  • 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
  • 8 year old boy has erratic heartbeat. started tamiflu last week. do i need to quit tamiflu? he had a 104.1 temp when we started treatments.
    Shortly after being dosed with Tamiflu this morning, he had a very erratic heartbeat. He is positive for influenza last Thursday and has been on Tamiflu since and Ibuprofen to manage fever (was up to 104.1 last week). Local clinic wants to see him. I don't feel like taking him there will solve anything. Its returned to normal within an hour of dosing with Tamiflu.
  • I tested positive for methadone, i have never taken this drug (1 answer)
    I tested positive for methadone, I have never taken this drug. My Dr said I had to have taken it because it was there and that a false positive is out of the question. Could my meds cause methadone to show up on a urine drug test
  • Does anyone take oral methotrexate and use topical magnesium chloride oil. if you do, do you have any side effects?
    I would like to try the Magnesium Chloride topical oil, but because of the oral MTX, I was wondering if anyone was taking/using this combination and if there were any side effects to watch for.....
  • Is it safe to take demerol while taking tramadol hydrochloride and hydroxychloroquine (2 answers)
    I am experiencing acute, debilitating pain due to the Chikungunya virus, which has reintroduced all of the previous painful symptoms I have,ongoing and in the past, from Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, tendonitis and severe headaches. It's in its 38th day and I am basically crippled from neck to feet. Have to sleep propped up as arms throb with pain when horizontal. The only thing that has subdued the pain slightly are Oxycocet and Ibuprofen, but the pain never goes away. My hands and feet are so inflammed it's difficult to perform even the smallest tasks of personal hygiene and housekeeping. I have difficulty controlling my bladder and often don't make it to the washroom in time. Just started on Demerol today so will no longer take the Oxycocet, but am concerned of the interactions with Demerol, Hydroxychloroquine and Tramadol Hydrochloride extended release tablets that I take daily for the Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. I have dealt with a great deal of pain through the years, but I now have the pain of every serious illness I have had in my lifetime, all at the same time. I honestly didn't think a person could deal with this much pain at once. I have tried and am still taking several vitamins and herbal supplements as well as drinking tons of water and eating really well. Lots of berries, dark vegetables, apples, yogurt and minimal meat. Taking turmeric, papaya leaf, ginger, cinnamon and boswellia for the inflammation. Taking minimal wheat products, sugar and no alcohol. Also, drinking green, fennel and nettle tea daily. I know this is a lot of information, but I really need help and wonder if anyone has any suggestions! Thanking you in advance!!!

  • 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.
  • Arm pain on both sides from xarelto and levaquin
    Extreme pain in upper arms and forearms. Unable to lift anything of substance.
  • Ranexa and erectile dysfunction
    I have experienced moderate ED with taking multiple heart and NO meds. This has been manageable and acceptable. Cardiologist added Ranexa (Ranalozine) 3 weeks ago and I am now experiencing complete erectile and ejaculatory failure.
  • Wheezing stopped after topamax sessesion
    Wheezing noted by primary physician in this non-smoker. Stopped Topamax per doctor's instruction. 48 hours later was examined by physician and noted that wheezing stopped.

    Joel swanson on Oct, 20, 2012:

    Im a 53 year old male, My back and other joints slip in and out of position, My lower spine does and I throw it out all the time, over time my joints have broke down causing lots of arthritis and they always said I have degenerative joint desease and lots of arthritis! Finally I was diagnosed with elhers danlos syndrom type 3(Hypermobility)this explains the dislocating/slipping of my joints!Few doctors are up /knoledgeable about this desease! You might talk to youre doc and have him and yourself get research on this! No cure but it will help them to take your pain management more seriously. Im on Opana er,tramidol vicodin for breakthrough pain and I have an Intrethecal pain pump to pump hydro morphone into my spinal colum and that reduces the amount of drugs I need for pain relief! Most important don't give up! keep fighting untill you get into a situation with a doctor and a pain management clinic that take youre situation seriously and you get the relief you need1 Don't let the depression and hopelessness take over and if you want to get them to treat you seriously NO STREET DRUGS!!! if you use them game over they will just blow you off as a drug seeker! Good luck fight hard and God help you stay positive and strong!
