Overdose on naproxen sodium?
if a teen was prescribed naproxen (one 550mg a day) for cramps, would they get high or o.d. or something?!?! i need to now asap, im worried about a friend!!! Asked by Emerson Fairless 2 years ago.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Anaprox with the following: ACE inhibitors such as the blood pressure medication captopril Antiseizure drugs such as phenytoin sodium Aspirin Beta blockers, including blood pressure drugs such as propranolol hydrochloride Blood thinners such as warfarin sodium Certain water pills (diuretics) such as furosemide Lithium Methotrexate Naproxen in other forms, such as naproxen Oral diabetes drugs such as glyburide Other pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen Probenecid Warfarin If you have more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day, check with your doctor before using painkillers. Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose. If you suspect an overdose of Anaprox, seek medical attention immediately. * Symptoms of Anaprox overdose may include: Drowsiness, heartburn, indigestion, nausea, vomiting Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose.

Asked by Erna Laraway 2 years ago.

So i had a miscarriage 2 months ago and since then i have been going to the follow-up appointments and my hcg levels have not gone completely down they stayed at 11. so my doctor prescribed me the mysoprostol pill which is i guess like the abortion pill and that only helped it go down to 8 i took the pill last monday. now the doctor tells me that since it only went down to 8 they want to prescribe me the METHOTREXATE SODIUM injection. However i am very unsure on whether i should take it or not. I am afraid that it could damage any future pregnancies. I continue to ask them why this is happening but they still remain without answer saying everyones body is diff. Answered by Lewis Palmrose 2 years ago.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot. And instinct should be enough for you to go to another doctor and get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion, until you feel like you're doing the right thing. Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts. That voice inside of you doesn't lie, and there is a mind-body connection that each person has inside of them. Get your research and second opinions together, and don't get that shot unless you feel like its the right thing to do for YOU. Answered by Aleshia Kale 2 years ago.

I am by no means an expert in hcg levels, but it seems to me that your body just needs time. I personally would not accept the shot. Perhaps if the level did not go down after at least a few more months, I would. But, not after only 2 months. I would at least recommend getting a second opinion before doing anything you're not completely comfortable with. Answered by Marilu Czarnota 2 years ago.

My father is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) is it harmful for the liver?
My father has a history of fatty liver and he is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) 3 times a week to help him exercise. Does taking Namproxen Sodium outweighs the benefits due to the fact of his liver condition? Asked by Delphia Bosson 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

Does taking Namproxen Sodium outweighs the benefits due to the fact of his liver condition? Answered by Deon Jurado 2 years ago.

No, any medication is filtered by the liver anyway. This is what the liver does. The benefits of exercise for his health and body are allot better then any problems his liver might have filtering it. A fatty liver isn't as bad as you may think. Although it's not as healthy as a normal liver, it's allot better than it being cirrhotic. The medication would be more helpful for your father than not taking it. Good luck and God Bless Answered by Alease Kevin 2 years ago.

Hi I'm leslie. I'm 15 years old and have microscopic polyarteritis nodosa, ADHD, OCD, post tramatic depression, anxiety, and many other problems. I take pillls 4x a day to function- methotrexate sodium, diclofenac sodium, amitryptaline, clonidine, strattera, fluxotine and fluvoxotine. The spelling probably isn't correct but yea. I know cold turkeying is bad but it's annoying and causes a feeling of dependency when you take so many pills. I haven't been eating or hungry since I stopped all about a week and a half ago.

Anorexia is a mental illness that is developed when people continue to deny themselves food, even when they're hungry. If continued, this can become an addiction and is really hard to stop. It does not sound like stopping your pills is causing anorexia, but it's certainly making you very sick. This is very dangerous for both your physical and mental health. In the past, I have stopped taking my psychiatric medications without telling anyone, and I ended up in a medical hospital for four days, and then I was transferred to an adolescent unit in a psych hospital. I'm a girl only a year older than you, so I can understand how it feels to not want to take medications, especially if you don't want them to rule your life. They way you did it, however, is again very, very dangerous. Talk to your doctor about it, and maybe you can try getting off of some of them. It sounds like you actually do need some of your medications, and that's something you will have to learn to accept. You might feel that they make you weak, but actually, not taking them makes you weak because you're not taking care of yourself. When you have a fever you take medicine right? Or a headache? Or (if you have asthma) you take your inhaler when you need it don't you? The list can go on, and this is the same thing. Answered by Kendra Heltsley 2 years ago.

You should start taking your pills again. For sure. I was once on Lexapro and started trying to wean off it and then I totally blacked out for days! My mom had to do everything for me! I had no control over my actions or thoughts! My mom thought I was going to be mentally disabled for life! Just go to your doctor, or actually go to a NEW doctor! (why would they put you on ALL of that medicine at once? It just doesn't make sense to me) You need to let a doctor know everything you are on and how it is making you feel. I hope you can find a way to get better and not have to depend on all that medicine. Answered by Chu Langmyer 2 years ago.

If you stop taking pills that you need just cold turkey, then your body is going to react to not having them anymore. You're detoxing right now. Never quit drugs/pills cold turkey.

you should never go off prescribed medications cold turkey. FIRST, you should discuss this with your doctor. if he/she agrees then you should wane of slowly, lowering the dose of the pills day by day till your body can handle and control itself without the pills. your body is reacting badly toward the missing of pills. that's what happens when alcoholics and drug addicts get off their stuff, their body reacts badly. you should always do this under the eye of a doctor. tell your doctor, please Answered by Khalilah Riech 2 years ago.

Do you suffer from, or is the onset of arthritis starting to make it's presence known?
Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, I can't go a night without waking up from the pain in my shoulders. Is there any medication that can help? Asked by Barbar Trotti 2 years ago.

DMARDS -- Disease modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs are many -- They are best used at the early stages of RA, but can help throughout. Commonly used oral DMARDs: Antimalarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or chloroquine (Aralen) Leflunomide (Arava) Methotrexate such as Rheumatrex Sulfasalazine such as Azulfidine Less commonly used oral DMARDs: Azathioprine such as Imuran Cyclophosphamide such as Cytoxan or Neosar Cyclosporine such as Neoral or Sandimmune Gold salts such as Ridaura or Aurolate Minocycline such as Dynacin or Minocin Penicillamine such as Cuprimine or Depen Biological DMARDs: Abatacept (Orencia) Adalimumab (Humira) Anakinra (Kineret) Etanercept (Enbrel) Infliximab (Remicade) Rituximab (Rituxan) Also NSAIDS -- None steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Naproxen Sodium and so on can help with inflammation and pain. Immunosuppressant drugs can help immensely but have to be used with care due to side effects and the effects of a suppressed immune system -- Corticosteroids like prednisone are commonly used. Finally stronger opioid analgesics (painkillers) are prescribed for pain that cannot be controlled through other means -- Darvocet, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine products and so on would fall into this category. Usually a combination of all treatments with lifestyle modification is the best combination treatment. A rheumatologist would be your best bet for the most informed doctor to manage your RA.

as always consult your pharmacist or the prescribing medical doctor for questions regarding your medications --i would not to be on the safe side read this from web md Some products that may interact with this drug include: live bacterial vaccines (e.g., typhoid, BCG), "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone, hydrocortisone), cyclosporine, drugs removed from your body by certain liver enzymes (such as clozapine, duloxetine, phenytoin, ropinirole, tacrine), drugs for diabetes (e.g., glyburide, insulin), methotrexate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen), probenecid, sevelamer, strontium, tizanidine, theophylline, urinary alkalinizers (e.g., potassium/sodium citrate). Many drugs besides ciprofloxacin may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, dofetilide, quinidine, procainamide, sotalol, certain macrolide antibiotics (e.g., erythromycin, clarithromycin), and certain antipsychotic medications (e.g., pimozide, thioridazine, ziprasidone), among others. Also report the use of drugs that might increase seizure risk when combined with this medication such as isoniazid (INH), phenothiazines (e.g., chlorpromazine), or tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline), among others. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas), eating large amounts of chocolate, or taking over-the-counter products that contain caffeine to keep you awake and alert. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Although most antibiotics probably do not affect hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring, some antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness. This could cause pregnancy.

I never had any health problems before and just about two years ago I both the psoriasis and colitis seemed to have arrived together. I have been seeing a dermatologist for a while and he said psoriasis without hesitation. There is not a part on my body that is uneffected by the psoriasis. Just resently I had all the great colon tests (at 20 years old) and told i have severe ulcerative colitis. I seem to be the only person thinking there might be some kind of link between these two horrible/un-curable diseases. Any thoughts? Answered by Pedro Viera 2 years ago.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response. I don't know the specific etology of psoriasis, but here is a blurb from my online text about other skin conditions associated with UC. The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment. These include hyper-sensitivity, photosensitivity, and urticarial rashes related to sulfasalazine and less commonly to mesalamines. Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration. Pyoderma gangrenosum may resolve with treatment of the underlying colitis. Most cases usually respond to intra-lesional glucocorticoid injections or topical therapy with cromolyn sodium, mesalamine, glucocorticoids, or tacrolimus. More severe cases may require systemic glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants, such as cyclo-sporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, and tacrolimus, dapsone, or infliximab. Other less common skin manifestations associated with UC include Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, and pyodermite végétante Hallopeau. The latter has a similar presentation to pyoderma gangrenosum but also involves the mouth Answered by Angelika Osofsky 2 years ago.

if a teen was prescribed naproxen (one 550mg a day) for cramps, would they get high or o.d. or something?!?! i need to now asap, im worried about a friend!!! Asked by Donetta Zaidi 2 years ago.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Anaprox with the following: ACE inhibitors such as the blood pressure medication captopril Antiseizure drugs such as phenytoin sodium Aspirin Beta blockers, including blood pressure drugs such as propranolol hydrochloride Blood thinners such as warfarin sodium Certain water pills (diuretics) such as furosemide Lithium Methotrexate Naproxen in other forms, such as naproxen Oral diabetes drugs such as glyburide Other pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen Probenecid Warfarin If you have more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day, check with your doctor before using painkillers. Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose. If you suspect an overdose of Anaprox, seek medical attention immediately. * Symptoms of Anaprox overdose may include: Drowsiness, heartburn, indigestion, nausea, vomiting Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot. And instinct should be enough for you to go to another doctor and get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion, until you feel like you're doing the right thing. Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts. That voice inside of you doesn't lie, and there is a mind-body connection that each person has inside of them. Get your research and second opinions together, and don't get that shot unless you feel like its the right thing to do for YOU. Answered by Jude Vanvalen 2 years ago.

I am by no means an expert in hcg levels, but it seems to me that your body just needs time. I personally would not accept the shot. Perhaps if the level did not go down after at least a few more months, I would. But, not after only 2 months. I would at least recommend getting a second opinion before doing anything you're not completely comfortable with. Answered by Lana Tevebaugh 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

Do you suffer from, or is the onset of arthritis starting to make it's presence known?
Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, I can't go a night without waking up from the pain in my shoulders. Is there any medication that can help? Asked by Floy Edwardson 2 years ago.

DMARDS -- Disease modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs are many -- They are best used at the early stages of RA, but can help throughout. Commonly used oral DMARDs: Antimalarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or chloroquine (Aralen) Leflunomide (Arava) Methotrexate such as Rheumatrex Sulfasalazine such as Azulfidine Less commonly used oral DMARDs: Azathioprine such as Imuran Cyclophosphamide such as Cytoxan or Neosar Cyclosporine such as Neoral or Sandimmune Gold salts such as Ridaura or Aurolate Minocycline such as Dynacin or Minocin Penicillamine such as Cuprimine or Depen Biological DMARDs: Abatacept (Orencia) Adalimumab (Humira) Anakinra (Kineret) Etanercept (Enbrel) Infliximab (Remicade) Rituximab (Rituxan) Also NSAIDS -- None steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Naproxen Sodium and so on can help with inflammation and pain. Immunosuppressant drugs can help immensely but have to be used with care due to side effects and the effects of a suppressed immune system -- Corticosteroids like prednisone are commonly used. Finally stronger opioid analgesics (painkillers) are prescribed for pain that cannot be controlled through other means -- Darvocet, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine products and so on would fall into this category. Usually a combination of all treatments with lifestyle modification is the best combination treatment. A rheumatologist would be your best bet for the most informed doctor to manage your RA.

