Friend taking Effexor (venlafaxine) for 3 days. Has had mild side effects such as dry mouth, no appetite, headache and insomnia. Now has kyphosis. PERRLA absent. ?

Kyphosis?: Kyphosis cannot come on quickly - it is an abnormal curvature of the upper spine. Are both of his pupils unequal, abnormally shaped and unreactive to light and accomodation? If so, then there is a serious problem and he should be evaluated. The other side effects described are common for effexor (venlafaxine) and will usually subside after 4-6 weeks. ...Read more

I've been dealing with fatigue for years but recently I've been having an issue with sweating excessively. It's only warm outside and I'm sweating.

I've been dealing with fatigue for years but recently I've been having an issue with sweating excessively. It's only warm outside and I'm sweating.

Excessive sweating: Excessive sweating and/or heat intolerance can be caused by fevers,overactive thyroid or estrogen deficiency but can also be seen in chronic anxiety especially if associated with cold hands. Occasionally Tylenol (acetaminophen) or aspirin can generate sweating. Your physician will take a thorough history,perform a physical examination and order appropriate tests to evaluate you in view of chronic fatigue too ...Read more

Are ptsd and chronic pain associated with each other? I've been dx'd with ptsd since childhood & it seems both ptsd & c.P. Are suddenly "flaring up"

Are ptsd and chronic pain associated with each other? I've been dx'd with ptsd since childhood & it seems both ptsd & c.P. Are suddenly "flaring up"

In short, yes: Ptsd doesn't involve only emotions and thinking; it involves your whole being. It can produce or aggravate physical symptoms. When traumatic issues are triggered, all kinds of symptoms can show up -- including chronic pain if that's one of the ways your system communicates. I hope you're engaged in ongoing psychotherapy, because this is the bedrock of helpful treatment. Emdr can be helpful. ...Read more

Could prolonged use of vikodin Ultram skelaxin and aleeve cause profuse sweating my husband has chronic pain and arthritis and has been taking these meds for 3-5 years. He is having episodes of sweating even at rest- could this be a sign of other symptom

Could prolonged use of vikodin Ultram skelaxin and aleeve cause profuse sweating my husband has chronic pain and arthritis and has been taking these meds for 3-5 years.  He is having episodes of sweating even at rest- could this be a sign of other symptom

Yes: Opioids in particular (but not Naproxen or skelaxin) can cause increased sweating as a side effect. In addition, if a person is taking a significant enough dose for long enough, and then reduces or stops the opiate, sweating becomes even more intense as a sign of withdrawal. If the sweating is mostly at night, there is concern forunderlying infection. He needs to discuss with his doctor. ...Read more

My sister gets sweaty palms. Has not been diagnosed any anxiety but has been diagnosed migraines. No other anxiety/panic symptom.

May be hyperhidrosis: Sweaty palms can be due to a condition called hyperhidrosis, which can occur in otherwise healthy people. About 2-3% of population suffer from excessive sweating of palms, feet, or underarms. Have your sister ask her doctor which treatment may be best for her.

My friend has short term amnesia, headache, nausea, aggression, and has been in bed all day. Should I be concerned?

My friend has short term amnesia, headache, nausea, aggression, and has been in bed all day. Should I be concerned?

Being concerned: Hi V, Yes, I would be concerned. First, I would try to talk your friend into a visit with his PCP (or urgent care/ER if necessary). Not "finger shaking" at him but because you are concerned and you care about him. This could either be a medical/neurological condition or perhaps significant depression. Or both. Does he have a history of being depressed? Memory issues? Aggression? Yes, be concerned ...Read more

I have seizures, they had stopped. Haven't been on any anti-convulsants. Lately, I've been very restless in my sleep, slight auras, with a headache throughout the day, poor concentration & periodic confusion. Could this be a relapse? No Dr. currently

I have seizures, they had stopped. Haven't been on any anti-convulsants. Lately, I've been very restless in my sleep, slight auras, with a headache throughout the day, poor concentration & periodic confusion. Could this be a relapse? No Dr. currently

See a physician soon: What you are describing is quite possibly seizures and post-seizure experiences ("ictal" and "post-ictal" events) of which you are unaware. A neurologist can go over these events as well as understand better your past medical/seizure history and correlate whether there are requirements for additional testing, and therapeutic intervention if appropriate. ...Read more

Sudden loss of appetite. No other symptoms. Anxiety/depression has been under control for 3 years with 10mg Prozac (fluoxetine) rx. Could it be a new side effect?

Sudden loss of appetite. No other symptoms. Anxiety/depression has been under control for 3 years with 10mg Prozac (fluoxetine) rx. Could it be a new side effect?

Not likely: Nothing is impossible w/ side effects for psychotropics, but not likely. However, you might be ready to try to taper off Prozac (fluoxetine). I hate the idea of forever for a drug like that. If you've not done some therapy, you might want to try a bit to feel secure as you get off the meds. Best! ...Read more

I'm a 20-plus year opiate addict who has had problems with PTSD and depressive anxiety. I have tried all sorts of medications antidepressants and mild?

Opiate addiction: You mention that you are dependent of opiates. It might be a good to consider treatment for the opiate dependency. I am not trying to dodge your question. Opiate use is likely contributing to the anxiety and depression. It would be difficult to effectively treat these other conditions while you continuing to use opiates. Likely you know some of the options for treating opiate dependency. ...Read more

Have been diagnosed with GAD and Major Depression, been doing well but had affair with married man, now symptoms are back. Is this as result of affair?

Affairs with people: who cannot be there for you in a real ongoing relationship, are stressful and depressing, so yes, they may have re-triggered your symptoms. Listen to the sone "Soon" (Sung by Reba McEntire) and find a way to take back your life. Psychotherapy may be needed in addition to the simple 3 minute music therapy relayed in that great country song. ...Read more
