When the patient is stable attempts should be made to reduce the dosage to an adequate maintenance level. Children Children are very susceptible to the hypotensive and soporific effects of levomepromazine. Elderly patients It is not advised to give levomepromazine to ambulant patients over 50 years of age unless the risk of a hypotensive reaction has been assessed.
There are no absolute contraindications to the use of Nozinan in terminal care. The hypotensive effects of Nozinan should be taken into account when it is administered to patients with cardiac disease and the elderly or debilitated. Patients receiving large initial doses should be kept in bed. As with other neuroleptics, cases of QT interval prolongation have been reported with levomepromazine very rarely.
Consequently, and if the clinical situation permits, absence of the following risk factors for onset of this type of arrhythmia should be verified prior to administration: Prior to initiation of treatment with levomepromazine, it may be appropriate to consider an ECG with measurement of serum calcium, magnesium and potassium levels.
I now have a home based cruise business and have bought an extra Relief Band Explorer because I lend mine out to clients and I also recommend it to all who raise the concern of seasickness! The winds were 25 kts, gusting to 35 kts all evening. There was no moon, no horizon, and the helmsmen steered strictly by the sound of the waves coming up behind us.
During his watch, Johnny sat in the cockpit with little to do except wait for a headsail change. In the dark we couldn't see his queaziness. Suddenly Johnny leaned to the rail and fed the fish a midnight snack. His Dad turned over the helm, went below and came back up with a ReliefBand.
We own a 22ft Grady and usually fish the bay and slightly off shore of the Jersey Coast, weather permitting. One beautiful calm day we headed out to the ocean, 5 minutes into our first drift it hit me, what a horrible feeling, at that time I vowed never to laugh or make fun of other people plagued with this illness.
I swallowed my pride, plus, and made it thru the trip. We made the same trip the next day. I refused to take the pills because I wanted to be awake but I did arm myself with, peach juice, ginger, ginger ale and a couple other home remedies, needless to say nothing worked. Our local boating stores cannot keep them in stock. I purchase them 3 and 4 at a time.
I strongly recommend them to anyone who gets seasick or carsick. They even take away the rocking motion that you experience after you return to shore. I get carsick, airsick, taking a shower sick, just about any kind of motion sickness you can imagine. And these sessions of sickness could last for up to three days. How could I ever stand to cruise in our wonderful, new to us boat?
Then I saw an ad for ReliefBand it is one word picturing a gal hanging onto the post of a dock. And was she ever green! I felt this was my last chance and had to give it a try. Next thing I knew we were in rough waters with swells from feet.
I was too sick to go below and get my ReliefBand. Twenty minutes later I was back to my normal, loving this cruise self. Gingersnaps or ginger tea can help calm the stomach, but to me they are just an excuse to enjoy a cookie or a cup of tea.
It's sudden, intense, long lasting and causes mental anguish. It can grow dangerous; it's no joke. Naturally, he's tried everything over the years. The electrical pulse wristband worked miraculously for him. He can't believe it.
The wristbands were pricey and a gamble, but is he ever glad he tried it. Roseanne Packard Berkley, CA I have suffered since childhood with pretty significant motion sickness symptoms and I have tried several remedies. I have been determined through the years to not let my motion sickness symptoms interfere with opportunities. If you've been plagued by this curse, you are well aware of its ability to wreck an outing.
Over the years medications such as Dramamine and Bonine made me too sleepy to be a practical solution for traveling. In the early s the versions of Scopolamine caused significant side effects with vision and drowsiness. I later tried other prescription anti-nausea medications like Phenergan, and even an anti-anxiety medication Xanax, after some well meaning friends suggested the nausea was "all in my head" and that it was "a control issue". Again the drowsiness from these medications was too significant to be practical for travel.
As a Registered Nurse I have reviewed explanations for the causes of motion sickness, and "knowledge has availed me nothing". This is truly a medical malady, as anyone knows who has gone deepsea fishing and been hit with the demoralizing and paralyzing symptoms of motion sickness.
A fairly recent therapy in the treatment of motion sickness and vertigo issues is a treatment called Vestibular Rehabilitation, which focuses on eye, head, and body exercises to retrain the brain on interpreting the body's signals from the middle ear. This therapy warrants investigation by frequent or severe suffers of motion sickness. The next phase for me may well be investigating Vestibular Rehab. Here are a few things from a website on Vestibular Rehab: The vestibular system is housed in your inner ear.
