My fiance started having memory loss episodes at the end of december. He went to the hospital, was admitted for 2 days and all tests come back negative. He now has nonconvulsive seizures that developed during the end of his hospital stay snd then increased in severity. He has no insurance, and now will have 10+ seizures an hour if he does not use cbd oil every 4 hours. We have no where to turn to.

Fibromyalgia - migraines - memory loss
| Rudy L. Wright
I have a friend who is suffering extreme memory loss believed to have been brought on by Fibromyalgia. She has suffered from FM for a long time, and suffered a severe migraine just after Thanksgiving 2015. As a result, she lost all memory - short and long term. She has also lost the ability to read and write and gets confused in locations and situations that should be familiar to her, She and her husband have racked up nearly $50,00,00 in med bills so far with no results. Is there anyone who has experienced this, or has someone they know who is experiencing this? Perhaps there is a procedure that they have not considered, or something experimental. They need answers that can lead to a cure.

Finasteride ruined my sexual life and more
| Luis_1982
Finasteride made my libido, quality of erections and orgasm to near 0. I was checked hormonally and I was diagnosed with hypogonadism 2 years after quitting the drug. I have had muscle wastage, srunk pennis size, testicular aches, lost of libido and interest in sex, homosexual thoughts (no joke I know finasteride is used for transxeuals), very bad brain fog, sexual anhedonia, memory loss, joint problems, difficult of speech, anxiety for no reason and insomnia. It difficulted my professional career a lot. And the most important things is that symptoms gor worse after quitting the drug, and have stayed with me years after quitting!

Hallucinations and paranoia
| michellek
13 year old daughter takes 50mg a day. After she titrated up to her maximum dose she started becoming paranoid and hallucinating. She'd see hands, faces, demons, shadows, etc. I called her neurologist who prescribed it for migraines and they denied these as a side effect. Daughter slept with me for a couple months and she seemed to do better after a while. Fast forward 1 year and we upped her dose by 12.5mg. Immidiateley she began having hallucinations (audio and visual), nervousness, and paranoia. She's also struggled with memory loss, lack of focus and concentration. Took her to a phyciatrist and we are now weaning her off this dreadful drug. Weaning has caused panic attacks too. The only good that came from this drug was no migraines. NOt worth it.

Have anybody experienced loss of words on cipralex? I can't seem to find the words I am looking for. I also have a very very bad short time memory which was not the case before. I am trying to stop now, It seems that I have nauseas, headaches and i cry a lot.

I have been on cipralex for 15 years now for panic attacks, physical effects anxiety and ocd but it's not working for me anymore. A doctor increased my dose to 20mg last August from the 10mg I had been taking for the past 14 years and also prescribed me with .5mg of rivitrol to help me on bad days but I ended up taking it on a daily basis nearly with small breaks in between. I researched for another doctor and after many tests he has no put me on Zoloft 50mg I am yet to take them yet as I am weening off cipralex still, 15mg for 5 days, 10 mg for a further 5 days, 5 mg for 5 days which is where I am now. After another 5 days I will start introducing Zoloft 25mg then 50mg. During this weening I am taking .5mg of rivitrol to help me as I still have my business to run and cannot be dealing with the daily issues of my illness but I feel terrible, very sleepy, flu like symptoms, bad digestive system. Has anyone else experienced this? And should I be taking rivitrol and weening off cipralex at the same time? I would welcome any comments.

I would also like to add that I am not a depressive person, I feel the physical sides of anxiety like believing I am going to have a heart attack daily, tingly arms, dizziness which is exhausting after a few years - my new doctor believes I have a chemical in balance, what are your thoughts on this? I used to be a heavy drug and alcohol user and have now stopped for 5 years and he believes I was self medicating

Has anyone taking sotalol experienced memory loss?

I'm taking sotalol and oxcarbazepine and they have the same negatives. I'm feeling exhausted, weak and I'm having trouble thinking. Should these drugs be used together.

| M.Hill
I have had these symptoms on & off for years. It began when I had about a week of foggy head, vision problens, balance issues, muscle weakness & memory issues. The Neurologists told me I had ocular migraines. I have accepted that diagnosis for years, however the symptoms are getting worse & after some investigating I found that ocular migraines are very brief, maybe 30 minutes. My symptoms lasts for days. In the mom of a special needs child & these symptoms leave me just short of disfunctional. I have had serious memory loss both short & long term (I don't remember very much if my life, school, Childhood, even significant moments/procedures my disabled son has had. I know he's had 24 brain surgeries but I can barely recall them even though I was there for each & every one of them.) I have difficulty remembering a few days ago. My legs feel like wet noodles, my hands, especially the right, shake, I have periods where it's difficult to grasp things. Lately I've had pain on my right side around my ribs. The Drs "mentioned" shingles. This person I am today is simply a shell of my former self. I'm whinny sometimes & hardly ever leave the house. I'm scared. I can't care for my son like I want to. I just don't know what to do anymore or where to turn. Am I correct in thinking this is not ocular migraines?

I wish I had known!
| 02bobj192
I started taking Omeprazole after weight loss surgery and suffered short term memory loss to the point I was unable to work. I was unaware of short term memory loss problems and omeprazole and continued to take it. The memory loss problems became so bad I loss my job and now I am permanently disabled. I became aware of the problems on 2/15/16 and will stop taking it for now and see what happens. I started taking this drug in November of 2009 and have taken it every day until today.
