  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • after a number of years suffering with the burning I stopped taking medicine and no more burning. I went on Efra really armour and no more pain in throat. I moved and had to see another doctor and he would not let me stay on the efra. I was on it for 8 years and no problems. He put me on trosint and my throat is burning again. What is in the T4 tat is causing this. Is it the sodium? Thank you for any help.

    Thank you,
    Diane

  • My mom was admitted to a nursing home 2-weeks ago before that she was held over at the hospital 13 days, meds was changed, Aricept removed and Detrol she had a staff MD. her primary care md passed away 3 years ago. He put her on her meds and tooked good care of her. She has not been without a primary md but he does not practice outside his offices. Mom had a good mental status did removing Aricept/Detrol trigger bad symptoms?
