Other choices: Neurontin, lyrica, (pregabalin) cymbalta, gralise, baclofen, perhaps topamax or lamotrigine. Consider a relatively non-invasive needle directed balloon foramenal decompression by a neurosurgeon.
Dr. David Rosenfeld
Pain Management 27 years experience
Treat the cause: If you are not tolerating the medication and have ongoing pain you need to have the nerve decompressed by a neurosurgeon.

Can pregnancy cause hypovolemic shock?

Dr. Pam Yoder
Specializes in Maternal-Fetal Medicine
Yes: Unfortunately conditions associated with excessive bleeding can lead to hypovolemic shock. Those include conditions that can occur in nonpregnant people, like trauma from an accident. They also include conditions in which there is inadequate blood clotting or profuse bleeding from a placental abnormality like placenta previa, from uterine atony, from surgery like cesarean hysterectomy or section.

Collapse: Sepsis occurs when the bacteria is able to reach the blood stream. Septic shock occurs when, as a result of sepsis, the blood pressure collapses and the cardiovascular system fails.

When in the heart cycle is the shock delivered during cardioversion?

Dr. Charles Jost

Sync or non-sync: It depends whether it is synchronous or asynchronos. Synchronous is when the shock is delivered on the qrs portion of the heart cycle - it is when the heart depolarises. Asynchronous cardioversion can occur anywhere on the heart cycle.

A 37-year-old member asked:

Is Trileptal approved by the fda to be a mood stabilizer?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Carla Enriquez
Pediatrics 50 years experience
Not yet: Trileptal is used as a mood stabilizer "off label" from fda approved uses. This doesn't mean it's not effective, it means the fda hasn't seen enough research to approve its use as a mood stabilizer. Many clinicians have seen benefits from Trileptal in stabilizing mood. Ultimately it's up to your doctor consulting with you to chose the best medication for your individual problem.
