  • From this study (6 hours ago):

  • The taste is so bad that it can turn my stomach. I have been told to stay
    on the drug due to having a very bad case of shingles in the ear and mouth.
    Will it go away when I am off the medication

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • The tremors/shakiness are intermittent. It is possible I could have had a constant shingles outbreak for over 7 yrs now due to my severely suppressed immune system. It takes me several weeks to be able to recover from these symptoms once treatment is stopped. However, I'm not sure if there will be irreparable damage to my kidneys at this point.
