This you can do yourself. Go to www.ask.com. Do a search for the meds you want. Tell your doctor of your financial difficulties and they should be able to give you some free samples to help you along as long as they have them in stock. That's what they are there for. People don't know this. More often than not they throw out lots of samples that expire before they can be given out. Good Luck ! Answered by Oscar Costanzo 2 years ago.

For the past few months I have been getting diarrhea in the morning after waking up, or sever stomach pain. I am a guy, so I am obviously not pregnant. It doesn't matter if I sleep at night or nap during the day: when I wake up, it is still the same. Also, what I eat before I fall asleep doesn't affect it, because I have made a dietary log, and found no similarities in my diet. In fact, even when I don't eat, I still get it when I wake up. It probably happens 4-5 times a week, and like I said, has been happening for about 6 months now. Answered by Yadira Bergeaux 2 years ago.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a chronic non-inflammatory disease also called spastic colon or irritable colon. There are two types. One is characterized by abdominal pain alternating with constipation and diarrhea. The other type is painless and is characterized by constant or intermittent diarrhea. Causes: are unknown, but are usually hereditary and worsened by emotional stress, and by certain foods such as chocolate, milk products, alcohol, and caffeine. Symptoms: abdominal pain alternating between diarrhea and constipation, crampy gassiness and bloating. The urge to have a bowel movement, but the inability to do so. Treatment: Proper diet. High fiber diet. Small frequent meals. Fiber supplements. Medicines which decrease action of colon such as anticholinergic agents such as Librax, Bentyl, Levsyn and Pamine has been widely used. Newer agents such as Tegaserod appear promising in constipation predominant IBS. Tranquilizers or antidepressants may be prescribed. Crohn’s Disease: Crohn’s Disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which affects all the layers of the lining of the digestive tract. This can occur anywhere from the mouth to the anus. However, the ileum is the most common site. It is also called regional enteritis or ileitis. It can be hereditary in nature. The cause is unknown. Hereditarily predisposed individuals may get first onset of Crohns disease after an infectious gastroenteritis. Symptoms: abdominal pain, bloating after meals, diarrhea, constipation, weight loss, failure to thrive in kids. Bloody diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fever and chills, loss of appetite and weight loss may also be present. Crohns disease can also present as appendicitis, abscess or fistula formation. Complications: intestinal blockage from the swelling or inflammation can occur as well as the build up of scar tissue. “Tunnels” or fistulas in surrounding tissue such as toward the bladder, vagina, or skin may occur and need surgical intervention. Swelling also interferes with the necessary absorption of nutrients therefore, malnutrition can occur. Crohn’s disease has also been associated with arthritis, kidney, and gallstones, and liver disease. Treatment: Anti-inflammatory medication is generally prescribed, as well as corticosteroids. Antibiotics may also be needed. Medications can also be given to suppress the immune system. High fiber foods and foods high in fat may aggravate symptoms. Nutritional supplements high in calories are sometimes required. Antidiarrheals may help. Remicade, a drug given intravenously, has been proven effective in some cases. Surgery may be necessary if complications arise. Ulcerative Colitis: Ulcerative Colitis is another type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The cause is unknown, however it can be hereditary. This type of IBD affects only the superficial or innermost layer of the lining of the colon, usually in the rectum and lower colon. Ulcers form in places where inflammation has killed cells lining the colon. Ulcers bleed and produce pus and mucus. Symptoms: Frequent watery stools containing mucus and pus, and blood. Abdominal pain and/or tenderness can be present. Occasionally fever is present. The urgency to have a bowel movement is present. Fatigue and joint pain are common complaints. Most generally, this disease affects people between the ages of 15-40. Complications: In a worse case scenario hemorrhage and perforation of the bowel could occur which would require immediate surgery. Sometimes diarrhea can become severe enough to cause dehydration and require hospitalization for a special diet and fluids to be given intravenously. Extra intestinal complications of ulcerative colitis can be present such as arthritis, inflammation of sclera (outer layer of eye ball), hepatitis and scarring of the bile ducts (Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis) Treatment: Anti-inflammatory drugs such as asacol, rowasa, cortenema, colazal, pentasa as well as steroids are prescribed. Immune system suppressing medication may also be prescribed. Antibiotics may be necessary. Avoidance of spicy foods and foods containing lactose (dairy products) proves helpful. Surgery is needed when complications arise. Hepatitis: Hepatitis is the inflammation or swelling of the liver which produces tenderness, and sometimes, permanent damage to the liver. Causes: Alcohol abuse, certain drugs, and viral infections are the most common causes of hepatitis. If the inflammation lasts for more than 6 months, it is considered chronic hepatitis. There are at least 5 known types of viruses which can cause hepatitis. 1. Hepatitis A is also called infectious hepatitis. It is spread by food and water that has been contaminated with feces. This type is usually not life-threatening. But can be serious in elderly, pregnant patients and the immune suppressed. 2. Hepatitis B is also called “serum” hepatitis. It can be spread from mother to child at birth, by sexual contact, contaminated needles and contaminated blood transfusions. This can lead to scarring or Cirrhosis of the liver. Lately, medicines such as interferon and other antiviral agents are being used in some cases. 3. Hepatitis C is a viral infection that is the most common form of hepatitis. It can be spread by needles—such as those used in IV drug use, or for giving tattoos, or body piercings. Infection can also happen by sharing objects such as straws during nasal use of cocaine. The virus can possibly be transmitted sexually but this mode of transmission is rare. This can also cause scarring of the liver or Cirrhosis. This virus causes chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis, and is the leading cause of liver transplant in the USA. 4. Hepatitis D can only infect people who carry the Hepatitis B virus (carriers do no exhibit the symptoms but can pass on the infection). This virus can cause disease only in the presence of Hepatitis B virus and is spread the same way as Hepatitis B. 5. Hepatitis E is similar to Hepatitis A but is most commonly found in people who live in the Indian Ocean area. It is not life-threatening. Symptoms: Flu-like symptoms are typical. Fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, and muscle and joint aches are typical. Jaundice or the yellowing of the skin or the whites of the eyes is sometimes present. Jaundice also makes the skin dry and itchy. Some patients have no symptoms at all. Pancreatic Disorders: The pancreas is an organ behind the stomach that makes enzymes that aid in the digestion of food. Bile leaving the gallbladder and enzymes leaving the pancreas share the same “opening” to flow through into the duodenum. A gallstone can block this opening and fluids/bile can back up in the pancreas causing pancreatitis. Acute Pancreatitis is when the pancreas suddenly becomes irritated or inflamed. The common cause of this could be a gallstone or from drinking alcohol. Drugs such as Imuran, 6 Mercaptopurine, many drugs used in AIDS can cause pancreatitis. The symptoms are severe pain, nausea, vomiting, swollen or tender abdomen, fever, fast pulse, and shallow fast breathing. Treatment includes fluids and nutrition given intravenously in the hospital. You would be discharged home on a low fat diet and to consume no alcoholic beverages. If the cause is gallstones, they would be treated surgically. Chronic Pancreatitis is most often due to continued or prolonged use of alcohol. The symptoms are diarrhea, weight loss, and abdominal pain or tenderness. Complications include diabetes, malnutrition, and pancreatic cancer. Treatment includes medications to help the pancreas work and complete avoidance of any type of alcohol or offending drugs. Analgesic medicines and pancreatic enzymes are also used. Diverticulosis/Diverticulitis: Diverticulosis is an out-pouching in the lining of the colon. If you think of the lining of the colon as a road, a diverticuli would be a pothole. This usually has no symptoms. 50% of people age 50-80 have diverticuli. Nearly 100% of people over 80 have diverticuli. Diverticulitis is a condition where diverticuli become inflamed or infected by food or waste matter trapped in the pouch. Only 10-25% of people with diverticuli ever develop diverticulitis. Symptoms of diverticulitis are abdominal pain and fever which require antibiotics and low residue diet to prevent perforation or an abcess from forming. Causes: It is believed that areas of the colon wall muscle become weak and the out pouchings occur. It is also associated with lack of exercise, a diet low in fiber, ignoring the urge to have a bowel movement then straining later causes increased pressure in the colon. Symptoms: Diverticulosis—constipation, mild pain, cramping, diarrhea, and bloating. Diverticulitis—abdominal