  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • After doubling my Depakote dose, my abdomen is swollen and I am so dizzy and hallucinating so badly I can barely read. My nausea and pain are so severe, very effective drugs at doses that are a significant amount to my system are barely helping. Due to the weather and thus swelling of my previous Chiai Malformation Decompression Brain Surgery site, I have significant and debilitating headache pain and other Chiari symptoms are much worse than usual.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I was in a car accident in 2000. My lower back was trashed, and had to be reconstructed basically. I have fusions and titanium, all of this as causd many other health problems to arise over the last 10 years. But, I live a pretty normal life, most people don't even know there is anything wrong with me. : )

    Ultracet and Ultram, any drug from that family can be very dangerous, I had a serious reaction with Ultracet. I had 3 seizures before we figured out what was happening to me.

    Solu-Medrol was used in the hospital through my IV, for a complicated migraine problem. I do not know if I had some kind of allergic reaction to it, or if that drug just does that to people, but, I was ripping the IV out of my arm! I couldn't stand it! It felt like fire ants were under every inch of my skin crawling and biting me all the way down and back up my arms and legs! It took hours to stop, and it did not help the migraine either.

    Allergic... on Mar, 6, 2013:

    allergic reaction to vancomycin and sulfamethoxazole....
    I was given vancomycin through an iv 2 days ago. Today I decided to take some sulfamethoxazole and the allergic reaction is unbearable. It's been 4 hrs and the burning aching hasn't stopped. How did u manage to stop the allergic reaction. I'm wondering if I should wait it out or go into er.
