  • Can augmentin cause caridac arrest 2 days after stopping taking it?
    Augmentin and Cardiac arrest - My husband (46) always perfectly healthy, took Augmenin 875 for 4 days after a dental treatment. 2 days after completing taking it, while running 6 km on the beach in the early morning, he collapsed with a Cardiac arrest (ventricular fibrillation). Luckily he was saved by a doctor with a defibriallator who was nearby. All the tests they run in the hospital show that his heart is very healthy and that he doesn't have any heart diseases. They are suggesting "Brugada Syndrom" but I'm not convinced. His late mother had a terrible allergy to Augmentin and almost died from it and his late father also had an allergy to Penicillin, so does his sister. When I suggested that the Augmentin might be the cause which led to the Cardiac arrest his doctors said it's not possible. I'll be glad to hear your opinions. Thanks, Michele

  • Can my symptoms actually pinpoint a cause/condition? (1 answer)
    I would just like insight on this. I'm on pain management right now, but it's just to manage the pain. Every thing else has really been not taken serious by any physican it office I've been to. Is this normal stuff many woman go through? I'm just sick of feeling like this between the constant pain & the daily having to pluck hairs it's insane. I'm in fantastic shape(used to be double my weight & now I'm 100lbs), the best looking I've ever been with a incredibly good looking husband & a wonderful family. My issues seem to detour a lot of things & while I'm young I'd like to get this solved or some type of solution to even maintain myself, not looking for a miracle, but would really appreciate answers.

  • Augmentin triggered polyneuralgia and ruptured achilles tendons
    In 2011 I was prescribed 2 ten day runs of Augmentin 875 mgs. for a persistent sinus infection. Within a day of the last dose of the antibiotic I began to have strange deep agonizing pain for no apparent reason. The first pain was when I was blow drying my hair. I turned my head over and down when suddenly I had an excruciating pain in my neck. My upper arms began to ache as well. Within an hour or two it went away. This type of pain continued for several days and I went on a regimen of Vit. C and lots of fish oil. It subsided. After several days I was napping with my arm over my chest. When I awakened I had the same excruciating pain in my hand! It felt like someone had pounded me with a baseball bat. I told my husband to take me to the ER, and I am not one to run to the ER for anything. He became very upset and then I thought, what are they going to do for me in the ER? I slammed my hand on the table, "No! This is NOT happening" That day I literally took an entire bottle of fish oil, 10 caps at a time, with Vit. C. The pain left and never returned. However, about 3 weeks later I developed ruptured achilles tendons in both legs. It made walking almost impossible. The orthopedist stated I needed to have surgery. I put it off for a long time, bought a pair of Croc shoes and after 5 months the ruptures healed by themselves. I have been told that only surgery could fix them. About 2 months ago I read about the side effects to flouroquinolone antibiotics and was flabbergasted to see that all of my symptoms with Augmentin were similar to the side effects to drugs like Levaquin and Cipro! I never associated the ruptured tendons as caused by Augmentin, but now I believe that it was a result of using this antibiotic. The ruptured tendons can occur weeks after the use of antibiotics. I maintained a healthy diet as well as continued using anti inflammatory supplements like fish oil and Vit. C
  • Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
    I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.

  • I need advise, badly ckd!! (1 response)
    The orthostatic BP started in mid April, I was only dizzy upon wakening then it would subside. I have never been a big breakfast eater so I started doing that. We were in Disney later in April and I was extremely fatigued, to the point of not wanting to walk, Disney would be the first time I passed out when getting dizzy. I of course said I had gotten too warm and was exhausted from work the previous week. The dizziness continued in the mornings & I passed out several more times. On May 1st, I passed out while putting my make-up on and hit my eye on the faucet and head on the tile floor, despite that I went to work thinking it would subside, it didn't. I went to the ER directly after work. They ran a B-met on me and my GFR was 11 and creatinine 3.95. They admitted me to a larger hospital for evaluation. While in there, they pumped me with fluids continuously, saying I had severe dehydration. My kidney function improved, my creatinine levels went back down to 1.34. After 5 days I was discharged and told to see a cardiologist and endo. The endo doc cancelled my appointment on the basis it was not his area. I had had a cortisol and ACTH testing which I guess was normal. I saw the cardiologist, who said it wasn't cardio. I had had an echocardiogram in the hospital and EKG monitoring. Cardio sent me to neurology, the PNRN did a basic neurological exam and drew blood for disease markers such as Lupus, sjorgens, hepatitis, ect. All disease markers came back negative, but my GFR was at 11 again and creatinine was 4.25, BUN 50 along with an elevated ACE level. They called me and said I sarcoidosis. I really don't have any of the primary S/S of this autoimmune disease. I don't know where to go from here, they are referring me to another neurologist at a bigger hospital. I can't live my normal life, can't walk on my feet due extreme pain and I pass out at least 2x a week, which is not good for my old body. My BP upon laying and sitting runs like 117/72, upon standing it drops to like 70/50-50/30. I am on 0.1 mg of florinef, I tried increasing it but then my legs swelled up for a gain of 23#. I talked to Mayo Clinic today and all there specialists are booked out thru December. I have to be able to work, I can't stay home any longer than September 8th! Please advise me!

  • I am taking the Lipitor to lower Cholestrol and Ramipril and baby Asprin post heart attack in 2007 to keep blood pressure low and help prevent stroke. Recently, I had stroke like symptoms, and was put on Clopidogrel. Tests for stroke were negative, but the Clopidogrel was prescribed as a prophylaxis. Shortly after starting it, I started having constipation, which I had never had to such an extent before that. I haven't seen anywhere that clopidogrel was associated with constipation, but perhaps the drug combinations is at fault. The shoulder joint pain could be just old age. I had a dislocated shoulder and torn tendons in left side about 10 years ago. I was told because of the damage, that shoulder would become arthritic, but that doesn't explain the right shoulder, which has similar symptoms.

  • Most of these symptoms started with the use of cozaar. I would like to cease using this drug since the confusion and memory loss is becoming acute and intolerable
