Actiq Dehydration Causes and Reviews


When you're dehydrated, your body doesn't have enough fluid and electrolytes to work properly. An average person on an average day needs about 3 quarts of water. But if you're out in the hot sun or are exercising a lot, you need a lot more than that. You can also become dehydrated if you are vomiting, have diarrhea, or are sweating a lot. People who are elderly, very young, taking certain medications, or have a chronic illness have a greater risk.

Signs of Dehydration in adults include

  • Being thirsty
  • Urinating less often than usual
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Dry skin
  • Feeling tired
  • Dizziness and fainting

Signs of Dehydration in babies and young children include a dry mouth and tongue, crying without tears, no wet diapers for 3 hours or more, a high fever and being unusually sleepy or drowsy.

If you think you're dehydrated, drink small amounts of water over a period of time. Drinking too much all at once can overload your stomach and make you throw up. If you are exercising in the heat and losing a lot of minerals in sweat, sports drinks can be helpful. Avoid any drinks that have caffeine.

Actiq Dehydration Reviews

Fri, 20 Aug 2010
My mom, aged 77, just completed her 3rd ipi infusion Wed 8/18. It started in her lungs. Brain metastisis with removal of one tumor June 9, 2010. 4-5 small tumors still. She's not 100% mentally alert, but she tells us the pain from the tumors on her upper thign feel like blistering sunburn. She has not been eating lately, only drinking boost. Her oncologist is treating the pain on her legs wtih lidocaine patches and that seems to help. She also has a fentanyl patch on her arm and uses Actiq 'lollipops's for pain control.
