What does this mean in laymans terms: tolterodine and oxcarbazepine (Moderate Drug-Drug) MONITOR: Based on in vitro data, coadministration with oxcarbazepine may decrease the plasma concentrations of drugs that are substrates of the CYP450 3A4 and 3A5 isoenzymes. The mechanism is accelerated clearance due to induction of CYP450 3A activities by oxcarbazepine. In one study, a single dose of oxcarbazepine (600 mg) had no effect on the pharmacokinetics of felodipine, a CYP450 3A4 substrate, while repeated doses (450 mg twice a day) decreased the peak plasma concentration and area under the concentration-time curve of felodipine (10 mg once daily) by 34% and 28%, respectively. Likewise, in a single case study, cyclosporine trough concentrations decreased to subtherapeutic levels a little over 2 weeks after addition of oxcarbazepine in a renal transplant patient. These results indicate that enzymatic induction occurs after multiple doses. MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised if oxcarbazepine must be used concurrently with medications that undergo metabolism by CYP450 3A4 and/or 3A5, particularly those with a narrow therapeutic range. Dosage adjustments as well as clinical and laboratory monitoring may be appropriate for some drugs whenever oxcarbazepine is added to or withdrawn from therapy. Answered by Nikita Mckosky 5 months ago.

The CYP450s are enzymes that are made by the liver. Their job is to get rid of toxins. Any drug, even good ones, is considered a toxin by the body. Sometimes drugs (e.g. oxcarbazepine) stimulate the body to make even more CYP450s to handle these new "toxins" that are suddenly on the scene. The more CYPs you have the more some OTHER drugs can get degraded. Sometimes this can make the level of these drugs can get too low. So the doctor or pharmacist has to be careful with someone getting oxcarbazepine if that patient is on other drugs as well. The patients other drug-level might drop too low.

Information on medicine detrol?
detrol for bladder control? Asked by Kirby Freilino 5 months ago.

I have worked at a long term care pharmacy for years... so I was able to find this information on our operating system hopes this helps you. Why is this medication prescribed? Tolterodine is used to relieve urinary difficulties, including frequent urination and inability to control urination. Tolterodine is in a class of medications called antimuscarinics. It works by preventing bladder contraction. How should this medicine be used? Tolterodine comes as a tablet and an extended-release (long-acting) capsule to take by mouth. The tablet is usually taken twice a day. The extended-release capsule is usually taken once a day with liquids. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take tolterodine exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Swallow the extended-release capsules whole; do not split, chew, or crush them. Other uses for this medicine This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information. What special precautions should I follow? Before taking tolterodine, tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to tolterodine or any other drugs. tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications you are taking, especially clarithromycin (Biaxin), erythromycin (E-mycin, Ery-Tab, others), fluconazole (Diflucan), itraconazole (Sporanox), ketoconazole (Nizoral), medications for glaucoma, and vitamins. tell your doctor if you have or have ever had kidney or liver disease, glaucoma, or an obstructive gastrointestinal disease, such as pyloric stenosis. tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding. If you become pregnant while taking tolterodine, call your doctor. What should I do if I forget a dose? Take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. What side effects can this medication cause? Tolterodine may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away: dry mouth blurred vision upset stomach headache constipation dry eyes dizziness If you experience any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately: difficulty urinating rash chest pain Answered by Lucilla Palas 5 months ago.

Do you know anyone in their twenties with urinary incontinence problems?
Asked by Paola Miears 5 months ago.

Yes. Me. There are also millions of others just like us around the globe. It sucks at first but there are plenty of products available to help manage our condition. One of the previous answers mentioned a drug named tolterodine. I've never tried this and am not sure how well it works if at all. I've also recently read a report that Botox injections into the bladder may cure some forms of incontinence. I'll need to do more research into both of those soon... I've learned to live with it though and still do everything that every other twenty year old does. I hang with friends, party, go out for the occasional drink, go to work...all while wearing "protection". I say it like that because lets face it, I'm wearing diapers. It's no big deal really. You'll get used to it after a while. It far better than having an accident in public thats for sure. Anyways if you need more info on all the various products out there or even tips to help learn to live with it you should visit my website The best of luck to you my friend.

