  • Does/can inulin (chicory root extract) interact with lithium?
    I am taking all these antibiotics for 14 days to get rid of the H Pylori bacteria in my stomach. I want to replace the good bacteria lost and avoid diahhrea by taking a probiotic daily. However, I have noticed the use of inulin (chicory root extract) in the probiotic. I need to know if I can take the probiotic -- (includes chicory root) with my daily medication -- namely lithium or will there be a drug interaction between them or increase/decrease of my lithium blood level? Thank you!

  • Interactions between quineprox (hydroxychloroquine) &zyvox (linezolid)
    I had foot soft tissue infection and hospitalized for two days and given IV for Cipro. Then I was released from the hospital and given Zyvox 600MG twice a day for ten days. Meanwhile, I am taking 2000 MG cellcept and 400MG Hydroxychloriquine for more than 10 years to control my lupus. Around the sixth days I had horrible joint pain for my whole body ans swollen on my hands and foot. I spoke to doctor, doctor said I should finish my zyvox doses since my foot infection does not cure yet. Then after two days I stopped the ZYvox, my joint pain getting better and swollen figers getting better but I feel headache and has fever. After surfing the internet, I found the interactions between hydroxychloroquine and the Zyvox could cause "The risk of peripheral neuropathy may be increased during concurrent use of two or more agents that are associated with this adverse effect. Patient risk factors include diabetesand age older than 60 years. In some cases, the neuropathy may progress or become irreversible despite discontinuation of the medications". I stooped taking Zyvox now, however, I am still taking my hydroxchloroquine and need to continue maybe life long. My appintment with my Rheumatologist is a month later. My pcp and Podiatrist seem have no idea about the interactions between the two medications. I would like to find out if I continue take hdroxycholoroquin, though I stopped the Zvox will still harm my nerv system? Should I stop taking Hydroxycholoroquine? How do I treat my headache and fever? Thanks

  • 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 illness was not recognized at first.

    So I was given some prednisolone and other drugs.

    During that time I had a joint pain and it was recovered. But after 5 months i suffered from this joint pain again and I'm suffering from this joint pain still now.I don't understand whether there is an connection between the HFMD and this joint pain