Taking Ciprofloxacin.?

as always consult your pharmacist or the prescribing medical doctor for questions regarding your medications --i would not to be on the safe side read this from web md Some products that may interact with this drug include: live bacterial vaccines (e.g., typhoid, BCG), "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone, hydrocortisone), cyclosporine, drugs removed from your body by certain liver enzymes (such as clozapine, duloxetine, phenytoin, ropinirole, tacrine), drugs for diabetes (e.g., glyburide, insulin), methotrexate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen), probenecid, sevelamer, strontium, tizanidine, theophylline, urinary alkalinizers (e.g., potassium/sodium citrate). Many drugs besides ciprofloxacin may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, dofetilide, quinidine, procainamide, sotalol, certain macrolide antibiotics (e.g., erythromycin, clarithromycin), and certain antipsychotic medications (e.g., pimozide, thioridazine, ziprasidone), among others. Also report the use of drugs that might increase seizure risk when combined with this medication such as isoniazid (INH), phenothiazines (e.g., chlorpromazine), or tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline), among others. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas), eating large amounts of chocolate, or taking over-the-counter products that contain caffeine to keep you awake and alert. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Although most antibiotics probably do not affect hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring, some antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness. This could cause pregnancy. Examples include rifamycins such as rifampin or rifabutin. Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if you should use additional reliable birth control methods while using this antibiotic.

I never had any health problems before and just about two years ago I both the psoriasis and colitis seemed to have arrived together. I have been seeing a dermatologist for a while and he said psoriasis without hesitation. There is not a part on my body that is uneffected by the psoriasis. Just resently I had all the great colon tests (at 20 years old) and told i have severe ulcerative colitis. I seem to be the only person thinking there might be some kind of link between these two horrible/un-curable diseases. Any thoughts? Answered by Kareen Talvy 2 years ago.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response. I don't know the specific etology of psoriasis, but here is a blurb from my online text about other skin conditions associated with UC. The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment. These include hyper-sensitivity, photosensitivity, and urticarial rashes related to sulfasalazine and less commonly to mesalamines. Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration. Pyoderma gangrenosum may resolve with treatment of the underlying colitis. Most cases usually respond to intra-lesional glucocorticoid injections or topical therapy with cromolyn sodium, mesalamine, glucocorticoids, or tacrolimus. More severe cases may require systemic glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants, such as cyclo-sporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, and tacrolimus, dapsone, or infliximab. Other less common skin manifestations associated with UC include Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, and pyodermite végétante Hallopeau. The latter has a similar presentation to pyoderma gangrenosum but also involves the mouth Answered by Melida Sheston 2 years ago.

Overdose on naproxen sodium?
if a teen was prescribed naproxen (one 550mg a day) for cramps, would they get high or o.d. or something?!?! i need to now asap, im worried about a friend!!! Asked by Dylan Defries 2 years ago.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Anaprox with the following: ACE inhibitors such as the blood pressure medication captopril Antiseizure drugs such as phenytoin sodium Aspirin Beta blockers, including blood pressure drugs such as propranolol hydrochloride Blood thinners such as warfarin sodium Certain water pills (diuretics) such as furosemide Lithium Methotrexate Naproxen in other forms, such as naproxen Oral diabetes drugs such as glyburide Other pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen Probenecid Warfarin If you have more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day, check with your doctor before using painkillers. Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose. If you suspect an overdose of Anaprox, seek medical attention immediately. * Symptoms of Anaprox overdose may include: Drowsiness, heartburn, indigestion, nausea, vomiting Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot. And instinct should be enough for you to go to another doctor and get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion, until you feel like you're doing the right thing. Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts. That voice inside of you doesn't lie, and there is a mind-body connection that each person has inside of them. Get your research and second opinions together, and don't get that shot unless you feel like its the right thing to do for YOU. Answered by Eloisa Gullatte 2 years ago.

I am by no means an expert in hcg levels, but it seems to me that your body just needs time. I personally would not accept the shot. Perhaps if the level did not go down after at least a few more months, I would. But, not after only 2 months. I would at least recommend getting a second opinion before doing anything you're not completely comfortable with. Answered by Virginia Mcfarlane 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

No, any medication is filtered by the liver anyway. This is what the liver does. The benefits of exercise for his health and body are allot better then any problems his liver might have filtering it.

Anorexia is a mental illness that is developed when people continue to deny themselves food, even when they're hungry. If continued, this can become an addiction and is really hard to stop. It does not sound like stopping your pills is causing anorexia, but it's certainly making you very sick. This is very dangerous for both your physical and mental health. In the past, I have stopped taking my psychiatric medications without telling anyone, and I ended up in a medical hospital for four days, and then I was transferred to an adolescent unit in a psych hospital. I'm a girl only a year older than you, so I can understand how it feels to not want to take medications, especially if you don't want them to rule your life. They way you did it, however, is again very, very dangerous. Talk to your doctor about it, and maybe you can try getting off of some of them. It sounds like you actually do need some of your medications, and that's something you will have to learn to accept. You might feel that they make you weak, but actually, not taking them makes you weak because you're not taking care of yourself. When you have a fever you take medicine right? Or a headache? Or (if you have asthma) you take your inhaler when you need it don't you? The list can go on, and this is the same thing. Answered by Coleman Melius 2 years ago.

You should start taking your pills again. For sure. I was once on Lexapro and started trying to wean off it and then I totally blacked out for days! My mom had to do everything for me!

(why would they put you on ALL of that medicine at once? It just doesn't make sense to me) You need to let a doctor know everything you are on and how it is making you feel.

Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas), eating large amounts of chocolate, or taking over-the-counter products that contain caffeine to keep you awake and alert. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Although most antibiotics probably do not affect hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring, some antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness. This could cause pregnancy.

I never had any health problems before and just about two years ago I both the psoriasis and colitis seemed to have arrived together. I have been seeing a dermatologist for a while and he said psoriasis without hesitation. There is not a part on my body that is uneffected by the psoriasis. Just resently I had all the great colon tests (at 20 years old) and told i have severe ulcerative colitis. I seem to be the only person thinking there might be some kind of link between these two horrible/un-curable diseases. Any thoughts? Answered by Devona Sknerski 2 years ago.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response. I don't know the specific etology of psoriasis, but here is a blurb from my online text about other skin conditions associated with UC. The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment. These include hyper-sensitivity, photosensitivity, and urticarial rashes related to sulfasalazine and less commonly to mesalamines. Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration. Pyoderma gangrenosum may resolve with treatment of the underlying colitis. Most cases usually respond to intra-lesional glucocorticoid injections or topical therapy with cromolyn sodium, mesalamine, glucocorticoids, or tacrolimus. More severe cases may require systemic glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants, such as cyclo-sporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, and tacrolimus, dapsone, or infliximab. Other less common skin manifestations associated with UC include Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, and pyodermite végétante Hallopeau. The latter has a similar presentation to pyoderma gangrenosum but also involves the mouth Answered by Nga Belfast 2 years ago.

Overdose on naproxen sodium?
if a teen was prescribed naproxen (one 550mg a day) for cramps, would they get high or o.d. or something?!?! i need to now asap, im worried about a friend!!! Asked by Marisha Lebeda 2 years ago.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Anaprox with the following: ACE inhibitors such as the blood pressure medication captopril Antiseizure drugs such as phenytoin sodium Aspirin Beta blockers, including blood pressure drugs such as propranolol hydrochloride Blood thinners such as warfarin sodium Certain water pills (diuretics) such as furosemide Lithium Methotrexate Naproxen in other forms, such as naproxen Oral diabetes drugs such as glyburide Other pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen Probenecid Warfarin If you have more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day, check with your doctor before using painkillers. Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot. And instinct should be enough for you to go to another doctor and get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion, until you feel like you're doing the right thing. Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts. That voice inside of you doesn't lie, and there is a mind-body connection that each person has inside of them. Get your research and second opinions together, and don't get that shot unless you feel like its the right thing to do for YOU. Answered by Tenisha Kirstein 2 years ago.

I am by no means an expert in hcg levels, but it seems to me that your body just needs time. I personally would not accept the shot. Perhaps if the level did not go down after at least a few more months, I would. But, not after only 2 months. I would at least recommend getting a second opinion before doing anything you're not completely comfortable with. Answered by Misty Vrablic 2 years ago.

My father is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) is it harmful for the liver?
My father has a history of fatty liver and he is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) 3 times a week to help him exercise. Does taking Namproxen Sodium outweighs the benefits due to the fact of his liver condition? Asked by Ileana Mulder 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

No, any medication is filtered by the liver anyway. This is what the liver does. The benefits of exercise for his health and body are allot better then any problems his liver might have filtering it. A fatty liver isn't as bad as you may think. Although it's not as healthy as a normal liver, it's allot better than it being cirrhotic.

Anorexia is a mental illness that is developed when people continue to deny themselves food, even when they're hungry. If continued, this can become an addiction and is really hard to stop. It does not sound like stopping your pills is causing anorexia, but it's certainly making you very sick. This is very dangerous for both your physical and mental health. In the past, I have stopped taking my psychiatric medications without telling anyone, and I ended up in a medical hospital for four days, and then I was transferred to an adolescent unit in a psych hospital. I'm a girl only a year older than you, so I can understand how it feels to not want to take medications, especially if you don't want them to rule your life. They way you did it, however, is again very, very dangerous. Talk to your doctor about it, and maybe you can try getting off of some of them. It sounds like you actually do need some of your medications, and that's something you will have to learn to accept. You might feel that they make you weak, but actually, not taking them makes you weak because you're not taking care of yourself. When you have a fever you take medicine right? Or a headache? Or (if you have asthma) you take your inhaler when you need it don't you? The list can go on, and this is the same thing. Answered by Chara Ferryman 2 years ago.

You should start taking your pills again. For sure. I was once on Lexapro and started trying to wean off it and then I totally blacked out for days! My mom had to do everything for me! I had no control over my actions or thoughts! My mom thought I was going to be mentally disabled for life! Just go to your doctor, or actually go to a NEW doctor! (why would they put you on ALL of that medicine at once? It just doesn't make sense to me) You need to let a doctor know everything you are on and how it is making you feel. I hope you can find a way to get better and not have to depend on all that medicine. Answered by Williams Coltrain 2 years ago.

DMARDS -- Disease modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs are many -- They are best used at the early stages of RA, but can help throughout. Commonly used oral DMARDs: Antimalarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or chloroquine (Aralen) Leflunomide (Arava) Methotrexate such as Rheumatrex Sulfasalazine such as Azulfidine Less commonly used oral DMARDs: Azathioprine such as Imuran Cyclophosphamide such as Cytoxan or Neosar Cyclosporine such as Neoral or Sandimmune Gold salts such as Ridaura or Aurolate Minocycline such as Dynacin or Minocin Penicillamine such as Cuprimine or Depen Biological DMARDs: Abatacept (Orencia) Adalimumab (Humira) Anakinra (Kineret) Etanercept (Enbrel) Infliximab (Remicade) Rituximab (Rituxan) Also NSAIDS -- None steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Naproxen Sodium and so on can help with inflammation and pain. Immunosuppressant drugs can help immensely but have to be used with care due to side effects and the effects of a suppressed immune system -- Corticosteroids like prednisone are commonly used. Finally stronger opioid analgesics (painkillers) are prescribed for pain that cannot be controlled through other means -- Darvocet, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine products and so on would fall into this category. Usually a combination of all treatments with lifestyle modification is the best combination treatment. A rheumatologist would be your best bet for the most informed doctor to manage your RA.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response.

