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

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.

Here are some ...: Why did you have scrotal scan? For pain or something else? All the findings as described couldn't be clinically significant at all & require no intervention, at least for the time being, for the sake of your best interest and fertility if you can reasonably cope with potential mental & physical uneasiness. Why? Before acting, one has to consider the balance between medical necessity & possibility. ...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?
