Anticholinergic Overview

Anticholinergics (anticholinergic agents) are substances that block the action of the acetylcholine (ACh) neurotransmitter at synapses in the central and peripheral nervous system. These agents inhibit the parasympathetic nervous system by selectively blocking the binding of ACh to its receptor in nerve cells.

Red spots from Incruse Ellipta and milk allergy?

I am taking Incruse Ellipta 62.5mcg inhaler (1 puff by mouth per day). It makes me have red blood spots on both arms. I am allergic to milk. Could this have a milk-based inactive ingredient in it? ## Hi Faye - According to the manufacturer's prescribing information document (PDF - page 21), it states that the inactive ingredients are: - lactose monohydrate (contains milk proteins) - magnesium stearate Being allergic to milk, you could very well be having a reaction and should let you doctor know asap. Any rash / hives / swelling are all listed as more serious side effects. I hope this helps and best wishes!

COPD Plus Hepatitis

Hi. I was wondering if anybody with hep-c also has c.o.p.d? I've recently been diagnosed. I have geno-3. I'm 64yrs old, feel totally confused. My dr isn't very clued up on hep-c and is not much help at all. I feel that doing treatment for hvc would be just too hard with breathing issues. Thanks. P.s. - The Atrovent puffer is now giving me urine retention. (great)

Diphen Atropine Tab

My doctor refused to refill this Rx for diphen atropine for 6 weeks. I have been taking this med for about 6-7 years now. It is the ONLY med that lets me lead a normal life without explosive diarrhea. If I don't take it, and I have to have a bowel movement, I have about 2 minutes to find a restroom. I usually don't make it and that is a mess. No warning at all. He finally renewed my prescription but wants me to have an Upper GI. How long can you take diphen atropine? Does it CAUSE intestinal problems to make an upper GI necessary? Please help me. Thank you. I have been diagnosed with IBS for about 16 years now. ## Diphenoxylate with Atropine is normally used to treat severe cases of diarrhea. The problem that arises from such prolonged use of it is that your body becomes depende...

Atropine dosage for excess saliva

I need info on the actual dosage of atropine for treating excess saliva. ## Is there any significant side effect of atropine meant to prevent excess saliva secretion? ## I want to know if I can safely use Atropine Sulfate as a treatment for excessive saliva? Does it have sulfa in it? I am allergic to sulfa. Also, is it safe to use under the tongue? ## It can depend on the person and their tolerance of the medication and what the effective dosage is for them. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and heat intolerance. Carolyn, are you allergic to sulfa, or sulphur?

belladonna alk & phenobarbital

This stuff is impossible to find yet there are much stronger meds available. This is great for uncomfortable muscle spasms say if you're weaning off opiates - the belladonna at health food stores is not the same obviously. Donnatal is great for that too. Anyway, closest thing I've found is bentyl but it's not as helpful for all over discomfort - just stomach trouble when weaning - cold turkey you'll want clonidine too (aka catpres), something to allow you to sleep (God knows you can't sleep getting off stuff) - the more you sleep, the more time passes - but you can't sleep when you're stomach is A MESS, pains etc. And the all over body crawly antsy - can't explain unless you've been through - it'll make someone crazy! Depression follows and anyone...