The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment.

Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration.

if a teen was prescribed naproxen (one 550mg a day) for cramps, would they get high or o.d. or something?!?! i need to now asap, im worried about a friend!!! Asked by Karine Bemer 2 years ago.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot. And instinct should be enough for you to go to another doctor and get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion, until you feel like you're doing the right thing. Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts. That voice inside of you doesn't lie, and there is a mind-body connection that each person has inside of them. Get your research and second opinions together, and don't get that shot unless you feel like its the right thing to do for YOU. Answered by Sharmaine Kohler 2 years ago.

I am by no means an expert in hcg levels, but it seems to me that your body just needs time. I personally would not accept the shot. Perhaps if the level did not go down after at least a few more months, I would. But, not after only 2 months. I would at least recommend getting a second opinion before doing anything you're not completely comfortable with. Answered by Leila Ramnarine 2 years ago.

My father is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) is it harmful for the liver?
My father has a history of fatty liver and he is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) 3 times a week to help him exercise. Does taking Namproxen Sodium outweighs the benefits due to the fact of his liver condition? Asked by Tran Chirino 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

No, any medication is filtered by the liver anyway. This is what the liver does. The benefits of exercise for his health and body are allot better then any problems his liver might have filtering it. A fatty liver isn't as bad as you may think. Although it's not as healthy as a normal liver, it's allot better than it being cirrhotic.

Anorexia is a mental illness that is developed when people continue to deny themselves food, even when they're hungry. If continued, this can become an addiction and is really hard to stop. It does not sound like stopping your pills is causing anorexia, but it's certainly making you very sick. This is very dangerous for both your physical and mental health. In the past, I have stopped taking my psychiatric medications without telling anyone, and I ended up in a medical hospital for four days, and then I was transferred to an adolescent unit in a psych hospital. I'm a girl only a year older than you, so I can understand how it feels to not want to take medications, especially if you don't want them to rule your life. They way you did it, however, is again very, very dangerous. Talk to your doctor about it, and maybe you can try getting off of some of them. It sounds like you actually do need some of your medications, and that's something you will have to learn to accept. You might feel that they make you weak, but actually, not taking them makes you weak because you're not taking care of yourself. When you have a fever you take medicine right? Or a headache? Or (if you have asthma) you take your inhaler when you need it don't you? The list can go on, and this is the same thing. Answered by Renay Boyea 2 years ago.

You should start taking your pills again. For sure. I was once on Lexapro and started trying to wean off it and then I totally blacked out for days! My mom had to do everything for me! I had no control over my actions or thoughts! My mom thought I was going to be mentally disabled for life! Just go to your doctor, or actually go to a NEW doctor! (why would they put you on ALL of that medicine at once? It just doesn't make sense to me) You need to let a doctor know everything you are on and how it is making you feel. I hope you can find a way to get better and not have to depend on all that medicine. Answered by Caryl Policz 2 years ago.

If you stop taking pills that you need just cold turkey, then your body is going to react to not having them anymore. You're detoxing right now. Never quit drugs/pills cold turkey.

Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, I can't go a night without waking up from the pain in my shoulders. Is there any medication that can help? Asked by Sabra Strous 2 years ago.

DMARDS -- Disease modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs are many -- They are best used at the early stages of RA, but can help throughout. Commonly used oral DMARDs: Antimalarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or chloroquine (Aralen) Leflunomide (Arava) Methotrexate such as Rheumatrex Sulfasalazine such as Azulfidine Less commonly used oral DMARDs: Azathioprine such as Imuran Cyclophosphamide such as Cytoxan or Neosar Cyclosporine such as Neoral or Sandimmune Gold salts such as Ridaura or Aurolate Minocycline such as Dynacin or Minocin Penicillamine such as Cuprimine or Depen Biological DMARDs: Abatacept (Orencia) Adalimumab (Humira) Anakinra (Kineret) Etanercept (Enbrel) Infliximab (Remicade) Rituximab (Rituxan) Also NSAIDS -- None steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Naproxen Sodium and so on can help with inflammation and pain. Immunosuppressant drugs can help immensely but have to be used with care due to side effects and the effects of a suppressed immune system -- Corticosteroids like prednisone are commonly used. Finally stronger opioid analgesics (painkillers) are prescribed for pain that cannot be controlled through other means -- Darvocet, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine products and so on would fall into this category. Usually a combination of all treatments with lifestyle modification is the best combination treatment. A rheumatologist would be your best bet for the most informed doctor to manage your RA.

as always consult your pharmacist or the prescribing medical doctor for questions regarding your medications --i would not to be on the safe side read this from web md Some products that may interact with this drug include: live bacterial vaccines (e.g., typhoid, BCG), "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone, hydrocortisone), cyclosporine, drugs removed from your body by certain liver enzymes (such as clozapine, duloxetine, phenytoin, ropinirole, tacrine), drugs for diabetes (e.g., glyburide, insulin), methotrexate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen), probenecid, sevelamer, strontium, tizanidine, theophylline, urinary alkalinizers (e.g., potassium/sodium citrate). Many drugs besides ciprofloxacin may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, dofetilide, quinidine, procainamide, sotalol, certain macrolide antibiotics (e.g., erythromycin, clarithromycin), and certain antipsychotic medications (e.g., pimozide, thioridazine, ziprasidone), among others. Also report the use of drugs that might increase seizure risk when combined with this medication such as isoniazid (INH), phenothiazines (e.g., chlorpromazine), or tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline), among others. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas), eating large amounts of chocolate, or taking over-the-counter products that contain caffeine to keep you awake and alert. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Although most antibiotics probably do not affect hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring, some antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness. This could cause pregnancy.

I never had any health problems before and just about two years ago I both the psoriasis and colitis seemed to have arrived together. I have been seeing a dermatologist for a while and he said psoriasis without hesitation. There is not a part on my body that is uneffected by the psoriasis. Just resently I had all the great colon tests (at 20 years old) and told i have severe ulcerative colitis. I seem to be the only person thinking there might be some kind of link between these two horrible/un-curable diseases. Any thoughts? Answered by Lisha Adjei 2 years ago.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response. I don't know the specific etology of psoriasis, but here is a blurb from my online text about other skin conditions associated with UC. The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment. These include hyper-sensitivity, photosensitivity, and urticarial rashes related to sulfasalazine and less commonly to mesalamines. Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration. Pyoderma gangrenosum may resolve with treatment of the underlying colitis. Most cases usually respond to intra-lesional glucocorticoid injections or topical therapy with cromolyn sodium, mesalamine, glucocorticoids, or tacrolimus. More severe cases may require systemic glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants, such as cyclo-sporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, and tacrolimus, dapsone, or infliximab. Other less common skin manifestations associated with UC include Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, and pyodermite végétante Hallopeau. The latter has a similar presentation to pyoderma gangrenosum but also involves the mouth Answered by Ivy Eron 2 years ago.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot.

Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts.

I would at least recommend getting a second opinion before doing anything you're not completely comfortable with. Answered by Judith Mohs 2 years ago.


What is the major of chemotherapy agents in anti-cancer drugs ?
Asked by Porfirio Boulos 2 years ago.

There are many different chemotherapy agents. Different drugs work for different cancers, and they are frequently used in combination. You need to be more specific. Here is a list of chemo drugs: 13-cis-Retinoic Acid 2-CdA 2-Chlorodeoxyadenosine 5-Fluorouracil 5-FU 6-Mercaptopurine 6-MP 6-TG 6-Thioguanine Abraxane Accutane ® Actinomycin-D Adriamycin ® Adrucil ® Agrylin ® Ala-Cort ® Aldesleukin Alemtuzumab ALIMTA Alitretinoin Alkaban-AQ ® Alkeran ® All-transretinoic acid Alpha interferon Altretamine Amethopterin Amifostine Aminoglutethimide Anagrelide Anandron ® Anastrozole Arabinosylcytosine Ara-C Aranesp ® Aredia ® Arimidex ® Aromasin ® Arranon ® Arsenic trioxide Asparaginase ATRA Avastin ® Azacitidine BCG BCNU Bevacizumab Bexarotene BEXXAR ® Bicalutamide BiCNU Blenoxane ® Bleomycin Bortezomib Busulfan Busulfex ® C225 Calcium Leucovorin Campath ® Camptosar ® Camptothecin-11 Capecitabine Carac ™ Carboplatin Carmustine Carmustine wafer Casodex ® CC-5013 CCNU CDDP CeeNU Cerubidine ® Cetuximab Chlorambucil Cisplatin Citrovorum Factor Cladribine Cortisone Cosmegen ® CPT-11 Cyclophosphamide Cytadren ® Cytarabine Cytarabine liposomal Cytosar-U ® Cytoxan ® Dacarbazine Dacogen Dactinomycin Darbepoetin alfa Daunomycin Daunorubicin Daunorubicin hydrochloride Daunorubicin liposomal DaunoXome ® Decadron Decitabine Delta-Cortef ® Deltasone ® Denileukin diftitox DepoCyt ™ Dexamethasone Dexamethasone acetate Dexamethasone Sodium Phosphate Dexasone Dexrazoxane DHAD DIC Diodex Docetaxel Doxil ® Doxorubicin Doxorubicin liposomal Droxia ™ DTIC DTIC-Dome ® Duralone ® Efudex ® Eligard ™ Ellence ™ Eloxatin ™ Elspar ® Emcyt ® Epirubicin Epoetin alfa Erbitux ™ Erlotinib Erwinia L-asparaginase Estramustine Ethyol Etopophos ® Etoposide Etoposide Phosphate Eulexin ® Evista ® Exemestane Fareston ® Faslodex ® Femara ® Filgrastim Floxuridine Fludara ® Fludarabine Fluoroplex ® Fluorouracil Fluorouracil (cream) Fluoxymesterone Flutamide Folinic Acid FUDR ® Fulvestrant G-CSF Gefitinib Gemcitabine Gemtuzumab ozogamicin Gemzar ® GleevecTM Gliadel wafer (t) GM-CSF Goserelin granulocyte - colony stimulating factor (t) Granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (o) Halotestin (t) Herceptin (t) Hexadrol (t) Hexalen (t) Hexamethylmelamine (t) HMM (t) Hycamtin (t) Hydrea (t) Hydrocort Acetate (t) Hydrocortisone Hydrocortisone sodium phosphate Hydrocortisone sodium succinate Hydrocortone phosphate (t) Hydroxyurea Ibritumomab Ibritumomab Tiuxetan Idamycin ® Idarubicin Ifex ® IFN-alpha Ifosfamide IL-11 IL-2 Imatinib mesylate Imidazole Carboxamide Interferon alfa Interferon Alfa-2b (PEG conjugate) (o) Interleukin - 2 (t) Interleukin-11 (o) Intron A® (interferon alfa-2b) Iressa ® Irinotecan Isotretinoin Kidrolase (t) Lanacort (t) L-asparaginase (t) LCR (o) Lenalidomide Letrozole Leucovorin Leukeran (t) Leukine (t) Leuprolide Leurocristine (o) Leustatin (t) Liposomal Ara-C (t) Liquid Pred (t) Lomustine L-PAM (o) L-Sarcolysin (o) Lupron (t) Lupron Depot ® Matulane (t) Maxidex (t) Mechlorethamine Mechlorethamine Hydrochloride Medralone (t) Medrol ® Megace (t) Megestrol Megestrol Acetate (o) Melphalan Mercaptopurine Mesna Mesnex (t) Methotrexate Methotrexate Sodium (o) Methylprednisolone Meticorten (t) Mitomycin Mitomycin-C (o) Mitoxantrone M-Prednisol (t) MTC (o) MTX (o) Mustargen (t) Mustine Mutamycin (t) Myleran (t) Mylocel (t) Mylotarg (t) Navelbine ® Nelarabine Neosar (t) Neulasta (t) Neumega (t) Neupogen ® Nexavar ® Nilandron (t) Nilutamide Nipent ® Nitrogen Mustard (o) Novaldex (t) Novantrone (t) Octreotide Octreotide acetate (o) Oncospar (t) Oncovin (t) Ontak (t) Onxal (t) Oprevelkin Orapred (t) Orasone (t) Oxaliplatin Paclitaxel Paclitaxel Protein-bound Pamidronate Panretin (t) Paraplatin (t) Pediapred (t) PEG Interferon Pegaspargase Pegfilgrastim PEG-INTRON (t) PEG-L-asparaginase PEMETREXED Pentostatin Phenylalanine Mustard (o) Platinol (t) Platinol-AQ (t) Prednisolone Prednisone Prelone (t) Procarbazine PROCRIT ® Proleukin (t) Prolifeprospan 20 with Carmustine implant (t) Purinethol ® Raloxifene Revlimid ® Rheumatrex (t) Rituxan (t) Rituximab Roferon-A® (interferon alfa-2a) Rubex (t) Rubidomycin hydrochloride (t) Sandostatin ® Sandostatin LAR (t) Sargramostim Solu-Cortef (t) Solu-Medrol (t) Sorafenib STI-571 Streptozocin SU11248 Sunitinib Sutent ® Tamoxifen Tarceva ® Targretin (t) Taxol ® Taxotere ® Temodar ® Temozolomide Teniposide TESPA (o) Thalidomide Thalomid ® TheraCys (t) Thioguanine Thioguanine Tabloid ® Thiophosphoamide (o) Thioplex (t) Thiotepa TICE ® Toposar (t) Topotecan Toremifene Tositumomab Trastuzumab Tretinoin Trexall (t) Trisenox (t) TSPA (o) VCR (o) Velban (t) Velcade ® VePesid (t) Vesanoid (t) Viadur (t) Vidaza (t) Vinblastine Vinblastine Sulfate (o) Vincasar Pfs (t) Vincristine Vinorelbine Vinorelbine tartrate (o) VLB (o) VM-26 (o) VP-16 (t) Vumon (t) Xeloda ® Zanosar (t) Zevalin TM Zinecard (t) Zoladex ® Zoledronic acid Zometa ® See?