pain, cramping usually left sided, rectal bleed, nausea, vomiting, fever, and constipation. Treatment: A diet high in fiber and getting enough fluids daily can help with diverticulosis. For diverticulitis, antibiotics for the infection and a low fiber diet while the healing takes place, then eventually a high fiber diet when inflammation is controlled. Serious complications may include perforation, tear, blockage or bleeding at the site of infection. Severe attacks may even warrant surgical intervention. Diarrhea: Diarrhea is present when there are loose stools more than 3 times a day. Diarrhea usually goes away on its own, however if prolonged it can cause dehydration or fluid loss. Causes: A reason for temporary diarrhea would be a bacterial or viral infection. If diarrhea persists for more than 3 weeks it is considered a chronic problem which could be caused by intestinal disease or surreptitious use of laxatives, Irritable Bowel Disease, Celiac Disease, food intolerance such as dairy products, parasites such as Giardia found in well water or streams, a reaction to medication like antibiotics and antacids, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or after gallbladder surgery. Symptoms: Crampy abdominal pain, bloating, and nausea. Treatment: Antidiarrheal medications, fluid replacement, avoidance of milk products and greasy foods. Very high fiber, or very sweet foods may aggrevate it. Eat a bland diet such as rice, potatoes, toast, bananas, carrots, and chicken. Immediate medical attention is needed if pain becomes severe, fever is greater than 102 degrees or there is blood present in the bowel movements. If the diarrhea has lasted longer than 3 days or if signs of dehydration are present such as thirst, decrease in the amount of urine, or urine that is dark in color, skin is dry, you are fatigued, or lightheaded you need to seek medical attention. Cirrhosis: Cirrhosis: When the liver has become permanently scarred or injured, the condition is called Cirrhosis. Scarring chokes the flow of blood in the liver raising pressure of blood vessels in esophagus, stomach and intestines. Causes: In the United States, alcohol is the number one cause of cirrhosis. It can also be caused by Viral Hepatitis, hereditary diseases such as cystic fibrosis, alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency, hemachromatosis, Wilson’s Disease, blockage of the bile ducts, primary biliary cirrhosis. Fatty liver caused by diabetes, high blood cholesterol and obesity is increasingly being identified as cause of cirrhosis. Symptoms: Include fatigue, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, swelling in the legs, swelling in the abdomen, easy bruising or easy bleeding. In late stage cirrhosis, jaundice or yellowing of the skin or the whites of the eyes is present. Also skin is itchy and gallstone formation can occur. Forgetfulness, trouble concentrating, dull mental function or coma can also appear in late stages resulting from encephalopathy. Esophageal varices or varicose veins may occur due to increased pressure in the abdomen on the portal vein, which could rupture and cause life-threatening hemorrhage. Treatment: If drinking alcohol—STOP. If caused by hepatitis it should be treated. Decrease salt intake. Diuretics can be used to get rid of excess fluid. Lactulose helps to decrease encephalopathy. Medications can be prescribed to relieve itching. Medications to lower blood pressure such as inderal can reduce chance of varices to rupture. Gallstones: Bile is a liquid produced by the liver containing water, cholesterol, fat, bile salts, and bilirubin used to aid in digestion. It is stored in the gallbladder. When needed for digestion, the gallbladder contracts and pushes the bile into a tube called a duct that carries it to the small intestine. If the bile contains too much cholesterol, salts, or bilirubin it can harden and turn into stones. There are 2 kinds of stones, cholesterol and bilirubin. They can range in size from a grain of sand to a golf ball, be just one or numerous. If the stone forms at the outlet of the gallbladder it can obstruct bile flow and the gallbladder can get inflamed. If the stone slips into the bile duct and blocks opening of the pancreas it can cause acute pancreatitis. Some people are at a higher risk to form gallstones. They are middle aged women, pregnant women, women on birth control pills or hormone therapy, Native and Mexican Americans, and men and women who are obese. Symptoms: Include a steady severe pain in the upper abdomen, between the shoulder blades, or under the right shoulder, nausea and vomiting. Often “attacks” occur after ingesting a fatty meal causing a feeling of bloating, gas, or pressure, as well as belching, and indigestion. It may also be accompanied by yellow skin or whites of the eyes (jaundice), clay colored stools, chills, fever, and sweating. Answered by Hsiu Heartsill 2 years ago.

