Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • How long does it take for pressure to return to normal if you quit taking norco?
    I stopped taking Norco as soon as I figured out that this might be the cause for my raised pressure. My doctor put me on drops and said I would have to stay on them for life. The drops burn and inflame my eye to the point of redness and pain. I went for a second opinion and tried another drop with the same result When I called both doctors back and told them about the Norco, neither think it is a problem. There is such a thing as too low pressure which can cause a detached retina. Since I had a detached retina in the other eye, I am worried about maybe lowering my pressure to low in my remaining good eye if I continue to take the drops. The P.A. said it is 'highly unlikely' my retina will detach. I would rather hear 'not possible' or quit the drops.

  • Is sciatica and macrobid induced muscle and joint pain reversible?
    Was prescribed Macrobid twice in one month for Bladder infection. Experienced severe joint and muscle pain during the seven days I was taking it. That was back in September, 2014. It is now mid-December. Is this condition reversible?

  • Percocet and memory loss
    A close friend of mine has been using prescription Percocet for 5 to 6 years. Her MD first prescribed the lowest dosage possible to be taken 3 to 4 times daily for pain. I am aware that this medication frequently needs to be increased because it will become less effective. I don't know how many times he has increased the dosage but it has been many times. I believe now she is taking the highest dosage of it up to four to six times daily and six tablets at a time. I have made several attempts to tell her the information I know about Percocet and to have her to ask her MD about her now short and long term memory problems. Her response is to shout at me, telling me she needs that much for pain and to mind my own business when I tell her about the negative side effects I see, especially her daily and hourly memory problems. She has also said she has no reason to speak to her doctor about memory problems. I think that is because she fears he might lower the dosage. My concern about her poor memory only causes her to tell me I am the one with a bad memory, even though the only pain meds I infrequently take are OTC ones. According to my MD, I have been told my memory for my age of 63 is perfectly fine and better than most for my age. Also I take no medications with the side effects that cause memory problems. In addition when my MD prescribes new medication I always read the info that accompanies them, do research online and pay attention to all warnings and side effect info. The few times I have had side effects they have only been GI problems and I have consulted my MD regarding those and work with my MD for an alternative medication. My friend NEVER EVER reads any of the accompanying material that comes with her prescriptions. Also she never looks up her medications online to get additional information, including possible side effects. I worry about her very much and fear she now has an addiction to Percocet. Several years ago she asked her MD for Chantix to stop smoking, never reading the info supplied with the prescription. I urged to read the info and side effects. She declined, telling me she knew what she was doing. After two weeks of using Chantix she had a mental break down and ended up on the psych ward of our local hospital for 3 weeks. That medication was the first that began to cause her to have memory problems. She accepted that fact for about a month then dismissed it claiming her memory problems were over. They weren't because she was still taking Percocet. I understand no one wants to be told by a friend they suspect that person has memory problems, but I haven't done so to be mean or cruel, but only out of great love and concern. At this point with all the Percocet she takes daily she really is at a level to be considered an addict and I fear soon she will convince her MD to increase the dosage because it no longer controls her pain. I've written this review as a cautionary tale to inform others to be vigilant with their family, friends and loved ones as Percocet can and does cause short and long term memory loss. Although all my efforts to assist and speak to my friend have failed, please don't give up on those in your life who you notice are experiencing memory loss signs that take Percocet. If possible speak to them or their MD. Oh, and be prepared to be yelled at that you are the one with memory problems or to be told to mind your own business. And please, please read the information that accompanies all of your medications.
