Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Was diagnosed with MRSA following neck surgery. I had been on vancomycin 2g twice a day via IV. My trough levels were not reaching "therapeutic" levels so I was switched to Bactrim DS in late July. Wound is still open and painful. About three days ago I noticed blisters on my chest. I had shingles two years ago and these blisters I have now are painfully similar. I'm very concerned that I have shingles again and want to know what impact having MRSA will have on shingles.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I have had severe jerking in head, upper body, arms, and hands where I can not stand or hold on to anything 4 times the last 8 months, and the last one this past month, and it lasted for almost a week then went away like the other times with being on the medicines. The dr. now has me getting off the Neurontin, and Cymbalta. My primary dr. wants me off the Zoloft too. I wish I could get them all on the same page. I was diagnosed with MS in 1999 and need something for spasms, and pain so I can get off this one pain pill. What is in the Neurontin that causes the jerking? Does the medicine Baclofen cause jerking too?
