- What's the danger of taking trazodone for sleep and tylenol 3 with codeine for pain?
I'm dealing with bone on bone osteoarthritis of the knees and taking 25mg Trazodone for sleep and Tylenol 3/codeine 2x daily for pain. I'm weaning off 25mg of trazadone every 5 wks from 200mg I was taking for 9yrs. I'm now down to 25mg and Mar 27/15 I'll be completely off this medication. It's amazing my knees are not getting worse that's why I'm taking myself off these medications because I want to guard against liver problems or anything else they may cause.I know when I don't take the Tylenol for 15hrs or more withdrawals start and as soon as I take them it's ok. I want to wean from Tylenol as well after I'm off Trazodone and leery of the withdrawals. Anyone out there experiencing the same problems? I'd appreciate info if you are please. Thank you

- Caffeine, anhydrous and sodium benzoate injection?
A treatment has been prescribed but cannot be administered due to the decision by American Regent to not release their Caffeine and Sodium Benzoate Injection product (Caffeine, anhydrous (125 mg/mL) and Sodium benzoate (125 mg/mL)
2 mL single-dose vial). Does anyone take this via injection or IV, and if so, can you identify the source of the Caffeine and Sodium Benzoate Injection product? Thank you!
- Hunger from tylenol and coedine? (1 answer)
I'm 17 years old and I started taking Acetaminophen w/ Codeine No. 3 for pain due to complications from wisdom tooth extraction (I had two dry sockets and one of them was infected). I don't have any known allergies to medication, though I do take about 10 different medications for severe season allergies. Since starting the medication, however, I have noticed that around an hour afterwards, I started having a great deal of hunger and was drowsy about a half hour after taking the pill.
I just wanted to know. Are these normal side effects people have with this medication or is it just me?
- What are the weird pains in my belly
I've had this weird belly pain for the past few days now, I've been taking co codamol for a while now which doesn't seem to help, I can't explain the feeling of pain I've never had this before. I thought it was just because I needed a number 2 but that didn't help either :/

- Lorazepam nearly killed me during cancer treatment
Day 31 of cold turkey and I want to die. It is a roller coaster from body tics and sweats to rage and crying in one day. I felt so good the 4h day of c/t. It was like before my cancer diagnosis. My bowels are better off Lorazepam. I threw up during bowel movements from the pain. Off Lorazepam first normal bowel movement in over 2 years. Stomach so damaged by Lorazepam that I have absolutely no appetite. I force myself to eat. Neuropathy in hands nearly gone. Feet are better but slower. Lymphedema that appeared after one year on Lorazepam is now gone. I have full range of motion.

motoboy on Jan, 29, 2015:
I've recently stopped taking ibuprofen after many years of taking it daily. I take between 800 to 1500 mg a day, mostly before bed to sleep. I have had a lot of sport injuries do it was for joint pain. It's been about a week since taking any and I'm getting really bad headaches. Can't seem to find this as a withdrawal issue... any one else experience this? Thanks!
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I have been experiencing increasing muscle pain, stiffness and soreness in my legs and wonder if this could be attributed to medications.
