Comments from or about the patient: After taking these meds for the treatment of rosacea for which I applied the wash and lotion on my face only, I was diagnosed with open-angle glaucoma followed by a cataract in my right eye. The first question my eye doctor asked following elevated pressures in both eyes was had I been taking any steroids. I had not but my dermatologist mentioned later that the Metronidazole cream was also a steroid.

open angle (3 years ago):

My dermatologist did not tell me that this is a steroid and while I did say I suffer from severe glaucoma .. metronidazole had still been perscribe to be used twice daily. I have noticed my eyes to be sore and dry. Am concerned.

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Four years ago received comprehensive neurological workup to ro m.s. still have certain symptoms, including moderate to severe itching nos, intercostal muscle spasms. ???? (2 answers)
    Am wondering if I should pursue additional testing for M.S. Itching has not subsided on back and lower abdomen; dermatological exams all negative. Intercostal muscle spasms intermittent, but severe at times. Now have a swollen lymph node in groin persisting for 3+ weeks. Should I be concerned that M.S. is still a possibility? All neuro tests for M.S., including MRIs, electromyographic studies, etc. all negative four years ago.
  • Does clonazapam cause tinnitus or ringing in the ears?
    Patient fell a year ago and injured her neck and broke a bone in her arm. Has had severe pain in her neck. Getting acupuncture frequently. Recently tried to change medication from Valium to Clonazepam, and developed severe tinnitus. She said she only missed two days of Valium. She also says she has skipped days without taking valium and never had a problem. She says Clonazepam caused the tinnitus. I can't find anything that states a side effect of clonazepam is tinnitus.
  • 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?
  • Bipolar 2 since 1975. recently d/c'd lithium. looking for a treatment that will not make glaucoma condition worse (1 answer)
    I am trying to determine which medication to use now that my 40 year successful run with Lithium is over. (The kdneys say it's time to quit). However, I do not want to increase intraocular pressure by using a medication known to increase said pressure. Most importantly, I do not want to lose my livelihood or cause my family and friends unforeseen difficulty due to ineffective medications. I have little faith in the alternatives and see Depakote, Geodon, and Lamictal as poor seconds at
    best. Any suggestions???
  • Looking for other testimonies who have had more severe side effects than those listed from taking metronidazole & alcohol? (1 answer)
    Had 4 beers over 4 hour period on last day of taking Metronidazole. Was vomiting & basically acting totally out of character as in wild & argumentative - similar to being bad drunk. Went to sleep & woke up with basically no memory of what happened.

  • Severe leg/foot/ankle swelling from doxycycline
    Was given five-day course of doxycycline for sinusitis and laryngitis. By end of third day had ankle edema (never had before), then MASSIVE leg/foot/ankle edema by fourth day Discontinued on fifth day after research revealed side effect of doxycycline. Took almost a week for swelling to go comletely away. Also felt completely exhausted and seemed to make the coughing and laryngitis much worse also.
  • Cdifficile treatment
    I had drug (cipro) induced cdifficile for three and a half years and was hospitalized 3 times and went through absolute hell until my Dr. finally agreed to do a fecal transplant. Even then the first transfer done via a lower bowel infusion didnt work. Two weeks after the first one he did a full colonoscopy transfer going up as high as my appendix and that one worked immediatly and I have had no furthur bowel problems, no diarrea at all and its' now been well over a year. I took every type of cdiff drug imaginable prior to that. I had to stay on Vancomyicin all the time or I would be spending all my time going back and forth to the john 20 or 30 times a day. I was so ill that I could bearly keep my head up. I couldnt eat without an urgent bathroom trip. I had to wear Depends all the time, my skin was raw and sore from constant wiping. I was given Tinture of Morphine to slow me down. That helped some. My veins collapsed from all the test shots and from the many pints of saline to keep me hydrated. My heart stopped from a lowering of my potassium level and I had to get a pacemaker to control my heart rate. I spent a fortune on the drugs,some costing as much as $1200.00 a month, more than I make working and working was rough. I would have to go to the restroom so often and I work outside where there were frequently no facilities. I would have to bring a complete change of clothes and a disinfecting kit with me to cleanup the restroom. I washed my hands raw. You cant leave that for someone else or they might get sick too as it is highly infectious. Hospitals are not that meticulous either. I once had to go to a Long Island Hospital that failed the precautions test miserably. They assigned me to a room with another patient whose family wanted to eat their meals in our shared room and then use the bathroom. I pitched a fit on them and told them no way were they going to eat in that room or use the bathroom. I can't imagine what that hospital was thinking. Anyway you get the idea....3 years of expensive treatment and all I needed was some healthy donor poop and someone willing to mix it up in a blender and put it in syringe and put it up the wassoo and I was done. Dont let them give you all the expensive treatment if you have a resistant case of cdiff, insist on the fecal transplant right off, you will be very glad you did. The donor should be someone in your family, preferably someone young with lots of good flora for digestion. Someone without other gut problems...they need to test them too. Bring it in the afternoon before and Bingo,you will be back on track the next day. I am open to answer questions or be tested orhelp with anything else you might want to know, just ask me.
  • Tingling feet and hands
    I have used flagyl 3 times and after stopping the use of this medication my feet and hands have became so tingly and itchy That its becoming unbearable.
  • My experience with lyme
    My final semester at college-

