Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- How many/what percentage of older males who have had a stroke, have another while taking uloric?
Concerned as my Rheumatologist wants me to start using Uloric40 mg and while I see that their is a relatively small incidence of stroke occurring (unless you are part of the "small" group); I have been unable to locate statistics for those previous stroke patients that are now using or have used Uloric, and had another stroke.
- Has anybody had multi lobar pneumonia from reaction to methotrexate?
Bilateral multilobar pneumonia - rheumatologist considers it was caused by a reaction to methotrexate I was taking for ankylosing spondylitis and I was lucky to survive. Anyone have this and later shown to have scarring of the lungs?
- Has anyone had problems with blood work eg. elevated levels of lymphocytes?
Had further blood work done and nothing showed up? tested for viral infections mono hiv cmv toxoplasmosis all neg. surface immunophenotyping by flow cytometry done nothing there any answers here?
- Is it safe to take pravastin while on remicade?
I have just started on Remicade and this drug scares the heck out of me! However it is being used as a last resort as no other medications were bring my ulcerative colitis under control I am very concerned about drug interactions and can't seem to get any straight answers from my doctor or the pharmacist. My main concern right now is can I safely take Pravastian due to being on Remicade? My cholesterol is very high.

- Pain meds that cause insomnia
I currently take 7.5 mg of Vicoprofen for pain for my Anklyosing Spondylitis. I have tried Vicodin and Norco previously, but nothing worked as well as the Vicoprofen. I have never had to up my dosage and I am still getting the same level of relief as I was when I first started it over a year and a half ago. I swear by the Vicoprofen and would recommend it to anyone who has any type of related pain, but, there is one downfall. Every time I take my pain meds I get a huge burst of energy. My pain is usually worst at night, so I have no choice but to take it before bed. More times than not it causes me to suffer extreme insomnia, which is no fun. Up until recently I just suffered through it. I went and saw my primary today and told her about the issues and she suggested I try Trazodone to help ease my mind so I can fall asleep easier and faster. I'm really hoping it works because I don't want to have to switch pain meds because they work so well, but I can't go much longer only getting 2-3 hours of sleep during the week.
I will wrote another review in a week or so regarding my experience taking the Trazodone with the Vicoprofen.
- Humira: my experience
I have had some form of arthritis probably since birth. My father and maternal grandfather had some form of arthritis. I began to realize pain in both ankles if I stood or walked too long.
I began taking many NSAIDs when I was around 22. I've done gold, prednisone (twice), plaquenil, butazoidin, sulfasalazine, etc. My best results came with methotrexate after I got cellulitis in my knee (scratch it while kayaking in the summer, fiberglass boat). It dropped my sed rate from over 100 to 35 or so within a few months. I continued with MTX from 1977 to 2000 when my MD suggested Enbrel and stopping MTX. That was a VERY bad decision. Enbrel appeared to mask the disease for a few years. I had my left MCP replaced in 2004, my right heel debrided in 2010, and both my TMJs replaced in 2012. I strongly believe that if I had kept with the MTX it would have delayed those changes. Additionally, in 2011 I was in a bus crash returning from RAGBRAI. I got knocked out from three to six minutes. I had a nasty concussion that lasted 2+ years. Towards the end of the third year post accident I started exercising more aggressively. After doing several 40, 50, and 60 miles rides, I took a leisurely 50 mile ride around Boston at night. Two days later I had a spinal edema. So much for biking and other active sports! :-(
I have continued with MTX. Late 2013 my MD increased my MTX to .8/week. I had been taking .6/week. I stopped taking Enbrel and switched to Humira in early 2014. I took it for a few months before my doc and I realized it was not doing any better than Enbrel. I tried Humira for three months but it did not seem to work any better than Enbrel. In early June I stopped Humira and waited a few weeks before I started Otezla. I stopped Oterzla on 9/15/14 because it made me depressed and allowed my morning stiffness to get much worse.
I started prednisone again from the start of July. By mid-August I told my MD that I was screaming louder than I ever had; my dog was very startled. I stopped it gradually over the next two weeks. Meanwhile, the Otezla made me feel awful.
My MD is going to get me onto another injectable that I take monthly. I forget its name.
