Swelling of abdomen with constipation while on stelazine and artane

My dad has been taking stelazine  and Artane for sometime now. He took it about 24hours ago, his stomach hasswollen up and he has constipation. He has tremors on his hands and he is really belching which is smelling. He is still lucid although his speech is slurred. What can I do to alleviate his pain


This could be the side effects of Above drugs. They can cause severe form of constipation known as Paralytic ileus. In addition, it can cause tremors. Abdominal swelling and constipation are dangerous signs, you need to act quickly. Therefore, your father need emergency medical attention.

Twitching below eyelid

My lower eyelid/nerve has been twitching for 5 days.. Can anyone tell me the cause for this? And help help with a remedy as well.

This can be a tic (form of involuntary muscle movement). It will come when you are anxious. If it is associated with other neurological problems or early morning vomiting, you need to get investigated. If it is not then tics are not harmful. If it is troublesome botox is the treatment choice.

Appendicitis sickness

  • I was wondering since it said ask a question, about the appendicitis sickness, I feel like I have it, I just told my mom (who is a nurse) about my suspicions, I am also on my period and she thinks its that, could it just be that or do I have appendicitis? (I've also felt the pains when I'm not on my cylce.)


    • Appendicitis pain is usually felt in right lower abdomen and it  is usually associated with fever. Your right lower abdomen should also be tender on palpation. It is difficult to say what i is without actually seeing you.

Second opinion on child with cough for 5 weeks

  • My 4year old has a constant cough for 5 weeks now,have inhaler,have steroids and antibiotics,been to the doctors 5 times this month,its causing him discomfort,and probably his diaphragm,just looking for a second opinion,and how can i stop it from causing him upset.

    • I think he need to be examined thoroughly with investigations such as Chest X Ray to determine a cause. Sometimes acute bronchitis may last for sometime.