This is extremely embarrassing for me, so I would really appreciate responses from people with the same problem, or someone educated that might have a possible resolution. I am a track and field and cross country runner, and about 5 years ago whenever I would be racing and get in a very nervous situation I would start to pee while running. Whenever I won the race or there was not a lot of pressure, this would not happen. But when I was in a big race and a girl passed me that I should be beating or need to beat, this would happen. I've seen a few doctors about this, and none had a resolution. I was given some bladder control medicine and this didn't work. I even went down to the local GNC store and bought some StessTabs to help reduce stress, and this also did not work. This is a very embarrassing thing for me to accept, and if there is anyone out there that has had this same problem, please help! Answered by Lanny Kida 5 months ago.

The major types of medications used to manage urinary incontinence are anticholinergics, alpha-adrenergic agonists and estrogen. Other options include the antidepressant imipramine and the synthetic hormone desmopressin, which is more commonly used for bed-wetting in children. have you tried any of these? I got this from another yahoo answer. so i can't really take the credit for it.... but i hope it helps!! =) Anticholinergics Overactive bladder is characterized by abnormal bladder contractions, which make you want to urinate even when your bladder isn't full. Anticholinergic drugs block the action of a chemical messenger — acetylcholine — that's instrumental in sending the signals that trigger these contractions. Two commonly prescribed anticholinergics are oxybutynin (Ditropan) and tolterodine (Detrol). Alpha-adrenergic agonists Instead of blocking a chemical messenger, as anticholinergic drugs do, alpha-adrenergic agonists mimic a different chemical messenger, norepinephrine. The norepinephrine-like properties of these drugs stimulate alpha-adrenergic receptors. This has the effect of contracting the urethral smooth muscle, thus tightening the urinary sphincter and the muscular valve that prevents urine from leaking. Imipramine Imipramine (Tofranil) is a tricyclic antidepressant that has both anticholinergic and alpha-adrenergic effects. It makes the bladder muscle relax, while causing the smooth muscles at the bladder neck to contract. As such, it may be used to treat mixed — urge and stress — incontinence. Imipramine may cause drowsiness, so it's often taken at night. Because of this, imipramine may be useful for nighttime incontinence, as well. It may also be helpful for children who bed-wet at night (nocturnal enuresis) Desmopressin Desmopressin is a synthetic version of a natural body hormone called anti-diuretic hormone (ADH). This hormone decreases the production of urine. Your body normally produces more ADH at night, so the need to urinate is lower then. In children, bed-wetting may be caused by a shortage of nighttime production of ADH. Desmopressin is commonly used to treat bed-wetting in children and is available as a nasal spray or pill for use before bedtime. Selective anticholinergics. One of the limitations of current anticholinergic drugs is that they affect multiple parts of the body in addition to the bladder. Their effect on the salivary glands, for example, can produce dry mouth, and their effect on the central nervous system, can cause dizziness. Darifenacin (Enablex), solifenacin (Vesicare) and trospium (Sanctura) are three more recently approved anticholinergics that target the bladder specifically in order to treat overactive bladder, without affecting other organs and systems. Capsaicin. Some studies have shown that instilling an extract of capsaicin, the spicy component of hot chili peppers, numbs a hypersensitive bladder. The extract is placed in the bladder through a thin tube (catheter) inserted through the urethra. At first, it stimulates the sensory nerves of the bladder, but after a while, it produces a long-term resistance to sensory activation, which may last for two to seven months. Capsaicin has been used successfully as a treatment for overactive bladder associated with nerve disorders, such as multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injuries. Temporary side effects include discomfort and a burning sensation in the pubic area when the capsaicin is instilled. Instilling the local anesthetic lidocaine before the capsaicin can help alleviate this problem. You also might experience a temporary worsening of your symptoms before they get better. However, at this time, capsaicin isn't readily available — due in part to the severe bladder pain it can cause — and is rarely used outside of clinical studies. Resiniferatoxin. Resiniferatoxin, an extract from a cactus-like plant, has effects similar to those of capsaicin, but a thousand times more potent. Remarkably, though, burning sensations do not occur when resiniferatoxin is infused in the bladder. Studies of resiniferatoxin have found that it doesn't produce the temporary worsening of bladder symptoms seen with capsaicin, and its beneficial effects may last up to three months. Resiniferatoxin is still under investigation and available only to those in clinical studies at this time. Botulinum toxin type A. Injections of botulinum toxin type A (Botox) into the bladder muscle may benefit people who have an overactive bladder. Botox blocks the actions of acetylcholine and paralyzes the bladder muscle. Preliminary studies have found that Botox significantly improves symptoms of incontinence and causes few side effects. Benefits can last up to nine months. Scientists speculate that in cases of severely overactive bladder unrelated to a neurological condition, Botox may be helpful for people who haven't responded to other medications. 3 weeks ago Answered by Gay Waelti 5 months ago.

