Brief Answer:
Side effect of drugs.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query,
As per your history you are on a number of drugs,Loss in appetite and nausea can be side effect of most the drugs you are on.
Dizziness,Fatigue nausea is the most common side effect of Gabapentin and most of the drugs used in treatment of bipolar disorder.
Tyelenol is a very week anti inflammatory if arthritic pain is more you can take tramadol in combination with paracetamol for few days.
Overall to improve your appetite i would suggest you to take some overcounter Probiotic for few weeks,Probiotic will help you in digestion,As most of the medicines you are on are toxic to liver you can aslo take a potent liver tonic like sylimarin,This will help you to increase your appetite.
Apart from medicines-
Eat lot of fruits and fresh vegetable.
Try to take lots of curd and yoghurt in food.
Eat home made food.
Avoid oily and spicy foods.

Thank you!

Im a 39 yo female with migraine headaches that started 1 year ago yesterday. I also developed horner s syndrome with left eyelid drooping, left pupil smaller than right, no sweating on the left side of my face and the left side of my face does not turn red when the rest of my face does. I had multiple scans done to rule out all life threatening causes of the Horner s syndrome. One of my doctors also recommended I have a mammogram. I was then diagnosed with DCIS of the left breast and underwent a mastectomy which was 100% curative. My head/neck pain persists. I m currently taking gabapentin and verapamil to control the pain on a daily basis. Occasionally that is not enough and I have to take maxalt or norco. Occasionally there isn t anything I can do at home and I go to the ED. Any thoughts?

I am taking the following drugs and am experiencing exercise induced asthma. Female age 68. Beginning and very mild COPD. Lisonopril/hctz, Gabapentin, 100 mg, Glimepiride (diabetic), Sertraline HCL, 50 mg, Pantoprazole, 20 mg, Biotin, Magnesium Gluconate, Stool Softener, D3, low dose aspirine, Metformin HCL 500, Rescue inhaler which doesn t seem to help, Singulair and am supposed to use bipap with ASV but the ASV portion seems to wake me up. Is the combination of these drugs giving me breathing problems? Also, when I did the sleep studies, I took Ambien. Can that cause the study to be inaccurate?
