Hi everybody. I have an interesting question since my last post where I was seemingly suffering from possible Augmentation to Pramipoxil (is that spelled correctly!?)
For the last couple of weeks I have also had a recurring problem with Labrynthitus (an imbalance of the inner ear) causing me to have sleepless nights and wasted days due to feeling very off balance (remember when you were young and had way too much to drink and the room span!) and a real feeling of nausea. I lost this entire last week end due to it so went to the doctors today who diagnosed me with concave ear drums caused possibly by a cold or blocked sinuses and a viral infection in my inner ear resulting in my imbalance. He has prescribed Prochlorperazine which combats the room spinning and nausea affects but can't get rid of the virus, only time (2 to 3 weeks) will do that. My wife looked this up and it is described as follows-
Prochlorperazine (Compazine, Stemzine, Buccastem, Stemetil, Phenotil) is a dopamine (D2) receptor antagonist that belongs to the phenothiazine class of antipsychotic agents that are used for the antiemetic treatment of nausea and vertigo. It is also a highly potent typical antipsychotic, 10-20x more potent than chlorpromazine. It is also used to treat migraine headaches. Intravenous administration can be used to treat status migrainosus.
Has anybody any idea if this drug works for RLS as surely it is in the same category as pramipoxil and I wonder if it will help with my RLS or conversely should I be taking both. The doctor knew I am on Pramipoxil so it no doubt is ok but just wondered if any body had any info.
Sorry for the very long thread!!!!!!!
