I just started taking Lisiniprol 2 days ago. My arms suddenly have a discoloration ( a deep red, rather than the blue I'm reading about). Pharmacist said it's not a side effect. ...?
From this study (10 months ago):
Intravenous treatment with Vancomycin and zofran for crippling nausea. Five weeks treatment uneventful. Bactrim added for three days. Creatinine increasing. Severe nausea unresolved by the zofran, 4 mg. every eight hours. Changed to 8 mg. loading dose and two subsequent 8mg doses, now nausea is continuous. Is this related to renal changes, zofran resistance or something else.
