  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • Was recently told that my white blood count was low, I believe that it is a direct result from my medication as I have no other symptoms. My question is , if I go off the medication will my blood count go up if it was indeed the medication causing the drop.

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • One year prior to blindness occurring I had a total hysterectomy, then an intestinal infection of some kind, I was given the above antibiotics, I had a seizure from them, fell into the shower and had a slight head injury. CT was normal. Medications discontinued. One year later, I woke up with a headache on March 31st, by April 3rd I was blind in my right eye. MRV was inconclusive, MRI normal, CT to be determined. I have put on 50 lbs. even though I am active and watch my diet.
