In 2010 I was prescribed Vicodin .5/500 recently having been changed to .5/325. I have been taking clonazepam since approximately 2011 following the doctor having prescribed savella for fybromylagia. Had a reaction to savella causing breathing difficulties mixed with anxiety and tremors. My initial dose was .25 two times a day. In 2014 the doctor increased my dose to .5 two times a day. I would divide the dose into 4 quarters. Over time, noticed I was having to increase. Begin having to take 1/2 of the .5 mg. I am in day 4 of not having taken any of the Vicodin and Clonazepam. Stopped both all-together. I ve been laid off, have no insurance, no money. Besides that, I am a spiritual person and do not want to be dependent on anything. I am believing, by faith, in Christ Jesus that I am delivered from these medications. I am having the following symptoms, what are they and please, how do I get them to stop and go away? mental fog, occasional shaking especially when trying to type, heart palpitations, body pain, heart pressure, dizziness. Diarhea started yesterday. Occasional nausea. The thing that concerns me the most is the feeling like I can not get enough air which is accompanied with chest pressure, headache, and like I am dying. Will I die? I am drinking lots of tea. Please help, I don t want to even take a small dose to taper: like I said, I ve gone 3 full days and almost finish with day 4. Please help. Why am I experiencing these symptoms and what are they from? Thank you very much for your understanding and assistance.

I just took my blood pressure a few minutes ago. It was 95/65, with my heart rate being 90. I take two blood pressure meds. I have lost about 23 lbs. since January, on a low carb diet. Is it possible that the blood pressure meds are too much for me now? I also have mitral valve regurgitation, and see my cardiologist twice a year. I also started doing water aerobics three times a week, since January. I just want to make sure that this isn t too low now. Is this something I should be concerned about or is this okay?

Doctor, I am Anisha,26 years old, height 169 cm, weight 65kg. Working as Software professional in Bangalore. I had undergone PDA surgery when I was 3 yrs old. I got married 6 months back and got pregnant in last June. During the routine check up for the pregnancy, it was found that, I have SEVERE AS and MILD AR. And doctor advised me to terminate the pregnancy and prescribed immediate Aortic valve replacement surgery. After this, we consulted another doctor and he also came to the same conclusion. We did MTP on June 11th, and after this I got normal periods on July 9th. My next appointment with the cardiologist is on 19th August. Based on the ECHO and ECG, they said, we can fix the date of operation. Doctor has opted, BIO-PROSTHETIC AORTIC VALVE REPLACEMENT. In the last two months, our life was much changed by hearing all this. Abortion and operation, tension, grief everything. I would like to know Doctor, I donĂ¢??t have faced any problem in walking or climbing steps, cycling or anything. I was leading a normal life. After this operation, would we be having any problem with conceiving again? Please take this as my request and please let me know will this operation cause any problem in having children and leading a normal life.
