  • Can viread cause weight loss and low wbc count?
    (Asked by a 36 year old man who has Weight Loss - Unintentional, and takes Viread )
    I was diagnosed with Chronic HBV in 2012. The original viral count was 100 copies. It slowly went up to 12K copies early this year. I saw 2 specialists and one told me it's the right time to take Viread now and the other said it's border line and I could wait but it does not hurt to take it since it has very minimum side effect. So I went ahead and started taking the medicine in March 2014. 4 months after I start with Viread I continue to lose weight. All my HBV lab tests came back to be fine. About 3 weeks ago I started to have visible blood in my urine and I went and did abs ultrasound and even CT Scan and the doctor could not find anything. The only they found is there is viral infection in the urine. Then my primary doctor told me that my CBC blood result showed that my White Blood Cell count is extremely low and that I may have leukemia. I am still waiting for the most recent blood test from a hematologist. I am concerned about my weight loss (about 10 pounds) and my low WBC count. Can someone please help if this is related to Viread? Thanks!

  • Off label use of drugs for peripheral neuropathy causing memory loss (1 response)
    (Posted by a 56 year old man who has Peripheral Neuropathy, and takes Pramipexole Dihydrochloride, Tizanidine Hydrochloride, Lyrica, Bupropion Hydrochloride, Savella, Methadone Hydrochloride, Axiron, Baby Aspirin, Senna, Colace, Oxcarbazepine, Gabapentin)
    I have peripheral neuropathy with standard symptoms of burning, tingling, stabbing pain on the tops of my feet. I have had this condition for over 15 years getting worse over time. The last 5 years I have seen a couple of doctors and through trial and error we settled on a combination of Savella and Methadone to dampen the pain which can go from a nuisance constant 2 to "I'm ready to cut off my feet" constant 8. Taking Savella and Methadone keeps me at a 2 or below except in the evenings when it can get to 5 or 6 and keep me awake. Over a period of a year or so, and I can't remember when it started, I was given Tizanidine, Pramipexole, Oxcarbazpine, Gabapentin and Lyrica (at separate times). I do not remember which of these I was on for the longest or at what point I noticed I was unable to remember what happened the day before, conversations I had with co-workers, decisions and agreements with my manager and things I had done earlier in the week or month. I'm sure a timeline could be put together but since I had lost short term memory I could not do it even now. When I finally figured out what was happening, I was close to losing my job as a Computer Hardware Engineer, which requires extreme concentration and memory. I stopped taking whatever I was on at the time and looked for anything to help me regain my memory and ability to concentrate. I am now taking herbal supplements and using iPhone apps to help me regain concentration and memory. After over 6 months of being off of these drugs I am close to having my previous facilities back. I cannot stress enough the importance of a doctor talking with their patients about memory loss and the ability to concentrate when taking these types of drugs. One of my doctors just gave me Topiramate to try and help with the evening pain and after reading the side effects I will not even try it. Better to be in pain and keep my job.

    What really bothers me is I think simply taking one additional pill of Savella will solve my pain issue, but my doctors scoff whenever I make a suggestion and try to put me on something else. After making a medication suggestion one doctor threatened to take me off all medication. I guess he showed me who's the boss. All this is causing me to trust doctors less and less.
