From this study (1 week ago):
Never a clot but newly prescribed medicine Pristiq and I have Factor V, Type 1 Diabetes, high cholesterol and use a fentanyl patch and these were all warnings on Pristiq. I take wellbutrin 300 and Zoloft and Prozac didn't work.
I see an endocrinologist, neurologist, family practice, pain management. My depression is because of pain. I've only been to one pain doctor and I must have a tolerance to opiates. I've tried oxycodone 15mg x many, dilaudid 8 mg x many, morphine 30 x many, Opana Er x many. Not all at once and always take prescribed amount but it never works. Been prescribed the same garbage for 6 years and have had pain epidurals and radio frequency ablations. Was pretty exited about laser surgery and then I was told they don't take my insurance when I have a BCBS PPO
I'm afraid doctors like me psychiatrist don't look atoll my medical history before prescribing things like Pristiq.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I'm Agoraphobic and don't leave my house so unable to attend GP or local hospital to have this investigated.
I'm morbidly obese - due to combination of drugs listed above and which have known side effects of weight gain (not due to diet) I don't eat fried food or red meat and eat plenty of fresh fruit.
I'm panic-stricken this might be Paget's disease of the breast. I've been trying to research via the Internet but my symptoms don't seem to fit anything - not Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Eczema, Rash, but has similarities to Paget's. I can't find any sign of a lump in either breast but don't know what this redness and 'spreading' of it is on my left nipple and areola.
From this study (2 months ago):
I take Prozac for depression, Atenolol Chlorthalidone for hypertension, and Valium as needed for stress. I also Vasovagal when stressed, which is becoming more frequent as I get older. Can I take a Valium in preparation for stressful situations, or does that exacerbate my tendency to Vasovagal under stress?
