Over The Counter Treatment For Narcolepsy
Some: Narcolepsy is an issue with a brain chemical that controls degree of wakefulness and control on timing of wakefulness. So herbs (caffeine and noncaffeine) products that work through a different system (often adenosine) can be helpful t keep awake during day. Also behavior for short napping helps. Food metabolism also affects, specifically gluten has been.
What are the key symptoms of narcolepsy and his most common social/work related consequences in an adult without treatment?
Daytime drowsiness &: Falling asleep during the day. See http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0001805/ for causes, diagnostic procedures & treatments. Having a bmi of 30 or above, in the " obese" range, markedly increases risk of sleep apnea, but can be genetic. Other sleep disorders & seizure disorders are included in the list of causes. The impacts include decreased work performance & increased auto accidents.
Was lobotomy ever done as a treatment for Narcolepsy? I was born in 1995 in PA. Diagnosed when I was 5-7. Concerned about if I ever had it done to me.
Would not worry: Yes, Lobotomies were frequent in the early to mid 19th century for a range of conditions that included narcolepsy - these procedures largely went away around the early 1960s in the United States. As a result, it is not likely that you were exposed to this procedure having been born in 1995 and diagnosed around 2000.
What is the best treatment to get all the right amount of sleep cycles at night for person with narcolepsy? I feel like I am stuck dreaming too.
Lifestyle changes: Amphetamines and similar medicines can be very helpful short term. Long term there is no substitute for a lot of hard work with a sleep specialist to re-examine all aspects of your daily life...diet, exercise, mental health, work...and try to better allign your natural physiological processes. Starting with an academic based center specializing in sleep issues is a good idea.

No - See a Doctor: No, you need Flagel Pills for the most effective treatment. See your Doctor or the Health Department - you should have a full STD screening if you have been exposed to any STD.
PSORIASIS: Over the counter rx are: emolients, salicylic acid, coal tar ointments, solution or shampoos.
No such animal.: Unless you have very, very mild psoriasis - which might respond to Hydrocortisone cream - nothing available over the counter in the us is going to make much of a dent in your psoriasis. Sorry, but I've been doing this for 30 years and have yet to see an otc product work, other than skin cap, which turned out to have an illegal steroid in it. See a dermatologist; don't waste money on otc treatments.

Not recommended: I personally would not recommend otc treatment for this condition. See an ent.See 1 more doctor answer
No, don't skip meds: Addison's disease is serious; represents adrenal failure (lack of glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids & sex hormones.) without these important hormones you have trouble with glucose metabolism, stress, severe fatigue, sodium & potassium balance, immune response, sexual development, sex drive. It's important to know why the adrenals are not functioning. Meds are prescription & taken for life.See 2 more doctor answers
Maybe: While controversial, some parents swear that their child with some form of pervasive developmental disorder, respond favorable to dmg, or di-methyl glycine, which is over the counter at health food stores.See 1 more doctor answer
Cortisone creams: Options are very limited. Cortisone creams can help but if the disease is more than very mild you should see a dermatologist.
No good one: You're best option is to lose weight and avoid foods that are high in fat content. No dairy, nothing fried. If you still have symptoms, you may actually be beyond salvage and will only be remedied with surgery.