Identifying the primary signs of diabetes can help you avoid complications with the disease. Unfortunately, many of the diabetes symptoms that present themselves outside of the body are also symptoms of other disorders. This can lead to a lot of wrong diagnoses before properly identifying diabetes and an avenue of treatment is chosen. Still, being able to recognize the primary signs of this sickness can save you a great deal of time. When you realize you have one of the symptoms listed in this answer, get a hold of your medical professional and request to have some testing done. Some people are naturally hungrier than other people. Under the same notion, if you see that you are always hungry, this could be a syndrome of diabetes. Excessive eating is often associated with the wonky blood sugar levels that a person experiences when diabetes first starts setting in. Some people who are battling the onset of diabetes will recognize they keep eating even when they begin to feel full. More often, however, a person who is coming down with diabetes won't ever feel full. If you discover that you can't seem to stop eating or fill up, it is time to contact your primary doctor. Are you more easily irritated and don't know why? While every one has bad moods occasionally, unexplainable irritability could be caused by issues with your blood sugar levels. It is important to get checked for diabetes if your blood sugar levels are not stable. Many people find that their ability to deal with irritation goes down when they are starting to become diabetic because their body stops processing food correctly. So if there is no other reason for your mood swings, you should get tested for diabetes and hypoglycemia. How many times per day do you have to urinate? This is seemingly something you prefer not to answer out loud. You should at least answer the question in your mind. While some may believe that is actually the excessive thirst diabetes sympmtom that makes the excessive urination occur, physicians insist that it is a symptom all on it's own. It you recognize that you are always running to the bathroom--even if you aren't consuming much food or drink--you should talk to your medical professional about checking out your potassium and bladder functions. It is highly imaginable that when the physician tests you out, they may uncover diabetes. Diabetes symptoms are varied but they can be intense. The most exposed indicators (the lack of insulin production) are difficult to observe without complex medical testing. Other indicators are quite evident. At the same time, there are many distinguishable indicators of diabetes that are also apparent signs of other problems and disorders. It is crucial for you to keep an eye on your body (and the bodies of your loved ones). You do not want your disease to be misdiagnosed. Get a second opinion if you are worried your own physician may have misdiagnosed your or your kids. Answered by Martha Tuzzolo 5 months ago.

Well, I am certainly no doctor, but I am an anatomy & physiology nerd. I really don't know what this could be, but it sounds like your sympathetic nervous system makes you get excited when someone passes you, obviously. The only thing I'm thinking is that urine should not be leaving your body unless you want it to. You have an external urethral sphincter, and it's a voluntary muscle. That's what you relax and contract when you need to use the restroom. To me, it sounds like it is not functioning properly. Of course, this is just the first thing that came to my mind. I honestly do not know, but I am interested to know the answer. So, no doctors have found out why this happens? Answered by Pearl Leonides 5 months ago.

What are the symtoms of urge incontinence?
Btw I don't pee on myself or anything like that its just I have the strong urge to urinate, but when I go nothing much comes out, and I feel like I have to after I just went. Sometimes it feels like i'm peeing on myself when I'm not... Asked by Arline Pung 5 months ago.

