I take Propranolol (beta blocker) and Proamatine (alpha agonist).

I take atenolol, clonidine, Topimax, morphine, Mestinon, Paxil, Robinul,

Then as needed: visatril, Zofran, Chloral hydrate, Ditropan,

I've been on massive doses on the first 2 drugs.

Since starting on the Chloral hydrate a month ago, I've been able to cut back on my paxil, morphine, ambien and doxepin. -Deb

jennifer -

you're right that there have been a good number of posts on this over time, and you will find lots of info if you do a search (if you haven't already), but i don't think i've ever actually answered one of these posts myself so figured i'd give you my med list. it's pretty lengthy but know that i have definitely not always been on so many meds. i've had times where i was on no meds & just did lots of fluids & salt. but currently, copied from the list i typed up recently to give to my new docs (includes med, dose, frequency, & reason)...

Mestinon 30mg TID (every 4-5 hrs while awake) AN/OI/Hypotension

Inderal/Propranolol 10mg TID (every 4-5 hours while awake) AN/OI/Tachycardia

Midodrine 10mg TID (every 4-5 hours while awake) AN/OI/Hypotension

Cortef 15mg in AM, 5mg @ 4pm Cortisol Deficiency

Clarinex 5mg daily (AM) Allergies

Protonix 40mg daily (AM) Reflux/Nausea

DDAVP .2mg daily (PM) Help Regulate Fluid Retention

Seasonale 1pill daily (PM) OI/ Ovarian Cysts

Zelnorm 6mg BID (AM&PM) Slow GI Motility (Gastroparesis, Constipation, etc)

Flonase (spray) BID (AM&PM) Allergies

Reglan 10mg PRN Gastroparesis/Nausea/Vomiting

Mesalamine (enema) 4g PRN (PM) Ulcerative Colitis

i also use various shampoos, creams, etc. for skin problems i have but think there's more than enough listed already.

other "stuff" currently used includes intermittant catheterization 2-4 times/day, lots of fluids (water, gatorade) & salt, compression hose (30-40mmHg waist high) whenever possible (i.e. when not too hot), wheelchair PRN, & IV saline PRN.

you'd never guess that i hate taking meds, eh? but they keep me functioning these days MUCH better than i would be otherwise.

As needed

Reglan 5mg (gastroparesis)

pheregan (nausea) or zofran (nausea)

Right now:

propranolol 10 mg 3X day (heart rate and fluid retention)

midodrine 5 mg as needed (usually 1/day in late AM or early pm) (low BP)

protonix 40 mg/ day (acid reflux)

9000 mg sodium/day (fluid retention for low blood volume)

LOTS of water/gatorade

compression hose

B-12, ibuprofen, acidophilus, pepto bismol as needed (IBS, chronic tendonitis, and B-12 cuz I'm vegan)

I'll probably be on DDAVP soon- it was discussed recently, but we're trying the salt/fluids cuz it's lots cheaper! Procrit was also discussed, because not much is working to build up the blood volume.
