Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Post surgical medications have been given to me. My daily medications prior to surgery was Dexilant and Amitiza. Two days after surgery I have developed swelling in both legs below the knee. There is NO pain or tenderness associated to the swelling. However, I have never experienced swelling in lower limbs before and wondered if this was a side affect from taking all these medications?


  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I seem to have more RLS when combining promethazine, methocarbomal, and/or diphenhydramine. Is this a problem for blood clots? About to start Seasonale and all birth control pills are warning about blood clots.
