Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can combo of subutex and carfate cause joint pain (1 answer)
    I am taking Carafate and Nexium for the treatment of several stomach ulcers. In addition I am on Subutex for maintenance of opiate dependence. I am having severe joint pain with this combination. Has anyone else had this situation or reaction?
  • I have been on amlodipine for approximately 3 months and have had terrible swelling in my legs and ankles along with pain and itching. should i be taken off this medication?
    I was previously taking Propranolol for blood pressure which didn't bother me at all, but last year I developed a breathing problem and was given Symbicort to help get rid of wheezing. The Symbicort and Propranolol don't mesh well so I was then put on Amlodipine. The swelling, pain and itching occurred right away. I asked the pharmacist about it and also my doctor and they both said a small percentage of people have this problem on this medication. I have tried many times to get my doctor to take me off of this medication but he insists it is best for me, but I disagree. I really don't want to have this problem for the rest of my life and I also won't have any skin left on my legs from the scratching, not to mention the pain that accompanies the swelling which seem to creep up to my knees and thighs and sometimes is so painful I just go to bed to lay down and hopefully the hydroclorithiazide will remove some of this water so that pain will go away. The doctor also doubled my dose of Losartin and Hydroclorithiazide. I'm up about 4-6 times a night going to the bathroom so it also interrupts my sleep. Is anyone else having this problem. I would prefer to go back on the Propranolol and get something other than Symbicort that won't interact with each other. Then I won't have pain and itching all the time. Does anyone have any input on this. I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks. Debbie CB
  • I have been on cymbalta for about 2 yrs. within the last 3 months my legs and feet have been swelling. is that normal after taking the drug that long of a time? (1 answer)
    I take very large doses of Vit D because of very low D level.
    Take Allegra for allergies.
    Take Lisinipril for high blood pressure
    Cymbalta for fibromyalgia and pain and depression, 60 mg
  • Is the pancreatic malfunction caused by abilify irreversible or stopping the drug can restore normal levels of sugar in the blood
    I want to know if stopping the use of Abilify will restore the normal functioning of the Pancreas. Reducing the dosage would reduce the levels of sugar in the blood.
  • Has abilify affected your ability to make good decisions?
    My husband and I are 73. We had a paid off home and money in the bank until the past 3 years. We have made some terrible decisions and now we are practically penniless. We couldn't understand why we had made such bad decisions and let someone talk us into losing our money. We have also been on Abilify about the same amoount of time and I noticed that the commercials say a side affect can be lack of judgement or something to that effect. Has anyone else had this happen?

  • Swollen+painful ankle after 2 weeks on tecfidera
    Actually, I was taking DiMethylFumarate capsules made by a pharmacy since 2 years (Jan 2013-Dec 2014). Switched to Tecfidera before Xmas 2014 and two weeks later I noticed unexplainable pain in my left ankle. The pain appears and disappears rather randomly, it is always only the left leg (I had a serious bone break of my right ankle some 23 years ago, so it was really strange that the pain is only in the left one). Later I realized, that the pain gets stronger in the afternoon/evening. And then noticed, that my left ankle is swollen.
  • I take abilify and i have hemerroids
    I take Abilify and all the side effects so fare are posted above
  • Avastin--swelling of leg and foot--macular degeneration (2 responses)
    I had my first shot of Avastin for Macular Degeneration in April 2014. My left leg and foot began swelling so much that I was sent to the ER. Doctors thought it was another blood clot, but it was not.

    This is December and the swelling is worse.
  • Androgel for secondary hypogonadism
    Severe swelling in legs, ankles and feet after being on my feet for more than one hour. Pain in calves and ankles. Feels like they're being squeezed or compressed. Pain dissipates after laying down for a few hours. Swelling never completely dissipates. Always some swelling in ankles.
  • Bpd and insomnia with abilify and cymbalta
    I am currently in recovery from BPD, but still have some traits. I also suffer from depression. I suffer with insomnia also. I have noticed that if I forget to take my meds, I have a higher chance of not sleeping that night.

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • My feet and ankles will swell when I am sitting down, working at my computer for long periods of time. The swelling decreases slowly as I move around the next day. This did not occur until about a month after I started taking OTC Nexium (one daily). I may skip a dose here and there if I forget. I have not experienced any other side-effects that concern me.
    Could the edema be from the Nexium? What else could be causing this new change to my body?

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Difficulty walking - both legs are weak. More weakness in left leg where buttock pain exists. I was diagnosed with ALS in October 2013. I have arthritis and partially degenerated disc in lumbar spine. Have been experiencing the leg jerking, twitching and cramping in both legs since 2012. Weakness started in both legs early 2013 and has progressively gotten worse. Now I am having severe pain in left buttock that has been going on for about a month. I also have pain in neck and right arm due to cervical arthritis (severe) and several bulging discs. My jaw has TMJ, but now is worse. Both arms are starting to weaken too. I have been wondering if my spine problems could be the cause of ALS? Neurologists are not interested in exploring that possibility.
