Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I am experiencing myelodysplastic syndrome symptoms but it is said that it doesn't typically get diagnosed for people my age. although everything is spot on and i need to know whats wrong.
I have been doing remicade treatments for about four years now. Lately I have gotten a UTI, an I get random bruises every single day, I also get super tired, my body aches, and I get fevers for hours on end without them breaking. I have no idea whats wrong because this has never happened before but someone told me that it looks like MDS and I looked into it and I have all the symptoms just am not in the age group for it. I was hoping someone would know if there is anything else I could look up. I am aware that remicade long term wise can cause leukemia and that is why this is such a huge concern. Please give me feedback thank you.

- Ulcerative colitis from avastin
Developed ulcerative colitis four days after Avastin injection in eye for myopic degeneration.
- Stelara worsened existing mild endometriosis to severe endometriosis
My rheumatologist switched my biologic psoriatic arthritis medicine from Humira to Stelara 9 months ago. My other choice was to add methotrexate to Humira, which I have taken before and didn't want to do because of the fatigue and possible recurrence of elevated liver enzymes. Within a month I had heavy uterine bleeding 3 times within one month. As a pharmacist I was concerned about this strange side effect and my gynecologist agreed with my concerns that I may have migrated endometriosis as well as worsening symptoms of uterine endometriosis originally diagnosed in 2000. I've had psoriasis since childhood beginning in the mid 1970s. Arthritis was diagnosed shortly after I completed endometriosis treatment in in 2001. I have reported the adverse event to Abbvie and encourage anyone else to do so. For those of us in this unfortunate group, the company needs to study WHY Stelara feeds endometriosis (does it elevate estrogen levels?) and why it causes a premenopausal woman to have vaginal bleeding/period and/or bleeding at migration sites within 3 days of an injection. I can only imagine the disastrous consequences for any woman on Stelara who has estrogen receptor positive breast cancer history in her family. This side effect is on par as being as serious as those seen with Thalidomide.
- 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!
- Adverse effect of azithromycin
patients immunesystem showed very bad response to azithromycin adminstered as 1000mg per day 3 days and then 1000mg once a week for 6 weeks -
a previously chronic sinuitis flared up as did a over 30 year old infection in a broken toe -
dicillin was given for 10 days 3000mg per day / 1000mg 3 times daily - with good effect -
the patents journal shows evidence of similar occurence a decade ago when taking Klacid uno also of the macrolid family -
it appears macrolids can have severe adverse effect on some patients immunesystem
- Azithromycin side effect skin hyperpigmentation (1 response)
My 6-year-old daughter took 5-day course azithromycin 3 times in 5 months for sinus infections. Do not recall exactly when hyperpigmentation began appearing all over front of neck, but definitely by the 3rd month after initial dose, with subsequent darkening upon taking two more prescriptions within the 5 months. Disappeared after treating 1x/day for 2 days with aloe vera gel directly from the plant rubbed all over darkened areas; all hyperpigmentation scrubbed off with oatmeal/honey scrub on 3rd day. No recurrence until about 6 months later with minimal to moderate autumn sun exposure, recurrence all over front of neck again, even though never took azithromycin beyond the 3 prescriptions. About two weeks after this started, now entire side of one ankle is hyperpigmented. Very concerned how much more it will spread. Will up aloe vera gel application frequency in hopes to get rid of it. Stay away from this drug! It is definitely too new of a drug to be prescribing for kids!
