  • Is there a support group in the us for people with insulinomas? (1 answer)
    SUPPORT GROUP IN UNITED STATES!!!

    Hi, the only support group that I've been able to find for people with insulinomas is located in the UK... just wondering if there is one in the US. I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
    I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!
  • Is namenda , neurotin and gabapentin all the same drug?
    I just can't remember if these drugs I've listed are the same drug, I need to find out to make sure some one is not getting the wrong meds. Thank you
  • Have people on pravstatin experienced muscle cramps on the same level as those taking zocor?
    experience severe thigh cramps often when using Zocor.

    afraid to start using pravastatin and wonder if pravastatin would cause the same
  • How does aricept compare to exelon for diarrea side effect?
    When I was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2009 I started on Aricept. After I reached the 10mg. dose I had a very severe case of diarrhea. I want to try a medicine approach again and hope to later add Namenda. I again have started Aricept. If the diarrhea problem with Aricept repeats,should I try Exelon? Are both Aricept and Exelon equally effective treatments?

  • Allopurinol and muscle cramps
    Approximately 5 years ago I developed gout and my physician prescribed allopurinol. After a period of time I began to have muscle spasms in the calves of my legs at night. My doctor gave me a prescription for restless leg syndrome, which helped for a short time. I was then given a different prescription when that one no longer helped, and finally a third prescription, which did not work either. The cramps continued to grow more severe and more frequent. I was also having extremely severe cramps in my left hand, to the point that I could not straighten my fingers for several excruciating minutes. Although the cramps in my calves had lessened significantly, my toes were starting to cramp severely.



    I stopped taking allopurinol about a month ago, and since then I realized that my hands and toes were cramping less and less, and now it is almost completely gone. I inadvertently stopped the allopurinol and I lost the bottle of pills and didn't realize it until I went to refill my pill box that holds a month's supply divided into daily doses. I searched on the internet and found that muscle problems are not uncommon for some people taking allopurinol.
