- What should i do to relieve the flushing symptoms?
Was diagnosed with Parkinson's in March 2013. My doctor has prescribed sinemet, which I have tried 3 times, but during each,I have experienced periods of flushing, agitation, and restless legs--to the point of feeling truly ill. He doesn't believe that there is a cause and effect relationship between the drug and these symptoms, but he doesn't know this for sure. Even after being off of Sinemet for a month, I am still suffering with flushing, though less acutely. I am wondering whether these symptoms are a result of the Parkinson's, the sinemet, one of my other medications, or perhaps and interactions of some of the medications. He has given me a prescription for carbidop-levo-enta (on the theory that there is a specific problem with the sinemet), but has cautioned me to wait until I am feeling better to begin it. Any thoughts about relationships between any of the drugs and the flushing & illness?
- I've been coughing a lot and have been on amitiza about 2 months. at first i thought it was an infection of some sort, but now i'm starting to think it's from amitiza. anyone have this?
I started Amitiza about 2 months ago. I had a cold about a month ago and then a few weekweekss ago I started coughing. At first I thought it was an infection, but after researching Amitiza, I'm starting to think it's from that. I'm going to stop taking to see if it helps, but does anyone have this problem? I feel a tickle in my throat and then go thru coughing fit so bad my eyes water. I have to take a deep breath to cough. Sometimes I have to take a deep breath to cough. Also, strong smells trigger it. Sometimes I cough up mucus, either white or yellow . I'm going on my 2nd week of this and so tired off coughing. I don't have much of an appetite because it hurts to swallow.
