Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (12 months ago):

  • I have been on most of these drugs for some time and my symptoms of sleep paralysis and sudden depression and dizziness have me worried that they are associated with one of the medications that I am on. My Rhum doctor thinks that I have Fibromyalgia that may have been brought on by my inflammatory poly arthritis and that the severe crushing pain in my feet is due to neuropathy. I have also had shingles twice and have post herpetic neuropathy in my hip. I am getting scared to sleep because of the disturbing dreams/paralysis and it is increasing my anxiety and I believe it is causing my depression as I am crying at the drop of a hat.

  • I was in a car accident in 2000. My lower back was trashed, and had to be reconstructed basically. I have fusions and titanium, all of this as causd many other health problems to arise over the last 10 years. But, I live a pretty normal life, most people don't even know there is anything wrong with me. : )

    Ultracet and Ultram, any drug from that family can be very dangerous, I had a serious reaction with Ultracet. I had 3 seizures before we figured out what was happening to me.

    Solu-Medrol was used in the hospital through my IV, for a complicated migraine problem. I do not know if I had some kind of allergic reaction to it, or if that drug just does that to people, but, I was ripping the IV out of my arm! I couldn't stand it! It felt like fire ants were under every inch of my skin crawling and biting me all the way down and back up my arms and legs! It took hours to stop, and it did not help the migraine either.

    allergic reaction to vancomycin and sulfamethoxazole....
    I was given vancomycin through an iv 2 days ago. Today I decided to take some sulfamethoxazole and the allergic reaction is unbearable. It's been 4 hrs and the burning aching hasn't stopped. How did u manage to stop the allergic reaction. I'm wondering if I should wait it out or go into er.