It works in conjunction with your visual and sensory systems to control your balance and orientation to space. Vestibular rehab combines exercises and positioning techniques that help improve the function of your vestibular system.
A doctor who also loves to sail prescribed a combination of SeaBands applied to the wrists and the pill Bonine. Lloyd Hirsch Ginger Only get seasick in certain kinds of surf.
I'm a lifelong sailor but the first time I got seasick was on a big cruise ship. They happened to have ginger tablets in the drug store on board, which by the next day had sold out.
I took several and rested. Had to re-do a couple of times, but the sickness went away. Has worked on our sailboat a couple of times too and I make sure to always have some on board.
In , prior to my first cruise with my husband and 16 other family members, we watched an episode of Mythbusters on TLC. Mythbusters debunked most of the seasick remedies on the market, with the exception of a doctor-prescribed medicine which had a side-effect of drowsiness and standard extract of Ginger.
I purchased a bottle of ginger tablets from my local health store. The first night during dinner, my sister-in-law and I felt a little queasy. Nothing terrible, but we decided to take a Ginger tablet. Within 20 minutes, we felt great! Could this be real? Or the placebo effect? My opinion was sealed when one of our nephews spent the entire dinner laying on the chair and floor of the dining room, while the other kids were having a wonderful time.
I gave him one tablet of Ginger and we all watched as after about 10 minutes, he was sitting in the chair. After another 10 minutes, he was running around with the other kids.
He took one tablet a day for the remainder of the trip and never felt sick again. The final litmus test was for my husband, who has a relatively strong stomach.
One night, he had a headache, his stomach wasn't feeling good. It might have been a combination of too much beer, sun and food instead of seasickness, but after taking a ginger tablet, he felt great! It's cheap, natural, doesn't require a doctor visit and anyone can take it. We keep a bottle on the boat for newcomers and people prone to motion sickness. At the first sign of problem, you just swallow a couple of pills — more if needed and the seasickness is gone!!
We have used this remedy many times with great results. Ginger Root is a completely natural food product available at any Health store. Works far better than wrist bands!! I used to get seasick in the bathtub, one of those folks who got woozy on a boat that was docked. On a trip from Los Angeles to Catalina I was sick the whole way there and the whole way back. I now go to Catalina, by boat, quite often, and rain or shine, flat water or 4 foot swells, I'm the picture of rosy, happy sailing.
The wristband didn't work for me so if there are others for which it doesn't work, please try ginger! Ellen In response to your article on seasickness remedies that work, I was reminded of an episode of Mythbusters show on the Discovery Channel from where various home remedies were tested by two seasickness-prone members of the cast. After minutes on a spinning chair, both Adam and Grant reported no symptoms whatsoever after taking a ginger pill.
All other remedies tested had absolutely no positive effect and resulted in a pretty messy show. I myself swear by the ability of ginger to prevent seasickness and have remained seasick-free since One is, never drink coffee before a trip at sea Coffee is very unsettling to the stomach. Another is the role of ginger as a settling agent for the queasy Chinese seamen have been using it for a thousand years to calm queasiness. As skipper for many years, I have been pretty successful, against all odds at keeping my cookies down when I am in charge Exiting Hawk Channel out of the Florida Keys into 9 foot seas on a friends 35 Catalina a few years back, successfully, without loosing my cookies can only be a result of taking Crystalline Ginger It has also assisted many crews aboard my sailing vessel, a 36 Hunter — Vision, Captiva.
I highly recommend it. I've been told that it works — always and quickly. Brent Putnam Meclizene Bonine, Dramine II Originally developed to treat vertigo, Meclizine generic Antivert is available as a stronger prescription drug in 50mg dosages and over the counter in 25mg dosages for adults and Several readers noted that Meclizine has a tendency to make you sleepy, especially the prescription version, which, as one reader said, "puts me to sleep and keeps me there.
I'd like to share my methodology for effectively coping with my severe tendency to get seasick. After many different trials of drugs and gadgets, I have found that taking Meclizine Bonine at least 18 hours before motion begins is KEY!