My father is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) is it harmful for the liver?
My father has a history of fatty liver and he is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) 3 times a week to help him exercise. Does taking Namproxen Sodium outweighs the benefits due to the fact of his liver condition? Asked by Armanda Arrants 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

No, any medication is filtered by the liver anyway. This is what the liver does. The benefits of exercise for his health and body are allot better then any problems his liver might have filtering it. A fatty liver isn't as bad as you may think. Although it's not as healthy as a normal liver, it's allot better than it being cirrhotic. The medication would be more helpful for your father than not taking it. Good luck and God Bless Answered by Pa Mansouri 2 years ago.

Hi I'm leslie. I'm 15 years old and have microscopic polyarteritis nodosa, ADHD, OCD, post tramatic depression, anxiety, and many other problems. I take pillls 4x a day to function- methotrexate sodium, diclofenac sodium, amitryptaline, clonidine, strattera, fluxotine and fluvoxotine. The spelling probably isn't correct but yea. I know cold turkeying is bad but it's annoying and causes a feeling of dependency when you take so many pills. I haven't been eating or hungry since I stopped all about a week and a half ago. Also insomnia, throwing up, motionsickness, runny nose, and cold sweats. Help??? Answered by Vanda Economides 2 years ago.

Anorexia is a mental illness that is developed when people continue to deny themselves food, even when they're hungry. If continued, this can become an addiction and is really hard to stop. It does not sound like stopping your pills is causing anorexia, but it's certainly making you very sick. This is very dangerous for both your physical and mental health. In the past, I have stopped taking my psychiatric medications without telling anyone, and I ended up in a medical hospital for four days, and then I was transferred to an adolescent unit in a psych hospital. I'm a girl only a year older than you, so I can understand how it feels to not want to take medications, especially if you don't want them to rule your life. They way you did it, however, is again very, very dangerous. Talk to your doctor about it, and maybe you can try getting off of some of them. It sounds like you actually do need some of your medications, and that's something you will have to learn to accept. You might feel that they make you weak, but actually, not taking them makes you weak because you're not taking care of yourself. When you have a fever you take medicine right? Or a headache? Or (if you have asthma) you take your inhaler when you need it don't you? The list can go on, and this is the same thing. Answered by Zandra Bruckmeier 2 years ago.

You should start taking your pills again. For sure. I was once on Lexapro and started trying to wean off it and then I totally blacked out for days! My mom had to do everything for me! I had no control over my actions or thoughts! My mom thought I was going to be mentally disabled for life! Just go to your doctor, or actually go to a NEW doctor! (why would they put you on ALL of that medicine at once? It just doesn't make sense to me) You need to let a doctor know everything you are on and how it is making you feel. I hope you can find a way to get better and not have to depend on all that medicine. Answered by Robby Winsor 2 years ago.

If you stop taking pills that you need just cold turkey, then your body is going to react to not having them anymore. You're detoxing right now. Never quit drugs/pills cold turkey. And for the love of G-d, eat something. But nothing to rich, that would be a shock to your system. Try chicken soup. -Tila Answered by Minh Razze 2 years ago.

you should never go off prescribed medications cold turkey. FIRST, you should discuss this with your doctor. if he/she agrees then you should wane of slowly, lowering the dose of the pills day by day till your body can handle and control itself without the pills. your body is reacting badly toward the missing of pills. that's what happens when alcoholics and drug addicts get off their stuff, their body reacts badly. you should always do this under the eye of a doctor. tell your doctor, please Answered by Sean Bahoora 2 years ago.

Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, I can't go a night without waking up from the pain in my shoulders. Is there any medication that can help? Asked by Warren Mindingall 2 years ago.

DMARDS -- Disease modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs are many -- They are best used at the early stages of RA, but can help throughout. Commonly used oral DMARDs: Antimalarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or chloroquine (Aralen) Leflunomide (Arava) Methotrexate such as Rheumatrex Sulfasalazine such as Azulfidine Less commonly used oral DMARDs: Azathioprine such as Imuran Cyclophosphamide such as Cytoxan or Neosar Cyclosporine such as Neoral or Sandimmune Gold salts such as Ridaura or Aurolate Minocycline such as Dynacin or Minocin Penicillamine such as Cuprimine or Depen Biological DMARDs: Abatacept (Orencia) Adalimumab (Humira) Anakinra (Kineret) Etanercept (Enbrel) Infliximab (Remicade) Rituximab (Rituxan) Also NSAIDS -- None steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Naproxen Sodium and so on can help with inflammation and pain. Immunosuppressant drugs can help immensely but have to be used with care due to side effects and the effects of a suppressed immune system -- Corticosteroids like prednisone are commonly used. Finally stronger opioid analgesics (painkillers) are prescribed for pain that cannot be controlled through other means -- Darvocet, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine products and so on would fall into this category. Usually a combination of all treatments with lifestyle modification is the best combination treatment. A rheumatologist would be your best bet for the most informed doctor to manage your RA.

Taking Ciprofloxacin.?

as always consult your pharmacist or the prescribing medical doctor for questions regarding your medications --i would not to be on the safe side read this from web md Some products that may interact with this drug include: live bacterial vaccines (e.g., typhoid, BCG), "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone, hydrocortisone), cyclosporine, drugs removed from your body by certain liver enzymes (such as clozapine, duloxetine, phenytoin, ropinirole, tacrine), drugs for diabetes (e.g., glyburide, insulin), methotrexate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen), probenecid, sevelamer, strontium, tizanidine, theophylline, urinary alkalinizers (e.g., potassium/sodium citrate). Many drugs besides ciprofloxacin may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, dofetilide, quinidine, procainamide, sotalol, certain macrolide antibiotics (e.g., erythromycin, clarithromycin), and certain antipsychotic medications (e.g., pimozide, thioridazine, ziprasidone), among others. Also report the use of drugs that might increase seizure risk when combined with this medication such as isoniazid (INH), phenothiazines (e.g., chlorpromazine), or tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline), among others. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas), eating large amounts of chocolate, or taking over-the-counter products that contain caffeine to keep you awake and alert. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Although most antibiotics probably do not affect hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring, some antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness. This could cause pregnancy.

I never had any health problems before and just about two years ago I both the psoriasis and colitis seemed to have arrived together. I have been seeing a dermatologist for a while and he said psoriasis without hesitation. There is not a part on my body that is uneffected by the psoriasis. Just resently I had all the great colon tests (at 20 years old) and told i have severe ulcerative colitis. I seem to be the only person thinking there might be some kind of link between these two horrible/un-curable diseases. Any thoughts? Answered by Nick Truax 2 years ago.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response. I don't know the specific etology of psoriasis, but here is a blurb from my online text about other skin conditions associated with UC. The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment. These include hyper-sensitivity, photosensitivity, and urticarial rashes related to sulfasalazine and less commonly to mesalamines. Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration. Pyoderma gangrenosum may resolve with treatment of the underlying colitis. Most cases usually respond to intra-lesional glucocorticoid injections or topical therapy with cromolyn sodium, mesalamine, glucocorticoids, or tacrolimus. More severe cases may require systemic glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants, such as cyclo-sporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, and tacrolimus, dapsone, or infliximab. Other less common skin manifestations associated with UC include Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, and pyodermite végétante Hallopeau. The latter has a similar presentation to pyoderma gangrenosum but also involves the mouth Answered by Lashonda Sherbo 2 years ago.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Anaprox with the following: ACE inhibitors such as the blood pressure medication captopril Antiseizure drugs such as phenytoin sodium Aspirin Beta blockers, including blood pressure drugs such as propranolol hydrochloride Blood thinners such as warfarin sodium Certain water pills (diuretics) such as furosemide Lithium Methotrexate Naproxen in other forms, such as naproxen Oral diabetes drugs such as glyburide Other pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen Probenecid Warfarin If you have more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day, check with your doctor before using painkillers. Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose. If you suspect an overdose of Anaprox, seek medical attention immediately. * Symptoms of Anaprox overdose may include: Drowsiness, heartburn, indigestion, nausea, vomiting Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot. And instinct should be enough for you to go to another doctor and get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion, until you feel like you're doing the right thing. Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts. That voice inside of you doesn't lie, and there is a mind-body connection that each person has inside of them. Get your research and second opinions together, and don't get that shot unless you feel like its the right thing to do for YOU. Answered by Beckie Prich 2 years ago.

I am by no means an expert in hcg levels, but it seems to me that your body just needs time. I personally would not accept the shot.

My father is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) is it harmful for the liver?
My father has a history of fatty liver and he is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) 3 times a week to help him exercise. Does taking Namproxen Sodium outweighs the benefits due to the fact of his liver condition? Asked by Wilber Stickley 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

No, any medication is filtered by the liver anyway. This is what the liver does. The benefits of exercise for his health and body are allot better then any problems his liver might have filtering it. A fatty liver isn't as bad as you may think. Although it's not as healthy as a normal liver, it's allot better than it being cirrhotic. The medication would be more helpful for your father than not taking it. Good luck and God Bless Answered by Christian Chae 2 years ago.

