blood checks to see if everything is ok on the hormonal side (it seems to be) and to adjust my levothyroxine dosage. I must have read everything on panic attacks, starting with Clarie Weeks ..
Avatar f tn I had a severe headache, dilated pupils and shook uncontrollably for at least two hours. The dental unit transferred me to the A and E department and they kept me under observation as my BP remained unstable for several hours. They said that I had probably fainted due to an adrenaline reaction to the local anaesthetic and have advised that I get a referral back to the encrinologist.

Avatar f tn The most recent problem has yet again abscesses under my teeth. After 7 days of Amoxycillin and Metranidazol the pain was not being relieved by painkillers and my dentist sent me to the Oral Maxilla facial unit at the hospital. I went to have four teeth removed under local anaesthetic the next day. The dentist used a local anaesthesia without adrenaline due to a previous adverse reaction. Whilst waiting for my mouth to numb I passed out and apparently was unconscious for 7-8 mins.
Avatar n tn Now living in MI it has started again and at times it is cig smoke and other times its toast? go figure... I do take levothyroxine, and antidepressants... I am curious to find an answer because generally my family doesn't smell them however my two youngest have!
Avatar n tn I have a white coated tongue and it burns and feels almost like sandpaper. My lips too are dry and cracked constantly. My mouth is very dry. I have good and bad news. The good is that it could be only a yeast infection in your mouth called thrush. The bad news is that ive been treated for thrush 3 or 4 times in my 4 year quest to get rid of this. Your symptoms sound like thrush as does mine. My symptoms have alleviated in the past year or two but it is still slightly there.
Avatar n tn First, I will feel a bit dizzy and nauseas, then I will have to run to the bathroom because the diarrhea hits me and I feel like while I'm going to the bathroom I will pass out, then the nausea and dizziness with cold chillls and then I am hot so I have to take the sweater off that I put on because I was cold. I am 30 years old and I have a mild case of lupus that has been under control with plaquinil over the past ten years.
Avatar n tn She tested me for low estrogen and that was the problem. She put me on estrace cream, clobetasol and a low dose (10mg) of fluoxetine( don't be alarmed, it is use to help with nerve pain) for 4 weeks. I am 33 years old and I am feeling better than ever! Low estrogen can be brought on by stress, bad diet, family history and so many other things. Get tested before you take anymore unneeded antibotics or other meds that make the problem worse. Good Health, Ladies!
Avatar n tn I feel like my body's thermostat is broken and I'm constantly overheating. I've been taking Claritin and Benadryl but that doesn't seem to help at all. My doctor also gave me a prescription medicine called Atarax, which only makes me drowsy and doesn't help the itchy feeling. Any suggestions? Btw, I've taken blood tests to see if there is anything wrong but everything came out fine.
