  • Support group for people who take Lyrica
    I have gained about 35 pounds, and I have the cognitive effects listed in the prescribing information--problems with thinking and concentration." I've been off Lyrica once, and the side effects went away, but I couldn't get out of bed in the morning

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Does topamax effect sexual desire and cause weight gain (2 answers)
    I have taken topamax for 10 years and have been gaining weight steadily every year. My doctor says the medication is not the reason because Topamax causes people to loose weight. I have also voiced my concerns to him that since I started taking this medication I have no desire for sex. He says this medication would not affect this. Please help so I can get him to change my medication.
  • Can sulfalazine cause bed wetting
    I had been taking the Sulfalazine for around 6 months with no real side effects, Then twice in one week I lost control of my bladder while sleeping. This has never happened to me before. My GP took me off the sulfalazine and I was fine, He had thought they where causing some sort of convulsion while Sleeping. About 6 weeks later my GP rand and told me to go back on them as he no longer thought that they where causing the problem, 5 days in and it has just happened again, My bed and myself soaked, It's completley frustrating, Can any one please help with any suggestions?
  • Have you noticed extreme edema after taking both of these drugs?
    I have been taking Topamax for years for treatment of migraine headaches. Two months ago I was placed on Lithium and Latuda for Mood Disorder NOS. I had a host of bad reactions to both drugs and have since been removed. A week ago I started taking Tegretol. Since coming down off the Lithium and starting the Tegretol with the Topamax I have started retaining another water to fill up Death Valley. Just wondering if this was a aide effect of the medication or something else.
  • How are people being treated with may-thurner syndrome?
    I was diagnosed with May-Thurner Syndrome after two DVT's five years apart. Have been treated with Coumadin for the last 10 years but now a Doctor has changed me to Plavix and aspirin therapy.
  • How often does thromboyctopenia occur?
    73 year old patient with thrombocytopenia of unknown origin. He has failed Rituxin treatments and initial therapy with steroids has actually caused his platelets to lower. Requesting to see if his current medications may be the culprit.

  • Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
    I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.

  • Constipation due to nyquil
    Very bad constipation. Had lower stomach pains for days
  • Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
    When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.

  • From this study (11 months ago):

  • I have an non-typical pulmonary stenosis, MPA aneurysm directly above that valve. The left ventricle was also enlarged due to the stress of my third & final pregnancy put on my heart.

    On March 1st (this year) I went to the ER as none of my asthma treatment weren't working. After several tests a pulmonary embolism was found in my bronchial trunk. It was successfully dissolved with heparin in 48 hours. The PE put more stress on the left ventricle. As a result I was sent home to be on bed rest as I only had trouble breathing while mobile, under stress or attempting to carry on a conversation. At rest, my heart rate & oxygen meter would go back to normal.

    That is no longer the case. When I went in to my Asthma & allergy doctor's office to do my PFT, it was worse than it has ever been, including before I quit smoking 5yrs. ago. This started at the same time I began taking Coumadin & became worse as I reached therapeutic INR levels.

  • I suffer from severe to moderate memory loss a friend told me it was due to klonopin It has been 7 years though since I suffered a concussion in a car accident. Been trying to get disability forever. I can't even handle a minimum wage job bc the steps I have to take r instantly out of my brain. I have a masters degree. So I don't think it's the concussion I think it's the meds. The muscle relaxant r brand new so we can't blame them. So could it be the klonopin
