Tobacco and Sandostatin Lar?
Would Sandostatin would have any complications at all PS: Dont give the its bad for you comments
Asked by Sheilah Norbo 6 months ago.
I don't see why tobacco and sandostatin LAR would have any negative interactions with each other, because from what I remember S-LAR is used to treat gastro diseases of some sort, right? However, I'm far from a medical expert so your best bet is to consult the physician that prescribed the shots to you, or if you can't get a hold of them ask a local pharmacist and they'll probably know the contraindications of most commonly prescribed drugs. I've found that they're usually more knowledgeable than doctors, as well. Answered by Abbie Wardrip 6 months ago.
How does sandostatin react with hypertensive medications?
Asked by Sandie Schultes 6 months ago.
You have to monitor your electrolytes, (Na, K, Ca, etc). The combination of your medication with some types of HTN meds (diuretic, HCTZ, calcium channel blockers, etc) can cause your electrolytes to become too low. Answered by Virgil Weyandt 6 months ago.
How safe or unsafe is it to give Sandostatin LAR after only 1 subcutaneous 'test dose'?
study protocol orders - for an octreotide naive patient- one subcutaneous dosage of 100mcg, wait an hour, then give an LAR 20. Many here are not comfortable skipping a 2 week SC start, like what is normally done. Has anyone given an LAR on essentially the 1st day of Sandostatin treatment?
Asked by Lavelle Hooton 6 months ago.
I too generally give the two-week startup dose first, but I believe many skip quickly ahead, largely based on the general safety and lack of side effects with this drug. Blessings Answered by Margorie Uhyrek 6 months ago.
What are the best (easiest to insert and least painful) syringes to use for subcutaneous injections?
This is for Sandostatin/Octreotide injections.
Asked by Elke Wittkop 6 months ago.
I would think they would do that at the Oncologist office or your cancer center but as far as pain and needles, I think a 22 or 23 gage is about the best for a blood draw or injection. If you want an IV, I would go for the 21 gage because anything smaller just won't work. Phlebotomy is an unappreciated skill. The first thing you get or encounter is blood work. And it's painful, sucks and also sets the tone for your entire visit. Answered by Ethelene Critzman 6 months ago.

You need to choose the answer yourself. There is nothing that oyu can do once it has gone to the voters and has been choosen. What I will typically do is when I get the email reminder that my question is about to expire, I will go and the answer that I thought was the best I will pick.

I been recently been suffering from chronic pain. I have a rare disease called MAS or mccune Albright syndrome. It's a very rare disease that causes bones to fracture more easily then normal and causes growth of fibrous dysplasia. It causes pain during the night and sometimes during the day. It causes deformation of the bones if they fracture. It is different for anybody who has my disease. For an example my left toe and my left thumb broke and grew on a angle of 45 but on my right it's normal. They hurt plus I had to switch writing hands from the unbareble pain. Do I meet the requirments fo medical marijuana in Ontario, Canada? I have read lots that it's legal then it's not, yet then again I know people who are or were prescribed to it. Also would it interact in a bad way with sandostatin lar? Answered by Augustina Mondy 6 months ago.
You definitely meet the requirements, they might ask you if you want some kind of pills first, just say something like, someone i know almost O D on pills (Over Dosed) and i don't feel conformable taking them, then ask about the Medical. * If you use a vaporizer i do not think it will affect it, no smoke comes from a vaporizer Answered by Evon Tyrance 6 months ago.

