I am taking 80mg of nadolol. I also was recently prescribed

I am taking 80mg of nadolol for migraines. I also was recently prescribed 20 mg of adderall for concentration/fatigue issues. I've read that there may be a contraindication given the risks associated with unopposed alpha. Should I be concerned about this? How serious is the risk given the dosages I'm taking? Is the contraindication really just targeted at amphetamine overdose?

Yes, I am a 62 year old male who has had Lone A-fib for 11

Yes, I am a 62 year old male who has had Lone A-fib for 11 years but controlled most of the time with a daily dosage of 200mg of amiodarone. Resting heart rate is around 50bpm but with a cardio work out gets up to 80bpm. I am on one 40mg tablet of Nadolol and am wondering should I cut the dosage to 20mg/day for increased heart rate. Have been seeing an Cardiologist for 11 years and am wondering what is the optimum course of action to take? My Dr. is nice but is inundated here in Montgomery, AL and has little time to talk at our yearly checkups. Any nuggets of advice you can give me would be very much appreciated. Jimmy Miller, Jr. Also have had a pre-mature heart beat since I was 14 years old. Can this aggravate the A-Fib, seems my pre-mature heart beat is more prevalent under stress,( mental ).

What is the most recent study that shows taking Vitamin B6

What is the most recent study that shows taking Vitamin B6 as effective in reducing tremors due to LIthium? Are there other things I could do or take to reduce my tremor? I took 900mg daily for over a decade (Yearly bloodwork always showed a 0.6 Lithium blood level, and last year it was 0.8). With this dosage I had a very mild hand tremor that only changed slightly for the worse on any day after I had consumed more than 4 drinks. (One or two drinks wouldn't make my tremor worse.) My last bloodwork (2 weeks ago) showed a 0.43 Lithium level and my dosage was bumped (1 week ago) to 1200mg (600mg morning/600mg evening). Since the increase to 1200mg daily my hand tremor has become so bad that simple tasks like typing on my computer, texting on/dialing the phone, and clipping fingernails are all extremely difficult. I am quite familiar with the symptoms of Lithium toxicity and I have none. Re: caffeine intake I drink 2 cups coffee in the morning and don't smoke. Less than 7 drinks/week (wine) But my hands shake all day/eve. Thanks for your input.

My husband currently has an umbilical hernia AND an inguinal

My husband currently has an umbilical hernia AND an inguinal hernia. Because he also has cirrhosis of the liver, and has had ascites previously, surgeon will not recommend surgery to correct the hernias. The inguinal hernia is the most painful and drops into his scrotum many times a day. He is extremely uncomfortable most of the time. Besides the hernia briefs and trusses that he already uses, are there any other alternative treatments? He is 56 years old, was diagnosed with cirrhosis in 2005, umbilical hernia in 2012 and inguinal hernia in Aug 2013. He follows a low sodium diet, takes Spirolactone, Furesomide, Nadolol, Ropinirole, Synthroid, Pantoprazole, and Iron supplement daily. Also take Cipro and Vit D once a week.

I got my blood test results back and they showed my BUN/Creatinine

I got my blood test results back and they showed my BUN/Creatinine is 16, creatinine is 0.95 and GFR is 63. My doctor started me on amadolpine and I didn't react well to it. 10 days later they took my blood to check my potassium levels and my GFR had dropped 10 points. Is it possible that the medicine affected my test results? I have no symptoms of kidney failure.
