  • Vasculitis caused by gabapentin
    i also take but didnt have such symptom till recent; however, such could be due to gabapentin 1800 mg/d.
    also was suing at the time topamac 100 mg amitriptyline 50 mg, metoprolol 25 mg HCTZ 25 mg,Proventil inh etc.,OTC Tylenol aspirin and vitamins. Been on gabapentin about 15 months but on other meds more than 5 yrs. on and off.

    Since more than 10 weeks I developed 1 to 2 inches across reddish areas on feet and ankles not raised , and slightly dotted;total about 4 or 5 on each foot and ankle.,that dont itch or ache, dont seem to grow or subside w any cream like HC. showed to doctor,said to observe.Basic screening tests were neg,but perhaps needs more testing. We discussed possiblility of bites from various things but I doubt that.
  • Remicade overview/side effects
    Very powerful drug felt fine the first week second week was a different story.
  • Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
    It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.

    Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.

    This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
  • High potassium blood levels caused by vitamin d3
    I have Parkinson's and fell and broke my hip. Otherwise I have good health. While checking my blood, the doctor was extremely concerned that my potassium levels were above 5.0 and wanted to take rather drastic measures to correct it. Since I have no other symptoms, I was resistant. In the meantime, I thought I saw a study that said vitamin D supplementation could cause a false positive reading on potassium. I was taking 5000 units of D a day for over a year. I stopped taking it while I was in the hospital and the blood level potassium began to normalize.

    I need the vitamin D and need to find out if it is truly detrimental or an illusion .
  • Tecfidera and psychosis
    When our 31 year old daughter with Multiple Sclerosis started the 120 mg of Tecfidera, we noticed that she started becoming chatty-- talking more that usual. After a week on the lower 120 mg, she started on the higher 240 mg dosage. Her chatter increased significantly. By the second day on the higher dosage of Tecfidera, she was becoming completely out of control with excessive talking. She could not stop. We ended the Tecfidera 240 mg after two days and did not go back to the lower dosage. Her ability to sleep was diminishing on the lower dosage. By the time she reached the normal 240 mg, she stopped sleeping altogether. Even with taking 2 Tylenol PM, it didn't phase her. She could not sleep. We informed her neurologist and he prescribed the sleep aid Clonazepam 0.25 mg. Taking two tablets allowed her to sleep 7 hours--- but then she became completely Manic showing all the symptoms of Psychosis. There is no previous Bi-Polar/Manic in her history or in her family's history. Two days off the Tecifidera, she has become argumentative and combative. She is angry and impatient. This behavior is completely opposite of her normal behavior. The has always been one of the sweetest people on the planet. Any suggestions to help her get off this Psychosis episode??

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Added estradiol taken orally 5.5 weeks ago*, and gingival hyperplasia began 4 weeks ago. All other meds/vits had been ongoing for a long time before that.
    Previously, estradiol was taken vaginally and is "non-systemic", therefore.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I am waiting for my 2nd revision (3rd attempt) to a supposed routine hip replacement on a 40 year old woman. We found out after the second attempt that as they put it "my bones were just too soft to hold the screws in place, even though I was keeping correct alignment, my bones were just soft." I said like osteoporosis???! They said no, no! Just. soft, like wet wood, from severe arthritis. You think someone would check this before surgery? Right? I don't know.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I have a history of pituitary brain tumors (one as an infant, surgically removed and treated with chemo, and one at the age of 7 treated through radiation). I had another brain tumor (miningeoma behind the eye nerves) that has led to these latest bouts of headaches and my rethinking of my health. I have always struggled with weight and am on every hormone replacement due to the effect on my pituitary. I am currently on a mostly vegan diet, which I have generally enjoyed but am starting to reevaluate.
