- Is vomiting all liquids common while taking morphine (1 answer)
I Recently started taking 6mg of Hydro-Morphine per day for pain. Every time i take the drug i vomit up any liquids I drink. i fell just fine without anything in my stomach but as soon as i eat or drink I instantly become nauseated and vomit everything. It is hard not to drink because the drug is making me very thirsty. So i try to drink and my body rejects it over and over again.. this goes on for hours (3-5)because i am sooo thirsty that I can not stop drinking.
- Cold sore won't go away...
First cold sore experience. Thought it was a pimple and squeezed it. Swelled up, blistered, spread below my nose, about 4 or 5 bumps, scab fell off and remained pink and swollen and didn't go away or blistered. gone thru 2 bottles of tea tree oil. finally put bleach on it and that made it burn and looked like it was going to blister yesterday but it didn't and still swollen and tight feeling. Got abreeva and putting it on there and gonna finish the acyclovir. Am I going thru the norm? It's been almost a month I have been dealing with this and extremely frusterated. What can I do to make it go away?

- Nuvigil & prilosec caused horrible experience
Both the pharmacy and doctor didn't have this interaction in their system after 4 ER trips I finally looked this interaction up. The problems didn't appear for 3 weeks after I started taking Nuvigil. So I didn't connect the two...it was a horrible experience.
- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
- Farxiga caused severe cramps and vomiting
I have a history of ulcers but no problems in over a year. I have ulcerative colitis but has been in remission over 10 years. The very first time I took this medicine I had severe bloating and cramps within 30 min. I took it for 2 days with the pain then stopped one day, it settled down but did not stop. I took it the next 2 days and it became so severe I stopped all together. It is 3 days later and I'm still hurting. It is 2 days before Christmas and I'm not even sure I can get a hold of my gastro to check me. Stay away from this drug

From this study (5 years ago):
I believe the doxycycline is giving me this strange headache and causing me nausea and vomiting. Can I have it safely changed to zpak?