The directions on most pills for seasickness prevention speak of hours before exposure. This simply is not enough time for the drug to get fully distributed in your body. This works so well, that I remained "under control" during a flight in a twin-engine DASH 8 flying through a severe frontal passage with serious-looking thunderheads all around us. My wife who is motion sickness-resistant, didn't use my Meclizine, got very ill on that flight.
Another item of interest is that the Scopolamine patch, for a few unlucky individuals, can CAUSE one to suffer seasickness symptoms. During that time I wore a Scopolamine patch with no negative results. Immediately after this, we flew to the BVI to begin a week of bareboat sailing.
At this point, I was on my second patch I get airsick too. When we left the dock, I began to feel that familiar unease, and thinking the patch had gone flat, put another one on. Unfortunately, the nausea did not recede, and the only time I felt comfortable was when I was snorkeling, or sleeping. Fighting the nausea finally became too much, and we aborted our vacation trip. The nausea, and some vertigo, persisted even after I arrived home, and my wife called Ciba-Geigy, the manufacturer of the Scop Transdermic patch.
The authority there told her that I was one in , that develops this side-effect from this drug. I was told to get on a tranquilizer, and drink lots of water.
It took about 10 days to fully rid myself of the side-effects' symptoms, and never considered using the patch again. I believe the problems related to the patch's temporary withdrawal was with too great a variance in the dosage being passed through the patch membrane to the skin.
I don't think my problem was related to Ciba-Geigy's manufacturing problem. I am no stranger to motion sickness, both car and seasickness. I am an Otolaryngologist Ear, Nose and Throat specialist who deals heavily with inner ear problems since There is no ultimate treatment.
The problem is the balance and motion apparatus of the inner ear. Even seasoned sailors can get seasickness. Medical therapy works the best, regardless of anecdotal reports of Relief Bands, copper bracelets, etc.
There is no medical evidence to support efficacy. Accupuncture works, but my acupuncturist is seldom around when the seas get rough. The quickest and most effective drug is scopolamine, applied by a transdermal patch delivery system.
Hallucinations were mentioned in your article, but these are rare. Using the logic of the FDA, all patrons and employees of every drug store should be issued a speeding traffic violation every time they visit the pharmacy because you know the speed laws were probably broken by more than a few folks any day. And thousands of percents more of people die as a result of speeding every day. After reading the above messages, I find many of them non-credible because of the amounts of the drug they are able to acquire without any regulation.
I take mg a day 6 X 50 and my drugest treats me like a criminal. I really need more of the drug because of the tolerance built up after almost 6 years. I tolerate the drug well and it gives me almost relief I need. It seems most Druggests and Dr. I just want the pain to go away osas And that person is use to taking 50 mg.
What is the amount to overdose. The prescribed and recommended dose is the only way Tramadol should be taken. The high doses are the minimum the get any relief what so ever. Drugs like endone do not provide relief for me. How much higher than this am i risking overdose? I want to stay on the safe side as my dose is so many times higher than the reccomended maximum. This dose of tramadol is a daily need.
Hads earlier taken to nurofen due to toothache. Is this a problem. Normal daily dose of tramadol is mg, due to fibro-myalgia Lydia Addiction Blog 3: Call the Poison Control Center at for an assessment of overdose risk or with help on what to do next.
The VA cut my pills to 2 two times a day. The Tramadol two times in 24 hours are not nearly enough. What would be the best thing for me to do besides Physical therapy as I work around the house a lot. Pain management would not be the best thing for me.
These are what the VA offered I am 25 miles from any of those place.. Thank you ymouszanon 5: I was born with a congenital defect in my neck. I was on hydrocodone for a decade. Tylenol acetaminophne in it ironically is more damaging to your liver and other visceral organs and shortens life span. Because of the cruel cdc guidelines, she is in fear like many doctors.
Several pharmacists said a doctor should have nothing to fear if she went from Vicodin, now schedule 2 to codeine products like tylenol or paracematol 3 in schedule.
I use to feel horrible taking anything with codeine and usually get up and have coffee. So i bought some general all around digestive enzymes from the health food store. I found a bottle with about 5 tylenol with codeine from a dentist after a back tooth extraction. The Trammadol does almost nothing for me. I have to take around mg per day for any effect. So what does she give me.
My whole life has been emotional and physical pain. Well at least, so i told the non opioid tramdol which acts something like and opioid by binding to the GABA receptors.
