Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Does ritalin or dexedrine cause muscle shortening resulting in joint pain (1 answer)
    I took 10 to 30 mg of Dexedrine per day for 1.5 years for AADD. During that time constant and excessive shortening of my quads (without pain or cramping) caused my patellas to ride up on the lateral side of the femoral groove when the quads were highly active such as when rising from a squat after getting something from the bottom shelf at a grocery store. (This is commonly called a partial dislocation of the patella). My patellas never fully dislocated partly because the pain was so great that it was immediately relieved by quickly dropping to the floor and sitting to take all pressure off of the patella. This condition became progressively worse as the dose of Dexedrine was increased from 10 to 25 mg. I had never experienced this condition or any other problem with my patellas before.



    Removal of all Dexedrine COMPLETELY cured this problem in five weeks. Other drugs including gabapentin remained unchanged during that period.



    1) Has anyone had or heard of the condition described, and was it due to Dexedrine or another stimulant?



    2) I am considering using Ritalin instead of Dexedrine, but am concerned the same thing will happen. Has anyone had muscle or joint problems on Ritalin?



    Thanks
  • Has anyone developed sleepwalking while on low dose of seroquel

  • 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.
  • Interactions of rantidine 150 mg & theophylline 200mg taken in am
    I started taking 150mg rantidine with 200mg theophylline, and zyrtec in the morning before breakfast. Within 1 hour of taking my medications, even after eating, I found myself overwhelmed with anxiety, restlessness, the inability to think, and the feeling of dread.
    I initially started taking rantidine in the evening, an hour before bed time, and found that it did not cause such a strong reaction. I really believe that these medications, when taken together, can really cause an adverse reaction for a person. I mean, it did me.
  • Neurotin as an anabolic
    Takave been taking anabolic steroids for about 6 weeks my games were linear unlock the entire time. When I started taking Neurontin with anabolic steroids my anabolism was increased by at least 30%. There was no change in diet or any other variables as far as I can tell. The only variable was the neurontin.it just so happens did my workout partner is taking Neurontin and getting the some effect. I know for a fact it affects the digestive system.
  • 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.
