From this study (2 years ago):
I am a 50 year old female who is menapausal. However, the severe hot flashes and flushing is out of control. It is happening about 4 time per hour night and day. Everyone I come in contact with says that it is the most exreme case of "hot flashes" due to menepause they have ever seen. It is ruining my life. I believe that it has to be coming from some of the medicines I am taking. I also am curious if acetomenephen can cause this. Thank you for your help!

I can tell you from personal experience that Savella can cause EXTREME sweating. It is absolute misery. Can't go anywhere without hair and clothes wet with sweat. Didn't have this problem before taking Savella. My Rheumatologist confirmed it is a side affect from the Savella.
From this study (2 years ago):
I just want to know if I can take the Zaleplon and the same time as tizanadine.
From this study (3 years ago):
Stelara is a WONDERFUL drug. I had about 90% coverage of plaque psoriasis when I started Stelara on January 17, 2011. Two weeks later I was about 50% clear. Second injection was on February 17, 2011. One week later I was completely clear. Now getting ready for first 3-month injection on May 17, and I have noticed hair loss. There is new hair coming in, but I used to have a thick head of hair. Now it is thin and changing in texture. I have bald spots. Being female, I am terrified it will all come out. However, being bald certainly pales next to being covered in psoriasis.
