Can lutein or zeaxanthin cause side effects such as insomnia, tiredness, dizziness, or constiipation? I want to take it to improve my vision.

Can lutein or zeaxanthin cause side effects such as insomnia, tiredness, dizziness, or constiipation? I want to take it to improve my vision.

No, however...: Lutein and Zeaxanthin are carotenoids naturally found in fruits and vegetables and do not have any side effects, but they may be in capsules that have additives or preservatives some may react to, so I advise companies like Pure Encapsulations and Thorne that don't use those. Many other nutrients are good for eyes such as Vit. A, C, D, E, zinc, selenium and EFA's. See http://tinyurl. Com/b56ua4 ...Read more

Dizziness, lightheadedness, headache, eyes twich acasionally cause me to loose focus, mind insomnia, fatigue...What could be causing this?

Anxiety: Dizziness can be difficult to evaluate, vertigo is where to room is spinning, being light headed is different and usually transient. Some medical issues include anemia or thyroid problems. If you are not sleeping and having anxiety, everything is worse; do you clinch your teeth at night? If so its bruxism; panic attacks?

What causes chronic diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, insomnia, fainting, Full bowel movement in sleep, headaches, eye pain?

Viral syndrome: Other than the "full bowel movement in sleep" what you are describing is consistent with viral syndrome which requires rest and hydration and should not last more than 5 days. Avoid dehydration as you are losing water and it will make symptoms worse. Make sure you eat and keep activity and environmental exposure to a minimum until you recover. Let your doctor know what is going on. ...Read more

Causes of bowel movement, vomiting while totally asleep, fatigue, dizziness, loss of balance, numbness, tingling, migraine, eye pain/pressure, insomnia?

Most important thing: Bowel (and likely bladder incontinence) & emesis during sleep is concerning. I think this needs to be looked at immediately. The most important thing to rule out is some type of nocturnal epileptic condition. Other symptoms you mention are consistent with what people can feel following an episode (post ictal phase). I recommend you get an ASAP appt. With neurology. Start documenting things. ...Read more

Will an inner ear infection cause dizziness sleeplessness some confusion plus overloaded at work stress and feeling anxiety. What should I do?

2 problems: It sounds like you could have at least 2 separate problems, one of which magnifies the other. Inner ear infections can cause dizziness, & anxiety can produce dizziness too. Work stress and feeling overloaded may increase anxiety as well. Your family doctor can surely treat your ear infection, but a psychiatrist and/or psychologist can provide more focused evaluation & treatment of anxiety. ...Read more

Straterra is causing insomnia if taken at night and dizziness and lethargy if taken during the day. Tried 25 and 40mg (1 week each). Do I wait it out?

Strattera (atomoxetine): Dose may be too high. Without knowing details, you may want to go as low as 10 mg capsule, trying in the morning on a day you're home if any dizziness. Start low and go slow may be best way for you. If you had any dizziness prior to med, this needs to be checked. Please discuss with your prescribing doctor. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I am taking atarax (hydroxyzine) 25mg got my GAD and insomnia. I may develop tolerance after 2 times. Will resting for few days restore back the dizziness effects?

Probably: Tolerance might not develop that quickly, and reversing it by abstaining can be achieved in theory, but would take longer than few days, probably weeks, you can alternate between medicines though so tolerance won't develop fast, but ask your doctor first, good luck ...Read more

I took Seroquel 50 mg for a few months last year for insomnia. Started swelling stopped it. Taking it again along w ambien 10 mg. Been off and on ambien for long time. Now I am havingside effects of bad dizziness w combo after being on for two weeks?

Seroquel (quetiapine): Seroquel can take some time to get used to. It is very sedating and if you combine it with ambien (zolpidem) I am not surprised that you are getting dizzy. Talk to your doctor about dose adjustments and maybe hold off the ambien (zolpidem). ...Read more

Bad side effects on atenolol been on it two months 12.Mg. Can I just stop taking it? Dizzy, heart palps, insomnia, digestion issues. For tachycardia.

Don't stop cold: But you can stop. Talk with the prescribing doctor if possible for guidance. Or, cut it by half for a week, then skip days or just go off it. The main worry would be rapid heart rate, but your dose is low and tapering should be okay. Best to have medical awareness though. Good luck. ...Read more

Metronidazole (diverticulitis) for 4days 3x400mg. No alcohol, no other drugs. I have bad anxiety, insomnia, sweating, dizziness, thirst. Very worried.

Drink lots of water,: Drink lots of water, walk if you can and take your temperature daily. You are likely breaking the fever as the infection gets under control. Most cases of uncomplicated diverticulitis resolve with antibiotics, but you should see a GI doctor or a surgeon for a workup once the attack is better. A colonoscopy in 6 weeks is usually done to screen for colon tumors once you are feeling better. ...Read more

Autoimmune disease: Your problems may or may not be related to one another. You could simply have hyperhidrosis, a condition where the hands and feet sweat excessively. This could, however, be connected to your other problems. Autoimmune disease, diseases in which the body makes antibodies against itself, can have multi system and location pains/problems/symptoms. You should see a primary or rheuamatologist ...Read more