Hi I'm leslie. I'm 15 years old and have microscopic polyarteritis nodosa, ADHD, OCD, post tramatic depression, anxiety, and many other problems. I take pillls 4x a day to function- methotrexate sodium, diclofenac sodium, amitryptaline, clonidine, strattera, fluxotine and fluvoxotine. The spelling probably isn't correct but yea. I know cold turkeying is bad but it's annoying and causes a feeling of dependency when you take so many pills. I haven't been eating or hungry since I stopped all about a week and a half ago. Also insomnia, throwing up, motionsickness, runny nose, and cold sweats. Help??? Answered by Helen Marander 2 years ago.

Anorexia is a mental illness that is developed when people continue to deny themselves food, even when they're hungry. If continued, this can become an addiction and is really hard to stop. It does not sound like stopping your pills is causing anorexia, but it's certainly making you very sick. This is very dangerous for both your physical and mental health. In the past, I have stopped taking my psychiatric medications without telling anyone, and I ended up in a medical hospital for four days, and then I was transferred to an adolescent unit in a psych hospital. I'm a girl only a year older than you, so I can understand how it feels to not want to take medications, especially if you don't want them to rule your life. They way you did it, however, is again very, very dangerous. Talk to your doctor about it, and maybe you can try getting off of some of them. It sounds like you actually do need some of your medications, and that's something you will have to learn to accept. You might feel that they make you weak, but actually, not taking them makes you weak because you're not taking care of yourself. When you have a fever you take medicine right? Or a headache? Or (if you have asthma) you take your inhaler when you need it don't you? The list can go on, and this is the same thing. Answered by Azalee Kapper 2 years ago.

You should start taking your pills again. For sure. I was once on Lexapro and started trying to wean off it and then I totally blacked out for days! My mom had to do everything for me! I had no control over my actions or thoughts! My mom thought I was going to be mentally disabled for life! Just go to your doctor, or actually go to a NEW doctor! (why would they put you on ALL of that medicine at once? It just doesn't make sense to me) You need to let a doctor know everything you are on and how it is making you feel. I hope you can find a way to get better and not have to depend on all that medicine. Answered by Catherine Utsey 2 years ago.

If you stop taking pills that you need just cold turkey, then your body is going to react to not having them anymore. You're detoxing right now. Never quit drugs/pills cold turkey. And for the love of G-d, eat something. But nothing to rich, that would be a shock to your system. Try chicken soup. -Tila Answered by Lean Hollenbaugh 2 years ago.

you should never go off prescribed medications cold turkey. FIRST, you should discuss this with your doctor. if he/she agrees then you should wane of slowly, lowering the dose of the pills day by day till your body can handle and control itself without the pills. your body is reacting badly toward the missing of pills. that's what happens when alcoholics and drug addicts get off their stuff, their body reacts badly. you should always do this under the eye of a doctor. tell your doctor, please Answered by Vernetta Laessig 2 years ago.

Do you suffer from, or is the onset of arthritis starting to make it's presence known?
Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, I can't go a night without waking up from the pain in my shoulders. Is there any medication that can help? Asked by Alyse Ondic 2 years ago.

DMARDS -- Disease modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs are many -- They are best used at the early stages of RA, but can help throughout. Commonly used oral DMARDs: Antimalarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or chloroquine (Aralen) Leflunomide (Arava) Methotrexate such as Rheumatrex Sulfasalazine such as Azulfidine Less commonly used oral DMARDs: Azathioprine such as Imuran Cyclophosphamide such as Cytoxan or Neosar Cyclosporine such as Neoral or Sandimmune Gold salts such as Ridaura or Aurolate Minocycline such as Dynacin or Minocin Penicillamine such as Cuprimine or Depen Biological DMARDs: Abatacept (Orencia) Adalimumab (Humira) Anakinra (Kineret) Etanercept (Enbrel) Infliximab (Remicade) Rituximab (Rituxan) Also NSAIDS -- None steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Naproxen Sodium and so on can help with inflammation and pain. Immunosuppressant drugs can help immensely but have to be used with care due to side effects and the effects of a suppressed immune system -- Corticosteroids like prednisone are commonly used. Finally stronger opioid analgesics (painkillers) are prescribed for pain that cannot be controlled through other means -- Darvocet, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine products and so on would fall into this category. Usually a combination of all treatments with lifestyle modification is the best combination treatment. A rheumatologist would be your best bet for the most informed doctor to manage your RA.

Taking Ciprofloxacin.?
Im taking Cipro 500mg and it says not to take antacids, iron or vitamins, Do you think its okay to take nght time sleep aid with this medication? Asked by Georgene Jakubiak 2 years ago.

as always consult your pharmacist or the prescribing medical doctor for questions regarding your medications --i would not to be on the safe side read this from web md Some products that may interact with this drug include: live bacterial vaccines (e.g., typhoid, BCG), "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone, hydrocortisone), cyclosporine, drugs removed from your body by certain liver enzymes (such as clozapine, duloxetine, phenytoin, ropinirole, tacrine), drugs for diabetes (e.g., glyburide, insulin), methotrexate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen), probenecid, sevelamer, strontium, tizanidine, theophylline, urinary alkalinizers (e.g., potassium/sodium citrate). Many drugs besides ciprofloxacin may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, dofetilide, quinidine, procainamide, sotalol, certain macrolide antibiotics (e.g., erythromycin, clarithromycin), and certain antipsychotic medications (e.g., pimozide, thioridazine, ziprasidone), among others. Also report the use of drugs that might increase seizure risk when combined with this medication such as isoniazid (INH), phenothiazines (e.g., chlorpromazine), or tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline), among others. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas), eating large amounts of chocolate, or taking over-the-counter products that contain caffeine to keep you awake and alert. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Although most antibiotics probably do not affect hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring, some antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness. This could cause pregnancy. Examples include rifamycins such as rifampin or rifabutin. Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if you should use additional reliable birth control methods while using this antibiotic.

I never had any health problems before and just about two years ago I both the psoriasis and colitis seemed to have arrived together. I have been seeing a dermatologist for a while and he said psoriasis without hesitation. There is not a part on my body that is uneffected by the psoriasis. Just resently I had all the great colon tests (at 20 years old) and told i have severe ulcerative colitis. I seem to be the only person thinking there might be some kind of link between these two horrible/un-curable diseases. Any thoughts? Answered by Ena Hellmich 2 years ago.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response. I don't know the specific etology of psoriasis, but here is a blurb from my online text about other skin conditions associated with UC. The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment. These include hyper-sensitivity, photosensitivity, and urticarial rashes related to sulfasalazine and less commonly to mesalamines. Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration. Pyoderma gangrenosum may resolve with treatment of the underlying colitis. Most cases usually respond to intra-lesional glucocorticoid injections or topical therapy with cromolyn sodium, mesalamine, glucocorticoids, or tacrolimus. More severe cases may require systemic glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants, such as cyclo-sporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, and tacrolimus, dapsone, or infliximab. Other less common skin manifestations associated with UC include Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, and pyodermite végétante Hallopeau. The latter has a similar presentation to pyoderma gangrenosum but also involves the mouth Answered by Ursula Consla 2 years ago.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Anaprox with the following: ACE inhibitors such as the blood pressure medication captopril Antiseizure drugs such as phenytoin sodium Aspirin Beta blockers, including blood pressure drugs such as propranolol hydrochloride Blood thinners such as warfarin sodium Certain water pills (diuretics) such as furosemide Lithium Methotrexate Naproxen in other forms, such as naproxen Oral diabetes drugs such as glyburide Other pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen Probenecid Warfarin If you have more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day, check with your doctor before using painkillers. Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose. If you suspect an overdose of Anaprox, seek medical attention immediately. * Symptoms of Anaprox overdose may include: Drowsiness, heartburn, indigestion, nausea, vomiting Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot. And instinct should be enough for you to go to another doctor and get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion, until you feel like you're doing the right thing. Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts. That voice inside of you doesn't lie, and there is a mind-body connection that each person has inside of them. Get your research and second opinions together, and don't get that shot unless you feel like its the right thing to do for YOU. Answered by Ria Hassell 2 years ago.

I am by no means an expert in hcg levels, but it seems to me that your body just needs time. I personally would not accept the shot. Perhaps if the level did not go down after at least a few more months, I would. But, not after only 2 months. I would at least recommend getting a second opinion before doing anything you're not completely comfortable with. Answered by Ila Scoles 2 years ago.

My father is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) is it harmful for the liver?
My father has a history of fatty liver and he is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) 3 times a week to help him exercise. Does taking Namproxen Sodium outweighs the benefits due to the fact of his liver condition? Asked by Ilse Dahlheimer 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

No, any medication is filtered by the liver anyway. This is what the liver does. The benefits of exercise for his health and body are allot better then any problems his liver might have filtering it. A fatty liver isn't as bad as you may think. Although it's not as healthy as a normal liver, it's allot better than it being cirrhotic. The medication would be more helpful for your father than not taking it. Good luck and God Bless Answered by Sophie Selbert 2 years ago.

Hi I'm leslie. I'm 15 years old and have microscopic polyarteritis nodosa, ADHD, OCD, post tramatic depression, anxiety, and many other problems. I take pillls 4x a day to function- methotrexate sodium, diclofenac sodium, amitryptaline, clonidine, strattera, fluxotine and fluvoxotine. The spelling probably isn't correct but yea. I know cold turkeying is bad but it's annoying and causes a feeling of dependency when you take so many pills. I haven't been eating or hungry since I stopped all about a week and a half ago. Also insomnia, throwing up, motionsickness, runny nose, and cold sweats. Help??? Answered by Katherina Kellis 2 years ago.

Anorexia is a mental illness that is developed when people continue to deny themselves food, even when they're hungry. If continued, this can become an addiction and is really hard to stop. It does not sound like stopping your pills is causing anorexia, but it's certainly making you very sick. This is very dangerous for both your physical and mental health. In the past, I have stopped taking my psychiatric medications without telling anyone, and I ended up in a medical hospital for four days, and then I was transferred to an adolescent unit in a psych hospital. I'm a girl only a year older than you, so I can understand how it feels to not want to take medications, especially if you don't want them to rule your life. They way you did it, however, is again very, very dangerous. Talk to your doctor about it, and maybe you can try getting off of some of them. It sounds like you actually do need some of your medications, and that's something you will have to learn to accept. You might feel that they make you weak, but actually, not taking them makes you weak because you're not taking care of yourself. When you have a fever you take medicine right? Or a headache? Or (if you have asthma) you take your inhaler when you need it don't you? The list can go on, and this is the same thing. Answered by Jose Dotson 2 years ago.

You should start taking your pills again. For sure. I was once on Lexapro and started trying to wean off it and then I totally blacked out for days! My mom had to do everything for me! I had no control over my actions or thoughts! My mom thought I was going to be mentally disabled for life! Just go to your doctor, or actually go to a NEW doctor! (why would they put you on ALL of that medicine at once? It just doesn't make sense to me) You need to let a doctor know everything you are on and how it is making you feel. I hope you can find a way to get better and not have to depend on all that medicine. Answered by Yuriko Audelhuk 2 years ago.

If you stop taking pills that you need just cold turkey, then your body is going to react to not having them anymore. You're detoxing right now. Never quit drugs/pills cold turkey. And for the love of G-d, eat something. But nothing to rich, that would be a shock to your system. Try chicken soup. -Tila Answered by Carlton Shabot 2 years ago.

you should never go off prescribed medications cold turkey. FIRST, you should discuss this with your doctor. if he/she agrees then you should wane of slowly, lowering the dose of the pills day by day till your body can handle and control itself without the pills. your body is reacting badly toward the missing of pills. that's what happens when alcoholics and drug addicts get off their stuff, their body reacts badly. you should always do this under the eye of a doctor. tell your doctor, please Answered by Felicidad Poe 2 years ago.

