From this study (3 days ago):
My husband came down with cancer during his Hepstitis C treatment with Incivek, Pegusys Interferon and riboviron. We want to know if any of this drugs would have caused this.
From this study (4 days ago):
I am 51 years of age and only have 1 ovary left as I had a hysterectomy in 2004. I saw my gynecologist for my yearly and it was timely as two weeks prior I was having tenderness in my ovary. She did an ultrasound two days ago and I am waiting on the results. I was prone to cysts, which is why only this ovary remains. I have been on Latuda for approximately several months and have not had any blood work done yet. I am wondering if prolactin levels can cause cysts to occur and if anyone has experienced this.
From this study (2 months ago):
This is scaring the hell out of me. Scan today, abnormalities noted in cerebellum, hoping for an appointment with Neuro ASAP.
