Can I mix these prescription medications?
I take seroquel and lamictal, bipolar medications. I have a really bad sinus infection. Does mucinex mix with these medications? I know there's only certian over the counter meds that mix with mine. If anyone who knows about these prescriptions could help me out that would be great. Please only answer if you know... Asked by Charley Claggett 1 year ago.

Mucinex is a multi-ingredient drug consisting of pseudoephedrine and guaifenesin. If you'd like to know more about how either one interacts with other medication, Google "pseudoephedrine drug interactions" and "guaifenesin drug interactions," although I don't believe you should be having any problems while on seroquel and lamictal. Here's a list of medication that WILL, however, interact with Mucinex, which I have looked into to double-check myself. I didn't see either of the two medications that you are on on any of the three lists, but here they are anyway, in case you'd like to see so for yourself: Major Interactions Atapryl, Azilect, Carbex, Eldepryl, Emsam, furazolidone, Furoxone, isocarboxazid, Jumex, linezolid, Marplan, Matulane, Nardil, Parnate, phenelzine, procarbazine, rasagiline, selegiline, Selgene, tranylcypromine, Zelapar, Zyvox Moderate Interactions acarbose, acetoHEXAMIDE, Aldomet, Amaryl, Apidra, Apidra OptiClik Cartridge, bromocriptine, chlorproPAMIDE, Citra pH, Citrate-Phos-Dex, D.H.E. 45, deserpidine, DiaBeta, Diabinese, dihydroergotamine, Dymelor, epoprostenol, ergoloid mesylates, Ergomar, ergonovine, ergotamine, Ergotrate Maleate, EXUBERA, EXUBERA Combination Pack 12, EXUBERA Combination Pack 15, EXUBERA Kit, Flolan, Fortamet, glimepiride, glipiZIDE, glipiZIDE extended release, GlipiZIDE XL, Glucophage, Glucophage XR, Glucotrol, Glucotrol XL, Glumetza, glyBURIDE, glyBURIDE micronized, Glynase PresTab, Glyset, guanadrel, guanethidine, Harmonyl, Humalog, Humalog Cartridge, Humalog KwikPen, Humalog Pen, Humulin L, Humulin N, Humulin N Pen, Humulin R, Humulin R (Concentrated), Humulin U, Hydergine, Hydergine LC, Hylorel, Iletin II Lente Pork, Iletin II NPH Pork, Iletin II Regular Pork, Iletin Lente, Iletin NPH, Iletin Regular, iloprost, insulin, insulin analog, insulin aspart, insulin aspart protamine, insulin detemir, insulin glargine, insulin glulisine, insulin inhalation, rapid acting, insulin isophane, Insulin Lente Pork, insulin lispro, insulin lispro protamine, Insulin Purified NPH Pork, Insulin Purified Regular Pork, insulin regular, insulin zinc, insulin zinc extended, insulin, lente, insulin, NPH, insulin, ultralente, Inversine, Ismelin, Januvia, Lantus, Lantus OptiClik Cartridge, Lantus Solostar Pen, Lente insulin, Levemir, Levemir FlexPen, Levemir InnoLet, Levemir PenFill, mecamylamine, Meridia, metformin, metformin extended release, Methergine, methyldopa, methylergonovine, methysergide maleate, Micronase, midodrine, miglitol, Migranal, nateglinide, Neut, Novolin L, Novolin N, Novolin N Innolet, Novolin N PenFill, Novolin R, Novolin R Innolet, Novolin R PenFill, NovoLog, NovoLog FlexPen, NovoLog PenFill, NPH insulin, Orinase, Orvaten, oxytocin, Parlodel, Pitocin, potassium citrate, Prandin, Precose, ProAmatine, prostacyclin, protamine zinc insulin, Rauwolfemms, Rauwolfia 1X, rauwolfia serpentina, regular insulin, Relion Novolin N, ReliOn/Novolin R, Remodulin, repaglinide, reserpine, Riomet, Sansert, sibutramine, sitagliptin, sodium acetate, sodium bicarbonate, sodium citrate, sodium lactate, Starlix, Syntocinon, Tham, Tol-Tab, TOLAZamide, TOLBUTamide, Tolinase, treprostinil, Tricitrasol, tromethamine, Twin-K, Ultralente insulin, Urocit-K, Velosulin BR, Ventavis Minor Interactions Acerola, ammonium chloride, Ascor L 500, ascorbic acid, Ascorbic Acid Quick Melts, Ascot, atomoxetine, C-Time, C/Rose Hips, Cardoxin, Cecon, Cee-500, Cemill 1000, Cemill 500, Cenolate, Centrum Singles-Vitamin C, Cevi-Bid, Cotameth, Digitek, digitoxin, digoxin, digoxin capsule, Ester-C, K-Phos Original, Lanoxicaps, Lanoxin, M-Caps, Mega-C/A Plus, methionine, N Ice with Vitamin C, Pedameth, potassium acid phosphate, sodium acid phosphate, sodium ascorbate, Strattera, Sunkist Vitamin C, Vicks Vitamin C Drops, Vitamin C, Vitamin C TR, Vitamin C with Rose Hips Answered by Kasey Muenchow 1 year ago.

