- Is there anything i can take for sunblock while taking hydroclorothizide?
I develop a red itchy rash while in the sun using sunblock and taking Hydro. I would like to have some sort of protection from the sun , as I tend to be outside a lot. Any help or suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks!
- I've been on effient for 2.5 years with virtually no problems other than bruising. dr switched me to plavix for lower cost. i would like to know medically if this is a good decision (1 answer)
I have been doing well taking Effient for 2.5 years since my heart attack in January, 2011. My cardiologist recently changed me to clopidogrel which I've been on for three days. I never experienced tiredness on effient, which I am experiencing now. The only side effect of Effient that I experienced is bruising and small bleeds. Bottom line: 1. Is effient safer for me knowing that it didn't seem to give me any side effects for 2.5 years? 2. could plavix be causing the tiredness? 3.I had no genetic testing for Plavix: is this a potential problem? Even though it costs more, I do have insurance and I would rather go back to effient if clopidogrel causes side effects I didn't have with Effient, and may also cause potential life threatening events peculiar to clopidogrel.

- Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.
Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.
This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.

- Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
- Lamotrigine severe rash
I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.
