Comments from or about the patient: Took Mirtazapine at bedtime after a visit to doctor's. Next morning I could not get out of bed. I tried to stay up several times; but stumbled around so badly I went back to bed. [Falling is a major problem for me.] Advice: Caution with new medication.

Took 1/2 tablet of Oxycodone 10 MG/325 MG after surgery as instructed. Next morning, after second dose I fainted. My husband couldn't revive me;so I ended up in the Emergency Room. Is there a drug test for allergic reactions to drugs before the drug is needed?

  • I have been taking 20 mg of prednisone for 5 days. i just starting coughing up bright red blood. i am 81 years old and have non small cell lung cancer. can this drug cause bleeding?
    I have had lung cancer for 6 years. I am on oxygen. My breathing is getting gradually worse: however I just got prescribed 20 prednisone. I took 3 20 mg tablets the first three days, the next two days just one 20 mg a day. Them that night after the 5 days on the 20 mg I starting coughing up bright red blood. I have non pain associated with this. I have now been given only 10 mg of prednisone to try once a day. This s the first day on it and so far I am not coughing up any blood. Can prednisone cause a llung cancer patient to cough up blood if the dosage is too high? And is so, is there a substitute med to take it's place to try. It has been 6 years since I went through all the Chemo treatments. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Joyce

  • Babesia and apergilus
    I was diagnosed 2014 with Babisia. For years after being in a river in BeliIze I was so sick with stuff coming out of my skin. Way back in 03' Dr sent sample away and it came back cellulose. No help for years. Now in 15' I've come up with Apergilus in my sinuses. For years I have sweated. No help. Now I've had sinus surgery. Just before surgery I all of a sudden have double vision. Unsteady on my feet. Surgery did not help. I think I have invasive Apergilus and no one so far is helping me. I believe the fungus originated possibly from tick bite in Belize or from water in river. Asoergilus being a fungus does have spirochetes which are cellulose. Whatever,
    I'm a mess with no help.

  • Prilosec and increased heart rate
    I took Prilosec for more than ten years for my GERD which actually kept getting worse in spite of my eventually taking two Prilosec a day. One day I decided to quit drinking milk in an attempt to lose weight. I have always been a heavy milk drinker, at least one large glass every day at dinner. To my surprise, my GERD symptoms almost disappeared. After that, I started avoiding all dairy and then found out I am actually lactose intolerant. I have completely stopped all dairy unless I take a lactase pill and I have been able to completely stop taking taking Prilosec and am GERD free entirely. Some other interesting side effects I notice are: 1.About a 10 pound weight loss and 2.About a 20 beat decrease in my resting heart rate which used to be around 80-85 and is now 60-65.
  • 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.
  • Metoprolol succinate prescribed after i told doc i had cold air angina
    Told my Doc (next visit) after Angina diagnosis (for which he prescribed Metoprolol Succinate) that I also got Angina from breathing Cold Air and he laughed at me. Looked up on Internet and found it to be Prinzmetal Angina and when I later told my Doc he laughed at me again and then increased my Metoprolol Succinate from 25mg to 50mg. My Angina got worse and worse and I went back myself from 50mg to 25mg and then down to a half a 25mg tab and my Angina got better but didn't go away. Told Doc over the next year about Cold Air Angina and he would not listen but then I was at Cardiologist and he immediately changed my Metoprolol Succinate prescription himself to Verapamil and I am getting better and better each day and now no longer need my Nitro tabs.
