- Tecfidera and psychosis
When our 31 year old daughter with Multiple Sclerosis started the 120 mg of Tecfidera, we noticed that she started becoming chatty-- talking more that usual. After a week on the lower 120 mg, she started on the higher 240 mg dosage. Her chatter increased significantly. By the second day on the higher dosage of Tecfidera, she was becoming completely out of control with excessive talking. She could not stop. We ended the Tecfidera 240 mg after two days and did not go back to the lower dosage. Her ability to sleep was diminishing on the lower dosage. By the time she reached the normal 240 mg, she stopped sleeping altogether. Even with taking 2 Tylenol PM, it didn't phase her. She could not sleep. We informed her neurologist and he prescribed the sleep aid Clonazepam 0.25 mg. Taking two tablets allowed her to sleep 7 hours--- but then she became completely Manic showing all the symptoms of Psychosis. There is no previous Bi-Polar/Manic in her history or in her family's history. Two days off the Tecifidera, she has become argumentative and combative. She is angry and impatient. This behavior is completely opposite of her normal behavior. The has always been one of the sweetest people on the planet. Any suggestions to help her get off this Psychosis episode??
- Ampyra vs kidney stones
Started taking Ampyra Sept 1, 2014.
Had a severe kidney stone in mid-September.
Another two weeks ago.
No family history or them. I also have no history of them.
Drink fresh squeezed lemon daily and lots of water.
Take Ibuprofen when it starts up.
Ampyra is helping with leg strength a tiny bit.
My MS is 40 years old so it is acting like it is old!
- Anastrozole pain too much for comfort
I have been taking the generic form of Aridimex for 1-1/2 years. My short term memory is extremely bad now. I have horrible knee arthritic pain in both knees, so bad sometimes I can hardly climb the stairs of my home. I have trouble sleeping at night due to this pain. I am much more short-tempered than I ever was before starting this medication. I have also lost a great deal of my hair (like male baldness in front). I feel like I have aged 10 years in the past year and a half. Too afraid of a recurrence of breast cancer to stop taking it and most other hormone blocking drugs have similar side effects.
- Dont use copaxone. it caused huge necrosis of my flesh!!
I took injections for 1.5 yrs. No problem. Then received a batch that caused huge indentions in my skin. I am a body builder, very obsessed with how my body and skin looks. Now I have massive (1/2 dollar sized) craters in my thighs and upper arms. I can no longer compete. Copaxone ruined my life. So sad, I was diagnosed with MS, but it's the medication that destroyed me. it's the f**ing treatment
. Be careful. The drug companies don't care. They are just making $$$ off of you.
- Ms relapse - changed to copaxone in april
I've never joined one of these sites but saw this site. I have had MS for 14yrs but changed to Copaxone in April, had a relapse last week and wondered how others were getting on with it. I have a puffy left calf/ankle which can be a side effect of Copaxone - have others had this - can you reduce the swelling?
If I haven't started using this site - my apologies!

From this study (1 day ago):
Is it cause because of the drug
From this study (1 week ago):
Dupuytrens in left hand only- 3 small bumps, no pain and still able to lay fingers flat but difficulty in making a fist
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have been on Arimidex for 4 years. I can put up with hot flashes, hair loss, etc. These are least severe compared with the problems with my gums and teeth.
In the past year, I've have problems with gum recession, gum sensitivity, easily bleeding and plaque build-up. I started menopause 12 years ago and this is happening in the last year. Is it the Arimidex or just age?