Uncle Joe began to hemorrhage from the esophagus. He was rushed to the emergency room, where he was intubated & a rapid infusion of 5% dextrose plus thiamine & colloid solution was started. He also was given an infusion of Sandostatin to stop the bleeding. His blood was typed &he received fresh frozen plasma, fresh blood, and vitamin K-1. He received endoscopic varicealligatioh, in which elastic bands were placed around 2 ruptured varices (varicose veins) to strangle & obliterate them. He will require this procedure every 2-3 weeks until the esophageal varices have disappeared. He has been started on a beta blocker proptanolol 40 mg PO bid & an ethanol drip. He has a nasogastric tube and is NPO for the next 24h. Gastric lavage thru the nasogastric tube will be performed repeatedly over the next 24h to examine aspirated stomach contents & identify any rebleeding. Uncle Joe's skin has an orange tan. His breast got bigger. He has stretch marks on his belly. He has no hairs on his legs & arms. He has red splotches on his nose, and his palms are really red. Questions: 1.What health problem does uncle joe probably have? 2.What caused the esophageal varices? 3.Why would the unvle joe be started on the beta blocker( which slows the heart and lower blood pressure? 4.Why would uncle joe be started on an ethanol drip? 5.Why does uncle joe have breasts, stretch marks, tan, red marks on his face? 6.Uncle joe has hepatitis C. how does this viral infection play a part in his current problem and prognosis? 7.What is uncle joe’s prognosis? Are there any treatment for this? Answered by Jacob Ciaffone 6 months ago.
Great question! Is this some kind of home work? Anyway, #1, Uncle Joe is an alcoholic with severe liver damage, most likely cirrhosis, which means there are parts of his liver which are now dead. #2. Esophageal varices are caused by Portal Hypertension which is common in alcoholics, again, due to cirrhosis of the liver. #3, the beta blocker is used to reduce the Portal Hypertension, similar to reducing regular old high blood pressure, for which beta blockers are still commonly used. #4. Ethanol drip is to prevent Uncle Joe from going into the DT's (google that one...lol), which are triggered when withdrawal from alcohol kicks in. #5. The orange tan is from increased iron in his blood, called alcohol-induced Hemochromatosis, again from the damaged liver. Too much iron is remaining in the body and it will collect in various organs, including the skin, and turn the skin a tan colour. The swelling in his belly is Ascites, again, the product of advanced liver disease, not a good sign. Hard to survive long without a liver. #6. Hep C will be a contributing factor to his liver damage, making it even worse. #7. Uncle Joe's prognosis will depend on how much liver function he has lost, or, how much function is still there. Cirrhosis will stop in it's tracks if the liver doesn't continue to be damaged, depending on how advanced the damage is, of course. It sounds, by his symptoms that he has quite significant disease, and like I said, it is hard to survive long with out a functioning liver. Answered by Lyndia Gutteridge 6 months ago.

Hip pain causing insomnia?
No Medicine that will react to sandostatin lar, I'm under 18 morphine is a type of heroine thus really addictive I'm lying in my bed suffering in pain
Asked by Dan Chalcraft 6 months ago.
I have massive pain at night from my hips. I got a very rare disease called mccune Albright syndrome which causes weak bones which fracture easily. When they fracture fibrous dysplasia tends to build up which ends in severe pain that leave me suffering in the night thus causing insomnia. I have tried taking tylenol but it dosent help. The doctor wants to prescribe medicine that I'm afraid is addicting and has awful side affects. I know what's it's like to go thru withdrawls of morphine from one of several surgerys I been thru. The question is is there any other alternatives I can take that will help me sleep, take away the pain and is not physicly addicting. Also none that have blood finer properties because I have been advised that it is bad if I have a opperation because il bleed out. Thank you and sleep well ;( . Answered by Graig Pereiro 6 months ago.
bisphosphonates are worthwhile considering. There is some evidence they help with pain and maybe fracture risk. For the pain itself: low dose tricyclics are worth considering, they help with pain and cause sedation. They are not pain killies per se. Tramadol is an analgecic with low potential for dependance. After that you are looking at transdermal patches like Fentanly ot Buprinorphone. They are both opoiods but don't cause a "high" as only a small amount gets into you system over time. Used properly they help and I have a number of patients that do well with them. Answered by Carmelita Ratzloff 6 months ago.
They are using infusion pumps to deliver tiny amounts of morphine or some other analgesic directly into the spinal fluid. The dosage is so low, it often cannot be detected in a blood test for it. This was at one time pretty much restricted to patients with cancer. However, now it is being used for other severe pain syndromes not related to cancer. Ask your doctor about it, Really a simple procedure. As with any procedure, there are some risks, but I have several patients using pumps for RSD ( another chronic painful condition) and have not seen any problems. They will have the statistics. Answered by Sage Seawell 6 months ago.
Insomnia can often be the result of a vitamin deficiency, even having just a small vitamin deficiency could potentially cause muscle tension as well as insomnia it might be wise to go and see the doctor and also have a test for any vitamin deficiency. Vitamin D is often a cause, Calcium Deficiency could cause numerous issues one being insomnia. See your doctor to be safe. Hope that helps. Answered by Theodore Brough 6 months ago.
