- Double vision on levothyroxine
Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.
- Caused by azathioprine (3 responses)
I started taking Azathioprine in 2003, and almost immediately started having very strange skin conditions, strange chronic rashes, etc. I also developed strange, tiny bumps on my palms and soles of my feet; which are extremely prominent after exposure to water. My father started taking this drug as well, for a different condition, and coincidentally developed the same spots on his hands at the same time. There is absolutely no history of this in the family and we both started the medication at the same time, and experienced the same results. We are both no longer taking this medication for these reasons, and still have this condition as a memory. I am very upset.
- Allopurinol for 6-mp metabolism to 6-tgn
I began taking Allopurinol 100mg to help metabolize the Purinethol I have been taking for 6 years for Crohn's disease after a blood test revealed my 6-MMP metabolites were too high and 6-TG were too low. Several published studies show Allopurinol to be helpful for "non-preferential metabolizers" like me, to help shunt the metabolic pathway towards therapeutic 6-TG.
After 1 week of Allopurinol, I had to discontinue the drug due to debilitating nausea, which was worst in the morning.
- Bone infections involving my teeth crohns and prednisone over the past 12 years
Dentist  tell me the abscesses are in the bones and I've had several root canals, bridges, bone surgeries that last 3 years, teeth became so mobile after the bone economy I had them pulled and now a partial one month ago. Bone loss etc. I don't have the ridges in my mouth that most Crohn patients have. Appears to affect the upper teeth.
Crohns diagnosed at the age of 39. Moderate to severe.
Dentists state the problem is the use of prednisone and having Crohn.
- Bladder infection while on mestinon
Had gradual lest side weakness. Everyday living is difficult. I was referred to cleveland clinic. Dr there has had me go through several tests. My tilt table test showed increase of heart rate and blood pressure. So he suspects I have POTS Postier orthostatic tachecardia syndrome. Still more tests are scheduled . He put me on genaric form of Mestinon. And within two days of taking the medication I got a bad bladder infection. I'm wondering if this is going to happen again. Bladder infections are terrible!

Comments from related studies:
From this study (12 months ago):
Diagnosed with Crohns disease in March 2013. Have been taking Lialda and Lansoprazole since. On Jan. 15th, 2013 I received a flu shot and started having flu symptoms immediately. On Jan. 20th, I started getting the restless arm and legs syndrome and by Jan. 24th, I could barely walk or lift a spoon. I saw my primary care doctor who put me on Prednisone and the symptoms have not worsened but I am having migraines, joint pain, some tingling and weakness in both arms and legs and neck muscles. Blood pressure rises when I do any moving around. Wondering if this could be a sign of Guillain-Barre syndrome as an extraintestinal manifestation of Crohn's disease as I have done some research this morning.
From this study (2 years ago):
Couldn't walk after second Remicade infusion for Crohn's. Was switched to Humira with same results. Am now bedridden and can no longer work outside the home. Mayo Clinic diagnosed it as drug-induced lupus but blood markers are changing while symptoms are not.
JAYANTA KUMAR BANDYOPADHYAY on Apr, 24, 2012:
After the first dose of Infliximab Remicade for HLA B27 + Spondyloarthropathy, ( second is due in May 2012 and I am advised for life long such an expensive treatment with no curability but to restrict the rate of deterioration), my condition is in a fix. My cornea is also affected with total absence of goblet cells suggestive of grade iv squamous metaplasia. However, my Doctor is very good / caring and humanitarian. I took opinion of four leading doctors in India and email advice from USA/UK/Netharland and all confirmed my treatment on correct path. I do not know how to finance Rs.10 Lakhs every year when my income is 50%. of that.
