  • Clarithromycin hallucinations and nightmares.
    Auditory hallucinations, nightmares and delirium more so at night.
  • Clarithromycin and vision
    Within hour of taking first dose, flashing phenomena commenced in both eyes. Plus ringing in the ears. Continued to worsen over 60 minutes. Then disappeared but onset of severe headache, which has continued. I have in history of migraine.

    12 hours later, have sore eyes and neck (similar to with get with flu). Does appear to be hitting the bug though!

    2nd dose has restarted ear ringing .
  • Spiriva caused me to swell up like a hippo.
    My Doctor prescribed spiriva to help me breathe due to asthma/cold. I never smoked but my parents and friends were heavy smokers. I used the spiriva 3 times. Once a day for 3 days then I started swelling in my ankles and the swelling continued until my face, hands arms... basically I was so swollen I gained 29 pounds in two days. My doctor put me on lasix and potassium for several weeks. I quit using the spiriva when my other doctor asked if I was on any new meds. Spiriva was the only new medicine. When I stopped using it the swelling went away.
  • Chills while on tizanidine
    Extremely sensitive to cold and have chills several times a day
  • Off label use of drugs for peripheral neuropathy causing memory loss (1 response)
    I have peripheral neuropathy with standard symptoms of burning, tingling, stabbing pain on the tops of my feet. I have had this condition for over 15 years getting worse over time. The last 5 years I have seen a couple of doctors and through trial and error we settled on a combination of Savella and Methadone to dampen the pain which can go from a nuisance constant 2 to "I'm ready to cut off my feet" constant 8. Taking Savella and Methadone keeps me at a 2 or below except in the evenings when it can get to 5 or 6 and keep me awake. Over a period of a year or so, and I can't remember when it started, I was given Tizanidine, Pramipexole, Oxcarbazpine, Gabapentin and Lyrica (at separate times). I do not remember which of these I was on for the longest or at what point I noticed I was unable to remember what happened the day before, conversations I had with co-workers, decisions and agreements with my manager and things I had done earlier in the week or month. I'm sure a timeline could be put together but since I had lost short term memory I could not do it even now. When I finally figured out what was happening, I was close to losing my job as a Computer Hardware Engineer, which requires extreme concentration and memory. I stopped taking whatever I was on at the time and looked for anything to help me regain my memory and ability to concentrate. I am now taking herbal supplements and using iPhone apps to help me regain concentration and memory. After over 6 months of being off of these drugs I am close to having my previous facilities back. I cannot stress enough the importance of a doctor talking with their patients about memory loss and the ability to concentrate when taking these types of drugs. One of my doctors just gave me Topiramate to try and help with the evening pain and after reading the side effects I will not even try it. Better to be in pain and keep my job.

    What really bothers me is I think simply taking one additional pill of Savella will solve my pain issue, but my doctors scoff whenever I make a suggestion and try to put me on something else. After making a medication suggestion one doctor threatened to take me off all medication. I guess he showed me who's the boss. All this is causing me to trust doctors less and less.
