  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I've had all over pain for 4 months, starting with pains in left abdomen, spreading to left leg, upper back, and then right abdomen. MRI's,xrays,blood work all shows normal. Physical activity and stress worsens symptoms. Seen hernia doctor said was normal, Neurologist diagnosed me with high anxiety and put me on Cymbalta. Primary has me on the cyclobenzaprine for the pain which I was told to only take at night because I have extreme fatigue. My pain has decreased tremendously since being on the Cymbalta but now I have found my left nipple to leak white fluid and blood when stimulated, noticed it while showering.My left breast and area around breast seems extremely sore.

    i have the same issue. i have breast pain all month long, even though i am not taking invega anymore. i have been completely off any antipsychotics for 8 months and nothing i got from my gynealogist seems to help. i have never had this before either.

    however, i have been told that when it bleeds, it could be a lot more serious. you should get this checked out.

  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • The abnormal dreams & mild hallucinations came only after starting the methylprednisolone a few days ago. They happen primarily when I am sleeping. I woke up last night with very unusual dreams & head/brain pain, and was quite concerned. I had taken 1 methylprednisolone & 1 cymbalta before bed. Earlier in the day, I had taken 2 methylprednisolone & 2 tramadol before a nap, and had similar, though not as severe issues. Trying to figure out what the interaction problem is. I did not take the muscle relaxant (cyclopenzaprine) before bed since I started the cortico steroid pack.

    Mother just survived near brush with respiratory arrest. Hallucinated at night on Tramadol, argumentative with RN who reported her to MD. He planned to ADD Seroquel 25 mg to Tramadol, Neurontin, Remeron and Ativan in rehab facility. She declined Tramadol and Seroquel and was still so sedated her pulse ox went down to 84 with long periods of apnea and need for constant obs with frequent rousing for airway. MAJOR struggle with RN to get 02 and MD agreed to no more Tramodol at night and absolutely no Seroquel. How many elderly are lost this way?
