- Horrible bursitis while on simvastatin & low dose aspirin
Horrible Bursitis in Hips and Shoulders. Resistant to multiple cortisone shots. Cost me multiple Orthopedic appointments and MRI.
- Lamotrigine severe rash
I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.
- Coughing up blood after using symbicort inhaler
First time I used Symbicort Inhaler, I immediately coughed freely, but noticed it was bright red, blood. Second time I used it- same thing. Third time I used it, I coughed about an hour later a larger amount of blood in phlegm. I'm reluctant to use the medication any further-I will consult my doctor after the weekend.
- Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
- Atrial fibrilation caused by levoflacin
Have twice used levoflaxin 500 for diverticulitis both times resulted in flutter and atrial fibrillation. I have a history of a fib and have had an ablation. I don't recommend this drug if you have a history, or are prone to it
