Call the pharmacist to make sure none of your other meds are interacting with this one, if you go to the same pharmacist, they would have know what other meds you are on and if there are any interactions, but keep in mind they get very busy, not only with checking the meds that are filled but also checking refill orders, faxes, dr. calls, etc. BUT also be aware that if you can't get ahold of your pharmacist, keep in mind that sudden discontinuation of the drug can exacerbate angina, etc. Make sure you change positions slowly.

For quite some time, I have been experiencing pins and needles in my feet and occasionally in other parts of my body. They are so bad that I cannot sleep. Plus my left foot feels like I have a hugh callous between the ball of my foot and my toes. My legs hurt and if I do not take 250 mg of magnesium at bedtime, I have sever leg and foot cramps. I cannot sleep more than about 20 minutes a stretch and feel horrible from lack of sleep. What can I do to eliminate the pins and needles and get some rest. email:

Hi I am 25 years old with. I moved to a new place two months ago. Since the first time I had a bath here, I ve noticed brown patches on my skin. After having a warm water bath, I immediately experience a tingling sensation on my hands, legs, back, stomach etc. (all over my body) after which brown discolored patches appear on my skin. Most of these patches appear brown while some a brownish white. They are more or less rounded in shape while some are asymmetrical. The patches don t itch, aren t red or scaly and don t cause any other irritation except the tingling which happens right before a patch appears. I have about 30-35 of these patches spread all over, ranging in size between radius 0.2cm to 1.5cm. They are increasing in number every time I have a bath and the old patches aren t fading away. I have no other health problems and my general health is good. I have not experienced any kind of skin allergy before. Please advise me on the following, 1. What could be causing the rashes? I suspect that these patches are caused by some microorganism present in the water. If so, Is there any disinfectant that I can put into the water to kill these microorganisms? Should I get my water tank cleaned with chlorine or any other disinfectant? 2. How do I prevent this problem from exacerbating? 3. What medication I can take for the rashes, topical or otherwise? 4. Will the brown patches remain permanently on my skin? 5. Are there any diagnostics tests to confirm what is causing the rashes? Thank you. Your help will be immensely appreciated.

I am peri-menopausal, can t sleep do to hot and cold feeling and when I lay down my whole body feels tingling. on 1/25 Dr put me on 10 mg amatriptyline at bedtime along with the black cohosh and valerian root I was taking. It started to help, I think, but had 4 really bad nights, the 3rd night didn t get more than a few minutes sleep from 10am to 8am, I fall asleep but then wait up when I try to lay all the way down. Talked to Dr today she is prescribing Abien to take with the rest. I am worried about side effects. Also, After 4 days of crappy sleep I really feel out of sorts today, having quick hot flashes and getting the tingling feeling off and on which last for a few minutes. Thoughts?

I am 66, 5'2" and 155lbs. I developed a fib 2 years ago (now regulated) and was put on an older beta blocker plus I have high blood pressure for which I am now on the 5th different med ...I take 0.137 mg synthroid daily for 30 years, strength has varied over the years from 0.075 to as high as 0.2mg...my tsh, which is the only measurement my physician will consider, is usually 2.5 or thereabouts...in the last few months my hypothyroid symptoms have increased and on the last lab my tsh was very high, over 8 so I know my thyroid level is very low...I am very fatigued, depressed and most upsetting am eating less and getting fatter, where before I was overweight but firm and now I can feel fat in my thighs and upper arms plus around my abdomin which I never had before. Research shows the older type of beta blocker, atenolol, can slow metabolism and cause insulin resistance, (I am not diabetic) is it safe to simply stop one beta blocker and start another...in fact, I'd like to get off it altogether but the last time my physician said to just stop taking it, I developed pvc's which was corrected by increasing the atenolol. I am distressed about the side effects of this drug and wld like to take something less toxic.
