My kidneys was reading high like 1600 which they said it should be between 35 to 135 what ever that means. I would like to know what the long term effects of my whole body is.

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I am sorry to hear about the problem with your kidneys. Once you have been having problems with overdosage with medications especially opioids, kidney damage may be normal. I also believe that you will do well with consulting a psychiatrist who is experienced in drug abuse problems so as to get the appropriate treatment. Other organs may also be involved and you should consult a psychiatrist to make sure that you get a complete check up to make sure that your other organs are healthy.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

I am 67 year old female and have been taking 40 mg of quinapril daily for 5 plus years for high blood pressure. Recently my doctor added hydrochlorot 25 mg daily to better reduce my bp. This morning I accidently took 1/2 tablet of clonidine 0.1mg by mistake. (Kept on hand if needed in case of dangerously high bp and never used.) My current bp reading is 79 over 54. I am resting comfortably and waiting for the clonidine 0.1mg to wear off. I feel tired but no other side effects. Should I take any other action?

Hello Doctor. I am writing not because of myself, but because of my sister who I am really worried about. She was involved in a car accident in January of 2010 and has had 3 back surgeries due to this. She has been taking oxycodone and or vicodin every since. She just found out she is pregnant. She doesn t know what to do. She is extremely happy but worried about the pain pills. She wants to try to taper off of them, but I read that could be dangerous for the fetus. Do you recommend her getting on suboxone which I read can be dangerous as well or subutex which I ve read can be safe. We definitely don t want to go the methadone route for obvious reasons. Any help and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. She is 37 years old and is worried about her age as well. Thank you Doctor and look forward to hearing from you. David

My doc is prescribing Elavil for pain I am experiencing in the vulva area. I am wondering if that works for pain such as this? Wasn t sure why an anti depressant was being used? I am currently on Oxycodone for the pain, which works, but I do not want to stay on this drug any longer than necessary.