I tried recently after taking 76 pills at once. Woke up very disappointed and angrier that when I when to sleep. My life is a total wreck. Girlfriend left me for meth and totally heart broken. I went on ahead and took mg. Am I going to die from this? Lydia Addiction Blog 7: I also take mg Gabapentin with it 3Xday for nerve damage burning. I remembered just as I swallowed the 2nd dose! It is always preferred to have the valuation of shares by an outside expert to determine the fair exchange value of shares.

Notice [in form no. She made it out alive. How much of what she took was a lethal dose. I wish she could so she can understand how close she was, because if there is a next time i feel that it will be the last time and I wish she could know that. Will her memory come back? Should she see a neurologist?
Any feed back is appreciated. She in a good treatment program now an seems better. But tell that to this mom. She probably will never remember what happened, but she can work on the underlying reasons that lead her to think of taking so many pills and give her suicidal ideation.
I wish you all the best. I believe this has caused her to have many health issues. I was very alarmed to see her recently sleeping looking so out of it and food hanging out of her mouth. What can be done about this? Yes, drive him to the hospital as soon as possible. PLEASE do not take this medication or any other if it is not prescribed for you by a licensed physician. Don't get it twisted 4: Danielle I truly this u will b OK…. I have started seeing a new pain management dr for my back and he is wanting me to stop taking it all together.
Combined with a drink or two of beer. I had never taken anything in that dose before that or to this day.
Is it possible for complications to arise? She washed it down with a half bottle of red wine.. She said that it would help her sleep.. I am a registered nurse too. I do not take it recreationally, only at HS to be able to quiet my mind and sleep. I do have a high tolerance to medication, and have my whole life.
Dentist visits are awful for me and if I ever do require narcotic pain medication my doctor has to prescribe a higher dose for it to be effective and take the edge off of my pain. And yes I am a redhead…. I have tried every other sleep aid out there and the alprazolam has proven to work the best!
However would 6mg taken in one dose at HS no other sleep aids or narcotics at the same time be dangerous even though I have had good results with this? I obviously do not want to die in my sleep lol but this works for me, is it safe?
My doctor is aware that I take more than one 2mg tab at times thanks!! He left to commit suicide. He is still not responding after 24 hrs in icu…are there cases of taking this long to come out of the over dose? He has been give 4 maybe more at this time of drug to counter act. I just want to make sure he is taking the proper amount and he is not over using this medication.
It clearly states on the Ambien packet 8pm, yet the facility gives it to her at 5pm. My mother only weighs 81lbs. Took 20 two days ago. I have taken the Zanex for about 15 years. I have real bad anxiety and since the death of my son when he was only 18 days old. Is trying to stop me cold turkey. I suggest you ask your doctor to help you create a tapering schedule and keep prescribing your medication until you safely lower your doses over time.
Cold turkey brings harsh and stressful withdrawal symptoms, whose intensity can be drastically lowered if you tapering. If you do experience withdrawal symptoms while tapering, ask a pharmacist which over-the-counter medications can help. The only difference I feel is that I am not able to sleep. When am I going to feel other symptoms? I take 10 MLG a day She was able to spit them out and take a few. She is feeling drowsy and looks really pale.
What do i do. I have been taking doses this high for over 10 years. I would give my right arm and leg to be able to be completely rid of the benzo addiction. I even went to prison for doctor shopping for xanax. I know everyone says this but even at the enormous amounts I take, the only effect it has on me is that I am normal meaning not in benzo withdrawal.
I know how dangerous it is mixing it with the methadone and when I run short, the withdrawal is unbearable. Bc of the doctor shopping charge, I have not even tried to get my own prescription which I see as a road block to getting the professional help I need to quit.
What should i do? But I ran out and I have my old. If this is her first time on the medication, she should be taken to the hospital.
So I added a. Dumb time to ask now, but am I gonna croak? Ivana Addiction Blog 3: It depends on many factors and I hope it passes without any serious consequences. If I take 2 blue Xanax will I be okay? Ivana Addiction Blog 5: I guess you took the 1mg Xanax pills. I took the two and really feel out of it. Will I be okay? Call to talk to a poison expert and get instructions on what to do next.
