Glaucoma Help?
Do you have glaucoma or know anyone that does? I need some answers to some questions i have about the disease. if you can help please email me or post a relative comment Asked by Jesenia Bladt 1 year ago.

I have mild glaucoma, use Timoptic. There is good info on Webmd.com Enter Glaucoma in the Search box. Answered by Corey Bridgens 1 year ago.

Glaucoma is a group of diseases of the optic nerve involving loss of retinal ganglion cells in a characteristic pattern of optic neuropathy. Although raised intraocular pressure is a significant risk factor for developing glaucoma, there is no set threshold for intraocular pressure that causes glaucoma. One person may develop nerve damage at a relatively low pressure, while another person may have high eye pressures for years and yet never develop damage. Untreated glaucoma leads to permanent damage of the optic nerve and resultant visual field loss, which can progress to blindness. Glaucoma has been nicknamed "the sneak thief of sight".Worldwide, it is the second leading cause of blindness. Glaucoma affects 1 in 200 people aged 50 and younger and 1 in 10 over the age of 80.

Used as a Glaucoma Treatment, Beta-Blocker Eye Drops May Cause Serious Adverse Reactions in Some New studies of beta-blocker eye drops, which are used to treat blindness-causing glaucoma, show that the eye drops may cause deaths, heart attacks, serious drops in blood pressure, fainting spells and other complications in patients. Q. Can glaucoma eye drops lower heart rate? Ever since I started using timolol I haven’t been able to reach my target heart rate when I exercise. A. Timolol (Timoptic) is a beta blocker, which means it can slow heart rate whether taken orally or as eye drops Ocular Route: Drugs used to treat eye disorders (such as glaucoma, conjunctivitis, and injuries) can be mixed with inactive substances to make a liquid, gel, or ointment, so that they can be applied to the eye. Liquid eye drops are relatively easy to use but may run off the eye too quickly to be absorbed well.Gel and ointment formulations keep the drug in contact with the eye surface longer. Solid inserts, which release the drug continuously and in slow amounts, are also available, but they may be hard to put in and keep in place. Ocular drugs are almost always used for their local effects. For example, artificial tears are used to relieve dry eyes. Other drugs (for example, those used to treat glaucoma such as acetazolamide and betaxolol and those used to dilate pupils, such as phenylephrine and tropicamide) produce a local effect after they are absorbed through the cornea and conjunctiva. Some of these drugs then enter the bloodstream and may have unwanted effects on other parts of the body There are many reasons why vision care professionals will prescribe prescription eye drops. One of the most common issues needing prescriptive therapy that anyone will face is the highly contagious conjunctivitis commonly known as pink eye. This is redness of the white part of the eyes and membranes on the inner part of the eyelid and is very easily spread to other persons. This condition is most prominent in children who aren't as careful about hygienic issues as they should be. There may be other symptoms that accompany this condition, such as a runny nose and sinus congestion. Since there are two forms of this condition, viral and bacterial, it is important that the sufferer be seen by a vision care professional to ascertain the exact type. Some cases of conjunctivitis may need prescription drops and others just warm compresses applied to the eyes Glaucoma is a condition where there is excess pressure on the eye due to fluid not draining from it properly. The disease can seriously reduce peripheral vision and can lead to blindness if not treated. There are three types of prescription eye drops that are used for this condition, including pilocarpine, epinephrine and beta-blockers. Some drugs are not appropriate for people with certain health issues, so it is very important that a person's vision care specialist know all of the drugs a person is taking. Medicine for the eyes can be just as deadly as medicine taken orally.Prescription eye drops are just as potent in many cases as any other drug we might take by injection or orally in pill form and should be viewed that way by the person using them. Usually the Drs and Pharmacists caution you not to take alcohol with any drug. Answered by Young Dunny 1 year ago.

Drink is not ideal while you are taking this medication. Chances are there won't be a reaction between the alcohol and the eye drops, but alcohol causes dehydration which can irritate your eyes and potentially slow down healing. Ideally, you might want to be the designated driver tonight. And if you're going places where smoking is allowed, that can also irritate your eye. Also, conjunctivits is a contagious disease, so if you must go out, make sure you maintain strict hygiene. Wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly and often (two rounds of "Happy Birthday" is about right). Don't touch your eyes or tears, but if you do, wash your hands immediately! Answered by Courrege 1 year ago.

you could drink yet you will in all risk get sicker because of the fact the antibiotic wont be as effective. it may additionally disillusioned your abdomen and you are going to be able to vomit. I continually vomit whilst ingesting alcohol on antibiotics. Answered by Muoi Heinemeyer 1 year ago.

