Concentraid review

Concentraid is a medication with a very specific use. It actually works by replacing, and thereby increasing, the antidiuretic hormone, which generates urine during sleep. This medication works by reducing the amount of water in the urine during sleep by re-absorbing water into the physical structure and is typically used to counter bedwetting. This medication unlike its predecessors, does not affect the blood pressure of the patients taking it.

Concentraid is also used to retain the water lost when a person suffers from Central Diabetes Insipidus, which is a disease characterized by uncontrollable and heavy voiding. It also helps release protein like the von Willebrand factor and factor VIII in patients with coagulation disorders like mild haemophilia.

In 2007, Concentraid nasal sprays were banned in the United States after 2 children died from an imbalance of sodium levels (Hyponatremia) caused by the sprays. The pills were deemed safe for healthy patients, specifically patients with no diseases connected with water retention and sodium. Be wary of unlicensed pharmacists still selling these nasal sprays. They were banned in 2007, and still had not been approved by 2008.

Because of this warning, doctors now understand that it is vital that patients stop taking Concentraid if they have a sickness that hinders their water retention. The flu, a cough, a cold, vomiting, diarrhoea, or even hot weather and thirst can be a bad combination with the medication if patients take too much. The fluid levels that decrease as you become sick could lead to a sodium imbalance in the physical structure, which is very serious. Extreme cases of sodium imbalance lead to death.

It is very important that you doctor be aware of your medical history. If the patient has a history of blood clotting, hypertension, fluid or nutrient imbalance, allergies, mineral disorders, vitamin imbalance, and kidney disorders they should inform their doctors immediately. It is also important to disclose any medications that you are currently taking to your doctor; it might clash with the Concentraid and have bad effects on your health. Medications like diuretics, blood medication, and laxatives usually interfere with Concentraid. Please disclose all prescription and over the counter medications you are taking to your doctor.

Some mild side effects that are virtually harmless still affect patients who choose to take Concentraid. These side effects include: cephalalgia, mild nausea, stomach cramps, chills, difficulty sleeping, pain in the genitals, and mild fever. In the event of an allergic reaction the patient will most likely experience a rash, itchy feelings, seizure, vomiting, skin edema and trouble breathing. If this occurs please seek immediate medical attention.

Concentraid is affected by alcohol, since alcohol affects a person’s ability to retain water. Please ask your doctor how much alcohol you can consume. Too much alcohol mixed with Concentraid will have negative effects on your health. Concentraid is marketed under the names Stimate, DDAVP, and Minirin. It is usually a small white tablet. Please take only as much as prescribed by your treating physician.
