What about my kidneys

My doctor gave me Raneza 500mg. I am worried because I have stage 4 Kidney disease. I also have a dizziness problem. Recently I fainted and had to go to the emergency room. I have had this dizziness problem for more than a year but cannot find out why it's happening. I also have angina. Raneza has given me very bad constipation. I am very worried for my kidneys. ## Ranexa is most commonly used to treat chronic angina, its typical side effects may include nausea, headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, and seizures, so it may have caused your fainting spell. How long have you been taking it? Unfortunately, this medication has also been known to cause kidney failure in some people that take it, though it isn't a common occurrence.

CHRONIC BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS, COULD IT BE THE TEGRETOL? I HAVE TRIED SO MANY RX MEDS NO CURE AND I DON'T SLEEP AROUND. I AM MARRIED AND OTHERWISE HEALTHY. I HAVE DONE ALL THE NESSESARY THINGD TO GET RID OF THIS INFECTION INC... SEEN AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE DR. DOES THIS DRUG INTERFER WITH THE VAGINAS ABILITY TO STAY HEALTHY? PLEASE E MAIL ONLY! ## I didn't find it listed as a side effect of Tegretol, according to the FDA reports, they typically include nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, and mood changes. Has your husband also been checked? Sometimes, they can also be infected, and engaging in intercourse can reinfect you. He may need to be examined by a urologist. Are you on any other medications?

lortab after tramadol

i have been taking tramadol for about a week, the last time was about 24 hrs before i took lortab, three 10/325 and it seems like the lortab did not work at all?? how long till the lortab will work again? ## I don't think it ever will work the same if you have been on tramadol for a long period of time. But a week shouldn't have any affect on the lortab not working . I used lortab before switching to tramadol and now when I get severe spine pain that lortab does Nothing . So I think ur body has to re adjust to it. This is my personal opinion . I am no Dr though :) ## Wow! You really shouldn't try to take multiple doses, at once, like it, it creates the risk of overdose, which could cause organ damage, failure, or death. The current FDA directions instruct you to only take on...

calan sr vs verapamil

I have been taking Calan SR pills to control my heart palpitations for 10 years. I am being forced to move to the genetic Verapamil SR. I have a mitro valve prolapse. I have tried to use this generic before but it does not control by palpitations. What are the best manufacturers for this drug? Is there a different generic I can take that would help me? Thanks to all that answer ## Hello, John! How are you? Verapamil SR is the generic name for the medication, it is not the name of one by any particular manufacturer. Do you remember any other details about the one you tried, before, such as the manufacturer, how it looked, or the markings on it? The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased urination.

My Mother Is A Schizophrenia Patient Aged 65she Was Given Chlorpromazine For Period Of 13 Years And Recently Doctor Changed To Olanzepineshe Did Wellb

kindly advise is it safe to use qutipine to a 65 year old patient as she is drowsy all throughout the day.she was on chloropromazine for 13 years recently changed to olanzepine which worked well.but doctor has changed to qutipine which is acting like a sedative.what shall we do ## Slowly decrease the dose ## I would try zyprexa again, without the clozeril. Another hip drug is mirtazapine. The use of seroquel is indicated for geriatric dosing - just keep it al low as possible because it makes just about anyone very sleepy especially at the lower geriatric doses.

Does a child need Abilify 5 Mg, Bupropion 75mg, and Chlorpromazine 25mg for Bipolar and ADHD?

My foster child is on Ability 5 mg, Bupropion 75 mg, Chlorpromazine 25mg 3 times per day for bipolar and ADHD. Does he need these meds that seem to do the same thing? I have the sense since he has been with me that he does not have anger problems any more than any other 11 year old child. He did tell me that he used anger to get away from the home he was in because he was being beaten by an older child. I will admit he may be adhd but bipolar you can't make me believe. ## I'd suggest discussing it with his doctor and/or getting a second opinion. It is an unfortunate fact that many children end up over medicated and many doctors don't review what the child is taking and just leave them on them, rather than do a review and see if it is needed any longer. Have you talked to any...

Risperidone 1 Mg Better Than Seriquel 100mg

I was taken seoquel 100mg 3 times a day but got me sick an put me to abilify 30mg than my doctor took me off an put me on risperidone 1mg. but seem most likely med's really not working better an I just got these "risperidone 1mg. but i also take Lexapro an Zyprexa5 mg as in today but also need to know is it better of which of all I be taken to help me. I also take Clonazepam 1mg as for "klonopin" an Trazodone 150 mg ## It is actually difficult to say what medication(s) may be better at helping any certain person. They can all affect everyone differently and what may work wonderfully for one person might not work, at all, in another person. The only thing you can really do is try the medications your doctor suggests and see what works for you, without making you ill from ...

Restoril Why Doesnt It Work

I have had a hard time sleeping as a child. Now that I am 43 it is very bothersome to me. I don't drink or take any drugs besides my thyroid medicine. I have tried Ambiem and lunesta. Neither worked. I am lucky if I get 12 to 14 hours of sleep a week. So now I have been on Restoril 30mg for about a week now and I still can't sleep. I am about to loose it. Why isn't these meds that the doctors say should knock me out, not working. Please I need some advice from people who have severe insomnia? Any advice would be welcome. ## Have you tried any of the natural remedies, such as just taking a Melatonin supplement at night? Learn more Melatonin details here. After having problems with insomnia for years and trying many medications, it's what I've found works best for me. ...

