Stopping Levothyroxine
44 Replies RSS
I have been taking Levothyroxine .88mg for the past two years. I just left town on a three week vacation and realized I left this prescription at home. Should I be concerned? ## If you suddenly stop taking Levothyroxine, your body can go through withdrawal. "Levothyroxine withdrawal may cause hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain, fatigue, depression and sensitivity to cold because your body does not have enough thyroid hormone so your body processes slow down. Patients with thyroid cancer may suffer acute hypothyroidism because of levothyroxine withdrawal." Referenced from: livestrong.com/article/levothyroxine-withdrawal Since you've been taking this medication for so long, I would consider contacting your doctor about this if you have be...

Prepopik
173 Replies RSS
Has anyone in the US used this yet for colonscopy and what did it cost? ## I've used this Prep and it was wonderful. It tasted like orange soda and was very small. I undergo routine colonoscopies and have now finally found my prep of choice because it taste great and is tiny. Suprep & Moviprep = YUK!!! ## Thanks, Johnny, was that in the US? and what did it cost? I really don't care if it is easy to use. I may need to convince my Gastro in some way. ## I used prepopik yesterday. It tastes like unsweetened lemonade with LOTS of artificial sweetener. Like lemon koolaid without sugar. Texture is good though, not thick or slimey. Mix with refridgerated cold water, not tap water and stir well. Drink with a straw. Brush your teeth and tongue after drinking to get rid of taste. You ...

Been belviq for 6 months
2 Replies RSS
I have been on belviq for 6 months, have lost 30 pounds between August 2014 & December 2014. Since then I have lost and gained the same 2-3 pounds. I log food intake with a 1250 cal low carb diet and with cardio & strength training 3-4x a week. I drink plenty of water daily 75-90 oz. there are several women who are in the same holding pattern, why? ## Hello, Sherry! How are you? Hitting a plateau point is pretty common in any weight loss regimen. Your body gets used to whatever you've been doing and hits a point where it starts trying to maintain, rather than keep losing. It's just a biological protection mechanism. Many have reported hitting it for awhile, then having improvement again around the one year mark. Some people even worked with their doctors to take a break ...

what is sulfameth trimethoprim 800 160 tabs treated for
3 Replies RSS
I have been subscribed sulfameth trimethoprim 800 160 for a skin rash. Sulfar content scares me since I had a friend died taking sulfa with Steven Johnson Syndrome. I need more advice on this med. It was prescribed by a Nurse Practioner ## Please see Jo Ann's question below, have not received an answer. ## Hello, Jo Ann! How are you? This is an antibiotic that's used to treat infections and its normal side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. That syndrome is a possible risk associated with any antibiotic, but it is a very slight risk. There's actually a great chance of having an allergic reaction to this one, since about 3% of the population are allergic to it. If it's just a skin rash and not an actual infection, then this medicat...

SETTING RECORD STRAIGHT!! how long after taking subutex can u take methadone
1 Reply RSS
Both subutex and suboxone will cause precipitated withdrawal. It is the bupe that connects to the receptors and kicks the methadone out. Naloxone is just an extra blocker!! I am a social worker at a clinic. Waiting at least 12 hours only if on low dose 20mg or less should b OK. But 24 preferred. ## If you take a little less then half of a 8mg subutext 15 hours ago is it safe to take 20mgs of methadone does anyone know! ! !
