Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Could requip cause insomnia?
    I've used Requip for years to control RLS. Lately it is less effective so I now take 6mg b/4/ bedtime... but also have insomnia and diahrrea

  • Does humira cause excessive sweating?
    Having psoriaticarthritis,fibromyalgia,psoriais,restless leg syndrome,roseacea and high blood pressure means complex health issues and a complex list of medication to go with it. Iam suffering extreme sweating,flushing and now a tickled cough. Now it could be due to going through the change (menopause) but that started a year ago and although I was getting the flushes and sweating,it was nothing like it is now! To me,it seems the excessive sweating started roughly a month after taking Humira. Having so many health issues I'm in tune with any changes and note and monitor them. I started Humira 10 months ago now. My Psoriasis has cleared completely so I'm really pleased. Usually,there's a trade off and you end up with something else! Could the issues I have be down to a single drug on the list,or a combination?
  • I just started taking paxil again and after 1 st day diahrea came. how long does it last and have you taken something for the diahrea?
    I just started Paxil and Buspar on the second day started having diahrea.
    Is this common and usually how long does it last? Do you take anything for it or let it run its course.

  • Tramadol and severe rls and restless arms
    After back surgery I was prescribed Tramadol for pain. After about a month I developed severe RLS and also restless arms that seemed to make it hard to breath. Like a weight on my chest. I noticed that after taking the Tramadol, only at night for sleep, the restless symptoms got worse for about an hour and then settled down some. Before long there was no settling down. My pain after several months being better in my back I, not liking to take medicine period, decided to stop the Tramadol. To my surprise my RLS came to almost a complete halt. After about a week it was gone completely.
  • Restless legs remedy
    After 24 years of restless legs I discovered that the cause was my joints. I have taken glucosamine & chondroitin as well as shark cartilage for 8 weeks and my symptoms have virtually disappeared. I did not see any improvement until after 6 weeks so please stay with this if you decide to give it a try.
  • Malignant melanoma while taking requip
    I have been on Requip for RLS for about 6 years, and have noticed an increase in basal cell (lowest variety of skin cancer), and in May 2014 had surgery to remove melanoma (dime sized, 4.5 mm deep in scalp), and then another recurrence of melanoma in September 2014 (also on the scalp, where about 2/3 of scalp was removed down to skull), and now considered Stage 3B. So I am doing everything in my power to keep from another recurrence. I am going to discontinue taking Requip, since I do not know if there is a connection, but I cannot afford to take that life threatening risk in my opinion.
