  • Ulcerative colitis from suboxone?
    Anyone else out there experiencing ulcerative colitis after multiple yearprescribed Suboxone? Suboxone stole a large portion of my life, and now I am considering going on a full-agonist analgesic until the buprenorphine bond has broken, and no more presence of it in my plasma. Insane!
  • Effexor near death experience
    In 1999 I was prescribed 75mg time release Effexor. I took one pill and 4 hours later I became dizzy and it felt like a cold patch in the middle of my head. I ckecked my eyes as i started seeing too much light, my puples were dilated, all black. I managed to get up stairs and asked my mom to get me to hospital. I passed out, and as crazy as it sounds I had a vision of my nana. I knew I was gone.she told me to wake up. I wasn't breathing. I could hear my mom talking on the phone to 911saying I had no pulse. (She is an RN) the ambulance came and they couldn't find my blood pressure. I couldn't see very well. The ER doctors said to continue taking the meds and sent my home. I stopped taking the Effexor. I had the side effects for many months. I get aura migraines now and have extreme sensitivity to other drugs.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Garcinia and high blood pressure
    I am taking a weight loss pill last couple of days. Last two days after I ate cheese, I had headache and high blood pressure,nausea. Yesterday whole day I had stomach upset, pain, nausea. I am not going to take ot anymore.

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • The itching is worst after showering. I have changed everything to ease the situation. Now it happens at random times, for example in a shop or in bed. I can't stand it much longer.
