From this study (5 days ago):
I have Fibromyalgia and Psoriatic Arthritis. Over the last 3 years I have had
Oropharyngeal candidiasis on 3 occassions... now being treated with Diflucan. Diflucan has worked in the past.
I have experienced constant dry mouth since taking Lyrica and Endep... the only relief has been from chewing gum. Is this common? Or is it from the Methotrexate and Humira??
From this study (6 days ago):
Am taking Prilosec - due to an endoscopy that my GI doctor did. Indicated raw, irritated stomach lining. I do have Celiacs / which is very well controlled and GI said looked "non-existent". ENT also indicated throat is raw and irritated and swollen due to acid reflux. Could this be caused by Cymbalta? It is the only drug I'm taking.
From this study (7 days ago):
Do the above drugs interact negatively with Garciniacambogia