Does anyone out there take Tracleer? How do you like it? Do you have pulmonary hypertension?
Yes I have been to the website. I'm interested in the reactions and results of someone that is taking Tracleer. Would like to know of a personal feeling. Thank you. Asked by Adelaida Hendrics 1 year ago.

I have PH and have been taking Tracleer since 2/07. It took about 3 months before it "kicked in", but once it did, I noticed a big improvement in my breathing. I was also on Flolan at that time, but have since been switched to Remodulin. I experience very little sob, even when exercising. Answered by Merrie Yuscak 1 year ago.


Can you take a shower when hooked up to an ambulatory infusion pump???
its a BardPort(with Open-Ended Catheter), previously used for chemo, now will be used for morphine.. Asked by Christoper Ferdin 1 year ago.

Yes, it is possible. You must protect your both your pump and insertion site from the water, though. Is your infusion pump able to be disconnected for a short period (as in an insulin pump) or is it life threating (as in Flolan)? This is a question for the physician's office who prescribed you the pump. However, you must ensure that there is an occlusive dressing over the insertion site, something that is water proof, and will not leak. Getting soap in the insertion site can cause inflammation/phlebitis of the vein. You can also acquire a serious infection. Please call the physician with these questions. Answered by Margarette Huckabay 1 year ago.

i also have a port, i think it would be ok to have a shower when your infusion isnt up even if you still have your gripper in but i wouldnt do it while the infusion was still running. By the way does your port bleed back? mine doesnt, it has only done it once when i first had it in, weird lol. Answered by Susann Beiriger 1 year ago.

How long does it take to die from heart failure?
Due to pulmonary hypertension. My mom has it and the doctors say she is at the beginning stages of heart failure. Btw she is only 42. Asked by Gwenn Harlston 1 year ago.

"How long does it take to die from heart failure?" -- The survival rates are roughly the same or worse as they are for cancer. The average is about 10 to (sometimes) 13 years and if the HF is symptomatic, about 4 to 5 years. Although many people can continue for years, about 7 out of 10 die within 10 years. Half the patients with serious symptoms die within a year. But it's best not to rely solely on statistics. People have died almost immediately after surgical correction and others have lived for another 50 years. A whole lot depends on how the situation is managed and how well your mom responds to her treatment. Her age works in her favor as well as the fact that her HF is not advanced. Remember that everyone is different and you should expect to have her around for a while yet. It would be of interest to know if the PH is primary or secondary and, if secondary, what the underlying condition is. The PH would need to be treated as it's the cause of the HF. "Harley Drive" has forgotten to mention that if Lasix is taken, potassium also has to be given. Generally speaking, patient with PH require supplemental oxygen, Coumadin or one of the other anticoagulants, a vasodilator such as Cardizem or Procardia to reduce pulmonary pressure and any of a number of other medications to choose from like Tracleer, Flolan and Adcirca. There are several medications her doctors can choose from to achieve different effects. But "Harley Drive" is not in a position to tell you what your mother needs and neither am I. Her cardiologist, who knows her case, will make this determination. Have faith and help her keep up her spirits. God Bless you both. Answered by Zenia Newenle 1 year ago.

she can live to 80 and beyond if she gets the right treatment, she should be on 40 -80 mg of furosemide by now along with a beta blocker and ace inhibitor and possibly a calcium channel blocker, she may also need a short spell on digoxin or amiodarone Answered by Min Bzhyan 1 year ago.