Urge incontinence involves a strong, sudden need to urinate, followed by a bladder contraction, which results in leakage * Sudden and urgent need to urinate (urinary urgency) * Frequent urination, in the daytime and at night * Abdominal distention or discomfort * Involuntary loss of urine A physical examination will include examination of the abdomen and rectum. Women will also have a pelvic exam. Men will also have a genital exam. In most cases the physical exam reveals nothing abnormal. If there are neurologic causes, other neurologic abnormalities may be found. Tests include the following: * Post-void residual (PVR) to measure amount of urine left after urination * Urinalysis or urine culture to rule out urinary tract infection * Urinary stress test (the patient stands with a full bladder and coughs) * Pad test (after placement of a pre-weighed sanitary pad, patient exercises, then pad is weighed to determine urine loss) * Pelvic or abdominal ultrasound * X-rays with contrast dye * Cystoscopy (inspection of the inside of the bladder) * Urodynamic studies (measurement of pressure and urine flow) * EMG (myogram) - rarely needed Further tests will be performed to rule out other types of incontinence. These tests may include the "Q-tip test," which measures the change in the angle of the urethra at rest and when straining. An angle change of greater than 30 degrees often indicates significant weakness of the muscles that support the bladder, which is common in stress incontinence. Treatment Medications used to treat urge incontinence are aimed at relaxing the involuntary contraction of the bladder and improving bladder function. There are several types of medications that may be used alone or in combination: * Anticholinergic agents (oxybutynin, tolterodine, enablex, sanctura, vesicare, oxytrol) * Antispasmodic medications (flavoxate) * Tricyclic antidepressants (imipramine, doxepin) Oxybutynin (Ditropan) and tolterodine (Detrol) are medications to relax the smooth muscle of the bladder. These are the most commonly used medications for urge incontinence and are available in a once-a-day formulation that makes dosing easy and effective. SURGERY The goal of any surgery to treat urge incontinence is aimed at increasing the storage ability of the bladder while decreasing the pressure within the bladder. Surgery is reserved for patients who are severely debilitated by their incontinence and who have an unstable bladder (severe inappropriate contraction) and poor ability to store urine. Augmentation cystoplasty is the most frequently performed surgical procedure for severe urge incontinence. In this reconstructive surgery, a segment of the bowel is added to the bladder to increase bladder size and allow the bladder to store more urine. Possible complications include those of any major abdominal surgery, including bowel obstruction, blood clots, infection, and pneumonia. There is a risk of developing urinary fistulae (abnormal tubelike passages that result in abnormal urine drainage), urinary tract infection, and difficulty urinating. Augmentation cystoplasty is also linked to a slightly increased risk of developing tumors. DIET Some experts recommend a regimen of controlled fluid intake in addition to other therapies in the management of urge incontinence. The goal of this program is to distribute the intake of fluids throughout the course of the day, so the bladder does not need to handle a large volume of urine at one time. Do not drink large quantities of fluids with meals -- limit your intake to less than 8 ounces at one time. Sip small amounts of fluids between meals. Stop drinking fluids approximately two hours before bedtime. Additionally, it may be helpful to eliminate your intake of foods that may irritate the bladder, such as caffeine, spicy foods, carbonated drinks, and highly acidic foods such as citrus fruits and juices. BLADDER RETRAINING Management of urge incontinence usually begins with a program of bladder retraining. Occasionally, electrical stimulation and biofeedback therapy may be used in conjunction with bladder retraining. A program of bladder retraining involves becoming aware of patterns of incontinence episodes and relearning skills necessary for storage and proper emptying of the bladder. Bladder retraining consists of developing a schedule of times when you should try to urinate, while trying to consciously delay urination between these times. One method is to force yourself to wait 1 to 1 1/2 hours between urinations, despite any leakage or urge to urinate in between these times. As you become skilled at waiting, gradually increase the time intervals by 1/2 hour until you are urinating every 3 to 4 hours. KEGEL EXERCISES Pelvic muscle training exercises called Kegel exercises are primarily used to treat people with stress incontinence. However, these exercises may also be beneficial in relieving the symptoms of urge incontinence. The principle behind Kegel exercises is to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor, thereby improving the urethral sphincter function. The success of Kegel exercises depends on proper technique and adherence to a regular exercise program. Another approach is to use vaginal cones to strengthen the muscles of pelvic floor. A vaginal cone is a weighted device that is inserted into the vagina. The woman contracts the pelvic floor muscles in an effort to hold the device the place. The contraction should be held for up to 15 minutes and should be performed twice daily. Within 4 to 6 weeks, about 70% of women trying this method had some improvement in their symptoms. BIOFEEDBACK AND ELECTRICAL STIMULATION For people who are unsure if they are performing Kegel exercises correctly, biofeedback and electrical stimulation may be used to help identify the correct muscle group to work. Biofeedback is a method of positive reinforcement in which electrodes are placed on the abdomen and the anal area. Some therapists place a sensor in the vagina (for women) or the anus (for men) to assess contraction of the pelvic floor muscles. A monitor will display a graph showing which muscles are contracting and which are at rest. The therapist can help identify the correct muscles for performing Kegel exercises. About 75% of people who use biofeedback to enhance performance of Kegel exercises report symptom improvement, with 15% considered cured. Electrical stimulation involves using low-voltage electric current to stimulate the correct group of muscles. The current may be delivered using an anal or vaginal probe. The electrical stimulation therapy may be performed in the clinic or at home. Treatment sessions usually last 20 minutes and may be performed every 1 to 4 days. Another form of electrical stimulation called sacral neuromodulation involves the placement of a "bladder pacemaker," which stimulates the bladder nerves. This device may provide excellent relief of symptoms for those who do not respond to other therapies. BOTOX An experimental therapy involves injecting botulinum toxin (Botox) into the bladder muscle to help stop the involuntary contracts that lead to urge incontinence. Early study results suggest this is a promising treatment option for those who do not respond to other therapies. ACTIVITY People with urge incontinence may find it helpful to avoid activities that irritate the urethra and bladder, such as taking bubble baths or using caustic soaps in the genital area. in your case say ur mind is pissed off in literary sense.....even i get those when exams are near...... its due to generally anxiety/ mind problems usually....... its not urge incontinence from what u just said..... see your counsellor/psychologist maybe Answered by Penny Haycock 5 months ago.

