  • 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.
  • Heavy sweating during sleep
    Pain killers like Tylenol 3, vicodin 20 years, Valium and Soma 12 years. Sweat heavy during sleep.
  • Seizure patient was on depakote for 16 years now on keppra 1500 mg.
    I am 28 years old and been off depakote for 5 months. I started keppra to control my seizure disorder, which works great. But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?
  • Prednisone mixed results-it lets me breath (1 response)
    have been on prednisone now for 3 years straight. Am taking 30mg a day just to breath. every time i have tried to taper off i have ended up in the emergency room unable to breath. That has been 7 times in the last year. I am 49 years old and was in good health 3-4 years ago. got a cough and it has been down hill.Prednisone worked great at first but then it starts to destroy the body.Had nasal passage surgery(waste of time)have broken many ribs from coughing.painful.when you are on prednisone your body takes 3-5 times longer to heal.craked tailbone from a slip. have seen over 12 doctors.reasonable gueswork. My best doc which is mine says do you want to suffocate to death or let your body try and fix itself if it can. im not for suffocation at all. Just a good medicine to counter the angriness of the steroid. Any ideas i am all ears. oh ya my eyes are starting to go and my joints as well
  • Xanax bed wetting will it stop and do i wear diapers or die (1 response)
    I am on the very edge of crazy. So starting this is pushing ne way over. I'm 49 for crap sakes. I am so tired of the pain in my body and I am just tired, this is the last slap I can't anymore. Naturally alcohol I am sure is just about the end game along with cuts.
    Just want to bleed out and not hurt anymore and be so scared to leave my house or sleep. I just want to sleep forever.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • Was diagnosed with staph infection of left leg. Was presribed Avelox, on tuesday 10/20/09. on 10/23/09 was given cortizone shot in right knee. on sat, 10/24/09 i broke out in hives,i took benadryl and it helped for a short while.By monday 10/26/09 my face was severely swollen i was seen by my treating physician, who told me to never take Avelox again. He then gave me a shot, not sure what it was, and two predisone tablets to take immediately in office. He said he would call in something to Pharmacy for rash. Went to pick up Rx, he called in Vicodin, and Lorzapam. Rx had to call him for auth to give me medication for rash, he never even called in anything for the rash. I missed an entire week of work, did nothing but stay at home in bed and sleep. the following monday. 11/10/09, I tried to return to work, but had to leave early to get another shot, and more prednisone tablets, as the rash is still persisting. Dr now states that the alleric reaction is not the Avelox, and that I have mysteriously developed an allergy to either xanax, viocdin, or soma. All of which, he has been presribing to me for well over a year now. It is Sunday, 10/15/09, and I still itch, my skin has become very tough and dry. My throat has a mucousy discharge, and is irritated.


    Chessy on Jun, 12, 2012:

    Hi I'm 25 and had been taking viccadin for about 10yrs and suddenly developed an allergic reaction to it. I get very very itchy which can cause rashes to appear and my face around my nose and lips gets extremly itchy. I don't know why my body began revolting but I do know it still does it 3yrs later :(
