28 yr-old with 8 yrs of autonomic, endocrinologic, and inflammatory symptoms, which have both a daily pattern and a seasonal pattern.....?

Psychologial Tx of physical problems: Andrew, your symptoms indicate the strong possibility of being the consequence of conditioning from earlier life experiences. I say this because of their cyclic nature, the act hat the symptoms are physical does not preclude the cause being psychological.

I urge you to visit www. Stii. Us for expanded information on this possibility. Treatment by Subliminal Therapy is my first recommendation with Hypnotic methods being second (www. Asch. Net for a referral for hypnosis).

Medications can mask symptoms but do not address the problem itself. When you resolve the cause of a problem, you eliminate its symptoms.

Best wishes, Dr. Yager ...Read more

After taking drugs like ecstasy 2 pills per month. How long does it take for your serotonin and dopamine to come back to normal?

Impossible to say: MDMA has shown some evidence of permanent damage to the dopamine system. It can take months to a year for temporary drug damage to heal in the brain. Also, multible drugs besides MDMA are currently being sold as ecstasy because of the high demand for MDMA, So impossible to more accurately answer your question. ...Read more

Can dopamine agonists like add drugs and levadopa cause problems?

Can dopamine agonists like add drugs and levadopa cause problems?

Yes: All medications can have side effects or complications. This must be weighed against the risk of not treating. Dopamine agonists can cause insomnia, tolerance, hallucinations and agitation. Ldopa used for RLS is usually at a low dose with minimal risk but for parkinsons the above complications should be looked for. Adhd medications have potential for abuse in patients who don't have true adhd. ...Read more

Can you tell me about nursing management of weaning off drugs such as dopamine and amiodarone?

Weaning: Dopamine is an acute hemodynamic IV drug which usually is removed by titrating the dose rate down by 50% monitoring for a few hours and then cutting down another 50% until minimal dose rate is present and the dose is stopped. Amiodarone has such a long half time that we don't wean it. We stop the amiodarone and its long half time takes care of the amio weaning, in general. ...Read more

My husband has Parkinson's and is wondering can certain foods and over-the-counter medicine water down the dopamine he is taking?

My husband has Parkinson's and is wondering can certain foods and over-the-counter medicine water down the dopamine he is taking?

GREAT QUESTION: I am always amazed at even the number of colleagues who do not educate their patients on this very very important point. YES....there is a huge relationship between the PROTEIN CONTENT of a meal and the absorption of carbidopa/levodopa. If a meal has more than 30% of its caloric content in the form of protein then, this will significantly hinder absorption in the gut of Sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa). Therefore, ..... ...Read more

Does dopamite (dopamine supplement) increase more dopamine level or prescribed medicine like biperiden (dopamine reuptake inhibitor) does?

I'm curious: Why do you believe you need to take medication that claims to affect dopamine, especially OTC remedy which will NOT cross the brain-blood barrier? If you are depressed, you could see a psychiatrist, and if you have Parkinson's disease, a neurologist. ...Read more

Is wellbutrin (bupropion) a dopamine agonist drug?

Is wellbutrin (bupropion) a dopamine agonist drug?

Mostly: Wellbutrin (bupropion) interferes with reuptake of dopamine&norepinephrine (noradrenaline)in the central nervous system, thereby leaving these neurotransmitters to sit longer&stronger in the synapse between communicating brain cells, which enhances dopamine&adrenaline activity at the cellular level. That can treat depression, feed pleasure to help sex&bypass tobacco, improve adhd&cognition, lower weight, etc. ...Read more

Does glutamine pouder affect my pituitary gland tumore or prolactine level or dopamine medicine?

Does glutamine pouder affect my pituitary gland tumore or prolactine level or dopamine medicine?

Do not think so: Eating glutamine powder would probably not affect your prolactin level, but it may affect absorption of your dopamine medication if you take it at the same time. If you use the powder, do not take it at the same time as the dopamine medicine, wait 30 minutes at least. ...Read more

I'm on lexapro ivega and abilify I understand 2 of these medicines are similar, I also know they're ssris (at least I've been told). ...dopamine is safe to raise? Uptake inhibitors work for a reason so I have to ask

I'm on lexapro ivega and abilify I understand 2 of these medicines are similar, I also know they're ssris (at least I've been told). ...dopamine is safe to raise? Uptake inhibitors work for a reason so I have to ask

Different mechanisms: Abilify and Invega both blocks 5HT2A (one of the serotonin receptors) and D2 (one of the dopamine receptors). These two medications actually decrease the actions of dopamine in the brain. Lexapro is an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) which modulates/regulates serotonin transmission in certain brain pathways. None of these drugs increase dopamine. ...Read more

Did geodon (ziprasidone) damage my histamine and dopamine receptors? I am taking no psych drugs and do not feel great. Only way to sleep is one Benadryl or 0 rest

Did geodon (ziprasidone) damage my histamine and dopamine receptors? I am taking no psych drugs and do not feel great. Only way to sleep is one Benadryl or 0 rest

No: Geodon (ziprasidone) does not damage histamine or Dopamine receptors nor any other receptors in the central nervous system that we are aware of. I do not know why you were on Geodon (ziprasidone) in the first place, but if you're not feeling well I would recommend that you go back to your physician. It is possible to develop insomnia secondary to your primary psychiatric illness which then continues even if the primary psychiatric illness comes under control. This is called insomnia secondary to a mental disorder. You may get relief from your insomnia with melatonin which is over-the-counter. It is generally taken two hours before the desired time to fall asleep. ...Read more
