  • Has anyone been prescribed methotrexate for granuloma annulare?
    I have had GA for 2 years now, however it has gotten progressively worse the past 6 months. It has now spread over 80% of my body. I am seeing an Endocrinologist next week as I believe my thyroid may play a big role in this. My Regular Dr. suggested I speak to Endocrinologist about a drug called Methotrexate. Has anyone taken this for GA, and if so, can you please tell me if it is working, side effects etc?
    I am desperate for some relief!
    Thanks
  • How common is erectile dysfunction with effexor and adderall and how can it be combatted? (3 answers)
    I take both Adderall and effexor to treat ADHD and anxiety/depression. I have taken both for years but Adderall longer. My ability to hold an erection and to experience an orgasm has decreased.
  • Why are my medications making me look bloated (1 answer)
    In 2008 I started the Suboxone Program. I Started on 16mg since then, I have been up and down on my doses. I was put on this drug as a result of my addiction to to over the counter opiates. I was also prescribed Seroquel, I stopped taking the Seroquel it wasn't helping me in anyway and I gained so much weight. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Bipolar and my psychiatrist put me on 300Mg Effexor, 20Mg Olanzipane and 1000Mg of Valpro. After 10 months I was able to stop taking the Valpro and Olanzipane. No matter how much weight I lose, I always appear so puffy and bloated in the face, especially under my eyes, they look like I haven't slept for weeks. I have very low self esteem as it is, this is making me feel miserable. I should also mention, that i got down 1MG of the Suboxone, after various stresses I went right back up to 18Mg. I have finally started to turn a corner and I am now reducing my dose at the right pace. It would make me feel so much better if I knew if even one more person was having this experience. Any feedback would be so appreciated. I send this with love from Australia :)

  • I wish i had never taken ambien
    Ambien was prescribed after my sleep study showed severe sleep latency and awakening. In the five hours I slept I woke 85 times and had only 5 minutes of deep sleep. However, the doctors couldn't make a recommendation because they could detect no cause for the poor sleep pattern. My doctor offered Ambien and since I had obviously needed the help sleeping I took it. For the next 10 years I suffered incredible depression. For example I remember laying in bed staring at the ceiling with tears rolling into my ears but I was too tired to wipe them away and realizing that I wanted to die so badly but there was no way I could have done anything about it. The worst effects were the loss of consciousness and the verbal abuse that I heaped on my husband and son. An example of each : I actually had sex with my husband that I could not remember amd hundreds of other actions and discussions. My husband started asking every morning what I remembered of the night before. He could usually tell when I was Ambien-awake (his name for it) he said my eyes would get glassy and my voice cadence would be off. Unfortunately my oldest son was going from infant to 8 years old at this time and any ifraction or even without provocation I would scream horrible things in his face. I don't remember much of it but what I do remember causes me enormous regret. He went from a happy and active toddler to a terrified amd anxious pre-teen. We are still working through the effects of this behavior. Finally, after a surprise pregnancy (see example above) My baby was placed in NICU and I stayed at the Ronald McDonald House and my son and husband visited when they could. Somehow my Ambien prescription was stopped and so I began going through withdrawal but I had no idea what was going on. My vision became so blurred thqt I couldn't identify items unless they were very large and then only by colors. When I visited my son those several days in the NICU I couldn't walk straight and would try to aim myself toward my goal until I hit a wall and I would correct course. These things didn't bother me at all but the nurses in the NICU were with me nearly the entire day because they were afraid I would have a stroke or who knew. Finally, after discussing these symptoms we decided to gradually stop the medication. Thankfully, i didn't have any withdrawal symptoms then. I did feel like an incredibly heavy and black blanket had been lifted away. Ever since I have had very little trouble with depression despite the continuation of sleep disturbance and pain. On a scale from one to 10 for depression with 10 being committing suicide I think my 10 years on the medicine was probably an 8.5 (I desperately wanted to die) and since stopping the medication I don't think it has gone above a 4 and is usually a 2 or 3. I will spend the rest of my life trying to repair the damage my verbal abuse caused my oldest son and my husband. For 10 years they lived in fear of my rages if I had a bad episode with Ambien.
  • My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
    In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.

    have had two knee surgeries ,a lumbar decompression, after this three surgeries start taken Losartan potassium and two months later have had a lumbar fusion after this I suffered a Deep Vein Thrombosis, continues taken Losartan for more of year and half, I notice is a bad combination when my older physician increase high dose of Warfarin I was losing mi Vision and stopped Losartan by my self and my vision is great now. my new physician told me that is OK that I had stopped taken Losartan. and I strongly believe that this cause me the DVT.
  • Effexor xr 150 mg and phentermine 37.5 mg
    phentermine has caused significant weight loss. Effexor XR manages my GAD and depression but causes random physiological anxiety attacks, drastic increase in sweating, vivid and nightly nightmares
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica (1 response)
    Diagnosed 12 months ago with type 2 diabetes - diet controlled. Diagnosed recently with polymyalgia rheumatica. Prescribed prednisone. This caused my blood sugar levels to skyrocket and. Now require insulin injections. Have developed a rash on arms & face. Have tried tapering prednisone dosage but pain levels come back up.

    Currently on 20mg daily. Still have pain in the morning & at night. Am worried about prednisone side effects.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • My WBC count has been low for 4mos now. I'm lethargic, having problems sleeping & still experiencing a tremendous amount of pain (which I believe it has to do with the congenital lipoma on my brain stem-I've had excruciating pain as long as I can remember.)

    really? on Sep, 22, 2014:

    I honestly thought this was a board where we could all learn from
    Each other's experiences. Unfortunately, everyone seems to be fixated on this one poster, asking a question for a "friend" & who is supposedly mixing all types of drugs. Let's get off of the 3rd party bashing because anyone on all of those drugs needs a lot more than people on a web page. Geez!!!!

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I brush my hair once a day. After this brushing, the hair brush is COVERED in hair, and I must clean the brush at that time. The crown of my head shows moderate to sever hair loss, and I don't know what to do about this problem.
