Had total knee replacement 11/12, bad from the start, knee swollen/hot/painful/unstable for most of 2 years before a mechanically successful Revision that found a loose patella and both ends of the prostheses loose. In spite of 10-12 aspirations and almost as many samples sent to labs for testing the result was always "no growth after a week". Following the revision, 10 days after, surgeons office called and says yes you have a staph E infection. Immediate therapy with 6 weeks of 3 X day IV PLUS 2 x per day oral Rifampin.
IV over but now on the 2 X day Rifampin PLUS 4 X day 500mg cephalexin and the fatigue is unbelievable. Wake up exhausted after 8 hours sleep, daily hour plus mid afternoon naps.

- Lamotrigine severe rash
I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.

- Intrsoccular pressure increase associated with wellbutrin
I was given a prescription for Wellbutrin in approximately 1998. I had has my ocular pressure checked a year prior to this and it was okay. At the time, I only needed to wear reading glasses, common in people over 45. I took the drug at the full prescribed dosage for two weeks. Immediately prior to the narrow angle glaucoma episode, my vision had actually seemed to improve. For one day, prior, I could read without reading glasses. The following night, I was watching tv, and things suddenly became foggy. It was actually as if a fog had enveloped the room. I could not see anything except to discern between light and dark areas. I had to have emergency laser surgery the next morning. I mentioned to the doctor that Iwas taking Wellbutrin to stop smoking, and asked if it could have caused the ocular pressure increase. he consulted the PDR, and said there was no mention of it causing increases in ocular pressure. One year later my primary care doctor again insisted that I stop smoking, and again I mentioned that I thought it might increase ocular pressure. She told me to take a half dose, I did, and I took it one week, at which time I again experienced another episode of narrow angle glaucoma. When I go to the doctor's office my pressure in my left eye was 72, and 68 in my right eye. I was then referred on a triage basis to another doctor. I spent the rest of the day in his office having drops administered every fifteen minutes(extremely painful). I had extensive laser surgery the next morning.It required over fifty shots from the laser machine into each eye, (also extremely painful). I had lost considerable peripheral AND CENTRAL VISION in my left eye, and a good deal in my right. As a result of having to have such extensive laser surgery I also had cataracts that began at 50% maturity. I was advised by the surgeon that I should wait to have the cataracts removed "until my vision and quality of life was so poor that I was ready to commit suicide" because having the cataracts removed would cause the pressure in my eyes to become very difficult to control, and that more than likely I would end up being black blind. I would never use Wellbutrin under any circumstances, and I always check to make sure that any new meds I may be put on don't have anything to do with an increase in ocular pressure. If they do, I refuse to take them. The surgeon said he was surprised that I didn't lose more vision than I did, and I am grateful that I didn't, and that he was a good surgen. He wrote an article concerning this case for a medical journal since he said he had been seeing a recent increase of narrow angle glaucoma.
- Librium 25mg and wellbutrin 300mg for >1 month
I've been taking librium twice daily, morning and night, for about 3 months now along with wellbutrin XL in the morning. I've basically had the mood of "I don't care" and a great boost in confidence.
- Bedwetting with paxil and wellbutrin
I have been using both of these drugs and now have bedwetting issues 5 times a week on average. I would rate the bedwetting as moderate about a6/10 but my wife and I can live with this as she had made the comment " you are back to the man I married ". I started taking these due to depression about work and anxiety about work. We both think we can live with the bedwetting as no one needs to know about it

Wondering if sinusitis is a side effect of methotrexate?
Altmed on Sep, 16, 2014:
I've wondered if respiratory problems while taking Plaquenil is from parasites (non-malarial) are being chased into other tissues?
Sweet wormwood seems to work better than Plaquanil for some.
It would be interesting to see a study of those using wormwood instead of Plaquanil for RA.
Interesting that becoming I'll elsewhere (lungs, feet pain/discoloration, hands/wrists) seems to increase in some after taking Plaquanil for a few weeks to months after starting even relatively "low doses".
Kevin Peters Ph.d on Mar, 4, 2013:
Sammy, I'm a white 45 male; just wanted to agree on that Klonopin remark. When I was 21 I had my second kidney transplant which was a BAD issue all together, at any rate the hospital did not include my medications taken at home after my surgery. I went thru the worst hallucinations and jerking and seizures you could ever possibly imagine. This went on for almost 3 1/2 weeks before we decided to have me taken OUT of the hospital and relocated before they ended up taking my life. Then the whole staff of paychology including the chief of psychiatry cane in my room to see what they could do, Finallu. During one of my few moments of clarity the C.O.F after blaming me if talking "drugs" prior to my transplant listened to my word of telling him the meds I was on before being admitted. After asking when was the last time I had received my Klonopin and me not knowing, he then reviewed the charts, and didn't see me receiving this med once. He stormed out of the room of about 9 docs and came back in with two Klonopin; for the first time in almost 4 weeks and after three surgeries the first 72 hours I was hospitalized, I was sleeping like a baby, for about 49 hours with NO MORE hallucinations, or seizures or jerking! I finally got out of there without a kidney since that kidney was supposed to go to another man named the same as I in a different city! I do take Xanax and probably always will. The half life on Klonopin is much different hence one if its dangers, Nevwr Ever stop this drug cold! I've been on dialysis 25 1/2 years now and suffered from intense skin cancers, but have fought and done all I can do to live a normal as possible life, working full time except when I'm in yet another surgery, over 32 general anesthetic procedures since 1987. I was the youngest boy-man to ever be on the USA soccer team ready to play in the Korea 1988 Olympics. What a change in life.....
