Just wondering but do losec or voltaren tablets interact with lorazepam.
I joined a running group and have since hurt my back again. Have a history of a prolapsed disc. I have taken several voltaren tablets over the course of a few days. The back exercises the physio gave me last year don't seem to be helping.
At times recently I have also taken losec and mylanta syrup for heart burn. My throat felt swollen, my chest was sore and it was painful to swallow. I thought LPRD last time versus reflux.
I had reflux symptoms last night so took 20 mg losec. I also had referred pain in my leg from my back (plus sore back and foot/ calf, etc). I took 50 mg voltaren tablet for that (hoping that it would resolve the symptoms and allow me to run). I also had pain underneath my right ribs and pain in my back down the right side. I'm pretty sure that was gallstones or something like that. Have had irregular PV bleeding but don't think it's related to that.
Anyway, due to not being able to sleep and the pain I took .5mg lorazepam.
Today I was struggling to wake up and get out of bed. This happened to me once when I was taking the mylanta so I was wondering whether it was a drug interaction. I suppose it could easily be due to fatigue from lack of sleep. Writing this it sounds like it is from lack of sleep or depression. It just felt different somehow.
My doctor is away till next week so I wasn't sure whether to follow this up with another doctor or just wait.
I would like to get it checked out and get answers but I know it's nothing and that is causing me to feel anxious.
The hospital were to come up with treatment options (which they haven't done as yet) and my doctor was to refer me to a psychiatrist but I don't know if he's done that or not. The old director of mh is leaving in Feb so he could be leaving it till then.
There shouldn't be any interaction among those agents.
Where is your back pain?
The thing that helped me the most was the combination of stomach exercises and inversion... I was never able to do the stomach exercises properly so would re-injure myself but doing them with inversion was great. Went from chronic pain to years of minor discomfort...
Anyway, not saying I know the answer for everyone, but it is worth trying different approaches. :-)
