  • Is it safe to take demerol while taking tramadol hydrochloride and hydroxychloroquine (2 answers)
    I am experiencing acute, debilitating pain due to the Chikungunya virus, which has reintroduced all of the previous painful symptoms I have,ongoing and in the past, from Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, tendonitis and severe headaches. It's in its 38th day and I am basically crippled from neck to feet. Have to sleep propped up as arms throb with pain when horizontal. The only thing that has subdued the pain slightly are Oxycocet and Ibuprofen, but the pain never goes away. My hands and feet are so inflammed it's difficult to perform even the smallest tasks of personal hygiene and housekeeping. I have difficulty controlling my bladder and often don't make it to the washroom in time. Just started on Demerol today so will no longer take the Oxycocet, but am concerned of the interactions with Demerol, Hydroxychloroquine and Tramadol Hydrochloride extended release tablets that I take daily for the Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. I have dealt with a great deal of pain through the years, but I now have the pain of every serious illness I have had in my lifetime, all at the same time. I honestly didn't think a person could deal with this much pain at once. I have tried and am still taking several vitamins and herbal supplements as well as drinking tons of water and eating really well. Lots of berries, dark vegetables, apples, yogurt and minimal meat. Taking turmeric, papaya leaf, ginger, cinnamon and boswellia for the inflammation. Taking minimal wheat products, sugar and no alcohol. Also, drinking green, fennel and nettle tea daily. I know this is a lot of information, but I really need help and wonder if anyone has any suggestions! Thanking you in advance!!!
  • Is ibuprofen safe to use if i have retinitis pigmentosa?
    I have bulging disc pain that I use Ibuprofen for. I can be pain free for weeks/months and take nothing. When I have a flair up I can take up to 8x200mg per day. I have heard this may affect my RP. Can you advise?
  • Do others have nasal congestion from the drug
    i especially notice these symptoms after eating a meal
  • Can long-term methadone use cause or increase the risk of colon cancer?
    I had a two-level spinal fusion at L4-S1 in 2000 after being injuried at work in Sept. 24, 1997. I lost everything after...the unjury, ability to do my job, my wife and family (couldn't take the strain) my home, my sense of self and purpose, direction and belonging...credit rating and ability to pay my bills.
    After a long period of waiting to settle my workmens' comp. case, I returned home, from the Bat Area back to Arizona to take of my mother with a yet un dianosed case of moderate dementia.
    Then, in 2011 I had a 2nd surgery to relieve spinal stenosis btwn. L2-L4, just above the fusion site.
    I've been taking methadone since early 2004, a little over ten years, now. I've had high blood pressure since my injury.

    Now, I waiting to be scheduled for a colonoscopy, with my father having had polyps and the way I've been feeling..drained, tired all the time, and stomach pains ( in addition to my chronic low back pain), I...
    find myself wondering if there is any relationtionship between the methadone and other meds and cancer?
  • Is it safe to take effexor and ibuprophen?
    Have sinus infection which I'm taking doxycycline and ibuprophen for headache. I also take Venlafaxine for GAD. Is it okay to take Advil or acetaminophen while taking venlafaxine, not at the same time??

  • Finasteride and knee swelling
    taken finasteride 1 mg since 5 years, knee swelling both sides since 1,5 years. MRT without pathologic findings. stopped finasteride since 3 weeks. No more Knee swelling.
  • Chills associated with ibuprophen (1 response)
    I generally respond well to medication. I am a senior who has chronic pain from a c1-c2 fusion. Codeine works well, and I don't use a lot. Still, I sought alternatives to opiates for nerve pain. I lice in a colder climate. It took me quite a while to associate susceptibility to becoming chilled with Ibuprophen. I thought it was age and/or the weather. Perhaps these are factors; but it happens every time I use Ibuprophen. I share this hoping it can help others.
  • Wheezing stopped after topamax sessesion
    Wheezing noted by primary physician in this non-smoker. Stopped Topamax per doctor's instruction. 48 hours later was examined by physician and noted that wheezing stopped.

  • Understanding and living with cancer
    After having one treatment of Gemzar, I had a severe reaction, which caused me to have many seizures. This caused me to developed PRES, which in turn has caused me to have brain damage.When I came out of my induced coma I did not know where I was, nor did I know who my family members were. I could not bathe myself, drive, my speech was broken, I could not add two plus two. I was not the woman I was before Gemzar treatment.Now I am unable to work, I am unable to live on my own, I must always be in the company of another person. I have lost my home and car and job due to this condition. I am currently in speech therapy and soon will start occupational therapy (which is VERY costly) This month marks the one year anniversary of this condition for me. I am making progress. I am able to bathe myself, I can do a little cooking, (although the first time I tried I caught the kitchen on fire a little), I am still living with my Mother , as she is my care taker, my nurse, my driver, my chef, my house cleaner. I currently receive disability. My student loans have gone into default. I could go on but I am depressing myself. I am, followed by my Oncologist every two months now.I want to share this information to anyone and everyone who can benefit from this information.

    Thank you, Chelette Williams, BA,MBA.