Diarrhea Every Morning Answered by Melinda Durrell 2 years ago.
The causes of diarrhea can be from mostly anything, can come from stress with a spouse or family or work related stress. It could come from an infection of your intestinal lining or some other problem in your GI tract. Have you seen your family physician about this problem or a Gastroenterologist about this? Having this much trouble with your bowels is not normal. I strongly recommend you seek medical advice and actively seek some form of treatment for this problem. Medications and medical technology as a whole has come a long way in diagnosing and treating all forms of GI problems. I know. I've had numerous problems in those areas myself. Do seek help for this problem and soon. I hope that you feel better soon and I hope I was of some help to you. Answered by Kira Simor 2 years ago.
You need to see a doctor, you could have anything from Crohn's disease, the Diverticulitis or IBS, irritable bowel syndrome. But it needs to checked out and don't leave it too long.

Can i take an anti nausea medicine while taking percocet?
Are there any anti nausea medicines that i can take while on percocet? (its too late in the evening to ask my doctor or a pharmacist)
Asked by Myra Kollman 2 years ago.
With respect to certain drugs, here is a partial list of things NOT to take with oxycodone (percocet). As you see, Dramamine is on this list. Also, please note that BENADRYL has moderate interaction with Percocet and they shouldn't be taken togther (not on this list, it is available in a PDR - Physician's Desk Reference) BTW - Benadryl is for allergic reactions, not anti-nausea : Cold or allergy medicine, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures, depression or anxiety can add to sleepiness caused by oxycodone. Tell your doctor if you regularly use any of these medicines, or any other narcotic pain medicine. Before taking Percocet, tell your doctor if you are using any of the following drugs: * glycopyrrolate (Robinul); * mepenzolate (Cantil); * atropine (Donnatal, and others), benztropine (Cogentin), dimenhydrinate (Dramamine), methscopolamine (Pamine), or scopolamine (Transderm-Scop); * bladder or urinary medications such as darifenacin (Enablex), flavoxate (Urispas), oxybutynin (Ditropan, Oxytrol), tolterodine (Detrol), or solifenacin (Vesicare); * a bronchodilator such as ipratropium (Atrovent) or tiotropium (Spiriva); or * irritable bowel medications such as dicyclomine (Bentyl), hyoscyamine (Anaspaz, Cystospaz, Levsin, and others), or propantheline (Pro-Banthine). I'd recommend eating ginger. You won't have drug interactions and will reduce the wear and tear on your liver/kidneys from taking medicine (which, of course, is sometimes necessary, but best to avoid if possible). Medicinal Uses and Indications (for ginger): Today, health care professionals commonly recommend to help prevent or treat nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness, pregnancy, and cancer chemotherapy. It is also used as a digestive aid for mild stomach upset, as support in inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, and may even be used in heart disease or cancer. In addition to providing relief from nausea and vomiting, ginger extract has long been used in traditional medical practices to reduce inflammation. In fact, many health care professionals use ginger to help treat health problems associated with inflammation, such as arthritis and ulcerative colitis. In a study of 261 people with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, those who received a ginger extract twice daily experienced less pain and required fewer pain-killing medications compared to those who received placebo. Although a few studies have shown a benefit of ginger for arthritis, one trial found that the herb was no more effective than ibuprofen (a medication frequently used to treat OA) or placebo in reducing symptoms of OA. Motion Sickness Several studies suggest that ginger may be more effective than placebo in reducing symptoms associated with motion sickness. In one trial of 80 novice sailors (prone to motion sickness), those who took powdered ginger experienced a significant reduction in vomiting and cold sweating compared to those who took placebo. Similar results were found in a study with healthy volunteers. While these results are promising, other studies suggest that ginger is not as effective as medications in reducing symptoms associated with motion sickness. In a small study of volunteers who were given ginger (fresh root and powder form), scopolamine (a medication commonly prescribed for motion sickness), or placebo, those receiving the medication experienced significantly fewer symptoms compared to those who received ginger. Conventional prescription and nonprescription medicines that decrease nausea may also cause unwanted side effects, such as dry mouth and drowsiness. Given the safety of ginger, many people find it a welcome alternative to these medications to relieve motion sickness. Answered by Adella Lovin 2 years ago.

Nausea Medicine Phenergan Answered by Giuseppina Phippen 2 years ago.
If this condition you have is Chronic, then I would certainly be asking your doctor for a referral to a Pain Management Centre. At these centres they specialise in treating long term pain. As a result of that they are far more proficient than the average GP You will usually find one associated with any hospital that has a dedicated Orthopaedic and Spinal Centre. For example here in Sydney Australia there is an excellent one attached to The Royal North Shore Hospital. I'm assuming from what you've said the underlying condition is also being looked at from a treatment point. If its treatable then there must be a concentration on doing so along with the pain management ( Research shows better recovery when pain is properly managed). If the condition is not treatable then that is even greater reason to have a more professional approach to the management of the resulting pain. Answered by Edelmira Guzzio 2 years ago.

