Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
recent diagnosis of pericarditis and atrial fibrillation.
In hospital took colchicine and high dose aspirin until pradaxa started (for anti-clotting).
Discharged without a pericarditis medicine, just added high dose (600 mg ibuprofen) and colchicine twice a day. Now feeling very tired and have some hot flashes.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- Can pradaxa cause mds?
I want to know if taking Pradaxa can cause MDS; and if so, would stopping taking Pradaxa cause the MDS to go away or would I need to take treatments to help the MDS anyway?
- Can you take ibuprofen for arthritis condition, i have multiple myeloma, i have had stem cell treatment and was clear for 5 years , paraproteins were raised but another stem cell treatment not viable
My consultant has told me Im not to use Ibuprofen as it may alter my blood results. I suffer with pain in my wrists, thighs, lower back. I just dont know who to turn to with this as the pain is 24hrs a day and I dont know what advice is the best!
- Does acetazolamide help with intra nasal ketamine controlling your pain longer?
Thinking of having Ketamine infusion to reboot my Central Nervous System. I have been taking it in liquid form & nasally for the last year. Some relief but doesn't last! If I don't have RSD can it do me more harm than good??? Thank you for helping end the pain, I hope.
