Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Has anyone fallen pregnant while in nexplanon while taking aciclovir ?

  • Does prednisolone cause blood clots
    Recently was prescribed prednisolone. Will taking this cause blood clots?
  • Can i connect by email with other patients that have hypoglycemia and stevens-johnson syndrome? (1 answer)
    I have had hypoglycemia since childhood, and I have managed it easily until just this weekend. I got S-J two years ago from Bactrim. As I have healed from S-J very slowly and painfully, I was exercising hard, and working hard and slipped a little on not eating enough protein. I started dropping into sugar blackouts and it scared the crap out of me! Still working at being able to eat enough to straighten out low sugar levels. Any suggestions helpful, Thanks, Leann

  • Dilantin causes false positive testing
    False positive hampering custody..no use of cocaine..private test has benzoylecgonine. My doctor and pharmacist have both said Dilantin has caused false positive. DCF want "expert" statements..where do I find an expert?
  • Aleve and erythema multiforme
    I started exercising (walking outside)and due to sore knees I started taking Aleve. Within days I developed blisters on my chest, back, face, and inside my mouth. Mouth blisters were severe enough that I could only consume liquids. After 7-10 days the blisters scabbed over. This occurred three times within a two month period, the last time I had blisters around my eyes with physician concern of eye involvement but it did not happen. During the second round I went to a dermatologist and he determined that I had Erythema Multiforme and the cause was either a strep throat or Aleve. A second opinion determined it was Aleve partly because strep throat is not normally associated with EM. I have stopped taking Aleve and am EM free for 15 months.
  • Bad hair days due to medication i think, is prednisolone the culprit and if so wiil things get back to normal?
    My hair has changed from a slightly wavy thick head of, to frizzy, still a good lot of hair. I did have a 1 month spell of more than usual hair loss. I have been on Prednisolone since July 2013 30grm a day to start with reducing, at present 9 mg per day. The texture and look is not sitting well with me.