    Woke up to extreme inflammation in what was determined to be a portion of my trapezius on the left side length of my next. It was accompanied by severely swollen lymph nodes throughout my entire body. I went about my day with what to me was seemingly a bad neck cramp and oncoming cold. In the afternoon I decided to participate in Track practice and what occurred after I am unsure about in terms of its relation to me performing physically or an autoimmune response against my peripheral nervous system. The next morning I woke up the left side of my trapezius was completely dysfunctional from its attachment to my cranium all the way down to the mid point of my back. It was accompanied by inflammation and sore pain at the point where the next connects to the shoulder girdle. Over the course of the next 8 months I went undiagnosed with Lyme, having seen neurologists and orthopedics in an attempt to find a solution. Reflecting on the first three months, I experienced significant effects on my emotional stability and cognitive capability. I would have severe mood swings--rage, depression, excitement-- and I would have difficulty with memory and train of thought- all of which can be confirmed by multitude of classmates. By the 8 month mark I had began to feel mild joint pain, particularly in areas I had formerly injured in athletic activity (ankles, lower back). At this point, my accessory nerve had not regenerated in terms of the portion affecting my trapezius, didn't regain any lost muscle function. I saw my physician, who discovered the Lyme infection. I took doxycycline over the next 3 months and saw significant improvement in my trapezius, which was accompanied by a decrease in lymph node size, as proven by comparison of MRIs. My fatigue dissipated and my moods/cognition returned to normal. I've regained about 70% of the function I formerly had with my trapezius (as compared to 0% prior to treatment). I wanted to write this because I have yet to see a similar case, understand the ambiguity of Lyme disease and the array of conditions it causes.
  • Symptons from taking doxycyclin
    I recently went in for a physical, everything was normal except my Creatinine levels. I had severe symptoms from burning hands/knuckles to feeling very tingly like cold needles. Also, burned very easily from sun even with 50 sun screen applied. Should I be worried about the Creatinine levels be abnormally high?

  • *I have noticed breakage of hair.Trying to use coconut and olive oil for hair.Not used on scalp.

    *I first noticed thinning after using selenium face wash.I was told I could use it on my scalp. But I looked online and saw that it could cause hairloss. I quit using it after a few tries on my face only.

    *I dont know what to do or try. I've been told to try Nioxin , I see on the label that it has sulfates and that isnt supposed to be good on the hair.

    *I dont want to try Rogaine if it has to be maintained or lose the hair you have when there might be something that wont cause hairloss if I stop using it.But if that is the only choice....I would .

    I have heard Viviscal might be good? I've read Revita might be good. I just don't know ! Please help...:(

  • Do not take all drugs listed at same time. Am on "pulse therapy" with antimacrobials. Do not take coq10 when on Mepron/malarone. Take Florastor probiotic 2x's a day to fight c.diff & other probiotics. Also take FiberSmart, DigestSmart, & slippery elm, marshmallow root for GI regularity. Drink at least 4 cups green tea daily. CDC confirmed lyme positive in 2010 (September), was bit in May of same year. Had psychiatric & cognitive dysfunction immediately following rash. Further testing show active infection in brain - neuro-lyme dx'd.