They were my dads the white bars, not sure the exact mg. She woke up, had her shower and is now back asleep. What do you further suggest? The paramedics revived her and she was in a coma for a few days. After coming out of the coma she had severe breathing problems. The Drs kept claiming it was just anxiety. She was choking and weezing for air, but they said it was just anxiety.
After a week of hospitalization they sent her home. She was repeatedly fighting for air. They released her from the hospital, they refused to keep her there even through the severe breathing problems. Died right on the sofa. How does someone die less than two hours after being cleared by a hospital to go home? I came to Asia to help deal with anxiety depression paranoia and heart break I brought some off the street.. Will I be ok shaggy I left an unfrozen ellios pizza out…along w other food items.
I found the X in middle of kitchen table and cleaned up evidence of weirdness before family woke up.. Starting doses are as low at 0. I also take xnanx for anxiety and to control muscle spams in my back I accidrntly took 6 xnanxs causr of the pain and I cant sleep should I be ok… cass 1: Would I need medical attention?
That would be a dose of 5mg of Xanax. However, it may be harmful if you took the medication for the first time. You can go to the hospital where you will be monitored by doctors, but have someone take you there. Then, they can provide her with a proper therapy if needed. I now take xanax but my body has built up a tolerance to it.. I take 2 mill twice a day usually to help me sleep..
Just this past week I was up for 7 nights and days straight.. I thought I was losing my mind! Is there any doctors out there that will understand that your body builds up a tolerance.. I am a fighter. I just need to know if taking more xanax then prescribed will hurt me in the long run so I can prove this to my doctor!! Thank you for your time.
I look forward to your response. I am just simply worried about my health please reply as quick as possible. Sincerely, a worried teen Ivana Addiction Blog 3: Call the Poison Control Center on for a free over-the-phone assessment of the risk of overdose, and if you are feeling any side effects tell your parents to take you to the hospital. And the samething happened this morning and he still cannot talk or walk but not in coma either.
His mom has been watching him today at home and does not know what to do. What do we do this time? I was on 1mg twice a day. Since mum died my anxiety is worse and panic. People who have dexterity problems—like the elderly, people with disabilities, or children Ease of use for patients with dental appliances such as braces A variety of powered toothbrushes that use a different types of head movement side-to-side, counter oscillation, rotation oscillation, circular, ultrasonic are available.
People brush longer with the powered toothbrush. Most have a two-minute timer to insure brushing duration is adequate. Hardly a day goes by where we are not filling a Clindamycin and Ibuprofen prescription for someone with significant dental decay who was just seen in the ED.
Unfortunately neither profession can adequately treat these "mechanical problems" and a trip to the dental office is the only effective resolution. We will spend the next couple of weeks exploring the dental sections in our pharmacies.
Prevention of dental problems is truly the key to improving our patients dental health. It all starts with the toothbrush! The most important rule for toothbrush selection at the Kreckel house is this: I get the blue toothbrush. Kreckel is free to buy any color toothbrushes that are on sale, as long as mine is blue! Let's talk about the most common one "aphthous ulcers".
February 23, "Canker sores, what to do when someone pulls down their lip and asks for your advice! Aphthous ulcers are painful, round shallow lesions with a grayish base. Recurrent aphthous stomatitis RAS is the most common cause of mouth ulcers.
Some patients may have only two to four outbreaks per year, while others may have almost continuous eruptions. Aphthous ulcers are seen most frequently in childhood and adolescence and decrease in frequency in adulthood.
There seems to be a familial tendency. It is not caused by any infectious agent virus or bacteria. There seems to be an association between recurrent cases of canker sores and an overactive immune system, so topical immunosuppressant medications such as topical corticosteroids are of benefit.
Avoid trauma to mouth when brushing teeth. Cover sharp edges of braces with dental wax. Over the counter treatment options include: Zilactin-B as we discussed last week forms a protective film over the lesion, and can be applied every 6 hours. Benzocaine helps decrease the pain, but should be avoided in kids under age 2 because of methemoglobinemia.
Applying ice chips directly to the ulcer Rinsing mouth with a baking soda solution: Dab a small amount of milk of magnesia to the canker sore a few times per day.
If all else fails, Rx treatment of canker sores: Because corticosteroids inhibits cell proliferation and is immunosuppressive, antiproliferative, and anti-inflammatory they are the mainstay for treatment of aphthous ulcers.
