Puedo dejar de tomar alprazolam esta noche y comenzar manana con clonazepan? Podria tener efectos secundarios?

Dose Dependent: Switching to a long-acting benzodiazepine like Clonazepam from an ultra-short acting benzo like Alprazolam is common-place. You usually will not have withdrawal effects (depending on the initial dosage of alprazolam), but it may take a bit longer to fall asleep with the clonazepam. However, the Clonazepam will last longer and stay in your system during the entire night. ...Read more

Taking 300 wellbutrin, 30 cymbalta (duloxetine) just added  yesterday headache, dumpy, fast heart rate, feel buzzed, pupils slightly more dilated will this subside?

Often: Adding a new psychotropic (a drug that works on the brain) may cause symptoms such as you described. Sometimes they will subside over time. If not, you have choices: discontinue the new medication. Lower the dose of the new medicine and increase very slowly (start low and go slow). Decrease the dose of both medications and if needed increase them slowly. Consult a pharmacy and your doctor. ...Read more

Ditiazem: This antihypertensive has multiple side-effects, and if they are as severe as you indicate your doctor should consider using other methods of controlling your bp. Continuing this, assuming your symptoms are due to it, makes no sense unless there are no alternatives. ...Read more

21w2d pregnant ate cold cooked chicken @ 20w5d & deli turkey was cold on 1st bite but asked to reheat feeling constant braxton hicks. Listeria?

Listeriosis: One can have asymptomatic listerial infection that will affect the fetus. Usda's fsis and the fda tell pregnant women not to eat luncheon or deli meats unless reheated until steaming hot, and to avoid fluid from packages of other foods, utensils, and food preparation sites. This does not mean that you will get it but listeria can cause premature delivery, miscarriage, stillbirths, etc. ...Read more

Typhoid: A single widal test in an unvaccinated patient showing h and/or o titres greater than or equal to 1:160 and typhoid-like symptoms is strongly suggestive of typhoid fever. It also appears that h titre is more useful than o titre. More false positives are found than false negatives. Under these circumstances, the clinical picture is the decisive factor in making a diagnosis of typhoid. ...Read more

69-y Parkinson male. Took(Piribedil Sustained-release Tablets;Levodopa and Benserazide )for 9 yrs.Recently drug-resistant(cant lift legs),suggestions?

Please repost: Your dad maybe? Piribedil & bensazeride are not available in the US. Where does 69 live? In US or abroad? If he lives here, will he continue to make his US neurologist's life more diffcult by insisting on using foreign drugs? If he lives abroad, getting advice from a US neurologist is pointless if the US & foreign drugs aren't the same. You need to clarify. ...Read more

How slow?: The timolol eye drops can slow your heart, but it shouldn't be under 50 while at rest. Count your pulse. You've just had surgery - you're on a bunch of meds. Give yourself a break. Rest. Take it easy! ...Read more