Answered by Elois Mortis 1 year ago.

I have them too. To lighten eyebags, sleep early and use bloodless compresses on them to lower the puffiness. To quilt them up, you ought to use a well concealer ideally a liquid yellow headquartered one. In tapping movement, combo the concealer into the eyebags- do not ever pull the dermis at the undereye field. Asian eyes appear very lovely with colors reminiscent of purples and impartial colors like browns. Line the higher eyelids with black eyeliner and white eyeliner at the slash lashline. This will open and brighten the eyes. Curl the lashes and follow mascara. Answered by Ernest Gayman 1 year ago.


Medical Marijuana, In Calif. 1 day, have glaucoma, from Texas.?
Will be in San Francisco for most of a day, would like to see if marijuana can help. It is not legal in Texas so getting an o.k. from my doctor is not an option. I do have my boxes of Timoptic etc. Would that be enough? Can this be done in a day? Bill - using my friends email....... She knows. Asked by Marshall Przybyla 1 year ago.

1 day is not enough time to get a prescription, and a MM card. Sorry, you have no chance of legally buying MJ. I suggest going to a head shop and buying k2 or Spice, which is legal and chemically practically the exact same thing as THC. Or, take a side trip to Oakland and go to Oaksterdam University where they can give you pointers on how to get a legal MM card. Answered by Phillip Nasseri 1 year ago.


Eleven year old boy has glaucoma?
my brother has a eye pressure of 29 and they says it glaucoma but hes eleven, its not hereditary so what could of caused it? Asked by Joellen Otting 1 year ago.

Thats sooooo wierd and creepy! I'm 17 and I babysit and eleven 12 months historic boy and I recognize that the moms and dads would not inquire from me to do this sort of factor in 1 years!!!! You must no longer move via with it seeing that I can not even feel of the way it might be extra awkward and beside the point! You're just for years aside! I'm lovely definite the boy goes to friek out when you move in there and notice his privates! I can not suppose that he can not wash himself via now... might be he fairly can however his mother is solely off her rocker! I might critically speak to the mummy and inform her that you're no longer relaxed with that and can handiest babysit for her if thats no longer required. Even if he does not get the best bathtub the day you babysit him, can not the mother simply do this the following day or earlier than you return. It's no longer that massive of a deal not to shower sooner or later! I recognize that a few adults on right here have instructed you to simply move via with this however I do not feel they are when you consider that how embarrising the obstacle might be. I think humorous adequate babysitting an eleven 12 months historic boy so I type of grew to become extra like peers with him then a babysitter in order that he would possibly not think wierd approximately it so I can not suppose doing what you are requested too! I might inform the mother that there's noooooooo method I can do this! Sorry! Answered by Viviana Altermatt 1 year ago.

blunt or chemical injury to the eye, severe eye infection, blockage of blood vessels in the eye, inflammatory conditions of the eye, and occasionally eye surgery to correct another condition. Glaucoma usually occurs in both eyes, but it may involve each eye to a different extent. Answered by Hae Pizzino 1 year ago.

Treatment of heart failure focuses on improving the symptoms and preventing the progression of the disease. Reversible causes of the heart failure also need to be addressed: (e.g. infection, alcohol ingestion, anemia, thyrotoxicosis, arrhythmia, hypertension). Treatments include lifestyle and pharmacological modalities. The patient had left lower lobar pneumonia and treated with Ceftriaxone, a third-generation cephalosporin antibiotic and Azithromycin. This might have helped to improve her pulmonary blood circulation. Heart failure is a chronic disease. Emphasis is given to find out the cause of heart failure and treat the same in early stages. In this particular case, the symptoms of heart failure might have reduced. Please note that emphysema/COPD and underactive thyroid can cause heart failure. Answered by Tawanda Garraghty 1 year ago.

