  • Can the drug cellcept be used to treat pityriasis rosea
    Been diagnosed as Pityriasis Rosea. Dark patchy circles all over upper body and back. Condition has worsen, lasting over 5 months with outbreaks now on face and on scalp in hair. Some are painful raw blistery. Spreading on buttocks and a few on legs. Have tried several medications. Some have helped but none have cured. It is showing no signs of letting up. Dr has now prescribed Cellcept. Is this a safe drug for treatment for Pityriasis Rosea?
  • Interactions between quineprox (hydroxychloroquine) &zyvox (linezolid)
    I had foot soft tissue infection and hospitalized for two days and given IV for Cipro. Then I was released from the hospital and given Zyvox 600MG twice a day for ten days. Meanwhile, I am taking 2000 MG cellcept and 400MG Hydroxychloriquine for more than 10 years to control my lupus. Around the sixth days I had horrible joint pain for my whole body ans swollen on my hands and foot. I spoke to doctor, doctor said I should finish my zyvox doses since my foot infection does not cure yet. Then after two days I stopped the ZYvox, my joint pain getting better and swollen figers getting better but I feel headache and has fever. After surfing the internet, I found the interactions between hydroxychloroquine and the Zyvox could cause "The risk of peripheral neuropathy may be increased during concurrent use of two or more agents that are associated with this adverse effect. Patient risk factors include diabetesand age older than 60 years. In some cases, the neuropathy may progress or become irreversible despite discontinuation of the medications". I stooped taking Zyvox now, however, I am still taking my hydroxchloroquine and need to continue maybe life long. My appintment with my Rheumatologist is a month later. My pcp and Podiatrist seem have no idea about the interactions between the two medications. I would like to find out if I continue take hdroxycholoroquin, though I stopped the Zvox will still harm my nerv system? Should I stop taking Hydroxycholoroquine? How do I treat my headache and fever? Thanks

  • Sleep paralysis while on medrol and norco
    On my 5th day of my dose pack about an hour after taking medrol and a norco I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. This is the 3rd dose pack in 2 months and I just switched back to norco from Ultram the same day I started the latest dose pack. I felt unusually sleepy before taking my bedtime dose, but felt awake shortly after taking it. My sleep habits have been fluctuating due to sciatic pain which is why I am prescribed this medication.
  • Thrush while on prograf
    I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause

  • Low platelet blood count
    Kidney transplant had been performed 10 years ago.Mycophenolate mofetil was introduced 5 years ago to replace azathioprine.It has caused various undesirable side effects like severe diarrhea,nausea,nose and gum bleeding and low platelet count.Most of them were reduced as soon as the dose decreased except from the low platelet count which seriously concerns me as it has gone almost down the lowest limit.

  • Tramadol did not work --> still pain...

    More - Increased pulse rate, all day everyday. 110? How long is my heart going to last at that rate?? I'm 61 and feel like I could have a massive (like my Father's at age 51) any second. So I should keep taking this horrible stuff according to more than one doctor?? Non-Narcotic, Non-Addictive. That's how it was advertised 11 years ago when I started. BULL! IT'S SYNTHETIC CODIENE AND THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE POSTING ALL OVER THE WEB BEGGING FOR HELP. Like me.


    randytrain on Dec, 20, 2011:

    Consider yourself very lucky if TRAMADOL Does NOT work for your pain. It helps mine considerably (all 8 fingers crushed in an accident 10 years ago, 5 surgeries, a year of physical therapy. Now they are drawing up like RA and the older I get and the colder it is the more the pain. Feels like a CRAMP in both of my hands. That hurts bigtime). The problem is .... when I take it, which is everyday since the surgeon handed me a pile of samples to use, it makes me high. Period. If I stop taking it, which I've done many, many times, I get sicker than a junky. I've gone as long as 3 weeks with the horrible withdrawal effects and they do not subside! Yet I still talk to doctors who tell me how great it is and how I'm going to need it for the rest of my life? It's makes me HOT. I feel like I'm burning up my internal organs. I also don't even act like the same person I used to be. Mean. Overbearing. That's not me. I'm addicted to the 1st and only prescription drug I've ever taken. I have no coverage for rehab. Sometimes I just want it to end. That's how bad this crap is!!! I've contacted the manufacturer with no response. I may still sue them. Not for the money, but to bring this problem OUT!!!!!!!!
