- Xanax bed wetting will it stop and do i wear diapers or die (1 response)
I am on the very edge of crazy. So starting this is pushing ne way over. I'm 49 for crap sakes. I am so tired of the pain in my body and I am just tired, this is the last slap I can't anymore. Naturally alcohol I am sure is just about the end game along with cuts.
Just want to bleed out and not hurt anymore and be so scared to leave my house or sleep. I just want to sleep forever.
- Lupus induced by amoxicillin (1 response)
Was given Amoxicillin for Strep Throat and on day 10 I noticed a rash starting on my torso and began to feel ill, as if I had the flu. Went to emerg and got sent home with Benadryl. Woke up the next morning to the rash getting worse and an overall feeling of fatigue. Went to emerg again and this time had blood taken and the results showed an extreme rise in my white blood cells and by then, I had a fever. I was airlifted to another hospital where they did tests, but really had no idea what was wrong. I discharged myself with a script for corticosteroids and by then my joints began to stiffen, to a point of barely being able to walk and the pain was excruciating! I had to be cared for by my husband and struggled to lift my tea cup, or get out of bed. This lasted for about a month and then gradually began to subside. The doctors never did have answers for any of it. They chalked it up to an allergy to Amoxicillin. One mentioned "Steven Johnson Syndrome".
- Amoxycillin and ear popping.
I'm 30. I have otitis externa, but have never suffered with ear popping as a symptom. I had a flare up 2 wks before being prescribed this drug. I took a spay abx treatment which caused severe pain in my ears, so stopped taking that 5 days into the 7 day course. 4-5 days into my amoxicillin treatment for a uti, and my ears are popping. I have no known other medical problems, and am on no other meds.
- My reaction to talking sumatriptan for the first time.
after 10 minutes of taking the sumatriptan tablet i got all of the symptoms i stated and from those i developed a rare movement disorder called 'Dystonia' that has affected my right foot making me unable to walk and my right hand making me unable to write.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
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
From this study (7 days ago):
Difficulty doing daily tasks tire easily and get in very much pain
From this study (4 weeks ago):
For over two years I have had increasing trouble reason and understanding written and oral communications . My work has suffered and my bosses complain I forget assignments and ble others for problems. I had to resign a few months ago or be terminated . Until 2 years ago I had excellent reviews ad was told I was a 'star.' I have noticed my dyslexia has gotten worse. I can still type but I can no longer understand legal briefs that I have worked on for 25 years. Two doctors suspect Alzheimer's but because I can pass the 5 minute memory quiz, they won't treat me with medications that might help. I understand that people with advanced degrees and higher iQs are harder to test since we function at higher capacity. My dad had Alzheimer's. His Mother had early onset Alzheimer's. Also my Dad's mother's sister had early onset Alzheimer's.