I have chf was doing O.K. but got infection in chest - like broncial - put on Azithromycin, I am also on Lasix and other medications - long list. Reason I mention Lasix is because the antibiotic has given me pretty severe diarrhea and am afraid of dehydration. Was hospitalized several times low potassium. Now on potassium saver. Will call Dr. but that does not always work out well. I am unsure whether to go to Itnernest (who doesn't work well for me) or to a Cardiologist. Help me Answered by Wes Riedesel 1 year ago.

Well I've experienced this in pets and it all comes down to whether your dog is suffering every day or not. I mean you should pay attention to how well your dog caan get around, if it can go up or down stairs, if its out of breath all the time, and other things like that. If its symptoms seem very extreme I would go ahead and put it down. It doesn't deserve to suffer severly every day and you would be doing the right thing.

Medicine for the eyes can be just as deadly as medicine taken orally.Prescription eye drops are just as potent in many cases as any other drug we might take by injection or orally in pill form and should be viewed that way by the person using them. Usually the Drs and Pharmacists caution you not to take alcohol with any drug. Answered by Estela Prechtel 1 year ago.

Drink is not ideal while you are taking this medication. Chances are there won't be a reaction between the alcohol and the eye drops, but alcohol causes dehydration which can irritate your eyes and potentially slow down healing. Ideally, you might want to be the designated driver tonight. And if you're going places where smoking is allowed, that can also irritate your eye. Also, conjunctivits is a contagious disease, so if you must go out, make sure you maintain strict hygiene. Wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly and often (two rounds of "Happy Birthday" is about right). Don't touch your eyes or tears, but if you do, wash your hands immediately!

I have them too. To lighten eyebags, sleep early and use bloodless compresses on them to lower the puffiness. To quilt them up, you ought to use a well concealer ideally a liquid yellow headquartered one. In tapping movement, combo the concealer into the eyebags- do not ever pull the dermis at the undereye field. Asian eyes appear very lovely with colors reminiscent of purples and impartial colors like browns. Line the higher eyelids with black eyeliner and white eyeliner at the slash lashline. This will open and brighten the eyes. Curl the lashes and follow mascara. Answered by Forest Mottillo 1 year ago.


Medical Marijuana, In Calif. 1 day, have glaucoma, from Texas.?
Will be in San Francisco for most of a day, would like to see if marijuana can help. It is not legal in Texas so getting an o.k. from my doctor is not an option. I do have my boxes of Timoptic etc. Would that be enough? Can this be done in a day? Bill - using my friends email....... She knows. Asked by Chastity Deavila 1 year ago.

1 day is not enough time to get a prescription, and a MM card. Sorry, you have no chance of legally buying MJ. I suggest going to a head shop and buying k2 or Spice, which is legal and chemically practically the exact same thing as THC. Or, take a side trip to Oakland and go to Oaksterdam University where they can give you pointers on how to get a legal MM card. Answered by Mariko Mancillas 1 year ago.


Eleven year old boy has glaucoma?
my brother has a eye pressure of 29 and they says it glaucoma but hes eleven, its not hereditary so what could of caused it? Asked by Verlene Amyx 1 year ago.

Thats sooooo wierd and creepy! I'm 17 and I babysit and eleven 12 months historic boy and I recognize that the moms and dads would not inquire from me to do this sort of factor in 1 years!!!! You must no longer move via with it seeing that I can not even feel of the way it might be extra awkward and beside the point! You're just for years aside! I'm lovely definite the boy goes to friek out when you move in there and notice his privates! I can not suppose that he can not wash himself via now... might be he fairly can however his mother is solely off her rocker! I might critically speak to the mummy and inform her that you're no longer relaxed with that and can handiest babysit for her if thats no longer required. Even if he does not get the best bathtub the day you babysit him, can not the mother simply do this the following day or earlier than you return. It's no longer that massive of a deal not to shower sooner or later! I recognize that a few adults on right here have instructed you to simply move via with this however I do not feel they are when you consider that how embarrising the obstacle might be. I think humorous adequate babysitting an eleven 12 months historic boy so I type of grew to become extra like peers with him then a babysitter in order that he would possibly not think wierd approximately it so I can not suppose doing what you are requested too! I might inform the mother that there's noooooooo method I can do this! Sorry! Answered by Serafina Lushbaugh 1 year ago.

blunt or chemical injury to the eye, severe eye infection, blockage of blood vessels in the eye, inflammatory conditions of the eye, and occasionally eye surgery to correct another condition. Glaucoma usually occurs in both eyes, but it may involve each eye to a different extent. Answered by Ettie Hersh 1 year ago.

