  • I am on 2 x daily rifampin and 4 x daily cephalixin 500mg and and awake exhausted after 8-9 hours sleep and the fatigue is unbelievable all day every day, is this "normal" or should i investigate ore (1 answer)
    Had total knee replacement 11/12, bad from the start, knee swollen/hot/painful/unstable for most of 2 years before a mechanically successful Revision that found a loose patella and both ends of the prostheses loose. In spite of 10-12 aspirations and almost as many samples sent to labs for testing the result was always "no growth after a week". Following the revision, 10 days after, surgeons office called and says yes you have a staph E infection. Immediate therapy with 6 weeks of 3 X day IV PLUS 2 x per day oral Rifampin.
    IV over but now on the 2 X day Rifampin PLUS 4 X day 500mg cephalexin and the fatigue is unbelievable. Wake up exhausted after 8 hours sleep, daily hour plus mid afternoon naps.

  • Avoid lisinopril or any ace inhibitor
    This was the only drug I was taking other than low-dose aspirin 3x/week.
    Within 2 days I began coughing, as though something was deep in my lungs; became long severe coughing fits than threw out my back, sore all over. Then began runny nose, exhaustion, occasional mild chest pain. Not connecting the dots, after a month of this I returned to my dr., who prescribed an antibiotic and inhaler, saying I had asthma! After a week starting feeling worse, sore throat and sore lungs from coughing, in bed from exhaustion.
    After reading on-line about identical symptoms from LISINOPRIL, I immediately stopped it; now, 2 weeks later I am beginning to feel better -- cough much better. I am hoping I will be one of the lucky ones who does not have the cough continue. By the way, this drug reduced my bp from 140/100 to 110/80 BUT I'd rather have high bp than take this poison.
    Now I learn than many deaths have resulted from use of Lisinopril. Had this drug caused my death, no one would know my story as I have no relatives to tell it; am assuming many unreported have died and of course are not able to go on-line and tell their story post-death!
    All I can do is ask WHY is this drug allowed to be sold -- even stranger, in my case the drugstore is giving this poison away at no charge -- a first; but WHY?
  • Low potasium and mood
    While being treated for cancer about 3 years ago and thus taking a number of blood tests, I was diagnosed with low potassium level and prescribed a regular dosage. I had noticed that when I forgot to take my potassium pills, I soon began to feel more depressed than usual and to feel anxious. Taking the ills soon alleviated these symptoms. (I have had depression for most of my life but long ago decided against taking any of the anti-depression Rx pills because I disliked their side effects, especially on my ability to think clearly.) Very recently I finally got around to looking on the Internet to see whether low potassium was associated with mood disorders _ and I found that it was. This site apparently didn't study anyone my age (I'm 78), so I decided to offer these comments. I have at least one grandchild who has been formally diagnosed with depression, and one who is ADHD. Before finding that the relationship of mood and low potassium was formally known, I had suggested to their parent in a low-key way that perhaps she and they should check with their doctors about their potassium levels. Now I'm quite sure that is something they and their doctors should consider. Meanwhile, I am glad to have found formal study of what had been to me only an anecdotal kind of belief that the two were linked. More importantly, in all my years of doctor visits, no doctor and no psychologist has ever mentioned this link to me. Therefore, I hope that somehow this link is brought more to the forefront of medical attention.
  • Loss of menstruation
    Hi
    I stopped using setralin 50 µg in August 2014. (I have been taken it in 1 year for my PMS). After stopping taking the pills my period become very short in september and then desappeard. I got a funcional cyste (about 30 mm) and after 10-days treatment with progesterone I got my period in the end of oktober. Two weeks afterwards I got a spare bleeding and my gyn thought that it my be an ovulation bleeding. Anyhow I have not got my period yet. The samples taken in oktober showed low FSH and heigt E2. The doctor explained that it is posible that stopping setralin could cause this hormonal imbalance. I must say that my periods were not so regular for very long time like during that year with setralin but I had other side effects like problem with concentartion, nussea etc.
    For many years ago I was on Zoloft but I had not experienced the same problem. When I started the treatment this time they did not want to give me zoloft (because of the price). I had no choice but i experienced many symptoms from different generica of Setralin. I will meet my doctor om Monday again.
  • Suboxone treatment may have caused my trichotillomania
    It's a long story of how I became addicted to opiates after 15+ years of chronic pain, but I decided to give up pain killers and try suboxone/subutex treatment. Shortly thereafter, I began pulling hair. First from my head, then when the bald spots became too obvious I started pulling from all over. It seemed to be triggered by stress or anxiety but not always. I did not make an association until recently, when I finally stopped the suboxone. It was two weeks of miserable withdrawal, much worse than from pain killers themselves, but I am finally out of the haze I'd be in all of that time, and I have no urge to pull hair whatsoever. I don't know how often the association of suboxone use and trichotillomania has been examined, but I wanted to share my experience in case anyone else is in a similar situation. Also, if you are considering starting suboxone treatment, don't. Withdrawal from opiates will lead to a few pretty rough days, but that's nothing compared to what you'll go through during suboxone withdrawal.
