Sided effects of amitriptline hcl for diabetics

What are the positive side effects for diabetes issues? ## Several herbs and supplements were mentioned. For example, gingko has been shown to be beneficial for diabetic retinopathy due to its antioxidant properties. In addition, natural products such as beta-glucan, beta-sitosterol, niacin, omega-3 fatty acids, soy and psyllium have strong supportive evidence in lowering lipid abnormalities commonly seen with diabetes. However, Ulbricht cautioned that these herbal supplements are only to be used as integrative therapies rather then replacing western medicine as the patients’ primary treatment. ## Amitryptyline is an antidepressant that has also been shown to help with anxiety, and some types of nerve pain. Why did your doctor say they were prescribing it? The FDA warns that it ma...

Amitriptyline and Bupropion

Is anyone taking these two drugs together? My pharmacist is concerned, but both my Gastroenterologist (who prescribed it for IBS) and Psychiatrist are not concerned as I have no history of seizures. I also take Lamictal for bipolar, which was originally an anti-seizure drug. Confusing. ## Taking them together can lower your seizure threshold, and the Buproprion can increase the effect of the Amitriptyline, so the dosage of the Bupropion should be kept as low as possible, and your doctor should be monitoring you regularly in case any problems arise. Ref: Medscape Interactions You can use that interaction checker to read more. Medline Plus Amitriptyline and Bupropion. However, part of a pharmacist's job is to be cautious, and make sure you are aware of any possible risks, and they oft...

Anatripoline

Could you please tell me if that drug is used to induce prolonged sleep to eliviate pain in the lower back vertebrae and discs. Or if some other drug cocktail exists to achieve this. An earlier reply is appreciated. Thanks C ## I believe the medication you are referring to is Amitriptyline, a generic for Elavil. This is an antidepressant that sometimes helps people with mild to moderate pain. It can cause drowsiness, but will not induce prolonged sleep. I suggest speaking to your doctor to get ideas for what may help you. ## Thanks Verwon. A friend of mine suffers from severe back pain. He is undergoing this sleep treatment induced by a cocktail of drugs? He has been doing this for a week at home. Apart from nurses going in to check on him he wont let anyone near him.