Treatment of heart failure focuses on improving the symptoms and preventing the progression of the disease. Reversible causes of the heart failure also need to be addressed: (e.g. infection, alcohol ingestion, anemia, thyrotoxicosis, arrhythmia, hypertension). Treatments include lifestyle and pharmacological modalities. The patient had left lower lobar pneumonia and treated with Ceftriaxone, a third-generation cephalosporin antibiotic and Azithromycin. This might have helped to improve her pulmonary blood circulation. Heart failure is a chronic disease. Emphasis is given to find out the cause of heart failure and treat the same in early stages. In this particular case, the symptoms of heart failure might have reduced. Please note that emphysema/COPD and underactive thyroid can cause heart failure. Answered by Britt Tagata 1 year ago.

I have chf was doing O.K. but got infection in chest - like broncial - put on Azithromycin, I am also on Lasix and other medications - long list. Reason I mention Lasix is because the antibiotic has given me pretty severe diarrhea and am afraid of dehydration. Was hospitalized several times low potassium. Now on potassium saver. Will call Dr. but that does not always work out well. I am unsure whether to go to Itnernest (who doesn't work well for me) or to a Cardiologist. Help me Answered by Jeneva Hatch 1 year ago.

Well I've experienced this in pets and it all comes down to whether your dog is suffering every day or not. I mean you should pay attention to how well your dog caan get around, if it can go up or down stairs, if its out of breath all the time, and other things like that. If its symptoms seem very extreme I would go ahead and put it down. It doesn't deserve to suffer severly every day and you would be doing the right thing. Im sorry about this tragedy and I hope you can find comfort and be able to make the right decison. Answered by Malinda Amarante 1 year ago.

Please help ten points for the best answer...what are the 38 drugs that can cause drug induced lupus?
Asked by Tona Erdahl 1 year ago.

Please note that this list is only partial - there now appear to be at least 70 meds which can cause DILE or DIL, drug-induced Lupus Erythematosis Atenolol (Tenormin) Captopril (Capoten) Carbamazepine Chlorpromazine HCl (Thorazine) Clonidine HCl (Catapres) Danazol (Danocrine) Diclofenac (Cataflam, Voltaren) Disopyramide (Norpace) Ethosuximide (Zarontin) Gold compounds Griseofulvin Hydralazine HCl (Apresoline) Ibuprofen Interferon alfa Isoniazid (Laniazid, Nydrazid) Labetalol HCl (Normodyne, Trandate) Leuprolide acetate (Lupron) Levodopa (Dopar, Larodopa) Lithium carbonate Lovastatin (Mevacor) Mephenytoin (Mesantoin) Methyldopa (Aldomet) Methysergide maleate (Sansert) Minoxidil (Loniten, Rogaine) Nalidixic acid (NegGram) Nitrofurantoin (Furadantin, Macrobid, Macrodantin) Oral contraceptives Penicillamine (Cuprimine, Depen) Penicillin Phenelzine sulfate (Nardil) Phenytoin sodium (Dilantin) Prazosin (Minipress) Primidone (Mysoline) Procainamide HCl (Procan, Pronestyl) Promethazine HCl (Anergan, Phenergan) Propylthiouracil Psoralen Quinidine Spironolactone (Aldactone) Streptomycin sulfate Sulindac (Clinoril) Sulfasalazine (Azulfidine) Tetracycline Thioridazine HCl (Mellaril) Timolol maleate (Betimol, Timoptic) Tolazamide (Tolinase) Tolmetin sodium (Tolectin) Trimethadione (Tridione) One thing I happened to notice is that several meds used to treat Parkinson's disease are in this list. And the problem is that although Lupus is not curable, in DILE, the symptoms are reversible once the medications are discontinued. Of course in PD, that might not be possible, The most common problems are caused by only a handful of the above. Answered by Minerva Gackle 1 year ago.
