Akineton Allergy In Children
Akinetin allergy: Allergic to itGet a more detailed answer ›
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
Stop taking haldol (haloperidol) 5 mg a day after a month an half of taking it and continuing taking akineton 2mg at day can avoid the withdrawal effects of haldol (haloperidol)?
Akathesia: Alathesia can be a b****, that's for sure. Have you tried Cogentin or artane? Sometimes, diffetent ones work better. I will go as high as 2mgs three times/day of Cogentin (benztropine), if needed. Of course, benztropine has side effects too. A little benedryl can help. I don't love inderal- too sedating, but low dose nadalol can be helpful. Check with your dr, no matter what. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Haldol (haloperidol) is an antipsychotic that can cause extrapyramidal symptoms. These symptoms can be Parkinson's like (tremor, shuffling walk), dystonic (sustained contractions of muscle groups, some cause abnormal posture) or akathisia (feeling of restlessness). Akineton is a medication that helps treat the above side effects that can occur with Haldol (haloperidol) and other antipsychotic medications. ...Read more
Dopamine caused muscle stiffnes and inability to move.Took abilify (aripiprazole) and akineton and was getting worse,when stopped them I started to move easier. Why?
DA is busy in brain: I assume you meant L-dopa not dopamine? Abilify (aripiprazole) blocks dopamine receptors but also activates dopamine receptors. So depending on where it acts in the brain and relative dopamine level the effect can be variable. Movement control is a balance between the activity of dopamine and acetylcholine. Drugs that block or increase activity of either one can cause movement issues. Talk to your doctor(s) ...Read more
Taking dopamine caused me muscle rigidity and an inability to move.Then took abilify (aripiprazole) and akineton and was getting worse. Stoped them and walked better?
That's a good -: -statement that is followed by a question mark. That in and of itself does not make it a question. ...Read more
Exposure + Genes: One needs both a genetic component and "exposure" to a said allergen to develop an allergy. There is a growing support over the past 20 years, that growing up in an environment which is "too clean" can also lead to development of allergies down the road. Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Allergy tests: There are several types of testing. Some involve certain types of blood tests. Another method is to do a series of skin tests done by pricking the skin and applying different allergens. Other tests are provocative tests that can involve challanging the patient with allergic materials. Testing should be done by doctors specializing in allergy to obtain the best results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Skin & blood tests: Prick testing with allergenic extracts or fresh foods can help confirm allergy, as can blood tests for specific ige antibodies (rast-type tests). However, both types of testing can produce false positive results, and confirmation with food challenges may be needed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can I as a 46 year old, take children's Benadryl. It's all I have in the house and my allergies are terrible.
Where can I find a statistic for the number of children who died from allergies causing anaphylaxis in the u.S.?
Only overall numbers: The incidence of anaphylaxis in children is unknown. Estimates of anaphylactic deaths (from drugs, foods, insect stings, and latex) in the us are 0.002 percent annually (2 per 100, 000): 500 fatalities from penicillin anaphylaxis; 40 fatalities from bee stings; 125-150 from food anaphylaxis. ...Read more
