I've Menièrés, bipolar, ADHD & migraine. Could Topiramate treat these conditions better than Metoprolol combined with hydrochlorothiazide?

I've Menièrés, bipolar, ADHD & migraine. 
Could Topiramate treat these conditions better than Metoprolol combined with hydrochlorothiazide?

No way to tell: Neither the topiramate nor the combo you mentioned are considered the Gold Standard drug to treat ALL 4 of the conditions at the same time. Therefore, on that basis I wouldn't expect EITHER regimen to be terrific. Having said that...each individual is different. If your doctor is recommending one of those options then, I would trust his judgement, take the medication as directed and see wassup. ...Read more

Have epipidymitis and a hydrocele as a result of a varicocele repair. I'm taking antibiotics. Can i treat the hydrocele with ibuprofen or other med?

Have epipidymitis and a hydrocele as a result of a varicocele repair. I'm taking antibiotics. Can i treat the hydrocele with ibuprofen or other med?

But post-varicocelectomy epididymitis and hydrocele may not pose a significant negative impact to your life; then, it's probably worthwhile just to watch and see. But for the ramifying issues after varicocele surgery should be addressed in collaboration with your surgeon and at times seek a second opinion. Best wish... ...Read more
