Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
Diarrhea seemed to be related to stress and foods I ate. Therefore the nexium. It was not constant but sporadic, yet severe when it did hit. Total clean out with shakes, sweating, clamminess, etc. Nexuim seemed to help. Ibuprofen was taken inconsistently also. When headaches came monthly or when my back went out, probably bi-annually. With the back pain I took the up to 800mg Ibuprofen three times a day. I haven't had a problem with my back for a couple of years now. I have been on a gluten free diet for several months now and only have a diarrhea episode if I ingest gluten somehow (learning). I still cannot eat soda, or popcorn? I no longer take Nexium or Ibuprofen.
From this study (4 months ago):
Over past 6+ years, hair has thinned by half.
help on Apr, 9, 2014:
hair loss maybe due to thyroid issues?
From this study (8 months ago):
Had very high liver enzymes just days after taking Bactrim DS & Ibuprofen 800 mg together for 2 weeks. Had dark urine & vomiting while taking meds. Had gallbladder removed and had trouble with blood clotting after surgery. Needed several blood transfusions due to blood clotting issues. Now have on going diarrhea, weight loss, pain and lethargy.
