From this study (3 weeks ago):
Prior to taking Symbicort for asthma, I was on Advair and have been for as long as its been around. 10+years? Is Symbicort attributable to RLS? I am currently doing iron infusions x 5 over a 2 week period for low level iron @40. I was down to low level 5 in Oct, hospitalized with iron infusions. Currently the RLS, foot cramps, and leg cramps keep me awake most of the night. I am lucky to get 4 hrs sleep. Thanks for the website!
From this study (13 months ago):
after 2 days of taking bactrim ds. My nipples started burning. could this be a reaction.
From this study (1 year ago):
Went through every type of heart condition monitoring and testing to diagnose and could not find anything wrong other than the electrical signal being screwed up. 2nd degree AV block diagnosed with out cause other than the fact that it occurred shortly after being hospitalized for Bactrim induced drug fever with multi-system organ involvement. Lucky to be alive. I can"t believe how sick this drug has made me and resulted in the need to get a pacemaker to get my heart back to pre-Bactrim normal rhythm.
