- Interactions between quineprox (hydroxychloroquine) &zyvox (linezolid)
I had foot soft tissue infection and hospitalized for two days and given IV for Cipro. Then I was released from the hospital and given Zyvox 600MG twice a day for ten days. Meanwhile, I am taking 2000 MG cellcept and 400MG Hydroxychloriquine for more than 10 years to control my lupus. Around the sixth days I had horrible joint pain for my whole body ans swollen on my hands and foot. I spoke to doctor, doctor said I should finish my zyvox doses since my foot infection does not cure yet. Then after two days I stopped the ZYvox, my joint pain getting better and swollen figers getting better but I feel headache and has fever. After surfing the internet, I found the interactions between hydroxychloroquine and the Zyvox could cause "The risk of peripheral neuropathy may be increased during concurrent use of two or more agents that are associated with this adverse effect. Patient risk factors include diabetesand age older than 60 years. In some cases, the neuropathy may progress or become irreversible despite discontinuation of the medications". I stooped taking Zyvox now, however, I am still taking my hydroxchloroquine and need to continue maybe life long. My appintment with my Rheumatologist is a month later. My pcp and Podiatrist seem have no idea about the interactions between the two medications. I would like to find out if I continue take hdroxycholoroquin, though I stopped the Zvox will still harm my nerv system? Should I stop taking Hydroxycholoroquine? How do I treat my headache and fever? Thanks

- Lamotrigine severe rash
I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.
- Dilantin causes false positive testing
False positive hampering custody..no use of cocaine..private test has benzoylecgonine. My doctor and pharmacist have both said Dilantin has caused false positive. DCF want "expert" statements..where do I find an expert?
- Why was this drug not tested for people with anemia problems?
My husband has had myelodysplastic syndrome diagnosed in 2004. In 2010, his HGB went down to 10.2. RBC 3.00. He was right next to treatment when the HGB went to 10. For some unknown reason, his blood counts improved. By June 2013, his HGB was 11.9, RBC 33.9 8/3/13 he was found to have a 75% blockage of his LAD and a stent was implanted. Brilinta was started. 11/7/13 his HGB dropped to 10.7; RBC 31.9. 1/9/14 his HGB dropped to 10.3; RBC to 2.98, the lowest ever recorded for him. Through all of this, his platelets have remained relatively stable, 234 - 222. We checked with all our docs about whether Brilinta was safe for him. There is absolutely nothing in any information relative to the effect Brilinta would have for anyone with some kind of anemia problem! How can that be when this is a drug manipulating the blood??? We are checking for any other cause for this drop in his blood, including any internal bleeding. But he shows no sign for any of these. We will have one more blood test in March. If it is negative again, a bone marrow biopsy will be done to make sure it is not the MDS becoming active again. But why was there no testing done for people with anemia problems? Why have I had to go through all this research trying to find the answers? The FDA is now doing some postmarketing research on Brilinta for reports of pancytopenia, neutropenia, thrombocytopenia and more. I have also talked with Brilinta's people twice now, but they have nothing to say that will address this issue. Why not??
