Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Has anyone taking eliquis suffered from itching? not rashes, jsut irritating itching?
Going crazy with itching since starting eilquis..Doctors insist that's not a side effect. I insist since it's happening to me, it IS, even if it was never documented when in trials. Since it' happening to me, a patient, than I consider it a side effect. Anyone else???
- What can be taken for severe plaque psoriasis if you also have cll?
My husband has very severe plaque psoriasis , and also CLL, and he was told he could not take medications such as Humira to clear it up, so we don't have a clue as to how to get rid of it and it is driving us crazy.
- Is it okay to take co enzyme q 10 with levothyroxine
Is it okay to take Co Enzyme Q10 with Lovothyroxine. Will it stop my Levothyroxine from working properly. I am also on Simvastaton. Would appreciate any advice on this.
- Omeprazole or pantoprazole?
I take an oral contraceptive, Diane-35 ED, which is not in the list of drugs to choose from on this site.
Recently, the medication I was taking for my stomach ulcer (Omeprazole) became unavailable in my country of residence and was replaced by Patoprazole. I started taking it yesterday morning and by midday today the side effects were unbearable. I am nauseous, have diarrhea, and a very severe headache. This didn't happen with Omeprazole. Do you think this is a drug interaction or is there some difference between the two that I am perhaps sensitive to?
- Has anyone been prescribed methotrexate for granuloma annulare?
I have had GA for 2 years now, however it has gotten progressively worse the past 6 months. It has now spread over 80% of my body. I am seeing an Endocrinologist next week as I believe my thyroid may play a big role in this. My Regular Dr. suggested I speak to Endocrinologist about a drug called Methotrexate. Has anyone taken this for GA, and if so, can you please tell me if it is working, side effects etc?
I am desperate for some relief!

- My friend died of sepsis while having taken humera for a year.
My friend said she didn't feel good but was still active until about 20 hours before her death in the ICU on a ventilator from sepsis. She was just 55. This is a horror story. People are devastated.
- Psoriasis and flomax
I have been on Flomax for 4 years now and have been having a sore ulcerated mouth for about 3 years off and on. About six months ago I developed psoriasis on my scalp and have been using different medications described by my doctor.
Then three months ago I got a patch on my leg. I started looking at medicines side effect. I found out on the internet last week that Flomax might be the culpert.
It has been one week since I stopped taking it and today my leg psoriasis is starting to fade away. Has not itched all day today. TYJ!
The patch on my scalp is doing the same. The scalp thickness has improved tremendously. I just hope I don't start having trouble with my BPH again, so for so good.
- Etanercept and irritability
I have been on Etanercept for 8 years for Psoriasis. Previous to this I was on
Methotrexate, Cyclosporine, Retinodes and ACTH injections.Since being on 25mg twice a week I have been 98% clear.The only side effect to date is "Irritability" which lasts about 24hrs.
This Drug has been my saving grace.
- Shortness of breath after taking levothyroxine for 8-10 yrs.
I have been experiencing shortness of breath lately when taking the levothyroxine. If I stop taking it for a couple of days my shortness of breath is pretty much gone.
- How an integrative wellness approach cured me of insomnia, ibs, and more (1 response)
For 10+ years, I suffered with insomnia and a host of other problems including intestinal distress, headaches, psoriasis, anxiety, cognitive issues, hypothyroid, chronic itching, restless leg, etc. Traditional medicine, aka taking drugs, was not working to heal me. Since childhood, I’ve had IBS, headaches, and upper respiratory problems. Then, in my early twenties, after childbirth, I begin to suffer with panic attacks. I managed to get the panic attacks under control, but the insomnia never went away. I took both Ambien and Clonazepam at different times in my life. When I expressed my concern over taking these meds, my doctor reassured me and told me that some people just have to take sleeping meds for their entire life. I read literature on insomnia and tried most everything – no late night eating, no TV or electronics before bed, sleep in a cool room with complete darkness, meditate, sleep labs, etc. etc. etc. Even with the sleeping meds, I never got restful sleep. Most days, I felt like it was all I could do just to get by. For at least the first half of each day, I felt that I was in dazed stupor until the meds in me would start to wear off. I was first on Clonazepam and then switched to Ambien. When I made the switch, I suffered through withdrawal for about a week. It was horrible -- no sleep, hallucinations, etc. For years, I had silently suffered – my family, friends, and colleagues having no idea to what extent. I felt that mentally, cognitively, and physically I was slowly slipping away. My love for my child and my desire to nurture and provide for him is what kept me going. Without this purpose in my life, I fear that I might have given up somewhere along the way.
Finally, a few years ago, I went to see an integrative medicine doctor. After years of being in the darkness, I am finally living again. My IM doctor put me on natural supplements, a natural thyroid replacement, and, most importantly, tested me for food allergies/sensitivities. My test results yielded that I could not tolerate wheat, gluten, yeast, and dairy. I took these results seriously and I completely eliminated these things from my diet. After two weeks of adhering to my new diet, I already felt better. In fact, I felt so much better, that, one evening, I decided not to take my Ambien. I have not taken it or any sleep or anxiety medicine since. My doctor was as surprised as I was and did not really anticipate that the diet alone would cure my insomnia. In fact, he had told me that, since I had been taking sleeping meds for so long, eliminating them completely would be a long process that we would have to work through together. Nearly all of the symptoms I listed have disappeared. I continue to take my natural thyroid replacement and the supplements my doctor suggested. I have the occasional migraine and a few patches of psoriasis -- but nothing like the severity I had before. I am 47 now and I am on a journey of healthy transformation. I eat healthy foods, exercise regularly, and truly feel healthy, younger, and physically stronger than I have in 15 and maybe 20 years. Jokingly, my husband used to refer to me as "fragile." Well, not anymore. In fact, he has told me that my body seems like a completely different one. He has had a front-row seat to my transformation and he is as much "in awe" of the changes in me as I am in myself.
Ten years ago, I was not optimist about my future. Today, I am full of hope, wonder, energy, and excitement. I believe we have the ability to heal ourselves, but we must be diligent in our pursuit of knowledge, persistent and strong in our will to make lifestyle changes, and patient that results will come as long as we are doing all the right things. By the way, giving up foods I had eaten my entire life was not difficult at all once I did it long enough to realize the tremendous benefits of not eating them.

From this study (2 years ago):
Hypothyrodism caused dry skin. Initially my lower lip split and wouldn't heal. I now have a patch of skin that carries the same symptoms and looks like psoriasis. This has happened since taking Levothyroxine and lasted for 5 years.
