Hello, Dr.Cardiologist!
Can you compare use of two drugs of Sotalol and –°ardiozem? In case the patient of 73 years has an arrhythmia and tachycardia? My new doctor cardiologist replaced sotalol with cardiozem.
But I do not feel good - tachicardia increased. I did take Sotalol 80 mg / 2 times a day 10 years long.
Thank you.

hello...I am extremely concerned about the long term and short term adverse effect of taking geodon with the opiate Percocet. I have bee taking Geodon for over 5 years and also am prescribed 40 mg of Percocet. I know it can have an effect on my liver and kidneys, but have been on Percocet for 10 years at 40 mg per day. I am also finding that the opiates are at times not providing the relief that they used to, so unfortunately, I am supplementing my opiate dose with one or two extra percocet. I do have a legimate need for the Percocet, but am concerned that they are becoming less effective as the years have gone by. Can you tell me if there are any new treatment modalities that I could possibly explore. Should I investigate a pain management center, or would it be a good idea for my prescribing physician to seek other means to handle my dependency. Also, are there any adverse effects with the interaction of these opiates and Geodon. I am not against trying another method to control my pain, but after 10 years of Percocet, I often find that I am making excuses to not get off the Percocet. Could I go through a hospital managed detox safely, and find some other alternative that would help me. I am honest in admitting that I argue with my doctor about losing my percocet rx. and have made excuses to stay on them,,,after ten years, I have quite a relationship with them, and it hard to even consider any other alternatives. Shouldn t my doctor offer some other treatment modality? but I can t seem to not fight with her when , in the past she has mentioned other meds. I am a mess and I find that I tend to hoard a few each month in case I run out before my next script is due. I need some advice, please. Does the opiate affect the treatment process of the Geodon Thank you for any advice and direction you can offer. Thank you..I am seeking an independent professional that might see things from a clinical and professional view. I don t have money to pay sorry

I know of someone who had two major surgeries as a child and two major surgeries as an adult. Could this contribute as an onset to drug/cocaine addiction? As the person got older, it was revealed that one of the child s parents had a history of drug addiction but was not actively using at this child s conception. Could these factors be a contributing factor for the person s drug addiction? What places a person to become or potentially be at risk to becoming a drug addict?
