- Can prolonged use of warfarin cause liver and spleen damage (1 answer)
I was on warfarin for ten years. they now found that I have cirrhosis of the liver my spleen is very enlarged can this all be caused by the prolonged use of the warfarin. Doctors giving me the run around but under my ribs is killing me and they just say take pain meds and go away
- I have been diagnosed with cll and now have very enlarged tonsils. my dr wants to put me on ofatumumab (arzerra) before having tonsils removed. have others had this treatment. and what is outcome?
I have been diagnosed with CLL - an intermediate form - meaning not too severe but not so mild either. After a rash (unknown cause) treated with prednisone, followed by a sore throat, my tonsils remained enlarged to the point where I have had some difficulty swallowing. A biopsy showed that the tonsils are expressing CLL, which means the enlargement is caused by CLL and not an infection. My hematologist recommends treatment with Ofatumumab (brand name arzerra) to shrink the tonsils and then I would have an ENT remove them. The hematologist thinks that just taking predisone for a longer period of time would not fully shrink them, or if it did work, I would likely get a recurrence, so recommends this mild CLL treatment. Have others had a similar situation, and if so, what drugs were used to shrink the tonsils? Thanks in advance.
- Can u take both efavirenz and raltegravir everyday for hiv infection?
i am wondering how good is to reduce viral load and increase cd4 count if the hiv patient swallows or intakes a pill of efavirenz and a pill of raltegravir everyday? This is something i havent found any information in many hiv data pages i have checked. Does anybody know if this combo of Efavirenz + Raltegravir is any good?
- I get hiccups from magace. can i lower dosage to one teaspoon per day instead of two?
I am losing weight. I want to try magace to gain. But, after a few days I start to get hiccups that are unrelenting. I am taking 2 teaspoons per day. Could I drop that to 1 teaspoon per day? The dosage is 40mg.

From this study (3 weeks ago):
was diagnosed 10-22-14 with mild colitis in entire colon, diverticulosis found in sigmoid, descending, and transvere colon
From this study (1 month ago):
Numbness on right side of face. some muscle weakness on face
From this study (3 months ago):
Upon reduction of jakafi dose due to low platelet count from 20 mg to 5 mg every 12 hours patient experienced extreme pain experienced low blood pressure and rapid heartbeat and with admission to emergency was treated for shock and then diagnosed with toxic shock syndrome and treated for that. The blood and urine tests however showed ant reason for infection after 5 days. He died 40 hours after reaching the hospital. Cytokine overreaction is my belief that brought on a septic shock like syndrome.
Dave M. on Oct, 12, 2014:
Maybe patient should not have been on 20mg. Something else likely going on here with sudden reduction from 20mg to 5mg. Sudden reduction due to sudden drop in platelets. Slower dose reduction with transfusion if required would be in order.