Do you suffer from, or is the onset of arthritis starting to make it's presence known?
Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, I can't go a night without waking up from the pain in my shoulders. Is there any medication that can help? Asked by Catarina Pourner 2 years ago.

DMARDS -- Disease modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs are many -- They are best used at the early stages of RA, but can help throughout. Commonly used oral DMARDs: Antimalarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or chloroquine (Aralen) Leflunomide (Arava) Methotrexate such as Rheumatrex Sulfasalazine such as Azulfidine Less commonly used oral DMARDs: Azathioprine such as Imuran Cyclophosphamide such as Cytoxan or Neosar Cyclosporine such as Neoral or Sandimmune Gold salts such as Ridaura or Aurolate Minocycline such as Dynacin or Minocin Penicillamine such as Cuprimine or Depen Biological DMARDs: Abatacept (Orencia) Adalimumab (Humira) Anakinra (Kineret) Etanercept (Enbrel) Infliximab (Remicade) Rituximab (Rituxan) Also NSAIDS -- None steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Naproxen Sodium and so on can help with inflammation and pain. Immunosuppressant drugs can help immensely but have to be used with care due to side effects and the effects of a suppressed immune system -- Corticosteroids like prednisone are commonly used. Finally stronger opioid analgesics (painkillers) are prescribed for pain that cannot be controlled through other means -- Darvocet, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine products and so on would fall into this category. Usually a combination of all treatments with lifestyle modification is the best combination treatment. A rheumatologist would be your best bet for the most informed doctor to manage your RA.

Taking Ciprofloxacin.?
Im taking Cipro 500mg and it says not to take antacids, iron or vitamins, Do you think its okay to take nght time sleep aid with this medication? Asked by Angila Followell 2 years ago.

as always consult your pharmacist or the prescribing medical doctor for questions regarding your medications --i would not to be on the safe side read this from web md Some products that may interact with this drug include: live bacterial vaccines (e.g., typhoid, BCG), "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone, hydrocortisone), cyclosporine, drugs removed from your body by certain liver enzymes (such as clozapine, duloxetine, phenytoin, ropinirole, tacrine), drugs for diabetes (e.g., glyburide, insulin), methotrexate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen), probenecid, sevelamer, strontium, tizanidine, theophylline, urinary alkalinizers (e.g., potassium/sodium citrate). Many drugs besides ciprofloxacin may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, dofetilide, quinidine, procainamide, sotalol, certain macrolide antibiotics (e.g., erythromycin, clarithromycin), and certain antipsychotic medications (e.g., pimozide, thioridazine, ziprasidone), among others. Also report the use of drugs that might increase seizure risk when combined with this medication such as isoniazid (INH), phenothiazines (e.g., chlorpromazine), or tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline), among others. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas), eating large amounts of chocolate, or taking over-the-counter products that contain caffeine to keep you awake and alert. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Although most antibiotics probably do not affect hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring, some antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness. This could cause pregnancy. Examples include rifamycins such as rifampin or rifabutin. Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if you should use additional reliable birth control methods while using this antibiotic.

I never had any health problems before and just about two years ago I both the psoriasis and colitis seemed to have arrived together. I have been seeing a dermatologist for a while and he said psoriasis without hesitation. There is not a part on my body that is uneffected by the psoriasis. Just resently I had all the great colon tests (at 20 years old) and told i have severe ulcerative colitis. I seem to be the only person thinking there might be some kind of link between these two horrible/un-curable diseases. Any thoughts? Answered by Carl Moffett 2 years ago.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response. I don't know the specific etology of psoriasis, but here is a blurb from my online text about other skin conditions associated with UC. The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment. These include hyper-sensitivity, photosensitivity, and urticarial rashes related to sulfasalazine and less commonly to mesalamines. Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration. Pyoderma gangrenosum may resolve with treatment of the underlying colitis. Most cases usually respond to intra-lesional glucocorticoid injections or topical therapy with cromolyn sodium, mesalamine, glucocorticoids, or tacrolimus. More severe cases may require systemic glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants, such as cyclo-sporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, and tacrolimus, dapsone, or infliximab. Other less common skin manifestations associated with UC include Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, and pyodermite végétante Hallopeau. The latter has a similar presentation to pyoderma gangrenosum but also involves the mouth Answered by Adela Kalin 2 years ago.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Anaprox with the following: ACE inhibitors such as the blood pressure medication captopril Antiseizure drugs such as phenytoin sodium Aspirin Beta blockers, including blood pressure drugs such as propranolol hydrochloride Blood thinners such as warfarin sodium Certain water pills (diuretics) such as furosemide Lithium Methotrexate Naproxen in other forms, such as naproxen Oral diabetes drugs such as glyburide Other pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen Probenecid Warfarin If you have more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day, check with your doctor before using painkillers. Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose. If you suspect an overdose of Anaprox, seek medical attention immediately. * Symptoms of Anaprox overdose may include: Drowsiness, heartburn, indigestion, nausea, vomiting Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot. And instinct should be enough for you to go to another doctor and get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion, until you feel like you're doing the right thing. Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts. That voice inside of you doesn't lie, and there is a mind-body connection that each person has inside of them. Get your research and second opinions together, and don't get that shot unless you feel like its the right thing to do for YOU. Answered by Arnold Heidemann 2 years ago.

I am by no means an expert in hcg levels, but it seems to me that your body just needs time. I personally would not accept the shot. Perhaps if the level did not go down after at least a few more months, I would. But, not after only 2 months. I would at least recommend getting a second opinion before doing anything you're not completely comfortable with. Answered by Katina Mark 2 years ago.

My father is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) is it harmful for the liver?
My father has a history of fatty liver and he is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) 3 times a week to help him exercise. Does taking Namproxen Sodium outweighs the benefits due to the fact of his liver condition? Asked by Yuri Nolle 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

No, any medication is filtered by the liver anyway. This is what the liver does. The benefits of exercise for his health and body are allot better then any problems his liver might have filtering it. A fatty liver isn't as bad as you may think. Although it's not as healthy as a normal liver, it's allot better than it being cirrhotic. The medication would be more helpful for your father than not taking it. Good luck and God Bless Answered by Charlie Cervantes 2 years ago.

Hi I'm leslie. I'm 15 years old and have microscopic polyarteritis nodosa, ADHD, OCD, post tramatic depression, anxiety, and many other problems. I take pillls 4x a day to function- methotrexate sodium, diclofenac sodium, amitryptaline, clonidine, strattera, fluxotine and fluvoxotine. The spelling probably isn't correct but yea. I know cold turkeying is bad but it's annoying and causes a feeling of dependency when you take so many pills. I haven't been eating or hungry since I stopped all about a week and a half ago. Also insomnia, throwing up, motionsickness, runny nose, and cold sweats. Help??? Answered by Brunilda Odonahue 2 years ago.

Anorexia is a mental illness that is developed when people continue to deny themselves food, even when they're hungry. If continued, this can become an addiction and is really hard to stop. It does not sound like stopping your pills is causing anorexia, but it's certainly making you very sick. This is very dangerous for both your physical and mental health. In the past, I have stopped taking my psychiatric medications without telling anyone, and I ended up in a medical hospital for four days, and then I was transferred to an adolescent unit in a psych hospital. I'm a girl only a year older than you, so I can understand how it feels to not want to take medications, especially if you don't want them to rule your life. They way you did it, however, is again very, very dangerous. Talk to your doctor about it, and maybe you can try getting off of some of them. It sounds like you actually do need some of your medications, and that's something you will have to learn to accept. You might feel that they make you weak, but actually, not taking them makes you weak because you're not taking care of yourself. When you have a fever you take medicine right? Or a headache? Or (if you have asthma) you take your inhaler when you need it don't you? The list can go on, and this is the same thing. Answered by Leila Rocker 2 years ago.

You should start taking your pills again. For sure. I was once on Lexapro and started trying to wean off it and then I totally blacked out for days! My mom had to do everything for me! I had no control over my actions or thoughts! My mom thought I was going to be mentally disabled for life! Just go to your doctor, or actually go to a NEW doctor! (why would they put you on ALL of that medicine at once? It just doesn't make sense to me) You need to let a doctor know everything you are on and how it is making you feel. I hope you can find a way to get better and not have to depend on all that medicine. Answered by Brady Balangatan 2 years ago.

If you stop taking pills that you need just cold turkey, then your body is going to react to not having them anymore. You're detoxing right now. Never quit drugs/pills cold turkey. And for the love of G-d, eat something. But nothing to rich, that would be a shock to your system. Try chicken soup. -Tila Answered by Giuseppina Aronson 2 years ago.

you should never go off prescribed medications cold turkey. FIRST, you should discuss this with your doctor. if he/she agrees then you should wane of slowly, lowering the dose of the pills day by day till your body can handle and control itself without the pills. your body is reacting badly toward the missing of pills. that's what happens when alcoholics and drug addicts get off their stuff, their body reacts badly. you should always do this under the eye of a doctor. tell your doctor, please Answered by Tara Kounkel 2 years ago.

Do you suffer from, or is the onset of arthritis starting to make it's presence known?
Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, I can't go a night without waking up from the pain in my shoulders. Is there any medication that can help? Asked by Johnette Boughner 2 years ago.

DMARDS -- Disease modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs are many -- They are best used at the early stages of RA, but can help throughout. Commonly used oral DMARDs: Antimalarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or chloroquine (Aralen) Leflunomide (Arava) Methotrexate such as Rheumatrex Sulfasalazine such as Azulfidine Less commonly used oral DMARDs: Azathioprine such as Imuran Cyclophosphamide such as Cytoxan or Neosar Cyclosporine such as Neoral or Sandimmune Gold salts such as Ridaura or Aurolate Minocycline such as Dynacin or Minocin Penicillamine such as Cuprimine or Depen Biological DMARDs: Abatacept (Orencia) Adalimumab (Humira) Anakinra (Kineret) Etanercept (Enbrel) Infliximab (Remicade) Rituximab (Rituxan) Also NSAIDS -- None steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Naproxen Sodium and so on can help with inflammation and pain. Immunosuppressant drugs can help immensely but have to be used with care due to side effects and the effects of a suppressed immune system -- Corticosteroids like prednisone are commonly used. Finally stronger opioid analgesics (painkillers) are prescribed for pain that cannot be controlled through other means -- Darvocet, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine products and so on would fall into this category. Usually a combination of all treatments with lifestyle modification is the best combination treatment. A rheumatologist would be your best bet for the most informed doctor to manage your RA.

Taking Ciprofloxacin.?
Im taking Cipro 500mg and it says not to take antacids, iron or vitamins, Do you think its okay to take nght time sleep aid with this medication? Asked by Eula Bromberg 2 years ago.

as always consult your pharmacist or the prescribing medical doctor for questions regarding your medications --i would not to be on the safe side read this from web md Some products that may interact with this drug include: live bacterial vaccines (e.g., typhoid, BCG), "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone, hydrocortisone), cyclosporine, drugs removed from your body by certain liver enzymes (such as clozapine, duloxetine, phenytoin, ropinirole, tacrine), drugs for diabetes (e.g., glyburide, insulin), methotrexate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen), probenecid, sevelamer, strontium, tizanidine, theophylline, urinary alkalinizers (e.g., potassium/sodium citrate). Many drugs besides ciprofloxacin may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, dofetilide, quinidine, procainamide, sotalol, certain macrolide antibiotics (e.g., erythromycin, clarithromycin), and certain antipsychotic medications (e.g., pimozide, thioridazine, ziprasidone), among others. Also report the use of drugs that might increase seizure risk when combined with this medication such as isoniazid (INH), phenothiazines (e.g., chlorpromazine), or tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline), among others. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas), eating large amounts of chocolate, or taking over-the-counter products that contain caffeine to keep you awake and alert. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Although most antibiotics probably do not affect hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring, some antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness. This could cause pregnancy.

