  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • After taking Keppra for 9 months following a grand mal seizure and subsequent brain tumor removal, I suddenly developed extreme OCD. I literally count everything. When I try to read,the phrases repeat in my head. The simplest task has become a monumental struggle. My physician has had me on 50 mg Sertraline for3 weeks now, along with Xanax. The OCD is still intense.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Imy BMI is 19. Blood pressure is never above 80/58. Heart rate is usually in the 60's. I walk approx 2 miles each weekday morning in an attempt to have more energy. Reason for the post - I am truly so tired (?) (not weak) most days that I sit at a table from 11AM until 8:30 PM. I wake up between 5-6 AM each day and only attend church for activities other than walking. I do not drive, as a rule. My concern is that my level of tiredness is getting worse. My medication has not changed. Wondering if i should I investigate the meds or bp or just be content sitting. Not depressed at all, actually, quite happy.

  • Seizure patient was on depakote for 16 years now on keppra 1500 mg.
    I am 28 years old and been off depakote for 5 months. I started keppra to control my seizure disorder, which works great. But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?

  • Lyrica photosensitivity
    Spent several hours outside in partly sunny conditions on Sat. Swelling started a little on Sun. But by Monday my face was ver swollen and red with small bumps most noticeable across the cheeks, nose and area of the forehead where bangs did not cover. I have only been using for (6) months. Unknown whether to continue this drug or not. It was helping; so I am torn.

  • I need advise, badly ckd!!
    The orthostatic BP started in mid April, I was only dizzy upon wakening then it would subside. I have never been a big breakfast eater so I started doing that. We were in Disney later in April and I was extremely fatigued, to the point of not wanting to walk, Disney would be the first time I passed out when getting dizzy. I of course said I had gotten too warm and was exhausted from work the previous week. The dizziness continued in the mornings & I passed out several more times. On May 1st, I passed out while putting my make-up on and hit my eye on the faucet and head on the tile floor, despite that I went to work thinking it would subside, it didn't. I went to the ER directly after work. They ran a B-met on me and my GFR was 11 and creatinine 3.95. They admitted me to a larger hospital for evaluation. While in there, they pumped me with fluids continuously, saying I had severe dehydration. My kidney function improved, my creatinine levels went back down to 1.34. After 5 days I was discharged and told to see a cardiologist and endo. The endo doc cancelled my appointment on the basis it was not his area. I had had a cortisol and ACTH testing which I guess was normal. I saw the cardiologist, who said it wasn't cardio. I had had an echocardiogram in the hospital and EKG monitoring. Cardio sent me to neurology, the PNRN did a basic neurological exam and drew blood for disease markers such as Lupus, sjorgens, hepatitis, ect. All disease markers came back negative, but my GFR was at 11 again and creatinine was 4.25, BUN 50 along with an elevated ACE level. They called me and said I sarcoidosis. I really don't have any of the primary S/S of this autoimmune disease. I don't know where to go from here, they are referring me to another neurologist at a bigger hospital. I can't live my normal life, can't walk on my feet due extreme pain and I pass out at least 2x a week, which is not good for my old body. My BP upon laying and sitting runs like 117/72, upon standing it drops to like 70/50-50/30. I am on 0.1 mg of florinef, I tried increasing it but then my legs swelled up for a gain of 23#. I talked to Mayo Clinic today and all there specialists are booked out thru December. I have to be able to work, I can't stay home any longer than September 8th! Please advise me!

  • Xanax bed wetting will it stop and do i wear diapers or die
    I am on the very edge of crazy. So starting this is pushing ne way over. I'm 49 for crap sakes. I am so tired of the pain in my body and I am just tired, this is the last slap I can't anymore. Naturally alcohol I am sure is just about the end game along with cuts. Just want to bleed out and not hurt anymore and be so scared to leave my house or sleep. I just want to sleep forever.

