Have you been diagnosed with drug induced Lupus ?


!0 years ago began having problem with elevated blood pressure. Was treated with the usually prescribed meds. Within the past ten years I have had a variety of unusual and often preplexing symptoms that the doctors couldn't find good answers for. Lots of guesses and lots of unsuccessful treatments and increased frustration and misery until recently. The diagnosis is drug induced Lupus and it is believed to be caused by my blood pressure meds. Bingo. The symptoms have developed over the same period I've been on the meds. My question is: Any known effective alternatives for Blood Pressure Control? Anyone else with Lupus have bizarre skin and hair folllicle issues? Any one know a reputable doctor in Kansas City Missouri to advise on alternative treatments? Any one know of a web site to purchase alternative B/P treatments that you or someone you know have had personal experience with? Are there suggestions for a great support website for Lupus?

Hi WIngsOfGrace

Here are some ideas to heal the issue. Also learning about detoxifying the blood by doing colon and liver cleanses will change your health forever.

Cause
Food allergies (there is a 100 percent correlation between lupus and food allergies), rheumatoid arthritis, other connective tissue diseases, parasites, candidiasis, bowel problems, and digestive enzyme deficiencies can create symptoms that mimic or exacerbate SLE. Migraines, epilepsy, and psychoses must also be ruled out before a proper course of treatment can be decided upon.

Both forms of lupus primarily strike young women (90% of cases) and young children.

The drugs hydralazine, procainamide, and beta blockers can cause false-positive readings of SLE, and can also produce a lupus-like condition that disappears when the drugs are no longer taken. Birth control pills and environmental stresses can also exacerbate lupus symptoms.

Natural Cures

Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet. Also avoid overeating and limit your intake of dairy, beef products, and polyunsaturated oils. Also screen for food allergies and avoid all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Increase your intake of vegetables, especially green, yellow, and orange, and consume non-farm-raised fish several times a week.

Herbs: Supplementation with Swedish bitters with each meal can increase hydrochloric acid production. Also drink an infusion of nettle twice a day. Other useful herbs include echinacea, goldenseal, licorice, pau d`arco, and red clover

Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.

Hyperthermia: Hyperthermia involves artificially creating fever in the body for the purpose of boosting immune function. Hyperthermia can be a highly effective method of eliminating toxins and heavy metals, as well as infectious bacteria and viruses that cannot survive in elevated body temperatures.

*Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy or hyperthermia treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

Juice Therapy: Drink the juice of carrot, celery, flaxseed oil, black currant oil, and garlic.

Nutritional Supplementation: Hydrochloric acid (HCL) deficiency is common in people with lupus, therefore HCL supplements with each meal is advised. Other useful nutrients include vitamin A with beta carotene, vitamin C and bioflavonoids, vitamin B complex, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, essential fatty acids, proteolytic enzymes taken away from meals, digestive enzymes taken with meals, and the amino acids L-cysteine, L-methionine, and L-cystine.

Topical Treatment: PABA cream applied topically can help ease symptoms.

Best of health to you  (+ info)

How to stop drug induced flashbacks?


Does anyone have a way to temporarily relieve drug-induced flashbacks?
----------

No, unfortunately there are no ways to relieve drug related flashbacks. In some cases the drugs which cause them have altered brain chemistry, and there's nothing you can do about that. As a rule, the longer you are off the drugs the less likely you are to experience them. Some drugs just take longer to leach out of the body, and the effect can hang around for years. It's just a matter of recognizing what is happening and learning to take control back. In cases where there has been psychological addiction, you are dealing with a learned reaction of the body, which has learned to associate pleasure with the drug, and in some folks just thinking about the high is enough to start the ball rolling. But as there is no way to predict when a flashback will occur, there's no way to interfere. Sorry, but drug related flashbacks are just something a former addict has to wait out.  (+ info)

Can alcohol and drug induced hepatitis be spread through saliva to another person?


My little grandaughter receives kisses from someone who was just diagnosed with alcohol induced hepatitis. I'm worried about him giving her kisses. Should I be worried that she might catch hepatitis from him? Serious answers please!
----------

No, as was mentioned -- it should be noted that while 'hepatitis' is most notably known as a liver *disease* that is often chronic.. (With B and C).. any system with the suffix 'itis' means inflammation of the system.

This cannot be spread, because there is nothing to spread. Sort of like how hypertensive kidney failure cannot be spread.

Just as a follow up there are vaccinations for two types of viral hepatitis.. and are recommended if anyone is involved in a high risk environment.  (+ info)

Has anyone ever heard of drug induced autoimmune hepatitis?


I have recently been diagnosed with something called minocycline induced hepatitis with autoimmune tendencies. I took a mild antibiotic (minocycline) for acne for about 3 years which caused hepatitis. The odd thing is that it caused autoimmune hepatitis which took forever to diagnose. It's supposed to be very rare but I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it or have heard of someone having it. It doesn't have to be caused by minocycline though because I had a bad flair up after taking amoxicillin.
----------

Check it out on the Web MD. If this was Caused by the Prescription Drug that you took, you should See A Lawyer about Suing the Manufacturer!!!! No Joke! Hepatitis is Nothing to Play with it affects your liver. That's why they call it " The Liver" without proper Liver Function ---- you Die. Not to say that you have been effected that Seriously, but it is better to be Safe than Sorry. Check out the " Side Effects" of the Medication! If your " Condition" is not Listed, you will have a Major Lawsuit against that Manufacturer! Be safe, Check it out as soon as possible.  (+ info)

If someone did harm to you when you are in a drug induced sleep such as break your arm, can you feel the pain?


Drug induced meaning tylenol not any illegal drugs. Like given a little too much tylenol.
Or just in plain sleep, could you still feel the pain?
----------

Any safe amount of Tylenol will not produce that effect. Besides, it's not the Tylenol that induces sleep, it's the Diphenhydramine in the Tylenol PM that induces sleep. But again, a safe amount of that will not produce the effect either.

Yes, in regular sleep you can still feel pain.  (+ info)

How long does drug-induced lupus last?


I found out that I have drug-induced lupus a week ago. I am dealing with joints pain, low fever, and such.

wondering if any of you have that experience will like to hear from you.
thanks
----------

I have Lupus and APS. Please be happy yours is drug induced. Once that drug is out of your system you should be fine again.

Drug-induced lupus is a form of lupus caused by medications. Many different drugs can cause drug-induced lupus. Symptoms are similar to those of SLE (arthritis, rash, fever, and chest pain) and they typically go away completely when the drug is stopped. The kidneys and brain are rarely involved.  (+ info)

How do I deal with a drug induced coma?


Im so sleepy and tired from my Paxil. I cant even get out of the house to get caffeine. Any tips wise ones?
----------

Well that's not actually a coma (you'd be out cold and not typing) That's some pretty serious fatigue though, more than I've heard from Paxil before. First, make sure you are not taking anything that is exacerbating the fatigue (like Tylenol PM or NyQuil) and that you are not drinking any alcohol. If it's this bad, call your doctor up or maybe the assistance line on you insurance card if you have one.  (+ info)

Will I get drug induced pychosis if I try getting high off cough syrup one time?


Will I get a psychotic disorder if i try cough syrup once. 300 mg of cough syrup?
Or do I have to be abusing DXM to get drug induced psychosis?
----------

You're not gonna get high off cough medicine, trust me, I've taken alot of drugs in my time.. Not one of them was worth it in hindsight..
It's like asking if you'll get high off smoking a cigarette. (No)  (+ info)
