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 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.

  • Death in doses of plavix (1 response)
    My G.P.s have given me a death sentence by keeping me on Plavix for nearly five and a half years. I kept telling them of all my side effects like terrible fatigue, difficulty in walking a few yards, lack of breath, loss of hair and loss of vocabulary. I never associated this with the drug they'd given me after my T.I.A. I thought my under active thyroid might be the cause but was told that was fine. They wanted me to take antidepressants and I insisted I was NOT depressed. Finally they agreed to a scan and it was found that I had developed alveolitis. No ...they couldn't tell me how this had happened. I had no connection with any of the causes of this 'farmers lung' But now I know as I found for myself on the internet. Plavix which I stopped immediately and took small aspirin instead . I have been off the deadly drug Plavix for three months but am no better as the alveolitis has now taken over. Soon I will swallow all the antidepressents I have been given as I feel my life is virtually over .....I can't even use a feather duster without collapsing in a chair. I haven't been back to the surgery since I stopped taking this drug. I can't trust my G.P.s anymore.

  • Syntroid and pruritus
    I have been on levothyroxine for more than ten years and have had two episodes, each lasting over several months of unbearable itching. Doctors seem to deny any connection but are also unable identify the cause of the itching. None of the tests pick anything. Antihistamines are not much of a help. I am still in the throes of the second episode and life is plain, simple miserable.
  • Thrush while on prograf
    I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
  • Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
    I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