  • Who cares about the patient?
    I can't believe I'm still alive but quality of life is greatly diminished and no one cares. Not one doctor cares about how this one dr. prescribed all these drugs over a period of 5 years and I lost everything. I flat-lined sept 18, 2005 and was told by dr there in er that I would live 1-5 years and I had just lost my job as letter-carrier of over 17 years and my daughter was killed in dec of 2000, which I will always feel great responsibility because I knew I should have called her, it would have saved her life as she was killed in the firdale village apt fire and she didn't live there, she lived with me she was only 20 years old. So this crappy dr steven a creelman of seattle just kept throwing pills at me, telling me there was nothing wrong with any of the pills just me. I feared dr's and still do, I know they are just people and most people are good and caring but a lot are not. The Celebrex started after I was hit by a truck on the job in march of 2000. I will admit it relieved some pain but I had side affects immediately, within days to weeks. I was told by the crappy dr to shut up and take them as he originally told me they were not anti-inflamatorys but a new drug that did not upset stomach but they did. I felt trapped because it was an L&I and I didn't want to lose my job and so healthy and strong figured w/PT and rest I could overcome the accident pain which was lower back and neck well I couldn't sleep from pain and stomach but I couldn't tell crappy dr it would do no good. My daughter was killed Christmas night and that's a very hard one. I went back to work because my job was most of my life and I had friends at work. I continued to have more problems from Celebrex and I thought my stomach was on fire, it was blood clots that broke lose and I had to have an operation on my small instestine and what was worse is creelman, the crappy dr, when he told me it was an emergency umbililical hernia I told him I was going to get papers from owcp DOL as I would be off work at least 6 weeks. He said NO!!!!!!!!!! He closed the door and told me no, no I won't say it's from Celebrex when He really did know it was. I had an endoscopy 6 months later and that specialist said no more Celebrex. After that operation I just never felt good again I was swelling up my legs etc and fatique all kinds of not feeling good things and I was pissed at the crappy dr who by the said to me that no other dr would diagnose any different or believe me. So, it was in July of 04 and I was so sick I just went in there andhe was on vaction so another dr ran a bunch of blood tests for hiv which I told her was impossible and lupus and a few other things but no one there looked at any of the drugs except the pain medication which ironically was one of the only ones that didn't contribute to dvt & PE. when creelman got back I was still so sick I had left work and said I would be back in 2 weeks after I had some PT and rest. I couldn't sleep. That's when he prescribed REMERON. It was for sleep which it did help but I gained 50 lbs and within a couple months acquired tonsillitis, bhroinchitis, pneumonia, Phlebitis and a dvt which instead of referring me to a specialist he just presibed me an anti-inflammatory and another anti-depressant plus all the drugs He gave tons of samples which were never in noted in my files. I think he should have to pay me MONEY!! I have none since I have no job and I feel so terrible I wish I could just have my job back. And my Daughter but my health has been a Hematologist and injectable blood thinners. I hate the state of wash medical care about doctors but not the patients and I have no money to sue and it has been my experience not to mention crappy doctor SO WHO DO THE PATIENTS THAT ARE BADLY AFFECTED BY CRAPPY DCTORS GO TO? Oh I also couldn't be in the class-action suit because I didn't flat-line from heart attack. REALLY?

  • Cfs/fibro, migraine
    A strange thing happened when I started taking the Chantix for my smoking cessation... MY MIGRAINES AND TENSION HEADACHES WENT AWAY!!! As horrible as they were, and as bad as I have prayed for them to go away, I did not even notice that I didn't have the excruciating headaches anymore!! I stopped taking the chantix and the headaches gradually came back but it took me awhile to make this correlation. Once I did, I started taking the chantix again. it started working immediately... taking the migraines and neck pain away again! Now, I can take 1/2 of a pill every other day and that seems to keep the migraines away! There are side effects and I don't know if it would work for everyone but it sure worked for me!

  • Health issues and struggles
    I have numerous health issues. Some I've lived with not realizing they were there. Others are caused by meds I've taken in the past or am still using now. Lupus is the most recent and biggest trouble I have right now. It is caused by the one drug that finally gave me control of my seizures Some of the worst troubles have been TBI from birth. Epilepsy my entire life. Brain tumor ( surgery to remove it in 1982) Graves Disease. RA and most recently Lupus ( caused by the keppra)
