thans for yr response .im not sure if youread thougoughly but my concern in some form of neurotoxicity because i was taking lexapo- cypralex and also applied the voltaren gel on the dmso,,i understand this solution crosses blood brain barrier?
there is a company called pennsaid that uses this formula pharmaceutically but in much lower concentrations...
this morning i had a urinary erection as sometimes in morning but no sensorial satisfactiontrying masturbating myself..so did not last...
im very concerned
do you think a prescrirtpiion of cialis could physically overcome the damage done ?..
Do you think this situtation may be reversed?
i know traditional medecine does not believe in clay baths, chlorella, natural detox formulas etc..but is this something that i should consider or is my situation going to stay or worsen.?
in the last few days on the internet i have read about cellular apotheseis, peripharal neuropathy due to nerotoxicity etc and this is what im concerned about,
is this reversable with time?
IS IT THE LEXAPRO IN MY BLOOD WHICH
LEAD TO SOME FORM OF SEROTONINE SYNDROME with the msdo which potentiales medecine?that im still experiecing effects? i remember when i took half my dose-because i knew dmso potentiates medecine-! the next day 25 mg instead of 50 mg .it felt as i had taken 10 pills!(mild dizziness, blood pressure shot up, ringing in my ears etc..)
is these any way i can reverse all these symptoms??
many thanks for yr help andclarification
can i ask you what yr qualifactions are?i am not asking you this in an arrogant way
are you not concerned about neurotoxicity in my situation as described?
is it worthwhile for me to make an appoint with a neorologist to pass various various neurology tests? (nbeut tehre is long waiting list in public sycte, in canada )
i was at hospital the day afrter the dmso was applied becuase of unusual high blood pressure 9certainly the interaction in blood with the medecines mentionned. and the blood tyest were normal, they nlet me go same night. i presume they did the tests you are talikng about?
thank you very much for yr assurance!
youve helped my mind ..
If it wasnt for my erectile dysfunction last weekend with girlfirend, i would not be in this anxiety panic mood
Im surprise im unable to even masturbate after this incident
I know the lexapro in high doses can result in this but i never encountered this situation taking 5 mg daily for last 6 months
The only thing i can think- if you are ruling this neuropathy out- (i did read a post hwver that a NSAID combined may msdo MAY lead to periphal neuropathy)
is that the dmso really maxed out the 25gr lexapro efficacity and left me with some after secondary effects....(light headiness , slight dizziness ,ercetile dysf.)
do you know the half life of the lexapro how long it can be in my blood after stopping it ?(having taking it for last 6 months)
I have stopped taking it after this incident but i hope my worrying in last 8-9 days isnot putting me at risk of relapsing ..,.id like to start taking it again at small dose only for this purpose..but im a little apprehensive to take any medication right now withe my last dmso interaction
Thanks for yr feedback
to follow up on my last message, i know im possibly over anxious about all this... but... i did read over the- natural medecines comprehensive database-that the drug store printed out to me last week:
dmso-mechansism of action
evidence also suggests dmso slows the conduction of c-type nerve fibers which might explain its analgesic affects - ref 6329
---------------what are c type nerve fibers? and any relation with my condition
---------------with yr knowledge this action would be reversible?any permanent damage to my nerve system..?
dmso also increases histamine release from mast cells which is thought to be responsible for the eosinophilia and hypersensitivity reactions associated with its use (ref 6324)
i googled nerve damage -under wikipedia -i know thats not the bible;;;which lead me to a paragraph about neorostatis (?)and one of the things were: accidently applying local analgesic accidently going through the blood stream. I did not apply benzocain, lidocain but an antiflammatory spray (voltaren) (thru msdo) .Symptoms and effects i read were pretty scary: (BECAUSE i have a couple of these:ringing in ears but i also have had that with eeffects of lexapro) ...and they also mention ED!, perspiration system etc...
i dearly hope this is not my situation..
Hi do you have an alternative to lexapro?
I have started agai because i had headaches, and started feeling weird in my head..due all this anxiety....
Ihate myself for having over reacted!You were right it seems
my MD saw blood results and told me everyting was nomal
As Imentionned to you had been taking cipralex -(lexapro in US) in last 6 months nightly at 5mg..
.I had started taking last October when busneess stress occured , wasnt sleeping
and remebred it had helped me 3 years ago when i took it for a similar issue
I weaved myself off it in a couple months )
With dmso in my system 12 days ago I took only 2.5 mg, a day after taking my usual 5mg and had quite a reaction!
(and its not because i spilt the dose because many days i simply forget taking the drug)
so because of this reaction (mixed with diovan andvolteren in my sytem of course)
i had completly stopped till day before yesterday..
I started again at a test dose of 1.25
because i remembed my reaction at 2.5 mg
and currently have headache and full head
(could also be cause by the exagerated stress in last week )
but the medecine seems tomake things worst even at this small dose!
Can you tell me what you think happoenned during that 2.5 exposure with dmso in my system? it felt like i had taken 50mg!
and i think i still feel the effects.were some vessels over sensitiezed for me to feel the way i currently feel?, How long to do you think this will go away becasue it is affectying my quality of life and think im starting slight depression again
I never had any side effects that bad at 5mg.and im having stonger effects at
(and i think you mentionned o me at this stage
with blood life of dmso ,12 days later, i would not have any dmso in my system anymore)
howvere with all my worryng and diffuclty sleeping
in the last week (I sleep with 5mg zoplicone
total 5 hours)Ill probbaly take half xanax on top tonite to try get 7 hours
Many thanks for yr professionalism and kindness
