  • Does toviaz interact negatively with ibuproffen
    Male, 62 years old. Had a prostatectomy months ago (cancerous, 7 rating). One month after surgery, I started taking one 4 mg pill of Toviaz. Worked like magic with no side effects.
    Three weeks ago, I lost control again. The leakage was so bad in frequency that I had to go back to using pads. This lasted for 5 days before things gradually went back to "almost normal".
    The only difference in medication, food and drinks that I had in those 5 days is I used to take 2 ibuprofen pills (200 mg each) in the morning & 2 at night to deal with headache.
    Once I stopped taking the ibuprofen, things improved.
    Could what happened with me be the result of of interaction between Toviaz & Ibuproffen? I called Pfizer and the lady siad she does not have any information on this
  • Cannabidiol interact topiramate
    Chronic Migraines, taking Topomax & propanidol with mild success. Are there any major interactions with cannabidiol (CBD)and the drugs I'm taking?

    Shortly after being dosed with Tamiflu this morning, he had a very erratic heartbeat. He is positive for influenza last Thursday and has been on Tamiflu since and Ibuprofen to manage fever (was up to 104.1 last week). Local clinic wants to see him. I don't feel like taking him there will solve anything. Its returned to normal within an hour of dosing with Tamiflu.

  • The dangers off fluoridation
    I live in an area where the water has been fluoridated for approximately 55 years and have been treated for an underactive thyroid since 1978. I have also suffered from urge incontinence since 1967 and for 4 years have also had the symptoms of skeletal fluorosis although I have not been able to get the tests to confirm this. About 2 years ago I read about the dangers of fluoride and stopped using the tap water for drinking and cooking but still had to use it for bathing and still swam in the local pool. Also I have always drunk about 3 pints of tea a day. Recently it was found that there might be a problem with my kidneys so I stopped drinking tea and swimming. I had been going to the toilet 16/17 times a day but after about 5 weeks this was down to 7/8 times and the urgency was gone. Also I was given a follow up kidney function test after 6 weeks and that was normal. A few weeks later I was shopping in an area where the water is not fluoridated and risked having tea in a cafe there and the irritable bladder symptoms came back almost immediately and lasted for several weeks.
  • Ibuprofen and esophageal stricture
    After taking relatively high-doses of ibuprofen for many years, I developed an esophageal pain when swallowing large pills and experienced two unexplained events of esophageal spasm. A barium esophagram showed a stricture near the lower sphincter with a pencil-sized opening. Confirmed benign with a endoscopy and biopsy, it showed no gastric or duodenal ulcers from the ibuprofen, the stricture was expanded and I experience no discomfort now.
    I believe scarring of the esophagus was the result of taking ibuprofen often during the night with only a sip of water and then going back to bed. The ibuprofen dissolved in the water and by lying down immediately, the concentrated solution did not pass into my stomach but stayed in and irritated the lower esophagus for the rest of the night.
    To avoid future occurrences, the simple solution is to take ibuprofen with a full glass of water and avoid lying down for the next 30 minutes or so.
  • Toperimate has ruined my life!
    On Dec 2, 2015 I started taking Toperimate for severe back pain. Within 48 -36 hours I became very sick - throwing up, nausea, blood in my feces, putrid taste in mouth, blurry eyes, difficulty sleeping, confusion and severe fatigue. I felt like I was poisoning myself! After 7 days I felt no improvement to my back pain and was in pretty bad shape. So I made the decision to go off of it after day 7's dose. On day 9, I woke up with severe VERTIGO. I thought I was dying, it was so bad! Was it a brain tumor (I wondered at the time, horrified!)? I didn't know. I believe (actually I KNOW) it was a side effect of the Toperimate, which can cause vertigo. I also immediately began to feel drunk all the time, even when I wasn't "spinning". I had vertigo and the drunk feeling for 1week and then I went to Urgent Care. The doctor was useless and only gave me Valium. No answers, no improvement. I waited 3 more weeks, desperate, and again went to second UC doctor. This one was competent. He diagnosed me with BVVP ( Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo - which us caused by dislodged calcium crystals in my inner ear.) and set me up to have the Epley Manuever through Vestibular Rehab Physical Therapy. My vertigo was (temporarily) corrected after the first PT visit. Although I was thrilled, I was STILL feeling drunk. I've had both an MRI and MRA to rule out brain rumors, etc. everything, thank God, came out clean. Yes! But I still felt drunk 24/7. 3 weeks after The Physical Therapist corrected my vertigo. It fully came back. I was devastated! But I was able to correct it myself by doing the Epley Maneuver by myself at home. I watched a Youtube Video for instructions. I need to mention that I believe I caused the vertigo to return the second time because the night before it returned, my husband used a vibrating massager on the back of my head/upper neck area because I had pain there. I learned from my PT that the vibrations could have again dislodged the calcium crystals in my inner ear. Strange, right? She said often the PTs use vibration to force the crystals back where they're supposed to be. Apparent, the opposite is true too. Well, today is February 2, 2015. I haven't had a recurrence of my vertigo but I STILL FEEL DRUNK 24/7!!!! Thanks Toperimate and it's makers, and the doctor that gave it to me. It was supposedly a "conservative approach" to my back pain, but the question is......will I ever feel normal again? If I do heal from this, I will try to remember to update this webpage again. Good luck to anyone who experiences this problem.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • I have OCD but after I started Zonegram 50mg bd 3 days ago, I have noticed my anxiety getting increasingly worse and I had a severe panic attack yesterday. The Zonegram has also decreased the severe paranoia I feel with the ketamine but it has introduced some memory loss. Otherwise I feel the best I have in years. Should I swap my antidepressant to help with the anxiety?

    I recently came off Gabapentin (1800 tds --> 1200bd --> tapering down to nothing) and noticed my baseline pain level rising, hence the starting of the Zonegran.

    How can I be sure the the positive side effects of the Zonegran are not going to disappear once I leave hospital and stop the ketamine and morphine? Basically is what I'm feeling just a reaction of the Zonegran and ketamine or will the Zonegran continue to work in my favour (minus the anxiety and memory loss) once I leave hospital?

    I am in hospital now, I have entered hospital for Multiple Sclerosis neuropathic pain and am on these drugs to treat neuropathic pain but suspect I may also have Crohn's Disease/ulcerative colitis/irritable bowel syndrome hence the Neuropathic Pain and Abdominal Pain.

  • Constant severe bouts of Cyclic Vomiting leave me confused, hostile, underweight, depressed and anxious. No meds seem to help... Exhausted and uncertain about the future.
