Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can i take humira while i still have pinpoint red spots on my skin? i have been told to stop the methotrextrate and they started me on prednisone to clear it up, i am scheduled to start humira.
I have been diagnosed with R/A and started taking Methotrextate and Folic Acid. I began to break out like I had the measles. Was told it was a reaction to the methotrextate. I was taken off of it and given a large dose of prednisone. My question is I am scheduled to start taking Humira injections and I have been off of the methotrextate 24 days and it has not cleared up yet. Is is safe to start the Humira injections?
- What does unmasking mean; and does it mean that i always had hight cholesterol and triglycerides, or did actemra increase them?
I have failed many RA meds, and now receive actemera x's 10 months I have never had high cholesterol or triglycerides and did not get my cholesterol checked except for the baseline 2/2014 and 12/2014 I was 198 TChol and now am 245; my tri up 85 points. my MD said that now that my inflammation is normal it shows my true cholestorol. I don't understand.
- Does anyone have persistent, ringing tinnitus while taking this drug?
I was prescribed Atenolol years ago for tachycardia. I took it for many years with little to no side effects, aside from tiredness. I began having PVCs and later was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. My doctor put me on 5 mg. Bystolic and the tinnitus started. I took it about 1 year. My BP wasn't ideal, so he upped it to mg. and the ringing worsened. It's much louder. The report says this drug isn't ototoxic, but I never had tinnitus before taking it. Anyone else????
- Is it safe to take zocalo if you are taking humora and methotrexate
Is it safe to take all three of these together? I need to know if there is any adverse side effects of taking these drugs at the same time?
- What can i take for a headache when i am on lexapro (1 answer)
lexapro started only a week ago, feel tightness in jaw and headache, sleeplessness, not sure if lexapro is good for me if i cannot ever take an aspirin or tylenol for sleep.

- Ringing in the ears from linzess
I started Linzess about a month ago, taking it about every three days. It was my miracle pill, until recently when I started having ringing in my ears. I am stopping the medication in hopes that the ringing will subside.
- Side effects of using terazosin
I have been on terazosin for 9 days. The ringing in my ears is unbearable, dizzy in the night if I wake up to use the bathroom, intermittent throbbing heartbeat. Also very significant is dramatic decrease in libido and difficulty achieving satisfaction. Dose started at 5 mg at night, reduced to 2 mg. at night after two days and ringing does not go away. I have permission from my doctor to discontinue use and replace with Lisinopril.
- Why has my bloodpresher now shot up
My blood pressure was always low 120/68 now since being treated for rheumatoid arthritis it has shot up to 175/92
- Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.
- Still ill after several years (1 response)
I became ill several years ago.
It all started with a head cold that lasted a few months and left me with Tinnitus and chronic sinusitis.
After a nose operation and many visits to the doc and hospital, I am no closer to felling better or being cured.
My doc gave me Beconase Aq at first and this made me very unwell, causing me fatigue which would last for a few days. I'm still searching for help.

From this study (2 years ago):

From this study (3 years ago):
I received two Rituxan infusions two weeks apart with Methotrexate for my severe rheumatoid arthritis . Within two weeks of the last infusion I became severely ill with a virus suffering from Sinusitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, conjunctivitis, urinary & bowel pain, urinary incontinence & bloody urine. It took me 6 weeks and infusions of IVIG to recover. During the same time period I started having severe load and continuous tinnitus that hasn't gone away in 6 months. ENT specialist informed me that this type of drug can cause tinnitus and it may never go away. Also, I have experienced only 6 weeks without illness during the past 6 months. I do have Mannose Binding Lectin deficiency, Hashimoto's, Sjogren's, Raynaud's, & asthma and I am allergic to most medications including all antibiotics. The Rituxan did help my RA symptoms. I am very health conscious and take vitamin supplements.
