Has anyone out there taken Tegretol and suffered from sleep paralysis as a result??

January 31st, 2013

I suffered with horrible sleep paralysis while taking Tegretol (Carbemazapine) and now that I don’t take Tegretol I suffer with a special kind of sleep apnea (central apnea) that is usually brought on by brain trauma or drugs/medication. I am trying to determine if they are all connected….the Tegretol, Sleep paralysis and central apnea. Any serious reply would be greatly appreciated.

Dear "tubby"
I was on tegretol at one point but soon after I started to develop these strange spasms and odd muscle spasms during the night. Shortly thereafter I started to get seizures. They are not epilepsy or gran mal. They are now being called "stress seizures". But to me it is way too coincidental that this started when I was on Tegretol. I dont have difinitive answers, I really wish I did. I hate to see someone else suffering. I woudl recommend you do a search for adverse effects to Tegretol. This is a good start here and I really do hope you get some answers. I am sorry I couldn’t offer you more help or better hard proof. I’m sorry that you are going through this. I sincerely hope that you feel better soon and get the best treatment possible for your apnea. One thing to keep in mind is a sleep study.

Enrollment First, Inc. and Aeroflow Partner for Convenient Sleep Apnea Testing and Education

January 17th, 2013

Enrollment First, Inc. and Aeroflow Partner for Convenient Sleep Apnea Testing and Education














Asheville, NC (PRWEB) January 15, 2013

Enrollment First, Inc. provides businesses with affordable, custom-made insurance enrollment options, specifically those businesses with unique insurance needs, such as trucking. We recognize common health threats to drivers, specifically sleep apnea, which can lead to fatal accidents and increasing healthcare costs. Together with Aeroflow, Enrollment First is launching new sleep apnea education and testing solutions.

Sleep apnea is a form of sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) occurs when the muscles of the throat relax obstructing the airway. The airway obstruction causes the level of oxygen in the blood to fall, increases stress levels on the heart, elevates blood pressure, and prevents the person from entering REM sleep (the restful and restorative stage of sleep). Risk factors that significantly increase the occurrence of OSA include being overweight (BMI of 30 or greater), large neck size (17’’ or greater for men and 16’’ or greater for women), smoking and alcohol use, and family history of OSA. Additionally, there are key symptoms associated with OSA that include loud snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, disturbed sleep (i.e. waking frequently gasping for air), and frequent morning headaches.

Aeroflow Healthcare provides a turn-key solution for screening, testing, treatment, and compliance management of sleep disorders specially designed for members of the transportation industry. Utilizing in-home diagnostic sleep testing and telemedicine appointments allows for drivers to be tested and set-up on treatment with minimal to no time at all spent out of their truck. The partnership between Aeroflow and Enrollment First will allow the thousands of Enrollment First clients direct access to Aeroflow’s services giving owner operators the same level of high quality health care that W-2 drivers receive through employee benefit packages.

Enrollment First, Inc. is a compassionate leader in the healthcare industry. We have more than 10 years of experience providing health insurance options for independent contractors. We can even test members for sleep apnea at truck stops – saving money, time and potential lives. We are the insurance solution behind sleep apnea, and partnering with Aeroflow will further consolidate and speed up the process. Hazen Mirts, President and CEO of Enrollment First, says “We understand the concerns of independent contractors and have real solutions for their needs. We care about a healthy America – that’s why we offer flexible, comprehensive wellness programs and meet you where you are – at the truck stop, in the cab, or even in your home.”

Measures are being taken to ensure that drivers receive helpful and thorough information to protect themselves and others from danger on the road. Sleep Disorder education and a simple screening on sleep disorder probability are the first steps. Then, convenient in-home and in-truck sleep tests that are overseen by a Board Certified Sleep MD provide ease and efficiency. Finally, the program is designed to handle follow-up and ensure compliance with sleep therapy. Enrollment First looks forward to this venture with Aeroflow in sleep apnea education, testing and care.

How often should a person get a complete blood count and why?

January 17th, 2013

I am 53, male, former smoker(I smoked for 19 years and quit in 1992). I do not drink.

I have epilepsy(since 1966), Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease(since birth), essential non-pulmonary hypertension, gastro-esophageal disease, BPH, complex central sleep apnea.

Could you please cite your sources for your answer, i.e., National Institute of Health, American Heart Association, etc. Thank you

Everyone is unique and no one person is the same, so as their health. There is no specific guidelines to how often should the physician check your CBC. Your physician will determine the frequency according to your need. The decision will mainly be affected by your current health (more ill, more frequent), your medication and the physician preference. There is some recommendation to some medication of how often should the physician check your blood work (may not be CBC). Also some physician like to check it more frequently than others.

If you really want to know, you should ask your primary physician, s/he know your health the best.

Is sleep apnea ever a problem for people who don’t sleep on their back?

January 3rd, 2013

It is common (or possible) to suffer from sleep apnea if you only sleep on your stomach or side?

I’ve been diagnosed with combination of obstructive/central sleep apnea more than 4 years ago. The short answer to your question is yes. It is a problem even if you don’t sleep on your back. However I am having less episodes of apnea when I am not sleeping on my back.
