  • From this study (13 hours ago):

  • My doctor put me on Nortriptyline while I was suffering from Shingles and had severe depression, itching, and nerve pain on July 27, 2014. Today is Aug 2, 2014 and I have been having urinary bladder difficulty not emptying while going to the bathroom for about 2 weeks. The last three days have been the worst. Today I am having pain when urinating at the very end when I am patiently letting my bladder empty. My Shingles are gone. Thank you for your input.


  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Bones in toes and fingers have changed. Swelling in fingers and toes. Numbness in hands and feet. Tingling in hands and feet. Pain in hands and feet and knees.


  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Was given this drug to aid in passing kidney stones following a lithotripsy procedure. Everything was fine until the urine cleared and no stones or particles were present in the urine strainer. I haven't been able to leave the bathroom for about four hours because I can't stop peeing. Sometimes it is just a dribble but it has also flowed normal. Hopefully this wears off soon since it is keeping me from getting any rest.