I've changed my eating habits- eating more fruit, drinking lots of water and avoiding my 'trigger' foods- but none of the changes seem to help. I'm a dancer and the only time i feel relief is when im dancing.......

So, what are some ways that help you calm your symptoms and episodes ?? Answered by Philomena Coots 2 years ago.
I too have IBS and know how embarrassing it can be to have an "episode". Has your doctor given you an anti-spasmotic like Librax or Pamine Forte? these drugs will help your colon not got into spasms and cause horrific pain. Try to lessen your stress. This can be a trigger. Maybe have a private meeting with all of your teachers and let them know or get a statement from your doctor and ask them to be discrete about it. It will get better. Most people who suffer IBS will go through spells of attacks. What I do is take anti-spasmotics and increase my fiber intake, avoid trigger foods, get plenty of rest and eat simple stuff like jello, soups(not dairy based-those are usually triggers), rice, etc...Good luck(and keep on dancing :o) Answered by Cordell Topolansky 2 years ago.

number one, try to rule out if you are lactose intolerant. try going a week without any milk or dairy products and see if that helps. number two, you may have IBS or irritable bowel syndrome. with that there will be certain foods and certain stress levels that may cause you to have to go to the bathroom frequently and at a moments notice. nothing horible you just have to watch out and be prepared anytime things get stressful. number three, you could have crohn's or colitis. both very painful bowel diseases. most often you start bleeding with them. since you didn't state that you had blood while you had a bowel movement I will quickly sort of rule those out. number four, have them check you for H. pylorus bacteria in your mouth and blood. it is a nasty bacteria that can cause ulcers and make you have horrible diarrhea and smelly flatulence. it sounds to me like lactose intolerance or some sort of IBS. it could possibly be the H. pylorus bacteria. but ask them about all of the testing options before they make you do a colonoscopy. those are horrible, trust me. ooooh, and if they do make you have a colonoscopy, ask for the powdered form of the stimulant instead of the watered form. the powdered form of the laxative you can put in like Powerade and Gatorade so that it doesn't taste awful! good luck, my prayers are with you! Answered by Deetta Khalifah 2 years ago.
Below is a link I found about IBS. I highly doubt it to be an ulcer, and the ovarian cysts are nothing to worry about. The cysts usually go away in time, I get it too, and its most likely that you were just ovulating. I think youre doctor is right that you have IBS. You should read up about the symptoms. And about the period thing, the website also stated: "women are roughly three times more likely than men to suffer from it. Women with IBS seem to have more symptoms during their menstrual periods, suggesting that reproductive hormones may play a role in this disorder." If you think there is a misdiagnosis or you think that you might have an ulcer, talk to your doctor about it. Im sure that he/she will help you ease your worries by doing some tests.

I still have some problems, but not nearly to the extent that they used to be. The only thing that I still have to watch is my diet.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome and intimacy?
Hi Generally gets stomach cramps when she's stressed, before exams, interviews and so on... Now when she is intimate with a guy, will she get stress and stomach cramps - and then be put off from being intimate? Basically will the intimacy give her cramps/stress, even after foreplay and so on.
Asked by Shala Sickel 2 years ago.
Hi, I have IBS, GERD, spastic colon, and I only have 2/3 of a colon after surgery, so in other words this area is sort of my expertise. The IBS does not exactly give you a choice when it will kick in. Usually the stomach cramps associated with stress come for a brief period then fade. If the cramping and symptoms are that bad for her, she really should see a doctor. There are tons of medicines out there she can benefit from. I personally like Pamine Forte to stop the cramping and spasms. Now, as for the sex, I would really not even consider this an option for ignoring intimacy. My husband and I (married 9 years) have never had a problem with this interuppting my enjoyment of sex or other activities. I would say just take it slow and easy and according to her pace. Answered by Ardith Genereux 2 years ago.
This is a worisome problem. About 50% of women who have irritable bowel syndrome have been abused (physically or emotionally) at sometime in their life. I am suspicious that this person may have been sexually abused at some point and needs to see a psychologist/psychiatrist/counselor in addition to a gastroenterologist.

If this is her first time and she's exceptionally anxious about it (in other words, has ANY doubts) then she might get stressed enough to not want to have sex. Chances are however, that she's not going to have an attack DURING the act...she will most likely have an attack prior (in the afternoon, say) to the activity -- if she has one at all.
