  • Does toviaz interact negatively with ibuproffen
    Male, 62 years old. Had a prostatectomy months ago (cancerous, 7 rating). One month after surgery, I started taking one 4 mg pill of Toviaz. Worked like magic with no side effects.
    Three weeks ago, I lost control again. The leakage was so bad in frequency that I had to go back to using pads. This lasted for 5 days before things gradually went back to "almost normal".
    The only difference in medication, food and drinks that I had in those 5 days is I used to take 2 ibuprofen pills (200 mg each) in the morning & 2 at night to deal with headache.
    Once I stopped taking the ibuprofen, things improved.
    Could what happened with me be the result of of interaction between Toviaz & Ibuproffen? I called Pfizer and the lady siad she does not have any information on this

  • The dangers off fluoridation
    I live in an area where the water has been fluoridated for approximately 55 years and have been treated for an underactive thyroid since 1978. I have also suffered from urge incontinence since 1967 and for 4 years have also had the symptoms of skeletal fluorosis although I have not been able to get the tests to confirm this. About 2 years ago I read about the dangers of fluoride and stopped using the tap water for drinking and cooking but still had to use it for bathing and still swam in the local pool. Also I have always drunk about 3 pints of tea a day. Recently it was found that there might be a problem with my kidneys so I stopped drinking tea and swimming. I had been going to the toilet 16/17 times a day but after about 5 weeks this was down to 7/8 times and the urgency was gone. Also I was given a follow up kidney function test after 6 weeks and that was normal. A few weeks later I was shopping in an area where the water is not fluoridated and risked having tea in a cafe there and the irritable bladder symptoms came back almost immediately and lasted for several weeks.
  • Ibuprofen and esophageal stricture
    After taking relatively high-doses of ibuprofen for many years, I developed an esophageal pain when swallowing large pills and experienced two unexplained events of esophageal spasm. A barium esophagram showed a stricture near the lower sphincter with a pencil-sized opening. Confirmed benign with a endoscopy and biopsy, it showed no gastric or duodenal ulcers from the ibuprofen, the stricture was expanded and I experience no discomfort now.
    I believe scarring of the esophagus was the result of taking ibuprofen often during the night with only a sip of water and then going back to bed. The ibuprofen dissolved in the water and by lying down immediately, the concentrated solution did not pass into my stomach but stayed in and irritated the lower esophagus for the rest of the night.
    To avoid future occurrences, the simple solution is to take ibuprofen with a full glass of water and avoid lying down for the next 30 minutes or so.
  • Xanax and periphial neuropathy
    Took 1mg of Xanax 3x a day for 29 years and I have Peripheral Neuropathy! I withdrew off of over a year time and have been off of it for 5 months. I believe that it had something to do with my Neurpathy because the problems started when I started to withdraw from it! It is horrible! I wish that more people would report this about Xanax!
  • Arm pain on both sides from xarelto and levaquin
    Extreme pain in upper arms and forearms. Unable to lift anything of substance.
  • Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
    I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I think it was brought on by the Suboxone. I took 3-4 a day for approximately 4 years starting 11 years ago. Stopped them but realized they were helping with my depression. After trying every antidepressant with no help the Suboxone was wonderful. I got back on it but only taking 2-3 a day for another 2-3 years. Insurance stopped paying about 9 months ago. I continued to take them, but only 1 a day for another 1-2 years. Now, I take 1 occasionally. When I completely stopped the neuropathy gradually began. It was around Sept. I began to notice my feet felt like they were numb. With shoes on I felt like they were wet. I also noticed getting weaker and my family noticed I was walking slow, etc. Feel terrible with terrible problem of something like hot flashes, but those were over years ago. Have lots of nausea. My doctor used some type instrument and I have very little feeling on the bottom of my feet. He is sending me to a neurologist.