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 Shawana Matchette 5 months 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 Allyn Hamer 5 months ago.

Nausea Medicine Phenergan Answered by Rashida Sidle 5 months 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 Hans Bergren 5 months ago.

Anyone who knows anything about advance abacterial prostatitis treatment anywhere in the word?
Thank you very much for your time and help guys. Asked by Florencio Riemann 5 months ago.

Medical Care: Nonbacterial prostatitis may be bacterial, originating from infection with a fastidious organism. Therefore, a 2-week trial of an antibiotic such as trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (160 mg/800 mg), levofloxacin (250 mg qd), or ciprofloxacin (500 mg) twice daily for 2 weeks may help lead to the diagnosis. If the patient improves, continue therapy with a full 4- to 6-week course of treatment. Bladder neck dysfunction may be treated with alpha-blockers such as terazosin (2-15 mg) or doxazosin (2-8 mg) given in a dose titration. Flomax (0.4-0.8 mg), a more selective alpha-blocker with fewer adverse effects, may also be tried. Alpha-blocker therapy should be continued for a minimum of 6 months or symptoms may recur. Saw palmetto, an herbal supplement for BPH, has been used with some success. It is hypothesized to work similar to 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors. Finasteride, a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor, has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms. Cernilton, a pollen extract product, is thought to have anti-inflammatory activity. Cernilton can be taken 3 times daily for 6 months for symptom improvement. Reports of successful treatment are anecdotal. Quercetin, a flavonoid found in green tea, oranges, and onions has also been shown to reduce symptoms, hypothesized to be through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Painful symptoms may be treated with ibuprofen (600-800 mg tid). Irritative voiding symptoms of urgency and frequency may be treated with anticholinergics such as oxybutynin (5 mg bid/tid) or tolterodine (1-2 mg bid). Dysuria may be treated short term with Pyridium for 1-2 weeks (100-200 mg tid). Patients with significant pelvic floor tension may benefit from diazepam (5 mg tid), methocarbamol (1500 mg tid) or cyclobenzaprine (10 mg tid). Sitz baths may be helpful. Manual self-massage of the perianal area may also provide some relief from pelvic floor tension. Biofeedback has also shown to provide some relief from these symptoms, although reports are anecdotal. In an effort to include all possible therapies, note that some evidence suggests that symptoms may improve with the use of allopurinol; however, further studies are needed. Consider interstitial cystitis, which can be treated with a combination of anticholinergics and behavioral therapy, if a patient is refractory to other therapies. In addition, hydrodistension, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) cocktail instillation (DMSO at 50 mL, heparin at 5000 U, Solu-Medrol at 40 mg, gentamicin at 80 mg) or initiation of Elmiron oral therapy may be required. Refer to Interstitial Cystitis for more information. For a treatment algorithm, see Image 3 and Special Concerns. Surgical Care: If no other diagnosis is felt to be the cause of the patient's symptoms, perform videourodynamics, voiding cystourethrogram, and/or a cystoscopic evaluation to help determine if bladder neck dysfunction or urethral stricture is the cause. A stricture should be treated with either an open surgical repair or via direct visual internal urethrotomy. If no other cause for symptoms can be found, some patients have had improvement of prostatitis symptoms after transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT). TUMT has been successful in 70% of patients in one study. Some possible reasons for its success are that