Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Does anyone else have trouble getting to sleep since beginning to take brilinta? (1 answer)
    Am trying to figure out just why, since stent insertion, I have developed insomnia which keeps me from getting to sleep at night. Brilinta is the only new drug I am taking.I am very sleepy, falling asleep in my chair while watching TV, but wide awake when I go to bed and staying awake until two or three in the morning. I do not nap during the day and am pretty active with cardio rehab and walking the dogs three times a day.
  • Can synthroid be taken with any of the drugs listed?
    My mother takes 9 drugs one of which is Synthroid. We are trying to spread out the amount of pills taken daily (A.M Noon Evening and bedtime) so she isn't taking four or more at a time.
  • My mother was given 4 prescriptions on 06/10/2013 and on the 28th, she passed away, would these have cased her liver and kidneys to shut down?
    we had went to er for a fall, where they did diagnostic xray, and she had bruised her butt, admitted due to small amt of fluid, everything seemed to be going downhill, come monday after thursday, liver and kidneys shut down, just two weeks prior, she was prescribed by her physician celebrex without lab work?
  • Did all of these medications cause kidney failure and liver failure
    never had a liver diagnosis, took the celebrex for 1 week, and did not have blood work before subscribed, does any of these medications mixed cause problems?

    admitted for fall, discharged one week later to hospice
  • Does anyone else suffer with hand cramps after injecting novolog into their arms?
    For the past six months when I take my Novolog before meals, about 1 1/2 hours later I get cramps in my hands, so bad I cannot hold a fork or knife. I have also noticed, at night when I take my Lantus, I have awoken with severe leg cramps. The only thing different that has happened is the pharmacy at Ft. Sam Houston has gone to a shorter needle (1/4 in) instead of the regular needle of 5/8 in. I have spoke with my doctor and the pharmacist and both say they never heard of people with these reactions. What I have read on line make me believe that this is happening to other people besides me. Can someone give me some advice?
