I have a long standing migraine problem. Recently I was prescribed Topamac and Rivotril (.5) by a neurologist and Divaa and Pexep by a general medicine specialist. Are these medicines safe, as they show a great deal of side-effects. I do not want to get addicted to them. Is there any alternative medicine?

Alternative medicine is changing your lifestyle and dietary habits. As you have rightly said these medicines will cause serious side effects and create new diseases you should have questioned your drs who you have visited. They are treating the symptoms and not the root cause. The cause is usually elsewhere. It is mostly in the gut. You have to find the trigger for migraine which varies from person to person you have to decide which medications you need to take .Discuss with both of your drs ask them about short term and long term side effects etc. You might be having certain nutrient deficiency also Take a consult after providing a feedback with name and contact number remember get educated and not medicated you cannot fix your health without fixing your diet.

Hello meenakshi. You are in morbid obese category { bmi 39.4}. It is very difficult to loose weight by diet and exercise in this category. If you do not try it seriously. I will end up requiring bariatric surgery for the same. As such high bmi is really detrimental for health in another 10 years to come.

You can not decide that you are having low sperm count with out doing semen analyasis test, You may be having low semen count (not low sperm count) and it may be due to anxiety not due to these medications Follow advise 1.Involvement in creative activites 2. Daily outing morning evening and spend some time with nature like in Park will certainly help consult for further management.

My wife is suffering from Plantar fasciitis She has gone through a lot of Physiotherapy but no improvement. Pain goes down as long as the physiotherapy effect is there. Now, Doctors have suggested Topaz Surgery. Just wanted to check how good is it? Any side effects? Will it come back again after the surgery. My wife is 50 years old. There is no other problem like diabetes or BP. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user, Thank you for contacting me. In physiotherapy for planter fascitis, ultrasound with stretching is done. Some modification in shoes and inserts can help. If this is not helping her you can go for surgery. Your answers regarding surgery can be given by surgeon. I hope this will help you.

Dear lybrate-user, None of the anti epileptic drugs are safe to use during pregnancy but are given in patients as the risk of getting seizures gets high. There are certain newer drugs like leveteracitam and Lamotrigine which are safer to use than those you are using and hence you should try to conceive and should consult your neurologist regarding changing the medicines once you conceive.

I am 24 year old ocdian suffering from ocd from past 10 years though a bit of small to moderate symptoms were present earlier also but they were not as intense as one's life would stop. I was on paxidep cr 62.5 mg for a long time and on oleanz 1.25 mg for 3 months last year in april but they were weight gaining medicine so my doctor prescribed topiramate 25-50 mg .I took it for 14 days and left oleanz as my wt was about 95 kg. I don't know what happened my nature of thoughts completely changed from then. My thoughts had started coming in a slow manner and they were resistant to any therapy I would practice. Also thoughts of guilt and compulsion which had stopped coming long back restarted again. I took paxidep for 5 more months along with buspin 15 mg for few months. But there was hardly any change I noticed in my condition. I realized that the medicines are hardly having any effect on me. So I stopped the medicines for about 50 days and I saw no change in my symptoms after withdrawal also. My doctor was not understanding my situation So I changed the doctor and they changed my medicines and even then my thoughts slowed down much more. Now when I am studying anything l learn is looking same as anything I don't remember. It's almost become impossible to study. My other concern is that my anxiety has fallen down rapidly after that topiramate incident. So What exactly has happened?

Please go for psychotherapy. You deserve to be happier and healthier. OCD is well managed trough psychotherapy. Also download or buy a book called Brain Lock and read it. Also do follow a healthier lifestyle - spend some time outdoors, eat a balanced and healthy diet including lots of water and fruits. These will nut treat you but help in your treatment. You do not have to suffer all your life. All the best.

Also I gained a lot of weight abruptly inspite of proper diet. Dan i saw a neurologist he prescribed me with topiramate for migraine. It has also become ineffective. N now i experience heat flashes, insomnia, depression, n inability to lose weight. Also i experience low blood pressure and kind of swelling or water retention all over the body.What is the possible cause for all this.Is there any hormonal problem or something else as I have gone through the thyroid test and it came normal.Please suggest wat tests should i get done?

Dear, get an eye test and uric acid test done from a proper place. Whatever problems you mentioned later, can be because of increase in weight and anxiety related to it. Check up with dietitian or nutritionist. For anxiety talk to counselor. You can talk to me on my personal forum.