it may speed up the body's response to inflammation in the gland and promote fibrosis or it may damage the afferent nerve fibers that transmit pain. In addition, patients with tension floor myalgia have been shown to improve after rectal heat therapy. Therefore, the application of heat therapies to the prostate may transmit sufficient energy to also help treat pelvic floor tension. Other ablative procedures that destroy or remove prostate tissue can accomplish the same results for prostatic sources of pain, but these have not been studied in controlled trials. These include interstitial laser, radiofrequency ablation, and transurethral resection of the prostate. Treat carcinoma of the bladder using standard measures after tissue diagnosis has been made. In addition to the other previously mentioned therapies, patients with suspected tension floor myalgia may benefit from biofeedback therapy to help relax the pelvic floor muscles. Consultations: Patients who appear to be under significant job or family stress may benefit from consultation with a mental health provider. A PM&R specialist can help with the diagnosis of pelvic floor tension myalgia and potential therapies. Diet: Some foods thought to be irritants to the urinary tract include alcohol, cranberry juice/cranberries, lemon juice, carbonated drinks (especially colas), spicy foods (eg, hot chilies), coffee, acidic foods, and chocolate. Patients should be made aware of these potential irritants and told to limit them one at a time to see if their symptoms improve. The reported success of this is anecdotal, and it will not work for everyone. After being instructed to take note of their reactions to certain foods, some patients can identify the foods that cause more irritation to their urinary system. Activity: Avoiding specific activities will not improve symptoms. This author tells patients that relatively frequent ejaculation (ie, every 3 d) may help improve their symptoms. The rationale for this is that it allows for the natural drainage of secretions from the prostate. Some physicians have advocated frequent prostatic massage to promote prostatic drainage and improve symptoms. Frequent ejaculation allows the same drainage without repeated invasive and uncomfortable prostatic massages. Perianal self-massage may also offer some relief in conjunction with frequent ejaculation because this may relieve tension in the pelvic floor. The reported success is also anecdotal, but it is worth mentioning to patients with persistent symptoms. Answered by Trish Gelner 5 months ago.

in the uk there just started to throw money into research for prostatitis,there having great results with alpha_blockers. but thats slightly old news. other options being explored are surgery(removing the prostrate gland) Finasteride..a drug that shrinks the prostrate. Allopurinol.. a drug normally used for treating gout sitz baths...a bath that covers yr hips and bottom .. short term relief for symptoms rather than cure. the most exciting one i think is heat treatment using a microwave...they heat up yr prostrate(thru yr penis)this supposidly reduces inflammation(this option needs lots more research) only trouble is as with most prostrate treatments they all seem to have simular side effects, bleeding,incontinence and erection problems Answered by Karoline Heims 5 months ago.

No, even when people yawn I don't. I like to play a game with my friends where someone will yawn and we saw who yawns first. I never usually win unless I'm sick with a cold because I get so tired it's as if I stayed up a whole week with a wink of sleep. Answered by Wilmer Housekeeper 5 months ago.

toterodine is the generic drug name for detrol. It is not a steroid of any kind. It is called a mucigenic, it competes on nerve receptors to prevent bladder spasms. Your outbreak of acne is conincidental, not caused by the detrol at all. Answered by Kathryn Hamburger 5 months ago.
