So first I must give a list of all the medications I take and why.
Synthroid 200 mcg. - 1 1/2 tabs daily for Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
Glucotrol XL 10 mg. - 2 tabs daily for type two diabetes
MS Contin 60 mg. - 1 tab two times a day for arthritic knee pain
Nexium 40 mg. - 1 capsule daily for GERD and heartburn
Calaritin D 12 hour tab 1 tab twice a day for allergies.
Zantac 300 mg. - 1 tab at dinnertime for heartburn
Bentyl 10 mg. - 1 cap before meals and 2 caps at bedtime for IBS
Methotrexate 2.5 mg. - 4 tabs twice a day every Saturday for psoriasis
Able to take the above without vomiting, nausea and diarrhea. If I add the rest of my list I am vomiting within 24 hours.
Over the counter
Weight Conscious multivitamin - 1 tab daily
Fish oil 1000 mg. 2 caps a day for heart health
Niacin 500 mg. - 1 cap daily to help lower cholesterol
Lomotil - take two tabs every four hours as needed for diarrhea
Lisinopril 20 mg. - 1 tab daily for high blood pressure
Procardia XL 30 mg. - 1 tab daily in an effort to soften my esophagus which had gotten hard because of the Reglan I had been previously taken.
Zocor 20 mg. - 1 tab nightly for high triglycerides
Lopid 600 mg. - 1 tab twice a day for high cholesterol
Folic acid 1 mg. - 1 tab daily because I am taking methotrexate.
Lasix 80 mg. - take 1/2 to 1 tab daily with OJ because of fluid retention.
Wellbutrin SR 150 mg. - 1 tab in am and one at lunch for depression, but I was previously on Effexor XR and I had better control of self but had to change insurance companies and they didn't have Effexor XR on their approved list. I am trying to get my psychologist to change it back.
Buspar HCL 15 mg. - 1 tab twice a day to help settle the anxiety and anxiousness.
Seriquel XR 50 mg. - Take 1/2 tab in AM and take 1 1/2 tabs at bedtime or take 4 tabs at bedtime. This was to slow my thoughts down so I could sleep. I only took 100 mg. though.
Miralax powder - 17 grams per 8 ounces of water or juice for constipation problem. However, I have not had to take this in quite some time.
A wad load of medications there with their own chemical actions, interactions and my body chemistry to get under control again.
Sunday I will add my vitamin, see how it goes for a week if no problems then I will add fish oil the next week until I work through all of them and hopefully discover which one or possibly more are causing the vomiting, severe nausea and diarrhea.
So does anyone have any thoughts about this? I'd love to have some input.
