Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • 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
  • 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!!!
  • Is ibuprofen safe to use if i have retinitis pigmentosa?
    I have bulging disc pain that I use Ibuprofen for. I can be pain free for weeks/months and take nothing. When I have a flair up I can take up to 8x200mg per day. I have heard this may affect my RP. Can you advise?

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Understanding and living with cancer
    After having one treatment of Gemzar, I had a severe reaction, which caused me to have many seizures. This caused me to developed PRES, which in turn has caused me to have brain damage.When I came out of my induced coma I did not know where I was, nor did I know who my family members were. I could not bathe myself, drive, my speech was broken, I could not add two plus two. I was not the woman I was before Gemzar treatment.Now I am unable to work, I am unable to live on my own, I must always be in the company of another person. I have lost my home and car and job due to this condition. I am currently in speech therapy and soon will start occupational therapy (which is VERY costly) This month marks the one year anniversary of this condition for me. I am making progress. I am able to bathe myself, I can do a little cooking, (although the first time I tried I caught the kitchen on fire a little), I am still living with my Mother , as she is my care taker, my nurse, my driver, my chef, my house cleaner. I currently receive disability. My student loans have gone into default. I could go on but I am depressing myself. I am, followed by my Oncologist every two months now.I want to share this information to anyone and everyone who can benefit from this information.

    Thank you, Chelette Williams, BA,MBA.

  • 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.
