Is Gabapentin (neurotin) effective on tic and appropriate for long term therapy? Could it cause mental confusion?

Better question!: You've got a better question this time about gabapentin and tic disorders. When you say "Tic" do you mean Tic doloreaux, do you mean Tic disorder such as Tourette's Syndrome, or something else? If you're talking about the former then, gabapentin in not all that effective for most people. It's even worse for Tourette's. Gabapentin can cause some people to become very confused...others not so much ...Read more

Does hormone therapy for prostate cancer cause mental confusion?

Does hormone therapy for prostate cancer cause mental confusion?

Generally - No: Hormone blockade (hb) can cause many problems but they tend to be time related. The longer on hb the more the problems. Hb often makes pre-existing problem worse or accelerates some problems. Hb itself rarely causes "confusion", more often it can cause depression, fatigue, and emotional changes. Only older men on hb for a very long time tend to have true cognitive dysfunction. ...Read more

Can hormone therapy for males suffering prostate cancer cause mental confusion?

This was fixed by stopping the hormone blockers. ...Read more

A week ago i took 3500mg of zoloft, (sertraline) and didn't seek treatment. I still have dizziness, skin tingling, confusion, sore muscles. Damage?

Get treatment: If that's not a typo, the fact that you took an overdose indicates that something is seriously wrong. The fact that you didn't immediately seek medical attention also indicates that something is very wrong. If it was a suicide attempt, you need to be under the care of a mental health professional now. If you haven't already, see a psychologist or psychiatrist and get treatment. ...Read more

If I told my doctor that I'm having a feeling of anxiety and confusion with Concerta will he stop the treatment or try another type like adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?

If I told my doctor that I'm having a feeling of anxiety and confusion with Concerta will he stop the treatment or try another type like adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)?

Only he knows that: Definitely do tell him - those are not okay side effects to suffer. The next step is one that you and he need to discuss together w/ answers to all your questions and planning for possibilities in advance. If you really need a medication, I expect it will be offered. Then you decide if you want to try it. Best! ...Read more

Please can I have info on cervical erosion. I never got any kind if treatment when i was told I have it. Confused? Is there a way to heal it on my own

Outdated term: In the us, this term isn't used, as it doesn't have a specific definition or cause.In other parts of the world, it's been used to describe a red appearance of the cervix, which may be caused by infection, stds, or may be normal.See a gyno now, and ask if there's any abnormal appearance, and get tested for stds if needed. Then use condoms in the future if you may be at risk for stds. ...Read more

Please tell me is there any cure or treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma and please guide me i am confused about it?

Please tell me is there any cure or treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma and please guide me i  am confused about it?

Depends: Depends on how advanced it is, my friend. Early hcc may be treated successfully, maybe even cured, with surgery but therapy for more advanced ones is directed mostly to shrink and control the cancer rather than curing it. It also depends on how healthy the patient is in general. Idealy should be managed in a multidisciplinary setting (surgeons, transplant specialists, gi, and medical oncologist). ...Read more
