Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Was diagnosed with MRSA following neck surgery. I had been on vancomycin 2g twice a day via IV. My trough levels were not reaching "therapeutic" levels so I was switched to Bactrim DS in late July. Wound is still open and painful. About three days ago I noticed blisters on my chest. I had shingles two years ago and these blisters I have now are painfully similar. I'm very concerned that I have shingles again and want to know what impact having MRSA will have on shingles.

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • diagnosed first with lupus then changed to mixed connective tissue disease. I have had this for 25 years becoming increasingly more debilitation. Plaquenil helped for a while but I quit taking it.

    Lately I have found that taking potassium prescription strength helps my fatigue and muscle strength. at times i have periodic paralysis when i am extremely fatigued. K does help this but it gets up so high in my blood level my physcian worries about it causing a heart attack.





    also my blood ammonia gets up to 82.. I am so sleepy I am almost comatose . I take lactalose but if I quit taking it my blood ammonia creeps up. My liver and kidneys are fine. Drs cannot find what is causing the high ammonia. thank you Catherine Dale
