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?

I was diagnosed with a small anal fissure. Dr said that it

I was diagnosed with a small anal fissure. Dr said that it was not deep but apparently it is making my internal sphincter remain tight therefore making bowel movements difficult. Not everything is coming out and causing hard stools occasionally. This fissure is not from constipation, I believe it was caused from having anal exam from gyno or some tortilla chips that i ate.My question is...I was given a compound of lydocain and nefidepine (sp?). He said this will heal the fissure. Will this also take care of the tight sphincter? Or will this just heal the fissure and I will be left with tight sphincter? Is this cream a cure or just a bandaid and I will always have tight sphincter now?

Hello, I had a colonoscopy yesterday early a.m. It was my fourth to date. This time they put me under a bit deeper with propofol as they were concerned about my movement causing bleeding (factor VIII deficiency). They explained they use a heavier dosethan normal, and that was why it took me so long to get my bearings during / after recovery. Day 1 had horrible sinus issues I attributed to the o2 and treated accordingly with Neti Pot and flonase (acted like i was around cats all day, constantly runningand sneezing). Day2 my side on the right has been hurting / aching and I have been very red in the face and neck, a bit blotchy, and tired. No fever. I look a bit sunburned and can feel the heat coming off of it. I have not been in the sun much in the past48 hours (or cold).

Also take note that I have a nuro-muscular disease : SMA type II.I do high blood pressure, treated with DIVOAN.I take Warfarine (Coumadin) because of a previous pulmonary embolysm.MY PROBLEM :I had to stop a sex intercourse because of a violent pain in the back of my head : 7-8/10After a couple of minutes the severe pain went away to let install a light pain at the back of my head and everywhere generaly.When in intercourse I was in a lying position, on my back, and since I can NOT move, it's my spouse that does every thing :)I am scared of a possible ruptured aneurysm or of a possible future ruptured aneurysm.What do you think of this ? The big pain started at 4:00AM and it is now 8:47PM and I repeat, the severe pain only lasted a couple of minutes.

Since last year I start having serious problem with my hands

Since last year I start having serious problem with my hands especially fingers. They are cold, often feel frozen. I will wake up with very cold hands and they will not get warmer for long time and doing sports in winter in Ottawa is big challenge nowsince they are so cold that I have intense pain. I tried different gloves but no help. In the past once I get warm in core of my body hands will also get warmer but not anymore. I love winter sports but because of this condition I cannot do it anymore - thisyear I will go back home after 15-20 min sinc efrozen hands will cause intense pain. Thanks, Miro.

. I'm curious about my cardiovascular health. My average

Hello.I'm curious about my cardiovascular health. My average heart rate is always low (appox 48 to 55 beats per minute, like that of an athlete!) However, I never exercise and probably a stone over weight. Also, my bp fluctuates from normal to border line high. My diastolic is always above normal (80 to 90). I have a cardio plethysmograph which shows normal vasodilation and eccentric constriction and no ectopic beats. My last ECG was also normal along with aortic blood pressure. Cholesterol was 5.2 and all other bloods normal.Might there be anything to worry about? And is there any further tests you would recommend?There is heart disease in my family. I suffer from moderate depression/anxiety and don't have the drive to exercise.Thank you.
