Question: Hi,
My brother who is 26 years now is suffering from XXXXXXX Disease, now developing lack of concentration, lil violent behavior, anxiety, self talking in alone. I am consulting with doctors of neurology and psychiatry. Currently Axepta 10 mg is running twice a day for behavior control and concentration, with no hope from doctors for cure. I am reading multiple studies on internet since two years, where little hope is identified in ayurveda, by usage on ashwagandha as it regenerates dead protein cells, which reverse the HD process. Can we give Ashwagandha with Axepta 10 mg. I have asked with the concerned doctors, but they dont have time to respond, please suggest and guide, we are really tense

Brief Answer:
You can give Ashwagandha with Axepta.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your brother's symptoms and his diagnosis.

Ashwagandha can be safely given with Axepta (Atomoxetine).

As you have rightly pointed out, there is no cure for this genetic disease in Allopathy branch. If there is some hope in Ayurveda for Huntington's disease, then, we can might as well try it.

Please keep me informed about his progress.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.

I have been a little sick. Today I tried to get ready for work in the dark. Power outtage. I teach kindergarten and have been under serious stress. When I got to my car, I had faster heart palpitations. That has been an hour ago. I have panic attack disorder, so I took one of the klonopin and went to bed. It still felt fast after the hour, but not as fast. I took my pulse for 15 seconds on my neck. It was 27, so I think it was 108 for the minute. I am 58, 5'3" and my blood pressure is always low. I have a heart valve that backflows into the ventrical when blood is pumped to the main artery, diagnosed about 4 years ago and had the dye procedure that showed that all of my arteries are clear, at that time. My cholestorol is usually borderline and a little above at times. I do not eat much salt and I usually do not eat that much: cereal, fruits, vegetables, occasional meat, but I do love ice cream and have it a few times a week lately. I did feel weak from the cold I have been fighting. I also took some antiviral drugs for I feared that I was going to have a herpes outbreak. I did not. I take trazadone for night terrors, paxil for depression and strattera for ADHD also. I just took my pulse again. It is still 108.

Hello. I am a 19 yr old female. For the past month, I have had little to no appetite , and when I do eat I have diarrhea immediately afterwards. I sometimes notice red blood on my stool and in the water but not always. Some medical history, I have had my gallbladder removed a year ago, and am currently on a few medications: Lamictol, Abilify, Concerta , and Strattera . I have lost approximently twenty pounds in the last month ( though that may possibly from the concerta). I would just like to be able to enjoy a meal without becoming sick afterwards.