I never had any health problems before and just about two years ago I both the psoriasis and colitis seemed to have arrived together. I have been seeing a dermatologist for a while and he said psoriasis without hesitation. There is not a part on my body that is uneffected by the psoriasis. Just resently I had all the great colon tests (at 20 years old) and told i have severe ulcerative colitis. I seem to be the only person thinking there might be some kind of link between these two horrible/un-curable diseases. Any thoughts? Answered by Ramiro Aloia 2 years ago.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response. I don't know the specific etology of psoriasis, but here is a blurb from my online text about other skin conditions associated with UC. The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment. These include hyper-sensitivity, photosensitivity, and urticarial rashes related to sulfasalazine and less commonly to mesalamines. Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration. Pyoderma gangrenosum may resolve with treatment of the underlying colitis. Most cases usually respond to intra-lesional glucocorticoid injections or topical therapy with cromolyn sodium, mesalamine, glucocorticoids, or tacrolimus. More severe cases may require systemic glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants, such as cyclo-sporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, and tacrolimus, dapsone, or infliximab. Other less common skin manifestations associated with UC include Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, and pyodermite végétante Hallopeau. The latter has a similar presentation to pyoderma gangrenosum but also involves the mouth Answered by Bettye Mckibbens 2 years ago.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Anaprox with the following: ACE inhibitors such as the blood pressure medication captopril Antiseizure drugs such as phenytoin sodium Aspirin Beta blockers, including blood pressure drugs such as propranolol hydrochloride Blood thinners such as warfarin sodium Certain water pills (diuretics) such as furosemide Lithium Methotrexate Naproxen in other forms, such as naproxen Oral diabetes drugs such as glyburide Other pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen Probenecid Warfarin If you have more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day, check with your doctor before using painkillers. Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose. If you suspect an overdose of Anaprox, seek medical attention immediately. * Symptoms of Anaprox overdose may include: Drowsiness, heartburn, indigestion, nausea, vomiting Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot. And instinct should be enough for you to go to another doctor and get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion, until you feel like you're doing the right thing. Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts. That voice inside of you doesn't lie, and there is a mind-body connection that each person has inside of them. Get your research and second opinions together, and don't get that shot unless you feel like its the right thing to do for YOU. Answered by Vicenta Waite 2 years ago.

I am by no means an expert in hcg levels, but it seems to me that your body just needs time. I personally would not accept the shot. Perhaps if the level did not go down after at least a few more months, I would. But, not after only 2 months. I would at least recommend getting a second opinion before doing anything you're not completely comfortable with. Answered by Marisol Stenseth 2 years ago.

My father is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) is it harmful for the liver?
My father has a history of fatty liver and he is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) 3 times a week to help him exercise. Does taking Namproxen Sodium outweighs the benefits due to the fact of his liver condition? Asked by Stacie Bathurst 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

No, any medication is filtered by the liver anyway. This is what the liver does. The benefits of exercise for his health and body are allot better then any problems his liver might have filtering it. A fatty liver isn't as bad as you may think. Although it's not as healthy as a normal liver, it's allot better than it being cirrhotic. The medication would be more helpful for your father than not taking it. Good luck and God Bless Answered by Millicent Hotter 2 years ago.

Hi I'm leslie. I'm 15 years old and have microscopic polyarteritis nodosa, ADHD, OCD, post tramatic depression, anxiety, and many other problems. I take pillls 4x a day to function- methotrexate sodium, diclofenac sodium, amitryptaline, clonidine, strattera, fluxotine and fluvoxotine. The spelling probably isn't correct but yea. I know cold turkeying is bad but it's annoying and causes a feeling of dependency when you take so many pills. I haven't been eating or hungry since I stopped all about a week and a half ago. Also insomnia, throwing up, motionsickness, runny nose, and cold sweats. Help??? Answered by Michal Klitz 2 years ago.

Anorexia is a mental illness that is developed when people continue to deny themselves food, even when they're hungry. If continued, this can become an addiction and is really hard to stop. It does not sound like stopping your pills is causing anorexia, but it's certainly making you very sick. This is very dangerous for both your physical and mental health. In the past, I have stopped taking my psychiatric medications without telling anyone, and I ended up in a medical hospital for four days, and then I was transferred to an adolescent unit in a psych hospital. I'm a girl only a year older than you, so I can understand how it feels to not want to take medications, especially if you don't want them to rule your life. They way you did it, however, is again very, very dangerous. Talk to your doctor about it, and maybe you can try getting off of some of them. It sounds like you actually do need some of your medications, and that's something you will have to learn to accept. You might feel that they make you weak, but actually, not taking them makes you weak because you're not taking care of yourself. When you have a fever you take medicine right? Or a headache? Or (if you have asthma) you take your inhaler when you need it don't you? The list can go on, and this is the same thing. Answered by Rocky Strayhorn 2 years ago.

You should start taking your pills again. For sure. I was once on Lexapro and started trying to wean off it and then I totally blacked out for days! My mom had to do everything for me! I had no control over my actions or thoughts! My mom thought I was going to be mentally disabled for life! Just go to your doctor, or actually go to a NEW doctor! (why would they put you on ALL of that medicine at once? It just doesn't make sense to me) You need to let a doctor know everything you are on and how it is making you feel. I hope you can find a way to get better and not have to depend on all that medicine. Answered by Pierre Nellis 2 years ago.

If you stop taking pills that you need just cold turkey, then your body is going to react to not having them anymore. You're detoxing right now. Never quit drugs/pills cold turkey. And for the love of G-d, eat something. But nothing to rich, that would be a shock to your system. Try chicken soup. -Tila Answered by Rickey Paet 2 years ago.

you should never go off prescribed medications cold turkey. FIRST, you should discuss this with your doctor. if he/she agrees then you should wane of slowly, lowering the dose of the pills day by day till your body can handle and control itself without the pills. your body is reacting badly toward the missing of pills. that's what happens when alcoholics and drug addicts get off their stuff, their body reacts badly. you should always do this under the eye of a doctor. tell your doctor, please Answered by Elliott Kelsey 2 years ago.

Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, I can't go a night without waking up from the pain in my shoulders. Is there any medication that can help? Asked by Donette Goodrow 2 years ago.

DMARDS -- Disease modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs are many -- They are best used at the early stages of RA, but can help throughout. Commonly used oral DMARDs: Antimalarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or chloroquine (Aralen) Leflunomide (Arava) Methotrexate such as Rheumatrex Sulfasalazine such as Azulfidine Less commonly used oral DMARDs: Azathioprine such as Imuran Cyclophosphamide such as Cytoxan or Neosar Cyclosporine such as Neoral or Sandimmune Gold salts such as Ridaura or Aurolate Minocycline such as Dynacin or Minocin Penicillamine such as Cuprimine or Depen Biological DMARDs: Abatacept (Orencia) Adalimumab (Humira) Anakinra (Kineret) Etanercept (Enbrel) Infliximab (Remicade) Rituximab (Rituxan) Also NSAIDS -- None steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Naproxen Sodium and so on can help with inflammation and pain. Immunosuppressant drugs can help immensely but have to be used with care due to side effects and the effects of a suppressed immune system -- Corticosteroids like prednisone are commonly used. Finally stronger opioid analgesics (painkillers) are prescribed for pain that cannot be controlled through other means -- Darvocet, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine products and so on would fall into this category. Usually a combination of all treatments with lifestyle modification is the best combination treatment. A rheumatologist would be your best bet for the most informed doctor to manage your RA.

Taking Ciprofloxacin.?
Im taking Cipro 500mg and it says not to take antacids, iron or vitamins, Do you think its okay to take nght time sleep aid with this medication? Asked by Marvel Pavolini 2 years ago.

as always consult your pharmacist or the prescribing medical doctor for questions regarding your medications --i would not to be on the safe side read this from web md Some products that may interact with this drug include: live bacterial vaccines (e.g., typhoid, BCG), "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone, hydrocortisone), cyclosporine, drugs removed from your body by certain liver enzymes (such as clozapine, duloxetine, phenytoin, ropinirole, tacrine), drugs for diabetes (e.g., glyburide, insulin), methotrexate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen), probenecid, sevelamer, strontium, tizanidine, theophylline, urinary alkalinizers (e.g., potassium/sodium citrate). Many drugs besides ciprofloxacin may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, dofetilide, quinidine, procainamide, sotalol, certain macrolide antibiotics (e.g., erythromycin, clarithromycin), and certain antipsychotic medications (e.g., pimozide, thioridazine, ziprasidone), among others. Also report the use of drugs that might increase seizure risk when combined with this medication such as isoniazid (INH), phenothiazines (e.g., chlorpromazine), or tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline), among others. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas), eating large amounts of chocolate, or taking over-the-counter products that contain caffeine to keep you awake and alert. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Although most antibiotics probably do not affect hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring, some antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness. This could cause pregnancy.

I never had any health problems before and just about two years ago I both the psoriasis and colitis seemed to have arrived together. I have been seeing a dermatologist for a while and he said psoriasis without hesitation. There is not a part on my body that is uneffected by the psoriasis. Just resently I had all the great colon tests (at 20 years old) and told i have severe ulcerative colitis. I seem to be the only person thinking there might be some kind of link between these two horrible/un-curable diseases. Any thoughts? Answered by Carin Wesson 2 years ago.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response. I don't know the specific etology of psoriasis, but here is a blurb from my online text about other skin conditions associated with UC. The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment. These include hyper-sensitivity, photosensitivity, and urticarial rashes related to sulfasalazine and less commonly to mesalamines. Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration. Pyoderma gangrenosum may resolve with treatment of the underlying colitis. Most cases usually respond to intra-lesional glucocorticoid injections or topical therapy with cromolyn sodium, mesalamine, glucocorticoids, or tacrolimus. More severe cases may require systemic glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants, such as cyclo-sporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, and tacrolimus, dapsone, or infliximab. Other less common skin manifestations associated with UC include Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, and pyodermite végétante Hallopeau. The latter has a similar presentation to pyoderma gangrenosum but also involves the mouth Answered by Pablo Coak 2 years ago.

Anaprox and Naprelan are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to relieve mild to moderate pain and menstrual cramps. They are also prescribed for relief of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (the most common form of arthritis), and for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis), tendinitis, bursitis, acute gout, and other conditions. Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Anaprox. * Side effects of Anaprox may include: Abdominal pain, constipation, difficult or labored breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, heartburn, nausea, red or purple pinpoint spots on the skin, rash-like symptoms, ringing in the ears, water retention Naprelan shares some of the above side effects, but also has some of its own: * Side effects of Naprelan may include: Back pain, flu symptoms, infection, nasal inflammation, sinus inflammation, sore throat, urinary infection If Anaprox is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Anaprox with the following: ACE inhibitors such as the blood pressure medication captopril Antiseizure drugs such as phenytoin sodium Aspirin Beta blockers, including blood pressure drugs such as propranolol hydrochloride Blood thinners such as warfarin sodium Certain water pills (diuretics) such as furosemide Lithium Methotrexate Naproxen in other forms, such as naproxen Oral diabetes drugs such as glyburide Other pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen Probenecid Warfarin If you have more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day, check with your doctor before using painkillers. Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose. If you suspect an overdose of Anaprox, seek medical attention immediately. * Symptoms of Anaprox overdose may include: Drowsiness, heartburn, indigestion, nausea, vomiting Any medication taken in excess can cause symptoms of overdose.