Dexedrine availability

I am exceedingly pill-sensitive. Nothing works for me like the old Dexedrine by Smth, Kline, Glaxoc. Is there any place in the world to obtain and fill a prescription for it? ## Hello, Wendy! How are you? It is still available in the U.S., but you may need your doctor to write a prescription as 'brand medically necessary' and to have a pharmacy order it in for you. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, mood swings and anorexia. Has someone told you that it isn't available? ## I was told the same - my pharmacist tried to order more as I was picking up my prescription last week 'suspended indefinitely' ... I'm also extremely 'pill senstive' - ...

Dexedrine question

So I've been on adderrall or vyvanse for some years now and I seem to have an incredible tolerance. My question is to anyone who has tried both and which one worked better. If dex does are the doctors Leary in giving it out and is it as hard or harder to find pharmacies that have it? Thanks for any feedback ## Or has there been anything stronger/more effective then vyvanse or adderrall? ## It really depends on which one works best for you. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, and anorexia. Which one have you had the best luck using? Most pharmacies carry both, though they usually have a limited supply. ## My doc could no longer write Addo he gave me. Vyvanse. Not only did...

Adderall manufactured by Teva not working

I have had two refills of Adderall 20 mg that was manufactured by Teva/barr (Teva) and it seems to have much less medication in each pill. Refills by another manufacturer work. This is ridiculous, and where do we report Teva and who can check each pill for amount for medication? I would gladly donate some of my worthless ones to the FDA? ## You'd have to report any complaints to the FDA, at 888-INFO-FDA. However, there may not actually be anything to report. They do allow generic medications to differ from the name brands, in the amount of the active ingredient, by up to plus or minus 20%. This is considered an acceptable therapeutic window. For most people, these differences don't cause any problems, but if someone is sensitive to medications, it means that one with a slightly ...

Difficulty with Teva Diazepam (Valium) changing each lot

I am so confused about Teva diazepam in the US. I can get one batch of it and be OK for a while and then the next batch I am in cold turkey withdrawal symptoms. The last time this happened was in May and the pharmacy exchanged it for a different lot. The new lot still wasn't as good as the old one, but it was better. And I got used to it. And now the newest one I got is even worse where I've had daily headaches and extreme agitation. This pharmacy in particular always puts lot numbers on their bottles so I can see when it changes. But I wasn't looking for it. I only noticed the symptoms about 5 days after changing and looked at the bottle and then saw for the six months prior (I'm collecting the pharmacy bottles for an art project) I was getting the same lot. As soon as ...

Glutethimide Is The Best Hypnotic

Sadly Glutethimide (Doriden) was discontinued by the last remaining manufacturer Halsey Drug (HD 550 on white round tablet) in late 1992. The DEA practically forced the FDA to make it a schedule ll drug with the ridiculously low quota of six grams. They were the best, especially with codeine ("Hits", "Cibas & codeine "). Yes they were abused but nothing like the opioid abuse epidemic of today. The last countries that used them were Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. Doriden inducted a liver enzyme CYPD26 if I recall correctly, that made the codeine convert to morphine 80 to 90% instead of the usual 10-15%. It was very long lasting and effective. Finding any Doriden would be like finding the holy grail. ## Yes, Glutethimide combined with codeine was big in my part of the ...

Green pill LU 602

What is a green pill with LU on one side and 602 on the other? ## I think that the imprint should actually read LU G02 where the G kind of looks like a 6 and the 0 is more like a solid cutout (NDC 68180-0468). Check out the image on the Lupin Pharma product page for Lovastatin 20 mg, which is a cholesterol lowering drug. Does the image match what you found? Inactive Ingredients: - Anhydrous Lactose - Butylated Hydroxyanisole - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - D&c Yellow No. 10 - Fd&c Blue No. 2 - Lactose Monohydrate - Magnesium Stearate - Starch, Pregelatinized Corn ## I located a couple pills with LU on them. One says LU D01 and it's green. This is Sertraline 25 mg, which is an antidepressant of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class. I also located another pi...

orange pill b 973 on one side 20 other abuse

What potential harm can happen if this drug is abused? ## Hello, Steve! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 20mgs of mixed amphetamine salts. The FDA classifies this medication as a stimulant that is most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, anorexia and weight loss. If someone abuses it, there is a risk of stroke, cardiac arrest, heart failure and/or respiratory failure, any of which could be fatal. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have the same pills. Mine are printed b973 and 20 on other side. On my friend's tablet, hers has b973 and 02 marked on it. Is this also the same? It tastes...

Doctors in Atlanta that prescribe Xanax?

Doctors in Atlanta that prescribe Xanax? No insurance. ## Hii did you have any luck with doctors in Atlanta? ## I'm looking for a new psychiatrist in the Atlanta GA area to prescribe Xanax for my severe anxiety/panic disorder. ## I know one inside perimeter that will prescribe 2mg off the bat, even along with adderall too (which is not supposed to be allowed). He is on the board of addiction medicine. Hides in plane sight. $150 cash walk in fee. Like 20 simple questions asked on a computer. If you fail you are an idiot. "Do you panic?" "Do you feel like you are going to die when these attacks start?" "Does your heart race?" .. crazy. Best kept secret in Atlanta. Only way i will tell you is in private, not on boards because he will blow up and the dea will mes...