Doctors aren't perfect and they don't always know what's best. It sounds like instinctually, you aren't comfortable with the idea of getting this shot. And instinct should be enough for you to go to another doctor and get a second (or third, or fourth) opinion, until you feel like you're doing the right thing. Don't ever feel pressured to say yes to a medical procedure just because one doctor recommended it. I'm not saying that you shouldn't trust your doctor, but never ignore your instincts. That voice inside of you doesn't lie, and there is a mind-body connection that each person has inside of them. Get your research and second opinions together, and don't get that shot unless you feel like its the right thing to do for YOU. Answered by Rebecca Lain 2 years ago.

I am by no means an expert in hcg levels, but it seems to me that your body just needs time. I personally would not accept the shot. Perhaps if the level did not go down after at least a few more months, I would. But, not after only 2 months. I would at least recommend getting a second opinion before doing anything you're not completely comfortable with. Answered by William Tix 2 years ago.

My father is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) is it harmful for the liver?
My father has a history of fatty liver and he is taking Naproxen Sodium (Skelan) 3 times a week to help him exercise. Does taking Namproxen Sodium outweighs the benefits due to the fact of his liver condition? Asked by Megan Senavanh 2 years ago.

All I can say is Naproxen is used for all forms of arthritis, inflammatory disorders, gout, back pain, ankylosing spondylitis, bone pain, period pain, migraine and general pain relief. It should be used with caution in psychiatrically disturbed patients, epilepsy, severe infection, heart failure and kidney disease. And do not take if suffering from peptic ulcer at present or in recent past, If your due for surgery (including dental surgery), Suffering from bleeding disorders or anaemia, Or suffering from proctitis.(suppository only). Common side effects are stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, constipation, heart burn, nausea, headache, dizziness. Unusual side effects are blurred vision, stomach ulcer, ringing noise in ears, retention of fluid, swelling of tissue, drowsiness, itch rash, shortness of breath. Severe but rare effects (stop medication, consult a doctor): Vomit blood, pass blood in faeces, other unusual bleeding, asthma induced by medication. It also has interactions with other drugs and must not be used with anticoagulants (eg. warfarin), probenecid, diuretics, lithium, methotrexate, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors.

No, any medication is filtered by the liver anyway. This is what the liver does. The benefits of exercise for his health and body are allot better then any problems his liver might have filtering it. A fatty liver isn't as bad as you may think. Although it's not as healthy as a normal liver, it's allot better than it being cirrhotic. The medication would be more helpful for your father than not taking it. Good luck and God Bless Answered by Debora Sirianni 2 years ago.

Asked by Chet Ladonne 2 years ago.

Hi I'm leslie. I'm 15 years old and have microscopic polyarteritis nodosa, ADHD, OCD, post tramatic depression, anxiety, and many other problems. I take pillls 4x a day to function- methotrexate sodium, diclofenac sodium, amitryptaline, clonidine, strattera, fluxotine and fluvoxotine. The spelling probably isn't correct but yea. I know cold turkeying is bad but it's annoying and causes a feeling of dependency when you take so many pills. I haven't been eating or hungry since I stopped all about a week and a half ago. Also insomnia, throwing up, motionsickness, runny nose, and cold sweats. Help??? Answered by Ronald Napper 2 years ago.

my doctor in my town said i was anorexic..... i thought she was wrong so thank you. i live in kremmling, CO where there are only 1500 people in my town. the hospital here isnt qualified to say anything or do anything for me. i am only allowed to go to Denver childrens hospital to Dr Hollister because he is a oncologist/rhemutologist specialist. but i went to the ER after i had fainted. today i have eaten 1/2 a hamburger and 4 otter pops, most ive eaten all week. i started my pills again when i got home. thank you all for your help :) Answered by Carlo Nealen 2 years ago.

Anorexia is a mental illness that is developed when people continue to deny themselves food, even when they're hungry. If continued, this can become an addiction and is really hard to stop. It does not sound like stopping your pills is causing anorexia, but it's certainly making you very sick. This is very dangerous for both your physical and mental health. In the past, I have stopped taking my psychiatric medications without telling anyone, and I ended up in a medical hospital for four days, and then I was transferred to an adolescent unit in a psych hospital. I'm a girl only a year older than you, so I can understand how it feels to not want to take medications, especially if you don't want them to rule your life. They way you did it, however, is again very, very dangerous. Talk to your doctor about it, and maybe you can try getting off of some of them. It sounds like you actually do need some of your medications, and that's something you will have to learn to accept. You might feel that they make you weak, but actually, not taking them makes you weak because you're not taking care of yourself. When you have a fever you take medicine right? Or a headache? Or (if you have asthma) you take your inhaler when you need it don't you? The list can go on, and this is the same thing. Answered by Betty Andren 2 years ago.

You should start taking your pills again. For sure. I was once on Lexapro and started trying to wean off it and then I totally blacked out for days! My mom had to do everything for me! I had no control over my actions or thoughts! My mom thought I was going to be mentally disabled for life! Just go to your doctor, or actually go to a NEW doctor! (why would they put you on ALL of that medicine at once? It just doesn't make sense to me) You need to let a doctor know everything you are on and how it is making you feel. I hope you can find a way to get better and not have to depend on all that medicine. Answered by Tobi Pacho 2 years ago.

If you stop taking pills that you need just cold turkey, then your body is going to react to not having them anymore. You're detoxing right now. Never quit drugs/pills cold turkey. And for the love of G-d, eat something. But nothing to rich, that would be a shock to your system. Try chicken soup. -Tila Answered by Sonny Uva 2 years ago.

you should never go off prescribed medications cold turkey. FIRST, you should discuss this with your doctor. if he/she agrees then you should wane of slowly, lowering the dose of the pills day by day till your body can handle and control itself without the pills. your body is reacting badly toward the missing of pills. that's what happens when alcoholics and drug addicts get off their stuff, their body reacts badly. you should always do this under the eye of a doctor. tell your doctor, please Answered by Reanna Uchimura 2 years ago.

Do you suffer from, or is the onset of arthritis starting to make it's presence known?
Rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family, I can't go a night without waking up from the pain in my shoulders. Is there any medication that can help? Asked by Teri Fritchey 2 years ago.

DMARDS -- Disease modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs are many -- They are best used at the early stages of RA, but can help throughout. Commonly used oral DMARDs: Antimalarial medications such as hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or chloroquine (Aralen) Leflunomide (Arava) Methotrexate such as Rheumatrex Sulfasalazine such as Azulfidine Less commonly used oral DMARDs: Azathioprine such as Imuran Cyclophosphamide such as Cytoxan or Neosar Cyclosporine such as Neoral or Sandimmune Gold salts such as Ridaura or Aurolate Minocycline such as Dynacin or Minocin Penicillamine such as Cuprimine or Depen Biological DMARDs: Abatacept (Orencia) Adalimumab (Humira) Anakinra (Kineret) Etanercept (Enbrel) Infliximab (Remicade) Rituximab (Rituxan) Also NSAIDS -- None steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Naproxen Sodium and so on can help with inflammation and pain. Immunosuppressant drugs can help immensely but have to be used with care due to side effects and the effects of a suppressed immune system -- Corticosteroids like prednisone are commonly used. Finally stronger opioid analgesics (painkillers) are prescribed for pain that cannot be controlled through other means -- Darvocet, Vicodin, Lortab, Codeine products and so on would fall into this category. Usually a combination of all treatments with lifestyle modification is the best combination treatment. A rheumatologist would be your best bet for the most informed doctor to manage your RA.

Taking Ciprofloxacin.?
Im taking Cipro 500mg and it says not to take antacids, iron or vitamins, Do you think its okay to take nght time sleep aid with this medication? Asked by Hugo Cyler 2 years ago.

as always consult your pharmacist or the prescribing medical doctor for questions regarding your medications --i would not to be on the safe side read this from web md Some products that may interact with this drug include: live bacterial vaccines (e.g., typhoid, BCG), "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone, hydrocortisone), cyclosporine, drugs removed from your body by certain liver enzymes (such as clozapine, duloxetine, phenytoin, ropinirole, tacrine), drugs for diabetes (e.g., glyburide, insulin), methotrexate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen), probenecid, sevelamer, strontium, tizanidine, theophylline, urinary alkalinizers (e.g., potassium/sodium citrate). Many drugs besides ciprofloxacin may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, dofetilide, quinidine, procainamide, sotalol, certain macrolide antibiotics (e.g., erythromycin, clarithromycin), and certain antipsychotic medications (e.g., pimozide, thioridazine, ziprasidone), among others. Also report the use of drugs that might increase seizure risk when combined with this medication such as isoniazid (INH), phenothiazines (e.g., chlorpromazine), or tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline), among others. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details. Avoid drinking large amounts of beverages containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas), eating large amounts of chocolate, or taking over-the-counter products that contain caffeine to keep you awake and alert. This drug may increase and/or prolong the effects of caffeine. Although most antibiotics probably do not affect hormonal birth control such as pills, patch, or ring, some antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness. This could cause pregnancy. Examples include rifamycins such as rifampin or rifabutin. Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if you should use additional reliable birth control methods while using this antibiotic.

I never had any health problems before and just about two years ago I both the psoriasis and colitis seemed to have arrived together. I have been seeing a dermatologist for a while and he said psoriasis without hesitation. There is not a part on my body that is uneffected by the psoriasis. Just resently I had all the great colon tests (at 20 years old) and told i have severe ulcerative colitis. I seem to be the only person thinking there might be some kind of link between these two horrible/un-curable diseases. Any thoughts? Answered by Thomas Wilhelm 2 years ago.

Yes, there is a connection and is part of the extraintestinal complications of ulcerative colitis. There are several dermatological manifestations that can result from the drugs used to treat the condition or from the body's immune response. I don't know the specific etology of psoriasis, but here is a blurb from my online text about other skin conditions associated with UC. The most common skin manifestations of UC are complications of drug treatment. These include hyper-sensitivity, photosensitivity, and urticarial rashes related to sulfasalazine and less commonly to mesalamines. Patients receiving glucocorticoids often develop acne, which can be distressing cosmetically. Other common dermatologic manifestations associated with UC are erythema nodosum and pyoderma gangrenosum. Erythema nodosum occurs in 2% to 4% of patients with UC. Its activity typically parallels the activity of the underlying bowel disease. Erythema nodosum also may occur as a drug reaction to the sulfapyridine component of sulfasalazine. It classically presents as single or multiple tender, raised, erythematous nodules on the extensor surfaces of the lower extremities. If possible, the diagnosis should be made clinically without biopsy, because biopsy is associated with increased tendency to scar formation. Erythema nodosum usually responds to treatment of the UC. Severe or refractory cases may require systemic glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive therapy. Pyoderma gangrenosum is less frequent than erythema nodosum and occurs in 1% to 2% of patients. It is usually related to the activity of colitis but may present or persist despite inactive bowel disease. Lesions may be single or multiple and usually occur on the trunk or extremities but may develop on the face, breast, or sites of trauma, including stoma and intravenous sites.The classic lesion begins as erythematous pustules or nodules that break down, ulcerate, and coalesce into a larger, tender, burrowing ulcer with irregular, violaceous edges. Although the appearance can be dramatic, the ulcers are sterile. Histopathologically, pyoderma has the features of a sterile abscess with a marked neutrophilic infiltration. Pyoderma gangrenosum may resolve with treatment of the underlying colitis. Most cases usually respond to intra-lesional glucocorticoid injections or topical therapy with cromolyn sodium, mesalamine, glucocorticoids, or tacrolimus. More severe cases may require systemic glucocorticoids, immunosuppressants, such as cyclo-sporine, azathioprine, methotrexate, and tacrolimus, dapsone, or infliximab. Other less common skin manifestations associated with UC include Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, and pyodermite végétante Hallopeau. The latter has a similar presentation to pyoderma gangrenosum but also involves the mouth Answered by Palma Moss 2 years ago.
